About Michaela

I moved to the Ruapehu region about four years ago and have absolutely fallen in love with the place that I now call home. After working as a property manager for long term rentals and holiday homes – I felt a slight change within the property industry was beckoning. Becoming a Real Estate Agent was the best decision I could have made and since completing my real estate papers, I am enjoying every minute.


My experience as a property manager has really helped my understanding of the rental market in the area which is a bonus for vendors and potential purchasers. I love the uniqueness of each interaction, process and result and I continually enjoy getting stuck in and working through every step with a high level of care. I pride myself in getting the job done well and providing a friendly, honest and genuine service to all of my clients.


I absolutely love the community that I now feel very part of and the never ending list of outdoor activities that this slice of paradise has to offer – summer and winter! Very grateful for the opportunities I have here and my ability to help people either move on or move in.



‘I really wanted to thank you again for making my home buying experience so pleasant. I appreciated how honest and easy going you were and how you made everything run so smoothly. Nothing was ever felt to be an effort or too big of an ask and that was due to your kind nature, efficiency and expertise. It's been an absolute pleasure, thank you again.’

'Michaela made the process of buying a house easy. She was very easy to relate too and built rapport with me as her client quickly. During our search she provided guidance and advice always looking out for our best interest. Michaela made sure to understand my needs as a client and manage my expectations throughout the process. She was very knowledgeable, professional and approachable during the process. She put us in touch with all the right people from lawyers too builders whom she trusted and we could too. Because of Michaela, the process was smooth and seamless, she communicated with us along the way and made herself available all hours to answer any of our concerns. Highly recommend.'
