Manager - Property Management, Ray White Ferrymead
I joined the Ray White Prier Manson team in 2005, having moved from another Property Management firm into this role.
I have since achieved Ray White Canterbury No 1 Property Manager Individual for 2006, the Prier Manson Cup for Outstanding Achievement in 2008, Ray White Canterbury No 2 Property Manager Individual 2009, Ray White Canterbury Property Management No.1 Growth 2009, Ray White Canterbury Property Manager Individual 2010, Ray White National Award Property Manager Individual 2011.
Prior to my positions in property management I worked as a Senior Constable in the New Zealand Police for 17 years. This role provided me with a vast range of personal and customer service skills, which have proven invaluable in handling all facets of managing a large and complex, quality rent role.
I look forward to speaking with you soon and working together to realise your property's investment potential.
I have dealt with Ray Hastie, and the team at Citywide Property Management, for many years now and have found them to be an excellent company to deal with. I have faith in their ability to source an excellent standard of tenant for my investment properties and communicate well through this process.
Ray Hastie has sourced tenants for our Redcliff's rental property for two years now. We have found Ray to be excellent at procuring quality tenants that have been a good fit for us as both landlords and close neighbours. Ray has kept us informed of market developments with a focus initially on shorter term local earthquake refugees and now a longer term tenant. We have appreciated Ray's approachable manner, honesty and judgement in all dealings. We have no hesitation in recommending Ray's service.

I just wanted to thank you for being such a good property manager of our property over the last 3 years. I have really appreciated your advice and prompt action in dealing with all the issues that occur with an old house, and sometimes difficult tenants.
I employed Ray Hastie and his team because the tenant in my mothers furnished apartment had stopped paying rent. This was causing me a lot of stress and sleepless nights as the rent was helping with my mother's rest home care and the tenant had turned out to be a conman. Ray took the tenant to the Tenancy Tribunal and had the tenant removed within days. He then had the locks changed as a precaution. As Property Manager, Ray has since installed a reputable couple in the apartment. He has supported me through false claims brought by the previous tenant to the Justice Department who dismissed the case. Ray is now in the process of disposing the previous tenants belongings stored in the apartments basement carpark. I have found Ray to be professional, attentive to detail and trustworthy. He takes care of my mother's apartment, including cleaning and minor repairs, sends me monthly statements of the rent etc. Ray and his team have lifted a great burden off my shoulders.
I have been a client of Ray Hastie at Ray White Citywide Property Management for over one year now. He managed a property in Woolston, Christchurch that my sister and I owned. Since becoming a client I have not had any concerns arise as my rent has been paid on time, my inspections have always been done professionally and I have not had a tenancy change. I was so impressed with the level of services provided by Ray and his team. Being an overseas resident they made it easy. Good communication and prompt on time reporting and payment to us of our account. The only reason we have finished our association with Ray is the property has been sold. Ray and his team were more than helpful opening up for inspections and with the excellent final clean prior to the purchaser moving in. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a property manager to contact Ray Hastie at Ray White Citywide Property Management.
We had Ray Hastie as our Property Manager for several years and we were very satisfied with his services. Ray was always extremely pleasant, he gave us very sound advice and was very thorough in his inspections. We found Ray very easy to communicate with while we were in England. We would be very happy to use his services again

Ray is very diligent, enthusiastic, professional and outstanding with customer service, and his honesty, integrity and reliability is beyond fault. He has always kept us well informed regarding our property and the tenants. It is without hesitation that we would recommend the services of Ray Hastie and the Ray White Property Management Sumner team.

A BIG thank you for managing our Sumner home. The last few years have been tough for us, but was at least made a little easier by you and everyone else at Ray White.
