WINTER HAS ARRIVED

Well we are half way through the year and it is zipping past!! With the shortest day just around the corner, I like to believe that spring will be coming but in the meantime, showcasing homes during the winter months is a great time to let your home stand out from the crowd – I have plenty of tips on how to do that so if you are thinking of selling over the post autumn period – let me know!! At the moment we are constantly being asked if the market has slowed or whether we are going to see another boom – from my experience, life goes on and whether you are buying or selling only you get to dictate when the time is right – the market, is the market, and will do whatever it is going to do regardless of the media saying otherwise – with that said, yes I am seeing strong indicators from buyers still looking for properties and sellers looking to make a change – we are still seeing strong interest from buyers outside of the North Shore as well as international buyers looking to invest in this beautiful place I am lucky enough to call home.

I just also wanted to say a huge thank you to all of those that supported our first Make-A-Wish Ladies Lunch – we had a fabulous day, lots of laughter, lots of fashion and lots of great memories do check out the photos and watch this space for future events.

Also do check out the link below from Sharon Laffan of Living Edge and their forthcoming design and architecture and fashion tour to NEW YORK!!!!!!! Do make contact with Sharon if you would like further details.

Happy June!!!

Regards,
Jackie Smith
Agent

JACKIES RECIPE OF THE MONTH
Annable Langbein's Crispy Pork Belly

The key to great pork crackling is to dry the skin side of the meat well before sprinkling it with salt. Blast the pork in a hot oven to begin with to get the skin crunchy, then slow cook it for a further hour and a half in a bath of milk, which makes it really moist and tender. more
