I moved from the UK in 1999 and love the New Zealand way of life. The saying "home is where the heart is” is far more than the place you are born. It’s the people who make up your life, the home you do life in, and the community you connect with. Having moved a number of times over the years, I know what I want in a home, and the deep feeling when you walk into the house that you know is meant to be yours, is not to be taken lightly. Knowing my own feelings, I am passionate about helping people find the homes that they dream of, therefore, marketing your property will be more than just a job.
I have worked with many people over the years, in schools, in hospitals, in churches and in public services. I am a people person and love to meet and connect with people. I am a mum to four wonderful children; I have a gorgeous grandson and a beautiful granddaughter too; and I have a husband that loves and supports me in everything I do.
I totally believe the 'Tall Poppy Way' is a great way to market and sell your property and would love to help you experience this.
Fantastic. We have just today, gone unconditional on our home. Our gratitude to Jane for going above and beyond for us as we navigated a tricky situation, is beyond words. From our first meeting, Jane has proved to be honest, knowledgeable about the market conditions, and a positive voice when the anxiety of selling a much loved home threatened to overcome us. Jane's empathy when dealing with us has been incredible and we regard her as a friend now. ❤️ Thanks for everything Jane. I actually have tears in my eyes as I write this.

I contacted Jane at Tall Poppy when I had decided to sell my much loved home and relocate. Jane came to my home and provided a comprehensive appraisal based on local sales and listing information. Jane lives in Omokoroa and had local knowledge about the area and what it had to offer buyers. She had great communication skills, always keeping me up to date with the process. I trusted her knowledge & expertise would get me over the line, and guess what? It did! My home sold in a week!
Very good experience. Jane handled the sale of my house with complete professionalism and kindness and was very understanding and listened carefully to my thoughts through the process, giving me sound advice when needed.
We found Jane very easy to deal with. She always got back to us promptly and answered any questions we had. We would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.

I was extremely happy with Jane's service. Jane was professional and knowledgeable but also made it feel personal and friendly making it an enjoyable experience all round. There was communication each step of the way keeping me fully informed and able to ask any questions I had.
Jane was great from the start. Answered all the questions and gave us the correct information. Jane did not set false expectations and sold the house in less than 2 weeks.
I found Jane Cross to be naturally interested therefore providing good information, in-sighted confidence for a future investment.
When we decided to put our house on the market we spoke with several agents before deciding to engage Jane and Tall Poppy. Jane brought her knowledge of the local market, including recent changes in the market and in buyer preferences to the table. Importantly she worked collaboratively with us to use this information to formulate a sales strategy we were comfortable with to achieve the best result in what was a dynamic market. Once we were up and running Jane was in contact regularly to make sure buyers had every opportunity to see the property at its best. She kept us informed of the results of any viewings and followed up with all interested parties to make sure they remained engaged, a strategy that saw our property sold relatively quickly in the current market. Always positive and professional Jane was a pleasure to work with and we are happy to recommend her. Thanks again.
We first met Jane while looking at an open home We found her to be very professional in everything she did One thing that stands out for us is every question we had she came back with an answer immediately She really did go the extra mile without being too pushy Really enjoyed working with Jane and would recommend her as an excellent salesperson

She guided us through the process with understanding and patience and went above and beyond in finding answers to questions we had. We totally, 100% recommend her.

Jane personally was so easy to deal with and followed up, and still is, on all my many queries, without hesitation and always got back to me straight away. She made me feel special and went beyond and above for me. I found her very honest and one of the nicest agents I have had dealings with the many times over the years. I will recommend Jane to anyone that is enquiring about property.
From the time we met Jane we felt connected. Her manner was very pleasant and professional. Nothing seemed too much trouble. As out of town buyers, this was really appreciated. Follow up back to us was very quick on any queries. We felt valued as clients and we would recommend her to both buyers and sellers .

Junne and Ian
We were looking at houses through Tall Poppy Omokoroa and while visiting an open home we met Jane Cross. We gave Jane an Idea of what we wanted and were looking for, she immediately said I am doing an open home down the road, I think you will like it. WOW, it was exactly what we were looking for. And we loved it. This proves to me that, Jane listened to us and got a good understanding of what we wanted. Jane followed up with us a day or so after and we said we would like to put an offer on that house. We kept in touch with Jane and she made us feel great, and she was very helpful right the way through. As we were about to move in, after our final inspection, Jane phoned to say she was not happy with the cleanliness of the house and was going to get it sorted. She did exactly that. We were so grateful, and I ask you, how many agents would do, what Jane did for us? Not to mention the gifts and the lovely presented key box. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jane as an agent to anybody.
An easy experience, great communication.
Jane kept us informed weekly on any updates, communication was excellent, contact at anytime was professional and friendly. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to sell.
It was a pleasure working with Jane on the purchase of our new house I found Jane to be conscientious and honest in her approach to working with us. She kept us informed and gave us access to all of the information we needed to make our decision but never harried or rushed us. I think she represented her vendor well but also considered our needs too - which ultimately means we were all happy.
Trevor Deane & Helen Osborne
When we were ready to sell I contacted Jane. She spent so much time working out the best way to get the best price for us. Jane did an amazing job selling our house. I would recommend Jane to anyone wanting to sell. The connection makes you feel that she is not only a Real Estate agent but a friend.
Jane has been amazing, she knew that we were first home buyers and went beyond to give us information so that we were well prepared. We found Jane a pleasure to work with and would recommend anyone to work with her. We couldn't be more happy with the service that Jane has given us and we felt like she was in our corner the whole way through the process. We could definitely work with Jane again.
