Q: What does the Batmobile, Bent Baby Bottles and Branson, Missouri have in common? A: Jim Stephenson!
Thanks for taking time to visit my bio page. I was born and raised in Rockford, Illinois, and moved to Southern California in 1973. While tutoring under my dad in the custom auto fabrication business, I got the chance to work on and build a wide variety of custom cars for movies and TV, including the Batmobile. While working on an “exploding” car for Evel Knievel, I became close friends with an up and coming stunt man. Over the next ten years or so, this friendship led to a variety of new and different behind the scenes jobs in the movie and TV industry. In 1986 I went in an entirely new direction and patented the “bent” baby bottle. My soon to be wife Karyl and I formed a start-up company to manufacture and market this new invention. In 1993 we licensed the patents to Johnson & Johnson, Karyl & I got married and moved to Phoenix, AZ and were blessed with the birth of our daughter that same year. It was there that my Real Estate career began, and in 1997 we decided to make Branson our new home. For us, the quality of life this area offers is second to none. I enjoy Bass fishing and Fly fishing, and my daughter and I enjoy Scuba Diving. Karyl’s passion is photography, and we all enjoy getting away on weekend trips and exploring new places when time permits. In March of 2005, Karyl and I decided that it was time to take our real estate business to the next level and we opened Realty Executives of Branson. Since then we have renamed our office to Branson House Realty - a little easier to say and remember! Our goal has always been to provide our clients with the absolute best possible service without compromising our principles or integrity. We have been fortunate to make many new friends over the years. Once again we appreciate your time in visiting our site and ask that you please feel free to contact us with any questions, or should we be of any service whatsoever. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
