Flying Helicopters and Rural Real Estate has more in common than you might think, as James Bolton Riley discovered after trading in a highly successful Aviation Career for an equally successful Real Estate one.
James says his international flying career has definitely given him an added edge working closely with and supporting rural communities. A master at multi-tasking, making decisions under pressure, and communicating clearly, his clients can be assured they are in safe hands.
“I’ve always had a passion for Rural Communities, and while working at Bayleys one of the biggest highlights has been in graining myself into this community. One of the most satisfying parts to Real Estate is seeing both parties happy and making the seemingly unattainable possible for people”
Partnering up with Top 5% Rural Specialist Simon Bousfield, the pair have formed a formidable team, drawing on their combined skills and experience to sell numerous landmark properties in the District. “We find two heads are usually better than one, so our clients get the advantage of our pooled resources and expertise.”
This unique team approach is proving a winning formula with this dynamic duo closing more than $78 million worth of deals during the 2017/2018 year alone across Farms, Horticulture, Bare Land, Forestry and Lifestyle Blocks.
“James has a great sense of humour, and great work ethic. He doesn’t expect things to be given to him. He and Simon complement each other brilliantly. They are both very good, professional agents, who read each other well and cover each other with confidence says Bayleys Principal James Macpherson.
