    Leeann Marriott

    Sales Consultant

    Leeann Marriott’s core values of openness and honesty, dedication and tenacity see her consistently ranked among Harcourts’ top performers. However, her reputation speaks louder than her awards and accolades: after more than 10 years with Harcourts Gold, the vast majority of her clients are repeat business and referrals. Leeann has high expectations and standards and brings a passion for excellence to her career. She has a vast knowledge of Christchurchs’ real estate market including legislation and regulations covering land affected by earthquakes, floods and land contamination. However, where she really excels is in making a connection with her clients and understanding their needs. “It can be an emotional roller coaster in real estate, because peoples homes are their livelihoods as well as their family memories,” says Leeann. Throughout the ups and downs of the market – credit crunch through to earthquakes – Leeann has kept her ranking in the top 20 Harcourts Gold agents, the top 35 (out of 400) Harcourts agents in Canterbury and is often in the top 100 agents in New Zealand. Leeann is a skilled and experienced negotiator who excels at auction, strong marketing campaigns, attention to detail and going the extra mile for her clients. When she’s not working, Leeann’s other passion in life is her family; her commuting husband, two studying children Laura and Nicholas, Maltese Bichon Susie and cat Charlie. They enjoy travelling together to local hot spots as well as exotic overseas locations in Africa and Europe when they have vacation time. Truely a Cantabrian at heart, she always finds time to support local arts and philanthropic endeavors, such as chairing Rangi Ruru’s Market Day committee, for which she received this public commendation from Rangi Ruru School principal Julie Moor; “This was a great event that raised over $33,000 for sports courts and without the work that Leeann put into it, it simply wouldn’t have happened.”
