Peter Vink

Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Tutukaka

Having owned a number of properties in and around the Tutukaka coast since 1985, Peter and Tina Vink are well known to many and have extensive knowledge and a very strong connection to the Northland region.

Peter and Tina’s many endeavours include the building and establishing in 1992 of the world renowned Schnappa Rock Restaurant and Bar on the Tutukaka Marina which hosted many successful events and functions enjoyed by many and included some outstanding international celebrities.

Peter was also the founding member of the Tutukaka Coast Promotions Inc, where he served as president for the first three years and still holds a seat on the executive to this day. The main focus of this group, and one of the driving forces behind its creation, was the idea of establishing the Tutukaka Coast as the Diving Capital of New Zealand. They organised the purchase and dismantling of two large ex-navy ships and saw them successfully scuttled on our coast to create artificial reefs for all to enjoy.

In September 2003 an offer Pete felt was too good to refuse was made on Schnappa Rock. This gave Pete and his family, which by this stage included two daughters, the opportunity to take 12 months off and take in some overseas travel and the remodelling of an older home in Glenbervie where they all still live.

2004 saw Peter make a successful move into coastal real estate when, in a very short space of time, he became the leading agent on the coast, marketing and selling consistently more properties than any other agent in the region. Now with a number of awards under his belt Peter continues to build his presence on the coast to the point that if there is ever anything you need to know about the Tutukaka Coast and its people, Pete’s the man to ask – he is certainly an excellent candidate to approach when considering buying or selling coastal properties.

Craig and I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Peter Vink from Ray White Tutukaka when purchasing our previous home through him over ten years ago. We found Peter professional, friendly open and honest. Nothing was a problem and all question were dealt with quickly and efficiently. So when it came time to move on and sell our property we had no hesitations in approaching Peter to market and sell this for us. He made himself available at all times through out this process and kept us informed every step of the way. We felt he went above and beyond his duty and we can't thank him enough. Shortly after listing our property with Peter at Ray White Tutukaka we found we were in a draw to win a 2016 Volkswagon Cross Polo from IC Motors in Whangarei. We were over the moon and excited when we received the call from him to say we were the Lucky draw winners. A Massive Thank you to Peter Vink, The Ray White Team and IC Motor Group. It was a Fabulous Surprise and we Love it!

Peter was recommended to me and having worked with him I can understand why. He was very helpful right from the beginning when he showed me the homes I wanted to see. I live in Auckland and he helped me negotiate all aspects of the purchase from there. He is straight forward and honest and has a strong depth of local knowledge which was invaluable to me.

Susan and Anthony

I can recommend with pleasure that you use the services of Peter Vink to buy or sell your Tutukaka Coast property. He has an excellent knowledge of nearly every house on the coast because of his many years of selling real estate on the Coast & also he has probably sold more houses than anyone else in this area. We purchased our house through Peter & because we were pleased with the way he handled the transaction we used him again to sell our Wellington Bay property. He also has the finely honed diplomatic skills needed to "smooth over" the inevitable issues that arise between a buyer & a seller. Lance Weller – 10 May 2015

Lance Weller

Our family had the privilege of working with Peter in mid 2014 while searching for a house from overseas prior to our return to NZ. Throughout the process Peter was patient, helpful, thoughtful and considerate of our situation. Having never spent time in Northland we relied on his local knowledge and deep understanding of the market and potential houses available. Peter happily made video tours of properties for us and helped us to source inspectors and builders to assess what we could only judge from a distance. In finding our eventual home for us Peter succeeded in fitting the family to the property perfectly, which is a testament to his ability to listen and understand our needs. His efforts extended beyond the sale and purchase as he was there when we arrived into Ngunguru and helped us to move in, even assembling our children’s beds! It was a pleasure working with Peter from day 1 and we would have no hesitation in using his services again or recommending him to anyone looking to sell or buy a property in the area.

Alistair Rumball-Smith

My husband and I purchased our land through Peter Vink in March 2014. We found Peter very approachable and easy to talk to. He worked with us closely over several months to not only find the right section but also helped us to negotiate a price that fit within our budget. We believe Peter's extensive knowledge of the area helped us find our dream section and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell on the Tutukaka coast.

Marcelle & Brendan

I found both Peter & Sherilyn very professional, friendly and very informative in the process of selling my house. I was more than happy with their services.

Ngaire Guy

I have found Peter Vink to be a most professional and competent real estate agent, and a pleasure to deal with. I would have no reservation in recommending him to others.

Mark Bell

Peter, when dad passed away so suddenly and unexpectedly the handling of the property seemed like an almost impossible task. Considering the state it was in we were so worried that the sale of it would be handled in a blaze' way as to most it must appear to be a run down house belonging to someone who has now passed away and so why really put too much effort into it. But behind that house are 6 daughters who will have the chance to do something special with the small inheritance this house will provide and as we have never really had much, it will be almost life changing. For myself it will allow me to finish my degree, for my sisters, it will provide freedom to pursue their own goals. Because of this we are so, so grateful that from the very outset you have been so clearly motivated to do the best you can with the property, you have been sending Carolyn regular updates which has made us feel like we are always in the loop and you have been such a brilliant professional and we are all actually really overwhelmed by your service to us and will be always grateful for how you made what initially felt like an impossible task, seem so easy. If there is ANY forum I can go to to publicly express our gratitude, write a review, anything at all please forward me details. You are a very kind and decent man.

Vanessa, Nelly, Teraza, Aliyah, Zoe and Jodi

A big thank you to all the team for your helpfulness, sound advice and courtesy in selling and buying properties. You are all a very special team ... We would have no hesitation in recommending your team to anyone that requires the best.

Marge and Michael Douglass

We wish to let you know how happy we have been with Peter's recent handling of our house sale at 4 Manawa Drive, Ngunguru. He kept us informed on progress, put in the hours with open homes every weekend, and looked into ways in which to market the house that was fresh and different for the area. We would be pleased to list any future properties with Peter again.

J and P Howarth

We wanted to thank you so much for all your time last month, in helping us to find suitable land to buy in and around Tutukaka. You were very helpful and we were very grateful. We have bought some land in Parua Bay, an 11 acre mature bush site, with a building site. We have sea views and lots of birds so are very excited. Now we are trying to design our perfect house! That is proving a challenge but very interesting. We hope business continues well for you. Perhaps we will catch up with you in the future when we settle into the area. Thank you once again. PS: We were very impressed with the build of the Meier's house. We may call you to check on the details. 26 April 2007

I write to express my appreciation for the work done by your Tutukaka Coast Team (Chris Windust and Peter Vink) in the sale of my property at Lot 22 Lawson Drive, Tutukaka. Chris and Peter excelled themselves in their energetic marketing of the property, and this was rewarded when they completed the sale of the property for me in March of this year. The property had been listed with numerous other agents but it was Chris and Peter who showed the way in every aspect of promoting and marketing the property. I particularly appreciated their helpful advice on methods of marketing the property, signage and also matters of pricing. It was no surprise therefore that they, amongst the various agents with whom the property was listed, were the ones successful in making a sale. I would be grateful if you could convey these sentiments to Chris and Peter. 28 April 2007

P A Dallas

Excellent service, positive attitude and good regular feed back.

Matt & Shonagh

He is a pleasure to deal with. Calm and took everything in his stride. He continued to market the property over the 2 years it took to sell giving good relevant and helpful feedback.

Lloyd & Mary

Expert advice, very efficient, very helpful, gentle manners

Anika

From when the agreement went unconditional to date of settlement exceeding 6 months Peter was calm and patient with the prospect buyer against a background of a flat coastal market. What matter to me was the deepness of our relationship and help which Peter gave me.

John

Mainly be cause of his experience and knowledge of the market. He also has the right personality for the job

Judith & Rosemary

Peter just knew the whole process so well. It was very good. Most of all he provided the energy. Every step was forward. Final result . . . everyone happy.

Elizabeth

Peter Vink is so easy to deal with, no pushiness, answers all your questions and if he doesn't know he goes that extra mile to find out for you, a great guy to deal with.
