“Working with my clients is the best thing about my job – I love it.

“I'm totally mobile – whatever suits.”
Claire is a fan of KiwiSaver for helping with a deposit for a home.

And there's further good news for local home buyers.
“We're currently aligning with a couple of local building companies, which should help us build even stronger relationships with potential home owners (so to speak!).”
Claire isn't just all about finance though. As part of what she calls “my girly side” she's a team leader in an organic skin care and makeup business.
“It's a real feel-good thing. I love seeing women's faces light up when they try the beautiful World Organics, especially since they are pure & natural!”
