Renowned for her passionate team leadership, extensive industry knowledge and auctioneering prowess – underpinning Sabine’s approach and consistent success is a simple formula: Excellence is chased, mediocrity despised while kindness is queen. These timeless values sit across all of Sabine’s relationships, and form the backbone to her life as well as her work in the real estate arena.
But for Sabine, doing well in the industry cannot be done without enthusiasm and respect. “It’s got to be driven by passion.” In the early years it was tough going, establishing a real estate sales career in Taupo, with four young sons at home keeping life hectic. But real estate got in the blood and since then, the learning has never stopped.
In 2004, an opportunity to move from sales to take up a multi-branch leadership position meant the family made the move to Auckland. Concurrently, Sabine became a regular on the real estate tutoring and mentoring circuit, including 8 years of guest lecturing on Massey University’s real estate papers. Then in 2010, Sabine’s solution driven reputation as a top negotiator saw her land the coveted spot as Bayleys National Auctioneer where she went on to call thousands of residential, commercial and rural auctions around the country, as well as making calling finale auctions on the first 5 seasons of TV3’s “The Block NZ”.
When she was approached to manage the Bayleys Far North team and become chief auctioneer for the northern region in 2017, the opportunity truly resonated – and what better place to live than in the Far North?
Wearing two hats; far north manager and chief auctioneer, what can clients expect? Under Sabine’s watch, this group of far north salespeople will never let up in the pursuit of real estate excellence.
“I’m lucky in this role to share experiences to help clients and the team I lead. It’s important to expand knowledge – good enough is never enough, and that’s what I’ll always bring to the table – an insatiable hunger for outstanding results.”
