Jennie and husband Stan met in Hamilton some 40 years ago while studying. After living in Auckland, then Australia for several years, they returned to Hamilton in 1999 with a job offer, and brought three daughters back with them. Their first step into property investment was the purchase of their business premises in 2004 – which they still operate out of today. Other properties have followed on from there.
A member of WPIA since 2014, they joined to learn more about property investing and gain a better knowledge of being a better investor and landlord. They are believers of providing a rental property that they would live in themselves.
Jennie – a self employed bookkeeper by trade with a background in construction and building industry, Jennie has always had an interest in management accounting and helping organisations with reporting and compliance. Working with a wide variety of business types, Jennie has a special interest in non-profit organisations. The opportunity came up recently to fill the Treasurer role, so Jennie jumped at that chance to help the organisation.
