Business Profiles

Hawke’s Bay has a new home of luxury real estate – Business Profile

Welcome to Oliver Road – a specialist estate agency focused solely on marketing and negotiating the sale of unique, high-value homes. Founded by Cam Winter in 2017, the firm has established a formidable track record and been responsible for many of the Bay of Plenty’s most notable sales over the past five years. Working exclusively in the top end of the market and representing only a select few properties at any given time, the Oliver Road team is known for delivering a world-class service that includes valuation, pre-market improvements, luxury furnishings, high-impact exposure across national and international markets, and strong negotiation in favour of its clients.

Transacting a total of $280m in property sales and representing an ever-growing list of astute clients including National Party’s Simon Bridges, Tainui & Ngāi Tahu Holdings’ Mike Pohio, AC/DC’s Phil Rudd and best-selling author Chelsea Winter, Oliver Road is now proud to announce the appointment of experienced local real estate professional Nic Goodman as Sales Director of our Hawke’s Bay branch, and to share the first listing in our Summer ’22 Collection – ‘The Gallery’ at 110 Durham Drive, Havelock North.

Nic Goodman

Nic grew up on her family farm in Central Hawke’s Bay and whilst this upbringing no-doubt contributed to her love of the outdoors, it was clear early on that her professional career path would take her off the land and into the city. A degree from Lincoln University lead to a stint on the West Coast of the South Island where she discovered a strong interest in marketing and sales. She continued studying, eventually departing the Coast with a Diploma in Marketing, a passion for sales and an aversion to torrential rain.

After spending time abroad over the next few years, Nic returned to Hawke’s Bay where she worked in a variety of sales and marketing roles and married husband of 25 years, Steve, together raising three children now aged 21, 19 & 16.

In 2013, Nic entered the real estate industry as a Sales Associate with Sotheby’s in Hawke’s Bay. Over the following eight years, she established a formidable track record – winning a number of coveted awards and consistently ranking highly among industry peers both locally and on a national level.

Nic was inspired by international real estate conferences, always exploring new trends, pushing boundaries with marketing, and striving to deliver better outcomes and service to her clients. In more recent years, she focused this attention on high-value real estate and, until recently, held the record of the highest residential sale price in Hawke’s Bay.

Some years ago, Nic identified Oliver Road – as a unique luxury estate agency with exceptional marketing selling high-end homes in Bay of Plenty. She set her sights on bringing Oliver Road to Hawke’s Bay and is proud to have recently formed this exciting partnership. The pairing of Nic’s highly-personable and trustworthy character with Oliver Road’s truly specialist approach to marketing luxury real estate is already proving to be a perfect match. Sellers of Hawke’s Bay’s most fabulous, high-value homes have waited long enough for an agency to deliver world-class service and superior results, needless to say – Nic Goodman & Oliver Road are here to prove that the wait is over.
