Jim Is a Luxury Real Estate Expert and Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES®) serving the Naples, Bonita and Estero areas. With over 30 years’ experience in both the luxury residential and commercial real estate markets, Jim has been instrumental in over $1.1 billion dollars in transactions.
Shortly after graduating Lynchburg College in 1983 with a BA in Business and Economics, he was recruited by a major New Jersey commercial real estate developer, where he immersed himself in every aspect of the business, rapidly establishing himself as a highly regarded and successful commercial real estate executive.
In the mid 1990’s, Jim formed an investment group that he headed to purchase several under-performing office buildings in Northern New Jersey with plans to renovate these assets and execute long-term leases with multiple Fortune 500 tenants. After successfully bringing these assets to stabilization, he sold his interests in 1997, which enabled him and his wife, Jackie, to relocate to Naples, FL to raise their two children and enjoy outdoor activities in the year-round warmer weather.
Both Jim and Jackie enjoy walking on the beach and enjoying the area’s nature sanctuaries, as well as traveling, attending sporting events and plays, visiting museums and art galleries, trying new restaurants, playing golf, practicing yoga and participating with the many diverse groups they are active with. Jim is also a former board member of the Candlelighters of Southwest Florida, where he advocated and served on committees for golf tournaments, raising funds and awareness for local children with cancer and blood disorders.
Jackie is a licensed real estate salesperson, who assists Jim with running The Trzyna Team. Their daughter, Heather obtained her real estate salesperson license in 2015 and graduated with honors from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina in 2016. She is now a Government Consultant with Deloitte Consulting in Washington, DC, and plans on pursuing her MBA. Their son, Erik is an undergraduate student at the University of Florida in Gainesville and an avid Gator fan and fraternity brother. Upon graduating in May 2018, he plans on attending law school.
As a Broker Associate and founder of The Trzyna Team, Jim continues to demonstrate his marketing talents and knowledge of the Southwest Florida luxury home market, keen insight of real estate trends, negotiation expertise and dedication to providing his clients with exceptional care and service. His focus is listing and selling luxury homes and condominiums throughout Naples and Bonita Springs, concentrating in Park Shore, Moorings, Pelican Bay, Mediterra, Quail West, Talis Park, Bonita Bay, VillageWalk of Bonita and beachfront condominiums, as well as numerous new communities now being built.
Recognizing the goals of the real estate buyers and sellers aged 55 and older in SWFL, Jim recently earned the SRES® designation, held nationally by only 15,000 Realtors®. This designation provides him an in depth understanding of his senior clients’ lifestyle and financial needs and providing them with the confidence that their objectives will be met.
Whether Jim is finding the perfect beachfront condo with a picture-perfect sunset view, or a spectacular home overlooking a scenic fairway in an ideal golfing community, his clients are able to relax, knowing that he and his group are handling every detail, while representing their best interests and ensuring a smooth transaction.
