James Haggerty joined New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty in 2015 after an extended period in the commercial real estate market in Napier. He brings with him more than 30 years’ experience in 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 highly professional, able to effectively communicate with a wide range of people and most importantly results orientated. According to James “Sotheby’s International Realty is an outstanding real estate brand to work with as it brings a number of additional benefits to vendors, including its international reach and in this respect it is unrivalled by any other real estate company.”

To be involved in residential sales at the premium end of market has an inherent appeal to James. He appreciates the opportunity to focus on a small, select number of properties at any one time ensuring that each client obtains the very best result possible.

James’ principal focus is on residential sales in the Napier area, with particular emphasis on the Napier Hill, Ahuriri and Westshore.


"James just made the whole sale process so easy and without any stress to us. We were very happy with the result so much so we recommended him to a friend in the neighbourhood where he achieved a similar result."
