Real estate professional and former corporate strategy consultant, James Marchant builds legacies. For those fortunate to live or settle in any one of the neighborhoods within Salt Lake, Davis, or Utah Counties, James brings his versatile treasure trove of financial knowledge and expertise to create smart, diligent buyers and sellers. With his enviable resume covering a seemingly inexhaustible number of deals, there is little doubt that James can gracefully manage whatever his real estate clients ask of him. Whether it’s negotiating the price of a $6 million dollar luxury home or a $49,000 cabin lot, his primary goal is providing exceptional service and assisting his clients to receive the greatest value for their money or property.
Before real estate, James entered the arena of mergers and acquisitions, and corporate strategy, with his University of Utah M.B.A. in hand. He enjoyed a long and successful career with Credit Suisse First Boston and Morgan Stanley representing clients in structuring and negotiating large corporate transactions, and assisting in developing strategic plans from his offices in Los Angeles and New York City. James' experience also includes consulting with international companies in the U.S., Nigeria, and Canada with the London-based Euromoney Publications Consulting.
In 2002, James made a change and turned to real estate as a career in order to provide a stable environment for raising a family. With his extensive corporate transaction experience he has been able to make a difference in peoples’ lives, assisting buyers with sound financial investments and guiding baby boomers through the emotional and financial intricacies of selling the family home. James approaches every real estate transaction and every type of client with the same zeal and interest as he would a corporate deal, and particularly enjoys educating first-time home buyers. With a strong inclination for creating knowledgeable consumers, James goes the extra mile to ensure his buyers and sellers are apprised of all aspects of the real estate process. This goal has engendered deep trust among clients. Over the years he’s developed great friendships and is honored when referred to as “the family Realtor”.
James lives in Salt Lake City with his wife and three children. A born and raised Utahn, James loves exploring the area’s beautiful terrain with his family, whether it’s navigating the many backcountry ATV trails or skiing on its world-famous mountain slopes. James finds regular visits to the serenity and simplicity of the family cattle ranch in Southern Utah to be a great way for his family to work, relax and recharge. He’s a frequent spectator at his kids’ soccer and basketball games, and you may find him teeing off with family and friends at one of the many golf courses around town.
