Upper Hutt Leader : July 13th 2011
15 UPPER HUTT LEADER, JULY 13, 2011 LETTERS Company Profle 3650187 A true professional In the constantly evolving real estate industry, Professionals Gillies and Mark salesperson Cameron Macneil is ahead of the pack. The young man prides himself on staying relevant and learns from every property he is involved in. "Keeping on top of the industry is really important. "One of the biggest things I push is that I am always enthusiastic and in selling, I take a high energy approach. I like looking at how things can be done better." Mr Macneil studied marketing and ran his own successful marketing company for about two years in the Bay of Plenty, before moving to Upper Hutt. "There's a lot of opportunity here. It's a neat place and a nice size. "I pride myself on the level of communication I have with my clients and the marketing knowledge I bring." He recently sold a property for $174,000 above the government value in an area with the lowest amount of property turnovers. Whether selling or buying a home or property, no matter what your goal, Mr Macneil says he always works to satisfy the customer. "There's always a buyer somewhere for every home and if I can not fnd that buyer, I have not done my job. Failure is not an option. "I like to think of my job as problem solving and understanding what people are looking to achieve. It's looking at the bigger picture and where they would like to be in the foreseeable future. May and June were two of the best months Gillies and Mark has had in three years. They have the largest team in Upper Hutt with 27 salespeople and the largest number of monthly listings and sales. "Due to such a high number of sales, the number of houses on the market has decreased substantially in the past few months, creating a more competitive market," Mr Macneil says. "Home owners have a choice to make when putting their home on the market, I also had a choice to make when choosing the best real estate agency to work for. For me, the choice was easy."

I note that the regional council and the Royal Wellington Golf Club have entered into an agreement which guarantees the public the official right of use along the Hutt River Trail. This is good news indeed especially for regular users who use the top end of the Heretaunga Park, and cross the paddocks owned by the St Patrick's College proprietors to gain access to the Hutt River Trail via the stiles. I understand that the St Patrick's College proprietors have recently sold this piece of land to the Royal Wellington Golf Club, but the stiles have now been removed. I have seen older folk and women with toddlers struggling to get through the fence without the stiles. Can the RWGC explain why the stiles have been removed, as this track connecting the river trail is very popular with families, older folk and other regular users and I am sure that the local council promotes healthy exercises along this trail. Can the stiles be reinstated as it would be very unfortunate to deprive regular users especially older folk and young families of this facility? SHAN PATHER, Heretaunga General manager of the Royal Wellington Golf Club John Gilbert says the land belongs to the college. There have been discussions between the two parties relating to the possibility of the club having the long-term use of a small parcel of land at the south western boundary of its property but this is unlikely to proceed.'' A spokesman for the college says the stile has since been returned or replaced and considers the situation resolved. -- editor. CBD owners challenged It is good to see such future plans as the Mangaroa development. The vision and concept for the area can only be described as awesome. The fact that it will create jobs and encourage business must be all good for that community and Upper Hutt in general. However, if the landlords/ owners of the buildings in the Upper Hutt CBD opened up their wallets for a change, maybe the CBD could be revitalised with a new look. For years you landlords/ owners have taken rents from various businesses. What have you given back? How about investing some of your money back into your investments -- buildings? Try modernising even the front of these buildings and maybe reduce rents to existing businesses, so as to help create new ones. An empty building isn't an investment, it's a liability. A good looking building will attract businesses and customers. So how about it? The businesses and people have helped you. When will you give back to the community? Just a thought, imagine what could be achieved. IAN BUCHANAN, Maoribank Plea for Hutt River We are Room 5 from St Brendan's School. We have been doing a unit on the Hutt River. We have been discussing and learning about how nature and people change the river. There is a message that we would like all of Upper Hutt to know: Please treat our river with respect. Then we can all enjoy using it. ROOM 5, Year 2, St Brendan's Thanks To the band Short Term Memory, Maurice and to everybody who contributed in so many ways, thank you, your kindness and generosity is so very much appreciated. To all those who couldn't attend the function at St Joseph's School hall on July 2, thank you for your amazing generosity also. MAREIA JONES, Upper Hutt Iwasonmywaytoworkon Monday, June 20. The bus driver braked hard. I went from my seat to the opposite side and my head hit a metal pole. A lady called Carol helped me. She took me to the Upper Hutt Health Centre. I would like to thank everyone for helping me. YOLANDE THORNTON, Upper Hutt
