About Jo

Jo comes from a Wellington background originally, but found her ‘true home’ on the Coast 18 years ago. Working in conveyancing for a long-established local firm for 6 years, Jo chose to jump the fence and bring her love of the Buller region to real estate. Joining the team in February 2021 as PA to rural agent Willie McLaughlin, she soon discovered she had a desire to play a bigger part in making peoples property dreams a reality. She lives locally with her partner and teenage daughter, 3 dogs, 1 cat, 2 sheep, 23 chickens and a rooster named George Michael. It’s fair to say she understands what it takes to make living the coast dream possible! Honest, trustworthy and brimming with down-to-earth guidance and advice, talk to Jo for all your property questions and answers.
