Well I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break and a great time with family and friends and yes I survived mine here from the UK and thankfully they are now beginning to enjoy some real Kiwi summer weather….kids will be back to school and then life continues as normal! Phew how quickly time seems to go and as is usual for this time of year the real estate market changes gear as more families look to upsize, downsize or simply change locations and more homes begin to enter the market arena. Pre Christmas I feel everyone was almost waiting to exhale and thinking that with recent changes in the industry that the market would just dry up…. That didn’t occur, over the Christmas period I had the opportunity to work with lots of families that had sold and needed to find a new home, as in all things, real estate included, life goes on and people still need to buy homes. With that said we have had some marvellous new properties hit the market and I have included them in this months newsletter as usual – if you would like to view any of the properties or simply want more info or perhaps its time for you to get an updated appraisal on your homes worth – drop me a line or give me a buzz – always happy to pop round for tea or wine…timing appropriate.
Hope you all enjoy the bank holiday weekend (sorry some things I always revert back to!!!) and look forward to seeing you soon.

Are you still looking cool?

It’s interesting that as our lives change and evolve, we sometimes hanker over something we used to have. Sometimes we get stuck at a time in our lives when life was more fun or when we were younger and actually felt ‘cool’. Perhaps we don’t fully appreciate that as life has changed and moved on so have we? Never is this more apparent when looking into a clients’ wardrobe or taking them shopping. Your wardrobe often provides an interesting insight into your life. more
