James Bolton-Riley is passionate about people, and their property, and after forging a hugely successful career in the Gisborne rural real estate sector he is delighted to be bringing the highly successful NZR Real Estate brand to Tairāwhiti Gisborne.
With established NZR offices already based throughout New Zealand's heartland rural communities servicing the Taranaki, Waikato, Rangitikei, Ruapehu, Whanganui, Manawatu, Wairarapa, Hawkes Bay, and now expanding into the East Coast /Gisborne region, NZR is strategically placed and extremely well connected with business networks and other rural professionals across New Zealand to reach a highly engaged targeted audience.
Locally owned and operated our team is made up of award-winning agents and support staff including NZR founder Jamie Proude and licenced salesperson Angela Newman who share James passion for people, property and supporting our local communities.
With an enviable track record James results speak for themselves, having sold in excess of $120 million dollars’ worth of property and closed some of the region’s largest recent farm, horticulture, forestry and lifestyle property deals throughout the district. Named a ‘Top 5% performer’ and ‘National Rookie of the year in 2018’ he 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 licenced salesperson Angela Newman, who is instrumental in managing marketing and documentation. James is also backed by NZR’s experienced team throughout the North Island.
You will be hard-pressed to find a better agent, who prides himself on going above and beyond to ensure your best interests underpin everything he does.
