A resident of both Wine Country and San Francisco, Jim Clopton provides real estate expertise for city and country properties. Jim’s personal experience in transitioning from city living to the private vineyard lifestyle which he and his wife Susan now enjoy is key to his success in assisting clients who seek a second-home or plan to relocate to Sonoma and Napa counties.
A graduate of UC Berkeley, Jim is former President of the Tommy Bahama brand and has been Senior Vice President at two Fortune 200 companies. Having worked as a top executive on the East Coast and in San Francisco for over 35 years, Jim has developed extensive relationships both here in California and in the North East. Jim has a network of high net worth clients and operates at a level appropriate for the most prestigious of properties. As Bay Area clients seek to discover the benefits of living on private exclusive estates, Jim’s extensive experience in land and property optimization, coupled with extensive resources, allow him to assist his clients with the complexities of private land and vineyard development which can include a broad range of issues from zoning ordinances to well and septic design and development.
One key advantage clients have in working with Jim is his ability to connect them with a network of friends and resources to enrich their experience of moving to Northern California’s famed Wine Country.
