about Sophie Sheild-Barrett
Giving freely of her time to establish a solid connection with clients is something fundamental to Sophie Sheild-Barrett, who feels it is vital to the successful conclusion of all real estate business. After nearly a decade in the real estate industry, she knows that developing trust through a strong working relationship with her vendors is essential for a successful outcome. In-depth communication with her clients provides Sophie with a thorough understanding of their needs, wants and expectations which in turn allows her to create tailor-made marketing campaigns, or promote property, best suited to their needs. Detail-oriented, proactive and considered, she is able to develop a strategy that is unique for each of her clients. As her client’s strongest advocate, she wants them to feel protected, educated and in control throughout the entire process, and she believes that if they have a better understanding, it can lessen the stress that selling and buying property can create. Repeat clients, as well as numerous referrals, are testament to Sophie’s exceptional work ethic, integrity, commitment and dedication, as well as her determination to achieve the best result possible. Sophie’s in-depth knowledge of Hawke’s Bay was cultivated by raising her own family of three boys here, providing her with insight into the changing needs of families throughout their different life stages.
