As one of Bayleys top-performing country agents, James Bolton Riley is passionate about people, and their property.
Recently named in Bayleys Top 5% of salespeople 2019/20, James results speak for themselves, having sold in excess of $100 million dollars’ worth of property including farms, horticulture, forestry and lifestyle properties throughout the district, James is experienced in a diverse range of property types and has a proven ability to manage sales with integrity, at any scale. He understands that your property equals your decision and he will support you throughout the process, not pressure you.
He is an expert problem solver with a strong belief in accurate and timely communication which may be attributed to his 14 year career as a helicopter pilot where he worked on a range of international projects, primarily for government clients.
James is also a staunch advocate for all that the beautiful East Coast region has to offer, and feels very privileged to work closely with the local rural communities within the District. With a young family, James and his wife Pepi are actively involved in their community. When not immersing himself in the sales process, James loves nothing more than spending time with his family enjoying the various recreational opportunities that we are lucky enough to have at our doorstep. In summer you will also find him coaching his two young Nippers at Midway Surf Life Saving Club and in winter coaching his daughters soccer team, a sport where he does have limited experience!
James utilises the latest tools and technology in order to provide a first class service to his clients. He employs some of the region’s best photographers, operates his own drone and has also invested in a Honda Pioneer 1000, a 5 seat off road vehicle, ensuring that properties can be accessed efficiently and safely.
James is also supported by a skilled administration team lead by Angela Newman, who is instrumental in managing marketing and documentation, James is also backed by New Zealand’s number one rural real estate brand.
