No one has a better or deeper understanding of a community than someone who grew up there. Born and raised in Palm Beach, James Wentley — known to his family and friends as “J” — puts his in-depth knowledge of the Palm Beach market to work for clients looking to buy or sell luxury property in the area’s iconic upscale neighborhoods. Beyond the real estate market, J provides first hand knowledge and experience of local schools. With these connections, he helps families make the right decision scholastically for their children.
J attended the Palm Beach Day Academy, graduated from Boca Raton’s Saint Andrew’s High School, and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Communication at The College of Charleston, in South Carolina, starring in lacrosse at each school. Growing up, he frequently helped out in the family business, a popular quartet of shops — Aristokids, Aristokids Outpost, P.B. Boys Club, and P.B. Girls Club — featuring everything from beach accessories to high end apparel.
Upon joining Douglas Elliman, J was grateful to receive tutelage from top producer Gary Pohrer. By working alongside Gary, J gained invaluable experience and knowledge that has been able to apply to his own career. J currently resides on the island and enjoys spending his personal time surfing and seeing live music.
