HR and Admin Manager, Ray White Takanini
A perfectly rhyming name aside, it’s no coincidence that Faye White has re-joined the Ray White Sue Douglas Group for the second time in her working career.
Her considerable organisational skills and work ethic were evident in her role as a personal assistant to her husband, Phil, while he was employed at Ray White in the 2000s. Sue Douglas and her well-regarded business partner at the Takanini branch, Peter Belcher, were excited to offer Faye a chance to be part of their team again, this time as Executive Assistant to Peter Belcher himself.
Faye has accumulated a wealth of experience in many roles since she left school, including banking, administration, accounts, customer services, data entry and database management. Even while her kids were growing up, she worked as a teacher aide and volunteered on the P.T.A. and various fundraising committees for 16 years.
Notably, her resume shows a strong leaning towards real estate. With over five years of learning about the industry as Phil’s P.A., she sat her papers to become a salesperson in 2008, allowing her to experience an entirely different facet of the property world. Faye eventually found she preferred the operations side of the business, and spent three years working in the administration and accounts department of a real estate agency in Manukau.
Her most important role as a mother is not to be underestimated, either. Principal Sue Douglas’ opinion is that anyone who is capable of working and diligently parenting four children is quite plainly an organisational expert. Faye agrees, saying that she seems to fill the role of “Camp Mother” wherever she goes, due to her advanced listening skills, open-mindedness, ability to offer constructive advice and solutions, and naturally caring instincts.
As you might expect, it’s her children and husband who give her the happiest times. In fact, one of her personal measures of success is her capacity to bring up responsible adults who contribute to society while maintaining healthy relationships with them. She adores travelling, especially to places with significant history and culture, and happily states she has no regrets in life.
