  • Chris Wright

    Chris Wright

    Chris’s global credentials in the international business market have introduced an exciting new dimension to our team. A natural-born seller, Chris has worked within building companies, financial organisations and professional services firms in London dealing with worldwide client bases. He knows how to deliver in fast-paced environments, is used to operating under pressure and has high-level strategic experience in delivering through sales. Having worked predominantly in construction, finance and property, Chris knows all about the industries you’ll encounter in your property purchase or sale. You can rest assured he’ll impart every ounce of knowledge to you and go above and beyond what your typical consultant can offer — putting you in an advantageous position from start to finish. In our opinion, though, Chris should’ve been in real estate from day one. He has a way of building rapport and putting people at ease that you don’t often see (and that you might not associate with real estate consultants!). He’s approachable, patient and amenable, and he offers trusted and valued service. It’s no surprise that his clients quickly become his friends. Chris loves to ski, mountain bike, run, cook and play golf, and he’s not scared to sizzle a sausage when asked. An active member of Wanaka Rotary and the Lake Wanaka Coastguard, it’s important to Chris to give back whilst he enjoys living in this piece of paradise. He even asked us to extend an invite for a round of golf or BBQ to you through this profile — hopefully you’re starting to get a sense of his friendly and easy-going nature! Chris loves real estate because homes are where families are made and memories are created. It’s fitting, then, that he and his wife Rebecca work together as The Wright Team at Harcourts Wanaka. The Wright Team has taken Wanaka by storm as the real estate duo who look after you, achieve outstanding results and help you make the Wright choice.

    Licensed Sales Consultant

    I have been working in real estate for a number of years now and love helping people with their property needs whether it be buying or selling. Working with honesty and integrity and keeping in close contact with all my vendors and buyers has enabled me to build solid relationships and establish a good network and database of customers. Helping clients achieve a successful result is very rewarding and what drives me to succeed, continually grow and improve my business. My husband and I moved to Wanaka from Colac Bay in Southland eight years ago to new challenges and haven't been disappointed. Wanaka is an especially beautiful and safe place to live and we really enjoy the four distinct seasons after moving from the south coast! My background is in banking, farming, small business management and property investment and so I have a broad base that helps me better understand my clients. I have three grown children who are all doing very well in their respective fields and when not working I am busy supporting my husband in his role as Pastor of a local church and leading the music team there. The role of a real estate salesperson has sometimes in the past been seen in a poor light. My aim is to show you that the new generation of salespeople, who are continually being upskilled can serve you with honesty and integrity to give you a rewarding and satisfying result. I am happy to say that I strive to be that salesperson.
