Recommend Monique:


Monique Fouwler is the National Portfolio Manager for Housing New Zealand. She manages a team of around 60, comprising Asset Managers, Portfolio Managers, Lease Managers, Asset Management Coordinator’s and the HNZ Standards Team.  She holds a degree from Massey University majoring in Property Valuation and Management and has worked in the property industry for over 30 years, mostly in the commercial property sector, with Housing New Zealand being her first foray into the residential property.  Her love of property began with her first job at Fletcher Challenge during the price and wage freeze of the 80’s (although this may be ageing her…) as well as being part of the Kiwi Properties team from when it first established its property management arm.  What she has learnt is property is a means to an end, and not an end in and of itself.  Getting it right in property, means having a full understanding of your customer and how they intend to use the property, so that the property can be built to respond accordingly.   Getting social housing right is a challenge that she enjoys every day.
