HAPPY NEW YEAR FOR 2020!

I trust you had a great Christmas and were able to take time out to enjoy the summer weather. Whakatane, and Ohope in particular, are still buzzing with holiday makers enjoying our desirable location and climate, and who can blame them. Last year was actually one of the busiest years in real estate which resulted in over 100 sales just in Ohope alone. During 2019, we received a high level of real estate inquiry and still have many buyers looking for property and a quality of life that our corner of the world provides.

Summer in Ohope is, of course, amazing - we live in an absolute paradise and the ocean is my second home (with Bali a very near third!). It was great to have family and friends at home and to forget about business for a moment. Getting out to Whale Island on Christmas morning before the wet weather set in for the day was awesome.

 

A highlight for me was getting a flight in our business owner Wayne Pamment's very own Nanchang (a Chinese light attack plane) where I got some great shots of Ohope and Otarawairere while flying overhead. What a fantastic opportunity - some of you may have even seen the old warbird's vapour trail as it flew our skies over Christmas and New Year.

 

Another highlight was being asked to capture the 'paddle out' at West End to pay respect for those in the Whakaari White Island tragedy. We honestly couldn't have asked for better weather or kinder seas on the day which added to this amazing and emotional tribute.

 

I have enjoyed this time so much that (and some of you may not believe me) I haven't even been out for a fish! But the time has come to re-stock the freezer and like always, the ocean provides!

 

Wishing you a wonderful happy, healthy and prosperous year. Don't forget, if you're out and about in my neck of the woods, look me up or feel free to call into 148 Ocean Road for a chat. I'm never too far away and always happy to talk about the real estate market, fishing, or just Ohope in general.

 

I'll end this letter with a dawn shot from one of my last fishing trips. This photo caught the attention of many people on Facebook and shows Ohope in all it's glory first thing in the morning. Truly stunning!

Testimonials

David was understanding and totally helpful at all stages. He treated us with respect, shared our concerns, and became part of our 'family' - popping in regularly and enjoying each other's company. We enjoyed a good result, but he understood the stress involved when people are 'older'. We received first class service from David Marshall who has intimate knowledge and understanding of the local market.
