Paul is exceptionally well respected in Rotorua, not only for his unparalleled professional track record and high ethical standards, but for being an honest hard-working family man who does absolutely everything in his power to ensure his clients success.

His commercial awareness stems from being a business owner himself, having spent 25 years as owner of Star Appliances, a Fisher & Paykel franchise store. His work ethos was exceptional service and to give his clients an outstanding retail experience, which saw him win many National retail awards over nearly three decades.

After selling his business, 2006 saw a change in career when Paul was head hunted to develop the Commercial Department of NAI Harcourts in Rotorua. Within two years he was again standing on the podium accepting the end of year award for top commercial agent in New Zealand, an outstanding effort, particularly considering the provincial nature of Rotorua. Now with over a decade’s experience in the commercial and industrial property sector, Paul has consistently been placed in the top 3 agents in New Zealand for NAI Harcourts.
