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.

James was wonderful and went above and beyond to sale our property. We are a non-profit and had a 2 acre lot to sale. James was willing to take on this sale and was very successful in finding interested buyers. He recommended we spend a little to clear the land and make have a better "curb appeal." The investment paid off. Thank you James, you are the best realtor I have had the privileged to work with.

I had many other options since I know a lot of agents socially. I wanted some one new and it was a good decision. Jim was great. I will use him again in March. I went to the office 4 or 5 times and they were polite. The sale went smooth and I was happy with the selling price. It was very smooth. The house sold with the 3rd offer.

Jim had a great knowledge of the local area, which helped while my husband and I were unable to view properties locally as we lived out of the area. He was quick to respond to inquiries/problems and very attentive when we hand concerns about the purchase process. Overall, the home purchase experience was fun because of our realtor, James C Richardson, Jr.. He's a nice, friendly, won't beat around the bush agent. If you want a personable agent who will give you and honest, straight guidance on the housing market and home purchase process, go with Jim at Lyon Real Estate.
