Jamie White was born and raised in London, England. He went to public school and graduated from college with a degree in Accounting & Finance. He spent the next decade working as a financial analyst at a number of London investment banks, giving him expertise in finance and investments. While on vacation in 2006, he met a girl from Virginia at a bar in Paris, they fell in love and six months later he persuaded her to move to London where she studied for a Masters degree at the London School of Economics.
They continued their relationship and in 2008 they married in Remington, Virginia. At the time they were still living in London and Jamie was working for Deutsche Bank, but when the financial crash hit he was downsized in 2009 and left looking for work.
His wife wanted to return to the U.S. and got a job offer at SNL Financial (now S&P Global) in Charlottesville. So he applied for a green card, and they crossed the Atlantic in 2010.
Ready for a fresh start, Jamie got his real estate license in 2012 and joined Montague Miller & Co. Realtors. It was a slow start to selling real estate. He quickly discovered that the housing market was depressed and that being new to Charlottesville meant he didn’t know anyone who wanted to buy or sell.
So he began looking at innovative ways to market himself and his listings. He soon found that his English accent was a huge asset and initially built his business through holding lots of open houses and joining a number of civic groups. He joined the Chamber of Commerce and the Blue Ridge Mountains Rotary Club and completed the Leadership Charlottesville program.
His likability meant that the referrals quickly started coming. He gained a reputation for listening to his clients’ needs and really caring about finding them the right home. The hard work paid off and in his first year as a Realtor he was named Rookie of the Year by the Charlottesville Association of Realtors. As the housing market heated up and listings started selling faster, Jamie built a small team to help him provide better service to his clients. He hired three buyer’s agents (Brad, Taylor, and Anders), a marketing coordinator (Anna), and three administrative assistants (Nick, Gay, and Lisa) to help ensure that his clients have a fantastic experience. In 2016 Jamie was voted Charlottesville’s Best Real Estate Agent by C-Ville Weekly.
