Fresh and full of energy, my venture into real estate is a culmination of a long held passion for property and a love of working with people.
Leaving behind a successful career in travel and aviation and experience in sales and marketing, I decided to start living the dream. Could there be a better job in the world than selling homes in this beautiful place?
My experience gives me the edge when it comes to developing marketing plans that command attention, and my experience in travel and sales means I'm comfortable working with a wide range of people and situations. I understand how to use the latest technology too, and I've got excellent analytical skills, all of which leads to results that surpass your expectations.
I'm a people person who treasures her family and friends, and I get so much enjoyment out of meeting new people and forming new friendships. I play an active role in the community as a member of the local business association and through my volunteer work helping the local school and social organisations. My husband and I foster kids too, which is a great source of pride for us.
Whangarei and Hikurangi are lovely warm and safe communities with hard working people. The nature here is beyond beautiful and the climate is the envy of my family and friends back home in Latvia, EU.
Last but not least, I hold an MAA - University of Latvia, as well as an EMBA - Stockholm School of Economics (Riga).
You can't beat the warmth of a local with the expertise of a professional. So give me a call today and let's make your property dreams a reality.
"Julia Gladcenko has been an absolute dream to deal with. If you could clone her, you should! From the minute we met I knew we were in safe hands and I would love to work with Julia and Barfoot & Thompson again. The whole process was a pleasure.
I would highly recommend the Whangarei office of Barfoot & Thompson, especially Julia Gladcenko. From the first interaction I knew Julia would have our best interests at hand. Julia was so professional, yet caring, and went out of her way to make sure the transaction concluded in the most efficient manner. I would love to deal with Julia and the Barfoot & Thompson team again. They made a particularly stressful situation very straightforward, and I have no hesitation in recommending Julia and the team."
Julia. Fantastic work and we really appreciate the effort regarding the sale of our house in Maunu. Without you it would have been very difficult to sell so quickly. The care and attention was exceptional.Sue and Brian
Julia. My son and I would like to thank you so much for everything you did to assist us in purchasing our forever house in Whangarei. As we didn't live in the area I thought it would be a challenge, however your professionalism, amazing communication via phone and email didn't make this an issue. Your understanding and knowledge of the Whangarei area and what we wanted to achieve was just amazing. We are so happy with the house we bought in the area I so wanted. I am grateful too for the guidance about my son's school. I have a very happy pre-teen. Julia, thank you again I couldn't recommend you more highly to anyone that needs a real estate professional in Whangarei. You will always be welcome at our new home.

Julia Gladcenko was our real estate agent whom we contracted to sell our home at Whangarei Heads Road. Julia has a friendly disposition and confident manner. She is very dedicated - always providing regular and accurate feedback, both from prospective customers' point of view and the marketplace in general. She is sincere and had a very good working relationship with her colleagues, which in our case proved to be beneficial. We would have no hesitation in utilizing her services again in the future.
Julia helped us to find and buy our first investment property recently and we think she did a wonderful job! Before working with her we had had a very stressful attempt at buying a property, which failed. A friend of ours has suggested to look at properties in Whangarei and introduced us to Julia. Julia selected several suitable properties within our price range for us to view right away, arranged private viewings, supplied information and local insights, went to the local Council and did everything imaginable to ensure a smooth and stress less experience. We live in Auckland, so for us it was especially important to have a local agent that we can trust.
If you are looking for a very professional, efficient and caring real estate agent, we can highly recommend Julia to any vendor or buyer in the market!
Julia was so relatable and kind in her approach to our needs as vendors. She understood our situation, kept us well informed throughout and offered honest advice that was extremely helpful. She went out of her way to make appointments and the whole selling process easy for us with a small toddler. We would definitely use Barfoot & Thompson again for selling or buying a property and would highly recommend Julia Gladcenko.Joshua & Nina Paget
