About Marie Raos
Introducing Marie Raos
One of the rare few career people actually 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 and Psychology, she believes there's an art to asking the right questions and never making assumptions.
With strong communications skills and a great memory for faces, Marie has always worked in people focused positions. She switched from speech therapy to roles with Air New Zealand and later joined the family retail furniture business. Then she was enticed into real estate by an advertisement specifically seeking teachers with people skills, 'who could listen and talk at the same time'.
In her 10 years in real estate with the Ray White Howick office, she has poured 100 percent commitment into the job and built an incredible network of contacts. Her repeat referral business is huge. Many families in Howick wouldn't think of approaching anybody but Marie to sell their home. 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 she's a strong individual, Marie enjoys working as part of a team. She has stayed with the Ray White group, as she believes it's a great agency with an exceptional standard of ethics. Above all, she is renowned for her absolute integrity. "I'd never want to sell something to someone that I wouldn't be prepared to live in or fix up myself," she says. "Ethics are so important in this business. I want to be able to walk down the street and look people in the eye. I always like to think I have done my very best for people and achieved the best result possible. That means follow-up, follow-up, follow-up."
Marie grew up in Howick and has worked in the Eastern Suburbs all her life. Her knowledge of the area is vast. With her confident, fun-loving personality, she is always pleased to help others by sharing her knowledge.
Her passion is marketing for she believes all properties benefit from a high profile. Yet she's careful where she spends her clients' money. Whatever she lists, from small units to multi-million dollar executive properties, she acknowledges that it's usually the client's biggest asset, so she gives it her everything.
Marie is married to Ivan Raos and has two adult children. Family and home are important to her. She loves interior design, cooking, entertaining, playing tennis and travel, when there is time.
