My long fascination with architecture and design and an eye for detail, coupled with a keen understanding of the importance of customer service, held me in good stead during my year’s tenure as Property Manager at Barfoot & Thompson St Heliers. Then 2020 came with a unique set of challenges. Like many others, I found myself re-evaluating the hustle and bustle of city life.
In a previous life I was a chef (I have a Certificate in Patisserie) and a catering manager. I recently completed three years at Dilworth School catering for the 600 boarding students. After running day-to-day kitchen operations, I am no stranger to planning and cost efficiencies, both of which I will use in my new role. I also know the importance of regular preventative maintenance and will use a practical strategy to implement it.
No stranger to re-invention, I bring to the team at Pukekohe a varied and broad range of experiences and a diverse knowledge of business unit management. This is across various industries, including wholesale, retail and hospitality. I love the pace and variety that property portfolio management brings and proudly wear the Barfoot & Thompson brand.
With the move to Pukekohe, I look forward to establishing long-term sustainable relationships within the community. Of utmost importance to me, is maintaining a high level of professionalism, ensuring that our clients and their valuable investments receive the care and attention they deserve.
Louise Abbott has looked after the management of our rental property since October 2019. We have had quite a few Barfoot & Thompson managers since moving overseas to live in August 2009. Louise is without a doubt one of the best (if not the best) we have had looking after our affairs. She is super efficient and very quick to respond via email. In some cases Louise has investigated problems and offers solutions that makes our decision so much easier. She is very proactive. We feel very well looked after and can highly recommend Louise as account manager.Chris & Pauline
