Originally from Auckland, Jude has owned property and resided on the island for the last 22 years.
Her working career prior to real estate was in the travel industry, in a range of roles both sales and marketing orientated.
She joined Harcourts in 2006 just prior to the Global Financial Crisis. The climate at the time, while tough suited her personal style and approach as she is very empathetic to people’s situations.
In January 2011 she joined Waiheke Real Estate who was celebrating their 50th year being a small independent agency on the island with a well-earned local reputation for both their respected staff and outstanding sales record.
She prides herself on doing a professional job and takes her responsibilities seriously while enjoying the relationships she forms with vendors and buyers. Many start as strangers and end up as friends.
She enjoys the diversity of doing real estate on Waiheke, the cross section of people and property.

In 2008, Paul quit his job as a senior research chemist/project manager, and embarked on a trip around New Zealand “finding himself”
After 7 months of helping to build straw bale, and mud-brick houses all over the country, he found his way to Waiheke.
Every day Paul feels incredibly lucky to have ended up on such a beautiful island and to do something for a living that he has been passionate about for his entire life… He bought his first investment property at the age of 20.
Paul says, starting a new career in real estate at a time when nobody was buying property (in the midst of a global financial crisis) was the best thing he could have done. He learned the hard way and quickly became one of the islands top salespeople. He has continued to be a top performer ever since.
One of the things Paul is most proud of, and is very grateful for, is the amount of referrals and repeat business he receives, as that is the best compliment you can get.
If you are looking for an energetic agent with the highest ethical standards, who will always put you first, work hard (and smart), and achieve great results, get in touch with Paul for a confidential chat.
Tom is one of the senior sales people on the island having moved into real estate in 2005 and working with the then Ray White franchise on the island. Since 2006 he has served as a Licensed Sales Consultant as Waiheke Real Estate.
Previous to that Tom and his brother Justin owned an iconic furniture brand in Auckland until the late 70’s when they sold it to a consortium. Then for nearly thirty nears Tom and his Kiwi wife lived in the “far north” of the US A and was engaged in the Industrial Packaging business which advanced into automated machinery systems. When they decided to move back to New Zealand, Waiheke Island was their pick.
Thus after a lengthy career involving complex B2B projects working with Vendors and Customers to achieve a beneficial outcome that effects each party in a deeply personal way is a joy to be involved in. Many customer and Vendors along the way have offered references and recommendations. One of them best sums up the service to expect from Tom: “Thanks to your amazing knowledge, perseverance, and dedication. You did not seem to have a limit to the lengths you would go for us. We are really grateful.”
