Your home is your biggest and most precious asset. When it comes to entrusting someone to market it and sell it, you need to be certain that it’s in good hands – and there are few real estate professionals that have the depth of experience and the marketing and negotiation skills of Julie Shand.
Julie started selling real estate on Auckland’s North Shore back in 2014. Before that, she spent five years selling property in Hawkes’ Bay, so it’s fair to say, she has a wealth of knowledge of how this industry works – and that is vital in today’s market. Add to this, 16 years of legal experience, plus a thorough understanding of housing construction typologies, past and present, and you have an unbeatable package.
An intelligent marketing strategist with exceptional negotiating skills, Julie has been one of the North Shore’s top-ranked real estate professionals for many years, and she puts this success down to one thing – hard work.
“Anyone who knows me knows that I have a huge drive for achieving the best I can, and ensuring my clients are the number one priority by going over and above to get a result for them,” she says.
Julie listens carefully to her vendors, building a strong rapport by offering solid advice and giving honest feedback throughout the sales process. Good communication is hugely important, she says.
“My goal is to take the load off my clients, by making the whole sales process as stress free and as enjoyable for them as possible. It’s all about trust. And trust comes from experience.”
Having lived in the area for almost ten years, Julie knows the lower North Shore very well. She is liked and well respected within her neighbourhood and does an immense amount for her local community, having been a proud sponsor of Birkenhead Primary School and, more recently, Northcote Point Community Crèche. Currently, she sponsors tournaments and events at the Northcote Lawn Tennis Club. “I look after the community well – I do a lot of sponsorship work. Community is important to me – it’s so cool to give back,” she says.
