#5 Individual Salesperson, Commercial, to end March 2017
I have recently moved to live full-time on Great Barrier Island. My wife Jackie and I own a property at beautiful Okupu, where we have lived for the past 14 years with our two children. The children both now attend Otago University and Jackie and I are currently building a new family home on the property and I’m really excited.
I’m looking forward to our new life on the Barrier and will bring the Barfoot & Thompson brand to the island where I will work as a residential salesperson.
For the past 12 years I’ve worked from the Barfoot & Thompson City Commercial office as a Commercial and Industrial salesperson and I’m proud to say that I always finished in the top five salespeople and twice I’ve been Number 1! I was also the Manager of the Auckland Industrial team.
I have a Bachelor of Business Studies BBS, with a double major in Valuation and Property Management and I also hold a Diploma in Business Studies DBS, majoring in marketing. I owned my own valuation practice in Auckland, Regal Shadbolt Jensen, and completed my valuation registration. I also worked as a commercial mortgage broker for 10 years raising millions of dollars for commercial projects throughout New Zealand.
I am looking forward to the challenge of working on the Barrier as a residential/commercial salesperson. As in my career to date, I will bring the same level of professionalism and energy to the job.
So if you are thinking of selling and want to remove the stress from the selling process or you would like to talk with someone about your real estate requirements, I’m here to provide you professional and confidential advice to ensure your property is promoted in the best possible light.
Mike recently handled the sale of our property in Garden Rd, Tryphena. We had owned the property for over 15 years and, when we decided to sell, our expectation was that it could potentially take quite some time to find a buyer, as is often the way on Aotea/GBI.
As it turned out, Mike organised an effective marketing campaign and presented us with three offers within two weeks of us signing the listing agreement. He also provided us with invaluable advice as to how to respond to each offer. We sold the property for well in excess of CV, with a short settlement period.
We were very impressed with Mike's professional approach to the sale, and delighted with the result. Having owned a property on the Barrier and now being a resident, Mike has valuable local knowledge. I have no hesitation in recommending Mike to prospective vendors and purchasers.
Yours sincerelyPeter & Lindy Alderton
