James with Jones Properties

I am proud to have been working with Jones Properties as an Affiliate Broker for the past three years, assisting both buyers and sellers with single family residential homes, luxury estate homes and equestrian and residential farms in Williamson County and the Middle Tennessee area. I am an active member with both the Williamson County Association of Realtors (WCAR) and Greater Nashville Association of Realtors. (GNAR) The real estate industry is constantly evolving in terms of technology, procedures and informed clients. I make a concerted effort to remain educated and informed of these developments through continued learning. I am well equipped to serve my clients with the processes and challenges of buying and selling a property.

My Personal Story

I was born in South Africa and moved to the United States at the age of 18 to pursue a professional polo career which I did for over 20 years. During that period, I also managed the Nashville Polo Club. I am also proud to have been one of the initial individuals that helped start and continue to help grow one of Williamson Counties most prestigious annual fund raising event, Chukkers for Charity. Since its inception, the event has raised over $2,000,000 for Saddle Up! and the Rochelle Center, two local charities that assist children and adults with disabilities.

I am married and have three young boys. We have the privilege of living on a small equestrian property in Franklin, where we get to enjoy a farm like life style only minutes away from the unique and wonderful historic downtown Franklin.

My Williamson County Highlights

In 2004, I had the privilege of meeting and playing polo with Prince William when he and a few of his then college friends enjoyed an unofficial visit to Williamson County.

In 2013, I was involved in helping the show “Nashville” secure a filming location to shoot one of its episodes involving a polo match. I got a taste of the entertainment industry when I doubled as one of the main stars as a polo player.
