What do you enjoy most about being part of the NZSIR team?

The NZSIR team represents the pinnacle of professionalism within the real estate industry, not just in New Zealand but internationally. Working within a team that genuinely cares about our clients and achieving the best outcome for them is important to me. 

What are the secrets to your success?
It’s always diffi cult to self-critique. The comments from my clients and customers are what I most take notice of. I am adverse to pushy sales tactics and prefer to work as a trusted adviser to my clients – the transactions I undertake are meaningful and important to them and their families.

Tell us about your background before joining NZSIR:
My previous life was in financial services, funds management and property development. My last role was running the private wealth division of a NZ-owned funds management business with $700 million under management and 10,000 clients.

How do you like to spend your leisure time?
Food and wine are central to my family’s interests. I am often cooking for friends in the weekend and that is my creative outlet. Golf, boating and fi shing are also activities that I very much enjoy, although getting enough time for golf is tricky.

If you could invite any three people to dinner, who would they be?
Barack Obama, Melinda Gates and Angela Merkel. I think the whole geopolitical position of the world is fascinating at present.
