Lets do coffee

Keri Yildiz

Zaf and Keri have wasted no time in building a successful track record here at UP. After 12 years establishing Cafe Jazz on the corner of Upland and Remuera Roads, Zaf and his wife Keri made a lifestyle and career change. They bring with them a wealth of life experiences, boundless energy and infectious optimism.

Born in Turkey to Turkish/Greek parents, Zaf was schooled through to University in Ankara. He has enjoyed a career as a professional volleyball player and model, been a Corporal in the Turkish Airforce and then moved to New Zealand where he settled and made his mark in the hospitality industry.

Keri has been the administrative support behind Café Jazz over their years of ownership. Her background was in the Travel Industry and Insurance, where she became New Zealand’s youngest female broker before travelling overseas. She met Zaf while modelling in Turkey. She is also an accomplished artist who has a great eye for colour and design.

Keri and Zaf have two beautiful daughters who attend Otago University and Baradene College, they have been married for 22 years.

As a combination Zaf and Keri not only understand the real estate process but they also care very deeply about the people involved. They have built a platform that provides transparency and confidence ensuring their clients are kept well informed every step of the way. Together they bring a genuine desire to get the best result through an honest hard working approach and great negotiating skills. Commercially savvy they understand and adapt to changing market conditions. They are a breath of fresh air in the industry, and key players in our team.

Client Testimonials

  • We would like to say a big thank you to you both for making things so easy for us and taking some of the stress of selling our house from us.
    Zaf and Keri, you make a fantastic team and have gone far beyond the extra mile in making us feel secure in our choice of both realestate companies as well as agents.

    I have no hesitation to recommend Zaf and Keri as the best agents I have ever had the pleasure to deal with.

    Their professionalism, honesty and integrity have enabled me to put my complete trust in them to get on with the job of selling my house, which they did an outstanding job of. We are delighted with the results of the sale and would not hesitate to use them for any other future endeavours we may take on.

    Thank you.
