Jim McInerney has been in the real estate business for 19 years, working for several premier luxury brokerages servicing the gorgeous La Jolla, California area. But it wasn’t until the COVID-19 outbreak that he knew things needed to change.
“In the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, with storefronts and offices closed and businesses transitioning to home offices, we recognized the power of working with a 100% virtually based real estate brokerage,” said McInerney. “Our team joined eXp Realty to access the powerhouse that is the fastest-growing real estate firm with the most forward-thinking business model.”
McInerney was previously affiliated with Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty, but in March, moved his four-person team to eXp. In 2019, his team closed on 35 transactions for a total of $50,350,000 in sales.
McInerney also cited eXp’s additional revenue streams and the ability to purchase stock at a discount with each closing to be attractive in building a retirement nest egg.
“It can become a way to earn leveraged income as I get older and give me more time back,” said McInerney.
Prior to doing real estate, McInerney was a class action investigator for 10 years, handling 60 cases, which resulted in $1 billion in judgments.
He says he learned a thing or two about getting results and interacting with all walks of life, which set the stage for a prosperous transition into luxury real estate, handling La Jolla and Coastal San Diego.
And, apparently, McInerney’s golden touch continues as he said his first transaction as an eXp agent was a $4,795,000 closing.
McInerney’s passions outside of real estate and spending time with his family include playing guitar, traveling and, of course, surfing those beautiful waves off the La Jolla coast and beyond, including the most challenging waves he can find at Sunset Beach in Hawaii and Cloudbreak Reef in Fiji.
