Jim has been a resident of the North Shore for most of his life. Born in Chicopee, MA, he moved to Danvers in 1961. Most of his relatives lived in Salem, so as a result he spent most of his childhood and adult life here.
After receiving a degree in Conservation Technology, Jim worked in Salem in the marine electronics industry before opening a retail store in 1978 - Armstrong Animals Pet Center. He successfully operated the store for 19 years, acquiring experience in customer service and marketing.
After living in Salem for over 30 years, Jim now lives in Beverly, MA.
Jim received his real estate license in 2000, and having found his new career niche, became one of the top 3 Realtors® in Salem by 2002. He was promoted to manager of the Salem office of Vernon A. Martin, Inc. Realtors in the fall of 2002.
Following in the steps of his grandmother, Lilienne Field, who was one of the most outstanding and respected Realtors® in Salem from the 1940's through 1978, James Field Armstrong opened his own office, Armstrong Field Real Estate. Like his grandmother, his focus is on customer service. He contributes his success not just as a result of his customer service and attention to detail, but also to his marketing and selling skills.
