My first serious ventures were in the wholesale jewelry trade. Impressed by my accomplishments, several organizations asked that I create their sales training curricula. From there, my interests and activities rapidly expanded into real estate and construction. The more I learned and did, the more I was able to refine my approach into remarkably profitable enterprise strategies that others could also follow. Ten years after I received the Spectrum Design Award in 1997, the home building industry honored me with the McSam Award.
Executive stints at KB Home, Choice Homes, and Parkmont Homes proved highly productive. But I felt they were only a prelude to the ultimate step: I wanted to permanently lay aside the corporate security blanket and become a dedicated entrepreneur. Today, I still feel the excitement I felt then at the prospect of finally taking full ownership of my financial life.
I own a number of thriving firms devoted to marketing, consulting, and debt settlement. Presently, I'm completing a useful and much needed book on the last topic. Debt settlement, despite its popularity, needlessly baffles and obstructs many otherwise savvy people.
Living and working in the Dallas metro area brings me daily close contact with people from every walk of life and financial status. I passionately believe I have something of real value to offer so many of them. We all understand that the business of America is business. I have focused the force of my life toward acquiring the knowledge and skills reliably paving the way to commercial success. Such results can happen no matter what the underlying business environment. For me, nothing beats seeing the happiness my clients and students enjoy. Knowing that I have enabled their long-term security and comfort brings me profound satisfaction and makes my life worthwhile. Serving my community this way has been my sole duty and love from childhood on. Could anyone ask for more?

Team reviews

James and his team went above and beyond my expectations throughout the entire sale process. I was always kept abreast as to the status of my sale, as well as what feedback was provided after the viewings. His expert marketing made it so that most days I had at least one showing. I'm very pleased with the outcome of my sale and highly recommend James Hurt and his team to anyone I can!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Allen, TX.

Engaging James and Ginger to help with the sale of my home was a great decision. Their knowledge of the market and advise was invaluable. The process from start to finish was effortless. Over the course a long weekend, they listed my home, managed 6-8 showings, and then had a contract pending for a sales price higher than our initial listing. They handled it all; keeping me well informed throughout the process. I highly, highly recommend.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Prosper, TX.

James Hurt is a fantastic realtor, and meticulously guided these homebuyers painlessly through the process. We'd use him again in a heartbeat.

My wife and I decided to take the plunge and sell our home and relocate to another area within Prosper ISD. James treated us like we were his only clients. He arranged for professional photographs and helped us stage our home for a quick sale. Thanks to his insight, marketing and staging experience, our home sold in 6 days for full asking price.

Over the next several weeks, James showed us numerous online listings and took us to see several amazing homes that fit within our budget. He asked all the right questions, including plenty of things I wouldn't have even thought to ask. Just when we were about to give up, James found us the perfect home. The home was in an area we were initially resistant to, but James insisted on showing us the home anyway. We are so thankful we trusted his instincts. James handled all the paperwork for us and made the negotiation process as stress free as possible. His savvy negotiation skills saved us over $20k under asking price. This was real money we able to use for updates after closing. James made sure we signed all of our papers, returned all our phone calls and emails the same day, and treated us like we were buying a multimillion dollar home. He gave us recommendations for a lender who provided us with a much better interest rate than we were able to find on our own. After we finally moved in, James personally stopped by and made sure everything was satisfactory and we were happy. He certainly didn't need to do that, but it was an extra gesture that showed us he really cared.

In short, if you're buying or selling a home, you can't go wrong with James. Lots of realtors are offering to sell your home quickly or save you money, but James actually delivers results and treated us with care and respect. We love our new home and we have him to thank!
