James Carpenter is an entrepreneur and has lived from sea to sea with roots in New Brunswick, Saskatchewan, and is now residing in Alberta and part-time in Saskatchewan.

As a young boy he wanted to be a Police Officer, yet had an insatiable talent and need for business. At the age of eight he graduated from selling lemonade outside his family home, to making freezies – and sales went through the roof!

He spent seven years as an Auxiliary RCMP Constable, but it was the love for developing not only land – but people - that eventually won James’ attention. With a Business Education from SAIT, he began managing a grain trading company. James has an explosive capacity for starting up successful businesses and has initiated such ventures as a mini-storage business, billboard-advertising company, real estate (both commercial and residential) and is fully versed in the development stages of land from purchase, to construction to investing. James was also voted Top Real Estate Agent (CIR Realty) five years in a row.

“Every business deal I do, I’m looking for a lasting relationship, and in a lot of cases, friendship. I want to build legacy not only in my own life, but for other people too,” shares James.

“I’ve always envisioned myself as a person that wants to make a difference, through service or business deals. I always keep in mind who I’m dealing with and why. I formed a vision very early on of always leaving money on the table, and creating relationships where I don’t have to look over my shoulder.”

“I’m not a fence guy. I don’t live in a box. There are opportunities every day, and I calculate the risk and see what is viable. We protect our investors and want to make a fair profit for all involved, while also giving back to those in greatest need. We believe in under promising, and over delivering. I believe business is created through building relationships. Networking and building into people’s lives. A good friend of mine once said, ‘It’s a good thing when a man’s job can be considered his hobby.’”

For James, seizing opportunities that benefit all involved and helping people locally and globally fulfill their potential is what business is all about. He brings a vast ray of experience from construction to marketing to economics and development.

James also enjoys time with his wife working & travelling and his two boys taking adventures in the outdoors, and stirring in them a passion to give back.
