  • Colleen White

    Colleen White

    Turangi & Southern Lake Taupo Sales Consultant (Licensed Salesperson REAA 2008)

    Having moved here from Auckland in the year 2000 my family happily settled near the Tongariro River as we felt Turangi is the heart of the Southern Lake Taupo Region 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 charmingly semi-rural with a mixture of permanent and holiday homes. I have enjoyed living in many areas of New Zealand, including Wellington as 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. Not ready to retire, in 2001 I decided to enter the Real Estate industry and gained considerable experience selling around Turangi & the Southern Lakes region. I joined Harcourts Taupo in 2010 and I have enjoyed working with their dynamic professional team, bringing their expertise to the Southern end of the Great Lake. During the years I have spent in Turangi I have witnessed the market go through many ups and downs (as most areas do), and my experience has enabled me to ease clients through the buying & selling process in all these times.

  • Dale Maisey

    Dale Maisey

    Residential Sales Consultant (Licensed Salesperson REAA 2008)

    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 spent several years away due to studies, sport, work and family commitments in Europe and France in particular, returning to an unpopulated peaceful paradise (The Southern Lakes) was an easy choice.

    Jay Simpson

    Residential Sales Consultant (Licensed Salesperson REAA 2008)

    My background is in sales, both retail in Taupo and seven years selling property in London and the South of England. I have been a property investor since age 23 and have had a long career in retail and in investment banking. I understand how investors think. Since moving to New Zealand in 2012 I took over a failing retail store awaiting closure and turned it around to becoming the busiest store in the country within six months. I am now applying that same energy to Real Estate. I learned early that to be successful you must help others to succeed, put their needs above your own and be clear and honest all the time as people will be proud of their dealings with you and want to recommend you. Selling in London and the South East of England put me in contact with a wide variety of people, from all walks of life, each of those people deserved as much respect and understanding as the next. I also learned very quickly that if you say you will do something, it must be done. I feel I relate to people well and I will handle your property dealings with empathy and a fun outlook, I will do my absolute best to take away the stress of one of the biggest decisions you will make.

    Voted 2012 - 2013 NAI Harcourts National Rising Star! Taupo really is the perfect town isn't it? There are endless opportunities for fishing, boating and swimming in the crystal clear waters of the lake and rivers. The varied forests, mountains and thermal features surrounding Taupo provide all of the tramping, camping and cycling outlets one could imagine. Even in the winter there is a flurry of activity just a short drive from town on the world class ski slopes of Mt. Ruapehu. The town itself has excellent restaurants, unique shops, great schools, friendly people and a lovely atmosphere to suit the whole family. That's why after immigrating to New Zealand from the United States my wife and I have chosen to settle here. If you love the outdoors you will love Taupo! In the Real Estate industry there are a few very important traits that one must have to provide the best service to their clients.
