Born and raised in Shanghai-China I first came to New Zealand to study Business and Sports Management at Massey University in 2002. After 7 years of study and work in Palmerston North, I left New Zealand for Shanghai to pursue new business ventures.
I have broad experience across different aspects of real estate and property investment including working as a relocation consultant and owning my own business consulting company. I worked closely with property developers in Shanghai, providing marketing and promotional services to them for a number of years. I’ve also had a couple of successful property investments in past years, which helped with my knowledge in property marketing.
My wife and I have now relocated back to Palmerston North with our young daughter, we just love it here in Palmy and great Manawatu!
I’ve always had a great passion for people. After 15 years in sales/customer service locally and internationally, I found that real estate is a natural fit for me, as it’s all about helping people. I also speak fluent Mandarin, Cantonese, and Shanghainese. I am your local go-to property consultant in the Chinese community too.
I am aiming to bring exceptional results and service to my clients – whether they are vendors looking for a dream result, first home buyers, or investment property hunters.
Outside of real estate, I love to spend time with family and friends. I have been playing football for almost all my life, so I will see you down at the field on Saturday or at an open home on Sunday! Let me score that goal for you.
Eric and Waston helped us with our current house two years ago. It's super value we got. They have been following up with us asking if we have any issues and offered help when needed. Can't appreciate the team more.
They had finished a free valuation for our house recently giving us clearer idea of the property value with their valuable advice.
Highly recommend them!
I’m very happy to choose Watson real estate to help me with my property. Eric is a very professional and friendly agent. Helped me a lot with his experience and it’s a pleasure for me to work with such a nice guy.
