James Brune combines a strong analytical business background with practical reasoning to understand and navigate the critical elements of any transaction. His passion for real estate dates back to the days when he would spend time with his parents on their weekend projects refurbishing single-family rental houses. He bought his first house when he was in his early 20s and in 2012 turned his passion into a rewarding career; with nearly $13 million of transactions completed in 2012 alone, he was named Douglas Elliman's 'Rookie of the Year'. He is also the founder of BoardPackager, a new secure online platform for residential real estate transactions that is transforming an inherently nuanced and inefficient process into a easy, fluid way for brokers, applicants, property management and boards of buildings to process property transfers.

Prior to that, James held positions in natural gas trading and weather risk management for a combined 13 years; most recently as interim CEO/Executive Vice President/Director of the U.S. subsidiary of Tokyo-based Weathernews, Inc. - a weather risk management consultancy. He started the company's New York office, and eventually was responsible for the entire North American subsidiary (accepting buyout when permanent relocation was required).

James has lived in New York City for twelve years in several different neighborhoods; Midtown-East Manhattan, DUMBO and now Clinton Hill. He is an undergraduate of Southern Methodist University plus holds an MBA from the Mays Business School at Texas A&M University with additional coursework completed at Copenhagen Business School.

James is involved in a number of social and civic organizations in New York City and East Hampton, NY, where he also has a home. He is a member of the Down Town Association Club at 60 Pine St. He is also active in children's causes, and is a Trustee of the New York Foundling. James additionally enjoys running, bicycling, skiing, traveling, photography, fantasy football and classic cars.
