Peter Graham

Sales Manager, Ray White Johnsonville

A large part of my working life has been involved in sales and marketing. I did my selling apprenticeship in the home appliance retail sector where I was involved in sales and branch management.

Looking for fresh challenges, I became one of the founding staff members of Leaders Real Estate in 1987 where I have been ever since. My involvement with the company has been in real estate sales and management. During that time I have continued to develop my skill sets including completing university study to achieve AREINZ status in 2005. This is one of the highest qualifications in real estate, it requires an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of the real estate industry and entitles me to operate my own agency. I am a strong believer in the importance of ongoing education to ensure I am equipped to provide the best possible advice to my clients and achieve a top result when selling their home.

While I sell properties all over Wellington, I'm based in the northwest suburbs and know these suburbs thoroughly. I have lived in the area with my family for 25 years. My sons have grown up here, progressing from kindergarten to high school in the area. I have coached and managed their sports teams, served on sports club committees and been involved with other community organisations.

There is no greater advocate for the benefits of living in our part of town. With many hundreds of sales, I have experienced every type of market from boom to slump, several times over and I know how to optimise results for my clients in any market.

While my management role with Ray White occupies a significant amount of my time and energy, I still relish the opportunity to assist past and new clients with the sale of their home.

I believe I have the experience and the proven track record which can make the important difference to the success of your next property transaction.

It is the hardest job choosing an Agent to market the most valuable asset you have and you only have one chance to get it right. We looked at a lot of Agents and thedecision to use Peter was clear. What stood out for us was Peter's honesty andprofessionalism. Peter is a true "Sales Person" and worked with the buyers to deliver us a salesresult above our expectations.Peter put together a marketing campaign thatwas innovative andprovideda competitive environment to maximise our return. The reasons we woulduse Peter again are: Honesty - he told it like it was Communication –kept us informed all through the process Realistic –from the outset he was realistic in what he would deliver and then over achieved (where others were over promising to get the listing) Sales skills –ability to work with potential buyers selling the sizzle to get their best offer forward In summary, we have sold a few houses and at the end of the day you wonder who the Agent has been working for. In Peter's case we knew he had our best interest in heart and delivered a result we would have not achieved elsewhere. We have no hesitation recommending Peter Graham and we hope we get the opportunity to use him again one day. Kirsty & Jerrod Griffith 021-477-585

We have known Peter for over 23 years. When we first moved to Wellington, Peter negotiated the purchase of our home and became a personal friend. Over the years we kept in touch and when it came time to relocate away from Wellington, we asked Peter to market our property, with great success. Peter was instrumental in the sale of our house and provided exceptional service. He is totally professional, knowledgeable, driven, responsive, and communicative. During a challenging real estate period, Peter remained optimistic and encouraging, while working hard to follow through on his intentions. I really appreciate Peter’s dedication and we would highly recommend him to anyone. Philip and Maria Archer 027 65 90 888

We interviewed Peter Graham as a prospective realtor to sell our house after a strong recommendation from friends and were immediately impressed by his ability to impart information clearly and concisely. As we progressed through the selling process Peter demonstrated a very high standard of integrity and professionalism at every stage. He was always available to explain and discuss the different options and was able to minimise the stress involved in this complex process. We would recommend Peter without reservation or hesitation to anyone wishing to sell their property. Melanie & John Storey

We have known Peter for over 15 years through a range of real estate transactions and his involvement in local sports teams that both of our children have been involved in. We recently decided to sell our family home of 12 years. We decided to list with Peter for a range of reasons including his personal presence in the Khandallah area, his practical and sound real estate advice based on local experience, and we felt we could trust him with our family home. During the sales process Peter provided us with timely communication and practical advice. At all times during the sales process we were well informed and always felt in control of the selling process. Peter addressed all issues that arose during our selling process with a ‘solutions based’ approach and open communication. At all times we felt in safe hands. The end result that Peter achieved was great for us. The selling time was as short as possible, the price achieved was very good, and the stress on us as sellers was minimised. We have no hesitation or qualification recommending Peter if you want local knowledge, practical advice, good communication, and a person that you can trust. Please contact me if you want to discuss this reference. Regards Roland and Lisa Daysh 021-545-441

When we decided to sell our family home, we asked the three main local real estate companies for proposals. We had worked with Leaders for several of our past property dealings, and Peter had sold houses for other family members recently, so he was the Leaders agent we spoke to. From the three proposals we received, we chose Peter and Leaders as our agents. Peter explained his marketing recommendations in a manner which gave us confidence that he understood what results we wanted to achieve from the sale of our property. We were also impressed by Peter’s in depth knowledge of the real estate market in our area. He presented a strategy which made sense to us and was a process he had used many times to achieve very good results for other vendors. From the first day on the market there was a steady stream of potential buyers viewing our property and we were very pleased with the number attending the open homes. Peter kept the process as stress free as possible by giving us plenty of advance notice of appointments and following up all viewings with a phone call to us to report feedback. At the end of the short marketing programme we were very pleased to have offers to consider and delighted when we opened the winning tender which was above our expectations. Peter was always calm and professional to deal with. He gave us confidence that his advice was sound and would achieve our desired result. We would have no hesitation in using his services again and recommending him to others. Lynda Pryde and Duncan Joiner +64 21 479 752

Dear Peter We want to thank you for all your help selling our property in Ngaio. Getting the property ready for sale when we were living in Auckland provided many logistical problems particularly when some unforeseen problems with the property occurred. Your willingness to help manage these issues certainly went well beyond what we would normally expect from a real estate agent and made the whole process so much easier for us. The marketing of the property went extremely well with a huge numbers of buyers viewing it and we were delighted to receive six tenders on the closing date with an unconditional offer well in excess of our best expectations. We would definitely commend your services to anyone considering selling. Regards Louise & Geer Iseke

We had a very tight time frame in which we wanted to market and sell our house. From our initial meeting with Peter our first open home was the very next weekend and the house was sold three weeks later! Peter tailor made a marketing and sales strategy that ensured wereceivedthe best possible price for our home. He worked tirelessly on viewings and ensured our house got the most coverage in the marketplace. Once the house was sold we moved overseas, Peter continued to work hard on our behalf going above and beyond the call of duty. Selling a house is a stressful process, Peter made the entire process as simple and as easy aspossiblefor us. We wouldrecommendPeter to anyone, he certainly knows how to sell houses!

In October 2016 I decided to sell my house in Homebush Road, Khandallah. I contacted Peter Graham to discuss the options for the sale process, and based on his advice decided to sell the house by closed tender. Throughout the process Peter's open and honest communication kept me well informed. We openly discussed the pros and cons of various options at each decision point. I felt that Peter's advice and knowledge of the market in Khandallah and the surrounding suburbs was excellent and this helped achieve an above expectation result. I was very happy with the price obtained for my house and would unhesitatingly recommend Peter to anyone selling their property in the northern suburbs area. Brandon Clarke. 029 234 7737
