She recognises a client’s need for a high level of communication, and places a strong emphasis on listening to what her client wants and working alongside them as a team to achieve the best result possible. Those who have worked with Sophie appreciate her honesty, attention to detail, exceptional work ethic and determination to secure a sale at a premium price.

Sophie is dedicated to continuously improving her skills and knowledge, committing herself to attending many training courses and seminars throughout the year, as well as constantly sourcing statistics on what sales are being achieved in Havelock North and the wider area on a monthly basis.


"Where does one start. Sophie is an absolute delight to work with, it made selling my home totally stress free. From the minute I met her I felt the confidence and professional approach she had towards my property was second to none.  Sophie... communicated everything so quickly and efficiently as things progressed it was amazing. I would totally recommend using Sophie and would most definitely use her again in the future."

"Upon interviewing other Sales Associates Sophie stood head and shoulders above them with her infectious enthusiasm, professionalism, market knowledge and genuine interest in marketing our property for sale. We were sceptical about the Auction pr...ocess initially but from Sophie’s expert house staging, even lent some of her own chattels!... a very successful Auction outcome was the end result. Outstanding communication and after sales, attention to detail certainly augments Sophie as a real market leader in the Havelock North area."
