It has only taken 5 years to add an ‘about me’ page to this blog 🙂

Something always stopped me in the past. I guess it’s that same nagging feeling you get when you know you have to introduce yourself to a group of strangers or write a bio for the company website. I will happily write a reference for someone else, but when it comes to writing about myself I just sit there staring at the keyboard like I have forgotten how to type.

Everything I have written for this blog has been penned because I enjoy sharing knowledge that might help someone and truth be told, sometimes I just enjoy having a rant. Writing a bio was never top of the list of priorities. But alas, it’s probably important you know where this is all coming from, especially as we have just launched a new Wellington real estate agency and we would love your support!

So here goes…

It all started when I left uni to work for my Dad’s real estate I.T company. It was there that I caught the property bug. Seeking independence, I joined NZ’s largest real estate firm (Harcourts) and spent 11 years working as a salesperson, manager, owner and coach, honing my skills in marketing, negotiating and consulting. I met some truly wonderful people and made life-long friends as a result of being part of that organisation.

After taking a year off to travel the world (finally did that O.E), followed by a highly enjoyable sabbatical in Auckland, we returned to Wellington with a new-born and a puppy in tow. Eager for a new challenge.

Starting our own agency had been a goal for many years and in 2018 that came to fruition with the launch of our independent property agency. At relatable, we are bucking the trend by providing un-matched digital marketing campaigns (usually at no cost to our owners) combined with market-leading commission rates. We also have an ‘experts only’ hiring policy so you can be sure that every member of our team is life-definingly serious about real estate. We simply won’t accept anyone practising on the public.

Outside of Wellington, I provide coaching for a small group of dedicated real estate specialists around the Country and occasionally appear on the radio or speak at events.

I also answer general interest questions when possible for buyers and sellers all over the Country and help future sellers find the best agent in their location. If you are looking for a recommendation, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Outside of real estate, I am passionate about plant-based food, climate change, finding ways to donate effectively, working with nice people, CrossFit, NFL and spending time with loved ones.

Note: If you have a business/startup idea centred around plant-based food and/or environmental sustainability and need help with marketing or funding. Send me an email.

Biggest likes: Dog walks, sunshine, coconut latte’s, deep & meaningful conversations.

Favourite podcasts: Hardcore history, The Tim Ferriss Show, PTI, Waking up by Sam Harris.
