One of the rare few real estate career people trained in communication, Marie Raos knows the importance of really listening to her client’s needs. Having worked as a speech therapist after gaining her BA in English Education and Psychology, she believes there’s an art to asking the right questions and never making assumptions. With strong communication skills and a great memory for names and faces, Marie has always worked in people-focused positions.
Having over 25 years in real estate with the Ray White Howick office, she has poured 100% commitment into the job and built an incredible network of contacts and her repeat referral business is huge. Many families in the Eastern Bays wouldn’t think of approaching anybody but Marie to sell their home and such loyalty breeds success. Marie is consistently one of the company’s top performers and she has gained recognition with many high achiever awards.
While Marie is a strong individual, she enjoys working as part of a “tight”, efficient and effective team – “Team Raos” and the wider team at Ray White.
Marie grew up in Howick and has worked in the Eastern Bays most of her life and her knowledge of the area is vast. With her confident, fun-loving personality, she is always pleased to help others by sharing her knowledge. Marie was married to Ivan for almost 40 years until he very sadly and suddenly passed away in April 2014. They have two adult children and more recently 3 precious grandchildren so family and home are important to her. She loves interior design, cooking, entertaining, travel (when there’s time) and walking her precious Westie Molly.
Her passion is marketing for she believes all properties benefit from a high profile, yet she’s careful where she spends her client’s money. Whatever she lists, from small units to multi-million dollar executive properties, she acknowledges that it is usually the clients biggest asset, so she gives it her all.
