Get to know James Marshall

    A native of Ocean City, I reside here with my wife, Betty, raising six children, James, Thomas, Robert, Kathryn, Kristin and Julie. For generations my family has owned property in "America's Greatest Family Resort", dating as far back as the turn of the last century. First licensed as a Realtor in 1977, I obtained a Real Estate Broker's license in 1980. During my career I have sold and marketed hundreds of property, helping families build "Waves of Memories", being selected Realtor of the The Year for the Ocean City Board of Realtors in 1984, and obtaining the professional designations as a G.R.I. in 1985, e-PRO in 2004 AND CRS in 2006. I served as President of the Ocean City Board of Realtors in 1988 and continue to serve as a Past President.In 1982 I became a partner in Robert L. Sharp Real Estate, a firm that maintained two Ocean City offices until I sold the business in July 1989 to Hager Real Estate, Inc., which merged with Prudential Fox & Roach Realtors on November 14, 2003.As a member of the Ocean City Board of Realtors I have joint membership in the New Jersey Association of Realtors and National Association of Realtors. I have been involved in many committees over the years, including Computers, Budget and Finance, Education and Indoctrination, and Professional Standards.Each year since 1992 I have qualified as a member of the New Jersey Association of Realtors Circle of Excellence, an award presented in recognition of outstanding sales achievement, and hold membership in the NJAR Quarter Century Club while receiving the NJAR Distinguished Sales Award.Within the community Ihave donated time in the past as a coach in the Ocean City Little League and Recreational Soccer, as well as membership in the Cape May County Civil War Roundatable and the South Jersey Garden Railroad Society 

Don't just hire a company, hire a person. Real Estate is a personal service business. Expect knowledge and skill from the Realtor that you choose in the areas of financing, contracts, negotiating and marketing.Whether you are looking to buy or sell a home I promise results and communication along the way. I invite you to call me to explore how I may assist you. Thank You.

Over the past 38 years the real estate climate in Ocean City has changed MANY times. The ability to adjust to the market changes and stay on the forefront of technological advances influencing our industry are important aspects to consider in finding an agent to assist you in your search for a home at the shore.

The strategies in buying or selling today differ from those used just a few short years ago.

By continuing to attend educational opportunities I've been able to advance my career through obtaining the designations as a GRI and Certified Residential Specialist, as well as being recognized as an e-PRO (Internet Empowered Agent).

Having been born and raised here on the island I can proudly state that I've "got sand in my shoes" and would be pleased to assist you in your pursuit of a "dream home at the shore".
