Ferne Butler

Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Mission Bay

It was Grantland Rice, the famous American sportswriter who once said “Golf gives you an insight into human nature, your own as well as your opponent’s”

Ferne Butler has been playing golf and fine-tuning her people skills and understanding of human nature ever since she picked up her first driver, many years ago.

With a background in administration and credit control, Ferne is organised methodical and strategic in her real estate business. She started selling homes over 25 years ago in Auckland at a time when female agents were scarce. Her first year in the business, she hit the ground running and sold many homes. Ferne’s many awards over the years reflect her natural ability in this profession. Three months after starting in the industry Ferne won top salesperson in the region. In no time at all she was one of the top 20 agents nationwide. This is a woman who doesn’t waste time – she just gets her head down and goes for it. She brings to the Ray White Mission Bay team a wealth of industry knowledge and a genuine interest in and consideration for people.

Ferne is a thinker. Her style is one which involves a deliberate and measured assessment of the challenge before her and then she gives 110% when the moment calls for it. It’s a bit like hitting a golf ball. Weighing up the distance needed to go, choosing the right tools for the job and then hitting the mark and getting a satisfying result within the desired time frame.

Ferne’s refreshing uncomplicated approach, uncanny ability to “match-make” a buyer when selling her vendor’s home and her relaxed friendly manner, has inspired her many happy clients to turn to her again and again over the years to have her take care of them in the selling of their homes.

Auckland born and raised, Ferne has an enviable network of contacts. She knows a lot of people and they know her. Ferne’s family and close friends are her inspiration to achieve and push herself to reach her goals

It makes logical sense to engage Ferne Butler’s services – she’s intelligent, skilled, and a long-term relationship builder. You’ll know where you are with Ferne – she’s prepared and ready to get your home sold with no stone unturned, for the very best result possible.
