At 19 I purchased my first home. Three renovations later, I am still as passionate about real estate as I was the first time I went through an open home. Of my renovations, the most notable is possibly the one we completed as contestants on series one of The Block NZ. After ten weeks of hardwork, little sleep and lots of cameras, Bayleys sold 72 Anzac Street for us at auction. And so my relationship with this great company began.
My parents are dairy farmers; as such I have had the great pleasure of growing up in the wider Waikato region. Primary and secondary schooling began in Otorohanga and finished at St Peters in Cambridge. I completed my tertiary study with a degree in Marketing and Public relations from the University of Waikato which lead to an opportunity with The Waikato Rugby Union where I spent three years delivering marketing strategies and managing events ranging from ITM Cup to All Blacks tests.
Living in the Waikato region and working for the Waikato Rugby Union has taught me a lot about pride of place and the importance kiwis place on where we call home. I know how lucky I am to be able to assist people in the buying and selling process that is part-and-parcel with finding their new place to call home.
Tennis is a passion that I have known all my life. After picking up a racquet at the age of ten, I went on to represent New Zealand a total of eight times before the age of 18. Following this, I took up a full tennis scholarship to the University of Texas, San Antonio where I spent a year travelling, studying and playing tennis abroad. Tennis has taught me the values of commitment, discipline and determination. Lessons that I use as the foundations for my life in work and in play.
I have been fortunate to enjoy some extensive travel. Travel has a knack for teaching you about what there is to love and appreciate about home – and there is plenty to love about Hamilton.
My commitment to consistently delivering an outstanding level of service, knowledge and customer care provide some clues as to why Bayleys was the right choice for me, and is the right choice for you.
