Jim Dunlea


NRV Office

782 New River Rd Ste 706 Christiansburg, VA 24073

New River Valley Realtor Jim Dunlea hails from Illinois, but quickly fell in love with the NRV when he and his family relocated there in 2004.  For most of his prior work career, Jim worked as a sales engineer and then a product design engineer.  But when he was ready to change his career direction, he turned to his long-held dream of becoming a realtor.  With the heart of a teacher, Jim really enjoys helping his clients thoroughly understand the sometimes complicated process of selling or buying a home, so they can make the decisions that are best for them.  Helping first-time home-buyers is something he particularly enjoys.


Jim and his wife Cindy, parents of ten, enjoy camping in the beautiful NRV, and like to bring their lab/retriever along too.  Jim also does volunteer work with his local church, and plays keyboard in the church worship band.  As a musician, Jim knows you practice until you have it; a poorly played piece is unacceptable.  This carries over into his relationships with his clients: his goal is to give them a 5-star experience, and anything short of that, simply put, is unacceptable to Jim Dunlea.
