I have joined Watson Real Estate after 25 years of management in the office equipment and IT industry.
After a quarter of a century of delivering high quality sales and service solutions the transition to real estate will be both a challenge and a pleasure.
As a local businessman I have worked with Watson Real Estate both as a supplier of equipment and service to the thriving real estate firm but also as a partner in sponsoring Football from Youngheart Manawatu through to the successful Marist football team currently competing in the Federation League.
Many people will know me from my time at Ricoh NZ as well as my work with local community groups, Marist sports club, Ethkick tournament and other local organisations.
I really enjoyed my time with Ricoh, and this culminated in my team winning the mid-sized Business of the year category at the Westpac business awards in 2018.
Offering an inclusive approach, Watson Real Estate appealed as a company with similar shared values and a strong ethics-based business model.
I am joining the family-owned business at an interesting time. The real estate market is a lively place to do business and with Watson Real Estate excelling in Property Management as well as property sales, I will look to use all my skills to see Watsons move to the next level of performance.
The opportunity to join a company like Watson Real Estate is one I could not turn down.
The Family values and high levels of professionalism displayed by the team at Watson Real Estate have impressed me from the moment I arrived, and I look forward to helping our people link with owners and tenants.
Watson Real Estate will be looking to grow the team both here in Palmerston North and in Feilding and Whanganui, so if you would like to have a chat about your future, feel free to contact me.
