Claire Finlay describes herself as a person who “likes to lead people into their next home.” Her great gift for listening, empathy and a relaxed manner make her a well-liked and trusted real estate agent – particularly in the suburb of Ellerslie where she has been involved with many of the home sales in the past 11 years.
Born and raised in Napier, Claire left Hawkes Bay and then completed a BA in English at Massey University in Palmerston North before heading to Auckland for new adventures and challenges.
Her successes in a role in the printing industry saw her rise quickly through the ranks, culminating in a Senior Sales Manager position servicing large corporate clients like Telecom and Fletchers.
Claire is personable, authentic and fantastic at keeping all her clients informed and advised every step of the way.
After spending time being a Mum to her two sons (now grown up), Claire also assisted her husband in the running of his high-end residential home building company. She was then drawn back to the workforce in a customer marketing role with a real estate firm in the eastern bays. Whilst there she recognized she could better meet the needs of the people she was working with if she were to become an agent. She attained her certificate as a real estate salesperson and in 2005 she joined Ray White Ellerslie. She never looked back.
The decision to join Megan Jaffe at Ray White Remuera in October 2016 was made to intensify her passion for real estate. Operating her business at the Number 1 Ray White office world-wide, Claire is proud to offer her clients a remarkable real estate experience backed up with the resources and professional reputation of an award winning team.
Claire is personable, authentic and fantastic at keeping all her clients informed and advised every step of the way. Her sound and sensible attitude and depth of knowledge of the local area, make her a person her clients are thankful to have representing them when buying or selling.
