One of New Zealand’s most successful real estate agents, Jim Mays has worked in real estate for more than 44 years and transacted well over $1 billion in real estate sales. He has written contracts others could only dream of negotiating.
He first made his mark in the Bay of Islands where he accrued a portfolio of major tourism-related properties. Then John Bayley at Bayleys Real Estate lured him to establish a waterfront and special projects division and he was the first to become a waterfront specialist, brokering deals for exclusive waterfront properties, retreats, lodges, islands and resorts throughout New Zealand and the South Pacific. Also during this time Jim was appointed the marketing agent for the old Auckland Hospital Board prior to the board going over to the present new district health boards. It was at that time Jim marketed and sold all 28 hospitals and property belonging to that organisation.
Jim eventually stepped aside from this high pressure world, but he still specialises in mainly waterfront properties in Auckland’s top end North Shore and Matakana areas. Now he continues to quietly sell more top-end property than most top agents. He recently concluded two sales of $29 million and $28.9 million.
Jim offers exceptional performance and unparalleled service to achieve the best possible price. In today’s competitive market, he says, it’s more important than ever to select an experienced agent who has a track record of dealing in valuable property. Jim is a trusted negotiator you can rely on when selling superior residential properties.
