About Jim Broadbent
#2 Sales Partnership, Northland Region, to end March 2019
Jim Broadbent & Associate Tess Dixon
With over 40 years of continuous real estate sales experience I have an extensive background working with auctions, tenders, promotions, mortgagee/high court sales and property development in the residential/lifestyle and rural sectors. I fully understand that selling real estate today requires a genuine commitment to professionalism, customer service and industry knowledge as well as outstanding marketing and negotiating skills.
My selling career began in Kerikeri working for the family firm "Broadbent Real Estate". I relocated to Auckland and joined the top performing team at Barfoot & Thompson Mission Bay. I spent 16 happy years there, before returning to Kerikeri where I have enjoyed my time with the branch since it opened, working as both a salesperson and branch manager.
I recently returned to the Bay of Islands to join Jim Broadbent at the Kerikeri branch where I started my real estate career eight years ago after being accepted into Barfoot & Thompson's first "Elite Salesperson" programme. I spent three years with the Kerikeri branch before relocating to Auckland and expanding my horizons, with work in the online real estate sector as a salesperson and as a personal assistant to one of Meadowbank's top salesperson's at both Barfoot & Thompson and Ray White Remuera.
My background is in the film industry where I worked in the production department on a variety of TVC's as well as a feature film. I have also worked in an audio production role and as a merchandiser. My strengths and skillset is reflected in my current role working alongside Jim - with a strong focus on co-ordination, communication and in the marketing/advertising areas.
