Life-loving, positive and driven to succeed, Jesse Johnston’s had an appreciation for property investing since a young age. It’s a long-standing interest which was always going to result in a real-estate-based career for this high-energy Queenstowner. Jesse’s built the foundations of a salesperson vocation on solid ground, having already worked within the industry in customer service, PA and marketing and rental roles. These experiences mean a wide knowledge base that’s indispensable to property buyers and sellers, with a special understanding of rental investments from both sides of the coin.
Willing to innovate and embrace the ever-changing, merging landscapes of property sales and technology, Jesse’s outside-the-box approach to marketing and generating enquiry mean no stone is left unturned in the pursuit of a sale. Problem-solving comes as naturally as Jesse’s easy-flowing communication, ensuring that vendors are always aware of how their sale is progressing and are comfortable it’s in safe hands. When asked about his motivation for working in this dynamic industry, Jesse’s answer is simple – ‘I want to help people make transitions in their life. People perceive it can be hard to make Queenstown home, and I want to show them how it can be straightforward’.
Brimming with both passion for property and energy for life, when he’s not working with clients, Jesse can be found taking advantage of the Queenstown lifestyle as an avid snowboarder.
"Richie and Jesse pulled out all the stops when it came to selling my property. They were super flexible as it was a successful holiday home, and made sure that viewings worked around the bookings. You were always kept up to date and as an owner in another part of the country, you knew you could trust them to take care of your interests. I wouldn't hesitate to do business with them and the team at Colliers." Elle
"Jesse helped us to buy a property. As an overseas buyer we had to rely on Jesse's know how, guidance and local connections to get the purchase executed. While this was a great experience for us as buyers, what really impressed me was the service after. Jesse continues to be available for questions and I feel he wants all clients to be satisfied. Should we decide to sell our house sometime in the future, we will contact Jesse to be our agent." Mark
"Due to a growing family, earlier this year it was time for us to sell our beloved first home. After meeting with multiple agents, Richie & Jesse were an obvious choice. We never felt 'sold' to. Instead we received genuine effort and a team that just got the job done. We sold our house for what we had hoped for a week before the auction. Dream result. Thanks guys." Samantha
"This was our first house sale and we were very, very happy with the service we received. I was genuinely impressed by how friendly and professional everyone was. Richie and Jesse were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Richie kept us focused (and calmed me down) during our somewhat drawn out offer and ensured we made it to the finish line. I would have no hesitation recommending them." Gavin
"Thank you both for the outstanding result you achieved for the sale of our Cameron Place property. You were both a pleasure to work with. You made what had the potential to be a difficult transaction seem easy because of your solution focused attitude. We would recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell property in Queenstown." David & Alison
"Richie, Jesse and the wider team were fantastic to work with in marketing our home. We felt we really benefited from the team approach and that all consultants were part of the sales process. The team were prompt with providing information after inspections so we felt we were really part of the sales process and were fully aware with where the market was at. The marketing campaign was fun and stress-free for us. On auction night we got a fantastic result, well beyond what we ever thought our property would sell for!" Holly & James
"I must say that Jesse was just fantastic during this whole process. I found him to be very honest, very proactive and extremely helpful during the process." Shareen
“We thought we would sell our house privately, but after inviting Jesse to our house for a market appraisal we quickly felt we were in good hands with Jesse and Richie. Their enthusiastic yet calm demeanour made the process much less stressful and was quick to provide good advice and with no pressure. Wanting a quick sale, we felt Jesse and Richie could deliver that for us while ensuring we were getting a fair market price. We were blown away to get a fantastic offer after only 4 days on the market, reflecting that hard work up front to market the property. We thank them for being amazingly supportive, swift, enthusiastic and providing great communication throughout the process. Who knew it could be so easy? Thanks Jesse, you’re a star!” John and Rhonda
