So many people have decided to sell up in the city, buy Wanaka property and move south in the past year. The recent lifestyle learnings have centered around working remotely.

Property Search Agent – Wanaka and Queenstown

Imagine finding a property that ticks more boxes than you even thought were possible. Having an overview across the entire market, both listed, advertised and not, with experience in what could be on offer, what works and what doesn’t allows options to be identified and more doors opened.

Buying New Zealand property

I specialize in New Zealand property acquisition and focus on Wanaka property with a colleague working on Arrowtown and Queenstown property search, analysis, purchase and relocation projects.
