Daniel Horrobin

Sales Manager, Ray White City Apartments

After spending 8 years in the automotive industry (where he sold alloy wheels and tyres), Daniel embarked on a career in real estate, quickly establishing himself as someone with an uncanny ability to achieve outstanding results regardless of market conditions.

Since joining the Ray White City Apartments team back in 2006 this highly motivated salesperson has enjoyed a strong presence in the market, consistently listing, and selling, more properties than his competitors. He has considerable knowledge of the local market, takes great pride in delivering sound, honest advice, and has a track record that’s virtually unparalleled.

Daniel teamed up with Damian Piggin in 2007, to form TEAMDD and along with the other four members of their team, have since taken the apartment market to a whole new level.
With the support of Amanda their Personal Assistant, and Beccah, their admin assistant who are both employed full time by Damian and Daniel they help to ensure every aspect of a Vendors’ requirements are met.

Damian and Daniel have since completed a record number of sales in The Sebel in Auckland's Viaduct, Tetra House in Wakefield Street and The Quadrant Hotel in Waterloo Quadrant to name but a few buildings.

What drives this team that are continually getting the best results?  Driven by achieving and breaking record prices and customer satisfaction the formula is simple, offer a professional service, communicate and exceed vendors expectations - its that's simple.

Daniel is now sharing all his experience and knowledge with the City Apartments team as Sales Manager

I'll be writing to commend the whole team involved in this sale, but briefly, Daniel's email to me 6 April said "You can be confident that based on our experience with selling CBD car parks... we will achieve you a fantastic outcome". Come the sale at auction of Carpark 5 Unit BA 148 Quay St on 14 December for $265K, the outcome couldn't have been more fantastic!


Very responsive and great customer service.

No idea who Daniel Horrobin is - I was dealing with Krister


If I was awarding stars then it’s 5 for Daniel Horrobin! I have had many real estate dealings over the years and can honestly say this was the best. I was truly impressed with Daniel’s focus, energy, professionalism and friendliness! It was amost pleasant, un-stressful experience which delivered an excellent result in super quick time. At every stage Daniel kept me informed of where things were up to. He has a knack of making everything run smoothly but with some fun and enjoyment in it too! I would certainly recommend Danielfor truly effective real estate service”

It is with pleasure that I write to commend Daniel Horrobin & Damian Piggin and the Apartment Team at Ray White real estate of the sterling job they did to sell our apartments in Cityzone. It is without doubt that I would recommend them as being some of the best in their field and unlike other real estate experiences I found this one without hiccups. We were always kept informed of the progress and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. The reporting and communication were exceptional. The City apartment specialists are indeed a team that I would not hesitate in recommending to others. Certainly made the real estate journey a pleasurable one. From our first meeting with the Secretary Amanda Fonoti, who went out of her way to deal with exceptional circumstances in getting signatures from an overseas director right through to the last signing off, we left the work up to them and they delivered. Well done team – my heartfelt thanks for the splendid job in selling our Cityzone apartments.

Peter Boyes - Hannaford

We have had the privilege of listing our two inner city apartments with Damian Piggin and Daniel Horrobin of Ray White Real Estate. Together they worked tirelessly on our behalf to achieve an outstanding sales result for both properties at auction. Both Damian and Daniel listened to the needs of our personal situation and went out of their way to customise the process for us. Their communication was fantastic and we were kept fully informed every step of the way. We have no hesitation in recommending these two outstanding and professional gentlemen as agents to list and sell your property.

As an offshore seller of my Auckland Apartment, I needed to make sure that I had an honest agent who specialised in the apartment market to ensure I achieved the best price. After speaking with Daniel, I found him to be professional and very knowledgeable of not only my apartment and building, but the apartment market in general. Having previously had my apartment listed with another agent who was unsuccessful in achieving a sale for me, I then engaged Daniel as my agent. He was very proactive in liaising with my property manager to gain access to the apartment and show qualified buyers through, which resulted in not only a successful sale at a level I was very happy with, the offer was nearly 20% higher than my previous agent could achieve. With Daniels professional advice and assistance, I am pleased to say that my sale went through very smoothly. Having dealt with a number of agents in the past, I would highly recommend Daniel to anyone who is considering selling their Auckland City Apartment.

Walter Minnaar

The service was professional and exceeded my expectations over all aspects of the auctions.
