I’ve been involved in real estate in the Banks Peninsula area since 1987. In that time it’s fair to say I’ve experienced everything the market has to offer – booms and busts, financial crises, varying trends and even a major natural disaster in the region! The ability to adapt and evolve to meet the demands of both the ever changing market, and the needs of my clients, has ensured I’ve generated results for them in all these environments. A fully-qualified member of the Associate Real Estate Institute of New Zealand (AREINZ), my time spent as a franchise owner provided me with a unique insight in to virtually every aspect of the industry; not only working with buyers and sellers but also holiday home letting. This experience and drawing on my unrelenting passion for this spectacular part of the country enables me to help people make their real estate dreams a reality!
