My venture into Real Estate started in 1998 with my first house purchase, the beginning of a healthy property portfolio. I have a genuine passion for helping people achieve their Real Estate goals. Tall Poppy has a proud reputation built on Quality Service, Professionalism, Integrity and strong principles that I also live by.
I believe in four values to be successful in life:
• Honesty • Hard work
• Trust • Absolute transparent communication.
In using these values and outstanding people skills, I strive to give clients the highest level of service, adding value to their property and providing the foundation for the best possible result.
I consciously work with a high level of integrity combined with a “make it happen” approach to all service and client requests.
I began my working career in the New Zealand Army, where I spent 9 years. I have played a lot of sport, in particular rugby and was fortunate enough to play in 7 countries.
Before I became a real estate salesperson, I spent 16 years in the New Zealand Dairy Industry (Fonterra), 10 years in the management and leadership team. Having a military background with excellent systems and discipline, complemented with management and leadership skills, I will add value to your Real Estate transaction.
I am married to Felicity and we have three wonderful children. Felicity is a successful secondary school teacher with over 25 years teaching experience, 5 of which at Inglewood High School. We are heavily involved in the East End Surf Club and NPGHS sports.
If you would like assistance in any Real Estate matter, with a smooth, transparent and fun experience give me, Darrell Paterson a call.
