Tina was raised in Morocco for 14 years and then studied in Paris for 7 years. She followed her dream to travel and arrived in New Zealand “Tina soon fell in love with our beautiful country and her husband to be, Marko! (the rest they say is history”)
After travelling New Zealand, she & Marko have settled in Matamata for the past 5 years and love being part of this great community. Her unique worldly view has equipped her with empathy and the ability to connect with people from all walks of life.
Tina is a natural people-person and has worked in hospitality for the past 14 years in Restaurant Managerial roles, for the likes of Madam Woo and Osteria. “Hospitality is like real estate in many aspects. “You start a day without knowing how it is going to end, and you go above and beyond for customers” Tina says.
She adds enthusiasm, the ability to serve, commitment to growth and approachability. She is excited to help her clients realise their dream home, while assisting with a stress-free buying and selling process.
The real estate industry has always been a dream career for Tina, and 2021 is her year! Aside from her exuding passion for property, she brings a wealth of experience in sales and customer service.
Tina loves to form and build lasting relationships. Her warm and calm manner instantly makes people feel at ease in her presence. In the same breath, she is confident and highly professional, and clients can feel assured in her work and know they are taken care of, every step of the way.
Tina is a valuable asset to Bayleys Matamata. When not selling residential property, you can find her participating in theatre, attending comedy shows, meditating or taking care of her two French bulldogs.
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others”.
– Mahatma Gandhi.
