Amazing that we are almost at that magical time of the year – with everyone busy getting their homes ready each weekend for open homes and families attending open homes trying to achieve their goals of a new home for the new year – but if you think you have missed your moment – don’t despair – the market is the market is the market and there will always be new purchasers entering the arena to buy – strangely enough over the Christmas period I have found in years past to be incredibly buoyant – families that are relocating to Auckland often have more time to spend viewing homes during the Christmas break, which is why I choose to work this period – so, if you think 2017 might be the year for a new move for you – do give me a call – I have some great ideas for showcasing your home during this period to active buyers.

The Melbourne Cup day passed with great success and lots of winners, not only on the track but also for our Bayleys Foundation Make-A-Wish event – we played host to around 200 guests at the Regatta Bar in Takapuna, we arranged a fabulous fashion show with clothes by Repertoire and Life for Men and seconded our fabulous clients to assist in modelling – totally out of their comfort zone, but because of their kind generosity in time and presence and with some wonderful auction and raffle items, we raised over $11,000 dollars for this incredibly worthy cause – and are delighted that we have managed to grant some wishes for children and families that so deservedly need our help – do check out the link below to view the photos - just a fab day all round.

I’d also like to introduce my physio John and his team at Pure Physio – I had a couple of injuries this year and he has been fabulous at putting me back – almost – to my younger self – bloomin hard I can hear you say but hey, the old bones are still marching on – and with marching on to Christmas clearly in sight – I have some fabulous recipes this month a truly easy and incredibly festive and eye catching pavlova for you all to try – next month we will have some great recipes to get you through the festive period.

Look forward to seeing you around the tracks
