About James

James Higgie has notched up over 25 years experience in the Wellington real estate market across the residential and commercial sectors.

Having joined Bayleys Wellington in 1996, he originally made his mark in the area of commercial and industrial sales and leasing in the Wellington CBD, Thorndon and Hutt Road areas.

Tenacity is a trademark of James’ approach to business and his longevity in this competitive industry is defined by a ‘never give up’ attitude and being able to ‘think outside the square’.

Where others see problems, he will focus on the positives and strive to find solutions that will maximise a vendors returns. This has resulted in him being involved in some outstanding real estate deals, particularly those that don’t fit the normal mould.

Amongst James’ many successful transactions a number of highlights include:


The Taubmans Paint Factory, Miramar for use as a film studio

Vacant Firth Cement Works, Thorndon for residential development

The Suzanne Aubert Centre (a convent) on Basin Reserve for conversion to student accommodation

The sale of the Tramways Hotel, Newtown 3 times


Wilson & Horton 1500 sqm Newtown

Moore Gallagher 2500 sqm Ngauranga

Europacific 1000 sqm Ngauranga

Connector Systems 1000 sqm Ngauranga
