My background is in sales, both retail in Taupo and seven years selling property in London and the South of England. I have been a property investor since age 23 and have had a long career in retail and in investment banking. I understand how investors think.
Since moving to New Zealand in 2012 I took over a failing retail store awaiting closure and turned it around to becoming the busiest store in the country within six months. I am now applying that same energy to Real Estate.
I learned early that to be successful you must help others to succeed, put their needs above your own and be clear and honest all the time as people will be proud of their dealings with you and want to recommend you.
Selling in London and the South East of England put me in contact with a wide variety of people, from all walks of life, each of those people deserved as much respect and understanding as the next.
I also learned very quickly that if you say you will do something, it must be done.
I feel I relate to people well and I will handle your property dealings with empathy and a fun outlook, I will do my absolute best to take away the stress of one of the biggest decisions you will make.
“We sold and bought both our homes through Jay. Jay was awesome very friendly and helpful. We had a fairly long handover period and Jay was there to help out the whole time. We will definitely be seeing Jay next time we buy or sell.”

“Jay recently successfully completed the sale of our Taupo holiday home. The sale took many months longer than estimated by the solicitors and Land Transfer Office. During this time Jay kept in regular contact with all parties involved and handled the unusual situation admirably.
Jay was very easy to deal with, he gave both my wife and I the confidence to be able to travel away for three months during the sale process. He gave us regular updates by email and communicated by telephone whenever the need arose.
We have no hesitation in recommending Jay to friends and family looking to buy or sell in the Taupo area.”
Phillip J Anderson
"Jay worked tirelessly and kept us well informed, with regular updates and feedback from potential buyers. Thank you for all your help with the sale of the house. There were a few difficult moments and we know you put a lot of effort in. A property is not sold until it is unconditional and Jay will keep on it until it is done!
A good real estate agent by definition involves knowing the market, being honest, trustworthy, and a good communicator. In short, Jay is efficient, helpful and a pleasure to deal with. We personally would be very happy to recommend him as an agent and would happily use him again. We wish him well and many sales in the future."
Mr R & Mrs J Smith
"It was a pleasure to work with Jay whilst searching for a property in Taupo.
He was professional, informative and worked very hard for us in order for us to achieve our dream of owning a property.
Jay made our property search experience fun, stress free and enjoyable. He kept us up to date through the whole process and worked hard on our behalf to secure the deal!
He always followed through with what he promised and was honest and upfront at all times.
I would highly recommend Jay to assist with any of your future property purchases or sales."
"Jay was full of energy and easy to deal with. He made the purchase process quite easy and we appreciate his time and effort."
