Windermere Real Estate Southern California is proud to welcome Realtor® Jim Knickerbocker to the La Quinta office, located at 47-250 Washington Street. Jim has been in the real estate industry since 2000 and earned his license in 2006. With a strong background in real estate and client service, Jim is looking forward to expanding his services from La Quinta to the surrounding communities, helping buyers and sellers accomplish their real estate goals.
Jim’s family has been in real estate since the 1960s, exposing him to the business from an early age. From working for his father’s flooring contractor company to being a partner in an industrial real estate development group with his uncle, Jim quickly became engrossed in the real estate market. “My interest in home sales and real estate began in the ‘70s when I was working in new home development design centers for my father’s flooring business, working with clients on upgrades and giving recommendations on materials,” says Jim. “Being a part of the sales process was exciting, especially seeing the satisfaction from a client when we worked together to find the right solution.”
The professional experience gained from working in the design centers and as a project manager in the industrial firm has given Jim a unique perspective on real estate, which he couples with his personal experiences from owning investment properties, to offer rare insight to clients so they may make the best decisions possible. “I have a good feel for the different markets in the valley as well as my own eye for investment opportunities based on my clients’ needs,” he continues. “I help guide my clients down the right path and make sure that the approach they take is in their best interest.”
When asked what keeps his passion for real estate so high, Jim cites the challenge of finding the perfect fit for his clients. “I love the hunt and delivering for my clients. It is such a great feeling when it all comes together.” Clients enjoy working with Jim because of his honesty and attentive approach to client service. “I make sure that I am available for my clients, focused on their needs, and will do what it takes to accommodate them,” Jim adds.
Citing Windermere’s broad presence in the Coachella Valley, Jim felt comfortable joining the brokerage. “I like the fact that I can work from any of our offices, which makes it easier to do business.” Jim is also excited about the educational opportunities Windermere provides. “Windermere offers access to resources I would not have at other companies,” he concludes.
“We are proud to welcome Jim to our family at the La Quinta office,” says Managing Broker Sandy Beakey. “His deep background in the development process and sales lends itself perfectly to helping clients achieve their real estate goals.”
