We’re thrilled to announce that our Auckland team is growing. We’ve recently welcomed Daniel Longmire into the role of Advisor. Dan has been working in the commercial property market for five years and has a passion for data analysis and using that information to help clients make better property decisions.
I sat down with Dan to learn a little bit more about his background and passion for life.
What gets you out of bed in the morning?
I’m a sucker for a good weekend brunch spot or during the week it’s usually a bit of exercise.
How long have you been in Auckland, what do you love about it?
I’ve been here all my life - I love it (don’t hate me for it!). I’m originally from way out West, the very fringe of Auckland, but I now call Parnell home. I love how central Auckland is evolving with loads of new development and the fact you’re still only a short drive to a beautiful kiwi beach.
What’s your biggest achievement to date – personal or professional?
Absolutely my time at UOA. Tackling two degrees (a Bachelor of Property and a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Marketing and International Business), while working and kick-starting my career in commercial property. It was an absolute challenge, but I loved it.
In three words how would you describe your job?
What do you love about your job?
That each client is so varied in terms of their needs, back story and the different areas we can add value. There’s nothing repetitive, which keeps it challenging and rewarding.
I’m looking forward to balancing my experience in research and data analysis with more face-to-face client engagement.
What’s on your career hit-list for the next five years?
My aim would be to grow my knowledge and skill-set, I want to become a commercial property expert.
While I am absolutely passionate about research and data, I’m keen to further grow my consultancy skill-set and profile in the market and I think being within the TwentyTwo team is the perfect place to do that. Working with well-known market experts - Dean and David, as well as a strong team of experienced consultants, what’s better!
