In Love With Fraser Valley Living
James has been an Abbotsford resident for over 40 years and loves every part of Fraser Valley Living. Abbotsford is such a unique place to live, it has all the amenities of a large city, while tucked in amongst vast thriving farmland. Even after traveling the world, James will always call this wonderful community home.
A Bit About James
When he was a teenager, James’ parents owned the historic Bradner General Store and he gained a great appreciation for “small town – farm community” living. A strong work ethic was instilled in him from an early age which has carried through to his adult years and has proven to be a great contributor to his success. Since he has been selling Real Estate, James has been able to utilize his second language (Hindi) much more frequently. Clients have appreciated the fact that their home is being marketed in two languages, therefore reaching a larger audience.
Life in Germany
James joined a band in 1998 and ended up touring throughout Germany from 2000-2001. His band played many festivals and were even invited by the German Police to play at their annual Ball. The band recorded a CD before they left on tour and were awarded a distribution deal throughout all of Canada. Their second CD was recorded in Germany and was given regular air-play on German radio stations. James lived in the small town of Hann Munden during this time and enjoyed experiencing Germany as a local, rather than a tourist. From it’s friendly people to it’s fast highways, Germany will always hold a special place in his heart.
A Wealth of Knowledge
When James returned from Germany, he decided to tap into his marketing background and started a company that coached other real estate agents on how to market their business. It was after a few years of doing this that he realized his love for the industry and wanted to be a bigger part of it.
