The savvy and experienced local business woman, has opened the region’s first Mike Pero Real Estate franchise, based in Hastings, as the Hawke’s Bay brand and territory owner covering Napier to Central Hawke’s Bay.
Fulfilling a lifelong ambition to own her own business in real estate, Amber says she wanted to bring a real point of difference to the regions highly competitive residential market.
“I’m hugely excited about the opportunities for Hawke’s Bay, particularly in Hastings which has huge potential as a growing city with coming more alive with inner city living in the planning – it’s all happening here and it’s fantastic to be part of it.”
Throughout her career, Amber’s worked across almost every aspect of the property market, first starting out at 18 in administration, then moving into property management then finance and sales.
“I’m passionate about the industry and through a range of different career opportunities, I’ve been able to gain experience right across the board both working in Auckland and the regions.”
“For the past two years, I enjoyed working within another franchise Property Scouts in Hawke’s Bay, so it’s given me a great insight into the advantages of becoming a franchisee.
“After doing my research I rang Mike Pero and we hit it off instantly.
As part of Mike Pero Real Estate, I’m able to offer an affordable option for Hawke’s Bay clients along with providing all our local listings with the significant benefits of being connected to a major brand with national marketing, scale and reach.
It’s the best of both worlds,” says Amber.
Amber has been built up great network within Hawke’s Bay, which has already seen her gaining referrals and being busy with appraisals and first listings.
“When people are listing their home, they want to know they’re getting expert advice and value for money. We have one of the most competitive lower fee rates on offer at 2.95 for the first $390,000 and 1.95% thereafter.
Mike Pero says he’s looking forward to his next visit to Hawke’s Bay to officially open the new office with Amber.
“For the last five or six years we have been very keen to open in Hawke’s Bay, but we really wanted someone who would fit in with our culture, vision and integrity. Amber is the perfect fit and we are delighted to have her as our representative based in Hastings – you will find Amber a pleasure to deal with” says Mike.
