Sharing a passion for property in Paraparaumu
The Kāpiti Coast instantly felt like home to George Love, the newest real estate consultant in our Paraparaumu office. Despite originating from Scotland, he is no stranger to the Wellington region. For the last 17 years, he has been working in Wellington’s CBD. Throughout this time, he has lived all over Wellington before settling in Johnsonville and then moving to Kāpiti at the end of last year. As a result, he offers a strong understanding of Wellington and its surrounding areas.
George has always had a love for sales, and in addition, is fascinated by the real estate industry. Hearing about why people live where they do, their houses, and how they’re adding value to them are always topics that he loves discussing. Enjoying meeting and working with a diverse mix of people, he has a “genuine curiosity for what people are doing with their lives”.
As a national sales manager for a large hair salon company, George is experienced in expertly navigating businesses and people. Last year’s Covid lockdown saw a re-evaluation of both family and career goals. Amongst these, the desire for community involvement ran high. This subsequently led George and his family to Paraparaumu.
Ultimately, it was the process of relocating to Paraparaumu that offered the perfect opportunity to begin a new job as a real estate consultant. Naturally, house hunting in the area involved meeting a wide variety of real estate sales consultants. Meeting these people further encouraged him to follow his idea of a career change.
As a lover of working with people, previous roles have demonstrated his commitment to providing excellent customer service. His beliefs in owning property, reaching financial goals, and achieving the security that comes with property ownership remain strong, as he helps people to buy and sell their homes. It therefore seemed like a no-brainer to help people achieve their real estate dreams.
He describes the team at Harcourts Paraparaumu as being very welcoming and supportive. Settling in, he has found that they have fun working together and helping each other out where needed.
Having had a long career background in customer service and sales, he understands the importance of careful listening for effective selling. With a down to earth and honest approach, paired with hard work and clear communication, Harcourts Team Group is lucky to have George on board!
As George is familiar with, it takes courage to make a big life change. Through his new career, he hopes to continue encouraging people to achieve their dreams.
