About Janine

Janine’s attention to detail and organisational skills are an asset to herself and Team Paymani. Janine prides herself on her ability to listen to her clients and connect them with opportunities that best match their needs. After growing up in the Bay of Plenty, Janine attended Waikato University where she gained a degree in Social Science. Moving to Auckland, then Wellington after university, Janine worked in sales and management roles for several nationwide companies. In these roles Janine gained a passion for working with clients to achieve their goals and an understanding of the benefit of planning and communication. Having worked with Babak and his wife for several years, Janine joined Team Paymani in September 2021. She shares the same views as Babak and Tom when it comes to their clients. Selling and/or buying a house can be a vulnerable, overwhelming, yet exciting time for people. It is our role to help them navigate the process and work hard to gain the best outcomes possible for our clients. Janine lives in Hamilton with her husband, and two children. She is proud to call Hamilton home, and proud to be part of team Paymani.

Client Comments

Everyone at Lugtons Real Estate Hamilton that I dealt with was professional, friendly and fought hard to get the best deal they could for me, especially Babak and Janine. Would definitely recommend to others!


"I have known Janine for over 10 years, during this time Janine has proven to be an essential part of my professional life. Through Janine’s keen eye for detail and use of initiative, I have come to rely on her, particularly in times when there is a tight deadline to be met. Janine always goes above and beyond what is required, often completing tasks before I realise it needs doing. Janine is a whizz at looking at the bigger picture and setting up systems to ease the pressure of complex tasks. I highly recommend Janine for supporting people through the often-challenging aspects of buying and selling their homes. She will guide you through each step and nothing is too much trouble."


"Janine was very helpful and honest with us about finding the perfect home within our budget. She went the extra mile and was very proactive in making sure we were well informed. We will always be grateful for her help. We recommend her service, she is amazing."
