YOUR Decisions Based on MY Knowledge
Originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma and raised in Daytona Beach, Florida. My family owned a gas station business and from a young age I was involved in the day to day operations of multiple stores. I owe my real estate career to my mother who convinced me at the young age of 25 to get my Real Estate License. I began my career with Watson Real Estate in Ormond Beach, FL soon becoming one of their Top Producing Agents. At 27 I opened my first real estate company and have enjoyed many years of success as Broker in Charge, Real Estate Investor, and Property Manager. My wife Lisa and I decided to relocate to the SC Upstate after our oldest of 5 children decided to attend Clemson University. We fell in love with the area for its beauty and peaceful lifestyle. Real estate is our passion and once again we opened Tri-County Properties serving the needs of Oconee, Pickens, and Anderson Counties. Lisa and I live on Lake Keowee and love being part of the community.
I am a Listing Specialist with a proven track record for getting your property SOLD. Put my years of experience and real estate knowledge to work for you.
Awards & Designations
It is rare today when service providers actually do what they say they will do. Tri-County Properties is one such example. From start to finish (which wasn’t long) they performed beyond expectations. Melanie, actually anticipated and answered some of my questions before I asked. My only issue, was we were hoping to have one more summer on the lake when we listed our home in March. When we had a contract nine days later we quickly realized that would not happen! I have, and will continue to unreservedly recommend ’s business to others. -Lis Wilson, Seneca SC
Jim & Lisa, Thank you so much for the wonderful “goody” bag. We took it up to the house to open with a bottle of champagne! Such fun and thoughtful gifts…and the knives are gorgeous! Lisa you’ve been so patient with us as we looked for just the right house. You and your team have been phenomenal to work with. We look forward to a long friendship on the lake. Thank you for everything! –Dede & Tom, Seneca SC
Jim and his wife, Lisa, met me in my home with enthusiasm for the prospective sale. Lisa’s pictures that were posted on MLS were very professional. Throughout the months of dealing with a buyer Jim advised me in a most positive manner. He had his associate, Melanie Evatt, keep in close touch with me at all times. I have and will continue to recommend and the Lakefront Team. –Cecile Cely, Greenville SC
I want to thank Jim and Lisa for the help you have provided to my wife and I during our real estate transactions in South Carolina.

Kathy and I would like to thank you for the service you provided in acquiring our lakefront property. We had just about given up our dream of finding a lot on Lake Keowee which met our needs. When we started working with you it seemed the dream became your quest also. There’s no doubt your knowledge of the area, market, and details specific to lakefront lots made our dream possible. Patience dealing with us combined with urgency in keeping us informed makes it easy to recommend your services to our friends. –Roger & Kathy, Simpsonville SC

Our experience with as our realtor was very positive. Living out of state and having no access to the area, we relied on the many and faithful e-mails he sent. When we finally started shopping, he was helpful, knowledgeable and patient. After our purchase he continues to be supportive and helpful. Thanks, Jim, we love our home and our neighborhood. –Wilbur & Darla, Myrtle Beach SC
