Who We Are
Jim Munn – Managing Broker
From the time I graduated from high school, real estate has been the focus. No life changes, just the love of seeing unique homes and properties. As a student of finance at Seattle Pacific University, I was mentored by the graduate teacher of the real estate investment, as his personal property manager. I learned the way to market apartments, rooming houses and homes in Seattle, I was based in the U-District near UW, on frat row, managing over 200 units.
After graduating the trenches and SPU in 1984, I managed new luxury apartments full time in the Westlake area of Queen Anne for Cosmos International. I was responsible for the comforts of high profile sports athletes and actors. Next, I worked for MacPherson’s Real Estate as a salesman in 1987 in the University District, then later as an agent for Home Realty at Greenlake.
From there a choice was made to leave the big city and sell land in the country, returning to the family homestead at Lake Leland, Washington.
Life is good on the farm!
I started my career in real estate in 1995 working for Johnston Realty, then moving on to Windermere in Quilcene – which gives me over 20 year of local experience. Jim and I jumped into business for ourselves as Munn Bro’s Hood Canal Real Estate in 2010.
My particular area of expertise is working with raw land and development, including managing septic design and installations, and performing inspections for home construction.
I am also a notary and therefore able to help out with any paperwork, which may be needed during the process of construction.
When I’m not at work you may often find me boating and enjoying the Pacific Northwest outdoors.
In the Quilcene Community since 1888
For generations, the Munn clan has called the Hood Canal and Jefferson County area home.
Hector John Munn, Bruce and Jim’s father and a retired college chemistry teacher, wrote a number of books on the story of their family’s origins in the Quilcene area using various family documents as primary sources in his research.
In fact, the family still own 130 acres of the land by Lake Leland once owned by Jim and Ana Munn (Bruce and Jim’s Great-Grandparents). The community is now a part of Quilcene, Washington.
