Len Pemberton - Professionals
Welcome to my profile page. My real estate experience started way back in 1978, when I still resided in Auckland.
As a young salesperson, I spent some months working for Bayleys Real Estate, Papatoetoe, South Auckland.
This experience whet my 'appetite' for real estate, however, for some years, I worked as a commercial traveller.
mainly as a national rep for various companies, as with Autocrat Sanyo, selling both 'brown' and 'white' goods
to retailers and then Commercial Electronics--hospitality products, such as juke boxes and bar equipment.
I might mention, that in those years between the 1980's, through to mid the 1990's, I sold farm equipment, sold
new cars, had involvement in a motel business in the King Country and eventually came to settle in the BOP
and Rotorua, Where I met and married my second wife Bronnie.
At the end of 1994. I sat my certificate in Real Estate and joined the Realty Group--Harveys then Eves Realty.
Back into an industry that had always attracted me--it's a people business!
The Market slowed in 2001. Bronnie and I were offered a contract to travel to Christchurch. Once again outside
the Real Estate Industry as a salesperson, however, this new position involved selling directly to the agencies
in Canterbury Real Estate. The company I worked for paid a retainer and commission on sales--after 10
short weeks the Australian parent closed their NZ operation!!
I was fortunate to find a sales position with SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY LIMITED and eventually was promoted
to branch management and a share holder. By 2010, Bronnie and I sold our shares and returned to Rotorua
I sat my full real estate license in 2010 and have successfully worked for McDowell Real Estate Limited
Licensed Real Estate Agent REAA 2008 since--see my profile on the McDowell website.
