Property Manager since 2003
Business Owner since 2005

Hi, I'm Lynnette. You may have seen me around - I am usually dressed wearing something orange, driving my orange car. I am passionate about growing people, both with their property ownership goals, and in themselves.

After a career spanning 10 years in the RNZAF, my husband and I moved to Nelson and started a family. I then spent 5 years as a full-time property investor, before establishing Wizard Home Loans, Nelson Bays. With the closure of Wizard NZ, I have now rebranded and developed my own business model, Lynnette Butler, The Property Shoppe.

I am the problem solver, and the outside the box thinker.  Read more about me, and our family’s investing story here - as featured in February 2010 NZ Property Investor Magazine!


Jo is the property manager technician at The Property Shoppe. Her role is to manage our Nelson properties working closely with the tenants to ensure both their needs, and those of the landlord, are met. Lynnette covers for Jo if she is unavailable, and acts as an advisor as Jo works though the various situations that arise when letting property. Jo and Lynnette have known each other for 10 years, and have very complimentary personalities.
Jo has been a  Property Manager since 2008.

    Karryn started with The Property Shoppe in Oct 2012, and is learning the role of Property Technician.  Karryn joins The Property Shoppe with a background as a college level sports coach and club secretary/co-ordinator, which is serving her well in her new role!
