Jim is a multi-year member of the Roseburg Million Dollar Sales Club, is Secretary-Treasurer with the Realtors Exchange Club of Roseburg and combines 42+ years of Purchasing, Sales and Materials Management to help with your realtor needs. He has been a licensed Oregon realtor since 2003, specializing in Residential and Commercial real estate sales and Listing services with G Stiles Realty.
Jim is a 5th generation Oregonian whose Great, Great Grandfather came to Oregon for a second time in 1845. In a way Jacob L. Coon was like a Realtor. He knew where there was great land and how to get there. Through the generations of horseback ministry, tall timber faller and mill owner, Flying A and Mobile Oil service station owner and operator, and down to Jim, the first college graduate in his family...... hard work, honesty, good communication, client service and follow through have been the template to his success. One needs to treat people the way you would want to be treated and success will follow.
Jim is a graduate of Myrtle Creek High School and Southern Oregon University in Ashland. He is also a U.S. Army veteran, and a life-member of VFW Post # 2468 in Roseburg, and a life-member supporting the National Home for our veterans and veteran families. Jim and his wife, Genee, have two grown daughters and enjoy free time with their eleven grandchildren.
Jim is excited for the opportunity to become "Your Real Estate Connection"
Walt Gayner Real Estate selected the heavy draft horse because of what it symbolizes. "Heavy horses" are known for working hard, being patient, staying calm, being reliable, and being functionally flexible (pull a plow or wagon as well as being saddled for riders.) They are a symbol of simpler times and a less complicated way of living. They are the worker you count on and a sure-footed friend when traveling on rocky roads.
Walt brings knowledge "to the table" that has been gained through personal and professional experience. In addition to technical expertise through formal education (a degree in biological systems engineering) and work experience in manufacturing, retail business, and management, Walt has personally purchased over a dozen properties. From high risk auction purchases to "normal" transactions involving agents, Walt has seen his share of strange transactions. Walt recognizes it is all about learning as much as you can about the situation so an informed decision can be made.
Walt and his wife live on 90 acres north of Roseburg. They have horses, cattle, meat goats, a few head of buffalo, laying hens, and a young (and very helpful) son. Many of the animals in the photos on this site are (or were) theirs. He and his family enjoy rural living, enjoy living in Douglas County, and completely understand why others want the same thing.
