Selma Peters excels in her vocation as a Real Estate person, she thoroughly enjoys helping people find the dream lifestyle and home they want. Energetic and enthusiastic, Selma, who was an accounts administrator for the former Continental Airlines head office in Auckland remembers clearly the day, in the late 1990s, that she and all the other employees of the airline were told it was closing its doors. This was perhaps the catalyst to a major professional turning point for her. She decided to take control of her life and went into real estate.
Selma found she had a talent for the job when she started working for Auckland real estate couple Mike and Irene Green at their Remuera/Epsom Harcourts office – one of nine they owned at the time.
The Greens didn’t usually take on inexperienced people but they took a punt on Selma and it certainly paid off, with the working relationship becoming a very rewarding one for many years. The challenge and rewarding results of real estate negotiation is in Selma’s blood. Maximise Real Estate identified Selma as having the same high values as the directors and asked her to join their company. It is also obvious that Selma has made an impeccable impression and name for herself in the real estate world, both at regional and national levels. During previous sales years, she has been recognized for being in the top five sales positions in Auckland and the Northern Region. In her first year, she achieved the prestigious Rookie of the Year award for Harcourts (Auckland wide) and she was recognized for being in the New Zealand Herald top 20 sales consultants list three years in a row.
Her large portfolio of references, accolades, achievement certificate’s and testimonials are a credit to her hard work over the years. Clients and lawyers that she has worked with describe Selma as:
• ruthlessly honest
• having integrity
• always having a plan of action
• informative and ready to give feedback on all aspects of sales from start to finish
• presenting the best offers to clients
• a true professional
• highly trusted
…and the list goes on.
