Margot Berney
When you think ‘People person’, it’s hairdressers, concierges and flight attendants which spring to mind. Margot Berney has never been any of these. She instead decided that her natural personable skills were better put to use helping people into homes.

After a career in banking during which Margot thrived on the constant client contact and ability to assist people, the decision to move into real estate was an easy one. After all, it’s in the blood, with both her Grandfather and brother both having highly successful careers in the industry. The opportunity to work with the dynamic hoamz team was, as Margot says ‘the icing on the cake’.

Located in the small rural community of Owaka in the beautiful Catlins, Margot’s a married mum of four living on a busy farm that’s been four generations in family hands. While real estate Property Consultant is now her official working title, Margot’s a busy lady who’s committed to local community groups including St John and Plunket.

So whether you’re looking for advice on farming, motherhood, or buying a house, Margot’s always ready to lend a hand. With a twinkle in her eye and an optimistic outlook, we think she’s the new definition of people person!
