Along with the support of her team, Helene has maintained a market share of over 30% in the Beach Haven and surrounding trade areas
In talking with Helene about the Beach Haven area, she said that it offers the promise of opportunity. “It is an area that has always been a starting point which allows people to leverage into the market and enables them to build their wealth platform. It is a terrific area for families and for those looking for an area full of opportunity.” On her own work, she said that the real estate industry has provided herwith a high level of independence. She said that she loves being involved in helping people; demonstrating transparency, trust and building a relationship that is enduring. She went on to say that the team that works with her are very much a part of the reason why the office has such a great market share.
Carey Smith, Chief Executive of Ray White New Zealand, said that he is very proud to have Helene on the Ray White team. “It is stunning that a salesperson from an area such as Beach Haven can not only compete, but can be our current number one salesperson for the calendar year in 2011. Helene’s energy and communication skills are a standout and that is just a couple of reasons why she is so successful.”
