With a background in hospitality including several years in hotel management and function planning at Doyles Bridge Hotel Mordialloc, James French knows what it takes to turn a milestone moment into a lifetime success. Calm, cool-headed and always in control, James' focused approach ensures his clients get the most out of their big day as he manages every detail, makes all the links and adds value to every interaction.... from the first open-for-inspection, to the fall of the auction hammer.
Born into a real estate family, James has property in his blood. Since his earliest years, auctions were entertainment, values were discussed at dinner, and tales of record sales were told before bed. It's a grounding that has helped make James a particularly savvy agent; with a long-term understanding of both the wider cycles of the property environment and the individual particularities of the market in Chelsea and beyond.
With a formidable work-ethic honed by years of customer service, this hard-working agent takes a 7-day-aweek, 24-hour-a-day work-week in his stride. In fact, he's quick to comment that after years in the hotel industry, the on-call hours of the real estate industry seem relaxed. It's a attitude that ensures that James is one of the area's most approachable agents - .always ready to follow-up buyers, respond to queries, and stop for a chat that might just turn into a negotiation.
A familiar face in the local area and an active Member of Mentone Grammar's old Boys Association, James is always on the lookout for ways to build his buyer network and enhance the sales opportunities for his vendors' properties. Whether it's taking a hard line in a post-auction negotiation or gently pointing out the benefits of the local area, this hospitable agent has it covered.
