Jim Slater’s approach to real estate is actually rather simple. He doesn’t consider himself a real estate agent, but rather a businessman with a real estate license. With his well-known reputation as “The Lakeshore Guy,” Jim brings a commitment that is second to none and impeccable negotiating skills to every transaction. Jim has specialized knowledge in waterfront properties and has spent his entire life on the water. He is a native of Minnesota and knows first-hand what living the lakeshore lifestyle is all about. He started studying lakeshore properties in 1992 and has spent the last 10 years devoted to selling waterfront properties. Jim is certified in Shoreline Management and has earned several awards. Jim has saved his clients hundreds of thousands of dollars in real estate transactions. Jim goes above and beyond expectations getting to know his clients, listening and understanding exactly what their lifestyle needs and wants are. Jim studies and locates the properties, which fully meet his clients’ expectations and will ensure that critical lifestyle objectives are fulfilled. This past year, Jim Slater was given the Champion of Hope Volunteer of the Year award. This incredible award is given to those that give their talents to bettering the lives of others. Jim Slater has donated over 300 smiles to Smile Network International – Smile Network repairs cleft lips and palates of children and young adults in third world countries.
