Colleen Strachan - UP
A long-time resident of Mt Eden, Colleen is one of the founding members of our highly successful Mt Eden Branch. It was her drive and vision that encouraged us to purchase the prime site we enjoy in Mt Eden Road and redevelop the stunning office we now occupy.
Married to highly respected Architect husband Dave, they have lived in Mt Eden raising their 4 children at the local schools. After 35 years in the area they are now empty nesters, building a new home appropriate for the next season of their lives – on Mt Eden Road.
They have 3 sons all in the property business as builders and a landscape architect. Their daughter Annie is in her final school year, she has a serious bent for all things food, now teaching 5-12 year olds cooking in association with Nosh.
Colleen has been involved in over $500 million of sales over her 18 years in the industry. High on personality and committed to getting it right, Colleen’s reputation has seen her consistently perform at the top of the industry. Needless to say her experience has few peers.
“I’m passionate about real estate, you could say, it’s in my blood – it’s 24/7 – and for me the UP brand and philosophy of providing an intimate bespoke experience for each client perfectly encompasses the real estate service I am proud to provide”.
Time out for Colleen includes gathering the family at the classic Strachan designed “Kiwi Bach” in Mangawhai and occasionally, jaunting to warmer climates.
An avid netballer and all round kiwi sports advocate, she can often be seen on the side-lines of local sports events.
Colleen’s connection with the community extends to fund raising for the Pink Ribbon Cancer Breakfast, an annual event at her home.
Colleen’s high energy and infectious personality is instantly endearing, while her experience brings measurable added value for clients.
