Get to know James Brockway
James Brockway has been a licensed real estate agent since 1992 and a licensed broker since 1994. Born and raised in Texas, James began his professional career in Houston immediately after graduating cum laude with a degree in finance and accounting from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. After completing a three year stint in public accounting during which time he audited banks and commercial real estate firms while he earned his Certificate of Public Accountancy (CPA) license, he moved on to work for a commercial real estate development and property management firm, a multi-family investment and property management firm and a shopping center developer and property manager. During this time, James served in financial roles with these organizations rising to the rank of Chief Financial Officer, while earning and using his broker’s license to buy and sell commercial property for these firms.
In 2002, James represented his first residential buyer, closing on a home in Houston. Having caught the residential bug, shortly thereafter he formed Brockway Realty, LLC in 2004 and has been transacting business under this company ever since, specializing in the Houston Area, primarily in Clear Lake and League City.
By earning the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation, James has earned what fewer than 3% of the nation’s roughly one million REALTORS have earned. This designation displays a high level of professional experience, ethics and extensive education in all areas of real estate and technical abilities.
An Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) holds exemplary skills in education and experience and is dedicated to providing the highest representation of buyers in the industry. This certification adds another quality layer to James’s skill set.
As an e-Pro, James has proven to clients that he understands and utilizes the most advanced real estate technology to provide exceptional service.
Through the tough times of our most recent recession, as many homes have fallen into foreclosure or been subject to “short sales”, it has been essential to work with a REALTOR that understands the process of acquiring and selling distressed properties. With his Short Sale and Foreclosure (SFR) designation, James has a proven background in understanding this complicated process.
James has achieved and displays a unique, well-rounded background not only in residential and commercial real estate brokerage, but also in the financial aspects of these transactions.
James and his wife Penny Kennedy Brockway, also a Realtor and long time League City resident, reside in League City.

Testimonials for James Brockway
Stephen and Ronnie Kennedy01/08/2015
We recently purchased a home with help from Brockway Realty. The whole experience from looking at homes to closing was smooth and easy; the reason being that Penny and James are intentional in making it that way. Penny has a gift for listening to what you want in a house and then leading you to "the one". She also maintained calm throughout rants and frustrations that occurred occasionally. ;) We would highly recommend this wonderful team.
"James and Penny Brockway are the best they put so much of their selves into selling your house and making sure you get the best price. You can tell they love what they do and you will not find more honest people than they are. I tell all my friends and family if they are selling their house they are crazy if they don't use them.”
He was helpful and knowledgeable. It was good to feel that you have an expert that makes you feel at ease. He was available on most occasions and called back promptly. There was never an opportunity that I felt left out of the process.
It was a great experience; every minor detail was executed with precision. The Brockway Realty team did a great job making sure we got our house at a great price and provided valuable follow up information to help with our new home ownership transition.
I highly recommend James and Penny Brockway with Brockway Realty. Buying a home for our family in Texas while relocating from North Carolina, seemed daunting. Without the benefit of time or local knowledge, we were concerned about our ability to make the right choices. Our main source of anxiety was that we didn't know anyone locally or the area in general. My wife and I were impressed by the time James and Penny spent showing us the different neighborhoods within multiple cities and explaining the pros and cons of each area. Once we found a home they gave us purchasing strategies that definitely benefited us.
Their knowledge, resourcefulness and professionalism is outstanding. Again, I highly recommend them and assure you that you will not be disappointed if you select Brockway Realty!

Brockway Realty was extremely helpful. We looked at both existing and to be built homes. Even though we decided to build a home, they still worked with us through the process helping us to find sub contractors, answer questions about school districts , and helping us with feedback to the builder. They were very knowledgable and timely with their help and support.
Brockway Realty is a dynamic company! I bought my house last summer and I love the house I am in with my son. In 2011, I became a widow and went through a very difficult time. During this difficult time, James and Pablo educated me in the housing market. They listened to what I wanted for my son and me in a house. After two years with their guidance, I found the perfect house for my son and me! James and Pablo were extremely knowledgeable and great listeners during this stressful time for me. Anytime I had a question they were there for me! I learned so much from them and am very grateful for all they did for my son and me. If you are ready to sell or buy your house...Brockway Realty is "The Cream of the Crop!"
James Brockway provided above and beyond assistance in the purchase of my home. The process was challenging but James made it easy. I know I will be returning to James when I buy my next home.
Dependability, professionalism and timeliness are some of the most important qualities a person can have in any business, especially in today's real estate environment. James displays all three of these. He is a great man, with great ideas that will carry and advise his clients and colleagues to go far and make sound, smart decisions on their brokerage needs. James and I have worked on a number of single tenant retail transactions in the Texas market and his knowledge and ability to look at both sides of the deal has been a remarkable quality in getting tough deals across the finish line. I would recommend and work with James in any facet of the real estate business as he is knowledgeable in all of them!

We have used James in both selling an existing home and purchasing a new home. He was a tremendous help to us in both transactions. James was very accessible and always made us feel like we were his top priority. We were very impressed with his insight and knowledge of the real estate market. He will definitely be the only agent/broker we will ever use.
