Manukau's Latest Property Report

Is it just me or is this year flying by as fast as the last?! Here we are in April, I leave on my first holiday in 4 years to Spain which is quite exciting. My flight is at 4am (yes, 4am!) on the 4th June and I return on the 4th July ready to get back to business. It will be nice to leave the NZ winter however I don't know how I will cope with the heat in Spain but I can't complain! Of course, being a dedicated sales agent, I will be checking my emails during my holiday so if you need anything or have any real estate questions for me, please feel free to drop me a line, it's always great to hear from you.  Now, let's get stuck into the market...
