"Whether a home is an apartment, a cottage or a mansion, our strong attachment to it can be explained by the fact that it is our territory, a place in which we feel we belong.”
It is these sentiments that endear Paula to the Real Estate Industry.
A persons home is often their most valuable asset, so Paula believes that those people who entrust her with the task of selling their home, have the right to expect a high level of service from a true professional.
Quality is never an accident. It is always a result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution.
Having been involved in millions of dollars worth of real estate transactions in New Plymouth, Paula has proven experience in the local market.
She enjoys being part of a highly professional and trained organisation, and having access to state of the art technology.
When not busy working in Real Estate, Paula loves spending time with her four adult children. She also relaxes by cooking, gardening and decorating her own home. Or there is a strong possibility you will find her walking along the beach or indulging in a coffee at a local café.

Some of my happy clients

After 34 years living in the same home selling was a new experience. We anticipated problems but Jack brought solutions. His advice in the early stages was followed and his negotiating ability as we progressed towards a sale was just great with continual follow ups. Anyone thinking of selling or buying really should call Jack and Paula as I am sure that the buyers were just as happy as we are. Sold in 2 weeks for just about the price we wanted. Good on you, Jack and Paula
