After six successful years gaining valuable industry experience at two of New Zealand’s largest real-estate companies, Kate has stepped away to establish a bespoke agency that offers specialised services in residential property sales and residential project marketing.

From a young age, Kate learned many valuable lessons from her developer and project manager father. This grounding gave Kate an early understanding of the everyday challenges faced by developers. She carries this knowledge with her and draws on it in various aspects of her residential project marketing service.

After graduating from Victoria University with a Commerce degree in Marketing and Management, Kate turned her focus to the property industry, and it didn’t take long for her to ‘catch the property bug.’

Immediately after completing her studies, Kate joined the team at the largest real-estate firm in New Zealand’s capital city and it was here she met Origin’s principal officer, Gareth Robins, who brings with him 11 years of real estate industry experience.

Chasing an opportunity to gain experience in residential developments, Kate moved back to Queenstown to join the Bullendale development team and exclusively sold over 60 residential units and was relied upon to offer valuable insight surrounding how to position the product mix, ultimately under-pinning the success of the development.

It was from this experience and the success of Bullendale that Kate recognised the true benefits of offering a full-spectrum residential project marketing service and from here, Origin Projects and Property were born.
