Born in Shanghai China, I immigrated to New Zealand in 1998. I have a genuine empathy for people as a result of my previous career in nursing and emergency care of 13 years. This pastoral experience has helped me greatly in my real estate career today and has given me an ability to build long-lasting relationships with my clients where I endeavour to take care of them from the moment they first put their trust in me up until the entire business transaction has concluded. I believe that after 19 years in this industry I have built up a worthy reputation as being a caring, honest, hard-working and reliable person. For one to be entrusted by a client to sell what is, often their most valued asset I think is both a great honour, as well as a compliment to myself.
I am married with one son and I live locally. During my long accomplished career in real estate sales, I have sold properties all over the Auckland region and so now have a wide knowledge of our wonderful city. I speak Mandarin and English and I can understand Cantonese as well. For those people whose first language is Chinese, being able to communicate in their native language gives them greater confidence when selling or buying through me.
Having been teamed up with my good colleague Jo Orawiec for over nine years, together we can provide an even higher quality service working as two rather than a single operator. We work really hard as a team yet we still manage to have the occasional day off. Having both a Chinese and European combination on our team means we can provide 110% satisfaction when dealing with these ethnicities, and we will always aspire toward achieving the best price possible for you as our valued client.
Cath and I have been very pleased with our decision to have Jo, Cherry & Ellie as our agents for selling our home. We have valued their clear communication throughout the sale and their attention to our needs and concerns. A great team and we highly recommend them.
