The housing industry lost a giant when Jim Stanton passed away on June 17, 2017. Jim was an accomplished and decorated developer, builder, REALTOR® and thought leader in the housing industry. His broad view of housing, coupled with a strong interest in public policy and industry affairs placed him at the center of the industry’s advocacy efforts for the past four decades.
Jim leaves a legacy throughout the Twin Cities with a diverse portfolio that included developing lots, building homes, and recently bringing condos to Minneapolis.
Jim was also a leader in elevating the housing industry’s advocacy efforts. He understood how important it was to build homes affordably and he devoted countless hours over the past three decades to this cause. Earlier this summer, Jim was with his peers in a Housing First planning meeting and, as always, he was looking forward to opportunities to continue to elevate the housing industry.
He was a man with a great sense of humor and was truly one of a kind. Jim will be greatly missed.
