Jim McArthur

DRE# 01766468

Jim McArthur has been in and around, the Real Estate industry his entire life. Starting in construction building both residential and commercial projects, designing, financing, sales, leasing, and assemblage. The one exception would be professional-level property management which he gladly defers to others.
His first construction job was in high school as a shop boy and runner with Bernard’s Brothers Const. (now Bernard’s) in Southern California, where he grew up. After school he moved to Palo Alto, CA in the early 1980s to work in construction, he obtained a General Contractors License, where he worked primarily in the SFR housing market on the mid-peninsula performing client work. He and his partners were also flipping houses, long before it became what it is now. This led to doing entitlement work and small development work with some local partners.
In November of 1995, he received a patent that he wrote for a tool he designed that would help homeowners recycle. The tool is sold throughout the country and in some parts of Canada.
This created a lot of free time which was spent working with a friend doing commercial loans, which led to opening a small residential mortgage company that was run from his office in Sunnyvale, CA until the financial crisis in 2008.
He returned to the construction industry as a project manager for a commercial contractor in the Bay Area.
Jim was later recruited to Intero Commercial by the division manager because of his vast experience and contacts. He has been active in the industry for 8 + years, Jim has focused on Office Sales/leasing, Multifamily, and selling developed projects with entitlements. He has found success putting together “Assemblages” and disposition to large established developers.
Jim recently sold a 6-parcel assemblage in Downtown San Jose to Urban Community. This is one of the area’s largest multiparcel assemblages that sold at the time for a record price.
