Gary Thomas

Licensee Salesperson - Elite Member 2017, Ray White Ellerslie

Marketing and negotiating properties has been my life and passion since 1996. With more than 19 successful years working predominantly in Ellerslie, Mt Wellington and Eastern Suburbs, I have been privileged to have helped hundreds of people buy and sell their homes.

I am committed to real estate for the long term and believe it is important for real estate salespeople to have as much knowledge as possible about market conditions, marketing strategies and legal requirements.  I believe that being caring and empathetic to my clients is how I develop and earn their trust and respect. I can easily relate to a variety of people and love working with diverse people from all walks of life. I especially enjoy the challenge of marketing different styles of houses in all different price brackets.

In order for me to maintain a high level of service, balance becomes a number one consideration with my young son being the real focus in my life.  I have a passion for rugby, having played for Counties in the late 80’s with my other interests including yacht racing, fishing, diving, surfing and off road motor bike riding.

I pride myself on straight forward, honest communication and providing the best service of any Real Estate Salesperson in New Zealand. A testament of my professionalism and firm work ethics are that over 85% of my clients are either repeat business or referrals.

Since joining Ray White in 2010, I have been awarded the Elite Member Status and been in the top 1% of real estate agents for Ray White New Zealand:

Between 1 January – 31 December 2016 we marketed and sold 51 houses

Since 2010 we have sold over 300 houses

Let our results do the talking.


“Gary and his team are true professionals. This was our first time selling a house and had a real emotional attachment to it. From the first time we met Gary we felt at ease and he guided us through the process with ease. He was 100% working for us the seller to get the best result and we trusted his advice implicitly. His communication was excellent and he worked hard to get us a stand out result. So many others we know are disappointed with their agent experience selling their house but we only have positive things to say about the whole team.”

J Patterson

“We were very impressed with Gary and Arron’s professionalism, their understanding of the market and their choice of strategy for selling our home. Their communication was excellent and they involved us at every step. They both worked hard to achieve a very good result for us within 28 days. We have no hesitation in strongly recommending their services.”

D Legg & I Nye

“We had bought two properties through Gary in the past and had enjoyed dealing with him so much - we decided to sell through him. We had nothing but great service, great support from two great guys - what more could we ask for! We will definitely continue to be repeat clients."

I Davies & M O'Donohue

“As an absentee vendor living in Australia - from the day I met Gary and Arron, I had full confidence that they would do everything necessary on my behalf to achieve a successful result. I appreciated the constant telephone updates through every step of the process. Their professional, yet relaxed manner, gave me peace of mind that I had chosen the right agents. They did not disappoint me -in fact they went beyond my expectations.”

C Warden

Gary and Arron have been professional and attentive to all our needs throughout. Excellent communication, transparency and positive ’can-do’ attitude was a recurring theme from all our interaction with us!” They were trustworthy and reliable and we were truly impressed with their professionalism and service. It is not surprising that they are No.1 as they bear all the hallmarks of a reliable and trustworthy team—which is a rare find!”
