Sales Director, Ray White Ponsonby
As the Director of Sales for Ray White Damerell Group, Belinda Henson has the opportunity to work alongside a dynamic Team that shares her passion for Real Estate and the local Ponsonby and Grey Lynn community.
Belinda began her Real Estate career after relocating from Auckland with her 2 sons to sunny Northland where she won the The Rookie of the North in her first year of Real Estate. A move in 2000 to the Bay of Islands was the perfect platform to achieve her goal to step into a Management/Mentoring role with a Team of exceptional agents in a market of high value property.
Belinda relocated back to her home in Auckland 6 years ago with her family to continue her Real Estate career, successfully managing several teams of successful agents who benefited from her critical strategic thinking around their delivery of their business to the market that encompassed the people in the market and community.
Community has always been a priority for Belinda, supporting many local organisations and sponsorship in the the local and wider community including Schools, Youth Groups, Business Development for youth in schools, Guide Dogs NZ, Make A Wish and Starship.
Belinda has always had a long term view of her Real Estate career that has extended from successfully selling to Management roles where she brings her positive attitude and experience gathered over the past 20 years to a space where she can support her team to ensure they are the very best they can be. So they can in turn deliver exceptional service and add value to the sale price for our sellers.
Her belief has always been that the measure is "to always treat others as you want to be treated." This will always provide a genuine care of our clients needs and support them with making well informed decisions that help them to aspire to their next lifestyle move.
Driven by a need to always know and learn more - Belinda completed her National Dipolma in Real Estate (AREINZ) and since then has continued to keep up her knowledge of our evolving industry with regular ongoing education to maintain a high standard Real Estate ethics in all her transactions.
Belinda's business success has been driven on a foundation of being a reliable highly motivated goal orientated person with strong time management skills and sound business acumen who is not afraid of responsibility and hard work and truly enjoys being a part of others success.
Family and looking after one another plays a strong role in Belinda's amazing energy and optimistic outlook in work and life, and her family has always supported her wholeheartedly. Time out for her to recharge is spending time with her boys and 3 wonderful grandchildren.
