Chris Smith

Sales Support, Ray White Waiheke

Chris Smith says the main kick he gets from selling real estate comes from helping people achieve their dreams.

Chris is well aware that buying a house is one of the biggest decisions people make in their lives. That’s why he always goes the extra distance for his clients.

“The key to a successful sale is listening to what people are saying; I treat them with respect, not just a voice on the end of a phone. I realise it’s a big thing, selling or buying a home. It can be very stressful.”

Chris comes to Ray White Waiheke from Te Awamutu with 20-plus years’ experience in retail, including running his own business.

“I came to Waiheke for the change of lifestyle. I’m a small town person not a city person.”

He’s loving the change of scene and pace.  While real estate keeps him on his toes with its challenges, it doesn’t tie him down to a desk 9 to 5. “It allows me time to do other things I have a passion for. In Te Awamutu I helped set up a trust for community safety and I want that involvement to continue here on the island.”

When he’s not marketing real estate or clinching a deal, Chris enjoys spending time with his family, his community work, of course, and he also fits in a bit of running.

“To me this job is about having a passion for the community and looking after people. And selling a house takes just one buyer in the right place at the right time.”
