Jit Govind

Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Hutt City

Jit joined the real estate industry in 1999, at the age of 26, after completing his degree at Massey University in Business Studies majoring in Valuation and Management.  His interest in property was put to work almost immediately after graduating in 1997 designing and re launching a popular restaurant in Petone which he continued to work in until he was approached by a local real estate firm.  In his early days of selling Jit rapidly grew to be a household name in Petone, having lived there for most of his life, he had intimate details of life in Petone.  Aside from his selling, Jit renovated a family property in Petone and then went on to purchase his first home in Atiawa Street in 2000 which was a classic Petone ‘doer upper’, this increased his knowledge of the renovating aspects which claimed to be invaluable with his future sales.

In 2003, Jiggy joined the business and in 2004, they moved to Remax Real Estate, the move was to embrace a more flexible style of business with the ethos that each client is an individual and should be serviced accordingly.  This allowed Jit to grow as a brand becoming a household name throughout Lower Hutt along with further investing in property and a family home.  His achievements not only reached an elite standard locally and nationally but also internationally as one of the top ten real estate agents in Remax internationally.

On a personal note, Jit enjoys spending time with his family, travelling, coaching his son’s cricket team at Petone Cricket club and like most kiwis – supporting our national sports teams especially cricket and rugby.

Jit remains dedicated, continually upgrading and improving his service to his clients to ensure that he delivers a stress free, seamless sale for his clients.


"Great to deal with, kept us informed and managed expectations, very helpful to ensure our property was presented in the best way."

S Dick

"Kept us extremely well informed were honest with his thoughts about the house Worked hard to get the best price they make a great team. Having two people working together makes a big difference e.g you get feedback quicker than you would with just a single person Very professional yet personable and friendly awesome agents knew exactly what they were doing Also being around for a long time helps"

F Christopher

"They both really held our hands through the process. They recommended how we could get the house looking at its best and people that we could use, home stagers, gardeners. It felt really personal to us ... they took time to explain the process, we felt like ours was the number one property they had to sell."

J Sinnet

"Extremely approachable and very professional. Kept us well informed throughout the process and gave us great advice on how to present our home."

S Sua

I have over the years purchased and sold homes here and overseas. Due to work and time commitments I have always used the services of local real estate agencies. These times have always seemed to me to be stressful, complicated and at times overly expensive especially for the services provided. Jit and Jiggy Govind from Leaders realestate were recommended to me by a member of my extended family to assist with the sale of my home in Lower Hutt recently. From our first contact I found Jit and Jiggy and their process management far superior to anything I had previously experienced here or overseas They immediately recognised that communication and industry knowledge are key ,add to that professionalism , personality, honesty, humour and integrity and we had the base of a great process, relationship and what proved to be a successful outcome. I unreservedly and without hesitation recommend Jit and Jiggy Govind to anybody who is contemplating acquiring the services of a realtor.


Hindsight is a powerful thing, and lately we've been reflecting on the numerous requests we made of Jit and Jiggy prior to listing our home for sale. We'd poured hours of time and energy into making that the best family home we could, and naturally we wanted the best return possible. To their credit, Jit and Jiggy challenged us by providing some plausible scenarios that could unfold and suggestions of what we could do to improve the chances of that happening - ultimately their advice was bang on. By putting our very best foot forward, we increased the chance of the best result. However, more than the advice itself, it was the way that Jit and Jiggy engaged us, challenged us, and ultimately supported our decisions that made the real difference - by the time it came to listing our home, we felt like we were one team. Jit's style in engaging vendors is perfect - he's a great listener, he recognised what was most important to us, and he challenged us when he thought we needed to think broader. Jiggy is the ultimate conductor - when it came to marketing and listing our home, Jiggy was a dynamo. She'd thought of every last detail and made the whole process run like clockwork. But not only was she super-organised, she was lovely to deal with also. Ultimately, Jit and Jiggy definitely helped us to make our home present the best that it could, and they created an enormous amount of interest which got it sold for a great result. We can't thank Jit and Jiggy and the Leaders team enough, and we'll certainly recommend them to any of our friends or family looking to list.
