I have been dealing with James Mullins in purchasing a rental property in Christchurch. I still can’t quite believe the professional, helpful and friendly manner in which James dealt with me. He recommended a property, did all the negotiations for purchase, recommended items that needed attention (from the building report he arranged) and got these sorted, including the cleaning of carpets. Potential tenants were screened and recommendations shared with me. 3 weeks after settlement James had the property tenanted. His knowledge and attention to detail made the purchase so much smoother than I could have hoped for. Baring in mind that I’m currently based in the UK so much of my correspondence with James was outside of his normal working hours. I have dealt with First National for over 20 years and am a big fan of theirs. Trustworthy, professional and efficient.
