Our host, Lodge managing director Jeremy O’Rourke, is joined by two experts in assisting first home buyers to get ready to transact: Sam Douglas, partner at Hamilton law firm iCLAW and Andrew Bindon, Residential and Lifestyle Sales Consultant for Lodge. Tune in as they guide you through the process of buying your first home in the current economic climate, including why a good lawyer is crucial to have on your team.

Jeremy O'Rourke, Managing Director

A self-described ‘enthusiast’, Jeremy O’Rourke has grown a career out of high energy, big dreams, a strong work ethic, and the utmost belief that the key to great leadership is creating more leaders around you.

After completing a Bachelor of Management Studies and graduating with Honours (BMS Hons) at the University of Waikato, Jeremy went on to spend 7 years with Reebok as a Marketing Manager. Looking for a new challenge, in 1997 he channelled his natural ability for sales into the real estate industry.

By 2008 he was in the Managing Director’s chair. His influence on company performance and sales is evident, with Lodge performing well each year in the REINZ Waikato/BOP Awards.
