About Valerie Neil
With over 14 years’ experience in the Real Estate industry as a Sales and Marketing consultant, in both the North and South Islands, and 15 years in the retail industry, 9 in management, I am well qualified to market and sell your property. I have sold Residential, Lifestyle, Commercial and Rural properties and my total sales have exceeded $55 million.
I attended the full Harcourts Training Academy in Christchurch in 2010, and achieved Top Salesperson in the Motueka office in December 2009, February 2010 and July 2010. Soon after I returned to Taranaki to deal with family matters, bought property, and am now back home to stay. During a 2 year stint owning and operating my own motel in the very busy Nelson summer suburb of Tahunanui, customer service became of the utmost importance to me.
On a personal level, I am one who likes to seek out the big picture and is always looking for a challenge. Never afraid to get my hands dirty or my feet wet, I have climbed mountains, leapt from a gondola into a canyon, jumped out of an aeroplane (twice), barrelled through white water, swum with dolphins, bashed my way cross-country through thick bush for 5 days, and was a Search and Rescue Volunteer from 2000 to 2005.
I am a member of Sport Taranaki affiliated group Women In Action and I donate regularly to the East Taranaki Environment Trust, where they are doing a wonderful job of bringing back the Kiwi. They have also re-established the Kokako, a stunning bird with a soulful call. Every New Zealander, now and in the future, needs to see and hear these icons. This is my way of “Paying it Forward” for future generations to enjoy these precious birds.
Supporting “Big Brothers, Big Sisters” is also a passion of mine. This is a mentoring programme run in conjunction with the New Plymouth Police.
