When Tina first stepped inside a relative's villa, it was a defining moment. She loved what she saw! It had a magnificent sense of arrival and history, qualities that inspired her to create her own peice of New Zealand history in Whangarei, and after gaining a diploma in Interior Design Tina set about renovating 'doer-uppers'.
In 2006 Tina embarked upon her biggest challenge to date: to relocate a 95 year old villa shell from Mount Eden, Auckland, to Whangarei. Seeing it's potential she was determined and had a vision of establishing her own lifestyle property - no matter how much others tried to put her off. Two years, and hours of intensive work later, a classical family home was created - blending the original architecture with elements of contemporary living.
Tina has spent many years at Northern Publishing - which later led on to the creation of Scene Magazine with a fellow graphic designer and the current publisher of the publication. Experienced in print advertising and marketing, Tina has also owned her own mortgage brokering business. These skills and experience, matched with her own interest and hands-on experience in property, means that Tina can offer her clients a powerful combination of skills, experience, and expertise to draw upon. Tina is passionate about homestyling properties with Ray White Allens to create buyer appeal, and maximise a property’s sale price in a minimum amount of time. After her first year in real estate, Tina was announced the company's 2009 Rookie of the Year. Then in 2010 she won Most Improved salesperson of the year and Runner up to Salesperson of the year (tier2) 2010, 2012 and again in 2016 along with a award for excellence in service to her clients this year.
Tina's family moved to Ruakaka in 1985 from Auckland. Her family are very passionate about the region and have been heavily involved in re establishing the One Tree Point Pony Club at that time. Community spirit runs in the family and is one of the main reasons Tina returned to her coastal home town as our senior real estate consultant at our One Tree Point Office. Tina has designed our new marina office at Marsden Cove providing a modern relaxing coastal feel for our clients and staff. Her knowledge of the area and previous work experience will benefit her clients through the process of buying and selling. Tina has two grown daughter Jasmine who manages a station and trains competition horses in the south island and Chloe who resides in Australia with her young family.
