Only one person can hold the title of Ashburton’s longest serving urban real estate agent - and that is Property Brokers’ Jenny Gray.
A born and bred Mid Cantanbrian, Jenny was raised on her parent’s farm at Ashton. Educated locally, she was in a farming partnership in Flemington before entering the world of Real Estate in 1982.
Since then she has helped hundreds of locals with their real estate transactions, and in exchange gained a wealth of knowledge about the town and those who make it what it is today.
“The benefit of a small community like ours is the relationships you build over the years and the strong connections you make with people, from individuals and families to business organisations such as banks and solicitors. I love it.”
As much as you may know the community you serve, Jenny knows that no two sales are ever the same. But that’s what keeps her job interesting and that’s another reason why Jenny has been her role for over 30 years - and counting.
In her spare time, Jenny loves to spend time with her adult sons, Tim and Jonny, and their partners, plus 5 delightful grandsons and one adorable granddaughter who all live locally.
Keeping her Standard Schnauzer Joey and herself fit means a daily walk at Argyle Park.
Jenny and her partner Ray Knight love to take regular breaks to their holiday house on the beach at Hokitika- “A great way to charge your batteries.”
