Licensee Salesperson & Auctioneer, Ray White Rotorua
James Alexander was born out of the south east end of London and raised in Dulwich. He lived in London for ten years before relocating to Somerset; a sunny country environment steeped in history famous for its thatched cottages, quaint narrow lanes, cheddar cheese and rough cider.
He travelled to New Zealand 22 years ago on a 3 month cycling holiday and he never went back. The culture, hospitality and freedom he discovered, blew him away. Experiencing and witnessing the positive, Kiwi can-do attitude was an inspiration. His future was NZ!
"It's a city that feels like a town, it has community with a world class environment to boot".
In his spare time you'll often see James running the streets, training at the gym, surfing on the coast or in the Redwoods exercising his burning passion for Mountain Biking,

James was the third real estate agent I met . I was very nervous about the process of selling my house and wanted someone who understood my house and its potential. On first meeting James was awesome , he was very supportive of my needs and kept the process really transparent and positive. He provided me with great options in selling and did not push me into making any decisions. He was very organised providing me with up-to-date information that was really helpful in deciding on my selling approach. The open homes were well run and he took every opportunity to ensure people viewed the house. A really nice person who I felt wanted the best for me and I felt really supported in the process.

If you require an honest, forthright agent with a terrific personality to sell your house, choose James Alexander. The time he spent advising us was beyond our expectations. My house was sold within 10 days. He even found me another house within a week. Thank you very much. James.

"One recognises a professional by their performance. In this James is easy to recognise. With the strict conditions we negotiated on the sale of our property he planned and executed the sales process in a fast and well communicated way. Every step was done with attention to detail from seeing the value of the property, showcasing this, pitching it to the right people and right through to getting the offers on the table. Not just the joy of a good sale but also of watching a job professionally executed."
Raymond - 11d Herewini Street
“I Have really enjoyed getting to know James and have found his professionalism, attention to detail and great communication skills to be a real breath of fresh air. He made the sale of my property an easy, fuss-free, process and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to family and friends. In fact I already have!”

After a number of open homes and failed vendor/real estate agent negotiations, we've finally met James! We found him very sincere and 'person centered'. As first home buyers, my partner and I felt we were rushed to meet deadlines or raise a higher price against other offers (by other agents). Some were more of a 'dealer' - fortunately, James was very approachable and transparent. Talking to him feels like we are actually buying our first home (which is really exciting) rather than doing a business transaction which is impersonal and rudimentary.

James sold my tenanted property in Rotorua by negotiation and without a marketing campaign by working through his list of potential buyers and undertaking a few cold calls to people he believed would be interested in the property. Over a long period of negotiation and with hard work and persistence from James, the buyer and I agreed on the deal. James is a credit to the real estate profession and has my recommendation.

I recently purchased a house that James was selling. On first meeting he was very approachable. As a first home buyer I didn’t know anything about buying a house (even how to make an offer). James helped guide me though this whole process. His friendliness, helpfulness and availability made the buying process easier. I will recommend James to all buyers and purchasers.
I would like to commend James Alexander for his professionalism, and exceptional marketing in the quick sale of my Mum’s estate. He communicated well over the whole process, taking whatever time was required in answering our questions, and keeping us well informed of the progress and interest that was generated. James gave excellent advice in how best to market the property to give the best advertising coverage and presentation. The results were really pleasing to us. I would thoroughly recommend James to anyone as an agent that will act in your best interests in achieving a satisfactory result in the sale of your property.
From the moment we met James we felt we could trust his genuine, friendly nature. He was open and honest about our property and showed imagination and integrity with his marketing plan. During the negotiation stage he was efficient and business-like culminating in a successful sale. We were very happy with the outcome, turning what can sometimes be an anxious situation into a rewarding experience. You can trust James to do this for you too.
