Jim Hegemier, Your Florida Real Estate Expert

Representing all of Sarasota and Manatee Counties for almost 25 years, Jim is committed to listening to his clients needs by using his experience and skills.  Being a longtime resident in the “North River” area, Jim knows the real estate market for residential products more than anyone.  With all of the changes and growth occurring in Parrish and Ellenton, Jim feels that his clients need to be in “the know”.  It helps to live here, work here, and play here.

For buyers, Jim uses a “quiet energy” approach; finding the right home may take time and patience to make that perfect fit. Jim feels there is no room for high pressure or quick sales tactics for such a serious investment.  However, when it comes time to negotiate, Jim’s experience and “get it done” attitude has been appreciated by hundreds of his clients.   This is especially true in the NEW CONSTRUCTION market.  New construction customers rely on his experience and education that actually saves them money at the closing.

For sellers, there are a lot of moving parts in the marketing of your home to achieve the highest price in the shortest amount of time.  Jim has built a loyal customer base because of his professional attitude and integrity.  Jim has “tons of tools” in his toolbox to ensure a smooth transaction.

Jim is also highly active in his community as a commissioner for the Manatee County Housing Authority which assist in obtaining housing for the low income and less fortunate.  Jim and his wife of 37 years also participate in several ministries and outreaches in the local area.

Jim is happy to share his valuable list of vendors, community contacts, mortgage lenders, and real estate insiders with you at anytime.  “It pays to know people who know people.”
