Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Howick
Hi, I’m Curtis Mountfort and I love selling homes.
As at September 2016 I was placed 20th for all Ray White agents in NZ (1500 + agents) for business growth / increase on last year's sales. For 2016 - 2017 sales turnover I was recognised and awarded the selling milestone of Ray White Premier member.
I have invested in local property for several decades and been a trusted property advisor to investor clients. Prior to selling real estate I owned a Chartered accounting practice for 15 years and worked in Chartered accounting and asset realisation work for a total of 23 years.
In 2016 I sold twenty five properties ranging in price from $520,000 for a cross lease home in Papakura, to $1,650,000 for a two dwelling property in Bucklands Beach. Several of these sales were street records at the time of sale, at 1/66 Finnerty Avenue Howick, 64 Patons Road Howick, and 3 Leewood Place, Pakuranga Heights.
Proving I go the extra mile for my clients, I have listed and sold properties as far afield as Waiheke Island and Clarks Beach, together with properties in Glendowie, Panmure, Mount Roskill, and Papakura.
I'm married to Nicola and we reside in Howick with our four daughters, who attend local schools, and are members of various sports clubs, and the local youth theatre.
I’m an advocate for all of the benefits of living locally including the Village lifestyle, eastern beaches, quality schools and fantastic recreational facilities available here.
I give back to the community as a volunteer chairman of the BotanyLife Community Trust, and treasurer of the HCYT Howick Children and Youth Theatre.
Whether it’s the sale of your family home with many sentimental memories, or a trade up to your next dream residence, I understand the importance of consistently delivering excellent service.
Effective planning, efficient communication and attention to detail make the selling transition so much easier.
I would love to chat with you about how I can sell your home for the best possible price in the most efficient timeframe - utilising my local knowledge, networks and financial advice. Together we can achieve your buying and selling goals.
All clients can be assured of 100% dedicated service. My mission statement and slogan is: Sell Well – call Curtis now!
It is without hesitation that we recommend Curtis to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. Curtis spent numerous weekends with us going to open homes and helping us to find the perfect property for our family. He did a huge amount of behind the scenes work with agents to help us be completely informed about all of the homes we were interested in. When we finally found “the one”, Curtis came to the auction and fully supported us through this process. We then had the pleasure of enlisting Curtis’ services to sell our home. We have nothing but positive things to say about Curtis, from his completely professional manner at all times, outstanding communication skills, and hard-work getting the best possible outcome for us when our house went to auction. We were thrilled with the outcome and the fact that Curtis made the whole process stress-free and ultimately very successful. We highly recommend Curtis as an agent whether you are looking to buy or sell a property.

We asked Curtis Mountfort to market our Auckland property – a cross lease duplex with a few imperfections that was what you might call a ‘niche’ offering. So it was just as well that service Curtis provided went beyond the usual service you might expect from a real estate agent. Curtis provided sound advice on presentation of our property including design and staging of rooms, and how to ‘declutter’. Curtis even went so far as to lend us his trailer and a hand to help us move some of our extra furniture to storage. We were kept well informed in the interest in our property and on local sales throughout the marketing programme. Curtis followed up interest diligently and his efforts resulted in a multi offer situation, this at a time when the Auckland market was slowing down. We got the result that we wanted and we have no hesitation in recommending Curtis if you want the same!

It is our pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Mr Curtis Mountfort. We listed our house with Curtis and being first time vendors he has made the whole experience as smooth as possible, and with the least amount of stress for us. Curtis has offered advice when needed, kept us up to date with progress and guided us through the quick and efficient sale of our house. He has also given us some great practical advice to market our house. Throughout the whole process he has been professional, friendly and supportive. We would be happy to recommend Curtis’ services to anyone looking to sell or buy a house.

I was greatly pleased with the fast and efficient service we received from Curtis with the recent sale of our first home. Curtis helped us navigate the complexities of the current market and ensured we arrived at a most pleasing settlement.
We recently had the pleasure of engaging Curtis to sell our home in Auckland. He was very professional, knowledgeable of the area we were selling in and reliable. Curtis clearly laid out our selling options (detailing pros and cons of each), and then providing sound marketing advice once we had decided on our selling method. Curtis’ wife, Nicola, also provided some great home staging advice which we took on board and implemented in marketing our home. It was great to deal directly with Curtis throughout the process. We would have no hesitation in recommending Curtis to any prospective real estate vendor.

Curtis was highly organised and he impressed me with his clear explanations of paperwork and procedures. He was very easy to work with. I would highly recommend him to anyone wishing to sell a house.

It is our pleasure to recommend Curtis Mountfort to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. We have known Curtis for many years and have always found him to be highly personable and a real family man who's very honest and exudes friendliness. When we first talked with Curtis about looking for a property it wasn't long until we were having coffee to discuss what our needs were and how he could best be of service. From then on he was pro-active and working hard to help us find the perfect place. He was always great at answering our questions and brilliant at returning our many phone call and emails. When we made times to visit properties he was very punctual and respectful of peoples' homes when we were entering - we loved that! Once we settled on the perfect property he supported us through the auction process and stuck by us on the night of the auction which helped us to feel at ease during a time of high stress. Curtis showed great interest in us as a family and has also gone beyond his call of duty to ensure things went smoothly after the auction. He even dropped in with his girls a few months later to touch base and make sure that all was going well....legend! We can say with all confidence that Curtis Mountfort is a real estate agent you can trust.
