While achieving a Bachelor degree in Economics and International Business from the University of Auckland, Maria started her career working as a PA in a property investment company. After rising through the ranks, a decade later, she has worked her way to become a property investment specialist and founder of her own consultancy.
Maria’s deep understanding of how investment decisions can be affected by the local and international economic climate has been the key to her success. Maria is also a Registered Financial Advisor and belongs to the Financial Dispute Resolution Service. Her Finance Service Provider number is FSP434706.
Craig started as a builder’s apprentice aged 15, and within 4 years owned his own business. Before long, this had grown into several companies employing around 200 people. Heavily involved in the rebuild after the Christchurch earthquake, Craig’s extensive experience, valuable contacts, and knowledge of building contracts means that DPG’s clients are always shown the best investment opportunities – often before they are offered to the public.
At DPG, Maria and Craig work hard to tailor strategies and find appropriate property investments, whether you are a first-time or sophisticated investor. All of our clients – whatever their financial profile – receive the same level of commitment and service. We work with New Zealand families on average incomes as well as professionals, business owners and overseas buyers. And because we carry out research on a daily basis – concentrating on the Auckland, Hamilton and Cambridge areas – we can provide up-to- date knowledge, facts and statistics, rather than the worn out sales pitches you’ll hear elsewhere.
So DPG’s philosophy is simple: we want to put you on the road to financial freedom by showing you how to pay off your mortgage faster, considerably reduce your tax bill and benefit from great property investment opportunities.
