Our Team

Director/Property Manager


Pam arrived in Gisborne in 2009 from the UK. In this time she has really come to love life on the East Coast.

Before joining the Home Rentals team as Office Manager in 2014 Pam worked in hospitality & residential sales. Both of which have set her in good stead for the role as Property Manager.

Pam has been a Property Manager since 2016 a role in which she is excelling in.

In 2022 Pam was given the opportunity to become joint owner of the business. An opportunity which she has grabbed by both horns!

Pam thinks that the secret to a good Property Manager is to be firm yet fair, have a practical mind and very importantly a good sense of humor.
