Let me take the stress away and guide you through the process step by step. We will establish a partnership to give you the confidence which enables you to make the informed decisions needed in the real estate process.

* I have over 15 years experience in the industry.

* I am honest, calm under pressure and always very aware of the importance of LISTENING to the client’s needs. I want to make sure the choices are right for you. I am not afraid however, to give you the honest truth if it is necessary.

* I am adaptable and able to work with your individual needs.

* I enjoy a large amount of repeat clients, who I have worked with in both the buying and selling process, with great success.

Here are some of the comments kindly offered by some of my clients which highlight customer satisfaction.

I value William’s work, not simply because he carried out his work professionally and speedily, but I felt impressed by his manner when presented with a formidable yet delicate challenge. His persistence, determination and effort both individually and in a team represents to me a model of professional service.

I had every confidence that Will, would succeed in selling my apartment. He impressed me throughout as a personable, enthusiastic real estate professional. I would certainly be happy to list with him again and would have no hesitation in recommending him to others selling their home.

We found William to be very professional, pleasant to deal with, hard working and focussed on achieving the best outcome with the sale of our property.
His time and effort in satisfying buyer enquiry whilst keeping us fully appraised was most appreciated, and we have no hesitation in recommending William as a diligent and professional agent.

I am writing to thank William for all of his hard work with selling our Karori home. We had a price in mind that was on the high side. But William was committed to helping us move and was determined to achieve our price. It was the second home he has sold for us and will hopefully not be the last. 

Thank you Will for your hard work. You were there to help when we really needed it. I would recommend you to everyone when selling an investment property. You listened to our needs, and delivered what you promised. 

We were delighted with the service William provided throughout the sales process. William gave us excellent advice and assistance with marketing the property which really showed in the high exposure we received, and the sale result.
William worked hard to follow up and give individual attention to each and every prospective purchaser, no mean feat with over 100 people through our property! He is approachable and communicates well, clearly explaining each part the sales process to us and the buyers. He tells it like it is and this put our minds at ease in what could have been a stressful event.

Sale of 11 Rawhiti Terace, Kelburn, Wellington
We selected William Calder to be the agent for the sale of our house in Wellington, because he stated from the very first that his strategy was to devote his care and attention to only a small range of carefully marketed properties and this is exactly what he did. His dedication to detail, to keeping us informed of viewer’s opinion, his understanding and advice in relation to sales strategy and structure and his willingness to help in a myriad of small and large ways was all exceptional. We were resident overseas for the entire sale and he coped admirably with the increased complexities this imposed upon us. He achieved the sale we wanted in the time frame we needed and this seems the best testament of all. William clearly has a deep experience and understanding of the Wellington housing market and we would without hesitation recommend him to anyone wishing to sell.

Will went above and beyond, in the sale of this house. I couldn't recommend more trust worthy and reliable agent, Will also excelled in negotiating. I would use him again without a second thought. 10 out of 10 Service

Janine Hearn - Newlands

Working with Will was great. As a first time home seller we weren't just interested in the current market conditions, but also learning about the sale process and pros and cons of different approaches. Will was upfront and honest and established a trust relationship right from the start. I always felt that Will was working in our best interests and we were very happy with both the process followed and the outcome. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Will and utilise his services again.

I would like to express my gratitude to Will for the exemplary work he did selling my brother’s house on behalf of his estate. From the very start Will took great pains to ensure that all of us were well informed about the process and what we could reasonably expect to realise from the sale. His recommendations for presentation of the property were spot on, only the essential items, the ones that really made a difference. Obtaining a good price for the property was important and we were happy with the result. More importantly was Will’s willingness to do that extra work that made the sale process so easy. With the majority of us living in the South Island and myself living on the other side of the city, Will took it upon himself to be there to let tradesmen in and out and organise work to be done without any prompting or complaint. He kept us informed on what was happening and how things were progressing at all times. We felt confident in leaving our property in his hands. The result made for a relaxed and easy sale right through to settlement. I have no hesitation in recommending Will Calder as a Real Estate Salesperson with integrity and honesty. Willing to go that extra mile to ensure that the vendor is satisfied and happy with the results he achieves. 10/10 for Service. Alan Read 027 656 7684

Thank you Will for handling the sale of our property in Karori. We believe your dedication and professionalism was the key driver in the number of offers we received on tender day along with the exceptional offer we accepted. We also appreciated your knowledge in providing us with pre-sale advice including the most appropriate method of sale for our property. We have since recommended you to many others and will contact you first when we next purchase or sell another property. Overall, here's how we would sum up our experience of selling with you: easy, professional, relaxed and you delivered everything you said you would in super fast time. Many thanks again, Faith & Sean' 20 Versailles Street

Will was amazing, he kept us informed throughout the whole process of selling our house and was completely professional. He was also very flexible with open home times and visits as we had a young baby at the time. Highly recommend him! Hannah and Peter 02102527713

My husband and I had a very positive experience working with Will selling our home. We found him warm, informative and very accommodating, scheduling visits around our young family. He gave us a large amount of his time and provided us with useful information that we could consider without feeling pressured. He kept us well informed throughout the process and subsequent sale of our house, and also assisted us in our search for a new home in the wider Wellington region. I can highly recommend Will, and would not hesitate to contact him again in the future for any real estate needs Nicola 0221880081

We’ve known Will for some time now, in all our real estate dealings with him he has exceeded our expectations every time. Will has sold both personal homes for us and also rental properties for our business. In both the boom and down times in the Wellington market he has achieved great price results in amazing time frames (6 days for one sale). His friendly but professional approach we find really easy to deal with and he has gone the extra distance (late after-hours visits) on many occasions to close sales for us. Will also listened to our requirements, searched, found and sold us our current house that we live in and enjoy with our family. We’d certainly recommend him for both buying and selling or any of your other property needs. Dave & Hayley Sutich 0212802759 Wellington

We had a wonderful experience with Will as our Real Estate Agent, both as buyers and vendors. He helped us immensely with the purchase of our new home - he gave us several extremely helpful pieces of advice, without which we would definitely not have won what was a competitive tender. When selling our home we found him fantastic to deal with. He was utterly professional and very efficient. He kept us constantly informed and was very responsive to any messages. Will was also extremely accommodating, which was important to us with two young children. We followed Will's advice with regards to the marketing and presentation of our home - as a result we had a large number of offers and secured a price we were very happy with. We definitely felt the benefit of his many years of experience selling homes in Karori. Lucinda Lendrum 0273099959

I first experienced the exemplary service Will gives as a Real Estate Agent more than 10 years ago when he helped me and my partner purchase our first home. Since then he has become an integral part of my home ownership experiences having helped with the sales of our past two homes. I can highly recommend Will whether you are look to sell or purchase. He works hard to not only provide the best outcome and advise for you but also to understand what you and your family are looking for from the experience. I found his long experience in the Wellington housing market invaluable and his kind and empathetic manner reassuring whist working through the buying and selling process. I'm sure if you choose Will to work with he will exceed you expectation and I am wrapped to have experienced his high level of customer service. Jade Reeves 0212425270
