New Zealand Realtors Network Ltd appoints new GM

New Zealand Realtors Network Ltd appoints new GM

The New Zealand Realtors Network Ltd has appointed a new General Manager, Colleen Milne, to oversee the strategic development of the nationwide network of leading real estate agencies.

Connecting real estate agencies across rural and urban New Zealand, the New Zealand Realtors Network provides buyers and sellers with advice and information for prospective markets. With major national leaders in real estate represented, including REINZ Agency of the Year Barfoot & Thompson, the Network is an industry leader, selling one in four residential properties across New Zealand.

“In many ways the New Zealand Realtors Network Ltd is a sleeping giant, with market share in residential, rural, commercial and enormous property management expertise,” says Colleen, who was appointed as General Manager in July. “You put these skills and knowledge together and NZ Realtors Network is a nationwide specialist.”

Having previously held the position of CEO at First National Real Estate, Colleen is at home in her new role among other industry leaders.

“This is my most exciting role yet,” she continued.

“The Network is a truly great resource for both real estate agencies and Kiwi buyers alike. Its purpose is to provide services, training, referrals and resources to both members and their customers.”

With an MBA and years of experience in the industry, Colleen is well-equipped to oversee the Network which comprises of 155 offices, 2,250 salespeople and over 300 property managers.

There are few topics that pique interest and speculation more than property, and Colleen recognises it as an exciting time to be in real estate.

“My main goal is to grow awareness of the NZ Realtors Network across the country. We are market leaders in many of the regions across the country, so for me, the key is learning what makes for success and sharing best practice throughout our group.”

Commenting on Ms Milne’s appointment, Peter Thompson, Managing Director of Barfoot & Thompson, said, “The team at Barfoot & Thompson benefit greatly from our New Zealand Realtors Network membership and we are excited to see what new opportunities arise under Colleen’s leadership.”
