Margaret Simpson

Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Remuera

Margaret carved out a formidable and highly successful marketing career for herself in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry. She was a highly respected marketing and promotional manager for New Zealand's number one healthcare distributor. Her business expertise and experience in sales negotiation, marketing, communication, major event and people management prepared her well for the competitive real estate industry.

Her contribution to the Pharmaceutical industry cannot be underestimated and her talent of “thinking outside the box” created some ground-breaking marketing concepts that were unheard of at the time.

Outside of real estate, Margaret has been a highly competitive provincial golfing representative for over 15 years, and has also selected and managed very successful representative teams and still plays competitive golf.

In 2004 she was seeking new challenges and joined Ray White Ellerslie, and then spent the following 5 years building a successful real estate business attaining Premier Status very quickly.

In 2010 following time spent with another brand, Margaret joined forces with Robin McDowall and bought Ray White Epsom. With managerial experience, corporate marketing skills and an intuitive grasp of what people want, she never looked back and since then she and Robin have become a remarkable team.

Following the sale of the Ray White Epsom business, Margaret and Robin joined Ray White Broadway. Two and half years down the track they moved up the road to link arms with the Ray White Remuera team and now thoroughly enjoy selling in many of Auckland’s central and outlying suburbs.

Margaret believes her success is due in part to her networking and connecting skills, her determination to prove herself, her ability to listen, communicate, put her clients first and her longevity in the real estate industry. Working well under pressure with a “can-do” attitude to life – Margaret is the classic high achieving competent competitor – just the person you want in your corner.

We recently selected Margaret to market and sell our home. She provided a comprehensive range of marketing options, and through her experience and advice we chose a short auction marketing campaign. The marketing campaign was very successful; attracting a level of interest that far exceeded our expectations. The unique features of our home were presented through some superb photography and commentary through the various advertisements. The marketing period was managed so as to be as pain free as possible for us, our young family and pets, and the result of the campaign was a sale under the hammer at a level well beyond what we had hoped for. The conscientious approach and follow up to the groups that visited throughout the open homes, helped to ensure a large turn out on auction day, with many interested bidders. We were very grateful for the attention to detail, regular contact, and the level of reporting, along with the advice and guidance received throughout the process. We highly recommend and would have no hesitation in recommending Margaret to anyone contemplating selling their home.

I think that you only get the measure of a person when the chips are down, and I think the sale of my property must have been one of the most difficult sales possible. You showed your true colours, grit and sales skills and I whole heartedly recommend you to anyone considering an estate agent.

Dear Margaret I selected you to achieve the sale of my home because I decided to consider the process from a business point of view and I was most impressed with your professionalism, knowledge and advice. You quickly determined there were compliance matters I had been unaware of and that needed to be resolved prior to the marketing process. You then supported me through the required steps. I was somewhat anxious about the auction process having had a bad experience several years ago, but your support and very committed approach to the marketing period, resulted in a successful sale and a relatively hassle free experience for myself. I have had no hesitation in recommending you to my friends and associates and will continue to do so. Kind regards Carol Pollock

Dear Margaret and Robin Thank you very much for your hard work when it came to the sale of our home in New Zealand recently. We found that you were extremely responsive whenever we needed to get in touch with you with phone calls and emails returned promptly at all times. We really appreciated you going 'that extra mile' in getting the property ready for sale. As we live in Australia, it was wonderful to be able to leave the house in your capable hands for cleaning, gardens, tidying up etc. You provided us with competitive quotes and made all the arrangements, which really assisted us. The objective feedback regarding the market and prices was very helpful for us being able to decide on a reserve price – we did not have unrealistic expectations, so managed to achieve a good sale. Your reports were concise and relevant, which for busy people is very much appreciated. Finally, you were both very positive and a pleasure to work with. Thanks again

Dr and Mrs Kroon
