After 20 years in the travel industry working with people and helping them achieve their dream holiday experiences I joined Real Estate in 1996 and turned that experience around to help people achieve their real estate aspirations. I became a very successful salesperson combining my passion of people, homes and gardens – a win win for my clients and myself. In 1999 my husband and I purchased our own real estate office in Katikati which in turn, was also a success. I took on the role of Sales Manager and continued to sell real estate and attended a Legal Executive Course. I stopped selling real estate myself in 2005 to concentrate on my Management and Training role and over the years have trained, mentored and lead many really good sales people . Training and mentoring has become an integral part of my role and I have discovered over the years just how much I enjoy it and I especially enjoy the success of those that I work with. To see them flourish, succeed and embrace what I have to share, in order to assist them in their career, has added this to my list of passions – people, houses, gardens and their success. Another part of my work that I truly enjoy is being on the negotiation team working with our hugely successful Auction team headed by our extraordinary auctioneer, Grant Child. To assist clients, customers and our sales team to achieve the success that all parties desire is so rewarding.
Being Sales Manager in our wonderfully located Gate Pa office – great shopping at Mega Mitre 10, the green grocer and Gourmet Trader – just to name a few! Here I continue my passion and work cohesively together with our excellent team and really nice clients. We are so privileged in this industry to look after many homes, buyers and sellers. After all these years it still gives me much pleasure to see people happy with their Real Estate experience and in turn have a happy, well rounded team that also love their work. Along with the team at Gate Pa, I welcome you and look forward to working with you.
It was with great jubilation Kate Williams was welcomed to the Gate Pa office as Manager.
Kate brings her a wealth of real estate knowledge and her own very personal style of management, one which is nurturing and fun but also extremely professional. I feel with her at the helm that I am well protected in matters of compliance (so important today with the exposure we salespeople are subjected to daily) and she is a great foil when a different angle is needed to handle a negotiation or appraisal situation.
I have found Kate always, to be fair and non-judgemental with her end goal to do plenty of “good” business!
Having worked in the real estate arena for the past 25 years or more, I can genuinely say that Kate is one of the best Managers I have had the pleasure of working with and having her alongside me is a definite advantage to my business and the growth I aspire to achieve each year.
