Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Howick
Lumi Sprague loves a challenge, especially when that challenge means a client’s real estate goals become reality.
With a background in teaching and international relations in her native Romania, Lumi fell in love with Kiwis' love of real estate when she jumped on the plane all by herself and made New Zealand home.
In 2013, Lumi took another leap of faith and, after gaining her real estate licence while working full time and being the main carer for her young son, she quit her job to follow her dream. With no family in New Zealand to support her and with plenty of setbacks and knockbacks on the way, Lumi had a bumpy ride for a while, but her tenacity and dogged determination kept her going through the toughest times.
Lumi offers her clients more than real estate experience and expertise. She brings them her energy, her enthusiasm, her focus and her beliefs about success. She is convinced that when you start with a positive idea or goal and consistently feed it positive energy, it will become a reality.
Lumi adopts her clients' wants as her own, then channels her drive to win into fulfilling those desires.
She not only explains the buying or selling process in detail, she stays in close communication with them, keeping them informed, letting them know that she is always working toward their best interests and giving them reassurance and faith that together they can and will overcome all roadblocks. Lumi strives to create long-term relationships based on trust, support and the ultimate in customer service.
When she is not working hard for her clients, Lumi enjoys pounding the pavement, off road bike riding, reading and exploring Auckland and its beautiful surroundings.
For a local agent who will leave no stone unturned, call Lumi in confidence and you will see real results.
Although the purchase of our property did not run as smoothly as we would have hoped, Lumi kept us informed throughout the whole process with regular updates and assurance that matters were being addressed. Her positive and friendly manner and excellent communication were greatly appreciated and made the experience more bearable.

"Lumi was lovely to deal with. She is very friendly and was always happy to help with anything. She handled everything well, including a difficult situation that had arisen. She was happy to look into things and follow up on things if she wasn't sure, and got back to me in a timely manner. I will definitely refer Lumi to anyone I know of that might have real estate needs. She has been great! Thanks for everything, Lumi!"
"I have really appreciated the way in which you have dealt with me in relation to the purchase of the property from the time of the initial viewing, through the negotiating process and through to settlement and indeed the post settlement period. You have a very attentive and client focused approach which has made the process very easy. You have been punctual, reliable and proactive and all of that has fed into making the purchase of my house move as easy and relaxed as possible. I really appreciate your efforts."
"Lumi is an amazing real estate agent! She was extremely patient with us and never stopped helping us through the journey of searching for the perfect home. She will always go the extra mile and we thank her for all the effort she has done for us."
"Lumi acted as a buyer's agent for us when we were buying a new home in the Eastern Suburbs of Auckland. She was incredibly helpful, and nothing was too hard for her. She arranged house viewings, and worked with the agents who were selling the houses. When things got difficult, such as not getting the house we chose at auction, she didn't hesitate, but got straight onto finding the next house. Her communication was superb, and she always acted instantly with no delays. She was positive and supportive and kept us going through the hard times. I would fully recommend Lumi, either as a selling or buying agent."
