I moved to the Kaipara area in 1999 and I have worked in the Real Estate Industry since 2002. Before Real Estate my background was banking and now after living on a farm for most of my life, I live on a lifestyle block in Matakohe. Since starting in Real Estate I have had the greatest opportunity to discover the beauty of the Kaipara, that in other professions I perhaps would have never seen. I have great pleasure in showing people that are new to the area what is on offer such as the beautiful beaches, bountiful fishing, and the rural lifestyle. I have worked for First National Roper and Jones Maungaturoto since 2011 and really enjoy the team culture of the company.

A word from Rachael.
Having spent most of my life in Dargaville, I know it's a fantastic place to live. Marco and I married in 1991 and we have 2 adult children. We spent 15 years farming north of Dargaville and then run our own truck business.

I have been selling real estate since 2006 and I have consistently proven my selling ability in all markets cycles since that time.

I believe that buying property for your family home or rental investments makes good financial sense.

Dargaville and Kaipara District is a great place to live, raise a family, and has outstanding recreational treasures.

Let me show you around my home town.
From cottages to castles I sell the lot!

Results speak for themselves.

So, if you want a no pressure, no fuss approach.

Call me and let me escort you through your next property transaction.
