Who we are.

The McCartan Group has been selling real estate since 1992 years. Jim started his career in real estate by selling industrial buildings; after receiving multiple awards for most units sold, Jim decided to shift gears, and started investing in--and acquiring real estate with--a few other private investors. Jim handled everything from the initial acquisition, to acting as general contractor and developing the property. He also assisted with the management of every asset. With his extensive experience in assisting buyers, sellers and investors in the purchase and disposition of all real estate classes, Jim prides himself on his dedication to helping clients reach their goals and his ability to strategically market properties and negotiate transactions. He has an ability to effectively analyze and communicate complex real estate models and markets, contracts, engineering reports and analyses, which helps him to expertly position and market properties to his network of local, national, and international high net worth contacts and clients. He is both a licensed Principal Broker and Developer in the State of Oregon. Since then he has grown a great team to help him produce more Real Estate in the Portland Metro Area.

"The McCartan Group is easy to work with and is extremely knowledgeable about the Portland market. When Jim calls with “good deal”, you listen. His investment packages are thorough, and they provide assistance through not only the acquisition but also the post–closing process. Part of the biggest benefit is their ability to connect with the smaller private investor. I look forward to working with The McCartan Group on many more successful transactions.”
