About James Swain

Here is a little bit about me; I was born and raised in Southern California. Growing up in Southern California gave me access to a melting pot of knowledge, experiences and diversity. After graduating from high school I joined the United States Navy. I shipped out to basic training September 1991 to embark on an exciting, challenging and rewarding 21 year career. Basic training was in San Diego, CA. From there I went to firefighting school in San Francisco. In February 1992 I finally got to board my first ship, the USS Inchon (LPH-12) which was home ported in Norfolk, VA. From there I was stationed in Mississippi, California, Texas and Florida. One of my many highlights of my Navy career was being selected to the rank of CHIEF PETTY OFFICER. While in the Navy I was blessed with many opportunities to buy and sell several homes in several different states as well as obtaining my bachelors degree in business administration. In 2012 I decided to retire from active duty and move back to the great state of Texas. There are many reasons that my family and I decided to move back such as the hospitality, culture, friends, schools and neighbors just to name a few. Prior to retirement I got certified to be a Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps Instructor (NJROTC). I got hired to be an instructor at South Houston H.S. in 2012 and have thoroughly enjoyed leading, mentoring and developing young men and women. In early 2018, I decided I wanted to pursue my passion in real estate. One of many things that I love as a real estate agent is being able to help and serve others. Serving this great nation for 21 years and helping todays youth as a NJROTC instructor has positioned me perfectly to represent buyers, sellers and renters to the best of my ability each and every day. It doesnt get any better than this! Aside from real estate, I am also super passionate about family. My wife and three kids are my WHY. Please reach out to me if I can help!

James is amazing at his job. He helped us through the entire process. With the endless questions I had, he was always eager to inform. Since this was our first home buying experience he made sure he broke everything down so we fully understood the process. We felt so safe with James as our realtor. If I ever buy/sell again, I would definitely use James as my agent. Highly recommend.
