"Happy to Help"!

Rachel approaches her Real Estate like a Project Manager, Trusted Advisor and Event Manager, making sure that her attention to detail sees her across all the elements of the process and ensuring all parties are fulfilling their portion on time.

With high standards for a smoother client experience, the numerous 10/10 client testimonials and Agency Awards attest to how happy her clients are with her performance, communication, care and results.

Born in the Manawatu, Rachel's career prior to Real Estate has spanned a decade each, in three primary Industry’s - Law Firms,  Advertising Agencies/Radio Broadcasting, as well as Beauty/ Cosmetology/and Hairdressing. The skills derived from all these Areas has made the perfect marriage of knowledge and expertise for success in Real Estate.

Beginning worklife in Private Law Firms and then moving on to a role as sole Administrative Manager to the Massey University Law Group (12 Lawyer Lecturers), followed by another Private Law firm in Auckland,  Rachel started in Criminal law and then moved on to Conveyancing giving her a clear knowledge of the legal processes involved in Real Estate transactions.

Diversely, whilst still in Auckland, Rachel was enticed to move into the colourful world of Advertising Agencies, specialising in all areas from Television, Print, Magazine, Radio and Digital.  Undertaking numerous roles within the Agency, she later took those skills back to the Manawatu where she settled into the Radio Industry fulfilling positions in Sales, Creative Writing, and some Voiceover work.  Here Rachel developed an acute understanding of the importance of targeting Demographics with clear communication and creativity in advertising and marketing.

Eventually Business Ownership beaconed and Rachel built a Hair, Beauty and Day Spa business specialising in high end luxury treatments.  This caring service industry has resulted in Rachel's ability to show her clients exemplary customer service, organisation, and communication as well as genuine compassion.

After becoming a mother, Rachel relocated to Taupo to raise her daughter in an easy going, beautiful community offering a water based lifestyle and central location, putting her emphasis on being present and available for her child.  

Charlie, her daughter, went on to earn 4 scholarships to the prestigious St Peters School in Cambridge as well becoming an accomplished Athlete in the world of high performance sport. This has led to the decision to relocate and make Rotorua home for all the opportunities that the biking scene and the central location offered.  Charlie will be off to University to study Medicine next year and is currently part of the Skyline First Responders Team in the holiday periods.

Rotorua and Bay of the Plenty, has undoubtedly become a much loved home, enabling all the outdoors adventures and lifestyle excitement that the Family loves, whether on the water, or in the forest, Rotorua and all its beauty, is very much appreciated!
