Peter explained everything. Peter kept in touch and kept me informed from start to finish. Would I be happy to refer me to Family or Friends? Definitely. – Nikki. Hamilton Hi Peter. Found your service to be the best. No other agent put in the effort in looking up lots of options and actually taking me to them all. Got me to look at houses I had written off for one reason or another and thankfully so, as the one I chose I had done just that to but it is proving to be the best fit for what I wanted. Would happily recommend you to anyone I knew wanting to find a good home. Regards, Ben. Hamilton Peter sold our house within a week. He also put a lot of time and effort to find a house for us.

Selina Bremne Peter - Just wanted to say thank you so much for making the purchase of our first home in New Zealand so easy; everyone told us that buying a house would be stressful, but you made the process so easy for us, especially as it was only a week from first looking at the property to the auction day! We really appreciated the fact that nothing seemed too much trouble for you and you let us view the property as many times as we wanted during the week and always with a smile. I was also extremely impressed that even once we had purchased the property you went out of your way to help us access the property for measuring before completion date. If anyone in Taupo is buying or selling a property I would not hesitate to recommend you to them; in fact if we could ship you off to the UK to try and sell our house there for us I would do- the service you provided for us is far superior to what we have experienced before!

    Growing up on a dairy and deer farm in the Waikato and then building a modern hand’s on farming career within the agriculture industry for the past eighteen years, my farming experience across New Zealand has provided me with strong and essential skills of seeing the potential in rural properties. I am highly motivated, self-driven and offer sound knowledge and vast experience in the fields of agriculture, large scale Dairying, Deer and Dry Stock farming. The arena that the generation of technical farming professionals are working in today is one of high pressure. When it comes to handling the assets of the industry, which represent a lifetime of blood, sweat and tears, there is a requirement for these transactions to be managed with an up-to-date understanding of farming practices and a professional commitment. I am a firm believer in great communication and always work hard to build positive relationships with people at all levels. My goal is to bring 18 years of personal experience to your table and help you achieve your goals, so let’s talk about what’s top of mind for you. Achieving targets is what my life within the industry has been about and my transfer of profession to a rural real estate consultant will not change my positive attitude to my clients to "Bridge the Gap and Bring Results".

    Dale brings to Harcourts Taupo a diversity of experience and a true understanding of rural life in New Zealand having had the fantastic opportunity as a teenager and young adult to have lived in several quiet country towns and worked on a number of sheep and beef farms before taking on a commercial career. Dale attended high school in Marton where she achieved her School Certificate and also much to her family’s delight, a University Entrance. A high achiever, Dale excelled not only in the classroom but also in sport from an early age and this is an interest that has stayed with her right to today having represented her region in national Polocrosse championships and played hockey at a national level. Not content with this she has completed the Oxfam 100km Trailwalk two years in a row, competed in Bodybuilding competitions for two years and has completed numerous half marathons and tramping expeditions. Declining an opportunity to attend university, Dale’s first job was with the Bank of New Zealand where she excelled over the next 18 years working her way up through customer service, through to the international division before moving on to managing several branches. Her final role with the Bank was as a Business Analyst. Dale looks back fondly on her 18 years with the Bank which gave her a wonderful grounding in business and an opportunity to rub shoulders with some very successful people from farmers to manufacturers and international traders. She moved to Taupo in 1988 where she met Gordon, her husband, and decided to settle down and make this her home. Dale has two gorgeous girls, Ashleigh and Nicole, who are 16 and 18 and like their mum, are both keen sports people. The whole family love waterskiing in the summer months and the girls dabble in snow skiing with Dad in the winter time – but given a chance, the family would happily hop on a plane and seek out new travel destinations to explore. Twenty years in Taupo certainly credentials Dale well to advise you on Real Estate trends in the area and is a commitment that she takes on with great passion. As she has often commented to clients, she gets an enormous amount of satisfaction from being able to help people buy their dream home and through real estate her and Gordon have met some wonderful couples and made many good lifelong friends. At Harcourts, we are very aware that our reputation is based upon the skill and dedication of our people who so clearly “make the difference”. We know the service and advice you receive from our people will be of the highest order and that entrusting your real estate decisions to Dale will be in your best interests, now and in the future.

    Having moved from Auckland to Turangi in the year 2000 I happily settled with my family near the Tongariro River. We believe Turangi is the heart of the southern Lake Taupo region and is a unique area with easy access to the central mountains, lakes, and rivers. Just four hours from Auckland or from Wellington on State Highway No.1, it is semi-rural with a mixture of permanent and holiday homes. Not ready to retire, I was pleased in 2001 to join the Harcourts office in Turangi and to continue service as a salesperson until the end of 2010, when I had some rest time with a new house to build and a garden to establish. I have enjoyed living in many areas of New Zealand, including Wellington where I worked as an Associate to a Justice of the Supreme Court. After raising my family, there followed many years in the Insurance Industry in Auckland as an agent, a broker, and finally owner-operator of a specialist insurance office, which gave me valuable experience in sales. During this time, and from a very young age, music (piano in particular) has been an interest of mine. Now in 2012 I am delighted to be able to join the vibrant and professional Harcourts team in Taupo and bring their expertise to the southern lake region. During the years I have spent in Turangi I have witnessed the market change through both positive and negative stages, and my experience has enabled me to ease clients through the buying or selling process in all markets. I know that for most clients, buying or selling their home will be one of the more important decisions in life, and I see my own role as significant in helping them to arrive at the right decision.

    I commenced my real estate career in 2008, after managing the Taupo Times for many years. With a background in Sales and Marketing I understand the importance of marketing in the real estate industry, and I’ve learned the difference between what works and what doesn’t. Having been associated with Harveys (prior to our change of brand to Harcourts) both as a Buyer and a Seller for many years, I have learned that if the 3 “Ps” of Real Estate – Presentation – Promotion – Price are right, then the rest naturally follows. My family and I came to Taupo in 1995 to operate a large motel, combining business and family life in a wonderful location beside beautiful Lake Taupo. We have bought up our three children here and appreciate the great schools and leisure activities available in Taupo. Our children are now at University or off travelling the world, so I have been able to devote all my time to building my real estate career in what is widely acknowledged as a challenging market. From November 2008 until April 2011, I worked in a very successful partnership with Wendy de Haan (a top consultant with Harveys since the business started in 1998). Wendy retired from real estate in 2011, but I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to learn “the business” from such an experienced and successful agent. Wendy taught me the importance of communication, consistency and care as we helped our clients through their real estate transactions. Taupo is my home and I look forward to talking to YOU about your property and the market place that we live in, and I am proud to be part of the successful Harcourts Taupo team!
