After living in Los Angeles for 14 years and accumulating eight valuable years of experience in the real estate industry, I decided it was time to come home and live the Kiwi dream. You could say that I've loved real estate worldwide, and as they say, there's no place like home!
In 2008, I began my real estate journey as a licensed assistant to a team of top-producing teams in the US. Over a two-year period, I assisted in closing over $60M in residential real estate. From there, armed with knowledge, I moved on to working as a real estate salesperson that specialised in investor relationships. I developed an expertise in market research, marketing packages, branding, social media, negotiating, writing contracts, qualifying clients and managed multiple projects for investor clients. Finally I ended my stint in the States as an executive assistant in a real estate investment firm with approximately $5 billion of investment capital.
Today you can find me living rurally with my partner, three children, a dog and chickens. I am active in the local community and love to volunteer in my free time.
I'm excited to be a part of the Barfoot & Thompson team which is the largest privately owned real estate agency in New Zealand. They are still owned and operated by the Barfoot & Thompson families and while they know how to treat you like family they also offer a team working behind the scenes that is the best in the business.
If you're looking for an experienced salesperson who delights in creating outstanding results, contact me today.
"Rachel did an excellent job from start to finish so everything went smoothly. As you can imagine, selling up and moving after 44 years in the same house was a big job. She and her family were very supportive during the sale."Kathy
