I have spent several years working in the local health sector, and have developed over this time a real empathy towards people and their varying situations.

Focusing on prioritising your needs, by taking the time to listen to your individual and family requirements, I bring transparency and honesty to ensure that selling your loved home, or buying your next, is as seamless as possible. Committed to my clients, I ensure I am available to answer queries and offer my assistance and knowledge of the local market. I joined the team at Harcourts because I believe in the core values of this brand; People First, Doing the Right Thing, Being Courageous and Fun and Laughter. My commitment, integrity and positive attitude along with the support of a hugely experienced team will ensure that together we can make your real estate dreams a reality.

  • Maureen Vogt

    Maureen Vogt

    Licensed Salesperson REAA 2008

    I bring to real estate a varied and extensive background in health, having worked in a variety of specialist areas including; Neo Natal Intensive Care, Paediatrics, Oncology and Cancer Treatments and most recently Emergency and Trauma. I have had the opportunity and privilege over this time to meet and care for people from all walks of life, all of them going through a variety of events, some tragic and others quite the opposite. What I have found is that we all react and cope differently to situations but most importantly we all want, and deserve, to be treated with respect and care. Real Estate, on one hand is vastly different to working within health and on the other hand is so incredibly similar. Integral to both industries is the need to care about the people we come into contact with while maintaining a high level of professionalism. In both, my commitment to care is to deliver a quality service with an up front, reliable and friendly approach. I am committed to affording every person the highest level of professional service and by ensuring that every client is treated as my ‘most valued’ client. The ‘acid test’ in health is ‘the grandmother test’ and the same applies in real estate – “Would you be happy to have your grandmother treated in this way?” Married to Steve and mum of two girls, a teen and a pre-teen, I was born and raised in Taranaki, however, I have now called the Kapiti Coast home for the past 12 years. ‘The Coast’ offers an unbelievable lifestyle with the “coolest capital in the world” on its doorstep. I love sport and have an absolute passion for netball, having coached at both primary and secondary level, my focus is now on umpiring having become a qualified Kapiti Netball Umpire. My love of sport is rivalled by my love of property, Steve and I are always looking for our next property challenge and have both renovated and built homes. Kiwi’s love property and as a property owner, I am intently aware of the blood, sweat and tears that we all invest into being able to own a home. Finding the right property is indeed a mixture of excitement and fear that it might just slip away. Whereas, selling brings its own raft of emotional highs and lows. Wherever you are at I, along with the Harcourts Team, would love to help you find the solution that is right for you. Give me a call, text or an email – I would love to have a chat about your next step in property.
