then re-licensed in 2013 with a focus on Lifestyle property.

New to Team LSB is Rachel Williams, having had a 12-year career as a Speech Therapist, Rachel decided it is time for a change and to follow her interest in real estate. Rachel is originally from the UK and has recently emigrated to New Zealand with her Kiwi husband and young family. The move was a tough decision, but they have immersed themselves in all that Taranaki has to offer and have not looked back.
Since living in New Zealand Rachel and her husband have started a property portfolio and they are hoping to use their knowledge of property development gained in the UK and their keen eye for interior design to transform these properties. Having had first-hand experience of the real estate buying and selling process, Rachel quickly realised that this is where her true passion and skills lie and was therefore thrilled to be offered a position with Team LSB. Rachel has excellent organisation and communication skills with a strong team focus, making her a valuable asset to the team.
