Real estate is an industry that touches everyone. Home ownership, for many people, is an aspirational goal for which they strive. In my role as Account Manager, I am presented with unique and rewarding experiences on a daily basis. That’s what I love about my job!
I discovered early in my career, that Body Corporates were often misunderstood by many taking their first steps into real estate. I believe I can simplify the process. I have the potential to help a great many people. In my time in the industry I have developed a keen eye for detail and an ability to solve problems that sometimes arise in the management of Body Corporates.
In 1923, Barfoot & Thompson opened their first office in Newmarket, where I grew up. When I discovered that I felt an immediate affinity with the company. The Body Corporate division is relatively new for Barfoot & Thompson. So, having the opportunity to be in on the ground floor, whilst enjoying the benefits of working for a large company, was also very appealing.
I’ve completed a Bachelor of Property and Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Auckland. While completing my degrees I earned ‘First Place’ in the University of Auckland Property Case Competition in 2016. I also won ‘First’ Place in the University of Auckland Engineering Case Competition in 2017. I am particularly proud of both of these honours.
What I love about Auckland is that it is truly New Zealand's great metropolitan city. It has all the amenities of city life you would come to expect in the great cities of the world. All of this is available whilst we, as a people, are able to maintain a relaxed Kiwi way of life all set in the back drop of New Zealand's pristine beaches and rural landscape.
I’m lucky to have incredibly supportive parents who introduced me to real estate from a very young age. I believe it has set me up for success. I also have an amazing little brother who is still at university and will soon join New Zealand’s dynamic property industry. I enjoy going to town with my friends, playing games, golf and swimming.
