Jim, Cathy and Chris, TEAM THOMSEN, are a family team who each bring special talents and abilities to their profession.

TEAM THOMSEN has long been rooted in California real estate. In the 1960's and 1970's both Cathy and Jim's fathers practiced real estate. In the 1970's and 1980's Jim's brother was a Realtor in northern Calif-ornia, and in the early 2000's Cathy's daughter practiced real estate in Corona beforemoving to Saint Louis where she now utilizes her Missouri real estate license with US Bank. Chris, Jim's son, is another third gen-eration Realtor who joined the team in 2015.

Jim, Cathy and Chris each bring special knowledge, training and experience to serve their clients in a 'high tech-soft touch" manner, all the while developing strong, sustainable relationships with their clients.

Cathy's MBA and lending background

Jim's undergraduate and graduate degrees in sociology, along with his many years of working in the local real estate market, have provided him with what he calls, 'on-the-job experience". 'Real estate markets
are cyclical, and to understand them and gain insight into the future requires knowledge and understanding of where we've been". As a Broker Associate and an active Realtor in North Orange County for over 30 years, Jim has experienced and successfully navigated many real estate markets with his wife and partner,
Cathy. Together they enjoy their grandkids, golf and friends, and are very active in their church where Jim finds satisfaction in his involvement with of the church's many Outreach Ministries.

Chris' Bachelor's degree and more than 20 years in marketing qualify him to offer the highest level of knowledge and expertise to TEAM THOMSEN's clients. Growing up in Placentia with his two brothers, Chris
started working the 'family business" at an early age. Chris recalls, 'Whether it was stuffing envelopes, dis-tributing notepads to doorsteps, or watering the lawns of vacant listings, I learned from Dad and Cathy that real estate has always been a relationship business". After more than 20 years of marketing experience with In-N-Out Burger, Chris has acquired a proven ability to effectively develop, manage and build relationships between himself and his clients while providing them with superior service. As a resident of Placentia, Chris resides with his wife Beth and their three children where he is very involved in their schools, AYSO soccer, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. Chris enjoys playing ice hockey and has been involved in league play with his brother, Andy, for many years.

TEAM THOMSEN is not too busy selling real estate that they lose sight of the communities that have supported them for so many years. They believe in giving back, and one of their favorite programs is the Christmas CanTree Drive. The planning of this annual event begins in October developing the market-ing materials and acquiring the bags necessary to cover over 700 homes in neighborhoods throughout the cities of Placentia and Yorba Linda. For several weeks in early December, notices are sent out, bags are dropped off, and the food is collected and delivered to the Pantries in both Placentia and Yorba Linda where it helps to feed the hungry and homeless throughout the Holiday season and into the New Year. 'We com-pleted our 30th year in 2016 and have personally collected over 30 tons for the Pantries. This has evolv-ed into an extended family project, including Jim's adult children and wives, grandkids, and several friends, both young and old.

Jim and Cathy have been married since 1990 and are devoted to their 5 adult children and five grandchildren. Each summer they look forward to spending time with family and friends while camping in Yosemite National Park. In addition to their full time commitment to real estate, they are very involved in their church where Cathy takes on leadership roles in her WINGS group and Jim serves as a member of the church's out-reach programs. In addition to their sales achievements and recognition by being installed in First Team's "Hall of Fame" for ten consecutive years, Jim and Cathy's most cherished accomplishment in this industry has been their involvement in the Realtor's annual Christmas CanTree Project. 2013 marked their 26th year in this very worthwhile program where they have personally collected almost 30 tons of food for the Placentia and Yorba Linda pantries. When they're not working, they enjoy golf at Alta Vista Country Club where they have been members since 1983. Tennis, gardening, traveling and entertaining family and friends also rank high on their leisure time activities. They welcome the opportunity to share their Real Estate knowledge of North Orange County where they have li
