Once again, we’re adding to our series of blog articles that profile our Bayleys Marlborough team members. We want to ensure you get to know each of our agents a little better. We believe this allows you to make the right choice when you come to sell. We’re delighted that our team grows so consistently, and today we’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to Jess Thomas.
Introducing Jess Thomas
Come July; Jess will be celebrating her two year anniversary as part of our team. Born and raised in Marlborough Jess has spent time in other parts of New Zealand and overseas before finding her way back here, and boy are we glad she did.
It’s been people all the way for Jess. She completed a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in Sociology, worked in executive recruitment in Wellington and London. Became a Mum to two lovely children and worked as Marketing Manager for two local wine companies. More recently, she has owned and operated a Licensed Home Based Child Care Business called Little Sparks. This varied, people-centric career path has been the perfect preparation for working in Real Estate.
Jess specialises mainly in residential real estate, although she has also ventured into the lifestyle sector. Her strong work ethic and natural affinity for people and property make her a popular choice among vendors. She successfully completed twenty nine property transactions in her first year working in real estate.
Asked for her #1 piece of advice to help sell a home, Jess replies, “That’s easy! Spend the time to get your property looking its best and finishing any odd jobs before you present it to the market. First impressions do count and putting in the hard work will certainly help you reap the rewards when it comes to sale time.” Jess feels so strongly about this she’s even been known to get stuck into the decluttering and cleaning for vendors on occasion.
When she’s not advising vendors, or selling homes, you’ll generally find Jess with her family enjoying the best of what Marlborough has to offer. Walks, time in the sounds, up at the lake or skiing at Rainbow.
