I make no secret of the fact I believe Dunedin’s southern most suburbs are the pick of the city.

I’m a little biased, having lived in Fairfield and its surrounding suburbs for the past 35 years. But I know a good spot when I see it.

It’s been 21 years since I became a property consultant. Along with Fairfield, I also market property in Mosgiel, Abbotsford and Green Island – along with the occasional property in Dunedin itself.

Buying and selling property is one of the most important decisions people make. For most, it’s a home – a place to retreat to each night, to sit at the dining table and help children with their homework, to rest and recharge.

After nearly two decades, it’s still a buzz, when you make a perfect match and see a buyer or seller content with the sales process and settling into a new home.
