Prior to becoming a REALTOR®, Jim spent 10 years in the mortgage business as a residential mortgage originator and underwriter, and has worked with hundreds of millions of dollars of mortgages. In 2006, Jim Stewart embarked on his real estate sales career by starting his own real estate brokerage. Since then Jim has sold hundreds of properties. His first real estate company was geared towards providing advisory and marketing services to sellers who were attempting to sell their home on a "for sale by owner" basis. Soon thereafter Jim started a second, complimentary company assisting sellers who wanted to harness the greater marketing power the Greater Springfield Board of Realtors MLS system offered. In late 2008 Jim joined forces with another existing local real estate brokerage to be able to provide even greater service and services to his clients and customers. Now, in order to take his business to another level and be able to provide even greater power to his clients, Jim has joined forces with the company which sells more homes than any other real estate firm in the world.
