In my long experience of buying and selling homes in a number of countries, it is rare to meet an individual of the caliber of Chris Hannam, who recently negotiated the successful sale of our much loved home at 80 Rarangi Heights in Parua Bay. Chris has all the attributes that you would wish for in an estate agent who is handling what is typically one of your biggest assets and all of the emotional baggage that can go with that. He is personable, ethical and a great communicator and strategist who was always prepared to listen carefully to our suggestions and concerns. He is enthusiastic and worked long hours on the assignment and we often met late at night to catch-up on progress. Chris always maintained the highest level of ethics in dealing with our concerns about confidentiality. Mairi and I wish him well in his chosen career and know that he will do well at whatever he chooses to do. We would also like to thank the Ray White team for their professionalism in completing the successful sale of our home. The marketing materials, regular reports and feedback were all of a very high standard. Kind regards, Ian Hendrikse & Mairi Lauchland

Dave & Sally

Recently we purchased a property assisted by Chris Hannam from Ray White Allen’s Whangarei, while living in a different NZ city. This open letter comments on that experience. With the intention of securing our future property, we engaged with Chris to show us some options when we visited the region on a short holiday. Chris quickly grasped the type of property we were seeking and selected a short list that we could view in the available time. One of those properties was of interest that we went on to purchase. Working at a distance, Chris facilitated the information gathering, questions and answers with the vendor and provided insights into the local market. This went on for several months and involved numerous emails and phone calls. We were impressed by the calm, conscientious and professional manner Chris brought to the process, never did we feel any pressure or loss of his engagement. Every question and request was followed up diligently. We highly recommend Chris’ services to anyone considering buying or selling property in the Whangarei region.

Neville C

Chris was great to deal with, always responded in a timely manner, keep me informed and achieved us the sale, which hasn't been the case with past agents.


friendly professinal very awear of market your lucky to have him


Very helpful and friendly and hardworking


Chris brought the energy and impetus that meant we sold our property quickly. He was professional at all times and always got back to us by emial or phone quickly which meant we were fully informed throughout the sales process and therefore felt in control. We got the impression Chris 'hustled' (in a good way) by networking and matching buyers with sellers - everything you expect from an estate agent.

David & Amanda

If anyone is looking for a fresh keen local real estate agent I can highly recommend Chris Hannam at Ray White Realty. He has his finger on the pulse locally and is very professional in his dealings. It takes a special kind of credibility to manage to work and play in the same area and I believe Chris has it. Thanks for assisting us into our last property investment and sale Chris.

We can 100% recommened Chris Hannam as a real estate agent. I honestly don't think we would have made it through the process of selling our house with out his hard work and support. He really is a real estate agent with a difference, knows the market and is reliable and real. Thanks heaps Chris for going the extra mile. Shannon Parker

He was very helpful and easy to deal with. Kept me updated with activity regarding the property.


Chris has been an extremely motivated and enthusiastic agent. He is not shy of hard work and has put in a huge effort with researching our property and marketing it well. This has resulted in a lot of interest and putting lot of perspective buys through. He has made this process easy with his friendly professional manner and expert advice. I consider we where very lucky to have discovered Chris and it will result in a smooth stress free sale. I have every confidence I can trust Chris to do his job and leave him to it. You could not ask for anything more in an agent with excellent communication skills, regular feed back and weekly property reports. Chris takes his job seriously I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him.... you may have to wait in line though.:)

Carolyn Findlater

Chris was a huge help in securing my new home at Pataua - having that local knowledge of the area was a God send and he communicated really well throughout the entire process. Chris went above and beyond with extra help after settlement and I can highly recommend Chris as a great person to deal with when seeking out a new home - thanks so much Chris for everything!

Meg B

Chris went out of his way to find a property for me and even though the negotiations got complicated (another buyer got involved) he was clear in his communications and asked help from his supervisor when things did get murky
