Real estate professional Dale Sholson knows the Pauanui and Thames-Coromandel areas like the back of his hand. He’s lived here for over 15 years and knows what makes these markets tick. His dedication to the local area is evident in the fact that Dale has spent many years serving as a volunteer fire fighter in Pauanui and senior coastguard crew member for Tairua Pauanui Coastguard. This has seen him presented with the New Zealand Fire Brigade’s Long Service and Good Conduct Medal, a meritorious award for members of recognized fire services in New Zealand who have completed 14 years of service. This speaks volumes of Dale’s personal traits of honesty, trustworthiness and dedication – traits that his real estate clients also benefit from as Dale helps them to buy and sell homes.
Dale’s eclectic background involves everything from being a qualified panel beater to entrepreneurship, which saw him start his own successful business The Kiwi Outdoor Oven Company – which he later sold. This business managed the manufacture of a New Zealand made item and involved Dale importing machinery from overseas, attending trade shows and exporting product. It also incorporated a seasonal wood fired pizza business. This taught him all about marketing, systems, sales, forecasting, budgeting and never ever giving up, positioning him perfectly to transition into a career in real estate.
Standing up for what is right is important for Dale and he is always willing to challenge something if he doesn't think it’s correct meaning his clients can have full confidence that he is looking out for their best interests at all times. Practical and hard working, Dale’s aim is always to create a win-win for both parties in any real estate transaction. Repeat business is the ultimate accolade.
Dale lives in Pauanui and outside of work he enjoys spending time with family and indulging his love of classic and muscle cars, wood fired cooking, fishing and boating.
