In 2002, Jim sold his ownership interest in a national real estate franchise to pursue his lifelong passion - Construction and Agriculture. Fortunately these two interests came together as Jim quickly rose to Regional and Operations Management positions for three companies engaged in new poultry house construction, retrofits, and equipment systems. Jim and his wife, Sharon have continued in this enterprise as owners of Farm Depot, a Poultry Service and Supply Company serving poultry producers in the surrounding areas from New Boston to Sulphur Springs and Paris to Gilmer. They also own and operate 3-Broiler Farms near Mount Pleasant, Texas and are Contract Growers for Pilgrim's Pride.
Jim brings his passion, experience and expertise in the poultry industry to United Country-East Texas Lifestyle Properties. His unique blend of integrity and knowledge has been instrumental in developing a reputation of trustworthiness. Jim is driven by a sincere desire to assist Sellers and Buyers of Poultry Farms, Cattle Ranches and Traditional Farmers in the surrounding East Texas Counties of Camp, Morris, Franklin, Wood, Hopkins, Red River and Bowie County.
Jim and Sharon make quite a team and are highly respected throughout the area. The Garza's have 3 children and 5 grandchildren.
