Jim Richardson - Lyon Real Estate

Jim Richardson

As a resident of the Placer County area for nearly 10 years, I understand the dynamics of this very desirable area. I am originally from Castro Valley a city 20 miles east of San Francisco, CA. This is where I met and married my high school sweetheart and after living in the Bay Area for 14 years we decided to move to Meadow Vista to raise our two sons, Justin and Tyler.

Prior to real estate I have started and owned many of my own businesses. I have worked in a number of industries which include custom wood shutter fabrication, industrial metal coatings, sales and installation of aftermarket 4x4 Truck/SUV parts and accessories. Most recently I started an ecommerce website selling Truck/SUV accessories called FoothillMotorsports.com. For 10 years I raced Offshore Powerboats professionally, racing around the country.

Outside of work I am very involved in the community and volunteering for organizations with my family. I enjoy helping coach my boys in baseball and football with Sierra Foothills Little League and the Colfax Junior Falcons. I am also involved in the Placer Hills 4-H club.

My goal as a real estate agent is to help my clients have a wonderful buying or selling experience. This process should be positive and memorable as it is one of the most important decisions of your life. I promise to earn your trust, and honor the opportunity to help you and your family.
