Jim has a family tradition with real estate- his great uncle, Walter Laufenberg, was President of the San Francisco Board of Realtors in 1932 during the Great Depression. Jim is a native of Berkeley, California and graduated from St. Mary’s College in Moraga with a degree in Business and Economics. While a member of the Christian Brothers religious order, “Brother James” taught high school prior to being assigned to the Christian Brothers Winery in the Napa Valley where he earned his General Contractor’s License.
In 1990 “Brother James” returned to “civilian life” in San Francisco, and in early 1993 was licensed. By the end of 1998 he was the top agent in his office. Since that time Jim has consistently ranked in the top three agents with Coldwell Banker in San Francisco and within the Top 5 for Northern California. He has served on the Boards of Directors for the San Francisco Apartment Association, California State Apartment Association, Golden Gate Business Association and the Guerneville Education Foundation.
