Sales & Marketing Consultant


James McKinlay is a Sales & Marketing Consultant  working within the Ray White Bulimba & East Brisbane Team.   

Specialising in the Brisbane City luxury apartment market, James has transacted over $30m in sales, and in 2019 achieved the year’s highest residential CBD sale at $5m. This result also set a new benchmark of $16,000 per square meter.

Behind James’ successful real estate career are his Diploma of Finance and 10 years’ experience in sales and contracts negotiation.  Decades of personal involvement with building, renovating and property investment have further shaped his broad industry knowledge. 

Recognised for his exceptional service, James has been described by former clients as attentive, responsive and prepared to go above and beyond in pursuit of a swift and lucrative outcome.  

His profound understanding of what high-end buyers are searching for, combined with his intuitive approach to marketing and fierce negotiation skills have contributed to a higher-than-average sales price in his corner of the market.

A dynamic individual who lives and breathes the River City’s unique lifestyle, James’ local market knowledge is second to none.  Excited by Brisbane’s sustained high-end apartment growth and rapid expansion of the city itself, James has his finger on the pulse of all current market trends. He recognises the buying shift across all demographics to seek lower maintenance luxury properties; and his ability to relate to all buyers, from downsizers, to executives, families and investors has set him up for success in this highly specialised area.

Bringing professionalism, integrity and a proven track record to Brisbane’s flourishing inner-city apartment market, James continues to deliver superior real estate results to his valued clients.
