Buying or selling a home or property is, after all, a major decision and it is important to know a little about who you are working with. Making a lifestyle change to be a real estate salesperson 25 years ago was really quite an easy decision to make. To be successful in this profession you have to enjoy working with people, be a listener, show passion, have drive and of course deliver results.
As a goal setter Christine has huge satisfaction in achieving results that has kept her in the Top 10% in Ray White for many years, but the greatest pleasure of all was making a lot of vendors and purchasers very happy. After selling for years Christine wanted to take on another challenge and decided to further her knowledge in real estate by obtaining AREINZ status. Upon receiving this it was time to look at owning a real estate business.
November 2006 Brent Sturm and Christine became business partners and have continued to grow the business. In December 2015 an opportunity came along to open another office in Nelson Central along with our business partner Grant Chaney. We have a fantastic group of salespeople, admin and property management team. Working as a team has always been a priority to Christine and by encouraging this in the office the team environment is quite amazing and often commented on by the general public. Christine likes to work very much hands on in the business but have a huge passion working with the team mentoring and training on a daily basis.
Away from work Christine is very much a family person. Throughout her career she has received huge support from her husband Murray and two adult children Carina and Blair. Carina is married and resides in Blenheim with her husband Glenn and their beautiful daughters Stella and Skye. Both Carina and Glenn are also in real estate so I guess we could say it is in the blood. Blair and Gemma moved to the Fox Glacier 15 months ago where Blair flies for Glacier Helicopters. Blair's career has already taken him to many exciting places and now that they have a beautiful daughter Quinn who is now 5 months old, we are hoping they will stay within driving distance from Nelson for a little while.
