Our Agents

Jim Renfrow - Broker/Owner

After earning his bachelors’ degree in business administration and working in the residential construction trades, Jim began his professional career in the building sales industry while also serving in the Pennsylvania Army National Guard.  He moved to Ohio in 2007 and started working in the commercial building industry as a project estimator/coordinator while simultaneously renovating distressed properties within Wayne and Medina Counties.   

In 2016, Jim became a licensed Realtor and immediately found a way to apply his “out of industry” knowledge to offer benefit to his clients.  Jim’s in-depth knowledge, of both residential and commercial building, has given his clients an advantage in both the buying and selling of properties and certainly plays a large part in his property management roles.    

Jim, with his wife Sharon and three children, lives in Orrville and is proud to call Wayne County his home.  Over the years, he has found fulfillment in serving his church, over-seas missions and local charities.  If he isn’t talking real estate, be prepared to hear about running.  Jim is an avid runner and competes in ultra-running events.
