I’m Chris, also known as Ceej, CJ, Juddy, and most recently and importantly, Dad. After being born and raised in the Wellington region, I left for Queenstown when I was seventeen to complete a golf apprenticeship that led me into a professional golfing career overseas.
After travelling and living between New Zealand, Australia and the United States with my wife Lauren, we finally put some roots down in Waikanae a few years ago, when we returned from LA so I could spend the last three months of my father’s life with him.
Although I’d always worked in the golf industry, whether it was sales, teaching or repping, when we moved back to the coast there weren’t a lot of career options in that industry. When my brother-in-law, who co-owned a real estate company, encouraged me to do my license, the rest was history.
When I’m not helping our awesome clients buy and sell homes, I’m spending my time off out on the golf course, hanging with family, working on the house and when the whitebait is running, spending hours down at the river. I love playing and watching sport, coffee, family and friends, and of course being dad to my beautiful daughter, Hayden.
