Owner – County Air Commercial
Jim was born and raised in California and began his professional career successfully owning and operating several small businesses. He began in the printing industry where his enterprises: Pacific Press, East West Graphics, Jamar Travel Group & JLM Marketing (all separate entities) helped lay the groundwork and serve his future in Commercial Real Estate.Jim holds degrees in Accounting and Marketing and has successfully completed numerous Real Estate Courses. He served four years in the United States Coast Guard, with an Honorable discharge. Jim (aka “The Commercial Guy”) believes in the integrity of good business, honestly conducted, in consideration for the health and developmental balance of the community and its surrounding region. He is very involved in his community of Lakeport, and throughout Lake County. He previously served three years as President of the Lake County Chamber of Commerce, and participates in many County and City activities. Jim has extensive past experience in residential sales, and although he now exclusively handles Commercial Real Estate.. He sees Chamber affiliation as one avenue where a variety of business minds can pool their experience and knowledge into productive dialog and action. He sees being a Director as an opportunity to envision how – business-to-business – solutions can be developed. Jim believes that it’s important for each of us in business, in Lake County, to try to connect and assist in some way with the challenges we all commonly face: overall economic growth, revisions and renovations where needed, the attraction of business venues we lack and conscientious maintenance of the treasures our County offers. In fact, Jim sees business and community service mutually interdependent! Jim enjoys spending quality time with his wife, Marcii, his six children and many grandchildren. He plays Raquetball, enjoys fishing, biking, golf — and time on beautiful Clear Lake boating with family and friends! Jim’s decision to commit energy and ideas as a Chamber of Commerce Director had nothing to do with having time on his hands and no other demands!
