About Jim Bobo, Jr.
Jim is a native Charlestonian and an 11th generation South Carolinian. He has a Bachelor of Science in Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Administration from the University of South Carolina and a Master of International Management (International MBA) from the prestigious Thunderbird School of Global Management. Jim also studied Mandarin Chinese and earned a Certificate of Chinese Language Studies from Shanxi University in China.
After working in Los Angeles in international operations for a major fast food company (including site selection, store design, overseas staff training and product export), Jim returned home to Charleston where he established and ran a consumer products design and trading company. He contract manufactured and sold his proprietary products through both wholesale channels and direct retail at a company-owned store on Johns Island.
It was while rezoning and developing a parcel purchased for his trading company’s office and warehouse in 1998 that Jim began working in real estate development, which eventually led him to become a licensed agent and Realtor, allowing him to share his expertise with others.
Jim is the Broker/Owner of SC Land and Homes LLC, author of the Charleston Area Real Estate Trends Report, and holds the Accredited Buyer Representative & Resort and Second Home Property Specialist certifications. Jim and his wife Deborah live on James Island.
