James was born and raised in Lexington, NC (the BBQ Capital of the World!). For more than five years, he worked as a store manager, then a district manager for a wireless retailer, managing stores in Winston-Salem, Charlotte, Concord, Pineville, Matthews, Spartanburg, and Greenville. After living in Charlotte for three years, James moved to Greenville and fell in love with the Upstate. James currently lives in North Main area of Greenville with his three dogs, Domino, a Parson Jack Russell, and Graycie Mae, an Italian Greyhound, and an American Staffordshire Terrier, Faith, who was rescued after being thrown from a car. Prior to moving to the North Main area, James, Domino, & Graycie lived in the Overbrook area of town, as well as the Augusta Road area where James and his partner renovated a condo at McDaniel Heights. James graduated from The Wyatt Real Estate Institute in 2005. He then served as First Vice Chair of the Greenville County Democratic Party. In 2009, James was selected as one of Greenville’s Best and Brightest 35 and under by Greenville Magazine and in 2015 was selected as part of The Greenville Chamber of Commerce’s year long Leadership Greenville Class 42. James is very active in both local and statewide politics and has served as the First Vice Chair of the Greenville County Democratic Party in 2011-2012 as well as a Greenville County and South Carolina Delegate. In November 2013, James was named one of the Top 99 Realtors on Twitter by WebsiteBox as well as one of the 32 Most Popular Realtor’s in America by Home Buyer Nation. He has served on Greenville Forward’s Inclusion Task Force Committee as well as the Buildings & Grounds and Communications Committees at the YWCa of Greenville. He is a Charter Member of Greenville Rotary and served as the Social Media VP in 2011-2012. In 2012 he joined the Julie Valentine Center Run2Overcome 5k/10k Committee and later joined the Board of Directors for The Julie Valentine Center from 2012 – 2015. James served as a Commissioner on the Greenville Municipal Elections Commission from 2015 – 2017 and is currently the Chairman of the Greater Greenville Chamber of Commerce Small Business Policy Council. In late 2016, James woke up during a stroke. By the time all was said and done, James had survived several strokes and a week in the GHS Neurological Trauma ICU. As a result of his experience, James was tapped to be the Patient Advocate on the SC DHEC Stroke Advisory Council, a council which was formed by the Legislature in 2011 to help adopt uniform policies statewide to ensure better care and a higher survival rate for those impacted by strokes. In addition, James serves on the GHS Stroke Advancement Council as well as on the board of Greenville Polo Classic which benefits the GHS Neurological Institute.
