What a 12 months it has been – 12 months since our first COVID lockdown. Who would have predicted what would happen to the economy, to the real estate market, to our mental health, to our future? It has been an emotional rollercoaster. There are numerous businesses where the full extent of COVID is only just becoming evident now, such as tourism, hospitality and accommodation, camping grounds, motor homes and retailers who depended on cruise ships and tourists. 

Other industries have thrived because of the extra money kiwis have as a result of not travelling internationally. Real estate is clearly one of those industries. I am humbled by the whole experience, grateful for my health and that of my friends, family and colleagues and I pray for recovery – fast and plentiful for all those industries who are suffering. 

EVES. Exceptional. Every day.
