About Shona

Joining the team at Property Brokers was the next step followed by a progression to the role of Sales Manager. Shona brings a fresh approach... After living, studying, working in several different industries and raising a family in Auckland for most of her life, Shona completed her formal education there with a BA in Sociology. A lifetime interest in learning led to real estate training in Dunedin in January 2007, followed by a Certificate in Real Estate shortly after. Marketing and selling property in Dunedin and surrounding towns quickly became a passion and a successful pursuit. Fast forward 15 years, an interest in heritage buildings and a love of villas brought Shona to Oamaru. Joining the team at Property Brokers was the next step. Shona brings a fresh approach to selling real estate, and her life and work experience have provided valuable skills in dealing with people of all ages and stages of life. Having renovated and sold several homes across the country, subdivided sections; being both a tenant and a landlord; and running her own business, Shona has the knowledge and understanding to provide buyers and sellers with a seamless experience. Clients have become friends, which is a testament to the level of service and communication they have enjoyed.

This is the second time I have used the services of Property Brokers, first as a vendor and this time as a buyer. Both times I was fortunate to have Shona McMillan as my agent. In fact, I sought her out after the wonderful, professional but friendly way she handled the sale of my previous property. Once again, I cannot sing Shona's praises loudly enough. And if Property Brokers are smart enough to have Shona on board, then I cannot recommend them highly enough either.

Shona was like that parent who picks you up when you've come off your bike, putting everything back to right in the world. She took all the worry and responsibility off my shoulders. Shona worked incredibly hard on my behalf, way beyond what I had expected. She approached her work with incredible honesty and integrity. She kept me reassured and informed, every step of the way. Shona MacMillan is warm, kind, straightforward and really wonderful. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Colette O'Kane

We dealt with Shona recently when we sold our previous property. We found Shona to be very professional, knowledgeable, and reliable. She communicated well with us on a regular basis to keep us informed. We always found her to be very approachable and made herself available when we needed to contact her for any reason big or small. Shona was always well presented in all aspects. We have no hesitation in recommending Shona as she made the process a good and enjoyable experience.

Having dealt with Shona during 4 separate property transactions over a period of 10 years (both buying and selling) I can say that she has a wealth of experience, amazing problem solving skills and a big heart. She cares about her clients and does her best for them. Real estate is her passion.

When we bought our Ravensborne property, we were new to real estate in NZ. Although we were familiar with the Australian market, we needed help in NZ and, lucky we found Shona to help us. The purchase of the property was seamless, so when it came to selling the same property 10 years later, we chose Shona to be our agent. We had previously had private offers to purchase our house which hadn't gone well, and both had fallen through at the last moment. Then we engaged Shona, who showed us how to sell the property, what needed to be done to the house and land, her recommendations for advertising and how best to present the property to gain the most interest. and the best offers. She was mindful of our time frame and our reasons for selling and worked with us to achieve our goals. Despite the distance between us, Shona communicated with us regularly through every step of the sale process, both by email and by phone. Her knowledge of the Dunedin property market was extensive, and she knew what buyers wanted, and what we were after as vendors. She was mindful of our budget, but still presented the house (in a way that we could not have) to attract the most attention. Rather than doing what she wanted, she engaged us in the decision making process, and used her experience to explain the benefits and disadvantages of various processes. Shona had the contacts and resources to fulfil our needs, and delivered in spades. She said that the market was strong and expected a quick sale, but the price we obtained, and the time it took to sell, far exceeded our wildest expectations. We would recommend Shona to anyone considering buying or selling a property in New Zealand.
