About Rachael

After nearly 20 years of living in North Canterbury, I absolutely consider myself a local and can’t imagine ever heading back ‘over the bridge’ away from such an amazing place to live.

I came to real estate after a successful career in Corporate IT, followed by time managing our family business.

Bringing over 20 years of high-level project and personnel management experience into real estate means that my clients benefit from a truly collaborative approach that delivers open, honest and clear communication to ensure everyone is well-informed and that every step of the buying or selling process is as simple and stress-free as it can be.

Balancing the process and order with a natural curiosity about people and a genuine desire to really understand what’s most important to them, my clients can have complete trust in knowing I truly care about getting them the best outcomes to allow them to move forward.

As a Business Owner with Tall Poppy I am committed to delivering our promise of exceptional customer service and a safe and transparent trading space for sellers and buyers.

If you're looking for a different, better real estate experience than those you have experienced before, I know we can deliver the results and would love the opportunity to discuss how we do that with you.
