I can't speak highly enough of James Cahill and his professionalism, courtesy, market savvy and energy. A total delight to work with - by far the best agent I've worked with in over forty years.
Chose Belle because of prestigious brand name, location. James also made the difference, he seemed experienced was down to earth and easy to talk to, offering information without the "hard sell"
My first point of contact with James was regarding general information over the phone about a "maybe" sale. I was pleased with his prompt and clear communication regarding marketing, costing and commission etc via email. After receiving this info we felt confident to proceed.
It seemed a good match when James suggested private treaty for our property which we believed was the best way to sell. The whole transaction was seamless from first point of contact to end. James was good value for money as he was energetic and stayed three steps ahead with every aspect of the process. It was end of year, with only a few business days to seal the deal and we were winding down, but James's energy did not wane!
He was prompt and clear in communicating every detail and he negotiated well between buyer and seller. Good job. l would definitely use James again and would highly recommend him.
James is a professional and excellent real estate agent who I would recommend highly. He was efficient in his communication and kept us well informed. He is very personable and his knowledge and skills definitely was paramount in making the process seamless and easy for us. James is articulate and thorough with his work and guidance. He was truly a pleasure to work with.
James recently worked closely with me during preparation and inspections before the auction of my house. He was at all times professional, courteous and helpful.
What set him apart was the personal support and kindness he gave during a time that is stressful for all homeowners. Nothing was too much trouble for him and I was confident that whatever happened he’d be there to provide reassurance or practical help if needed. I was also very impressed that he always arrived early to set up before open inspections and quickly provided concise and informative updates afterwards.
I give James sincere thanks for making the experience of selling my house as smooth as possible and for helping to achieve a record sale price in our street.
I highly recommend him to prospective clients.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with James on the sale of my unit. Getting a result I was happy with. Throughout the process he was communicative and informative. He is easy to trust and I felt no pressure with whatever decisions were made. We were on the same page throughout the process. He understood and talked through concerns I had as they came up. I would 100% recommend James to any prospective sellers/ buyers.
James was excellent in achieving the best possible result on the auction of my apartment. His attention to detail and vast knowledge of the market as well as keeping me informed at every step of the way was extraordinary. I'd happy recommend James and his team.
James was a fantastic agent for the sale of our property in Glebe. He provided invaluable advice and assistance on the preparation of the property for sale, including styling and painting. During the showing of the property he was frequently in contact with updates about interested buyers and feedback from inspections. He was easily contactable, and always got back to us quickly when we needed to speak to him. His knowledge of the property market in Glebe is second-to-none, and helped us navigate our way through the offers and auction process. He is also friendly and approachable making the process of selling the property an enjoyable one which was relatively free of stress. I could not recommend James and Belle Property Glebe more highly to anyone looking to buy or sell a property in the Glebe area.
The results speak for themselves! Mark and James did a terrific job at all levels - communicating, advising, negotiating, marketing and selling. It was all pretty painless really.
They say dreams do come true. With the right agent and the right strategy things can be made to happen. James did all that and more.
From the moment we met both Mark Tooth and James Cahill, they had been excellent! They understood exactly how we wanted to sell the property and did the whole sale marketing process accordingly and efficiently. Of course they gave great valuable advice too! We thoroughly enjoyed working with them and fully appreciated their professionalism, prompt responses, cheerfulness, expertise...And they sold the property in 10 days! Definitely recommend the both of them!
Thank you Mark and James!"
James Cahill & Mark Tooth of Belle Property Glebe, came highly recommended to me from a mentor and friend who has spent several decades at the top of the global corporate ladder. She and I were both amazed by the professionalism that the Belle Glebe team exuded. They are not only a cut above the rest, but entirely different from any other realestate agency we’ve come across. My friend successfully sold 2 properties and purchased another with them, transacting $10M’s; and I recently sold my city apartment under auction, on the advice of James Cahill and achieved $200k more than the best I had hoped for. As such, we both spent a great deal of time with James, Mark and the team, getting to know them personally and how they do business. We felt comfortable to trust them absolutely, and that there were no grey areas in there knowledge or abilities. As professional people, I would have no hesitation to dropped them into any corporate environment. This is a far cry from nearly every other realestate agent & agency team I have come across, who I find akin to used car salesman. In conclusion, the sales process was painless and the advice accurate. So if you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with James and Belle Property Glebe, but did not take it, you would be making a very bad business decision.
"We recently sold our terrace home in Forest Lodge (Glebe, NSW) through James Cahill of Belle Properties, Forest Lodge. James and the team at Belle are exceptional and did the following things that were important to us;
1. applied superior knowledge of the local area (real estate, attractions and good and services)
2. quickly understood our goal. Didn't waste our time. Told us what we needed to know (as frequently as required - but was brief and to the point)
3. proactive in dealing with potential buyers, gathering useful intelligence in a non-confronting/personalised manner. Extremely respectful in responding to all inquiries.
4. set realistic timeframes and parameters for the sale. The plan was clear from the very commencement.
We were able to establish a relationship with James Cahill, and he earned our trust. For example we were happy to allow him access to our home outside the agreed times. We have pets, so being able to trust James to access the home and manage our pets while prospective purchasers were viewing the home was very important to us.
James and the team at Belle Properties work in a competitive environment and they are very successful. The difference between Belle and other agents is that they genuinely work as a team and they invest in the success of others. This is an important cultural and behavioural attribute because it wasn't just that we were going to get a great sales executive, we were getting a great sales team from across the office of Belle Properties in Forest Lodge. Each team member knew what was appropriate and where things were up too.
We would use James Cahill and the Belle team again. If you want value for money, professional sales support (every step of the way) and an excellent human being to sell or buy a property you should give James Cahill a call - see whether you agree with our testimonial - you've got nothing to loose and a great deal to gain."
By far the best selling experience I have ever had with minimal stress and a great result. I would thoroughly recommend James Cahill for his integrity and his straight forward dealings....this must come through to the buyers as well which I believe is the reason that James gets the results that he does. It was a pleasure dealing with James Cahill and I look forward to further dealings with him.
Since my decision to sell my unit, I've interviewed over 6 agents and checked out their credentials. All agents had good experience, but only one agent did not keep calling me all the time, pretending they were my friend or simply following up all the time--this agent was James Cahill from Belle Properties Glebe. James waited for the 12 or so months it took me to make up my mind about selling. I called him many times during this period with all sorts of questions and he was always helpful but never pushed me to do anything. Finally, when I placed my home in James' hands to sell, he was excellent. He put up with my obsession about my very sneaky kitty escaping during an open for inspection. Mia, my cat, took to James (which is a plus for him), and I believe she even came out from under the bed to say "hello" to some of the prospective buyers. You know the phrase "Love me, love my dog?" or in my case, "Love me, love my cat." James always respected my wishes, all of which revolved around Mia--the real owner of my unit :) The strongest point about James is his negotiating skills, especially in the face of the owner (that being me) getting too emotionally involved in the process. James kept a cool head for both of us and in the end he got me the best deal I could imagine. James knows his market, his audience and he's in every way a professional. My only negative point about James is that he didn't know who Ziggy Stardust was, but when I told him it was David Bowie he understood. I guess being younger than me, James was no around during the Ziggy days. In any case, James put up with all my comments about David Bowie (and I must have driven him mad, but he took it well). The only thing James failed to deliver on was to find the man himself and bring him home to me. Oh well, all agents can't be perfect, but at least he tried. Thank you, James. When I finally do meet David Bowie I'll call you to sell his penthouse apartment in NYC :D
For a first home buyer I was pleasantly surprised at how friendly and accessible both James and Belle Property were. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.
Mark and James,
Thank you for your professionalism and support in selling my property in Glebe Gardens. In all aspects the sales process has been a good experience. You ensured requirements ran smoothly, dealing with other organisation’s such as strata management and agencies when needed - and arranging capable, prompt and reasonably priced contractors for the various minor repairs needed.
Thanks also for your open and transparent approach and for keeping me updated throughout the process.
Sincerely, Brenda Hunter
I would like to thank you for handling the sale of my property in Five Dock. I was delighted with the result and impressed by the grace and integrity with which you managed the transaction. It was a difficult decision to move after 30 years at the same address and I was grateful for your guidance, expertise and understanding (which extended to keeping an eye on my stressed cat).
Your targeted marketing campaign was extremely effective and I appreciated the effort you made to keep me informed at every step of the way. Communication was honest and open, negotiations with prospective buyers were transparent, and the entire process was a testimony to your professionalism. Many thanks, James. I’ll certainly be recommending your services, and the services of Belle Property Glebe, to my friends.
With over 30 years of dealing with agents, my overall impressions have been, I regret to say, dismal. James was recommended by a reliable business colleague and I trusted his advice. James is clearly a true professional and enthused in his work - I honestly cannot fault his professionalism, skills, knowledge, willingness to put himself out to help, negotiation skills - and - genuinely friendly and trustworthy with a natural sense of humour. His approach was simple - but very skillful. Meaning, that he treated us with respect with no 'spin' or patronising. He 'listened' - provided good advice and options but always left the ultimate decisions in our hands. He never over or undervalued, was not opinionated and never used any of the common misleading and inappropriate tactics that has given the industry its poor consumer confidence. It was a pleasure to work with James.
I would like to thank James for his outstanding manor with dealing with a very special family home, as we live in Canberra and trusting James with a nearly 1.5 million property put my mind at ease, he had excellent communication at all times. James at Belle Property Glebe is a true professional and I will use James again with other properties we have in Sydney. I can only rate James to the highest and wish Belle Property Glebe were in Canberra as I cannot get an agent to return my calls as I am wishing to buy properties here.
James Cahill was very professional, honest in his dealings with me and very helpful through a busy and stressful time. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others.
Dear Mark & James,
Thank you for all your help with the Rogerson-Anlezark property portfolios over the past months. We very much appreciate all you efforts, as well as your professionalism and good humour. We couldn’t be happier in our new home.
All the best Anne & Dan
I have been in real estate for over 30 years and have dealt with numerous agents and I would like to say that my dealings with James was possibly my best experience with any agent over that time.
I found James to be extremely professional, knowledgeable, transparent and performed his role as an agent should.
I found he delivered on his word and full of integrity. It was a pleasure to deal with James in this transaction and I have no hesitation in using James once more or recommending him to others. In fact I kept management of this property with Belle because of James and not with my normal agent who is managing other properties of mine.
A total dream!
Thanks so much for making it easy and not a stressful process.
You realise how over cooked other agents in Sydney make
buying and selling property.
"Belle Property Glebe are the best. I really felt I could trust them with every aspect of the sale, and the result they delivered was exceptional. Mark's advice and local knowledge was amazing, and all the suggestions paid off on Auction day! Mark and James worked so hard, nothing was too much trouble. I recommend Mark Tooth, James Cahill and the team at Belle Property Glebe wholeheartedly."
Thanks for all the hard work especially through the drama. You guys are definitely the best in town and appreciate everything you've done for my family.
