Founder & Managing Director

Born and raised in Oxford, England. Anyone who has ever met Seb will soon tell you he lives and breathes property with an infectious enthusiasm like no other.

Starting out as a child obsessed with building Lego and Monopoly property empires, Seb’s passion, drive and tenacious attitude are innate with a determination to constantly improve both himself and the lives of those around him.

Post University, Seb rapidly moved through the ranks representing some of the very finest property agencies and data houses, honing his skills internationally in both Sydney, New York and the competitive central London markets as a Senior Property Negotiator, REA, Valuer and Buyers Agent.

A consecutive REINSW Excellence Awards finalist (2016-2020) in category of best buyers agent NSW, REB Buyers Agency of the Year Winner 2021 and winner of Your Investment Property Magazines ‘Best Buyers Agent Services’ 2019, Seb was elected the NSW state representative for REBAA (Real Estate Buyers Agents Association of Australia) in 2017-2019 and is consistently recognised by peers and clients alike as both a thought leader and one of Sydney’s best buyers agents and advocates.

Adopting a holistic and proactive approach, Seb’s in-depth local knowledge has not only ingrained a distinct cutting edge when negotiating on behalf of his clients, but allows him to gain true perspective for them when developing and executing a strategy to help them achieve their goals.

An experienced portfolio investor, with nearly 20 years of professional property success, Seb co-founded Hunter James with the goal of going beyond expectations and delivering only exceptional results.
