NRV Association of REALTORS 2015 Realtor of the Year
2011 Graduate of Virginia Tech

Passionate about family, real estate & service

Orginially from Loudoun County in northern Virginia, James moved to Blacksburg to study marketing and real estate at Virginia Tech. After graduating with a degree in marketing from the Pamplin College of Business, and a minor in real estate, James energetically pursued the real estate career he had started while still attending school. He joined Blacksburg firm RE/MAX 8 as a licensed agent and has never stopped learning.

"It’s been thoroughly satisfying  to continually learn how best to help my clients in today’s often volatile and quickly-changing market. I am very blessed to work in a career I am passionate about," James says.

First serving as a dedicated buyer's agent on a veteran agent's team, James launched The Nolen Group in 2016. Still with the RE/MAX 8 brokerage in Blacksburg, but now a completely independent agent, James is excited to be building a team of his own, with his unique vision.

The launch of The Nolen Group makes it possible for me to connect with more people, and help them meet their real estate goals," James said. "We take pride in proactively adapting to this ever-changing market in order to provide a singularly satisfying experience for all of our clients."
When not with clients, James volunteers his time to serve with various professional organizations:
• Director, New River Valley Association of Realtors Board of Directors 
• Chairperson, Virginia Association of Realtors Young Professional Network
• Member, Virginia Association of Realtors Professional Development Committee
• Member, New River Valley Association of Realtors Professional Standards and Governmental Affairs Committees

James also enjoys attending Blue Ridge Church, volunteering for local charities, and spending time with his (rapidly expanding) family, including seven nieces and nephews. He spends as much time outdoors as he can in a variety of pursuits, often with his two dogs.
