"James Haggerty has joined New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty after working for Bayleys Commercial in Napier. He brings with him more than 30 years’ experience in senior marketing as well as business ownership, adding an impressive skill set to his sales role.
Throughout his career, James has built a reputation for being professional, dependable and able to communicate with a wide range of people. With a significant number of major commercial leasing transactions to his credit, he has decided the time is right to change to selling solely real estate. To be involved in residential sales at the premium end of market, according to James, has “an inherent appeal as well the opportunity to focus on a small, select number of properties at any one time to ensure that each client and each property gets the attention they deserve.”
“I chose to join NZ Sotheby’s International Realty because it is a company with an extremely strong brand, good marketing programmes and highly professional staff. In the four years since starting in Hawke’s Bay it has already established a very strong position at the higher end of the residential market.”
According to James “the key goal in any successful real estate sale is to match the property to the prospective buyer pool. To achieve this result calls for a good knowledge of the property and the current real estate market. Understanding the prospective buyers’ requirements and motivation is also key to achieving a successful outcome.”
James’ principal focus is on residential sales in the Napier area, with particular emphasis on the Napier Hill, Ahuriri and Westshore. He and his is family have been resident for 20 years.
