Nadia Hay - Ray White
Nadia has been involved in real estate in some shape or form for the past 20 years alongside her husband, Ged. She has bought, sold, and built her own properties, built and managed rental properties, owned and sold commercial properties, been a director on a body corporate, and has been a tenant before building their dream home on a lifestyle block in sunny Mapua. For Nadia, becoming a real estate agent, to help others with their property dreams and needs, was the cherry on top of the cake.
In addition to Nadia’s extensive experience in real estate, she has had a very busy career in public relations and marketing, managing clients from Kawasaki Motors, Shotover Jet, and the Air New Zealand Queenstown Winter Festival, as well as managing Mad Dog River Boarding – their busy adventure tourism business. She left the adventure part – taking tourists down the fast-moving Kawarau River - to Ged – and managed the staff, marketing, advertising, and running of the busy Shotover Street shop.
While living in San Francisco, Nadia was the director of public relations for internet start-ups ranging from the education sector to e-commerce and online pet supplies prior to moving to New Zealand. Upon her arrival, Nadia fulfilled her childhood dream of being in the movies, when she played the body double for hobbit Samwise Gamgee in the first Lord of the Rings movie (she even had to wear a wig and pointy ears).
Whether it’s her infectious enthusiasm and bubbly personality at a listing appointment, her knowledge, and skills at a serious buyer negotiation, or her genuine love of helping people into their dream home, there’s never a dull moment when Nadia’s around!
