About Me

Looie James - Team Leader, Marketer and Negotiator

Dynamic go-getter Looie James has embarked on a career as a sales professional with Harcourts, offering her hugely impressive sales skills to help real estate clients in the Waitoki, Kaukapakapa, Dairy Flat and Wainui areas. With almost super-human energy, the mother of seven is a classic multi-tasker who has been self-employed running several of her own businesses for the past 15 years.

Switching to real estate seemed an obvious move for Looie. Not only does she have a track record that proves she’s an adept negotiator but  as a creative businessperson, she understands how to help sellers maximise the value of their property through superb marketing and presentation.

Looie has an assured sense of confidence in the business arena. Nothing phases her and she loves a challenge. Experience has taught her when to be diplomatic but she has a clear vision of what it takes to get a job done. So she is not afraid to cut to the chase to ensure her seller’s properties are presented at their very best to give them the competitive advantage required.

Her aim is to isolate factors that are important so she can effectively match the right buyers to the right property with as little fuss as possible. Drawing on her breadth of sales experience, Looie knows how to identify specific niche audiences that will respond to her promotions. Creative strategies result in innovative campaigns that achieve high exposure to set each property apart.

For ten years now she has enjoyed living on lifestyle blocks in Kaukapakapa and Wainui. Immersed in the rural lifestyle, she has a clear understanding of farms, what makes farmers tick and the rural lifestyle landscape. Through the many fund-raising and community activities she is involved in, she has cultivated an extensive network of young and old. For Looie, it has always been people first. She values relationships above all else and likes to do things the right way.

Looie is delighted to have the opportunity to tap into her well-established connections to help you with your property requirements. She would love the chance to appraise your property if you’re considering putting it on the market. Anyone who knows Looie will tell you she is exceptionally trustworthy and reliable. So it is with absolute confidence that you can refer her to your neighbours, friends and family should they be looking to move on. For an intelligent, hardworking sales consultant with a strong affinity for rural people, Looie James is the obvious choice!
