Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Leaders Upper Hutt
Tony’s initial introduction to Real Estate was in the capacity of a sales and marketing coach which ultimately led to an invitation from management to join their team as a licensed agent.
His focus on delivering significant results for clients opened the door to his next appointment which was with Remax New Zealand where he earnt several awards and quickly became the number one agent in the Upper Hutt office and in 2013 achieved number nine status for individual sales associates for New Zealand.
In February 2017 Tony’s company joined forces with the Ray White group fortifying an already successful team with the latest technology, systems, and networks of a powerful worldwide brand to deliver some of the very best Real Estate service in the industry.
Tony is an agent that is committed to continuous self-improvement in order to deliver greater levels of service, and to achieve premium prices for his clients. Tony passionately believes that in order to build a successful long term business, it is imperative to “Do unto others as you would like them to do to you”. Whether its clients, buyers, or other agents, Tony approaches his business with the same philosophy – People matter most.
I have worked with Tony for the last 3 years and have thoroughly enjoyed watching the phenomenal growth in his business. Not only has his business gone from strength to strength but so has his personal growth. Any true professional is always seeking a way to ‘be better’ and ‘do better’, and this sums up Tony. He is dedicated, extremely hardworking and totally committed to achieving the best result possible for each and every one of his clients. He will go the extra mile time and time again, and this is the difference between a Good Agent and a Great Agent! Tony is certainly a Great Agent. Tony is a true market specialist because he tracks his market – he knows what is happening, and how to convey that information to his clients in an honest, understandable and professional manner. Tony is a truly skilled Real Estate Professional that will obtain the best result for you and I highly recommend you call him if you are considering a Real Estate move.

The thing we liked about Tony was that out of all the agents that appraised our property he was the only one that showed the conﬁdence and attitude to go for the price range we were looking for and he delivered. Tony does things other agents don't even think about. We have a very long driveway that the buyers had to walk up, Tony put them in my car, took them up the driveway and then proceeded to drive them around the area showing recent sales, long story short, that buyer bought our home!

“When we decided to sell a rental property, we chose Tony as we had had dealings with him before and believed he was an agent that truly worked for his vendors. We discussed with Tony what price we needed, he took that on board and basically delivered. I would certainly recommend Tony to any prospective vendors, in fact I recommended him to a personal friend of mine, said to him "Tell Tony what you want and he will get it"- and he did.”
The main thing that stands out to me about Tony is that he was so energetic. Tony did everything for us from organising photos, builders, valuers, etc, nothing was too hard. He was always keen to show people through our home at any time of the day or night. We are the type of vendors that like to be in the know at all times as to what is happening with our house sale, it is a stressful time, and Tony was on the ball with keeping us informed at every step of the way, including giving us the good and the bad. Tony is also very innovative in his approach to Real Estate, Tony had contacts that he brought in to work within the limits of our advertising budget, including getting a great deal on marketing and drone photography in fact Tony did the first ever drone video in Upper Hutt. Tony has sold for us before, and we chose him again not just because of his results but because we really feel that Tony is dedicated and passionate about Real Estate 24/7 . We are very happy for any prospective vendors to call us personally.

We have sold two of our homes through Tony and would always use him again if we were selling our home. We first met Tony after we had bought a home through auction at a real bargain price. Even though Tony was not the selling agent, he came around to congratulate us on our buy. After we had fixed up a lot of the issues with the house we were keen to get Tony to sell the home for us but we were pressured to go with another agent. What a nightmare! Long story short after three months had expired we went back to Tony who sold our home for $50,000 more than an offer we had accepted (But eventually fell through) with the other agent. Needless to say, when we came to sell our next home we knew who we would be using. Tony excelled again, in a difficult market where other homes were being undersold or pulled off the market, Tony got us a price more than $100,000 more than we had paid for the home after expenses.

Tony was referred to us by a mutual friend who was thinking of doing a private sale but got a fantastic result from Tony. We were also thinking of private sale but are so glad we didn’t go down that track. Comparable homes were selling in the area for $200,000 to 240,000 and we believed ours was worth more so we were really hoping to get $300,000. Although the price we wanted was outside the box considering the area and our section, we really liked the fact that Tony was willing to listen to what we wanted, and was positive about getting a good result for us. Tony did have one offer at 230,000 but we were blown away when Tony told us he had an offer of $360,000. Tony was also very good in his communication, helping us to understand the steps in the house selling process as we had never sold a house before, and also keeping in touch every step of the way. We would definitely recommend Tony if you are looking at selling your home.

What I really loved about Tony was his honesty, he is someone that I totally trust. He was caring, realistic, and got us an amazing price for our house. Tony guided me throughout the whole listing and selling process and when I was nervous about some of the decisions I had to make, Tony was incredibly supportive and gave me the time to work through things, he was so patient with me and I really appreciated that. I would totally recommend Tony as a Real Estate agent.
Leonie Ruki - Poets Block, Trentham
We chose Tony because he was cheerful and happy, we knew he was a good agent but we also wanted someone that understood our situation which had been very stressful. Tony also believed that he could achieve the price that we wanted when the other agency didn’t. He always kept in touch and let us know what was going on. We were very happy with the price we got and he sold our house in a really quick time. Tony asked us if we wanted to hold out for more, but we were very happy to move on quickly to where we are now.
