She is an empathetic listener and solutions-oriented salesperson, so if you want to know more about The Sterling, Kaiapoi give her a call today!



Denise brings to The Sterling many years of experience in sales and design and is excited about bringing her ability to the table with the future Residents of the Village. A strong sense of integrity has always been her foundation and this comes through in the genuine and authentic way she relates to people, while having lots of fun and laughter.
Denise is excited about helping people find the right solution so they can enjoy their later years in an environment that gives them choices to live their lives their way.



Marg is now entering the ‘twilight’ years of her career, one that she looks back on with pride and wonderful memories.
While life has thrown her some major challenges, she has always stayed optimistic and cheerful with an eye to the future. Definitely a glass half-full personality (especially if it’s wine).
Marg brings a wealth of administration knowledge coupled with the know-how and passion to help ensure all our residents always have what they need when they need it! There is no one better to have on your side than Marg while you navigate the next chapter of your life.
