I am a third generation real estate salesperson who has held a variety of sales roles with Seiko Australia Pty Ltd, Reebok (NZ) Ltd and Holdfast Ltd before embarking on my real estate career in 2001. I worked for Ray White, Hamilton as a salesperson and team leader from 2001-2009 and Lodge Real Estate, Flagstaff, Hamilton as Branch Manager 2009-2015. Lodge Flagstaff was the Number 1 office in August 2016 and Number 1 office for the quarter before my departure.


Trust in excellence from my achievements and sales results:
  • Rookie of the Year 2002
  • National Executive Member 2003 & 2006
  • National Premier Member 2004 & 2005


Good information allows for good decisions and I believe it is essential to continually improve my knowledge. With this goal in mind I have completed the following:
  • Advanced Diploma in Management 1997
  • National Certificate in Real Estate 2005
  • Branch Manager 2006
  • National Diploma In Real Estate 2007

The next step for me was to become a franchise owner and General Manager. I am proud to take over the reputation and principles of previous owners of Harcourts Waihi and Waihi Beach. My goals are to assist the offices and continue to strengthen and grow them in their region. My proudest achievement is the community spirit and involvement, family values and integrity of each and every member of your local Harcourts Gold Star Real Estate office.


We would like to personally thank Rachel for the amazing job she has done working with us over the last few months. She has supported and helped us to find our amazing first home. Being new to the process, Rachel guided and supported us along the way, always willing to be on the end of the phone or meeting with us to answer questions and put worries to rest.

We were able to have a positive experience with little stress as possible. If you’re looking at buying or selling in the near future I would recommend giving Rachel a call.

We would like to thank Rachel for her assistance in our recent purchase of a property in Athenree.

We had been searching for a suitable home in Athenree for over a year when we met Rachel. She listened well to what we required and had some immediate possibilities in mind. The property we were most interested in was being sold by auction and although we had bought other properties in the past, we had never bought at auction.

Rachel guided us through the process. She ensured that we knew our legal rights and responsibilities as well as informing us of how the auction process worked. On auction day, Rachel attended with us and asked a professional colleague to bid on our behalf. Our bid was successful and we are now settled in our retirement home.

Throughout the whole process, we found Rachel to be friendly and communicative. She walked us through the process and was helpful and knowledgeable along the way. We would heartily recommend Rachel’s services to other serious buyers.

My husband Kevin and I have moved around reasonably often in the past 20 years (or some would say UN-reasonably !!) between Australia and New Zealand and have had many opportunities to deal with various Agents in both countries. This has given us a good understanding of what makes up a good Agent or a great one.

We both firmly believe that Rachel has both the ability and the personality to become even more than great – and wish her all the success that she deserves in her future career – We are sure she will become a “Go-To” person in Real Estate for this region.

Her presentation was very professional and she has an uncanny eye for detail and really “listens” to what people say what it is they are looking for – she then just goes along and hits the target bullseye style!! Her honesty and integrity is beyond reproach.

We had an exceptional situation when going to sell and so did the new owners of this property – Rachel joined the dots and BINGO it was sold in record time (not even time to get photos done) Everyone is very happy and will recommend Rachel – in fact, people have already asked me “Who was the Agent?” Of course, I took great pleasure in telling them.
