It was important that our agent was friendly, approachable & had our best interests in mind for a prompt sale. Steven James had all of the mentioned & we would highly recommend him to anyone selling their property. His local knowledge, experience in real estate & ability to sell our home in a tough market was commendable, he handled our sale professionally & sold our home in record time. We are very grateful to Steve & his team for achieving the Sale so we could move on with our next venture.

Kerry Heathwood Gladstone

I had a proposal from an alternate agent who sold a similar property 12 months prior. They were competent but during the review process Steven James displayed a higher understanding of the current market and was more proactive. In a difficult selling market there were few genuine buyers in our price bracket. Steven understood this and worked tirelessly (for both the buyer and seller) to ensure reasonable offers were obtained so that negotiations could be undertaken. Steve James knows Gladstone, knows the market, and provides an honest and proactive approach to the sales process. Would gladly engage him for future sales.

Doug Forbes

Having dealt with Steve James previously whilst looking to buy, his 'never let go' demeanor was what we needed for our sale. We would have accepted less than Steve James got as we were desperate to sell. His negotiation skill got enough more than we thought to almost cover Hooker's fees. Glenda James was also great. A pleasure to work with.
