Maureen Collins - Osborne's
Having been born and raised in Waiuku, I moved to Clarks Beach in 1990, after my husband and I got married and purchased our first home.
Mr prior work experience was with the BNZ in Waiuku and NZ Steel at Glenbrook, where I was involved in various customer service roles and also dealt with large financial transactions. After the usual OE in my early twenties, marriage in the ‘90s and a stay at home period to have children, I decided it was time to re-enter the work force. An opportunity arose in the early 2000s to assist local real estate agent Kim-Maree Osborne as a PA. This led inevitably to me obtaining my real estate licence and experiencing my first sale in 2006. I have enjoyed selling property in the Clarks Beach area ever since, having experienced the highs and lows that come with the real estate cycle. With over $45 million dollars of sales, my clients can be assured they are getting an experienced sales person with extensive local knowledge.
I believe my customers are entitled to a professional, friendly but efficient approach, when it comes to the sale of their home and I strive to make the process as stress free and streamlined as possible. My goal is to successfully match people with property.

Maureen is very approachable, down to earth and friendly plus very knowledgeable about the area we bought in, Clarks Beach.

I would highly recommend Maureen as an Agent and would have no hesitation in using her again.
