Local Proppy Expert, Tauranga

After 30 years as a Medical Microbiologist and living in Auckland, I felt the need for a new challenge in my life.

Real Estate has always been at the top of my list, I am thrilled to have completed the course which I thoroughly enjoyed and am super excited about what the future may bring!

I bring many attributes to the profession. My confident, outgoing, and friendly personality is one of my strongest qualities allowing me to develop strong working relationships with people to gain their trust. I have great work ethic and time management skills. I am loyal, trustworthy, highly organised and am great at problem solving. I will always provide the most up-to-date and accurate information and sound real estate advice to my colleagues, clients and customers. I will continually research new technology and ideas to help improve and make selling and buying a home easier, faster and an even more positive experience. These values are what make me stand out as a Real Estate Professional and drive me to become the best within my chosen career path.

Lance Mitchell
Rodney Area Manager

His approachable style makes him easy to work with and his keen awareness of the situation helps find solutions where others see obstacles. Since leaving the UK nearly 20 years ago, yes, a Pom but definitively not a winging one – he has thoroughly embraced & enjoyed the Kiwi way of life.

For a solution focused agent look no further, once you’ve got me on your side I don't let go until the deal is done!

Terry Smith
Hamilton Area Manager

The first thing you need to know about Terry is that he is much more than just a real estate agent. Yes, he enjoys the autonomy, the ebb and flow, the unique situations to be problem solved, and the interesting people he’s made friends with along the way, but ultimately that’s not what drives him. So what makes Terry tick?

Terry's an actively and enthusiastically involved grandfather living on a small lifestyle block with gardens, pets, and stock.

Terry is one of those rare souls with enough self-awareness to know we can sometimes allow our identity and fulfillment to become entwined in our work to our detriment. Being a typically private and reserved Englishman, what he won’t tell you is that what really drives him is helping others. A long time supporter of World Vision, W.A.S.P., S.P.C.A., and the NZ Blood Service among others, in the past he was also the trust chairperson for Interactive (formerly Hamilton Sheltered Workshop). He also started a successful manufacturing business which he’s now handed onto his two son’s as a legacy for the future. And therein lies the key to what makes Terry tick, it’s not just selling houses, it’s legacy. It’s often said that the truth is found in holding two extremes in tension. In this case, Terry is not overly concerned with what people think of him, while at the same time, he believes he’ll find his best self by focussing more on what he wants to become known for. I think we could all spend more time pondering this. Terry’s reputation is more important that his income or the next deal.


Terry has consistently been helping people to sell their homes using the value driven approach in order to generate higher prices while reducing the cost of selling by thousands. More importantly for Terry’s family though, his work is now more fulfilling, balance has been restored and the mission of redeeming a once negative-reputation industry in Hamilton is well and truly underway. And that's good news for everyone.

Cathie Geard
Coromandel Area Manager

Five years ago, my husband and I threw a dart at the New Zealand map after deciding we wanted to leave the big city. The result was us relocating to Tairua on the Coromandel Peninsula. Our lives are significantly better for making that decision as this part of the country is exquisitely beautiful, full of amazing locations and homes, and from our experience we enjoy encouraging others to either live or spend their precious holidays on this amazing peninsular.

When I started in the Real Estate industry, I was under the assumption I could make a difference in my clients lives by providing quality service while utilising my passion for property and marketing. What I found, however, was that the old school real estate system was burdened with paperwork, unnecessary stress and clients who felt they were not getting good bang for their buck.

When I discovered Proppy, I realised that this revolutionary platform was just what clients were asking for. This system has turned the stuffy difficult legalities into something simple and manageable, putting the client back in full control of buying or selling their most valuable asset. The process speaks for itself - once you have purchased or sold a home through Proppy, you really won't want to do it any other way. Call me, I'd be happy to share more details about this exciting system for selling your property here in the Coromandel.

Jon Woodcock
Tauranga Area Manager

I owe my successful sales career to what some might consider an unconventional upbringing. I grew up in the service and sales industry in the UK, then spent my early teens traveling around and residing in numerous countries within Europe, finally settling in the Spanish Province of Andalucia. During that time, I met and sought advice from many successful business people from all walks of life, whose experience I took and used in my own business dealings over the years. My experiences in investing and new home builds has lead me to the real estate industry, which, over the past few years, I have established a sound reputation of being honest and working with integrity. Being a people person, I build and maintain strong working relationships with each and every client. It gives me great pleasure to negotiate a fair deal and a successful sale. My goal is for my clients to feel comfortable and excited throughout the buying and/or selling process.

Jason Penny
Hamilton Area Manager

I am a passionate practitioner in the art of promoting the property. After seven years in the industry, it's important for me to keep asking if the world still needs real estate agents. In 2018, the answer is still yes. But things have changed. A lot. Proppy is the way of the future and I am excited to be part of the team and to improve the way my clients buy and sell real estate.

I've learned over the years that there are only three key questions in selecting your agent;

1. How well will they present my property to the world?

2. Can they show a good track record of negotiating skills for their last 20 sales?

3. Can they justify their fees?

I'm confident in answering these questions because I love efficiency. My goal is to work smarter to save you money. The fact is, I've spent the past few years fine-tuning a method of selling houses that have quietly saved my clients over $180,000 collectively, compared to traditional fees, while still getting great results.

I enjoy a happy life in Fairfield with my beautiful wife and three awesome kids, and drive around in a shiny Toyota. I can quite often be found at the happeningest cafe in town, Yalla Yalla Cafe. Call me to find out how to get the job done better, for less, by someone who's bothered to look behind the green curtain.
