Sales & Leasing
Coming from a property family, James has had over 7 years of experience in commercial & industrial sales and leasing in the southern & south western suburbs of Sydney.
Having completed his Bachelor of Property Economics at the University of Technology Sydney in addition to his Real Estate Licence, James has achieved a lot in his time in commercial & industrial sales & leasing. His point of difference is that he takes a very analytical & valuation approach to negotiation which has enabled him to close several large scale deals and helped him secure several premier appointments with corporate clients such as Abacus Property Group, Centuria, Cerno, Goodman Group and many others.
James is a strong believer that a ‘property well listed is a property half sold’ and puts ample time & effort into the listing process and keeps his clients regularly updated with clear, no-nonsense feedback and solutions on how to get their property sold or leased for the best possible result. James knows his market inside out and during negotiation he is very creative with his deals leaving no stone unturned.
Outside of work James loves all sports, particularly cricket having previously competed in the Sydney Grade Competition representing the St George District Cricket Club. He has also swum at State Level and is currently participating in many social sporting competitions with friends.
“We were looking for an office in the Hurstville area and we came across an office on real commercial that looked like it could be suitable for our business. It was little difficult because our company's head office is in Adelaide, however, Gunning Commercial were excellent and made the process very smooth, providing us with excellent service. From our first dealings with them, they have been professional, obliging, communicative and friendly. The whole process was done in a timely manner so that we were able to open on time without any delays or mishaps. Gunning Commercial continues to provide us fantastic service and I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone wanting to lease office space.”
“I have been extremely impressed by James’ customer service and professionalism. I think he has a lot of credibility and integrity and represents Gunnings very well.”
“James McKenny introduced and leased the final vacant space we had in our property at 12 Butler Road, Hurstville. Once the deal was negotiated, James worked diligently to manage the process of finalising the lease terms and conditions. This also included working with the tenant’s and landlord’s consultants to obtain the appropriate approvals for the change of use, and in turn finalise the deal. James was diligent, responsive and creative in helping complete a complex transaction.”
