After five years practicing as a barrister and solicitor in New Zealand and the United Kingdom, Catherine Goodwin commenced her career in real estate in 2005. In 2008 she successfully completed her graduate study at the University of Massey (Albany Campus) to achieve status of Associate to the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand. As a Licensee Agent, Catherine holds the highest of New Zealand’s three classes of licence.
Acting as in-house legal counsel to London’s largest local authority social landlord, the London Borough of Southwark, Catherine has ‘walked-the-walk’. This has given her the ability to understand all aspects of property management and rentals, housing repairs and long-term maintenance plans.
Electing to operate ‘at the coal-face’ upon her return to Auckland, Catherine managed a large portfolio in the west of Auckland before commencing her transition to management.
As CEO of Goodwins, Catherine stands alongside her father Ashley Goodwin in his commitment to safeguard client’s investments, while further developing his commitment to provide the company’s clientele a superlative level of professional service.
“Our business strives resolutely to deliver excellence in every aspect of our daily operations. We recognise that our company exists as a service business without product or stock, and has built its professional reputation on meeting the needs of people wishing to buy, sell, or rent property.”
