About Darrell Paterson
My venture into Real Estate started in 1998 with my first house purchase, the beginning of a healthy property portfolio. I have a genuine passion for helping people achieve their Real Estate goals. Tall Poppy has a proud reputation built on Quality Service, Professionalism, Integrity and strong principles that I also live by.
I believe in four values to be successful in life:
• Honesty • Hard work
• Trust • Absolute transparent communication.
In using these values and outstanding people skills, I strive to give clients the highest level of service, adding value to their property and providing the foundation for the best possible result.
I consciously work with a high level of integrity combined with a “make it happen” approach to all service and client requests.
I began my working career in the New Zealand Army, where I spent 9 years. I have played a lot of sport, in particular rugby and was fortunate enough to play in 7 countries.
Before I became a real estate salesperson, I spent 16 years in the New Zealand Dairy Industry (Fonterra), 10 years in the management and leadership team. Having a military background with excellent systems and discipline, complemented with management and leadership skills, I will add value to your Real Estate transaction.
I am married to Felicity and we have three wonderful children. Felicity is a successful secondary school teacher with over 25 years teaching experience, 5 of which at Inglewood High School. We are heavily involved in the East End Surf Club and NPGHS sports.

It is my pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Darrell. When going through the process of purchasing my property, Darrell was thoroughly professional at all times. He was excellent in communicating, and I was kept well informed every step of the way. Darrell went above and beyond to assist me in what needed to be done to effect the sale he worked with me on, including contracting contractors on my behalf when I was out of town. I would absolutely recommend Darrell to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling a property, and would have no hesitation in working with Darrell again. He took away all of the stress that can sometimes be involved with purchasing, and displayed integrity and honestly throughout the whole process.
