I have been in commercial and industrial sales and leasing for over 17 years. Prior to this, I worked for five years in the equity markets in both New York and London for a large investment bank.
Upon my return to New Zealand, I chose to utilise my Bachelor of Property degree I gained from the University of Auckland, and enter the real estate market. I worked in commercial sales and leasing, initially as an Industrial specialist then as a director for the North Auckland Industrial team for multi-national firm, CBRE.
My areas of expertise have primarily been industrial sales, leasing and investment sales on the North Shore and the West Auckland markets. Another area of focus is land sales and acquisitions leading to design and build transactions and speculative project sell-downs. Collectively I have been directly involved in excess of $150M worth of land and project transactions from Botany to Whangarei.
In May 2014, I accepted the position of commercial sales manager for Barfoot & Thompson's successful North Shore Commercial office. In this role I support 18 sales professionals together with still being involved in numerous significant property transactions across the North Shore market. Since my appointment, the team has significantly increased revenue and market share with a real focus on working collaboratively with the wider Barfoot & Thompson commercial team and extensive Barfoot & Thompson residential network.
