People skills are one of Vikki Kingsley Jones’ biggest strengths. Combined with her strong background and powerful connections she is well placed to assist her clients to altogether outstanding results.
Vikki, born in Wales, was encouraged to migrate to NZ by her father Phil Kingsley Jones and the All Black Legend Jonah Lomu who treated Vikki like a sister. Following a tough time during the yearlong miners’ strike in 1984, with little government support she arrived in New Zealand in the late 90’s as a single parent of three children.
Vikki started her career in NZ working at “Just Water” for Tony Falkenstein in Customer Services navigating her way through to a role as the National Customer Service Manager. Working with her dad and Jonah gave her considerable marketing expertise as she oversaw running Jonah's website and fan mail, arranging TV interviews and adverts and organizing promotional merchandise.
Vikki then moved on to a career as an international flight attendant for Air New Zealand working in Business Class for 14 years. Covid-19 led Vikki to change her career and pursue her lifelong passion for property demonstrating her ability to pivot as required in relation to market forces – another key skill of a great real estate professional.
Vikki has an innate passion for all things property and has worked her way up the property ladder one step at a time and knows first-hand how challenging the current market can be for many through her own purchases and is pleased to be able to offer lots of valuable advice to vendors and purchasers alike.
With an eye for detail Vikki has an ability to see the potential in a home, guiding her vendors as to how they could make subtle changes to command a better sales price and helping purchasers to see how they could make a house their home. Combined with her empathetic and caring nature, Vikki knows how to seamlessly guide her clients through the process of buying and selling. And her stellar connections garnered from her prior careers are of great benefit to her real estate clients.
Vikki and her husband Kevin have recently designed and completed a new build in Beachlands where they are heavily involved with their grandchildren’s activities adding to their impressive network. Their home has even been entered into the prestigious House of the Year competition, so Vikki offers a lot of expertise to her clients regarding the local market in terms of both existing properties and new builds.
