Philip Hunt

Commercial - Industrial Specialist / Director, Ray White Commercial Tauranga

Philip moved to Tauranga more than 25 years ago from home town Palmerston North where he owned and operated garden centres for 17 years. He was well known as the inaugural Tauranga "Main Street" manager for 6 years.

Philip then spent 6 years at Property Managers Limited as their Senior Commercial and Industrial Property Manager before moving to its sister company McMahon Commercial (now Ray White Commercial Tauranga).

Philip had a successful five years as a leasing and sales agent for McMahon Commercial in a very trying Tauranga market between 2008 and 2013 (before McMahon Commercial became Ray White Commercial).

In December 2016 Philip became a major owner of Ray White Commercial Tauranga. So dealing with Philip means you are dealing with the business owner.

His passion for property remains and his major interest is with Tauranga C.B.D. plus developments, land and building sales in the thriving Tauriko Industrial Estate.

Then as the market climbs, so does his team. Now as team leader of ten, Philip has led the Tauranga Team to a whole new level. A timely acknowledgement of this came in the form of several top awards at the Ray White Commercial International Conference in Australia in August. Philip attended the Gold Coast event and came away with Top Branch for Customer Service (Ray White Tauranga), Top Commercial Agent for Customer Service (Philip Hunt) and No. 6 Commercial Agent Internationally.

Philip has been awarded the Ray White Commercial Top Agent in New Zealand for the last two years.

Philip is also a Ray White Elite Performer for the last 3 years including 2017

Recently at the Ray White National Conference Philip was awarded the Commercial Salesperson of the year for 2017.

It's a very busy time for commercial property and we are only small players therefore we probably were impacted by this : communication 7/10working for the vendor 6.
