About Gerard Charteris
Born in New Plymouth Gerard has had a varied and challenging career path. He began his working life in the insurance industry transferring to Taupo on promotion and changing his allegiance to the finance industry with the merging of those industries in the early 1980's. He moved quickly up the ladder ultimately bringing his wife and 3 children to Auckland to take up a position in the Corporate Banking and Marketing Divisions of a large Corporate Bank.
Since 1993 he has been using his well honed negotiating skills and financial background to assist him in selling residential real estate. He has constantly been rated in the top 10% of Barfoot & Thompson Ltd salepeople.
"I enjoy striving to achieve the best possible price for my vendor within the shortst period of time, without causing them undue stress. It's immensely satisfying to shake their hand and conclude a deal knowing that my vendors are completely satisfied. It requires commitment, honesty and a good deal of hard work but to marry a property to an enthusiastic buyer - the result is magic!"
Gerard is assisted by his wife Karin who deals with the marketing side of the business arranging appointments, attending to correspondence and assisting in hosting open homes. Together, their single-minded commitment is the key to your success.
