Looie and Jim had come highly recommended to us from friends who had sold houses through them twice before.  You could not meet a friendlier, more down to earth team of real estate agents.  They were open and honest about the whole process and we felt very comfortable with them right from the beginning.  Also because they live in the area we knew that they had good knowledge about the area we were selling in.  They are incredibly hard working.  They spent a lot of time following up with potential buyers and they provided us with regular feedback throughout the sales process. The process of selling a house can be very stressful, especially when you are selling by auction, but Looie and Jim were very supportive and reassuring through the sales campaign and this was definitely the least stressful sales process we have been through. We could not fault their service and support and we would love to work with them again.

I'm delighted to record a reference for Looie and Jim. They are a total team, but more importantly for vendors, they are a totally professional team. It was as if they were working only for us. We had total faith in them, and enjoyed all our contacts. It will be a pleasure to watch them continue to flourish in this market and we will always enjoy bumping into them in the township and hearing how well they are doing. Effort deserves a reward, and they deserve it. I can't close without congratulating your company for backing them up the way you do, but it was the way they did it that did it for us.

To whom it may concern. When we decided to put our house in Kaukapakapa on the market, we asked three different Real Estate Companies to value our property and advise us on how it should be marketed. From the day Looie and Jim from Harcourt’s in Helensville introduced themselves to us, they made us feel very much at ease and explained everything in layman’s terms. How the property should be marketed, open homes etc, and most importantly, their estimate of the expected sales value. As it turned out, their estimate was spot on. During the marketing process they contacted us after each open home with detail about the people who came and their reactions and comments, and provided a weekly report confirming details of the open homes as well as information about the number of hits the property had received from the various web sites (about four I think – maybe more). All of this was very helpful and kept us up to date with progress. During the whole process Looie and Jim remained helpful, and confident that the property would sell, and at the estimated value. How right they were! When the agreement was being drawn up, we valued their negotiating skills, and it was a relatively quick and painless process. Once the property had been sold, and we were looking for our next house, both Looie and Jim (esp. Jim) again stepped up to the mark with helpful advice, and by sending us details a of properties being listed by Harcourt’s, in the area we were looking, and which meet our criteria. Unfortunately they did not find the house we eventually bought, however it was not through want of trying. We both think very highly of Looie and Jim and would strongly recommend them to anyone wanting experienced and highly capable agents to sell their property.

We can't thank thank her enough for the support and guidance Looie provided us in the sale of our home. She was professional and knowledgeable throughout the whole process and was especially supportive in what was sometimes and emotional roller-coaster! We would highly recommend buy or selling a home with Looie and Jim. 


Jason and Kathy Hall 

Looie you have been a joy to work with. For us having fun as a family is very important. As a family we have enjoyed the experience of purchasing this property and especially loved the way you have connected with our children over the many times we have met together. Thanks for your communication over this time, thanks for feeding our kids while we met in your office and for making us feel welcome. We look forward to being "distant" neighbours of yours. 



Gina and Matt 

I write to you to express our thanks and appreciation for your help and professionalism with the purchase of our property at (address withheld).

Your honesty and commitment during the sale and purchase process is much appreciated as you were no doubt aware we were quite cautious clients as this was our first home purchase but your confident advice and attention to detail put us at ease immediately.
We have no hesitation in recommending both you and Harcourts to your future clients and to wish you every success with your chosen career


Philip and Raewyn Thomsen 

Very friendly, honest and enthusiastic.  Looie goes the extra mile for her clients with personal touches which were much appreciated.  Would recommend her and Harcourts to anyone (and have done)

Ian and Michelle Darke 

We contracted Looie James to sell our house in Parakai and were very pleased with the service Looie provided and the results. Looie (and Harcourts Helensville) are very good at acting on behalf of the seller (rather than the buyer) which is not always the case with Real Estate Agents. This was the second home we sold through Harcourts Helensville - so can be confident in that respect. We could sincerely say that we had every confidence that Looie and the team were working on our behalf. Looie struck us as a very warm and sincere person and both sellers and buyers would easily engage with her. We would be happy to recommend the services of Looie James and feel sure that anyone retaining Looie to sell their home would be as happy and satisfied with the outcome as we were. 



Looie took our criteria and found suitable properties in the area we had specified. She then made arrangements for viewing appointments around other scheduled open homes so that we could do all the looking on one day. Looie has great knowledge of the district and she managed to take all the hassle out of doing the research ourselves    

Malcolm and Karen George

We have dealt with many real estate agents over the last few months but have to say Looie stood above the rest. She listened to our needs and came up with many properties that were appropriate to our budget and requirements. Looie is very professional and went out of her way to show us properties and organize viewings that we're at suitable times. Her communication was great and she followed through with phone calls and finding additional information if required. On a whole Looie is honest and sincere, a hard worker and we would have no hesitation in recommending her to anybody else who is looking to buy a house or property
