  • Blair Earnshaw

    Blair Earnshaw

    Licensed Sales Consultant

    A DESIRE TO SUCCEED I have enjoyed a career in sales for the past 30 years where I have used my abilities to move up from sales in to management positions, by understanding that every person you deal with deserves the right to be heard, listened to and understood. Always realising that my job was not only to sell but to make sure that the experience was as enjoyable and stress free as possible for the clients I worked with. Having always been the type of person who enjoyed talking to people I have loved my years selling and utilising my skill sets to achieve the best results, communication is to me the number one attribute any good salesperson should have. My wife who I have been with for the past 28 years has been involved in the real estate industry herself for the past 20 years as an office administrator and was the driving force behind me making the decision to make real estate the next step in my career, her belief that I was wasting my talents as a “people person” as she calls it and my ability to achieve the goals that I set myself “a desire to succeed” is the main reason that I have chosen to become a real estate agent. My commitment to my clients is to understand that any client, who gives me an opportunity to work with them on their next real estate purchase or sale, is showing confidence in me. I in return, must show them the respect, work ethic and desire to succeed that confidence deserves.

    Licensed Sales Consultant

    Milena has brought to real estate a wealth of experience in sales to the most demanding clientele. After nearly eight years with Mercedes-Benz as an award winning sales consultant and two years with Louis Vuitton, she has taken professionalism to a whole new level. Passion for excellence is her driving force. She pays special attention to her clients’ needs whether working with buyers or sellers. Her extensive experience in sales, negotiation, needs analysis and great listening skills combined with sunny predisposition, make her everything that one hopes to find in their real estate consultant. “My approach is simple – it’s all about the client. It’s so important to act professionally, with integrity and always do what you promised to do and more… That 1% over and above a 100% is what makes a whole lot of difference.” “Two of my favourite sayings have always been – “retail is in detail” and “we have two ears and one mouth for a reason”. Although real estate differs from retail, the philosophy of paying attention to detail can never fail and listening more than talking will always deliver great results because it ultimately boils down to knowing what the client wants.” Testimonials “You are a very talented and warm person and we felt lucky you helped us with this big purchase.” Kindest Regards, Rose and Ross Roberts “You are quite simply the best salesperson I think I will ever meet.” Regards, Craig Rhodes “Thank you very much for your time and your high standard professional service”. Janice Li “Thank you Milena for the time and effort you put into the sale of the cottage. We especially appreciate the way you kept us informed during the process.” Keith and Jane Milligan “I found Milena very friendly and easy to communicate with and she made the process easy for me.” Gillian Lloyd “Thank you so much in helping me secure my first home! I’m so grateful to have had your guidance and sound support along the way.” Maddy Surie “I was fortunate enough to have Milena as my agent while selling my Christchurch property while living in Wellington. Throughout a highly stressful process, Milena was incredibly helpful and accommodating. She really went above and beyong in terms of organising stuff for me and being super aware of keeping me in the loop I would not hesitate to recomment Milena to anyone who wants an upfront, helpful and accommodating agent.” Karen Gillie "Milena recently sold a small lifestyle block for me using the auction process. Throughout the entire process I found that Milena kept me very well informed and I could not fault her professionalism. Another thing I appreciated about Milena was her readiness to consider my input and opinions. She clearly has a lot of experience in sales, presents herself impeccably, but at the same time is very approachable. Milena also appears to be well organised and thoughtful. I can recommend her to anyone wanting an agent who will work hard for them to get the best result possible" Amanda Smith
