  • Fluent in Mandarin and English and understands Cantonese
  • Length of Service - 15 Years


I was born in Shanghai China and immigrated to New Zealand in 1998.  I feel I have empathy with people, this is derived from a career in nursing, specifically in emergency care – for 13 years. This I feel has helped me in my real estate career, as it has given me the ability to build relationships with people, and take care of them from the moment they put their trust in me, to the very end of the business transaction.  I’ve been with this great company for 13 years, and would like to think I have built a reputation as a caring, honest and reliable person.  To be given that trust to sell a Vendor’s home – I think, is a great compliment.

I am married with one son and live locally.  Because of my good length of time selling real estate, I’ve sold all over Auckland, and have a wide knowledge of our city.  I speak both Mandarin and English, and understand Cantonese.  For people whose first language is not English, being able to communicate in their own language makes them feel more comfortable when selling or buying through me.

Having teamed up with my colleague Jo Orawiec about 5 ½ years ago now, we find we can provide an even  better service, take on more work, and STILL (sometimes) have a day off a week.  With a team of Chinese and European agents on your side, we aim to provide 110% satisfaction, and the best price possible for you as Vendor.
