Dan & Zoe have both lived and worked in the Porirua Basin for over the past 20 years and understand the region and its growing communities well.

Dan’s background in merchant banking, event management, hospitality, sponsorship, marketing and then over 10 years of owning his own businesses, gives him an ideal skill set to achieve his long term dream of selling real estate. Since qualifying in mid 2014, Dan has won numerous sales awards and has a name associated with success in Real Estate. His friendly demeanour and passion to assist his vendors has resulted in a reputation of being a trusted, respected professional with an excellent record for achieving outstanding results.

Zoe hails from the medical care industry holding many roles relating to call centre team management, customer support and facilitation of home care service nationwide. Starting her career in real estate as a P.A to Dan for two years,  Zoe then went on to train and qualify as a Licensed Real Estate Salesperson in mid 2018. Her solid researching skills, strong attention to detail and customer first attitude add to the overall strength of the team.

Having two licensed salespeople actively working as a team is a huge benefit for our clients. Dan & Zoe work tirelessly to deliver a transparent and professional service in a smart and innovative way at a fair flat fee.

What my clients say

Dan's testimonials


Thanks for the amazing support and service Tall Poppy has provided me. I am so thrilled with the result. I have found Dan and Zoe to be exceptionally professional in their approach and I am so glad I listed with them. From the very beginning, they made the process of selling stress free and achievable. I look forward to recommending them to everyone I know!


We picked Dan out of 5 other real estate agents that appraised our home. Dan stood out to us from the others as genuine and a great personality to get on with anyone! He has the gift of the gab and could sell ice to Eskimos! Thank you Dan for all the effort and get our house SOLD! You rock!


From the first contact, Dan was interested, personable and proactive. He took the time to discuss what I was wanting to achieve, and he made certain I was happy with the process. He worked really hard to get the best result and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell their property.


At a time when all the agents were focused on the sellers, Dan & Zoe took the time to listen to what we were looking for & proactively let is know and arranged for viewings as homes were listed. The homes they suggested to us fitted our requirements each time and it was clear they were listening to us, the buyers. After sales and service was also very good. Next time we are in the market, we would be sure to call on them again.

Ken & Ruth

Our selling experience with Dan & Zoe was excellent and stress free. Enjoyable working with them. Dan & Zoe's market knowledge, communication skills and professionalism could not be faulted. We were absolutely confident in their ability to give us the best sales result and this they both did. Without a doubt they are the best real estate agents we have dealt with in all our years of buying and selling property and naturally would recommend this duo to any of our family and friends to be their agents.


I can not recommend Dan & Zoe enough!! They went the extra mile to help my daughter and I into our first home. Friendly and personable service and lovely people who genuinely care. Thanks so much team !

Scott & Sheila

Dan & Zoe took on our house sale after we had been in limbo for a while, they took the time to sit down with us and explain the process in a very experienced and detailed manner which we had lacking before. We had issues which they helped us resolve in order to make the house the asset it needed to be and when it came to it, the knowledge and experience shone through - as they sold the house in the nick of time. We're very pleased to recommend Dan & Zoe. They work well as a team to achieve so much for us and anyone that take them on as a vendor. Thanks Dan and Zoe.


Met Dan and Zoe at an open home and they took me under their wing helping me search for a home for quite some time - including helping me through an unsuccessful auction attempt. Their straight forward but caring and trustworthy approach was helpful and appreciated. I would highly recommend their service.

Geoff & Stacey

I have had a number of dealings with Dan, and when selling a house he is my go to agent . There is not enough paper to write all the reasons why I think he is a great agent, but I will say a few . He is punctual , he is welcoming, he goes above and beyond to get the results you are looking for . He strives to get the best outcome at all times . I have worked with many agents and I have gained a lot of experience in dong so and one thing that I like about Dan is how genuine and honest he is and how hungry he is to seal a deal where everyone is happy . I have no time for disingenuous and cocky agents. This is why we choose Dan and highly recommend him to anybody.

Daniel & Leonie

Dan was well across the Paremata and a Porirua market and came to us with houses that met our requirements. He was diligent, thoughtful and a decent bloke to deal with.


Very friendly and listened to what I wanted and wasn't pushy at all. Recommend places for me to look at and helped me when I didn't understand something.


Dan and Zoe were both very professional through the process. While this was not my first home purchase it had been a long time between drinks. Dan stepped through the process carefully with clear guidance around legal parameters and process.

Nai & Martin

Just want to take a moment to acknowledge Dan and Zoe for their amazing work and unwavering support throughout the sale of our home. You guys were outstanding in helping us towards our dream and the next chapter of our lives. You were always professional and friendly to deal with. We trusted you and you didn't let us down. We would recommend you to everyone and anyone who are looking deal with people who are professional, honest and hardworking. Thank you Dan and Zoe!


We recently bought a property in Whitby, Porirua with the help of Dan & Zoe. I found them to be very professional and always helpful. I had lots and lots of questions to ask as a buyer. Both Dan & Zoe have been amazing in gathering all the information we needed in no time, and enabling the purchase to take place in a short time. I highly recommend Dan & Zoe. Had a very friendly experience.

Michelle & Parry

Dan and Zoe were fantastic to work with and communicated throughout the process. They explained to us exactly what would happen, answering my million and one questions. I particularly appreciated the effort they went to, to ensure our photos and video were amazing. We are stoked with the sale price too along with the fees we saved going through Tall Poppy!

Simon & Alana

Dan and Zoe were very professional and we would be happy to recommend them to others. After selling a few properties through several agents over the years, We found Dan and Zoe to be the best and over achieve my expectations.

Shaun & Claudia

Both Dan and Zoe did a fantastic job at making the purchase of our new house as painless as possible, offer a great service and expert advice along the way. Look forward to dealing with them in the future


I have bought and sold a number of properties in recent years. Without question Dan is the best agent I have dealt with. His market and local knowledge gave me great confidence in deciding to purchase my new home in Whitby. He has an extremely good communication style, combined with a professional approach, and he was always prompt in responding to my calls or messages. He and Zoe gave an excellent description of the house, the neighbourhood and the suburb, which was so important to me given that I resided in a different part of the Wellington region. Further, I have been a vendor on a number of occasions and I thought Dan represented his client with total commitment while ensuring buyer interest through excellent communication and engagement.


Dan and Zoe were easy to deal with contacted me with houses I would be interested in before they hit the market. Didn't waste my time with houses that didn't have the minimum I needed.

Simon & Alana

Was a great experience, helping us achieve the best possible price we could wish for.


Dan and Zoe produced a comprehensive and professional marketing plan that ensured mulltiple viewings and open homes culminated in several purchase offers. This hard-working pair are great agents. Top marks.


Excellent service, highly recommended.
