As the Sales Manager of the Harcourts Holmwood St Albans office, I have the pleasure of working with a phenomenal team of hard-working and friendly professionals.

If you’re thinking about buying or selling, please contact me to discuss your needs. I’ll put you in touch with the right person for you.

If you’re thinking about a career in real estate, please call me for a confidential chat.

I started my career as a Buyers’ Agent for an award-winning agent and gained a strong understanding of what makes a successful real estate team ‘tick’. After several years in sales I made the move into auctioneering and in 2019 I was named the Harcourts National ‘Rising Star’.

I’ve since assisted thousands of people in buying and selling property, and my ethos is very simple: treat people like people. A great client experience is the key to success in real estate, and the team at St Albans are a testament to that.

Our office is a fun, diverse and happy environment – and there’s room for you too. So, call me today. I’d love to talk.

Effective leadership and resolute attention to legislative detail.
– Caroline Register


Unwavering Enthusiasm & Excitement

When Caroline Register took ownership of Holmwood Property Management in 2006, it was her compelling enthusiasm that set her apart. Today, she’s as chipper and passionate about property management as ever. Caroline has grown the business to lead a team of 28 dedicated property specialists and has established herself as one of New Zealand’s foremost experts in the field.

At the heart of Caroline’s ethos is her unwavering and undeniable energy and her motivation to provide an experience centred on the pillars of kindness and care. However, Caroline backs this with strong, effective leadership and resolute attention to legislative detail. As tenancy law goalposts rapidly shift, Caroline’s superior knowledge plus having her finger on the pulse ensures she’s always ahead of the game. Combined with the latest technological innovation she has introduced to Holmwood Property Management alongside her willingness to share information and intellectual property, Caroline’s place as an elevated and aspirational trailblazer is firmly cemented.

However, Caroline doesn’t get it all her own way! At home, the two pre-schoolers rule the roost, ensuring her feet are well and truly grounded and merry mayhem enriches her life.


“You can gain a vast amount of knowledge and experience during a 30 year career in real estate.
– Tony Jenkins

Totally Focused and Committed

Tony has been in real estate for over thirty years with the majority of those at Harcourts.

Tony has received numerous sales awards with his best year in 1995 claiming Number Two nationally for Harcourts Group and Top National Auction Lister.

As one of the founding partners of the Harcourts Invercargill office in 1991, Tony then opened the Gore office in 1995. In 2009 Tony purchased the controlling share of the very successful Holmwood Group, which operates five sales offices in Christchurch and three property management businesses.

Tony has been on the committee of the Real Estate Institute for twelve years serving three years as President of the Southland District. A career highlight for Tony was receiving the Best Practice Award in 2009 from Best Practice Managing director Robert Bevan for his contribution to the real estate industry.

Tony’s focus is always on the delivery of first class service to his company’s clients and to support and grow his very loyal team. In 2015 Tony was inducted into the prestigious Harcourts Hall of Fame in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the organisation. Further to this, in 2023 Tony was made a Life Member of REINZ,  acknowledging his lifelong dedication to improving the institute and the real estate profession.


“Constant excitement and new challenges ensure there is no better business than Real Estate”
– Simon Hollander

Brilliance In Balance

Experience isn’t something you get overnight. It comes from working through a myriad of different situations so when the time comes for action, you can do so quickly and confidently.

For Simon Hollander, experience is something he’s gained with a successful selling career before entering real estate management and ownership.  Devoted to the industry since 1998, with a carefully developed progression of nous and skill, he now directs a tightly knit team of consultants, buyers agents and support staff as Holmwood’s Ilam Office Business Owner and Branch Manager.

The mindset that Simon first established in a civil engineering career has been crucial to this ongoing success. Numerous clients, multi-faceted projects and careful planning were dominant factors then – and they’re vitally important now.

Not one to sit still, for a decade Simon’s dedicated hobby has been to run cycling events in Canterbury. For 6 of those, he hosted the marquee event on New Zealand’s cycling calendar, the Elite National Road Championships here in Christchurch.

Modern real estate also demands innovation. You need to stay on the cutting edge, constantly adapting and evolving. At times such a fast moving lifestyle can be stressful so it pays to have someone who can install a sense of lightheartedness in the office. Quite simply, Simon knows what having a laugh means for the bigger picture. He manages with a quick-to-shine smile, a timely word of advice and a no-nonsense approach.

If this sounds like you, and you are looking for a change in career, give me a call to find out how we can help.
