Meet the Christina Lowry James Team

Christina Lowry James

Christina Lowry James—Team Lead and Realtor

I meet amazing people every day who have given me the honor to help them with their most personal and valued asset, their home. I do not take that honor lightly. Therefore, I have established systems of communication, service, and marketing to give my clients the best experience. I gathered a network of knowledgeable, like-minded, trusted professionals in every area of real estate to answer each anticipated need, surrounded myself with an experienced full-time team to serve the community alongside me.

My experience in real estate started 25 years ago with flipping investments and rentals. I have lived in many areas of Jefferson and Shelby County as I moved from investment to investment. In 2006, I became a full-time licensed agent serving others. Seventeen years prior to real estate, I had a successful career in the advertising and marketing side of radio broadcasting. 

Across the internet, you will find 5-star reviews for my team due to our mindset of service, earning us 2017 Best of Birmingham finalist among Realtors (200,000 voter poll) and Best of Houzz in service. In the top 5% of Birmingham Area Realtors, I help on average 40 families a year. My accreditations include SRES, ABR, Certified New Home Specialist.

On a personal note, my husband, Kenny, and I were married in 2009. He is a sergeant with Jefferson County Sherriff’s Department. Our two beautiful little girls are the light of our lives. We love our family adventures to the lake, exploring nature on long golf cart rides and walks. I am very close to my parents and love to be with them. We see them every chance we get.

Anne Smaha Banks—Buyer’s Agent

As a buyer’s agent, I help people find their dream homes in the Birmingham area. I work with Christina to ensure all of the team's client's needs are met. I worked in healthcare public relations and marketing for 17 years and 4 years in the health and fitness industry.

I am a mother of 4 and have lived in the Birmingham area my whole life. I thrive on meeting new people and have never met a stranger.

Robert Kenmore

Robert Kenmore—Client Care and Closing Coordinator

I handle all the nitty-gritty of the contract process from ordering title, survey, termite, septic/sewer, warranties, etc. to reviewing a title for issues/errors and working to resolve any problems on the title.  I also review surveys, termites inspection reports, etc. for anything that may cause an issue with the lender. I review closing statements to ensure fees and/or costs are in line with the terms of the contract and, finally, as all goes well, schedule the time and location for closings.

I have worked on $485 million in closed contracts and over 1900 total transaction sides. I have held an active real estate license since 1997 and have worked in client care and closing contracts since 2004.

When I am not working on closings, I like traveling, concerts and musical theatre shows, going to movies, amateur photography, and technology.

Jill Tow

Jill Tow—Marketing and Client Coordinator

I fill in the gaps, whatever is needed. I take care of the big job of marketing the homes Christina sells, adding valuable content to the website on neighborhoods we serve and making sure the little things get done for our clients. I have worked as a freelance graphic designer, freelance researcher, and a teacher.

Outside of the office, I also love to be creative. I enjoy reading, going to movies, going to plays, and love to spend time with my dog.
