Robert Higgins

Project Planning and Marketing

Rob is head of the highly successful Project Planning and Marketing department at LJ Hooker Darwin and Palmerston. The department’s business model is to be pro-active and make projects happen rather than sit back and wait to market the end product. This model also allows Rob to participate in the future look and feel of the greater Darwin area which he feels passionately about.

The scope of work Rob completes on a regular basis includes all facets of project development and includes but not limited to;

Developer relations

Maintain relationships with key stakeholders in the development field. Rob uses his expansive network of development related people to put together the appropriate people and property to get the maximum result for all parties involved.


Work with developers to ensure that the property that is being proposed has a place in the market, and to determine what the market may be prepared to pay for that property. This process assists in increasing the efficiency of the marketing period and reduces the time on market for off the plan stock


Using his experience in the field, Rob is able to construct fully comprehensive marketing campaigns across all media types and regularly delivers those campaigns under budget. His understanding of buyer behaviour and electronic media enables him to target a specific buyer type to quickly advance the marketing process.

Joint Venture Opportunities

Robs network includes a number of small to large financiers and equity firms looking to invest in development projects. This network has enabled Rob to put together developments where normal financing methods made the project un-viable.

Jen & Rob achieved outstanding results in a difficult market. While the house itself was a good one, Jen & Rob helped us get more than expected for it.

Jude Long

It gives us great pleasure to recommend both Jen and Rob from LJHooker. We recently purchased a property in Bellamack. They made the process so easy considering we did not reside in Darwin at the time. Any questions, queries or issues were answered or rectified without any problems. Both Rob and Jen went above and beyond to ensure our new home was perfect and the transition was effortless. I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you so much for making it so easy and pleasurable.

I really appreciated the excellent client orientation by LJ Hooker personnel, in particular towards the end of the settlement. Robert is very dedicated and helpful during the inspection of the property explained all corrective measures in detail. I appreciated the politeness and knowledge of Rob


I was beyond impressed with Rob from the first phone call and i completely trusted him. The market information he provided me with when i was looking around for agents was key to me selecting LJ Hooker to sell my property. While the house was on the market, Rob kept me so informed with updates every week on home opens, potential buyers and other properties for sale/sold in the area. Super professional and friendly.


Rob went above and beyond to make my first home purchase a smooth one. I highly recommend him to anyone. Even after the purchase had settled and Rob did not need to assist me in any way he still made himself available and even helped me when I had issues with jacana energy being unable to access the meter box to change the power over to my name. He went through so much trouble to contact the neighbors to find the keys and speak with the body Corp chairperson to resolve my problem. being on my own this was invaluable and something that puts him apart from other agents. Darwin is very much a word of mouth community and Rob will have earned himself a reputation as an excellent real estate agent. This also then reflects on the company he works for.
