I was born in NZ, just scraping into the 1960s. Being ever the adventure lovers, my father Lyn Wilcock and my mother Diane decided that Canada was an adventure too good to pass up. So in 1974, my parents, I and two brothers set off to discover the winter wonderland. We had a wonderful 13 years there, made lifelong friends and a tonne of great memories. In 1987 after being hit by an F4 tornado my parents decided that it was a “sign” to move home to the ‘Land of the Long White Cloud’. We arrived in Auckland after a two week pit stop in Hawaii and were greeted by my grandparents who then drove us to Tauranga to their farm at Pahoia Point. My grandmother scared us to death with her barely able to see over the steering wheel driving! But once out of the car and looking out towards the Mount I knew I was truly home.
My husband and I now reside in Otumoetai and are blessed with two amazing and kind children, my daughter Taylor and my son Levi, as well as number of furry family members. We love all that living in Tauranga has to offer, wonderful schools, some of the best beaches in the world and the ability to get anywhere in about 15 minutes!
Being a mum, it’s important to me to have the flexibility and balance to work and still be there to support my kids in their school and sporting commitments. I am a committee member and grade coordinator for Otumoetai Football Club, our family fosters for the SPCA and in 2015 I was involved as a model in the “Tarnished Frocks and Divas” show. I thrive on challenges and am passionate about life and helping people.
My biggest strength is my ability to relate to all types of people and to make them feel at ease. I will go the extra mile and find solutions. I can arm you with the knowledge and honest feedback or advice to help you make the best decisions. With my experience in home staging and merchandising I can offer tips on how to stage your home to get ready for the market and maximise your profit. So if you are thinking of listing your home or wanting to purchase, I will, regardless if buying or selling, work hard

I recently used Carol & Lisa to sell a property of mine in Brookfield.
They were involved through the whole process, popping in as I was tidying the house up etc.
I was a bit weary at the start of their capabilities and being able to do what they said as due to past experiences with some real estate agents. But gladly, they proved me wrong and went over and above expectations and they still keep regular contact with me now.
As a business man and someone involved quite heavily in property myself, the level of professionalism I expect is quite high so I am not the easiest person to please at times but these two delivered and I was left smiling.
I highly recommend using team C & L .

Having such an enthusiastic agent who really understood what type of property I was looking for made the whole process of buying extremely simple and lots of fun. I would recommend Lisa Zawitkoski to anyone looking to purchase or sell in this market. A top notch realestate agent. Thanks Lisa, from a very satisfied customer.
I'd just like to commend you for the time and effort you've put in recently to help my wife and I find a property which will meet our needs. We are both really impressed by your professionalism and knowledge of the current property market.
At no stage during any of our meetings have we felt pressurized to make hasty decisions, or that our questions and concerns were unimportant.
Your personality and friendliness are fine attributes in your chosen profession, and we have no hesitation in saying that you are the best real estate salesperson we've had the privilege of working with. Keep up the great work, and thanks for everything.

I worked with Lisa Zawitkoski on the sale of my home and found the entire experience enjoyable, smooth and successful in terms of both the outcome I received and the relationship that was had. Lisa was professional in her manner and willing to provide the honesty and transparency required to have my needs and opinions understood. Her recommendations regarding the best type of process to undertake in selling my house were solid and I believe, built from her firm knowledge of the residential market. I would recommend Lisa to my friends and colleagues alike.
When selling our house we approached Lisa Zawitkoski because of a recommendation from our neighbour. Right from the outset we found Lisa a delight to work with and she made the process of selling and purchasing our new home far less stressful. Lisa was not only personable but also very well organized and always seemed to have our best interests at heart. From the outset of putting together the advertising and running of the open homes, she was constantly giving us feedback and keeping us in the loop. Even though we had a disappointment with the initial deal falling through at the last minute, Lisa came up with another strategy and sales pitch that got the house sold for a price that was a win/win for us and the purchaser. Although we found the house that was to become our new home, it was Lisa who encouraged us to place an offer that resulted in us securing the property at a good price. This has proved to be a great investment. We believe Lisa is a real credit to the real estate profession and would highly recommend her services.

Lisa has just helped me complete the purchase of a new house in Tauranga. Her input was much appreciated in settling on a purchase price and she then made sure the process of getting the documentation for settling the sale went as smoothly as possibly while dealing with both sets of solicitors. Communications have been prompt and clear and all the way through the process Lisa has been very professional, helpful, always available and extremely easy to work with. Basically, Lisa’s knowledge and willingness to find a resolution to any issues that cropped up made the whole process as simple and stress free as possible. I would have no hesitations in recommending Lisa and would happily work with her again.
