A PROUD HISTORY
Property is in my veins! Generations of my family have been involved in land development and property throughout Auckland - my Grandfather owned land on Great Barrier and a large farm in South Auckland, in 1984 he donated 9,500 acres of Great Barrier to the people of New Zealand. My father then took over the reins on our South Auckland farm until 2014. I spent time growing up on our farm and in the inner city suburb of Parnell. I was a born salesman, yet to fall into my calling of real estate, I started out selling oil paintings at a market, albeit a booming trade it wasn’t going to hold me for long.
I always had a passion for appreciating houses, the history, the way our houses are unique expressions of ourselves - this passion led me to venture into the real estate industry. I spent some time training and selling houses in Parnell and I was sold. Early in 2003 I took the opportunity to work at the Unlimited Potential Herne Bay office, through hard work, commitment and having the salesman X-factor - I forged a name selling upper-end property in Herne Bay and St Mary's Bay. Over my 5 years in this area I consistently succeeded within the office and gained considerable market share in these suburbs of focus.
In 2007, I felt the need for a change of scenery. Having spent many holidays on Waiheke Island I became aware of Waiheke's potential and scope in the top end of the market. I was able to apply my sales skills to a summer destination - at times doing deals in Jandals. I specialised in the higher end of Waiheke’s real estate from coastal properties to farms. Six years on, multiple national awards, key high value sales and a trusted reputation as someone with discretion and values integrity. My enthusiasm for working with people, both in terms of negotiation and dedication to meeting customer needs, cemented my place in the niche top end where I have built networks with many of the countries business elite and wealthiest families.
A WELCOME RETURN
In 2014 I returned to the city, after taking a break from the business and building my own successful investment portfolio, I decided in 2017 it was time to get back to what I love – beautiful homes and great people! Returning to Unlimited Potential has been easy, I have always loved the company values and the customer focussed approach Unlimited Potential has. A return to the areas I love is providing me with a renewed energy and excitement!
In my down time I spend it with my fiancé Davina and our children, I love fishing, yelling at refs via the tv, riding my Indian motorcycle and spending time in my hot house growing chillies.
“As part of a well organised and concerted marketing campaign, Daniel put together some excellent, visual advertising, both in terms of signage, flyers and media advertising (NZ Herald, Property Press and Property Extra).
Daniel’s attention to detail in this regard was meticulous, insisting on return visits in order to get the photography just right for the advertising material, including even the preparation of night-time shots of the property....”
“The level of service that Daniel provides sets him apart from some other real estate agents that we have had dealings with. Daniel at all times acted professionally and communicated with us throughout the process and always followed up any requests. Although at various stages negotiations became intense Daniel retained his composure and ensured that the parties kept moving forward in the negotiations. I consider these qualities are crucial for a real estate agent to be effective, to ensure no potential purchasers drift away or are alienated – as could have been possible with us, as we were still residing in Sydney at the time.
Overall, our experience in dealing with Daniel was that he made the process more enjoyable than we had envisaged would be, persevered with following us up, and carried out his role as vendor’s agent thoroughly and professionally.
We would deal with Daniel again without hesitation.”
“Daniel has great instincts, and formulated a short, well focused and economical marketing campaign that saw upwards of fifty parties through our house every weekend. Then his people skills swung into action – he spared no effort to engage every one of those parties, to find out what they were thinking, and to help them fall in love with our house. The number of text messages and emails I received late at night were testament to his extraordinary work ethic as he chased down every chance and half chance.
He gave us great advice throughout the process – starting with the preparation of the house, right through to auction strategy. In retrospect, every call seems to have been right.
Auction day confirmed this – the house could barely contain the number of interested parties! The auction itself was remarkable, with 5 or 6 sets of bidders. Needless to say, it ended with a sale at a great price.
Daniel is a genuine real estate enthusiast who is passionate about his job. I recommend him wholeheartedly.”
"Throughout our property campaign we were kept well informed of progress. Daniel was positive and professional to deal with and our property sold within the desired time frame. We can recommend to others."
