Coral Springs resident Jim Donnelly moved to South Florida with his family in 1972 from Philadelphia. He grew up playing & loving baseball and football.
At age 17, while still in high school, he landed a job at the NBC affiliate WPTV Channel 5 as the sports editor/videographer. It was every sports fan’s dream job.
In the 38 years since he’s been around the world with a TV camera on his shoulder, he earned Associated Press and Emmy Awards for his work from his peers. Donnelly then traded the TV camera for a still camera and began working as a photographer for the Florida Marlins, Miami Heat, Miami Dolphins, and Homestead Miami Speedway. Running around those fields and tracks for years took a toll on the body, and he couldn’t take it anymore.
He soon discovered a new passion: Real Estate Photography.
Donnelly has photographed over 1000 homes and over 250 commercial properties. Each property presents its unique challenges. He loves the thrill of helping a family find their new home, and that’s why he got his Real Estate license. He takes great pride in helping a family take that next step on the journey of their lives.
In a real estate transaction, there are so many questions that need answers. It’s a scary time. Nothing scares him anymore after the things he’s seen in his news career, especially real estate questions.
