WHAT IS IT ABOUT HEATHER BENSON……………….

she’s BZZZY selling real estate ! -  (or so says her number plate) Look out for the bright Yellow Kea Soul - you can't miss it!

We are told to always write in the “third person” when compiling a profile or bio - well do you know what, I think that is kind of silly don’t you.  If I am explaining to you what I can offer when dealing with your real estate matters, it seems strange to say “she”.  My Mother always taught me, that “She” was the Mothers’ Cat!!

So, Hi I am Heather Benson.  I live in Whitianga, and have done for the past 14 years.  I truly enjoy and love this Mercury Bay area, my favourite places being Otama, Opito Bay and Matapaua Bay.  I feel very lucky and privileged to live in such a beautiful part of our magnificent country.  They say that you go back to your roots, well I was born here many years ago, in Thames - funny old world isn’t it - here I am ..after having lived in many NZ locations, and also overseas.

For most of my working life I have been involved in sales and marketing,  I chose real estate as a means to earn a living here in Whitianga because I really do enjoy people and I have an easy rapport with people of all ages and from all walks of life.  I believe in building trust and rapport, and that’s what I set out to do.  I believe also in integrity, truth, honesty and fair dealings with all whom I meet in my life.

Family and friends are far more important to me than monetary gain and fancy possessions.  However, that was a lesson hard learnt in the past, and being able to live in the now and be thankful is a wonderful motivator. I am not motivated by money, isn’t that a strange thing to say - but its true.  I am however, motivated by meeting the challenges of real estate, and getting the job done to the happy satisfaction of all parties.

I guess it is the satisfaction of a job well done that motivates me to the next challenge.  The many people I have dealt with over the past 16 years in real estate have given me joy in the simple things - like “thank you” when they find the home they have been looking for, or when I have been able to complete a successful negotiation to achieve a sale for them. They are sweet words when I work so hard, with my clients best interests’ at heart.

So what do you get when you work with me.  Always fun and laughter, I try to live each day to the fullest and I am a happy person;  always the truth - and that is hard sometimes when I tell you  I consider your property to be valued at less than you think - but I know the buyers’ expectations, so why disappoint you by “talking up” your property to a value that is unrealistic.

Buyers: I will listen to you, source properties for you, offer you some alternatives that you may not be aware of, take time to get to understand your requirements. I will tell you any unusual aspects of a property, and I will show you the properties you have given me a brief for, and not the higher priced ones.  How frustrating to be shown a property that you love - outside of your price range !! Why would I do that to you or to the seller??

Sellers: I will be honest in my feedback, and not waste your time on unnecessary and irrelevant information. My goal is to sell your property for the best price I can achieve in the present market, in a time frame that suits you, to a fully qualified and genuine buyer.

Have fun, enjoy your Real Estate journey with me,

Heather.
