About Me

About James Paine

James has deep roots in Palm Beach. Coming from a family of longtime residents, his interest in real estate started at a very young age with education from his grandmother Ruth, who was an agent with Martha Gottfried in Palm Beach during the pre internet era of Palm Beach Real Estate. While Ruth was living in the North End with her husband, federal judge James C Paine Senior, she taught James about how real estate investment works, how to negotiate, and how to maintain your professionalism and composure in all situations. Most importantly, she taught him to always treat people well, and act with integrity and politeness. Although James has a mind that is naturally geared toward real estate investment, his work ethic and integrity, and his willingness to go the extra mile for his customers, is what sets him apart from the rest. He is one of the few agents on the island that is experienced and knowledgeable in both Commercial and Residential Real Estate. During his 5 year long career as a Realtor, he has closed over $30,000,000 in sales volume constituted by both residential and commercial transactions, and has worked with domestic and international high net worth individuals. He speaks Mandarin Chinese, and has spent time in Asia marketing and selling real estate internationally. He spend his leisure time either reading,spending time with friends, running distances for exercise or listening to podcasts, usually involving real estate, current business, economics, or mandarin.
