What people say about Sails Real Estate Merimbula

Sale of land at 9 Bournda Cct

A few years ago, James was involved with the sale of my previous home and I found him to be honest, professional and astute to the needs of both buyer and seller. When listing my land I had no hesitation in seeking him out to act for me again. Once again, I could relax knowing my property was in good hands, that it would be marketed appropriately and that I would only receive genuine offers.


Excellent Result

My family and l would like to thank James for his excellent effort towards the sale of my parents home. It was not an easy decision and we appreciate all his assistance throughout the process. We believe his attention to details and professionalism were key to the success we achieved. Most importantly his genuine and understanding nature was recognized by all of my family.

Roz Clifton

My husband and I have recently sold our property with Sails Real Estate and found dealing with James a pleasure. Nothing was ever too much (including all guests to open homes removing their shoes!). They respected our wishes and were always very honest and helpful. We had a very quick sale and we were very pleased with the result. I cannot recommend James and the team at Sails enough, if your looking for a Real estate agent that looks after the vendor then think Sails! Thank you again James

Steph and Mark

I found James to be extremely professional. I would recommend James on any property dealings.

Joan Caldwell

I was very pleased with James Smith from ‘Sails’ in Merimbula. James was always there when needed and he had an open ear for everything that was of my concern, he not only had an open ear, he also reacted immediately on all. I can strongly recommend him. He is not pushy, but leaves you space, and he does his job really well. I wish him all the best for his future and lots of happy clients. He sincerely deserves that.


Trevor at Sails impressed me with his market knowledge. He showed me comparables to my home and some below and some above. It allowed me to understand where my place fit in the current market. Showing commenced immediately. My place sold within a month of signing.

Angela Brittain

Professional, attentative, personable and a beautiful person. Always smiling and obliging.


Rob & Jany Butta welcomed James & the Sails Team with their professional & friendly service with great communication

Jany and Rob

Trevor is a really nice person. I walked into the office to get random information. We talked. He immediately took me to the house I liked. Nothing was too much trouble. Communication was above great. Thanks Trevor.

Kim Jones

We tried the rest and finally found the best!!! Great result and great effort

Claude Gayle

Trevor was absolutely fabulous and we could not have got a more helpful pleasant person to deal with. He handled all the little issues professionally and made himself available at any time to guide us through our purchase. We would highly recommend Trevor to anyone.


Trevor recently helped my partner and I purchase a property in Merimbula. He was very patient and helpful with the vendors, myself and my partner. He maintained great communication throughout the entire process with the both of us and I highly recommended Trevor to anyone seeking to purchase or list a property within Merimbula and surrounding areas.

Tarry & Lucas

After considering several agents to list our home for sale, we decided Trevor Miller from Sails Real Estate was the most positive and enthusiastic regarding the saleability of our home. He saw past the negatives, that others mentioned during their appraisals; such as the steep drive, many access steps, weatherboard construction. Trevor instead highlighted the unique features he believed would make the property a relatively quick sale. History proved Trevor’s assessment correct; the sale negotiated within the first month following an intensive marketing program. Not only did Trevor sell our home quickly, he achieved a sale price that exceeded the asking price, making for very happy vendors. My wife and I would recommend Trevor and Sails Real Estate to all vendors looking for an honest, hard working and professional team to sell their property.

Review on James Smith Hi its Steve and Yvonne Miller We purchased a house at 18 Teal Court Merimbula NSW using Sails Real Estate and James Smith was our sales consultant. We found James and organised and very communicative consultant who always made himself available for house views inc outside normal hours and weekends. He was helpful in the final negotiation and was keen to get the deal done in a professional way. We appreciated his demeanor at all times and would recommend him to others looking to buy or sell!!!

Steve and Yvonne Miller

I have bought and sold 10 houses and found James to be the best agent I have ever dealt with. He was intuitive, understanding, patient, professional and charming. AND best of all, he sold me a house, (above my original budget) that I absolutely love. I highly recommend James if you are buying OR selling.

Carolynn Brown

We came to Trevor with a number and he exceeded our expectations and delivered the goods very happy with his performance thanks.


Trevor Miller & the whole team at Sails were exceptional. They gave me the best advice on how to sell my property and when it came down the final negotiation Trevor did not compromise my position in any way (as did a previous agent). I found him fully supportive as an agent & when just before exchange there were some minor glitches he took over & resolved them.I couldnt speak more highly of Trevor (and James & Steve). These guys give real estate agents a good name. Unlike other agents you get the impression that they are there do to the best for you…and they are.


Fantastic agent. Looked after us the whole way. Thanks Trevor.

Kim and Liz

Trevor was always available to assist us outside hours due to us travelling interstate to view properties. He was honest and provided his knowledge of not only the area but also the properties we inspected. We are so happy with our holiday house and look forward to many fantastic adventures in this great spot. Thanks heaps Trevor.

Danielle Pearson

I have dealt with Steve Haslam from Sales Real Estate twice now. On both occasions, not only has Steve and his team provided excellent and knowledgable service, they have made me feel like family. For someone who knew absolutely no one when I moved to Merimbula, this degree of friendliness was welcoming and made my transition so much easier. Steve and the team always communicated in a timely manner, kept me up to date on how the purchase and sale were going and acquired a great buying price and excellent selling price for my property. I would never hesitate in recommending Steve and Sails Real Estate to any prospective purchaser and seller.

Jacqueline Crockford

in the beginning I thought he was just a well dressed kid ….. By the time we closed the deal, James had my utmost respect. The utmost.

Our experience with James Smith was fantastic! His knowledge of the local market, professionalism, attention to detail & quality of service is first class. Having qualified well informed buyers through our property was a top priority for us & James delivered on this each time. James was an excellent communicator during the entire process & we always felt in control of the decisions, with no agent pressure. His accuracy in the property valuation & the time frame in which is was achieved was very impressive & we couldn’t be happier with the end result. Thankyou so much James!

We found James to be honest and reliable and an excellent communicator. He was proactive and took the time to understand our requirements (as buyers) and worked hard to locate suitable properties. It was a pleasure working with him and we would have no hesitation in recommending him to buyers or sellers.
