Upon completing a degree at Waikato University at the age of 24, I bought my first investment property. This was the beginning of a reasonable investment portfolio and a passion for Real Estate. Now I get the opportunity and great pleasure in assisting other people to realise their real estate goals, whether it is buying their first home, dream home or investment property.
Having a teaching background gave me a head start in my career of marketing and selling residential and lifestyle property. Teaching for 11 years has developed many skills:
A wide breadth of networks
Strong listening skills
A confident and effective delivery style
A good understanding of positive teamwork
I loved teaching, particularly the last five years at Cambridge High School, and all the rewards that came with it. However, in 2005 an opportunity arose and the chance to work for a great company. The Bayleys mission statement reads, ‘we are committed to maximising the value of our client’s real estate assets through superior customer service’. I firmly believe that through our ability to market quality property and the excellent results we gain, this is achieved for our clients.
I have a love for sport, in particular rugby and am affiliated with the Hamilton Old Boys Club. I have now focussed my rugby interest to refereeing and have set high goals in this field. I have travelled extensively throughout the UK and Europe, basing myself in London for three years. Whilst travelling through Spain, I met my wife Shani and we now have four beautiful children. We also lived in Japan for two years, where I played rugby whilst experiencing their beautiful culture.
I live with three basic principles; to succeed you must be ‘hardworking, reliable and honest’.
