About Kristian

In 2020 I moved to Real Estate after working as a frontline police officer for 14 years, and I've loved working with so many great clients and customers since then. Fast-forward to the beginning of 2024 and I've sold over 50 properties, all around Christchurch and the wider Canterbury area.

It's been amazing being able to help young people into their first home, and vendors achieve results above their expectations. I’ve lived in Canterbury all my life, and remember what it was like purchasing my first property back in 2003. I remember the feeling of uncertainty I experienced the first time I sold a property and know the impact a good salesperson can make in guiding clients through the sales process. I really believe in the Tall Poppy model and look forward to providing great service to my clients, without the traditional hefty fee.

I’ve worked in a variety of industries over the years with a broad range of people, from the freezing works, to hospitality and as a police officer. I’m competitive by nature, having represented Canterbury in Softball, and don’t shy away from a hard day’s work. I am familiar with relating to a wide range of people and my police background has helped me develop a breadth of soft skills: tough negotiation, engaging people in dialogue, and getting to the heart of determining what people really want and what their motivations are.

The service I provide is friendly and unique, and as many past clients have mentioned I am "not the stereotypical real estate agent”.I really enjoy the grind and am working hard to build my business and create long lasting relationships in the process. In my spare time you will see me walking our fur baby at the closest dog park and out spending time with family and friends at cafes and restaurants. A fun fact about me - I am a foodie at heart and have organised a lot of travel over the last few years around food. If you don’t want to talk property, lets talk food and travel! I look forward to sitting down over a coffee with you to discuss how we can turn better work stories into successful sales stories.
