About Trista Townsend

Real estate is essentially in Trista’s blood.  Her mother has recently celebrated 18 years in the industry and both parents, along with Dunedin owner Wayne Graham, are co-owners of the Alexandra LJ Hooker branch.  Four years ago Trista hung up her whistle and sports shoes and resigned from her PE teaching position at a local High School to join the experienced and skilled team of professionals at LJ Hooker Dunedin.

In that short time, she has achieved several awards including Best Newcomer in her first year; becoming a member of the Captain’s Club in 2016 and has just celebrated her second year in the Multi-Million Dollar Chapter sitting within the top seven per cent of LJ Hooker salespeople across Australia and New Zealand.

Trista is passionate about property and is people-oriented.  Her clients benefit from her open and honest manner and through her many years of teaching, her ability to relate well to a wide range of people.  She is a perfectionist, has high expectations and believes real estate is not only about attention to detail and full commitment, but also about building relationships and ensuring your experience, whether buying or selling, is a positive one.  Her high level of client care has been acknowledged by winning the 2018 Customer Echo Satisfaction Award for LJ Hooker/Harveys NZ.

Trista is committed to providing a service based on trust and excellence and always endeavours to provide her clients with honest and sound advice.  LJ Hooker Real Estate Ltd is an agency with a strong brand, a skilled team and a reputation for consistent, high-quality service.  Trista feels privileged to be part of a successful and tight-knit Dunedin team and would love to hear from you should you require real estate advice or assistance.
