James Taylor
My knowledge of the greater Auckland area spreads from the central suburbs when I was part of the team at the Barfoot & Thompson Epsom office, to Pukekohe and the greater Franklin area where I am based now. I've returned to my roots having grown up in Bombay, when the growth and development of Pukekohe and the surrounding area presented some exciting opportunities. 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 completing my branch manager qualifications recently and I strive to exceed my client's 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 Franklin Squash Club and have been a member of the Auckland Polo Club.
