Melanie Haru - Wallace & Stratton Real Estate


Melanie Haru
I have 25 years experience in the legal industry working for a wide range of law firms in New Zealand, London and Sydney. In NZ I have worked in Property, Trusts & Estates, Criminal and Insurance litigation within the top 5 law firms. In London I did mainly Corporate and Commercial law dealing in mergers and acquisitions. In Sydney I worked for both mid-tier and top-tier law firms in Energy and Resources. I have recently moved back to NZ to be closer to family and friends. I absolutely love being back home and are settling back into ‘kiwi’ life near the beach. I enjoy playing interclub tennis at Orewa Tennis Club, attending my local church and soaking up all there is to offer living on the Coast. I also enjoy all water activities including swimming, paddle boarding, surfing and kayaking especially with the beach on my door-step. I bring a unique set of qualities and knowledge to my role as a professional real estate agent. I have a vast amount of experience dealing with corporate clients, but also I have a great connection with both young and old. I have a strong work ethic that stems from growing up in South Auckland where I saw my parents work hard for everything they have. I started a paper run at the age of 11 and if I wanted to be successful, I needed to be punctual, reliable and honest. This attitude has always been my driving force in everything I do. My motto is “Anything is possible…if you try and never give up” It also helps to surround yourself with positive people who are like-minded and aiming for the same goals. Wallace & Stratton provides the perfect platform for me to thrive and flourish in my career because I know I am working with the right people.
