My knowledge of the greater Auckland area spreads from the central suburbs when I was part of the team at the Barfoot & Thompson Epsom branch, to Pukekohe, the greater Franklin area and now the North Shore. Joining the team at Barfoot & Thompson Takapuna gives me a broad view from north to south.
The North Shore has exciting opportunities and appealing features enhanced by the beautiful coastline and the multi-cultural environment that has grown in recent years.
I enjoy marketing a wide range of properties from one-bedroom units to large developments, and to-date have achieved some top sale prices.
Completing a Bachelor of Commerce at the University of Canterbury and a Post Graduate Diploma of Finance through the Financial Services Institute of Australasia, led to my professional career prior to real estate in insurance broking and sales. Understanding clients' needs and seeing the bigger picture before recommending an appropriate marketing plan, were valuable skills learned from this industry, together with negotiating techniques that have seen me achieve some exceptional results.
My experience in real estate has been enhanced by obtaining my branch manager qualifications, and I strive to exceed my clients' expectations with every transaction.
Outside of my career I have always been interested in a wide variety of sports. I am currently a member of the Milford Tennis Club and the North Shore Squash Club.

"From the very first day the house was on the market, salespeople from Barfoot & Thompson brought numerous clients through my house. To me this was a real bonus. Not only did I have extremely well patronised open homes at the weekends with many people arriving early and queuing to enter. Originally I thought it would be a very stressful time, especially having open homes, but I changed my mind because James's plan was so successful. I admired has passion, enthusiasm and dedication to his work and I was grateful for his understanding of my situation. I could not have wished for a better result. Not only was the auction rewarding, but overall the house was only on the market for little over a fortnight. I have no hesitation in recommending James Taylor as
a residential salesperson and wish him well with his real estate future."
"James, at all times had a professional approach to all our dealings, but understood the personal aspects of offering properties for sale. I never felt that he had no time for me, if he couldn't answer a query immediately he replied at the earliest opportunity. I would not hesitate to recommend James to list properties in his 'home patch', but also in the wider Auckland area."M. Goodman
"In my recent dealings with James, I have no hesitation in recommending him as a very professional, positive and efficient agent but with no pressure. With his competence and expertise there was a very successful outcome."J. Riley
"When I met James Taylor he impressed me with his positive manner, his professionalism, and his easy style of communication.
He worked hard with his Open Homes. He advertised my house well and had many people through the house. On every Open Home day people were still at the house well after the allotted time.
He finalised a good sale for me in a short time. He was proficient, reliable, accompished, and honest. I have recommended him to my friends, and would do so to anybody requiring a quality realtor."
"James was attentive and ontheball in the lead up to the sale of my property. He gave sound advice and acted with Integrity."V. Monrad
