Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Newmarket
Moving home can be a stressful and exhausting affair. Packing and tidying and making changes that are often the pre-cursor to an improvement in circumstances, are nevertheless eventful and demanding. Few agents in real estate understand new beginnings better than Ivan Koulin. 25 years ago Ivan packed his bags and left his home country of Bulgaria permanently to make New Zealand his new home. Leaving behind a country in turmoil, he sought a new more peaceful and safe existence on the other side of the world.
Multilingual and with a substantial background in tourism, Ivan initially worked in the hospitality sector. Five years later he was drawn to real estate because it offered him the opportunity of a job combining his two great loves - people and property. He began a personal love affair with property investment that continues to this day.
For 21 years Ivan has worked for Ray White – initially in Epsom. His focus has primarily been in the central suburbs, serving his clients in Epsom, Remuera , Royal Oak, Onehunga, One Tree Hill, Greenlane,Hillsborough, Mt Roskill, Newmarket, Parnell and Mt Eden. Over those years Ivan has amassed a large following of loyal clients and many industry awards.
Ivan is “no-fuss” with a calm manner and a lot of empathy for his clients and their needs. He is an amazingly astute agent. Very experienced, he has a meticulous approach when it comes to marketing and negotiating the sale of a home. He is fearless, hard-working and extremely compassionate.
For an agent who can assist you with new beginnings in real estate, Ivan is the ideal man for the task.
I have known Ivan for 20 years and trust him he is hard working and trust worthy

I found Ivan to be a gentle respectful agent. He gave full frank information and was clear about his role in the sales process. He continued to follow up and keep me informed through out the process.

I recently sold my unit in Royal Oak & purchased a house in Onehunga. Ivan Koulin was the real estate agent who sold my unit and I also purchased my new property through him. I first explored selling my unit over two years ago and Ivan was one of a number of agents I met with at the time. For a number of reasons, I decided not to sell at that time. Throughout the subsequent months, Ivan kept in touch to see if I was ready to sell. He did this in a professional low-key way. When I was preparing to sell last year, I contacted Ivan as well as other agents. Again, Ivan stood out as the agent I wanted to deal with. Throughout the time I have known Ivan; I have found him to be extremely professional, helpful and willing to assist in whatever way he can. Without hesitation I would recommend Ivan to others considering selling.
With great satisfaction we wish to express our appreciation of the advice and help that we have experienced from Ivan Koulin with the sale of our house. This was the third time that we worked with Ivan to sell or purchase a property. Again we found him very professional and experienced in preparing and conducting the progress of promoting and advertising. Also in choosing different ways of exposing our property on the market. Ivan ( and your office ) kept us well informed about the parties that visited our home and he was able to emphasize the important aspects and reactions from interested buyers. So we could form a better feeling of the market value of our house. Our house did not sell at the planned auction. And it happened that we also had reactions from other Real Estate Agents with advises how to handle a sale that needed more time to be successful. But Ivan showed again a higher standard of professionalism and sales ethics. We knew that he had the right approach, clearly chosen by his years of experience in the Real Estate and communicating with people of different cultures. We noticed that Ivan put in great effort, even up to the last minute, to approach people again whom showed interest before, making sure that no opportunity was lost to find the right and satisfied buyer. You may understand that we have great confidence in Ivan' s qualities how to advice and help in selling and buying a property. We definitely will recommend anyone who likes to buy or sell a property to contact Ivan

Thank you Ivan for the hard work and commitment in selling our house at 23 Jordan avenue, Onehunga. As you know we had 2 previous attempts to sell with the Auckland's leading real estate agency, with no success and not even a real offer. Listing with you brought 3 offers in few weeks time, which only shows your skills, determination and professionalism. There is another aspect of the whole sale process for which I am particularly thankful and impressed - during these weeks of preparation for the sale and marketing, we were overseas, and you took charge in making sure the property is ready for sale; you were meeting with tradesmen (builders, painters, landscapers, cleaners) often using your own contacts to get the job done. I am sure this service does not come from many Auckland real estate agents! Much appreciated .

I wanted to thank you very much for the work that you did on the sale of my property. I really appreciate your efforts to close the deal and go the extra distance to make sure that all went smoothly.

Our daughter Allison Wong Toi, who resides overseas, recently sold her Sandringham unit through your sales person Ivan Koulin. Over the years we have engaged Ivan on numerous occasions to sell properties on our behalf and he has always been our preferred choice when it comes to selling. We would like again to express our appreciation of Ivan's work through the whole process- from listing to settlement and beyond. As usual he was utterly professional and dedicated and went the extra mile to help with all manner of minor issues that arose, to facilitate a smooth transaction. We take this opportunity to thank Ivan on Allison's and our behalf for everything that he did. We would also like to recommend him to anyone contemplating selling - they will not be disappointed!
John and Nancy Wong Toi
We would like to commend Ivan, because he is very professional, very approachable and well educated person. Always on to the client request. He is very honest, something which most of the real estate don't have .Has been a pleasure to work with Ivan. And you have to be proud that you have an employee like him
