With a lifelong career in sales, Jim launched his real estate business after realizing he could provide a better level of service than the caliber he received from local professionals. After he and his wife Nancy dealt with multiple issues hiring resources to manage her parent’s rental properties and receiving limited guidance with their subsequent sale, Jim knew his expertise in supporting clients through the sales process could translate to the real estate industry.
Focused on the educational aspects and using his established talents as a facilitator, Jim turned out to be a natural at real estate. His reputation as a kind and generous man (with a Brooklyn-born sense of humor!) made him able to easily get to know people and understand what they needed.
Jim’s expertise in real estate contracts and ability to negotiate deals in the best interests of his clients set a high standard of service in the local market. Those standards got even higher once his wife became his business partner! Nancy Ward brought her tenacity and expert administrative skills which laid the foundation for their team as it exists today. Together with the addition of Michael and Katie to the team, working with the Ward family has become synonymous with a stress-free, knowledgeable, and trustworthy experience.
A Vietnam Veteran who also served in the USAF at MacDill AFB, Jim drag raced professionally for the Chrysler Corporation in conjunction with Don Carlton and The Mopar Missile. With his first successful career in medical equipment sales and services, Jim devotes his spare time to his family and to volunteering with Metropolitan Ministries.
