Purpose, passion, patience, and persistence: These are the four values that REALTOR® James Fisher lives by. James believes that when something drives you, it’s much more than a goal—it’s truly a standard you live by, and that is your purpose. James also believes that passion is what keeps you excited, patience must be consistently practiced and requires discipline, and persistence is about the never-ending pursuit, the reason to win, and the reason why James never gives up!
This is James’ first year in real estate and his approach has three key disciplines Communication, Empathy, and Listening. These three key steps help James to identify and cater to each individual’s needs; James knows that while many people have different preferences, in the end, we’re all just people with similar basic needs! James is passionate about personal development, and he feels that he owes it to the people around him to bring his best self to the table every day. The most satisfying thing to James is knowing that everyone he works with has been heard, and has the confidence to speak and be involved.
Currently, James lives in North Tacoma, and before becoming a REALTOR® he worked for a few local family-owned companies within the hospitality industry. This experience helped him focus and develop his professionalism, and he learned the value and consequences of being a leader. James learned to continuously educate himself, to seek knowledge and identify the value from other’s experiences. He also learned to never ask someone to do something that he would not do himself. James believes that it is not what you do in your life, but who you bring up with you in the process that truly matters.
Q: What can clients expect when working with you? How do you typically communicate with them?
A: I am very genuine and truly enjoy helping others, this is what drew me towards the hospitality industry. Once in the hospitality industry, I wanted to help beyond the scope of our guests and I became involved with training and development. I take the time to listen, and I have a deep and empathetic approach to challenges. Transparency is vital to ensure functionality isn’t jeopardized.
The thing that makes me unique is my level of optimism and genuine joy from helping others attain the things they desire most. I have always had the ability to remain poised under high-stress situations so that others have a positive example and a natural sense of security when working with me.
