  • Robert McCormack AREINZ FNZIM

    CEO, Grenadier Real Estate Ltd

    You don’t spend 39 years in real estate without learning a few things, so it’s fair to say there’s not much about the industry that Rob McCormack doesn’t know, or hasn’t seen before. And one of the most important of lessons, he believes, is that real estate is not so much about property, it’s more about people. It was Rob’s sincere, on-going interest in people that first lead him to a real estate career in 1979 and it’s his ability to forge genuine connections with them that helped him become, firstly, one of the most successful sales consultants in New Zealand and then franchise owners in New Zealand, not just in Harcourts, but in the country. As well as that wealth of knowledge, Rob, who was inducted into Harcourts Hall of Fame in 2004 and named a fellow of The New Zealand Institute of Management in 2005, is known for the boundless energy and enthusiasm which he brings to the business – as well as to his fishing trips or enjoying a few beers with his mates. Rob has two Schnauzers and a dedicated wife of 47 years. He set up Harcourts Grenadier in 1991, and has seen it rate consistently at number one in its group for Harcourts in New Zealand before rising to be the number two franchise and number one office world wide by 2015. These days Grenadier has grown to eight offices and a team of over 200, but Rob’s level of availability, commitment and passion is the same as it was in 1979. He’s at work every day by 6.30am leading by example when it comes to the importance of goal setting, persistence, connection with clients, and committing to excellence in business practices. Success for Rob is seeing his people grow and find their own success; and seeing them develop their own commitment to providing the best levels of service, and the best possible outcomes for their clients as they buy and sell their homes.

  • Alison Carter

    Alison Carter

    Licensed Sales Consultant

    Alison Carter – ‘Hill and Seaside Specialist’ If the name sounds familiar, it’s because Alison Carter has received acclaim and recognition since day one of her Real Estate career. Ranked Number One Salesperson in the Ferrymead office every year since she began there in 1995 she has consistently featured amongst the city's, and indeed the country's top performing agents. With a sales and marketing background, she’s a highly driven and motivated professional. Representing New Zealand in Water Polo has given her a competitive edge and with this she also brings a refreshing mix of energy, friendliness and expertise to Real Estate. While working city-wide, Alison’s specialty is in hill and seaside properties and living locally gives her clients the added benefit of being able to reach her easily and quickly when necessary, and provides Alison with an intimate knowledge of her specialist area. Alison’s success has come about through hard work, being proactive, having innovative marketing skills, the ability to think laterally, and a strong desire to continually achieve fantastic results for her clients. She employs a full-time P.A. to look after the IT and administration side of the process thus leaving Alison free to be a ‘hands on’ agent, who prides herself on responding quickly, and exceeding expectations. This versatility has seen her deal in all manner of properties – from first home buyers to investors, from developers to those seeking luxury properties. With such a diverse range of clientele Alison has had to learn an equally varied skill set, and her clients are the beneficiaries of a wide service encompassing expert advice on presentation, interior design trends, council regulations, and building codes, to name but a few. Alison has proven time and time again to be the very best. And when dealing with your biggest asset, don’t you think you deserve the best?

  • Michelle Ward

    Michelle Ward

    Licensed Sales Consultant

    When it comes to listings, ‘the more the merrier’ is a saying I certainly don’t subscribe to. Instead, I prefer to work with a limited number of properties at any one time. That enables me to dedicate my undivided attention to each client, and allows me to spend more time marketing each home and researching every opportunity. It also helps me create a more relaxed environment. All too often property transactions can feel rushed and stressful, and I go out of my way to put my clients at ease, ensuring they have the time, space and information they need to make thoroughly considered choices. It’s an approach that works. Over the course of my career to date I’ve sold more than $100 million worth of property, successfully working with both buyers and sellers right across the city. I’m an expert when it comes to coastal and hillside properties, calling on my passion for the area which stretches from Ferrymead to Sumner to market everything from investment units to luxury residences. Outside of the office I can be found mountain biking, paddle boarding or simply enjoying the great outdoors, and that boundless energy and enthusiasm invariably transfers across to my professional life. I’m a highly organised person who goes to great lengths to ensure no stone is left unturned for my clients. If you’re looking for a salesperson who’ll take the time to get to know you, will communicate throughout the process, and will go above and beyond the call of duty to achieve a great result, then we should talk.
