A keen interest in people fostered by a nursing background, together with a fascination in homes led me to begin my career in real estate. Equipped with the knowledge and confidence of AREINZ status, I enjoyed three years selling under the Harcourts banner based in Browns Bay. Here I attained regional and national ratings. In 1990 I began a years management which ensured I have an all round grounding in real estate. In 1991 I joined Bayleys Real Estate based in Auckland city and in the following two and a half years benefited greatly by working in a team concentrated on controlled promotion at the top end of the market. This lead me to work with Impact Real Estate on the North shore before joining Barfoot and Thompson in Pukekohe when Warwick and I moved out to our Mangatawhiri and vineyard in 2000.
Now totally focusing on rural and lifestyle property in the Franklin region I am thrilled to be part of the Franklin Real Estate team, a progressive company well established as a successful marketing force in the area. We all live in the district which ensures local knowledge and pride in our chosen location.
I have found that well planned, controlled marketing strategies have ensured my clients sell their properties; not just for a price but in many instances achieving better than their expectations. Since commencing my real estate career in 1987 I have successfully sold in excess of 90% of the properties I have been asked to sell. The same dedication and commitment that earned me a world ranking in masters swimming now works for the Vendors who entrust the sale of what is often their most valuable assed, to my care. I understand the essential need to offer my clients uncompromising levels of service, market knowledge and sales effort whilst tailoring programmes to suit their individual needs.
My work excites me and is highly satisfyling - can I help you?
