I am Jim Duncan. The Realtor. The soccer player and coach. Partner at Nest Realty in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Friends who have known me for a long time call me Jimmy.
I’m glad I have a blog and doubly glad I own it.
I am not the representative from Tennessee referenced in this tweet:
If you’re feeling like the past month of real estate data releases hasn’t satiated your need for real estate information and analysis, you’re invited to listen to Matt Hodges and me this Sunday morning at 11am on WNRN radio. Whenever we do this, it’s a lot of fun – talking for an hour about real estate, mortgages, the market and often times quite a bit more generally leads to a useful and informative conversation.
If you’re local, tune in to 91.9. If you’re not local (or don’t have a radio) the interwebs have you covered.
We tend to prep for four hours’ worth of radio, talk for about and hour, and get through 20% of what we have available. Live radio is always a bit nerve-wracking as the conversation is largely unscripted, but the resulting hour podcast is something that:
1) Usually generates inspiration for at least five stories
2) I tend to refer to frequently as I typically learn something from all of the prepping and resulting conversation.
So … in prepping for the show, we’re tentatively planning on talking about:
- The Charlottesville real estate market (naturally) – how it’s doing, how it might do in 2013
- When buyers and sellers should start their respective processes. (now)
- Real estate assessments (they’re coming out very soon) and their impact on actual market value
- The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s recent rules (800 pages of them) and their potential impact on the market.
- Qualified Residential Mortgages (see above)
- New construction in Charlottesville
- Shadow inventory
- Redfields’ buying open space
- More quality inventory
After some more thought, I ‘m thinking we might talk about the coming Wegmans and Fresh Markets, energy efficiency in homes, realtor productivity … one of the best parts of these shows are the recap posts I write that afternoon or next morning, replete with links, research, supporting information and more.

Matt Hodges and I had a good time on WNRN radio yesterday discussing what’s happening in the Charlottesville real estate market, mortgages, buyer activity, real estate assessments, government interference, gas prices’ impact on real estate decisions, and a whole lot more.
I’m going to listen to the show (thanks to Charlottesville Podcast) and put up some show notes, but in the meantime, feel free to what I think was a pretty interesting hour of real estate. Continue reading
Tune into Coy Barefoot’s Charlottesville – Right Now! on WINA from five to five thirty today as I and one of my Nest Partners, Keith Davis, discuss the Charlottesville real estate market.
Topics we may cover –
- Where the Charlottesville real estate market is right now.
- Where the market may be going.
- New Construction
- Why and how now may be a great time to buy (for goodness sake, it’s not a great time to buy for everyone – it never is or was)
- The vacancy rate in the Charlottesville MSA for homes currently on … Continue reading…
Nest is about to make a huge announcement. A *really* huge announcement. Stay tuned.
And it is a big one. But …
Here’s the challenge:
We need to define how and why this matters to potential buyers and sellers in Charlottesville and Albemarle and Central Virginia, because it absolutely does matter. Realtors will get it, but I and we are more concerned about how we can convey the how and why to our existing and potential clients.
We know it matters, we can … Continue reading…
Since the start of my career as a Realtor, I have always been narrowly focused on my clients and their needs, but I have always also, by necessity been focused on myself – my career, brand, success. … We have shared beliefs, values and goals but recognize that the value provided to customers and clients rests firmly with the quality and value offering of the individual Realtor.

Last month , we had some great phone calls and questions, and although this time will be much shorter (thirty minutes in radio time flies by) I hope we’ll have an equally or more productive time. … Hint: Please feel free to subscribe to this blog by clicking here for RSS updates or here for email updates .
