About Us

Jim and Virginia

James C. Hill

In 1958 James C. (Jim) and Marie Hill loaded up their single wide mobile home and attached it to their one ton Dodge pick-up truck and moved to Denver from Bozeman, Montana. In 1959 they opened up the doors to James C. Hill Real Estate.

They raised three children, Jay, Matt and Avalon in Thornton, Colorado. The kids grew up working on the rental properties - earning their pocket money mowing lawns, painting, cleaning, etc.

Jim is semi-retired and still works in the office part time when he is in town. Marie passed away in 1995. Jim married Virginia Stuart in 2001 who is pictured with him.
