James went above and beyond throughout the whole sale process. His vast knowledge and expertise was evident and I loved how analytical he was, giving me a lot of comfort around deciding to go to auction. I live in New Zealand now, so it was great to have someone communicate with me on a regular and effective basis, ensuring that I was part of the whole journey concluding with the live stream at the auction. The whole process seemed so seamless, although I'm sure there was a lot of work going on behind the scenes to ensure this was the case. James pushed for the best possible result for me and most definitely earned his commission! I would highly recommend James' services (and in fact have already), he is a brilliant agent.
