Well, I know I keep saying it but the year really is racing by – and as is usual for this time of the year the property market will begin to do its final race to the end of the year if sellers need to be sold before Xmas – don’t despair – we can help, but also do bear in mind buyers will continue to look for properties during the Xmas period, particularly those that are relocating from out of Auckland – I work through this period and have a great option for those sellers not quite ready to be officially on the market – but still wanting to have a representation and be on the radar for both national and international buyers looking to secure homes before the next school period starts.

And with racing firmly in mind, don’t forget Melbourne cup day looming – we have SOLD OUT – a great response to our fashion in the field lunch and race day at Regatta – look forward to some photos of our winners and wish you lots of luck with your hot tips.

And talking about hot tips, don’t miss out on our fabulous recipe this month and a cheeky little vino to go with it – superb!! And if you are thinking that after all the fabulous wine and food you need to do some exercise – come on down to the Greenhithe Tennis club – of which I am the proud sponsor and looking forward to helping the club and Make-A-Wish Charity in making dreams come true!! Do let me know if you would like to join us for a beginners or refresher course at the club.

And for those buyers looking to secure a home and make your families dreams come true to check out my new listings, lots of gorgeous homes coming to the market to suit families of all ages and sizes.

See you around the tracks………

Jackie Smith

Make a Wish Foundation - Azarias Wish

9 year old Azarias with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy wished for a family holiday filled with animals, teddy bears and superheroes!

Superheroes are kind of our specialty - so we had such a fun time designing Azarias wish, which involved a behind the scenes tour with our friends at the Auckland Zoo, making a Batman teddy at Teddy Garden and a trip around Butterfly Creek with his favourite superheroes including Batman, Spiderman, Superwoman, Ironman and Captain America.

Although Azarias arrived in a wheelchair at Butterfly Creek, it was just beautiful to see him spend the entire trip walking around meeting the animals while holding Batman's hand - now that is the power of a wish!




51 things I love about you Marlborough ……the final 11…
