Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Kemeys Brothers
Born and bred in Lower Hutt, Don Elsey first entered the world of real estate across the ditch, in Sydney, back in 2003.
A natural from day one, he was Rookie of the Year in his first year and Number 1 salesperson in New South Wales for 2004 and 2005.
In his fourth year on the job he established his own business, enjoying great success over the following decade.
Coming back to his home patch in 2015 was an exciting move for Don, especially as he now had a wife and six children in tow!
After a short stint in a different sales field he’s now returning to the world he really loves, which is real estate, and he’s thrilled to be working with the well-established team at Ray White.
Having completed over 300 residential sales during his career, Don has finely tuned and effective communication and negotiation skills and he takes enormous pride in using them to achieve the best possible outcome for his vendors.
He’s friendly, down-to-earth and approachable and he’s quite an expert on the golf course too, although family life always comes first.
When listing your property with Don you can be assured of first-class service along with complete respect, honesty and transparency.
Don’s happy to talk to his vendors at any time during the sometimes stressful selling process, reassuring them with a wisdom born from extensive experience.
Exceptionally good service at a very competitive price. Easy to contact and responsive, also recognised that we were selling for estate and understood that process so informing potential purchasers accordingly, had excellent appreciation of how to utilise that situation to get the price we did. One of the beneficiaries asked us to thank him for the unexpectedly good result!
I would definitely recommend Don if you are thinking of buying or selling a house. He was professional, friendly and ready to answer any of the many questions I had for him. He has a genuine interest in people and getting the right solution for their needs and is more than willing to go that extra mile. His attitude and expertise made the whole process seamless for me from start to finish.
easy to deal with and kept me informed on progress in a friendly but prompt manner
I can’t say enough about Don’s professionalism, true caring nature and knowledge of real estate processes. I contacted him on the way home from work to enquire about a property, he arranged a viewing within hours, and it was perfect for our family. The same evening we were back at the office, after hours to start the process of submitting an offer. Don was in communication every step of the way and always available to answer my million questions. I could not have been happier or more impressed with the service Don provided, he really went the extra mile. I would recommend contacting Don the minute you are thinking of buying or selling.
