Coromandel Beaches Realty Ltd (Licensed: REAA 2008) - Harcourts, Harcourts Tairua
My name is Philippa Evans, I live in Tairua in the Coromandel. I have lived in Tairua for 16 years, with my husband Simon and our 2 boys, Harry and Jake.
I grew up in Wellsford and moved to Auckland to become a Primary School Teacher. I taught in a variety of schools on the North Shore for 7 years, before starting our family.
When our first son was born, we decided to move from the city to Tairua, for a more relaxed lifestyle and to a smaller friendlier community.
Over the past 16 years we have been and continue to be involved in our community by joining organisations such as Playcentre, Tairua School Wine and Food festival committee, the Rugby club to name a few.
During our time in Tairua, I have taught in the local schools, both fulltime and part time. So after 27 years in Education I felt ready for a change.
I am drawn to Real Estate as it fits with my interests, I like houses and people. I enjoy looking at other people's houses, borrowing good ideas and dreaming of how the homes could be more fabulous. I like talking to people and hearing their stories.
Teaching has taught me many professional qualities that I believe I can transfer to my new career in Real Estate. Qualities such as integrity, relationships based on respect, active listening, organisational skills and reliability. I always present myself professional, I am keen to learn and strive to do my best.
I look forward to helping people find their dream home, doer upper or achieving their investment goals.
