Annette Q and A

  • Why did you become a legal executive?I had spent a number of years as a legal secretary working in a variety of areas, however enjoyed property law. I was keen to progress and expand my knowledge in this field and completing my qualification seemed like the best way forward.
  • When you are not being a legal executive what do you like doing most?I enjoy spending time in my garden in the summer months, not so much during winter. I also enjoy a variety of crafts, but my main interest is quilting and fabric craft.
  • Where is your special place in the region?I don’t really have a special place. I am Hutt Valley born and raised. Anywhere in Wellington on a good day is a special place.
  • What is your favourite shop/restaurant?I don’t have a specific favourite shop, I just love shopping. Favourite restaurant has to be Traditional Thai in Upper Hutt.
  • How would you describe your style of practice?I like to work efficiently, providing the best service I can for clients. I strive to have settlements go through as smoothly and hassle-free as possible for clients.
  • If you had to give a first homebuyer a single piece of advice, what would it be?Take your time to choose the right property for you. Don’t rush into something. My thinking is, “If you miss out on this one, then there’s definitely something better waiting around the corner”.
  • What is different about the HomeLegal service that makes it so popular?The friendly, approachable team environment which is really great for homebuyers and sellers.
