Carl and UK-born wife Vanessa are a professional partnership who deliver no-nonsense facts. Having worked together for a number of years, experience has proven that this is simply the most effective way to do business. Their results speak for themselves, with numerous repeat clients and referrals making up a large part of their trade.

Originally from Dunedin, Carl spent five years in the UK where he met Vanessa and formed this energetic and efficient team. Carl and Vanessa have both always worked in Sales and Marketing roles; Carl at Outside Sports, Timeless Tiles, Redlands Equestrian Centre and Harcourts; Vanessa at Q92, Channel 5, Action Television, Redlands Equestrian Centre and Harcourts. This experience coupled with their own involvement in property and investment through the years make them an ideal fit for New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty.

Carl and Vanessa run New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty’s newly-opened Arrowtown office and showroom. Currently living on a farm at Arrow Junction, Carl and Vanessa are community driven and their combined market knowledge and approachability ensure that there are always people stopping by the Arrowtown office, where “the atmosphere is really relaxed and the fridge is always stocked.”

Their specialty areas are rural lifestyle properties and Arrowtown residential. With Vanessa’s attention to detail, and Carl’s affable nature, their solid teamwork is guaranteed to achieve maximum value for their clients’ properties.
