“Results that move you”
Passion + Ambition+ Drive= Results
Some people go through life searching for what they were born to do sadly some never find that happiness and reward in a career. To me it was simple, I was born to be in sales as early as my first Lemonade stand at 3 years old outside my parents country hotel to Sales Manager/Sales Director within roles in industries such as Radio, Digital, Print/Publishing, Signage ,on line B2B, Recruitment and Stock and Station. It’s always been sales and always will be.
I am proud to call myself a Wellingtonian having moved here in 1985 from a small Town to work for Fairfax formerly (NZ News) and to play premiere rugby. Wellington has been truly rewarding to me I love it with a passion. I met my wife here in the Capital and raised our children here my daughter has now finished her schooling at Samuel Marsden and my Son is currently at Wellington College. Apart from a stint due to my late wife’s Illness where we moved to Australia for a few years we call Wellington home.
I am passionate about sport and have coached an all-conquering Under 21 Premiere Rugby side, I have enjoyed helping mould boys from all different economic backgrounds and races into men who became friends, committed to being a part of a team and I like to think I have changed their lives in some cases from being off the rails to being part of society.
I am a great believer in giving back hence I have chosen Rugby, Basketball, Boxing/ cross fit as sports to dedicate spare time to. I am very passionate about supporting charities mine are Breast Cancer, Child Cancer and Mary Potter Hospice.
After been told by so many people over the years I should be in Real Estate I made the move two years ago and I feel my results speak for themselves. My approach to Real Estate is one of “working in a partnership with my vendors, being honest with my appraisals (I don’t buy listings by promising unrealistic prices, as trust is broken from the outset) and most of all keeping my vendors and buyers informed all the way through the sales process.
So my commitment to you is if you are willing to trust me with your greatest asset, I will deliver you the best service, best advice, best marketing and The Best Price the market has. I have had a lot of success selling homes other agents have not been able to sell. I have lived in a number of suburbs so I know the City well. Here’s what a few of my clients have said about me.
“We needed someone who knew how to bring the key players to the table, someone who could deal with complex and sensitive developments, we needed someone who delivers, and we needed Chris. We have a huge land holding in the Bay of Plenty on a very sensitive island, the issues surrounding it needed the right agent who was connected to the right networks to make this happen and realise the dream by creating legacy ownerships for generations to come. Why did we not use a local agent, we looked we listened to them all but we know Chris we know his ability to deliver so we have engaged him to bring this Multi-million dollar project together”.
“As one of the Original Developers of both Harbourlights and Harbourside subdivisions I retained several sections so after relocating to the USA I decided to put these on the market. I needed an agent who believed in the location, could sell the buyers the dream but one that could obtain the premium prices I wanted, enter Chris and he over delivered for me”.
Alex Knowles - San Francisco
“As we all know monolithic homes are not the easiest to sell especially if they have had water ingress issues, so you need an agent who knows them and so we engaged Chris as he came highly recommended to us by our lawyer, and Chris delivered us 6 buyers in 3 weeks, and got the sale done at a price we were happy at “
Craig Hudgell - Khandallah
“When it comes to selling a home with a RV of $2,050,000 in a market that was short on top end buyers you really need an agent who is willing to work extremely hard, who knows his marketing and can tap into potential networks. Well Chris is just that agent and he delivered the result we wanted”.
Danny and Robyn - Karori
“We originally had our 4 hectares of bare land on the market with another agent for 2 years without success, when we heard Chris had started in real estate we engaged him immediately and within 30 days through smart marketing and hard work the land sold at a premium price”
