Sarah Wells

Estates Administrator

  • Bachelor of Arts

Sarah assists with the administration of our busy estates practice.

Sarah has a wealth of experience in law, having started in the profession straight out of university as a legal secretary. She started her career at Buddle Findlay – Sarah’s mother worked there as a legal executive for many years, so Sarah was quite at home, having visited the offices since she was eight years old.

After moving on, Sarah held various roles including enjoying working in London in a large corporates firm as well as in the Royal Courts of Justice. Upon returning to New Zealand, she returned to secretarial work until her first daughter was born.

Sarah started with us at Gaze Burt in 2016, already having some personal connections with existing staff – Margaret McKinnon was in her postnatal coffee group, and Tina Luff would sit next to Sarah’s mother on the bus when they both worked in the city. A small world!

Sarah enjoys her role in the estates team and finds satisfaction in helping our clients put affairs in order after a loss. She has great empathy with their situation, having had personal experience with living through a loss. Sarah relates exceptionally well to our estates clients and we often receive feedback on her efficiency and excellent communication.

Outside of work, Sarah is busy with her two daughters, who keep her well occupied with chauffeur and chef duties.
