James Sanford

Licensed Real Estate Salesperson

I have been a New York resident all my life.  Growing up on a dairy farm, I learned early the value of working hard and working toward a goal. I’m currently living in Ithaca and renovating a single family home in Dryden. I began my professional career as an electrical engineer and worked in the engineering construction field for 32 years, including ten years for Thomas Associates on the Ithaca Commons. After seven years of buying, renovating, renting and selling homes, I am fortunate to be able to retire from engineering and focus full time on my passion, working in the real estate field as both a realtor and an investor. As a highly self-motivated individual with a strong track record in delivering high quality customer service during my 32 years as a consultant  Electrical Engineer, I am now a licensed Real Estate Salesperson working with Audrey Edelman RealtyUSA in Ithaca New York.

My passion has always been building and investing in Real Estate. My experience in owning and managing rental properties, both to renovate and maintain as rental income or sell has given me the foresight to see what a building can be, not just what it is. If your goal is to sell, buy, or build an extensive investment portfolio, my experience in both the construction and home renovation field will provide valuable insight for you,  my clients, to help you reach your goal.

I offer you, as my client, my 32 years’ experience as a consultant engineer/project manager, my seven years of renovating houses. I promise you my commitment, motivation, enthusiasm and integrity to help you reach your goal.  I will strive to make your transaction easy with open communication and hard work so you make the best intelligent real estate investment.
