Licensed salesperson in compliance with the Real Estate Agents Act 2008 as administered by the Real Estate Agents Authority.
Helen is a tenacious negotiator and tireless worker who inspires clients confidence because she knows what she’s doing. She joined Tommy’s in 2001 and won a national REINZ award the year after – testimony to her exceptional sales record and talent from the get go.
Helen’s key strengths are her patience and negotiation skills. "The tougher it gets", says Helen, "the more determined I am to bring it all together." Helen has on occasion even stopped her vendor accepting an offer and gone back to the buyer because she knew she could get more. She has a rare talent for seeing things clearly and brings objectivity into the business of buying and selling.
Helen works in partnership with her husband Paul – that’s two people, with 20 plus years combined experience, working in your best interests. Their complimentary strengths, skills and capacity to get the job done, are well appreciated by clients.
Having had a successful career in banking, including experience as Loans Manager, prior to joining Tommy’s is also put to good use with clients. Understanding people’s needs and working with their expectations is something Helen does very well. A hallmark of Helen’s success is her clear thinking and calm manner through what can be a stressful emotional time.
"Working with the emotion of selling or purchasing a loved family home is not easy. Helping people feel comfortable with the process is all about giving objective, timely advice and a clear pathway to the sale”, says Helen, “when you’ve grown up in this city like I have, and chosen to make it your home, you know a lot of people and you’re known by a lot more. Reputation, goodwill and integrity count for a lot, not just now but for years into the future. That’s why you can count on me to give your sale my very best. I ask myself; if I was you, would I be happy with how well Helen has worked on my behalf? Thinking that way keeps me very, very focused on excellence."
