About James Billings, TrustArte Founder

James is an Economics graduate of Pepperdine University of Malibu California, an FAA Commercial Pilot and California Real Estate Broker. He became keenly interested in trusts twenty years ago and developed practical expertise from hundreds of real estate transactions. He’s participated in various property lawsuits including one petitioned to the CA Supreme Court. Though his work, James saw the powerful and unique value of trusts beyond real estate transactions and land holdings.  He realized that the very privacy trusts afforded was exactly the element that made them misunderstood and under-utilized by attorneys.

He spent years studying trusts and gaining expertise. Over time, it became clearly evident to James that no other form of asset ownership delivers the level of security and privacy that trusts do. Clients desired financial privacy but didn’t know how! In 2009, he formed TrustArte to help others understand and enjoy the unique benefits of private trusts for owning personal property, a business and especially real estate.
