Jim Baxter attended Michigan State University and graduated with a B.S. in Natural Resources Management with a minor in Economics. Upon relocating to Boston Massachusetts he trained as a Real Estate Appraiser with various local firms and within the candidate framework of the Appraisal Institute. Jim started Beacon Valuation in 1993 as a boutique appraisal firm specializing in historic South End and Back Bay neighborhoods. Jim also began renovating brownstone homes in the mid 1990’s and South Florida waterfront homes in 2003, completing 23 in all with total transaction volume of $10,000,000. Jim co-founded HOME Miami and HOME Fort Lauderdale magazines in 2004 which quickly became the go-to source for South Florida real estate, architecture and good design.
The magazines were sold to an international media company in 2008. Jim returned to graduate school in 2009 at Nova Southeastern University and completed the Master of Science in Real Estate in the Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship in 2012.
Jim believes South Florida will continue to attract a dynamic international population over the next 20 years and looks forward to being closely involved in the development and sales of a sustainable future based on smart growth strategies for urban and suburban living.
