James Craven is the consummate sales and marketing veteran. Jim has been a resident of South Florida since 1961, and knows the region intimately. Having been ahead of the curve of real estate trends, Jim has been successfully investing in both residential and commercial real estate since the age of 28; in fact, Jim is still expanding his real estate portfolio.
Jim began his sales career at the early age of five, a remarkable story no doubt; he recognized the magnitude of “Branding” without knowing the term, and thus he earned his first entrepreneurial success by knowing he could sell old Titleist golf balls that landed into his yard for triple the cost of newer looking golf balls with lesser names.
Perhaps Jim’s greatest asset is his ability to anticipate market trends and his ability to understand how to market a product. He conceived, developed and launched Travel Weekly’s daily e-newsletter in the mid-1990’s, putting the publication on the leading edge of electronic innovation. His contribution as Marketing Director for our Keys Action Team guarantees a first hand opportunity to successfully position yourself with buying or selling real estate for the highest margins.
