Since the early eighties I've lived in Kerikeri and since 2005, I have lived on the Purerua Peninsula. Everything I love to do, I can do in the Bay of Islands; diving, skiing, boating and fishing.
I've travelled extensively all around the world and have run several successful businesses with my husband. For the last eight years I've worked in the real estate industry, and came in the top 50 sales consultants two years in a row for Auckland and Northland.
I believe I have the experience to achieve the best outcomes for my clients. Creating a new future for sellers and buyers is very exciting and I look forward to sharing the experience with you.
Come and see me in the Kerikeri Barfoot & Thompson office and we'll get your journey started!
Lesley Rae was fabulous to work with at the beginning of Level 3 lockdown to get (the property) settled. She certainly helped keep communication flowing well between all parties involved, to get the results they all wanted.
Lesley Rae was the salesperson who navigated me through the tricky phase of buying and selling a property, as COVID19 took over the hearts and minds of New Zealanders.
At the start Lesley appeared as I checked out Barfoot & Thompson''s window for a piece of land on which to build a house. I needed a flat section within the town boundary. The situation in Kerikeri, is that outside the boundary all the appropriate land was over 3,000 sq metres – unsuitable for my needs. I'd looked at a few houses without success and couldn't find that elusive piece of property.
Lesley suggested a home five minutes walk from town on a small section, which was a good option for a retired lady and I promptly engaged with her to purchase and sell my own home here in Kerikeri.
At all times I found Lesley to be helpful and supportive through the process. The actual settlement was delayed and that brought further aspects of care into play.
I had lived in Kerikeri for only two years so I didn't have a lot of contacts here. Lesley pointed to what was available and reminded me of what needed to be completed, step by step. I appreciated this. Even though I had been through the process several times before with previous sales it was important to have those reminders so that everything takes place when it should.
Lesley is a friendly, approachable person who works with professionalism. I am pleased to have found her and can recommend her in the sphere of real estate and related aspects. She took care to carefully explain every detail of the contract and answered my constant questions about the purchase of the new house and sale of my existing house. I was on a limited budget and this was taken into account for marketing purposes.
If you are looking for a person of integrity who is conversant with law changes with regard to real estate I can recommend Lesley – she is a down to earth person who gets things done and will connect you with the information you require.Jenny Neve - April 2020
