Jim Ampelas - The 4101 French Touch
Exuding energy and with a distinctly European direct communication style, Jim distinguishes himself from other agents in the area through his international real estate experience, strong academic background having studied at Oxford University and his vibrant personality.
Having grown up in Cannes, South of France, Jim had an existing appreciation of historical buildings and architecture. This led him to work in the luxury real estate market of the French Riviera, where he honed his communication, eye for detail and negotiation skills in a high-end and competitive market.
Upon arriving in Australia, Jim immediately fell in love with the 4101 area - it was like a little slice of Europe in Brisbane. “West End has everything,” Jim states, “It has energy, diversity, it’s near the water - it’s colourful and multicultural, everything a buyer could want in a community”. After completing his Bachelor of Commerce (Honours), Jim threw himself into his career, and now resides in West End while being actively involved in the real estate community in surrounding Highgate Hill and South Brisbane.
At the negotiating table, Jim will fight tooth and nail to get his clients the premium price. He states, “Hard work will lead to results, and hard work is the least you can offer when someone trusts you with their most valuable asset”. As a seller, you can rest assured that Jim will be as passionate about your property as you are! His ability to sell the lifestyle and location to all potential buyers is a massive asset, “creating competition between buyers who can envision themselves in your home will only increase the final price.”
Outside of real estate, you will likely encounter Jim walking Hugo his cavoodle with a group of other locals on West End's riverside, volunteering at the French Festival and generally involving himself in the thriving international community in the 4101 area.
Jim is fluent in English, French, and Spanish and is currently learning Greek.
