Luke Nobilo brings to New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty drive and determination to create the best possible outcomes for his clients. He specialises in helping his clients move on with their lives.

After a career in professional golf, Luke understands that hard work and commitment is the essence of creating success. Having spent many years in the golf industry, more recently as the Golf instructor at the Mount Maunganui Golf Club, he has developed a skill set well suited for the real estate industry.

Luke prides himself on his professional yet calm and easy-going approach to life and more importantly, to his real estate transactions. Luke’s ability to quickly put people at ease and earn their respect is critical when it comes to ensuring that his clients get the best possible outcome and achieve their goals. His honest approach has enabled clients to form a solid level of trust – the underlying core of successful real estate.

Luke has created a large network of connections within the local community, and he continues to utilise this network to produce strong real estate results.

To Luke, Real Estate is not all about selling houses, it is about managing relationships and expectations. Its about helping people achieve a desired outcome. Any agent is an agent of change, Luke sees his role is helping people move from where they currently are to where they want to be.

Luke believes paramount in his business is listening to his clients and doing what he says he will.

“I bring a professional, hardworking yet easy going approach to real estate and treat people how I expect to be treated. I am a quick thinker and can deal with high-stress situations quickly and calmly”.

Planning is critical for Luke, both short term and long term. “Not knowing where you are headed makes it's hard to get there. I stay motivated by continually striving to produce the best outcome for clients”.

Luke lives with his fiancé Cherie and their two boys, in Mount Maunganui. He enjoys the outdoors lifestyle of the Bay of Plenty - playing golf and surfing when time allows is what keeps Luke energised.


“During 2019 we marketed our home with two local companies with no joy and were feeling very disheartened with the sales process. The highlight of 2020 for us was certainly meeting and entering into an agreement with Richard Laery of New Zealand ...Sotheby’s International Realty. We chose Sotheby’s for their capacity to reach a wider audience through their national and international marketing platforms. This proved highly successful in a short time frame of seven weeks including a marketing campaign. The marketing of our Papamoa property commenced in January 2020. On expert advice by Richard and Luke, we had our house staged which had a profound impact on the marketing of our home. We received multiple offers including one from outside the region, with Richard and Luke’s expertise and skills coming into play a successful offer from a young family was accepted late February. Seven weeks from going to market until the contract was signed and delivered was a huge achievement in our opinion and we attribute this achievement to the highly professional and extremely committed performance of our dedicated agents at Sotheby’s. Aside to the above, Sotheby’s was more expensive than the local operators. However, the service, marketing and whole experience was something that we wished we had received initially. We only wish we had contacted Sotheby’s first and eliminated the stress that overwhelmed us during 2019”.
