James R Jones, Jr.
James R. Jones currently resides in Petersburg, VA, where he was born, and raised. He is also a licensed Realtor in Virginia, The District of Columbia (DC), and Maryland. He is also the proud father of 13-yr old middle schooler, Jayden Renee, who is currently in 8th grade.
In 2017, James received the gift of life by receiving a kidney transplant from a longtime 30-yr friendship. The miracle of life was restored, and as a result he supports the National Kidney Foundation (www.kidney.org), and Donate Life America (www.donatelife.net). Naturally, he would want you to consider supporting either of these two find charitable organizations that are important to him should you have the opportunity to do so.
James received his B.S. Degree in Business Administration from Washington Adventist University (91’), located in Takoma Park, MD. After graduation, James lived in Maryland where he began working in the banking industry with Mellon Bank (MD) of Pittsburgh, PA. He also held several jobs within the real estate industry from mortgages financing (Xinnix Mortgage Academy 04’), to homeowner’s association management, property management, to his current position as a real estate professional with Keller Williams Richmond West, and a loan expert with Griffin Financial.
What James enjoys most about his profession is the joy it brings him when he has helped another person, family, church, or non-profit achieve their desired goal of purchasing their new home, or a church to find a new place to worship, or even simply to obtain financing to renovate their current building. Both professions afford him many opportunities to do just that.
While serious about his work, James also loves a good laugh and is an avid sports fan. Long gone are his days as Captain of his high school and college basketball teams. Now, while he enjoys watching basketball his favorite sport is baseball. A former player in local leagues in the Maryland area, on rare occasions he does get to play and flashes in skills on the field playing softball. Along with supporting local high school sports, he is fan of The Washington Nationals, Washington Wizards, and the Washington Football Team.
