James brings exceptional service and energy to the Malibu Life Team and serves as Madison Hildebrand’s executive assistant. Having spent his entire life in Southern California he is no stranger to Malibu. As a graduate from California State University Northridge, with a Bachelor of Science in Hospitality, Barber enjoys and strives to provide the best service, discretion, and attention to detail when it comes to working with the variety of luxury services and client’s needs.

He now aims to take the skills he has developed both in college and throughout his experiences to provide clients with a level of care that is second to none. He has quickly adopted a commitment to excellence, professionalism, and integrity and aims to apply those skills to those looking to achieve the dream of homeownership. 

Barber also enjoys giving back to the community. He has volunteered his time at therapeutic horseback riding helping children with disabilities experience the joy of equestrian. He also aims to take an active role in the Malibu Boys and Girls Club alongside Mr. Hildebrand who is a board member of the club. 

When he doesn’t have his nose buried in a book on real estate, he enjoys riding dirt bikes with his father, or hitting the beach with his mother. He also enjoys boxing and has been training martial arts for over 10 years.
