Jim Jones | Managing Partner
Jim Jones is a co-founder and managing partner of Riverstone Commercial Real Estate.
Over the course of nearly 20 years, Jim has garnered incredible industry experience at respected companies such as KW Commercial, Caldwell Companies, Alpine Development Group, and Stafford Barrett Commercial Brokerage. But after years of working as part of other people’s organizations, he had a vision to build his own brokerage based on the principle of putting clients’ needs above personal gain and doing business with honesty, trust, and integrity.
Perhaps this notion stemmed from his college days at Texas A&M, where he was instilled with Aggie virtues such as honor, selflessness, and discipline. Or maybe it was simply a result of his belief that no client is too small to receive first-class service from a firm that believes in the power of a true partnership.
Regardless, Jim’s passion for making every client’s dreams become reality is well-established, and the caliber of his character is well-known by those who’ve spent time around him. Jim’s commitment to his business is surpassed only by his faith and his dedication to his wife of 20 years and two teenage sons.
Whether it’s family life, business dealings, or community work, Jim believes unfailingly in putting people first.
