JULIE DARE has enjoyed Real Estate in Matamata for some seventeen years during which time she has become a much sought after and respected salesperson. Being locally born and bred has ensured that Julie has an in depth knowledge of the town, its properties and the people. Her interest in real estate was ignited many years ago when she and husband Kevin built their first home after which followed some renovating of two homes plus four more new builds. The experience of building, renovating plus buying and selling during this time gave her an invaluable insight to both sides of the fence from her client’s perspective. Julie quickly builds empathy with her clients and being a perfectionist ensures that she provides them with advice and service which is unsurpassed in Matamata. The repeat business which comes her way speaks for itself as do the lovely and complimentary references she has accumulated. In addition the numerous industry awards that Julie has amassed over the years, including getting into the silver and then into the gold club with Harvey’s. These awards are for selling a certain amount of realestate over a 3 month period. In recent times together with her business partner Chris Metcalfe of seven years they have been awarded the High Achievers award for the office for the last 6 years in a row. This is a testament to her hard work and dedication to her career. Specialising in Residential sales along with Sections plus Lifestyle properties Julie has ensured that she has kept right up with the latest Real Estate Authority rules which have become very complex and must be carried out to the letter of the law. Bayleys have developed exceptional real estate programmes and training systems providing expansive knowledge and backup to their network of salespeople in offices throughout New Zealand.

If you would like to know more about this buzzing town which enjoys great shopping, lovely eating places as well as being centrally located call Julie Dare now to benefit from the knowledge and expertise of a much respected agent. CHRISTINE METCALFE commenced her career in real estate over 30 years ago in Te Aroha, and hence has seen many property cycles come and go. But she says the fundamentals do not change regardless of the market. Over the years Christine has been involved in selling mainly residential homes and sections and lifestyle blocks, but also sold businesses, commercial and industrial properties. “A well-presented, strategically-marketed property in the hands of a good agent will sell.” Having set her professional bar high, Christine has enjoyed a successful property career and has been the recipient of many coveted industry awards. “While it is nice to be recognised in this way, personal satisfaction comes from seeing my clients realise their property aspirations whether they are selling or buying. Taking the stress out of the equation – or at the very least, keeping it to a minimum – is my job and having been on both sides of the property fence myself, I think I understand the dynamics well,” says Christine. Now having aligned herself with the Bayleys brand as a member of the Bayleys Matamata team, Christine continues to make deals happen for her clients and keeps involved with her community on other levels as well.
