James Shive

In 2019, Jim Shive will have been a real estate agent for 12 years. Before becoming a well-known architectural photographer, Jim worked as a Realtor on the East Coast for the industry-leading Weichert firm. Jim has been employed by Prudential Sandia since he settled in New Mexico in 2008. In July 2018, Jim signed on with Keller Williams, the state’s most successful real estate agency.

Jim’s specialty is working with clients in the Rio Rancho, Bernalillo, and Corrales areas to buy and sell homes. Jim is happy to work with anyone, whether they are first-time buyers looking for their first home or seasoned homeowners looking for help in getting their home ready for sale, marketed, and closed. Jim is an expert in the high-end real estate sector as well.

We also directly contact and market to the top 20% of top-selling Realtors in NM, and Jim has had great success listing and selling homes that had been listed with other agents but had not sold.

These high-end marketing resources are only available to a select group of real estate agents. Jim is especially proud of the fact that he always returns phone calls and follows up on matters. Open houses, online promotions, banners, and display signs are just some of the other tools in Jim’s marketing toolbox when it comes to showcasing homes for sale.
