AUTUMN is on its way……..

With Easter just around the corner it seems that everything is back to its normal cycle – the ‘blip’ that occurred pre Christmas with buyers believing that the market would dive hasn’t eventuated – actually, the opposite has occurred buyers are feeling confident, sellers are seeing that the auction results are securing great prices for them – so if you’ve been hesitating….. don’t, some great sales success stories listed below – if you would like to be one of them – please give me a call we have buyers from across the globe waiting to buy.

A recurring theme and trend is for sellers in Auckland relocating out of the city - I had asked one of our clients to highlight their thoughts and journey "searching for the good life" a great read for those contemplating living out of Auckland.

As you may also be aware Make-A-Wish is our Principle Charity Partnership and how thrilling it is to be able to assist families in granting them and their children a wish come true – with that said we are holding a Ladies Fashion Lunch in May – if you would like to book seats or a table please do check out our link below.

Cheers

Residential Salesperson

LIVING EDGE
Furnishing from Scratch

Those of us who’ve bought or sold a home or just visited an open home lately have seen how clever home staging can transform spaces from bland and boring to inspiring. Not quite so well-known is the ability Living Edge has to take a brand new home and give it the glam designer look from start to finish – even before new homeowners move in. more

 


   

SIGNATURE STYLE, Jackie O'Fee
What should I budget on clothes?

When we create a shopping list with a client we usually also set a budget together for what we’ll be buying. Sometimes this is very specific, as in when a client asks “Do you think $3k will cover it?” and sometimes it’s implied. Often, it’s about what the client wants as an outcome, with men in particular happy to admit that they need to “lift their game” sartorially, and that they are seeing a shopping trip with a stylist as an investment in their career. Women will also do this, but are less likely to state it so openly.

PARADIGM SHIFT, Rebecca Morris
Why do we repeat the same patterns when we know they don’t serve us anymore?

The first two to respond to Jackie gets a copy of Rebecca's book, EMPOWER ME.

I see business owners expressing disappointment with the results they are getting but do nothing about changing the situation.

There are always two questions I ask when addressing the issues of what is holding them back in business.

JACKIE'S RECIPE OF THE MONTH
Prawn and Coconut Curry

A little goes a long way here. Using a bit of coconut cream, rather than a lot of coconut milk, gives you the creamy taste, without as much fat.

Wine Match for Prawn and Coconut Curry
REDMETAL Hawkes Bay Albariño 2015

Aromatic stone fruit with a hint of citrus, followed by a rounded palate and a long, clean finish. If you like Pinot Gris you will love this wine.

A sip of Albariño can be the taste equivalent of raising a shell to your ear and hearing the sea. There's nothing quite like the zesty, briny character of this Spanish white variety, which makes it the perfect companion for seafood and has propelled it to a position of high fashion in the wine world.

Now New Zealand is making exciting examples, and the REDMETAL 2015 from Hawkes Bay is one of the best you will find, only small amount available (definitely not in supermarkets) Available online or in store at Wine and More cnr Rosedale Rd Albany, Wine time (on line only) more
