Elpi Lakalakis

Area Group Manager



Elpi Lakakis loves interacting with people. It is her natural ability to communicate with people from all walks of life, along with her 30 years experience working within the hospitality industry that drives Elpi to create unique and positive realty experiences for her clients. For Elpi, people come first and her ability to listen and put them at ease means she can quickly evaluate her client’s needs. Thinking beyond the sale is also part of the process; Elpi believes that helping clients find solutions that are right for them is important for their future happiness and overall satisfaction. She loves positive outcomes and works hard to achieve them. Elpi’s warm and friendly personality is backed by a strong work ethic, ingrained as a teenager when she worked in her brother’s restaurant and then went on, with her husband Dimitri, to run two successful Christchurch businesses - Costas Souvlaki Bar (the first in New Zealand) and Costas Taverna.

I’m a Travel Broker – check out www.katrinaharding.travel – still operating throughout Covid, although I’m not quite as busy. I love travel and I love to travel and to assist my clients book their dream holidays, wherever they may be. As travel returns networking will renew its importance as people will look for the hand-holding and support that a professional can give, passing on border rules and updated country entry requirements. TNG is a great way to connect people and ensure contacts are looked after.
