The Coromandel has always been a huge part of my life as my family has bought one of the first sections available at Whangapoua Beach (when beachfront sections were $1800!) Three generations of my family have holidayed and lived at the bach over the years and thoroughly enjoyed fishing, diving, surfing and the of course the stunning scenery. I missed the Coromandel beaches so much on my OE, my Dad posted me a scallop shell full of crystal white Whangapoua sand wrapped up in gladwrap!
My husband and twin boys moved here permanently in 2008 and when an opportunity came up to get involved with real estate in the area, I jumped at the chance. I love checking out other people's houses, styles and interiors - and convincing people that Coromandel is the best place to be, is certainly not hard for me!
I love working with people (I'm a bit of a chatterbox if truth be known) and helping people through their journey of buying or selling property is challenging but ultimately very satisfying. No two situations are the same and you meet such a diverse bunch of people with all manner of interesting lives. The best result for me is having people thrilled with property they have just bought and the sellers happy, satisfied and excited about moving onto the next part of their story.
My biggest priority is the people who have listed their property with me - I keep in good contact with them, give them a written report each week and make sure they are in touch with what is going on in the market. I am very tenacious and make sure I follow up every avenue of enquiry until it has come to its conclusion. I want my clients to know that I never forget who I am working for and I will be straight up with them at all times.
Feel free to talk to me about either buying or selling property here in the gorgeous Coromandel - I will always be doing the best job I can.
The whole team has been steadily busy through the end of summer into the Autumn. Corporate has reported back that Ray White have 30% market share in Whitianga so we have a strong hold and a good reputation in this area. The team is continuing to grow which is another positive for us. We have also found that many other companies are coming to our listings as we have one of the best selection of properties listed in the area. We are happy to work with other companies to get the job done with a happy vendor and a 'SOLD' sticker in place. Our auction rooms are being put to good use and they are a great bill board for people who want to to have a browse at property with no pressure.
Tara goes the extra mile and listens to what you want and gives insightful and relevant ideas. She's enthusiastic and a pleasure to work with.
Kylie & Jason (Vendors) - Whitianga
She is bright and friendly, listens to what you have to say and is very encouraging.
Brian & Margaret (Vendors) - Whitianga
She listened, then went to work efficiently without a whole lot of fuss and kept us fully informed as to what was happening all the way through. Didn't hesitate to bring another agent in to the loop if they had someone showing interest. In other words she put our needs first , NOT HERS.
Craig (Vendor - Whitianga
Communicated well, friendly, professional, organised
Tara was outstanding to deal with - professional, thorough, communicative and honest
Baz & Di (Vendors
Tara was a pleasure to deal with. Related to our personal wishes in the way we liked to deal with people, and with that, was very professional also. Through selling our property and buying another, we were always kept well informed about matters and nothing was an effort for her. Tara was very easy to trust and bond with, and because of that, we have had hesitation in recommending her to many of our friends. You are lucky to have her in your team - : )
Ivy & Den (Vendors)
Tara was a delight - professional in every way and her marketing skills were 'first class'. Tara took care of absolutely everything and left us 'worry free'. She went above and beyond the call of duty. Tara has a really good reputation in Whitianga. If ever there were 'Gold Awards' being given out, then Tara would be 'Top of the List'.
Shirley & Dalwaith (Vendors)
I want to acknowledge the tireless work that Tara Corley put into selling my property. She is constantly optimistic and energetic. Nothing is too much trouble to her. I felt completely comfortable with the way I was kept informed at every step with updates on buyer interest, and comments on what the buyers were really wanting. This was a difficult property to sell, partly because it was a cross lease. Tara never gave up, never even slackened off her grip on the bit between her teeth. She was determined to sell. And I am so happy with her performance and the result. She deserved every cent of her commission. I would confidently recommend her to anyone.
