About Nick Berry
I have been in the industry for almost 10 years and service the areas of Mt Maunganui and Tauranga. My focus is always on making sure I deliver a service tailored to you. I will keep in close contact throughout the application process and I’m always available to talk through any concerns and questions you might have.
I feel very fortunate to live in the beautiful Bay of Plenty.
I like to spend my weekends exercising outdoors, enjoying all of what BOP has to offer whether it be running, paddling, cycling or mountain biking.
I also love spending time socialising with friends and family - after all, what's better than a kiwi summer BBQ.
