Jim has been a Realtor since 2001, representing both Buyers and Sellers to make their dreams come true.  He has a reputation for putting his client's needs first. Taking that extra effort to "Make Their Dreams Come True."  Jim represents both Residential and Commercial clients.

Jim became active in the South Orange County communities, and local government shortly after moving to Rancho Santa Margarita in 1986, as one of the original homeowners to this new community.

Jim is recognized for his knowledge of the South Orange County areas, and is clearly the "Expert in Rancho Santa Margarita."

In 1988 Jim became active in local government.  Initially, with the Saddleback Area Coordinating Council.  This group was recognized by the County of Orange to review development in the greater Saddleback Valley area.  In 1989 he founded the RSM Civic Council, to address issues in this rapidly developing community. The vision of this organization was to "Work towards Self-Governance."  Jim was active in the RSM Cityhood Committee working towards incorporation of Rancho Santa Margarita. 

Rancho Santa Margarita incorporated on January 1, 2000.  Jim was elected to the first City Council, serving as Mayor in 2002 and also 2006.  Jim was re-elected in November 2006 to his third term on the City Council.  Jim retired from the City Council in December 2010.

He now focuses 100% of his time and effort to his Real Estate clients.

Jim also served on the Board of Directors for the Foothill/Eastern Transportation Corridor Agency. The TCA has built 51 miles of Toll Road to serve the transportation needs of the residents of Orange County.

If it seems that with all this activity I might be too busy to market you home or find a home of your dreams, don't be fooled! Jim enjoys matching homes to people. If you like his style, and if he agrees to represent you as a client, you will have access to him from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm.  He has the passion and dedication to make this a very pleasant experience.

Buying or selling a home should not be something you dread, it should be something you look forward to.  Jim prides himself in making things go as smoothly as possible.

Bought a Condo home in 2004 in Lake Forest, CA.

From our first experience with Jim Thor in 2004 my wife and I again have reached out to Jim in searching for a new home that would fit us both for years to come. Because of his professionalism and experience Jim, once again, has given his time and effort in finding us a home we both will enjoy. His knowledge is very impressive, his response to each thought and question was immediate and his negotiation skills "excellent." If you are looking for peace of mind and less stress in your life please contact Jim Thor.  More Less

Showed home in 2011 in Trabuco, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA 92688.

Jim Thor is very attentive to details, and has many years of experience. I would recommend him for any real estate need in selling or buying a property.

Bought a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $275K in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA.

We could not have had a better experience with a realtor. Jim is simply the best. He's knowledgable and tries so hard to get you what you want. We hope to work with again in the future.
