Changing Faces - Mike Pero Warkworth
Posted at 8:00am Wednesday 17 Feb, 2021
A desire to keep challenging himself to reach ambitious goals has prompted Rick Law to take over the ownership of Mike Pero Warkworth.
Those who have dealt with Rick will know something about that drive: last year he sold 21 properties – almost one a fortnight.
Despite the obvious flair for the business, real estate is actually Rick's second career. He formerly helped run a family business refurbishing aeroplanes and spent five years in Singapore restoring corporate jets.
He got a taste for real estate on his return to New Zealand when he began selling apartments in Wellington – selling more than 250 off the plans before moving into commercial real estate sales.
A wish to move closer to his wider family saw him move into the Mahurangi area in 2013. Initially, he continued to run his own business refurbishing aeroplanes, but ultimately switched to work full-time for Mike Pero in 2016.
Rick says a house is likely the biggest asset a person will ever own and, therefore, buying or selling one can be enormously stressful.
“It's a huge pleasure to be able to guide vendors and buyers through that process and be that calm, friendly voice giving considered, experienced and reassuring advice – that's a real motivator for me.”
Rick says being part of the Mike Pero franchise is a big advantage, because it is one of the most cost-effective agencies in town.
Prospective vendors often include Rick in their appraisal mix because of that cost-effectiveness – but he believes it is usually his experience, friendly nature and positive attitude that wins their business.
Rick is a Warkworth area local – you will find him in his office beside the Neville Street entrance to Countdown.
