Behind every good business, there’s a great administrator. Behind every great business, there’s an honest and trustworthy accounts expert. Luckily for Ray White Manurewa, Lynn Aldridge is all of these things. Referred to as their ‘accounts guru’, Lynn has spent a lifetime gaining extensive knowledge, skills and qualifications in her area of expertise.
Interestingly, Lynn started out as a registered community nurse, but after raising a family, felt she needed a change in direction, and enrolled in a Certificate in Business, Computers and Administration at Otago University, graduating in 1997. Her instincts were right, she found her niche in administration and accounts and hasn’t looked back since. Initially learning the ropes at a plant nursery, she moved to a property maintenance company who contracted to Housing New Zealand in 2001, giving her the first glimpse into the housing industry. Staying in the sector for over ten years allowed her to prove her capabilities beyond a doubt, but she wasn’t going to rest on her laurels. In 2009, Lynn began her NZ Diploma in Business (Accounting).
Four years ago, Lynn made a move to the private real estate world, but it was her role at Ray White which finally gave her the scope to reach her ultimate goal - qualification as an Accountant Technician. Due to her unwavering diligence and perseverance, Lynn reaches this milestone next year. Her solid planning, analytical and organisational skills ensure customers are always satisfied and that company business objectives are consistently met. Her love of balance, meticulous attention to detail, affinity with numbers, and ‘just getting things right’ makes Lynn the perfect fit for her job.
Out of the office, Lynn admits to a quiet life, a love of gardening and a good book. Interested in genealogy, Lynn devotes much of her time to creating her family tree, finding a lot of pleasure in learning about her history and ancestry.
