About Me

Doug has lived on The Esplanade in Raumati South for 32 years and is passionate about the Kapiti Area.  He is seen most days walking his two little bichons on the Raumati South Beach or one of the Queen Elizabeth Park tracks.

He has two sons, William and Sam, and 5 grandchildren.  He previously came from a teaching background having taught mathematics for 18 years at Kapiti College. In that time he was the producer of 9 musicals for the college and coached the first fifteen for a number of years. During the 32 years he has lived in Kapiti he has been involved in Paraparaumu Junior Rugby, the administration of the Kapiti Club (he was the President for 9 years and had life membership bestowed on him in 2012).  When time permits he is an enthusiastic member of the Kapiti Playhouse and has played the Dame in many pantomimes and played other leading roles.

Doug & Jan have worked together as sales consultants in the Paraparaumu branch of Harcourts since 2003. They have been married for 7 years and are one of the most successful partnerships operating on the Kapiti Coast. Doug & Jan go the extra mile in assisting owners present their property for sale.  They have been known to mow lawns, water blast houses and decks, declutter and make trips to the dump.

Doug & Jan have a reputation for looking after tenants when landlords are selling their investment properties. They recognise the importance of having the tenants cooperation in order to achieve a successful sale.
