James Brune, CEO of Board Packager had a great love of real estate from an early age when he would visit the rental properties his parents owned on weekends to fix odd things in their investments. He purchased his first home at the age of 21, but he had a successful career in oil & gas before he decided to make real estate his passion. He was a successful real estate agent in the highly competitive market of New York City and found a great business opportunity with the tedious work involved with creating a board package for co-ops and condos in New York City which was mostly a manual, laborious task where each package was several hundred pages and multiple copies were necessary. This archaic method had not been challenged in years and the automated process with Board Packager was born. Jim is a brilliant entrepreneur and it was a privilege to speak with him.
