Owner, Keyrenter Coastal Virginia
Jim Hassell grew up in a military family. He and his 5 siblings were able to live in many places growing up. Ft Walton. FL, Homestead, FL, Spain and Texas just to name a few.
After graduating from Virginia Wesleyan College at VA Beach with a degree in Business Administration, Jim found his footing in the automotive business. Jim has worked in the automotive business for over 30 years. Customer service and dedication to his customers are the cornerstone to Jim’s success over the years.
Jim and his wife, Susan, have purchased several investment properties and managed them over the past 15 years. This experience is what drew Jim to the Keyrenter franchise and gave him the drive to help others with their property management needs.
Having the right property management partner and the right tenant is the key to a successful, stress-free real estate investment. Whether it is a single-family home you no longer reside in or an investment strategy to grow your net worth, Jim is able to guide you through the aspects of pricing and maximizing the return on investment (ROI) when it comes to ownership.
Jim has lived in the coastal area of Virginia for the past 40 years. He knows the area, has established a powerful network in the area, and he understands the particular needs of its population looking to invest or get started with a fruitful rental property. As a native, Jim feels confident that by servicing this area they are establishing themselves and their clients in a prime real estate location that has proximity to major employers and attractions like Virginia Beach oceanfront or Norfolk Naval Base.
Jim currently lives in Smithfield, where he looks forward to serving the communities of the Greater Hampton Roads, also known as “Coastal Virginia,” where there is huge potential for high end multi-family and single-family home rental properties to thrive. Jim loves living near the ocean and rivers and the seafood you can only enjoy living near these waters. He looks forward to meeting with his clients to review their particular needs and goals to maximize the return on your investment.
