Jim Pappas is a national award-winning realtor and a seasoned professional with over 30 years of real estate experience. Jim resides in Pennsylvania & Florida where he is a Million-Dollar Listing Agent. Jim began his career, after selling his 90 employee travel agency, World Wide Travel, to a billion-dollar national company. Due to his experience as a commercial and residential investment property owner, a career in real estate was a natural choice.

He also has been awarded the Chairman’s Circle Diamond Award, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ highest and most prestigious honor.

Jim has also been ranked among the top 10 Realtors® for client satisfaction by the American Institute of Real Estate Professionals.
Due to his negotiating skills, uncompromising integrity, and cutting-edge marketing strategies Jim now has an astounding sales record of over 100 closings each year. One of his favorite quotes is “The secret of joy in work is contained in one word – excellence. To know how to do something well is to enjoy it.” And that is how he lives his life; he strives for excellence in Real Estate every day, and that’s why he enjoys it so much.
Another one of Jim’s passions is tennis; therefore, he tries to play tennis and sell a home daily. As a matter of fact, he is currently developing a website, www.floridatenniscommunities.com , which aims at helping tennis players find homes in tennis communities throughout Florida. His main website is www.jim-paul.com .

Along with Suzanne & Stephen Block who have been in the industry for over 10 years.
Together, Jim and his team work with a wide range of clients, from first-time homebuyers using FHA financing to million-dollar luxury homebuyers and investors. According to Jim, “Since I’m a client-oriented Realtor®, my clients’ satisfaction is my biggest reward. Creating satisfied clients has been the key to my long, successful career in real estate. I believe in being readily available for clients, in communicating clearly and honestly, and in being a strong negotiator for my clients,”. It is this level of hard work and integrity that has helped Jim and his award-winning team build a sales record that continues to be unmatched.
