James Walsh is making a name for himself in the Hamilton real estate game.
He says his initial motivation for being in real estate was his desire to be out meeting people, instead of being stuck behind a desk.
James started with working with Lodge as a property manager before moving overseas, and eventually came back to Lodge as a salesperson at the City branch.
“The key thing for me that I appreciate at Lodge would be the culture." James says. "Everyone has a lot of fun here while still working hard. Lodge rewards loyalty and would go further than most employers if you got into either professional and personal strife."
“You always have a feeling that if you are honest and have integrity then Lodge will back you with anything. It makes me want to do the best I can for the company.”
A memorable moment from James’ time with Lodge was winning the Stag trophy with the Hamilton Marist Prems rugby team, which Lodge Real Estate were sponsoring. The support he received when he proudly showed the trophy at the 2015 Annual Awards the same night was 'phenomenal'.
James has recently undertaken selling the residential lots of Parkhaven Luxury Apartments, one of Hamilton’s most exciting upcoming developments.
