Before Real Estate, I was a Sole Trader for twelve years. I worked in the development for large scale catering in the retail sector supplying catering to Alpha conferences in the North Island, New Zealand Air Shows, Hamilton Field Days and a host of other events. I developed a Fundraising division within my own catering company supplying an extensive range of products to schools, sporting clubs and various other fundraising initiatives. In 1998 I opened a retail outlet according to MAF standards and sold it a year later in 1999.
I established myself in Real Estate in 1999, this was the start of an amazing, successful and very rewarding career in the industry. Real Estate has enriched my life and from it I have gained an accumulative wealth of knowledge over the years.
Selling houses all over Auckland and other areas of the North island has been an invaluable experience, which enabled me to overcome the most insurmountable challenges. I have enjoyed successful sales that have at times gone beyond our Vendor's wildest dreams. Doing so well for our Vendors has brought me great personal satisfaction.

keeping together is progress, working together is success”
In younger years I had a passion for basketball, horse-riding, motorcycles and vintage cars. In later years after with my children I enjoyed netball, rugby, swimming and skiing.
Within the past 18 years I've traveled to USA, Canada UK and Europe. I found the different cultures an unforgettable and most memorable experience.
I strive for self improvement. Learning something new each day and continuing to learn is my motto. I was a member of Toastmasters for 3 yrs during which I accomplished the Competent Communication Manual and gained the prestigious CC Award.
I continue to study classical piano through the Trinity School of Music, London and enjoy playing classical guitar.
When Real Estate permits we all love fishing and snorkeling and am currently working towards my diving certificate. We are priviledge to own fishing boats capable of everything from fishing off the reef at Orere Point to going out deep sea fishing. Our family just loves to fish!
