Hi James, As discussed I purchased a property on the weekend through another agent. Although I didn’t purchase the property through you I would have no hesitation recommending you to anyone I know selling a property including myself. You were willing to go out of your way to provide a quality service which included showing me through properties outside of inspection times due to my shift work as a fire fighter. In the months I have been looking for a property I dealt with many agents and you were the best of them. You were always willing to help and provide any information that could assist me including properties that you had not listed. I am happy if any of your superiors want to contact me to hear firsthand how impressed I was with your service. Thanks again James for all your assistance. Cheers

James Rawkins was selling the property next door to my mother’s house and from the initial chat with him I was impressed. At a later meeting James outlined the options and gave us all the information we needed to make a decision regarding selling our mother’s house in a relaxed manner without pressure! The auctioneer and James’s assistant at the auction were very helpful on the day, which was sad for us. James was understanding, approachable and patient in the long wait for probate. Would highly recommend James to others!

James is a great Sales Representative! He’s easy to deal with, very organised and helpful and I’m happy with his performance. Excellent work James!

I think James Rawkins is an excellent agent who is very polite and honest. He made the process of purchasing this property so easy and worked within my time frames given how busy I was throughout the year.

We reviewed 6 real estate agents and we kicked ourselves that we didn't end up choosing James. Having been through the whole process now, I can tell you that you need someone who knows the local area. Our agent didn't realise the similar property up the road was undercutting us 3-4 weeks in, but James could rattle off local prices easily. It cost us about 3 weeks, and probably an amount equivalent to the entire commission. The other vital ingredient is the ability to negotiate. While you can learn certain skills, James has the inborn knack for it. These days it's so easy to sell a property through online sites but the people with sales ability will get you the best price. They'll also sell it quicker, which reduces your stress (something you won't appreciate until you've been through it). James gave us lots of tips and provided references with like-minded people. I believe he's genuine. Just make sure he's not overloaded before you book him!!

Nathan Keen

A very pleasant and professional performance with a good knowledge of the area and his craft. Together with Gordon Little, James Rawkins provided a very impressive team and I would recommend them to anyone.

I want to let you know how happy I am with the quality of the service you provided my family in selling our home. It was a sad thing to have to do but your happy demeanour and professional attitude made it easier. All the best for your future happiness.


James Rawkins did a great job for us on a previous sale and was an automatic choice for us on our second sale. He didn't disappoint. Every aspect of the sale process went exceptionally well, thanks largely to James. Aspects we particularly appreciated include: James is an excellent communicator, with us and prospective purchasers. James assessed what he felt should be done to the property prior to going to market. In doing this assessment James was focused on the potential types of purchaser (developers, family occupiers, etc). He was conscious of our capacity to follow his recommendations. His price recommendations proved realistic. Auction day went smoothly and it was clear that James had already established a rapport with several potential bidders. James looked after all contract formalities and followed up on all contract conditions. We were more than satisfied with the excellent work done by James Rawkins and the team at L J Hooker Walkerville Modbury Importantly the sale price exceeded our expectations. We could not have asked for more.

Ken Sporton

After meeting James we were completely at ease with him handling the sale of our home. He is very professional in all aspects of his job, and also very friendly and approachable. James kept us completely informed at all times during the time he was handling the sale of our home. He was always quick to return calls if he was not available at the time of us calling him. James worked hard negotiating with buyers for the sale of our home, constantly following up interested parties and reporting back to us with any new information. James is very professional, and we found him to be extremely friendly and approachable about all things relating to the sale of our home. He always handled things in a professional and timely manner, always with a smile! We would have no hesitation in recommending James to anyone looking to sell their home.

James Rawkins was very thorough with his assessment of the property and the potential expectations and he explained this in detail, with evidence, the reasoning behind this. He also suggested a number of selling strategies that we could adopt and was up front with the costs associated with each. His communication with us was first class and we knew where we were at every step of the way through the sales process and when the offers stated to come in we were overseas but that didn't phase James at all. With all our dealing with James he was friendly, listened and appreciated our circumstances. The whole process from commencement to finalisation went exactly how James told us it would be, that was really appreciated as it prevented any concerns. We would recommend James to anyone considering a land agent.
