Tim James Jr.
Tim James Jr. is a native of the blackbelt region and grew up in Greenville, Alabama.
In his youth, Tim spent significant time at the James’ family farm located just 20 minutes from his childhood home. Tim comes from a long line of outdoorsmen and learned a great deal from his father and grandfather. He saw first-hand what it means to be a good land steward. He believes land is so much more than a place to hunt, fish, and grow timber or crops. “It’s an identity, a resting place, a safe haven and way of life, said Tim.”
Tim’s family ties to Alabama run deep. His grandfather was Fob James Jr., a popular two-¬‐term Alabama governor and his father was also a gubernatorial candidate in 2010. During his grandfather’s first term, Governor James was responsible for signing into law Alabama’s first state duck stamp which helped to ensure funding for the procurement, development and preservation of wetlands for migratory waterfowl habitat. He also established Alabama’s lifetime hunting license, so it is no surprise that Tim is an avid outdoorsman.
Tim earned a BS Degree from the University of Mississippi in Managerial Finance. He met his wife Ann Turner while at the University and they have one son, Tim James III. He held a Series 7 and Series 66 license working in the investment advisory industry. It was there, while working in the financial public markets that he learned how important it is to maintain a high level of care when handling investors and their investments. Those experiences have well prepared him to handle the specialty niche of selling high quality land to high net worth individuals.
Tim grew up knowing and loving the land and people of Alabama. “This area rivals that of land located anywhere in the country and I am excited to lead the expansion of the prestigious Jon Kohler & Associates brand into Alabama and offer a new level of real estate advisory services to landowners in our state, said Tim.” Tim’s background and knowledge of high quality land well equips him to represent the best land in the state of Alabama.
