I am originally from South Africa and in 1990 I met this wonderful Kiwi bloke Paul. We married in 1995 and eventually decided that New Zealand was where we would like to bring up our children. We relocated to my husband's hometown in South Auckland in 2002 where my husband joined Barfoot & Thompson. With our two darling sons I started learning the kiwi culture and realised how important community is and just loved the Kiwi way. I was lucky enough to be a stay-at-home mum bringing up my boys in the wonderful neighbourhood of Wattle Downs. I began to get involved with several community organisations which I soon recognised were an essential part of keeping our neighbourhood safe and enhancing the beauty around us.
I am a qualified hotelier having completed the Hotel School with three years study. I worked in the industry and travelled extensively in South Africa. I believe I have a down-to-earth nature and my people skills are essential to any real estate transaction. I joined Barfoot & Thompson Manurewa in 2005, and quickly realised that I loved the real estate business. I have become a highly-respected and sought-after salesperson and have been lucky enough to achieve many excellence awards over the past 10 years.
I specialise in marketing and selling properties in the Manurewa and Wattle Downs area. I am actively involved in the community and stand as Vice Chairperson of the local Residents Association. I am also a great support for the local residents, businesses and schools, getting involved in all the galas, tree plantings and I head up the local newsletter for the Wattle Downs area. I am also involved in sponsoring the local golf club.
With an outstanding amount of experience behind me, I have a strong referral client base and feel I have the unique ability to bring purchaser and vendor together to create the perfect real estate transaction.
