What My Clients Say

  • James sold our flat in Ngaio. It was midwinter but 60 groups came to view it and James did all the viewings himself. His advertising of the property in Trade me, Property Press and the Dominion Post was attractive and clearly set out for prospective purchasers. James has over 14 years’ experience in real estate. He reassured us that it was the right time to sell and told us what the likely number of views for the open homes, price range and number of offers would be which turned out to be correct. We were thrilled with the price and the whole sale process from start to finish went like clockwork. James has the gift of getting on with people for example he had to liaise with the tenants in the flat who were concerned about having people disturbing their routine but James sorted this out and the tenants were happy with no complaints. We would have no hesitation in recommending James to anyone wanting to sell their property. He is a hard worker, very easy to get on with; always kept us informed and with his vast experience knew how to patiently answer all the property questions we or prospective purchasers may have had.

  • I have had extraordinarily good service from James during my four and a half month quest to buy my gorgeous character house in Wellington. He very quickly grasped exactly what I was looking for. On a weekly basis he showed me an impressive array of promising houses with much enthusiasm, however, without a hard sell attitude! Looking at houses with James was stimulating and enjoyable. I found James trustworthy, straightforward and honest. He is a people person who possesses well developed people skills. I experienced him not only as intelligent and charming during our many discussions but also very genuine in his desire to find the right house for me. James approaches his work ethically and with integrity. He pursued a fair price for both the vendor and myself during the negotiation process and I felt able to trust both the information and advice he gave me. I recommend James wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a positive, energetic and trustworthy agent who will work very hard on your behalf.

  • James exudes confidence in both himself and his ability to achieve a great price for house sales. This in turn gave us the confidence that we had chosen the right agent for such an important decision. We found James to be both professional and competent. His sales strategy and marketing campaign were unique, resulting in a sales price we were very happy with.

  • James was first recommended to us by a friend. At that time we had already met with another real-estate agent and, although ready to sign them on, we decided to get a last-minute “ second opinion “. I am glad we did. Right from the start James impressed us with his professional approach. His presentation was thorough and gave us a good feel for him. But James didn’t only tell us about himself and his organisation – he also provided us with information that educated us on the sales process itself, enabling us to make a much more informed decision. His enthusiasm for the job matched his enthusiasm for our house and James quickly convinced us that he was the best person to look after our interests. In fact, on the same day that we signed James he was already proving true to his word, with buyers being shown through the property on the same day. James was constantly keeping us informed of his progress, letting us know what had happened each day. We never needed to worry about what was happening. James worked hard for us. We found him to be dedicated, sincere and honest. We found James was driven to achieve results but this was balanced with his commitment to maintain the interests of the seller. I would not hesitate to recommend James to any other seller.

  • James sold two of my properties in two weeks – and both for a great price. I can’t recommend him enough. Personable and professional, he helped me at every stage of the process – dealing with council, helping to source a property lawyer, and working through the complex paperwork involved with atypical titles. If you’re looking for a competent and hassle-free agent, talk to James. He’ll change your view of real estate agents forever and get you a great deal.

  • I felt completely confident in James from our first phone conversation, when he openly answered all of my questions about the process of selling my apartment. His integrity and obvious knowledge and experience became the basis of a strong working relationship, which ensured that the preparation, marketing and selling of my property was an enjoyable and satisfying experience for both of us. James has a great personality for the job. As well as being positive, confident and enthusiastic, he is also realistic and practical. He took a great interest in the presentation of the property and it felt as though we were working as a team that included the tradespeople and staging company we engaged. I was most impressed with James’ consultation and communication skills. He kept me informed throughout the entire process and, although he obviously had other sales to attend to, it felt as though I was his only client. He was quick to respond to emails and gave me his undivided attention during phone calls. His organisational skills and ability to follow through were reassuring and took any stress out of the process for me. James’ professional competence and experience were obvious when it came to working with potential purchasers and their tenders. This resulted in an excellent sale and I am sure the purchaser was equally happy with the service James provided.

  • After having had our property in Miramar on the market with a large Wellington real estate company for three quiet months, we were approached by James Copeland to market our property. With his enthusiasm and professional approach, it was an easy decision to allow James to market our home. Within one week of listing with James, a buyer had been found for our property. The negotiation process was carried out very smoothly with James assistance, despite the fact we were no longer based in Wellington at the time of the sale. We were very impressed with the advertising James developed for our property, and with the interest it subsequently generated. In our view, the text and photo’s used by James were far superior to previous adversting that had been carried out by our initial real estate agency. I would not hesitate to recommend James as a real estate agent to any person interested in selling their property. James has a refreshing and sharp marketing strategy which definitely proved beneficial to us.

  • I would like to recommend James as a very knowledgeable and professional real estate agent. We approached James for an appraisal on our property, and his assessment of the value was spot on. He sold our house for a price that we were very happy with. Throughout the whole process James was very approachable and was excellent at communicating and we always felt that we knew where things were at. I would have no hesitation in recommending James, he is experienced and has a great sales strategy that will sell your house for a great price!

  • James handled the sale of my property in text-book fashion! The process was extremely efficient and, from my point of view, completely painless. James’ advice on how to ensure the property was attractive to the expected market was spot-on – with much less expenditure than I had anticipated. Responses to my queries were always rapid and helpful. I had thought that James’ estimated market value range was on the high side – but in the end his judgement proved completely accurate. The marketing campaign conducted over two weeks elicited 7 tenders, creating real competition. This ensured a fantastic result which I was very happy with. I am sincerely grateful to James for his work, would certainly ask him to help me out again in future, and volunteered these words of appreciation of my own accord!

  • James Copeland sold our house for us. He quite clearly knew his stuff, he put in a lot of work, and he always kept us informed of everything. After an open home he would call us without fail and tell us how many groups there were. After a couple of days he would tell us without fail all the responses from following up the visitors. As far as I could tell. James was thorough in everything he did, and not afraid of hard work. I thought his strategy for selling the house was very well thought out. Every time I asked why he did something a certain way, his explanation indicated that a lot of thought had gone into it. The advertising was professional and effective-there was a consistently high number of buyers viewing the property. In summary our experience was that James knows what he is doing, he is personable, approachable and helpful, he is diligent and through, he knows what works and what doesn’t and he is unfazed by adversity. I would use his services again without hesitation.
