Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Parnell
In a nutshell, Roy Champtaloup is totally passionate about getting his vendors the best possible price available whilst delivering outstanding service.
This is probably why he has consistently been ranked in the top 5% of Auckland real estate salespeople the last 12 years.
It’s just in his DNA to be incredibly enthusiastic, effective and ethical as he overturns every stone on the path to getting his vendors a fantastic selling price. His extraordinary level of client care and commitment is evidenced by what his clients say about him.
Roy was born and bred in Victoria Avenue and attended local schools St Kentigern’s and Auckland Grammar. It’s unlikely there’s a Remuera real estate salesperson who has a better, more intimate knowledge of its properties - and the neighbouring suburbs.
Roy’s background in marketing & client service (BCom from Canterbury University and 20 years working for New Zealand’s leading advertising agencies), along with his love for property, affinity with people, and exceptional negotiation skills, continue to be a fantastic recipe for outstanding service & results for his clients.
An active member of the eastern suburbs community, Roy is on the Orakei Basin Protection Society Committee, was a key member of the successful STEM (Stop the Eastern Motorway) organisation, and as a recognised local community influencer, has been invited to steering committees involving urban development, by previous Auckland mayors.
For the last 19 years, Roy has lived on the edge of the Orakei Basin, as did his father and grandfather, and when not selling houses loves to ski, golf, fish, travel, ride his motorcycle, and – most importantly – spend time with his wife Fiona, and their children Emma & Harry.
Roy has sponsored 2 World Vision children over the last 18 years and continues to do so.
He feels passionately about the current global, geopolitical and financial environment, (don’t start him) and as such, has just completed his Red Cross Volunteer Refugee Resettlement training and is currently assisting his first ‘client’ to settle into their new community.
Roy successfully combines his vast experience & knowledge in the real estate market, with a professional, committed and personable approach – to ensure he achieves the best possible outcome for his clients. Roy helped us through a very complex negotiation, and successfully achieved an unconditional sale on our property. Throughout the process Roy remained outcome focussed; his communications were thorough, positive and reassuring for both us and the purchasers; and he explored every possible scenario to ensure a successful sale was achieved. We believe that without Roy’s experience, people skills and individual determination that a successful sale may not have happened. We are delighted with the end result Roy was able to achieve for us. We strongly recommend him if you want a totally committed, highly experienced & effective agent that will achieve the best possible result for you!

Roy is a rare find in the real estate world: Down to earth, honest and transparent. In what was a complex purchasing situation Roy remained attentive, transparent and helpful. He made the whole process a lot less stressful than it otherwise could have been. Roy struck the delicate balance perfectly of working for both the vendor and the purchaser; keeping the channels of communication open and we’re delighted that his skill & experience helped us secure the property

A quick note to express our huge thanks for the exceptionally professional & effective manner in which you handled the sale of our property at 9 Puroto St. And of course to reiterate that we’re delighted with the great selling price! We had no doubt that you were the man to handle our sale, particularly given that it was such a big deal for us after 28 years of ownership. Your communication and attention to detail were beyond reproach. You handled our tenants with charm and did a great job of getting their agreement to provide access & maintain the property in a tidy & very presentable state. Thanks! We have no doubt that your energy and determination to uncover every stone and ensure many well qualified buyers turned up, was the key to the very competitive bidding and a fantastic result. Thanks also to Wayne who did an outstanding job as Auctioneer. Naturally we will be singing your praises to anyone we know who is considering selling their home.
Barney & Sarah Bainbridge - 9 Puroto Street, Meadowbank
Hi Roy, Thank you for you efforts on the sale of Crown Lane. A sale was achieved at auction, which was what was wanted and at a price which was well within our range so everything wanted was achieved. The open home programme, the advertising and support from you and your office were delivered as promised by you and left me with no doubt that you were the right agent to handle this sale. Feedback from you on interested viewers, suggestions as to presentation of the property, flexibility in terms of dealing with us and availability at any time to discuss sale progress were all excellent and made me very comfortable with what, for the sale of my family home, was a very important event. You were able to cope with our concerns, calm everything down and keep us all focused on the auction and open home process. You made communication easy – thank you.
He was very efficient, helpful and pleasant to deal with.
Laura & James
Roy was excellent. Great communication and very professional
We would like you to know just how much we appreciate your very real and friendly help and advice towards us, during the lead up to, and during the sale of, our 35 year old home in Lucerne Road. Not an easy decision for us, in our ‘getting on years’, but in an unbelievable two to three weeks, all was signed and sealed with little or no pain, and we sincerely thank you and your team for the successful – the very successful – result. Thank you Roy.
Vendor - 94 Lucerne Road, Remuera
A few months ago we received a flyer in the mail from an agent saying they had sold a property down the road from us at 49% above CV. We decided to put our property on the market and entrusted Roy with doing his best for us. The result that Roy and your team at Ray White achieved far exceeded our expectations. The result of getting 74% above our CV is a testament to the skill levels Roy and your team brought to getting the best price possible through matching the right purchaser to the vendor. We can't thank you enough for making what can be a stressful experience so easy and rewarding.
Johnny & Lisa - 236 Kepa Road, Mission Bay
A sincere thank you for all you did to sell our property. Many of us think it is an easy process, especially in the current environment. It is clearly not always the case and you did a great job in navigating, managing the potential purchasers and producing a great sale and a fair price.

"We were delighted in the way Roy quickly achieved our goals and the professional way he went about it. Thank you Roy!"
The Vendor - 36 Aldred Road, Remuera
We would like to thank Roy for a great outcome to the sale of our property. Roy proactively called us seeking the opportunity to be part of the sale process - he was able to convince us he could work with both seller and buyer and achieve the best results for us. This coupled with knowing the house and Remuera property market well, all added to a very satisfactory conclusion. We wish Roy well and certainly recommend his services.
Vendor - 46 Benson Road, Remuera
Just a quick note to pass on our much appreciated thanks for the way things went recently regarding our sale of Haast Street and purchase of Benson Road. Roy was very good at working with us when negotiating a price and terms on Benson Road, he was super quick to respond to our demands – he never went missing in action throughout the process in what at times was a difficult negotiation. Ricky and Roy combined forces to sell our house at 21 Haast Street and we had over 80 groups through over two weekends of open homes. Their communication was exceptional with clear and concise reporting. The auction day resulted in fierce bidding with close to ten groups bidding $1,460,000 – this was a fantastic result from a CV of $945,000. We are very happy with the purchase and sale experience with Ray White and in particular the experience with Ricky and Roy and would have no hesitation in recommending them.
Paul Donaghy - 21 Haast Street, Remuera
Our brief to Roy was simple – sell our house quickly for the best possible price. His knowledge of the Remuera market, priceless marketing campaign advice, and tenacious but friendly manner when dealing with potential purchasers meant that he delivered – job done! We found him to be approachable, trustworthy, hard working and diligent. He, and the excellent office team backing him up, kept us 'in the loop' at all times. Would I ask Roy to sell my house? Unreservedly yes.
David & Family - 10 Dell Avenue, Remuera
My home has recently sold using Roy Champtaloup as my agent. Having had solicitations from various companies and individuals, I eventually decided to use Roy and he backed up my judgment. Every task was performed with enthusiasm, punctuality, following up every prospective purchaser and doing what he said he would do. His service was beyond reproach and I would not hesitate to recommend him.
Vendor - 10 Manawa Road, Remuera
thanks for the efficient and effective manner in which you handled the sale of our house. It has been a pleasure to deal with you, and we are grateful for your expertise in procuring the sale. We wouldn't hesitate to use you again to sell our property.
Vendor - 27B Upland Road, Remuera
We have been personal friends of Roy's for over 30 years and it was for this reason that we were reluctant to engage him as our real estate agent...as they say, "Never do business with friends!" Happily, our recent experience of selling our home in Victoria Avenue has proved the naysayers wrong. Roy was determined and positive throughout what proved to be a very challenging marketing experience. The value of a realtor is whether they can sell a property in difficult economic times....it's easy to look accomplished when the market is buoyant. While other properties have had little or no interest in our price range, Roy was able to attract a large number of interested parties, keep that interest alive and present multiple offers on the table. We salute his grit and determination! I have no hesitation in recommending him to sell your home.
Scott and Louise Wallace - 124 Victoria Ave, Remuera
Roy managed the impossible with charm and persistence when he helped us sell our home and buy our dream home all within one week. Our conversations moved quickly from "on the impossible chance we manage to make this happen" to " all unconditional!" Thanks for all your positive energy and turning what seemed like madness into a fantastic reality.
Kim and Vlad Kozak - 23 Eastbourne Road, Remuera
We have sold two properties in the last eighteen months and on both occasions Roy has delivered fantastic results in an extremely competitive environment. Not only did he surpass our sales expectations, he delivered results in an incredibly short time frame. We found Roy to be extremely focused on getting the right results for us and was excellent at communicating regularly with us during those stressful times as sellers. Would we use Roy again? – without a doubt! If you want the best results as a seller, then Roy should be the person you call.
Jay McClennan - 310 Victoria Avenue, Remuera
Roy and his team were very professional and kept us informed throughout the process
Ivan & Kris
It`s no wonder that Roy is one of Ray White`s most successful residential real estate agents. He has just sold our property at 44 Benson Road by auction, and both his marketing proposal and presentation of the property to potential buyers was outstanding. On the day of the auction we had multiple bidders keen to own the property which consequently resulted in a sale that left vendors, purchasers and agents all very happy, which was the ideal end result. Roy also sold our last family home 10 years ago.\ \ We would have no hesitation in recommending Roy, at all times he was professional and assuring, and very happy to work in with what best suited us as a family, and a pleasure to work with.
Anna & Paul
Roys attention to detail was impeccable, his communication was excellent and timely. I liked his optimism and general manner. Roy made this seemingly stressful experiance stressless.
He approached us, and given the parameters we gave him, he delivered all that we asked.
