Growing up in a family of seven children, Jim Slater was a typical active boy who played baseball, football and hockey. But the memories that remain most vivid to Jim are those times spent at his family's lakeshore properties on Prior Lake. Water skiing, fishing, cruising the lake you name it, it was the best of life to Jim and he still feels that way to this day!

A Guiding Philosophy
Actually, those influential days of Jim's youth spent on the lake helped shape him into the man he is today. His family enjoyed a carefree lifestyle, and Jim's parents always taught him to embrace the good things in life. They taught Jim to make the most of every day, whether he was working on his uncle's farm or swimming in the lake, and also instilled the value of helping others.

"My dad used to tell me to treat others as I would want to be treated, and always say hello, please and thank you. He taught me to do everything I can for other people, and those lessons remain with me to this day," Jim says.

Rockin' Around the World
To Jim, life is an adventure that's meant to be enjoyed. After high school and through college, Jim's ties in a rock 'n' roll band led to an opportunity to work with some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry. Jim's business savvy and expertise in sound and lighting soon found him on tour with Genesis, Wayne Newton and Michael Bolton. He has also worked with Areosmith, Billy Joel and Elton John, and many other world-renonwned acts.

After nearly 15 years of incredible memories and a fast-paced lifestyle, Jim returned home and turned his energy to the lake. Combining his passion for the lake with his business experience and driven personality, he quickly established himself as the real estate professional of choice for anyone interested in waterfront properties. The rest, as they say, is history. He has consistently been a leader in lakefront properties ever since, providing his local insight and expertise to help both buyers and sellers make the most of their investments.

Nothing But the Best
Jim'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 to marketing that is second to none and impeccable negotiating skills to every transaction. But perhaps even more importantly, Jim cares. He and his staff of associates will do everything in their power to help make your move smooth and successful from consultation to closing.

When the time comes for your next move, don't just settle on a real estate agent. Jim Slater has been on the lakes South of the River his entire life, and his unique approach to real estate makes him the only choice for all your real estate needs. For the best in real estate service, give Jim Slater, aka "The Lakeshore Guy" a call today.

Jim asked what dollar amount we were expecting to asked for our house. He got that and above what we wanted. It was a no-brainer which Realtor to hire. His daily prayers for smooth transition were very wecome

Showed home in 2014 in Grainwood, Prior Lake, MN 55372.

For years we have been looking at different homes on line and other areas to live, never really feeling like we had figured out where or what we wanted. We met Jim at an open house on the lake and were introduced to lake living and all the benefits as well as possible regrets. With our permission Jim set us up with email updates on lake/water properties that came up for sale in the area, we could easily look through all of the listings, and watch for updates and changes. Jim was respectful and let us reach out to him when we were ready to talk about home buying. From the very beggining process of buying a home we have felt that Jim is a good listener and he used his abilities to help us figure out what lifestyle we wanted and what was most important to us. Jim then used his extensive knowledge of lakeshore properties and the market to find us a terrfic home at a fair price.  More Less
