Growing up in a family of seven children, Jim Slater was a typical active boy who played baseball, football and hockey. But the memories that remain most vivid to Jim are those times spent at his family's lakeshore properties on Prior Lake. Water skiing, fishing, cruising the lake you name it, it was the best of life to Jim and he still feels that way to this day!
A Guiding Philosophy
Actually, those influential days of Jim's youth spent on the lake helped shape him into the man he is today. His family enjoyed a carefree lifestyle, and Jim's parents always taught him to embrace the good things in life. They taught Jim to make the most of every day, whether he was working on his uncle's farm or swimming in the lake, and also instilled the value of helping others.
"My dad used to tell me to treat others as I would want to be treated, and always say hello, please and thank you. He taught me to do everything I can for other people, and those lessons remain with me to this day," Jim says.
Rockin' Around the World
To Jim, life is an adventure that's meant to be enjoyed. After high school and through college, Jim's ties in a rock 'n' roll band led to an opportunity to work with some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry. Jim's business savvy and expertise in sound and lighting soon found him on tour with Genesis, Wayne Newton and Michael Bolton. He has also worked with Areosmith, Billy Joel and Elton John, and many other world-renonwned acts.
After nearly 15 years of incredible memories and a fast-paced lifestyle, Jim returned home and turned his energy to the lake. Combining his passion for the lake with his business experience and driven personality, he quickly established himself as the real estate professional of choice for anyone interested in waterfront properties. The rest, as they say, is history. He has consistently been a leader in lakefront properties ever since, providing his local insight and expertise to help both buyers and sellers make the most of their investments.
