It was instilled in Jim Noso at an early age, and it’s a journey that has continued throughout his life. 

Jim Noso still recalls the excitement and sense of wonder he felt when he stepped foot inside his father’s workshop as a young boy. To Jim, it was more like a classroom than a workshop, because every time he witnessed his father work, he learned valuable life lessons that stick with him to this day. You see, Jim’s father was legendary Finnish guitar maker Jaakko Noso, known for his detailed and unusual custom creations. And as a child, Jim spent countless hours working alongside his father, gleaning the importance of paying attention to detail and making sure every aspect of each guitar was more than “just right” – it had to be perfect..


To say those experiences had an impact on Jim is quite an understatement. In many ways, they defined the direction of his career and dictated his personality. He developed a love for woodworking and brought his own unique eye for detail to every project. He also shared his father’s perfectionist tendencies, for better or for worse. Although born in Finland, Jim’s family moved to Vancouver when he was 10 years old. After high school, Jim channeled his woodworking expertise and entrepreneurship into a career as a builder of in-home saunas throughout Greater Vancouver.

 During this time, Jim’s eye for detail earned him a reputation for exceptional quality. “My employees never wanted me to visit their work sites because they said I was too much of a perfectionist,” Jim says half-jokingly. “But I’ve always believed if you’re going to do something, you need to do it to the absolute best of your ability.”


After two decades of running a thriving business, Jim was ready for a new challenge. He’d spent so much time in homes throughout Vancouver, he knew the communities very well and had built strong relationships with builders and his clients. Eventually, he sold his business and made a natural transition to real estate sales, turning his business savvy and attention to detail to helping people make the most of their real estate opportunities.

Jim immediately knew he’d found his true calling. Since 2004, Jim has thrived on helping people buy or sell homes throughout Greater Vancouver. He loves that no two transactions are ever the same and he’s constantly being challenged to grow and learn. He also loves working with people and having the ability to make a profound difference in their lives. But more than anything, Jim excels at real estate because he brings the same standard for excellence to his clients that he’s demonstrated his entire life. He strives for perfection in everything he does and his attention to detail ensures that every aspect of your transaction will be handled with the utmost care and professionalism.
