About Ricky Bartlett
Originally from England, I have spent the last 27 years living and working in New Zealand and loving every moment of it! Married to Donna, with 2 children Sara and James as well as 4 grand-children, my life is busy and amazing..all at the same time! Spending quality time with my family is very important to me and the best form of relaxation after busy days working as a real estate agent.
I am passionate about sport in many forms and as a young man I was fortunate to spend 7 seasons playing cricket for Somerset County Cricket Club at a professional level. On emigrating to New Zealand, I was able to continue this love, working at New Zealand Cricket as Development manager for Horowhenua Kapiti Cricket Association. In 2006 I spent the year living and travelling the country in a camper-van, raising money for charity. I did this by playing all the golf courses that existed in this country at that time- a total of 422 in 362 days!
The past 12 years have been spent selling real estate, the last 5 of which have been with Tall Poppy Real Estate here on the Kapiti Coast. I love being given the opportunity to help people sell their house and move for whatever reason that may be. I understand that being responsible for what is for most people their most valuable asset, is a huge privilege and it is a responsibility I take very seriously. My time in the industry has given me the skills and knowledge required to deliver consistently high results leading to many national awards within the Tall Poppy organisation, including being recognised as Number 3 Salesperson in the company in for 2017/2018.
