Bonjour Jim ! No, this sentence is correct here. Indeed, to express what we call the Close Past or "Passé Proche" in French, you use "venir de + infinitive" in Le Présent. Have a look at our related lesson: Venir de + infinitive = To have just done (Le Passé Proche) I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
