Kate O'Connell

Kate has joined our residential team after a successful period with NAI Harcourts Commercial, during which she won several awards for her work. She has also been involved with small businesses and overseeing her rental portfolio. Kate has experience in leadership, project management and thrives on spearheading, challenging, multifaceted, projects especially throughout her 14 years as a teacher at Christchurch Boys High School.


Her friendly manner coupled with excellent communication skills allows Kate to easily establish a great professional relationship with   all of her clients. Kate prides herself on her integrity, her tenacity and also on her ability to truly understand the expectations of her clients and will work tirelessly to bring about a successful and stress free outcome for you.


It was inevitable that Kate would decide to sell residential homes and properties given her years of bringing up a large family and her teaching background, plus a newly discovered love for interior and landscape design having upgraded her own family property. As a member of the Chesmar and Co team, Kate has the support of Jan- Louise Chesmar, who is well respected and has over 30 successful years of Real Estate sales behind her, and Max Kozin, a skilled and energetic salesperson plus the services of Kathrine Healy, our efficient and friendly Personal Assistant. You can be confident that Kate, with the backing of the whole team will deliver the service that will achieve a wonderful result.


Kate is a true ‘people person’ and has a hunger for adventure and trying new things. She and her husband Steve have brought up their four adult children in Christchurch. She also has a strong interest in travel, particularly throughout Asia and she enjoys meeting and learning from people from a diverse range of cultures and backgrounds.

“We have just concluded a very successful lease transaction with the assistance of Kate O’Connell. At all times Kate was helpful, friendly, professional and responsive. She listened to us and made sure she understood our needs, which meant we were able to negotiate mutually acceptable terms and come to an agreement in a timely manner. We would highly recommend Kate to anyone looking for an agent for commercial leasing.”

Kate is brilliant! I had a lease to assign – she assessed my requirements at once, visited the site, and within the week the business was done! The whole procedure went smoothly, efficiently and professionally. Perfect! And as an added bonus Kate is so relaxed and easy to get on with.
