Episode 137 featuring James Roy, Broker/Owner of James Roy and Associates, was a long time coming. Last year at a Greater Tampa Realtor tech event, I met James and asked him if he would like to be a guest. He agreed and I dropped the ball and never got back to him. Fast forward to the 2018 version of the event, and James and I reconnect. After apologizing, I scheduled James for Episode 137. Listen in as James shares his story, including growing up in Michigan, pond hockey, the auto industry and moving to Tampa to begin a career in real estate.
