Jim moved to the Wallenpauapck area in the early 50’s. Even after spending years in the Air Force, traveling all over the world, and being honorably discharged, he was drawn back to the Lake area. With his skills gained from the military, putting up communications towers, he found a home working with PPL as a lineman for over 35 years.
During which time he obtained his real estate license. Upon retirement from PPL in the 90’s, Jim already had extensive understanding and knowledge of the people and the real estate in the tri-state area. So, to put his skills, knowledge, and love of the area to work, Jim joined the top selling real estate company of the tri-state area—Davis R. Chant Realtors.
Jim has been working as one of the top salespeople for Chant Realtors Lake Wallenpaupack office for over 20 years. Working as a full-time agent he is more than willing to accommodate your needs in looking for that perfect property or home of your dreams. If you are thinking of moving to another area and want to sell, Jim can find you the buyer to make your transition smooth and enjoyable.
Always wanting to keep his thumb on the pulse of the real estate market Jim serves on the Pike County Board of Tax Appeals and board of reviews; is a member of the Pike/Wayne Board of Realtors, the National Association of Realtors, and the PA Association of Realtors; and attends updated real estate courses to maintain his license in the state of Pennsylvania. With his experience and knowledge, he is highly qualified to give accurate property evaluations to those considering listing their homes on the market.
Jim resides in Paupack. He is a proud father of four and grandfather of 11. He enjoys spending time with his grandkids and watching them play their sports, his antique truck (see inside for photo), hunting, fishing, golfing, sailing, boating, traveling, and skydiving.
He welcomes you to enjoy all that Lake Wallenpaupack has to offer!
