Licensed Salesperson

James Ford brings local knowledge, a passion for property, together with 30 years sales & marketing experience to the team at Wai O Taiki Bay Real

He has enjoyed a successful marketing career across multiple facets in New Zealand. Having transacted several residential property opportunities for his own portfolio, James is well versed in the industry and can help make the buying and investing process smooth for his clients.

Among his many attributes, James puts transparency and integrity at the top of his list, along with his excellent negotiating skills and his ability to analyse and create tailored marketing solutions for all types of properties and circumstances.

Driven with local knowledge, James both lives and works here too. He has been immersed in the area for over 20 years and is enthusiastic about embracing the opportunity that a local boutique agency focused on high care and premium results brings to his clients.

Outside of work, James enjoys time with his family in the outdoors – walking, cycling, fishing, swimming and relaxing at the beach. He especially enjoys the walking and cycling tracks of the Tamaki Coastal Walkway and visiting the Tahuna Torea Nature Reserve – both of which are right on his doorstep at Wai O Taiki Bay. James also enjoys restoring, fixing and driving classic Ford Escort cars with his son.

Experience the difference.

What people are saying

We were delighted with Louise Skinner’s services when we bought a new build townhouse in 2018. We really appreciated her professional and helpful manner, she cheerfully answered our many questions and attended to the smallest details which greatly eased the stress of buying a property. Louise is a true Real Estate professional and we would have no hesitation in using her services again in the future.
M & O Diggelmann
James has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to his marketing background and property experience. Having worked alongside him the last couple of years, there are two things that make him stand out from his peers - his meticulous attention to detail and resilience under pressure. When others are flustered, James is always level headed and 100% committed to getting the best for his clients and often goes above and beyond.
Louise recently assisted us with the purchase of our new home in Wai-O-Taiki Bay. I found her to be very knowledgeable of the area, she took an avid interest in what was on our wish list and found just the right property to meet our needs. Highly recommended.

James has a keen eye for detail and making sure everything is correct, and he is committed and dedicated to ensuring a smooth process all the way from start to finish.
Louise was a pleasure to deal with. Authentic, straight up and easy going. She supported us during the process of searching and buying our new home. She was accomodating, quick to answer all our questions, and provided helpful info and advice. We couldn’t be happier with our new family home.
N & S Watson
Louise was very diligent and organised and she promptly provided any information requested, often exceeding my expectations. Louise had extensive knowledge of the real estate market in the wider area and I had confidence and trust in all dealings with her. I was very impressed with Louise and her expertise and approach thoughout the entire purchase process and she definitely contributed to this being less stressful than it might have been. I would highly recommend Louise.
