  • David Findlay

    David Findlay

    Sales Manager & Part Owner

    Having been brought up in Real Estate, David has since been buying and selling for over 13 years. This vast experience mixed with new age sales and management styles and a great affiliation with technology allows a unique and upmarket way to ensure the best results for all buyers and sellers. A close knowledge of the financial market aligned with mortgage broking and banking experience will ensure you are getting the full suite of advice, the full package. For what others are saying about me... It is refreshing to meet an agent who not only meets but exceeds expectations. David is categorically the best agent that we have ever worked with in terms of marketing strategy, timely and consistent communication and determination to meet agreed targets. He is a positive, engaging, helpful and reliable and his unwavering enthusiasm buffers the ebbs and flows of the market response. David deserves to do well in the real estate profession and certainly earned every cent of his commission in our view but on top of that he gained our trust and confidence. Chris and Sue, Mt Albert I have no hesitation recommending David Findlay at all. He is honest, reliable and always kept me informed of what was happening throughout the process. More importantly, it really felt like we were on the same side as he was going the extra mile to ensure a great result. This was shown through his professional negotiation, his assistance in repairs and house presentation, and even his ongoing support after the sale to help me find another property. David instills confidence and integrity, and was a real pleasure to deal with Elizabeth David was a charismatic and honest sales professional. It truly felt as if we were working together as a team to sell the house with his constant updates on the progress. We not only had a great result, but we were at ease throughout the whole process, which is something we were previously very wary of. We are so happy with our decision to work with David, and would happily recommend him to anyone else looking to buy or sell Seth & Pam - Ellerslie 2016

  • Kathy Passier

    Kathy Passier

    Marketing & Negotiation Consultant

    FOR RESULTS THAT MOVE YOU If honesty, integrity, professionalism and experience are important to you, then look no further; call me today. The numbers speak for themselves, I have negotiated over $125 million of Real Estate across Auckland. Achieved 3 NATIONAL SALES TITLES New Zealand Bayleys National Rookie 2004 New Zealand No.1 Ray White Lifestyle Agent 2008 + Elite Titles Canon New Zealand No.1 Sales 1987 + IBM National Presentation award 1985 I am often asked: where does my passion for Real Estate come from? To me it’s about establishing relationships with people from all walks of life, working hard to help them realise their dreams, managing their stress (with a mixture of honesty, empathy and plenty of laughter) and then celebrating their success at the end. I have established and run my own successful businesses, and bought and sold numerous properties so I understand the needs of people buying and selling Real Estate. My life skills, attention to detail and multi-tasking ability enables me to communicate freely with you during the marketing of your home and especially during the critical stage of negotiation. It’s a privilege to be trusted to sell your property—and I won't let you down. During the past 10 years I have sold in excess of $185 million dollars of property ranging to $6 million for a 10 acre lifestyle block in Karaka. Every client I treated with the respect and honesty I would like to be given if it was my home. My job is not finished once your property is under offer—it’s not over until it’s sold and even then I stay in touch and continue to assist my vendors and buyers in any way I can. Real Estate is my career, I am professional and you can be confident that I will present your property to the market and achieve the best possible price at the same time maintaining my integrity, honesty and loyalty to you. See what my recent clients have to say: “Once again Kathryn you have provided us with exceptional service, from advertising advice, marketing, and open-days, through to negotiation with competing buyers to achieve an outstanding result – all for a unique property with many complex issues. We appreciated the savings in the advertising budget i.e keeping it simple yet still attracting many potential buyers. Your extraordinary skills in achieving an unconditional cash offer during the tender process, and then negotiating with all other interested parties to determine the successful purchaser, was once again remarkable. We also value your continued liaison with the purchaser and us up to settlement day”. Mary-Anne and Allan Goddard "Kathy managed the sale of our 3 Auckland investment properties; a CBD apartment and 2 suburban houses and from the start to the end of the process they go beyond the expected. Before the sale we received great advice about presenting the property, market statistics and the strategy we should employ. She helped us prepare each property for sale, provided good contacts for trade work and even got her hands dirty in the garden. Pricing by negotiation ensured that all buyers came to the table and Kathy’s negotiating ensured we got top dollar. After offers were accepted Kathy continued working hard to ensure we had back up offers, and communicated effectively and sticking points worked out. Best agent in Auckland!" Gavin & Julia Thornber, Mellons Bay "I recently purchased my 1st home from Kathy. She guided me through the entire process with such ease making it a very enjoyable experience. Kathy was always available to answer my many questions. She is very professional and deserve all the success she has achieved. I couldn't be happier". Buyer : Lynette Satchell "Her professionalism in the way she went about her job was impressive. From our first meeting she created a confidence in us that enabled us to leave the process of selling to her, without the worry of snags. She was both very courteous, co-operative & has excellent communication skills. You can be sure that because of our experience with her, we will recommend her to others, anytime an opportunity arises". Graham & Jenny McHugh “Very enthusiastic, had a good knowledge of how to market the property and what the best way to sell the property was. We literally let Kathryn do what she felt was best, which was a good decision." Paul Stewart & Delia Lees "Hi Kathryn. Well!! What a remarkable job! Thank you so much for the effort you put in, and the speedy sale. Mum is pleased - and so she should be : a good price, and a pretty quick and painless sale. I can't thank you enough for the care you took. You have already been recommended to others in the street!! (and others beside this too). So - thank you. Now, we get on with packing. Catherine Peters "Kathryn is totally professional, dedicated and made us feel 100% that she was committed to getting us the best possible result, which she did. Her support and advice was amazing and Keith and I cannot recommend her enough!” Keith and Jan Ross "Professional & Informative approach on marketing our home. She kept in constant communication with us, consulting with us every step of the way. Friendly & down to earth approach. Always following up the buyers" John & Mary List
