As a Southern California native and passionate fisherman, I moved to Sun Valley in 1992 to become a fly-fishing guide and have been a guide ever since. My passion for fishing and hunting led me to obtain a CCI (Casting Certification Instructor) from Fly Fishers International and I am also a shooting instructor for the National Sporting Clays Association. I truly love and understand the mountains and communities that I am proud to call home.
In the early 90’s, I established my sales skills in the real estate market at a young age through Briscoe & Associates, specializing in the mergers and acquisitions of commercial companies in the United States and Canada. I have initiated transactions exceeding $60 million and continue to coordinate the sale of businesses from $3 million to $100 million in annual revenues.
In 2001, I obtained my real estate license in Washington state. I have been most active in the California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana real estate markets. Having worked all facets of industry, I understand both residential and commercial segments, but my passion lies in resort and recreational ranch properties.
As the son of a veteran Navy UDT/SEAL and grandson of a Navy pilot, I am proud to be actively involved in assisting the military with outdoor sports. As a teammate of Higher Ground Military, we use using therapeutic recreation to facilitate a change in perspective, giving injured Service members the physical skills, confidence, and coping strategies necessary for a successful reintegration into their families and home communities. I am also aligned with The Word of Honor Fund: a continuum facilitating events for the surviving children of SEALs and Special Ops personnel who die while assigned to a select Naval Special Operations Group.
With 6 beautiful children Sierra (15), Nicoletta (13), Rhianna (11) Ava (9), Huntley (3) and Luella (1), I have everlasting motivation to stay driven and pass down the importance of the mountain lifestyle.
I live, work and play hard in Sun Valley, Idaho. Let me guide you to your life here!
Jamie has represented us in several real estate transactions to our highest satisfaction. When we were first looking for a vacation home, he did research for us and found the perfect area for the needs/wants we identified to him. He was instrumental in completing the deal for us, so much so that we subsequently used him for several additional real estate transactions in the same area. Jamie is extremely personable, thoughtful, and easy to work with. You feel like you're being taken care of by a friend. He's professional, accommodating, and knows the area, its intricacies, and the market well. He works very hard to represent his clients to their greatest advantage. We felt very secure and comfortable with his representation. Buying property can be very stressful and challenging; Jamie made things run smoothly, and handled the stress for us. I highly recommend him for your real estate needs.
When we retired & decided to relocate, from CA to the Pacific Northwest, we couldn't decide which state we'd like best. Jamie, being very familiar with our top three (Idaho, Montana & Wyoming) did all the research we needed (or might have needed) & presented us with the pros & cons of each. There wasn't one question we asked where he didn't have a thorough answer & had every type of documentation, if needed, to factually illustrate everything to back it up. His expertise and genuine caring eased any anxieties we had (or might have had!) and our transaction ran very smooth. We always felt well taken care of and we were more than pleased with the entire process due to Jamie's expertise! We highly recommend Jamie for any of your real estate needs. His real estate experience (with industrial, commercial & residential) contribute to his vast knowledge of various aspect of purchasing real estate particularly in the Pacific Northwest. He's very likeable, patriotic, gregarious, a "family man" & has a authentic respect for the beauty and uniqueness of the Pacific Northwest. We truly never realized what a pleasant experience purchasing our home could be! His dependability gave us a genuine sense of ease that we have not experienced before.
