Anneke Kawau

Business Owner & Consultant


James & Anneke, with their business support managers Luana & Bridget offer a fresh approach to real estate which will maximise your chance of a great sale.  Their enthusiasm, quality marketing, powerful online presence and fastidious customer service is proving to be a successful formula. 

Both James & Anneke are business co-owners of Ray White Invercargill along with Brendan Mason & Philip Brough.  Their vision and drive for the future and commitment to the industry is evident with their involvement not only within their own brand but also planning and implementing the future direction of Ray White Invercargill.

Anneke holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree majoring in management and marketing.  This has been the backbone to the team's astute delivery in campaigns, relationships and consistent success.  James’ ability to connect with people combined with his exceptional communication skills has meant his switch from Radio to Real Estate has been a great success story.  He’s now the head auctioneer for the company, a role he’s absolutely loving.  This job certainly plays a big part in the success of the Ray White business.  

James & Anneke sit within the top 10% of Ray White agents internationally. Luana Cuckow and Bridget Colyer are the formidable ladies that hold this ship together. Their work behind the scenes in all aspects of the business make them an essential and valued part of the team.  Collectively they work hard, they dream large and they look after every client with great care.

When Anneke is not at work she prioritises her family time with Jason, Rio Opi and Zinzan.  As a family, property ventures are a true passion and often a  hot topic discussed on the home front.  Throw in some fitness and Anneke is content.  

James lives in Rosedale with his wife Nikki and two young children, Scarlett and Otis and believes Invercargill truly is a wonderful place to live and raise a family.  When he finds a gap he enjoys keeping fit, embracing the music culture and is even known to MC Invercargill's best events.

The ‘James & Anneke’ team is on a mission to provide locals with great results. Taking a fresh approach and always striving to be one step ahead. #sellproud
