James Dunn

Some might say it was inevitable that James would make real estate his career, as he possesses many of his well known and well respected father, Michael Dunn's traits. Having been influenced over the years observing the success his father enjoyed, James developed a desire to follow that lead.

Completing a degree in Bachelor of Commerce in Property Economics James commenced his career in 2003 with R & W Double Bay in the Property Management Department. After eighteen months in this fast paced environment he decided to broaden his horizons in the European market in the prestigious South Kensington/Chelsea Branch. However, home beckoned and the sunshine and Sydney lifestyle was too hard to ignore.

Returning to R & W Double Bay was part of his greater plan and initially enjoying working as a Sales Associate focussing closely on buyer management, James used the opportunity to reacquaint himself with the local market trends and values. 'I believe that I offer a service that is unmatched, something quite different from our competitors, and something that clients will enjoy the benefits from,' says James.

James says... 'I want clients to feel that the property, whilst an integral part of the process, is not the only factor, it is the relationship and the manner in which the transaction takes place that will stay with them long after the contract is signed.'

James became a Partner in the business in 2014 after proving himself as a fiercely determined professional keen to earn a solid reputation of respect from his clients and one where they truly consider him 'their agent'.

What People Say

  • R&W (James Dunn) were appointed to act on behalf of multiple vendors for the sale of a unit in Woollahra. The expereince and the result was very positive with the property being sold at auction for well in excess of the reserve.

    While R&W had previously leased the property, as a recently appointed executor, I had no prior experience in dealing with them. They made the sale easy: arranging for some minor repairs, the styling of the vacant unit and introducing us to suitable lawyers. We had sensible discussions around the reserve and they dealt with all stakeholders fairly in a polite and courteous manner
    Michael Parshall
  • Professional Agent!

    I was referred to James by an associate and from the first contact he was totally professional in his approach to all aspects throughout the sale. He listened and came fully prepared after doing his research and provided supporting information about the market trends and expectations.

    His advice and suggestions are based on fact, research and experience which as a vendor gave me a great deal of confidence in the decisions I had to make.

    The best judgement to any review is when asked " would you use him again?" My answer is Yes without hesitation.

  • James Dunn: your perfect property partner

    I sold my apartment in Double Bay with the help of James and his team. This was my first-ever property sale, and complicated by the fact that I live overseas and had to manage the process remotely.

    It was incredibly reassuring to have James' knowledge and experience supporting every step of the process. The sales campaign was targeted to perfection and delivered an auction result 30% higher than estimated.

    I'd love to buy another property in the area just so that James could help me sell that too :-)

  • 5 Star Experience!

    James is an extremely accomplished salesman. He is polite, a hard worker and totally committed to his vendor. My property was not a run of the mill property, James worked extremely hard and produced a great result.

    James would always be my go to choice of agent for buying or selling. He really delivered a stress free sale.

  • Extremely helpful!

    I had the pleasure of working with James and his team for the first time during the sale of my property in Rose Bay in 2017, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

    James is mature beyond his years, presents himself with confidence, possesses great people skills,and he has a warm wit, which is sometimes needed when selling property. He also demonstrates good intelligence about the market and property values. He is honest, he communicates clearly, and he cares about his clients and will go the extra mile to make sure his clients are happy.

    James impressed me with his enthusiasm, his integrity and his commitment to work hard on my behalf. He was also easy to deal with and I'm sure he's on the way to becoming one of the finest agents of Richardson and Wrench in Australia.

  • Our experience with James and his team was positive in every aspect. We found James pleasant to deal with and constantly available to answer questions and address concerns.

    James and his team regularly updated us with progress reports and offered excellent strategy advice.

    James went above and beyond our expectations, often working hard for us outside of regular business hours. I would not hesitate to recommend James and his team.

  • Property sale 1 of 2

    This property was part of a deceased estate and there were several issues to be resolved before it could be sold.

    James and his staff were always ready to assist in any way they could to resolve the issues and to ensure that the best price was achieved.

    Totally professional and trustworthy organisation!
    Highly recommended.

  • Property sale 2 of 2

    This property was part of a deceased estate and James advised the executor the best way to approach the sale of this property. We were extremely satisfied with the advice and assistance James gave us leading up to the auction and we are very happy with the result achieved.

    James Dunn is a thorough gentleman. No problem was too large and it was a pleasure to have James and the staff of Richardson and Wrench Double Bay acting on our behalf. We were kept fully informed during the entire process.

  • I have dealt with James Dunn for two different properties (buying and selling my properties) and can genuinely say that he has done an incredible job for me on both counts.

    To whom it may concern, I have been buying and selling properties for over 35 years and I believe that James Dunn is the most knowledgeable and professional agent I have ever dealt with to date and I have no issue with James using me as a personal reference. I wish James every success for the future.

  • I used James Dunn to sell an apartment in Oxford St, Darlinghurst in early November. As it was part of my father’s estate, he was very caring and gave me good advice at each step. He continually updated me on developments. When the existing tenant became difficult, James went to see him to sit down and chat; he got to the bottom of the problem and proposed a solution that everybody was happy with. Before the Auction James was very helpful with bidders’ last minute contract change advice, at the auction we had 6 bidders and he worked hard to get a result well above the reserve.

    I was so pleased that I again used James for a second property that I was going to sell later next year and moved the second property forward to mid-December. I have found James to be very accommodating. He is communicative and understanding with a “nothing is a problem attitude”. He definitely puts in extra effort and I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • I highly recommend James as an agent - both from a buyer's and vendor's point of view.

    His excellent market knowledge of the Eastern Suburbs gave me confidence in his approach, while his authentic and determined nature helped achieve a great outcome for this sale.
    Kinsey Yuen
  • My wife and I have known James Dunn for over 3 years and recently he sold our property in Paddington for a strong price. James sold us the property 3 years earlier so we have had the benefit of observing him on both the buying and selling side of a transaction.

    Through both processes - buying and selling, we found James to be honest and diligent and his advice and assistance invaluable throughout. It’s a rare thing for an agent to be able to provide balanced and insightful advice to all parties involved. It is a real credit to James communication skills and integrity.

    We wish James every success and expect to deal with him again
    Michael Fenech
  • We would like to acknowledge the fabulous experience we have had in dealing with James in the recent sale of our apartment in Woollahra. We believe that their commitment and dedication to us as clients was incredible. Their focus on end result was beyond question and their motivating advice, detailed reporting and patient and calm attitude during the process was highly appreciated, especially for newbies to the real estate game like us. We truly wouldn't have been able to do it without them.

    From the onset we had confidence we were in the right hands and have no hesitation in recommending either or both as well as the dedicated sales and administration team behind them to others who value professionalism, honesty and integrity. Everything along the process was done with urgency and smile. Hugely professional whilst maintaining a friendly relationship! Thank you!
    Martin Hegarty
  • James Dunn`s qualities include some not always found in members of his profession. He never oversells and is extremely patient. He is realistic in assessing possibilities and always ready to discuss alternatives. He is very accessible often at unsocial hours and rapid to respond. He is sensitive to nuances in his interpersonal relationships.

    All in all I cannot recommend him too highly.
    David Rogers
  • Thank you for the good wishes, I am extremely pleased with the outcome. You did an outstanding job, as did the auctioneer. Smiles all round.
    Dorothy Jones
  • Through R&W, Double Bay, I have recently had the pleasure of being a client of James Dunn whom I would highly recommend if you want the best results for your sale.
    He is a charming and obliging agent to work with, always cheery and inclusive, ensuring that as a vendor I was made to feel part of the team.
    This is most helpful at what can be an emotional and stressful time.
    He works hard for his clients, irrespective of the size of the property and achieve the right outcome - so what more could you ask?

  • I want to thank James Dunn for producing an outstanding result on the recent sale of my apartment in Cook Road, Centennial Park. James worked effectively to make both me as the seller, and our potential buyers comfortable and informed throughout the sale process. I was not only very happy with the sale price, but I have a lasting memory of James taking the time to make each potential purchaser on the auction night feel relaxed and listened to. James genuinely cares about doing the best he can for everybody involved, and I think it is this genuine approach that resulted in such a great sale. I look forward to having him assist me purchase a new home in the future.

  • It is my pleasure to recommend James Dunn. He has recently sold my mothers unit in Rose Bay.
    From the start James was always generous with his time, advice, help and reassurance which made the whole procedure of preparing, presenting and selling my elderly mothers unit so much easier.
    Together with James, my family and I were able to make the process a profound and pleasurable experience doing justice to the unit, my mother, myself and my family. James acted with generosity of spirit and integrity for myself and prospective buyers at all times and kept us up to date with the latest information after all open days and inspections.
    We were amazed and delighted at the result of the auction and I would like to thank all at Richardson and Wrench who supported us so warmly through our process.
    And to James a special thank you for the work you do with the Starlight Foundation. My grandson and family received this wonderful gift of a family holiday providing much needed joy, hope and happiness after a stressful and traumatic year last year.

  • I am writing to you to express my sincere thanks and gratitude with regards to the sale of our property which was nothing less than exceptional. James communication about the marketing, upcoming auction and potential buyers was outstanding both in its quality and quantity. Your enthusiasm left me in no doubt that every avenue had been pursued to achieve a positive outcome. I felt, as a vendor, totally confident going into the auction that we would achieve the desired result given the backing of both James and your agency and the professionalism of all involved. I have no hesitations in recommending both James and your agency to prospective vendors and buyers.

  • James Dunn, from Richardson & Wrench, recently handled the sale of my apartment in Double Bay. From the very first time I met James, I found him to be very personable and caring while maintaining his professionalism. As a widow, aged seventy, attending bereavement counselling following the death of my husband, James was a tower of strength at such a difficult time. His advice to auction my apartment was the right advice, although I was anxious, having never even attended an auction. I believe that it was James handling of the sale of my apartment, and his regular contact with the people interested in buying it, that helped my apartment reach a price $50,000 above the reserve, and $30,000 above what I had hoped for. If you are looking to sell and/or buy any property, I highly recommend James to you.

  • I am writing on behalf of my wife and I to thank you for the fantastic job you did in securing the sale of our apartment in Bellevue Hill. I was most impressed that you were able to arrange a first inspection with only 2 days notice and the enthusiasm and professionalism with which you promoted our property throughout the course of the campaign was no doubt the key to our success on the evening of the auction. I have nothing but praise for the way in which you approached each step of the marketing campaign. Your knowledge of the industry, together with your refined negotiating skills and honest and trustworthy approach is commendable and an asset to Richardson & Wrench Double Bay. I would highly recommend your services.
