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 Team’s collective commitment to Goodwins’ Vision, Mission and Core Values, the things we will and will not compromise on to meet our promise to always be ethical and act with integrity, is essential in unifying our team,” says Catherine. “With Property Managers out on the road working across the length and breadth of Auckland, and our senior team travelling to build our network and deliver our growth strategy, a common goal is needed to set the tone, the approach and the direction for our business.”
