James Leslie

Director, Connoisseur of fine business socks.

James started HUDSON365 in January 2019.


At that point he could see that there was a gap in the Real Estate industry. A need for something different in the market. A change. What was created is an agency that doesn’t act or talk like any other. Experienced in the high-stakes real estate game and with a forward thinking approach, he’s attempting to push the boundaries through a tailored campaign for each individual property.


“No matter how much tech we have in the world, we still need to ensure that there’s a personal feel to each deal. It’s us genuinely wanting the best for the people that we are working for.”

After all that he’s a self confessed perfectionist, a family man, a lover of Coco-Pops and a nerd with spreadsheets. What a combo.

Annouka Barr

Executive Assistant, Table Tennis wizard.

Annouka is different. And we aren’t talking about ‘weird’ different, just not your typical real estate superstar. She’s clinical, yet personable and an extremely safe pair of hands to see you through the process.


With a level of efficiency that we think is unrivalled, ‘Nouk’ is the perfect mix of fun and professionalism that suits the H365 clientele beautifully.


If you ever need to get on her good side, she’ll take a long black coffee with a dash of milk or a nice chilled Pinot Grigio. How fancy.

Simone Leslie

Co-Founder, Green Thumb.

Simone. How does she put up with James? We don’t know either. She has been an integral part of the unique direction that Hudson365 has taken.


A creative mind that thinks about maintaining a sense of style in everything that’s done, even the small stuff. Simone’s voice is that one that chimes in just at the right time, and with a clear motive to keep us at the highest level possible.


There’s one big problem with Simone that’s not often talked about. Her obsession with plants. From Day 1 there was a lot of greenery introduced into the office. James has tried to stop it… he failed.

Hudson Leslie

CEO, Colouring in specialist.

The face behind the name. Hudson. This kid inspires us to make better decisions, to create a legacy that he will be proud of and to chase happiness over all else.


In his spare time he likes to skateboard, read books about space and collect foxes (the soft toy kind, not the real ones that aren’t allowed in Tasmania).


He also has set firm instructions that the office fridge always has an unlimited supply of fruit boxes. Sounds like a hard taskmaster.

Jazz and Tim Upton


These absolute legends (of Moon Cheese Studio) joined the H365 collective in 2020 and boy are they the coolest. From brand direction to meetings that can’t start without gin, Jazz and Tim are now embedded in the family. And once you’re in… you never get out.


With their genius well and truly on display on all the platforms, the evolution of the brand and the creative path forward is as safe as houses (see what we did there).

Ella Leslie


This adorable goofball has the most important job in the whole office. She’s in charge of keeping the happiness levels at maximum while the Agency goes through it’s day-to-day workings. 


She enjoys long walks on the beach, in the forest…. or anywhere really. Ella’s favourite food is Pumpkin mash. Yep, she’s a weird one.
