  • Andrew Smith

    Andrew Smith

    Licensed Real Estate Consultant

    My interest in property started at an early age as I grew up assisting and working alongside my family who carried out a lot of developments from subdividing, renovating and completing new builds. I grew to have more of an appreciation for the work that was involved in these projects. Seeing them all come together in the end after endless amounts of planning, is where my passion for Real Estate first stemmed from. I learnt that Real Estate is not just about the physical appearance, but the passion people have for their property. I consider myself a natural communicator, a car enthusiast, a lover of outdoor activities such as trout fishing and I enjoy going bush. I have extensive local knowledge of the Ashhurst and Manawatu area so joining Harcourts Team Manawatu was an easy decision given they are New Zealand’s most Trusted Brand and sell all types of property, from Residential, Lifestyle to Rural and Commercial. I want your next Real Estate transaction to be a memorable one, I want you to enjoy the progression from start to finish, and most importantly I want your experience to be fun – you will have a lasting impression of your sale or purchase, and I look forward to being part of process.

    Andrew Whiteley

    Licensed Real Estate Consultant

    I started my working life with training at Flock House and went on to be a Dairy Farmer for almost 20 years, including 3 years in the UK. When I decided it was time for a change I progressed into sales which involved spending the next 12 years working with the farming community all over the Manawatu and beyond. My jobs entailed working with farmers in both milking systems and dairy nutrition. During this time working out individual needs of farmers within the rural industry I have built a network that covers the whole of New Zealand. I have a real passion for the rural lifestyle and take pride in doing the best for all my clients. My background and knowledge and contacts gained over the years means I can understand your needs and achieve the best results possible whether you are buying or selling a farm or lifestyle property. My family and I love the Manawatu and are now based in Palmerston North with the kids attending local schools. I have a wide range of interests from cars to rugby and from rowing to horses but most of all … farming.

  • Carole Hoffman

    Carole Hoffman

    Licensed Real Estate Consultant

    I started my real estate career in 2001 and in that time I have gained a wealth of knowledge and in my experience two things are crucial to achieving a positive outcome and satisfied clients - Empathy and trust - the ability to relate well to people, advise clients credibly and ‘manage’ the sale process carefully to minimise anxiety and stress to sellers and buyers. I possess the knowledge and enthusiasm to provide you with these skills, while still acting in your best interests. - Expertise and experience - especially the skill with which an agent can efficiently structure, negotiate and close a deal that benefits all parties. My success in real estate is based on a background that includes a career in a multi-national accounting firm, as North Island Manager, plus two years working in a business that my husband, Andrew, still operates. This professional background has given me a range of people, business, marketing and negotiating skills, all of which I use to assist clients like you to buy and sell homes smoothly and successfully. In March 2015 I joined forces with Richard Jensen and Sarah Nolan. I’m thrilled to be working as part of an extremely dedicated sales team that provides an extremely high level of knowledge and experience that without doubt enhances the superior service and skills that we can offer to valued people such as you. Selling your home is an important decision and I am dedicated to creating clients for life. My high level of referrals and repeat business is testament to this. I enjoy the daily challenges and rewards of real estate and I’m proud to be associated with the very successful Harcourts culture.
