I recently caught up with James Montano of Buxton Ballarat for a coffee at the newly established 1816 Bakehouse, and aside from learning that James became a fully licensed agent as of late 2018, with three years in the industry and in excess of $52 million dollars of sales under his belt, I found him to be a relaxed and pretty chatty bloke.
Here's some of the topics we covered during the course of our discussion and what I learned about James:
His favorite food is – Chicken
He loves talking about – Anything in general really ( I can vouch for James on this one! 😉)
The last song he listened to was – Higher Love - Kygo / Whitney Houston
His favorite movie genre is – Action
He really wishes he had more time to – Travel
His favorite city is – NYC (yep, we love NYC too 🗽)
He thinks the best aspect of his job is – Once we have closed a deal, see very happy vendors and also see the reaction of purchasers purchasing their dream home.
James feels that the one thing all buyers have in common is – Excitement / Passion
He believes that the one thing all vendors should know is – The Process - Trust the process
James tells me that If he didn’t sell real estate he would – be a Storm Chaser (ok, this one goes to the top of our topic list for our next catch up James 😂)
Finally, it didn't seem right to let James go without asking him what he thought it was important for people to know about the agency he represents, Buxton Ballarat and how he feels that Buxton differs from other agencies.
James told us that, 'at Buxton Real Estate, we pride ourselves on achieving the best possible outcome for our vendors each and every time, which comes from our premium marketing campaigns, technology, negotiating skill set and a huge reach within our data base throughout Victoria.'
Thanks for your time James & to 1816 Bakehouse for some excellent hospitality!
