Marita is the kind of sales consultant every property seller wishes they had in their corner. For her, real-estate encompasses so much more than ‘making the sale’. It is instead the development of a relationship, where Marita’s role is to ensure the process of selling a property is as stress-free as possible.
Her strong organisational skills reveal her previous career as a teacher: “I provide a timetable so that all parties can keep abreast of the schedule”. Indeed, many of the traits Marita developed through her background in education, such as the abilities to problem-solve, be patient, mediate and always display professionalism, are incredibly valuable within the real-estate sector.
Marita has always had a passion for property: “My dad was a builder, and my brother is a builder and draftsman. You could say it’s in the blood!” She enjoys learning about different architectural styles, and understanding the relationship between where people live and the lifestyle they lead. Her love of décor led her to work as an interior designer before joining Harcourts. Her personal experience of selling with Harcourts is perhaps the highest form of recommendation any prospective client needs: “The office manager sold us our house a few years ago. We were so impressed that when we on-sold, we decided to get him back again”.
A member of a dedicated twenty-three-person sales team, Marita takes pride in the unique branding of Harcourts, and its family atmosphere. Harcourts is also progressive in its technology, its marketing and its methods of interacting with the public. Within her role, Marita is responsible for showing properties to interested parties, co-ordinating bank evaluations, organising open homes, recommending stying companies or financial lenders, and assisting people through the settlement process. The mother of two has
a strong appreciation of the arts and loves a wine with cheese!
Given her past teaching experience, it is no surprise that Marita is a strong supporter of the Mutitjulu Foundation, which assists an Aboriginal community run a school holiday program, and the Open the Door Foundation attaining a better standard of education for children in Vanuatu. This charitable involvement is strongly encouraged by Harcourts, who continually go above and beyond in their sponsorship and donations to both foundations.
Marita is truly invested in the lives, issues and successes of her clients. The extent to which she cares about others achieving their dreams is evident when she lists the highlight of her role as: “…providing impeccable service to vendors and helping purchasers find the property that best suits the way they live”.
