About Joanne McLean

My fascination with real estate lies in that every house has the potential to be a great home for someone.

I came to the role of Administrator at the Barfoot & Thompson Tauranga branch from a background of years of running my own business. Together with my husband, it began by growing flowers for the export market. It then morphed into a grower supply and consultancy company for intensive greenhouse production of flowers and vegetables.

I was studying for a Diploma in Information and Communication Technology at the time so I was well qualified to take on the accounts, sales, esales, the website and brochures for the business. On the odd occasion, I could be seen driving a truckload of potting mix and I even designed and built a home hydroponic kit for growing lettuce!

I’m a practical handy person and I am always renovating something at my own home. I think that’s why I can see and relate to the continuing needs of houses in our property management portfolio.

Tauranga is such a great place to live and work. Even though it has grown to be New Zealand’s fifth largest city, it has retained a relaxed holiday vibe. The beaches and cafes are up there with the best.

In a past life, I was into rowing and I’m quite proud to say I competed in NZ Master’s rowing and won a number of events. I’m into cycling at the moment. There is nothing better than cycling 10 kms to work and back on my ebike, the wind in my hair and not a care in the world. Just don't try and get hold of me on a Friday. It’s my day off so I’m probably heading off on a campervan or an ebike adventure!

We’re a great team at the Tauranga branch. Landlords, tenants, we work with everyone to find the right tenant or the right place to call home.
