About me

After 13 years in Australia, managing a successful commodities trading desk for a large multi-national company on the east coast of Australia, part of the Senior Management Team and reporting to Australian Securities & Investment Commission (ASIC), it was time to come home. My children had just started primary school, so we took the opportunity to relocate to Queenstown and let them grow up in the best place in the world, so a new career beckoned.

Real estate seemed similar to trading, and with my excellent negotiation skills, seemed like the ideal move, and now I am loving it. I have worked with some great agents, but always thought this was an inefficient industry that could be improved. I started talking to the owners of Tall Poppy and found that our philosophy was aligned, so decided to buy the Queenstown Franchise where we can offer awesome service with the latest technology and marketing techniques at the lowest price.

Attitude and people, this is what makes a company great and when you choose the best people, you will have the best company. I am looking forward to building an amazing team in Queenstown, working closely with Head Office/owners and taking on “normal real estate”, changing the way people think about our industry and continue building Tall Poppy as a trusted and respected brand so that people can fully engage with our team and get the best results, and have fun doing it at the same time.

Tall Poppy, challenging the conventional.
