Welcome to the Family – Layne Hughes

The harder you work, the luckier you get

Honest, approachable and hard working sums up our newest Real Estate consultant joining the team in our Harcourts Khandallah office! 

When purchasing a property recently, Layne dealt with a wide range of Real Estate Consultants and thought the role could be something she’d excel at. The day that she decided to look into starting in real estate, she saw that there was a Harcourts careers evening that very night – “it was a sign!”. She attended the evening and loved what she heard. Immediately she began to set the wheels in motion that led her to where she is today. Having bought and sold property in different towns and climates, Laynes adaptability will be an asset to her clients. 

Originating from Hawkes Bay, Layne and her family are now firmly fixed in Wellington. They have spent the past seven years here, so have settled well into the region and its communities. As a ‘Ngaio specialist’, Layne acknowledges the many benefits of the area – the views are amazing, it’s so central, has a great school area, and is close to everything, with a six minute drive to either Johnsonville or the city. She rightfully asks “where else would you like to be?”. If you see her taking her dog for a walk around the hills, be sure to go and say hello!

Previously working in the Driver Testing Industry, Layne was contracted to Waka Kotahi (NZTA). In a regulatory role, people management and connection was hugely important. This unique background offers so many transferable skills that she has now brought into her new line of work. 

She describes her time here so far as inspirational. “Harcourts has a community feel that I didn’t expect. My team has been fantastic, welcoming and sharing their knowledge and expertise.”

Layne says “I love a good yarn, a great coffee and a fabulous pair of shoes!”. Be sure to get in touch if you’re looking for a Khandallah real estate consultant to help you on your property journey.

We love the enthusiasm and expertise that she brings to our team. Driven by her belief that ‘the harder you work, the luckier you get’, we’re excited to see where this Real Estate journey takes her. Welcome on board Layne!
