Jim Winn || Principal Agent & Team Leader- JW Homes, Inc.
Born and raised primarily in the Montgomery County (MD) suburbs of Washington, D.C., Jim and Tessa, along with their 3 children, are grateful to call this region, home. Jim is proud of his military heritage as both of his parents served in the U.S. Army, and his mother would eventually serve in Real Estate for nearly 30 years, making Jim a 2nd-Generational REALTOR.
Prior to Real Estate, Jim served in pastoral ministry. He completed his Bachelor of Science in Biblical studies, some post-graduate studies in Seminary, and also additional pastoral training in his local church. While Jim enjoyed working in full-time vocational ministry and especially loving and serving people, a growing desire to transition into the marketplace led to the eventual career move to full-time Real Estate in 2008.
As the principal agent and team leader of JW Homes, Inc., Jim leads a team that includes 3 other licensed agents, full-time administrative assistance, and transaction and marketing coordinators- and therefore is able to provide enhanced, top-notch services to his clients – transactionally and relationally. Our team mission is “Exceeding expectations through successful negotiations and outstanding clients services.” And we have utilized the acronym SCALE, to articulate our pursued core team values: Serve, Care, Advocate, Love and Enthusiasm. Jim loves to negotiate, communicate, and has a fierce passion to love and serve his clients, each step of the way and beyond, in what is usually the single largest and perhaps most important investment someone will ever make in their lifetime.
As a Real Estate consultant licensed in MD, DC and VA, Jim is not looking for a one-time transaction, but rather aspires to be your trusted advisor who provides personal and professional services for life!
Jim’s clients automatically become members of his exclusive “Client Appreciation Program” in which they receive numerous ongoing services, and fun opportunities throughout the year. And if you need a good service or trades professional, Jim is happy to connect you to his network of business relationships through his extensive business directory. Jim is a long-time “One2One” and now in the next-level “Team Coaching” member of the largest Real Estate business coaching network in North America, (Buffini & Company) and leads a monthly Success Group for regional agents. Jim is also an exclusive member of Dave Ramsey’s Real Estate Entre-Leadership- “All-Access” program, part of which includes a monthly Mastermind network with agents across the country. Additionally, Jim is a certified DRS Agent, and has helped many clients in the Doctor and Medical community, as well as in the law enforcement community. Jim is also a Real Estate network advisor for Gary Clark Incorporated. Through these relationships, Jim is not only a regional, but a national agent, and with his high-level real estate connections across the country, Jim is therefore able to provide enhanced services to his clients who may be re-locating into and out of the area.
Aside from his passion for helping buyers and sellers achieve their home dreams, Jim is a sports enthusiast, enjoys physical fitness, reading, serving in his local church, (has coordinated Dave Ramsey’s “FPU” course), and hanging out with his wife and kids, family and friends.
