Alison Rudd - Tall Poppy
Down to Earth High Achiever
Alison Rudd found her passion when she began her real estate career several years ago. In Tall Poppy, she also discovered a company whose values aligned with her own.
“Tall Poppy’s culture is based on honesty, transparency and straight talking. They employ sales consultants who demonstrate that they are real people with sound morals and ethics, doing good business in an open friendly way. This completely resonated with me,” she says.
Alison is nothing if not a straight talker. Her easy interaction with people comes through in her relationships. Her positive attitude and genuine good nature, combined with ferocious efficiency and an infectious sense of fun, gains her plaudits and repeat clients.
Alison is a member of a small team doing big things. Tall Poppy Katikati, with only four other sales consultants, holds the largest market share of all Katikati based real estate agencies. While their flat fees make them very competitive in the market it is their service and success that most appeals. “Tall Poppy has a 99.8% customer satisfaction rating overall. That’s a great record to uphold,” says Alison, “though of course I am going for 100%!”
Tall Poppy embraced technology early on, having no physical office keeps overheads down, a benefit they can pass to their clients. Alison loves working for a company that is truly in the digital age where their excellent and easily navigated website acknowledges how much property searching is done online prior to the actual viewing. This increases salesperson efficiency and success rates.
However, nothing can replace the advice and expertise of an experienced agent who knows her market. Alison lives on a lifestyle block surrounded by horticulture. Past experience as a vet nurse examples her empathy, a payroll job with Bentley cars in England and a real estate office position in New Zealand, honed her administration ability. She works very hard and uses well developed negotiation skills to get the best result for her vendors.
Alison lists and sells orchards, lifestyle blocks and residential property from Aongatete to Waihi and Hauraki, Kaimais to coastline. It’s a busy life and one she enjoys every minute of.
“I love people, I love property and I love being true to myself in my professional life.”
