Dedication to success with Bridget Gabites
We couldn’t be happier to welcome Bridget Gabites to our team, in a Business Leadership role from Team Group and as our Lower Hutt and Eastbourne Branch Manager. With 13 years of experience in the industry, Bridget brings a range of expertise to her new team.
During her time in the industry, Bridget has taken on a number of roles. Her initial move to real estate came because of a desire to find a career where hard work and dedication were rewarded accordingly. But there were many other things she loved about her role as a real estate consultant, including the opportunity it gave to both service the community and provide great service to her clients. “I love negotiating and understanding the huge tension that exists between the buyer and seller. I love that our job eases that tension and finds a sweet spot where both parties can be satisfied.”
Working successfully as a real estate consultant in Australia, Bridget reached the Top 10 agents in her state for Harcourts and was a finalist in the REIQ Agent of the Year Awards. After that, she headed up Growth and Strategy for a multi office team. A return to New Zealand consequently brought a leadership role at Harcourts Holmwood, one of New Zealands top franchises. As a result, her toolbox of ideas and solutions that she brings is larger than most. We’re thrilled to have her join our team!
Bridgets new role will involve working across the whole of Harcourts Team Group, with a particular focus on growth and strategy of the business. She will also be working one on one with our Lower Hutt and Eastbourne teams and supporting them as their branch manager.
Getting to be a bit of a chameleon is what Bridget enjoys most about her work. From working on strategic business growth while also finding solutions to issues, leading change, and developing people in their roles, her new position truly is varied. Additionally, she believes real estate is a wonderful industry because we get to build long lasting relationships with our clients. “Seeing the pure joy on our buyers faces buying their new home never gets old.”
According to Bridget, the secret to success is working smarter. “My business success is built on three key elements: great planning, a dedication to getting results, and making people happy.”
Above all, gratitude drives Bridgets approach to her work in real estate. In an industry where nothing is a given, being grateful for every opportunity that arises is important. “I’m particularly grateful for the opportunity to work with the incredible team at Harcourts Team Group, and I’m looking forward to the great things we can achieve together.”
Welcome to the team Bridget!
