Anyos Gonczy General Manager

Property Management

My name is Anyos Gonczy and I am the owner of Inspire NZ. To say that I am proud of my team of 25+ highly capable individuals would be an understatement. I am delighted to work with such a fantastic and committed group of people and this has been the cornerstone of our success over the past decade. We provide vendors and landlords with our services all over NZ and clients are engaging Inspire in volume on the back of years of strong performance in the marketplace. To simply put it, we just care about every transaction no matter what value it may be.

About me, I am a very lucky father to my son and daughter and have the most amazing woman by my side whom I have had the pleasure of being with for almost 20 years. For me it is all about spending time with my favourite people and enjoying life. I enjoy business and with that in mind, doing a good job for my clients is non-negotiable.

Michelle Stanborough General Manager

Property Sales

Hi, I’m Michelle Stanborough, and I’m super excited to be working with the team at Inspire Real Estate.


My role (well my passion really) is to ensure you have the best possible work-life/life-balance as a salesperson you can possibly have.


I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being a salesperson myself for the last 17 or so years (since early 2002), and can’t wait to share this enthusiasm with you personally!

Ensuring you enjoy your work, whilst not missing out on the things that are important to you, like family, travel and sport, is my priority and passion.


In 2011 I completed a graduate diploma in real estate at Massey University (boring but important!).


I’ve put aside working for a globally award-winning team, where I was also the licensee for many years, to follow my dream of introducing agents to a truly better real estate path.


All I do in this role is support YOU and YOUR career! I’m here for whatever you need big or small. I have no other sideline projects or distraction, so I’m all YOURS!



I can’t wait to introduce you to the rest of our amazing team.

Peter Schmidt Real Estate Salesperson


Peter truly believes in the principles of Inspire Real Estate and is confident in how they will be embraced by the Whanganui community.

Having lived in Whanganui for the last 27 years he’s gained a considerable understanding of the needs of the local community. Working in sales throughout this time he has proven to be excellent at listening to what the client wants and needs. Over the last six years, he has been working in the real estate industry and is passionate about the local market and its substantial growth, particularly over the last three years. He is especially focused on ensuring his clients are happy with the final outcome in each and every sale.

His working mantra has always been to try and help whomever he deals with, and believes real estate is the absolute industry to achieve this, as their home is generally the major investment in one’s life. To sell it for the best price possible, and see the results for his clients, gives him immense satisfaction.

Socially he loves playing golf and has done for some time. Sadly, the results don’t reflect the time he has put into the sport. Walking with his wife also fills part of his life.

His grandchildren play a big part in his life, and he visits them whenever he can.

Peter is very excited about working with Inspire Real Estate and successfully integrating the company into the Whanganui community.

Lisa Brown Real Estate Salesperson


Hi, I am Lisa Brown and I am excited to be working in Gisborne with Inspire Real Estate bringing sellers and buyers together with a fun, no-stress, caring attitude.

A fascination for property and enthusiasm to help people acquire their dream home has inspired my passion for real estate.

When I’m not helping my real estate clients and customers, I enjoy relaxing with my partner pottering around our home and gardens. (Pottering is my term for getting a lot done without having a to-do list). Or participating in classic motorcycle and vintage car events.

After finishing my formal education with University Entrance, I took on challenging vocations that pushed me to excel. I completed extra-curricula business studies whilst striving for the next level in business management.  Owning Sign Businesses for over 25 years, chairing club meetings and organising social events, has enabled me to hone my social skills. I quickly found that I love working with people and helping them achieve their goals.  The reward is a happy event with positive results and smiles. 

You will also find me punctual, responsible and reliable in my position as your property salesperson. Be rest assured you can count on me any time of day when you have a question or concern, I will listen and follow through. I have an incredibly strong work ethic and you will find my enthusiasm and integrity as well as my sense of humour infectious! 

I am proud to be part of a highly motivated INSPIRE team!
