After more than 20 years selling real estate I think I can honestly say I know the industry and I understand the market. I pride myself on being honest, professional, thorough and reliable and would love to work with you.
Prior to working in real estate I was involved in the shipping industry as a cargo inspector and marine engineer. I also worked as a Kiwifruit Orchardist for 13 years. I changed to real estate because the lifestyle appealed but mainly because I love meeting people and I enjoy the art of negotiation.
My excellent negotiating skills are evident from the success I have thus far had in real estate. During my time in real estate I have sold Rural, Lifestyle and Residential properties and have been one of the top salespeople in my field. I am proud to now work for Barfoot & Thompson - a company I joined because of their professionalism and integrity.
I believe in being upfront and sincere with both my vendors and purchasers as this reap rewards for all parties. Another reward reaping aspect that I am passionate about is marketing. It is absolutely crucial to give a property the best exposure to the market to obtain a speedy and successful sale.
If you decide to choose me to market and sell a property on your behalf, I can assure you a friendly and professional service.
