I originate from South Africa and in 1990 I met this wonderful Kiwi bloke Paul and we married in 1995. After an unfortunate hijacking incident outside my parents home in Johannesburg, Paul decided that he couldn't bring our children up in South Africa so we relocated back to his home in South Auckland where he joined Barfoot & Thompson in 2002. With two darling sons I started learning the kiwi culture and realised how important community is and just loved the Kiwi way. I was lucky to be a stay at home mum and bring up my boys in the wonderful neighbourhood of Wattle Downs. I began to get involved with several community organisations which I soon recognised were an essential part of keeping our neighbourhood safe and enhancing the beauty around us.
I am a qualified Hotelier having completed the Hotel School with 3 years study. I worked in the industry and travelled extensively in South Africa. I believe I have a down to earth nature and my people skills are essential to any real estate transaction. I joined Barfoot & Thompson Manurewa in 2005, and quickly realised that I loved the real estate business. I have become a highly-respected, and sought after, salesperson and have been lucky enough to achieve many excellence awards over the past 10 years.
I specialise in marketing and selling properties in the Manurewa and Wattle Downs area. I am actively involved in the community and stand as Vice Chairperson of the local Residents Association. I am also a great support for the local residents, businesses and schools, getting involved in all the galas, tree plantings and head up the local newsletter for the Wattle Downs area. I am also involved in sponsoring the local golf club.
With an outstanding amount of experience behind me, I have a strong referral client base and feel I have the unique ability to bring purchaser and vendor together to create the perfect real estate transaction.
