In Memoriam: Jim McNairy, MAI, SRA

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of James (Jim) D. McNairy III, MAI, SRA of Greensboro, NC. Jim was a long standing and active member of the Appraisal institute, holding various leadership positions at the chapter and national levels. He was awarded the AI Volunteer of Distinction award for Region V in 2013. Jim served on the NC Chapter’s Executive Committee from 1996-2000 and was NC Chapter President in 2000. In addition, he served on a variety of national and chapter committees including AI’s Experience Screening Panel and the Piedmont Chapter’s Board of Directors in the early 1990’s. Jim and his wife, Jeanne McNairy, MAI, SRA, founded McNairy & Associates in 1978 to provide professional commercial and residential appraisal and consulting services in North Carolina.  

Arrangements are being handled by the Forbis and Dick Funeral Home. Our deepest sympathies go out to Jim’s family.
