I have spent more than 30 years in the IT industry, nearly half of that in large corporate service management roles, ensuring that clients needs and expectations were met or exceeded. I see Real Estate as very much a service industry where an agent should build strong, lasting relationships with clients based on mutual trust, honesty and shared goals.
I am very proud to call myself a Kumeu local, having moved to a lifestyle block more than 13 years ago. During that time I have been actively involved with the Kumeu Small Landowners Association (a group offering knowledge and support for small block owners) filling many roles from committee member and am currently both President and Editor.
My own transition from ‘townie’ to ‘blockie’ was a steep learning curve and I am sure to provide valuable guidance for others on a similar journey.
I am a volunteer patroller with the Nor-west Community Patrol, a group of more than fifty volunteers help to provide additional ‘eyes and ears’ for the local police. I have been a motorsport competitor in both track and Targa rally events and retain an active interest in both motorsport and classic cars.
Being able to work and live in a community that I love was a big motivation for me to enter the Real Estate industry. My approach to Real Estate is quite simple ... “to treat others how I like to be treated myself”. This philosophy is frequently overlooked, particularly when contracts and money are involved, but it is a principle that has proved successful throughout my career and one that will remain as my guide.
I am writing to express my sincere gratitude for the quality time and effort that you put in to achieving the successful sale of my Kumeu property.
I felt very professionally guided and supported throughout the entire process. I have no doubts that my best interests were of the utmost importance to you and the team at Austar Realty and that II was always very well informed when any decisions had to be made.
Your dedication to me ‘your customer’ the Open homes and following up made for an enjoyable and painless selling experience.
“Selling a house is one of the most stressful things you can do.”
NOT if you use Glyn Taylor, Len Day and the Austar Team at L.J. Hooker Hobsonville.
Your sincerely, Nick
