Introducing Sheryn West
I’ve had a passion for property for over 30 years, initially through my banking career, but also as a property investor where I managed my own properties in Auckland and Christchurch. Originally from Auckland, I lived in Singapore for five years, before chosing Canterbury as my home in 2013.
My career has primarily specialised in Property Finance, but I have also held Banking management roles in Projects, Operations, Marketing, Product and IT. My role in Singapore was to fund properties in New Zealand and Australia with Dual Currency Mortgages. I held around 80 Christchurch properties in my portfolio, so have experienced the Earthquake challenges from 2010. While in Singapore I also held an executive role on the New Zealand Chamber of Commerce in Singapore for 4 years.
In 2017 I was approached to set up a Mortgage Brokerage as a Financial Adviser under The Loan Arranger brand, and by building relationships through that opportunity, I was delighted to accept my current position as Rental Division Manager Assistant with Professionals Christchurch.
My management style is to build strong relationships with all stakeholders through clear communications, efficient and effective processes, profitable operations and leading a committed team, all while keeping up-to-date and complaint with the legislative environment. The ideal outcome would be to optimize customer and stakeholder experience and build the bsuiness through satisfied referrals.
A sound work–life balance is important to me too, and I enjoy gardening, painting, walking my dog Shiya, doing puzzles of all kinds and going to the theatre. I’m also just about to become a grandmother for the very first time which is very exciting!
