James Walsh

Residential Sales Consultant Hamilton East

James understands that selling property is one of the most important decisions in your life and he does not take lightly the responsibility of acting on your behalf.

As native Hamiltonians it’s fair to say James Walsh and Zoe Wilson know, and love, the city they’ve grown up in, and are proud to have witnessed its growth and development during the past decade.

They also have a passion for Hamilton’s residential housing market, which is highlighted by their job philosophy; they believe they’re not merely selling city real estate, rather – they’re selling a range of Hamilton lifestyles.

And there’s plenty on offer: From traditional suburban living through to sophisticated multi-unit apartments, Hamilton’s diverse communities present something for all ages, cultures, and circumstance. It’s a city rich in opportunity and excitement.

Recently James sold 21 apartments ahead of completion of ParkHaven Luxury Apartments. They’re also marketing Hills Village (Stark Property, stage two now for sale) in Hamilton East, together with nine high-end apartments at nearby One Cook St.

Having studied at Lincoln University, James has background in business management and commerce. After a stint working on a farm in the United Kingdom, and time spent in property management, he began selling real estate in 2015. He enjoys the engagement with local people that is part-and-parcel of helping to sell and buy real estate, and is proud to have forged close friendships with many of his past clients.

Zoe’s been in real estate marketing for six years, most recently as Marketing Manager for Lodge Real Estate. She has a deep understanding of how the market works, knows the right resources that make for a smooth sale, and has the ability to tap in to a wide network of industry colleagues. Zoe is an expert in digital marketing, giving her clients an edge through quickly reaching a wide pool of the right buyers.

If you want professional, dedicated, representation and guidance through your house sale, James and Zoe are the pair for you. From initial consultation and appraisal through to settlement, James and Zoe will listen closely, and work with you, toward the best result. They’ll help identify the most effective sales strategy specific to your property, and execute the plan with precision.

Communication is among their top priorities, and when the time calls for assertive negotiation, the couple are experienced, calm, and clear in their thoughts and goals.

James and Zoe live in Hamilton East with their sausage dog Mozart (say hi if you see them in the village!). James’s second passion is rugby, and he’s club captain of Hamilton Marist; Zoe admits she’d rather spend her days off painting, or with her nose in a book.

James and Zoe would love the opportunity to assist you buying or selling your home.

We were so fortunate to have James as our realtor.

We were so fortunate to have James as our realtor. We were first home buyers with very little knowledge and he always answered every phone call. James' professionalism, honesty, knowledge, and patience were much respected and appreciated. we never felt like he was trying to sell us a house but he felt like more of a mentor to answer all our questions. From start to finish he was kind, responsive and a constant professional. we will also consider James when we have any future real estate needs. it was a great experience.

James has been great to work with and I hope Lodge realise what a great Ambassador he is for their company.

James has been great to work with and I hope Lodge realise what a great Ambassador he is for their company. I really appreciated the way he kept me in the picture right through the (at times frustrating) marketing process and kept the Open Homes rolling for such a long period. Although I was away several weekends I knew security would never be an issue after Open Homes and I was always confident with him in charge.

With different offers going back and forwards I felt at all times that he had my interests at heart and never felt under pressure at any stage.I have sometimes heard negative feedback about the experiences of friends who have sold their homes and think that when you have a positive experience as mine has been with an awesome agent it should be recorded.

Go well James, you are the best and I hope you sell heaps in 2018.

James Walsh recently sold our house and we have found the process with James to be stress free and extremely positive.

James Walsh recently sold our house and we have found the process with James to be stress free and extremely positive. James was constantly there to provide excellent support and guidance throughout the entire process and was always available whenever we needed help or had a question. He was always professional and displayed excellent communication and it was obvious he was there to get us the best price. It was a pleasure working with James. We highly recommend him

James has been great to deal with through every step of selling and buying.

James has been great to deal with through every step of selling and buying. From the first meeting we realised he was genuine and easy to relate to. He worked hard to achieve a good result in a short period of time with minimal hassle to us. He understood the market and knew which options were going to give us the best outcome at each step in both the selling and buying process. Without a doubt we'd look to use James next time we are in the market and would happily recommend him to others

Ben and Sarah

We found James honest and reliable, one of the best parts of the process was the constant contact James had with us, keeping us informed of what was happening and what potential buyer comments were.

We found James honest and reliable, one of the best parts of the process was the constant contact James had with us, keeping us informed of what was happening and what potential buyer comments were. This gave us confidence when going into the auction process, setting our price expectations,  and an outcome we were very pleased with. James was a pleasure to deal with and we both highly recommend him

Scott & Charlotte

We recently listed and sold an investment property through James.

We recently listed and sold an investment property through James.  From our first contact many months prior James kept in regular contact so there was no question when we came to list that we would sell through him.
The property sold very very quickly due to the frantic nature of the market, but irrespective of that James gave us an excellent strategy to guarantee we got the best possible price in the shortest possible time. 
He worked courteously with our tenants to minimise disruptions to them too.
And most importantly he communicated so often that I was never left wondering what was happening.
I am a real estate agent myself and have trained salespeople for the last 30 years – if all of my trainees did a job like James did I would be exceptionally proud of them.
Without hesitation we would use James again in the future should the need arise – and he will be my point of contact in the future if I have buyers or sellers needing an excellent agent. Thank you James.

Thank you James for all your hard work with helping us find a home especially two very nervous and uncertain first time buyers.

Thank you James for all your hard work with helping us find a home especially two very nervous and uncertain first time buyers.

I was very fortunate to have found James and have him help me through the process of buying my first home.

I was very fortunate to have found James and have him help me through the process of buying my first home.
From the outset he listened to what I wanted in a house and then did his best to find properties to match. 
James was helpful, honest and reliable throughout the entire process, and made buying my first home an easy stress free event. 
I found James to be professional and patient with regular updates when offers were submitted.
Throughout the whole process I felt like James wanted me to find my perfect house. 
I would not hesitate to recommend James to anyone looking to buy or sell
