Running a real estate office as its owner and licensee is a challenge in today’s volatile market, but I thoroughly enjoy the cut and thrust this involves!
I entered into the industry in 1999 with a background of owning and operating various companies, all of which involved selling and dealing with people face to face.
The transition to frontline real estate was a fairly easy one given my background and I found it extremely rewarding listing and selling properties in my own area and dealing with people that in many instances I knew already.
After three years I was offered the chance to manage two of the company’s local branch offices in the Porirua area and shortly after that took up the opportunity to buy a half share in the Paraparaumu Beach office.
Some two years later I took over full ownership of this busy office and have steered it through various brand changes and office refurbishments since. Operating now as a franchise member of the international “Ray White” group, I’m proud of our position as one of the top agencies operating in the greater Kapiti coast area.
Real Estate is all about dealing with people and it takes special skills and training to establish the levels of trust and professionalism that make up a successful agent. I have great pride in the team that work with me in our Paraparaumu Beach office and take personal satisfaction in knowing they are the best in the area.
With a history of over 35 years of looking after local property owners and buyers (and to a greater extent nowadays, those who live elsewhere) our office has a proud history to look back on!
I can confidently recommend our services to anyone looking to sell or buy on the magnificent Kapiti Coast!
