A little about me
This is my story and why I do what I do…..
My career has always been about looking after people, whether it was as a mother with my two wonderful sons, a business owner marketing hair & beauty or within my trained profession for 20 years in the dental industry nurturing & looking after patients, running dental practices & managing staff. Life for me has always been about looking out for others, often guiding or helping them in some way.
However, something was telling me a change was on its way…..
A friend of mine commented one day over a glass of wine, they thought I would make an excellent recruitment consultant, which at the time I scoffed and laughed off without a further thought. Not long after that conversation, an opportunity presented itself to work within the Real Estate industry to assist agents find what they are looking for to help build their own brand and personal wealth. It all seemed terribly exciting, but also somewhat scary too me at the time. But I was up for the challenge, and I made a bold and brave decision to shift out of my comfort zone and take a completely new direction in life. Now, I wish I had started decades ago, because I absolutely LOVE IT!
When I started in this industry a couple of years ago, I heard so many stories which really touched my heart & I knew that I could make a real difference by just being me. It gives me the greatest joy to help people reach their goals, and go from good to great!
From working with all the top brands & identifying the best place an agent would fit, I soon became very successful and had finally found the career which delivered me a great sense and feeling of worth. My bold and brave career change, truly changed my life and of those I have worked with. Along the way I have helped so many people, most of whom I now count as dear friends.
In 2017, I was approached by Ben Macky of Wallace & Stratton who asked me to help him build his business vision. When we discussed his vison it was clear we both shared a great compassion for people and I saw this as a real point of difference. Ben exudes high energy along with a genuine, honesty and caring nature, and our values were highly aligned. I knew in a short space of time, Wallace & Stratton was where I needed to be.
Now, as Ben’s right hand person, we are both on this fast paced journey together. Already we have made massive headway with Ben now fully focused on sales agent training & development and myself focused on people, systems, and admin. We are now deploying an agent attraction process which will see our numbers double in size with the opening of our 2nd office located in Orewa over the coming weeks.
We’re on an awesome journey as a company to successfully deploy our vision to be a national real estate brand.

My own mantra in life has been; always good to have Plan “A” and Plan “B”….talk soon….Rachel.
