After emigrating from Holland to New Zealand in 1986 I commenced a Landscaping Design and Construction Business and did this up until the late 90’s.

After the sale of my business, I went dairy farming. I have since been involved in the management, development and the successful sale of three of my own dairy farms. One of these was in Invercargill.

This was very successful however this was not where my passion laid, it was always “property” both development and now, the successful marketing and sale of lifestyle and residential Real Estate.

I have lived in New Plymouth for most of my life and love what this beautiful city has to offer.

Time away in Melbourne in my youth and more recently a brief stint living in the UK has made me realise just what a great place New Plymouth is to live in. There are very few places that offer the opportunity to enjoy the magnificence of our mountain, the beaches and the bush all within easy reach of each other while also offering a lively arts and garden culture which attracts so many visitors. Having bought and sold several properties in the past I am aware of the stress and excitement involved in buying and selling properties.

My years of working as a registered nurse has heightened my ability to relate well with people and understand their needs, I believe this skill transfers well into the real estate sector where a client centred approach is paramount. My goal is to recognise your real estate needs, wants and desires and to work closely with you to deliver on those expectations.

My passions are travel, meeting new people and learning about other cultures - I’m always interested in what brings new people to our lovely province.

I have two adult children, two delightful granddaughters and three boisterous step sons. Apart from family time some of my favourite pastimes are cycling the Coastal Walkway, motor biking with my partner Leo around our beautiful province or walking our dog Kala on Back Beach.
