Bryce’s passion rewarded him with NZ representative status in the sport of Olympic distance triathlon where he was involved in two World Championships and the Commonwealth Games as part of the NZ Elite Team. Clearly blessed with more energy than most, Bryce has enjoyed many successes through his life, one of these being an enviable property track record including ten years with the commercial property company Colliers International and twelve years with UP including it’s exciting growth period 1998 – 2005. During this time UP took a dominant position in the Remuera/Parnell markets and went on to establish offices in Mt Eden and Herne Bay.
Bryce puts importance on balancing work and family time. His integrity and values are equally important in all aspects of his life and is something he will not compromise on.
Bryce easily makes connections with people that are enduring. He is first and foremost, however, the consummate real estate professional, one of few who have succeeded in sales across both commercial and residential real estate. A true team player he is bringing significant added value to every opportunity.

We first met Bryce when he door knocked us while canvassing the area. We had just been on the market to sell, however had not had a good auction experience and were interested to chat about real estate with him. We liked the fresh up front no nonsense way about him and said stay in touch.
Two years later we decided to sell, and immediately thought of Bryce. Due to our previous experience we did not want the typical overt, big cost, real estate type campaign.
Bryce and UP listened to our needs and put together a simple and inexpensive marketing campaign that was comprehensive and presented our home exceptionally well.
Bryce was very thorough, diligent, and professional and we felt confident that he was definitely working for us to produce the best result possible. Bryce assessed the market thoroughly prior to producing 3 simultaneous offers creating a competitive multi-offer situation that gave us comfort that the end figure was a good result.
We would like to thank Bryce for all his hard work, and would certainly recommend him to any one thinking of marketing their home.
Bryce Holmes approached me during the boiling hot Auckland property market of 2016, as he was aware that I'd been wondering about selling for some time but didn't want to go through the disruptive process of advertising and open homes. Bryce demonstrated a straightforward, clear and honest handling of the resulting sale process, and I was pleased with his communication and the final result. This included substantial timing flexibility on the part of the purchaser and myself. I recommend Bryce as a real estate agent, as he listens to vendor requests, avoiding the hard sell nonsense and high pressure so often seen with others. Measured and vendor-service-orientated rather than self-serving puffery.

To Whom it May Concern,
It is with genuine appreciation that we write to thank Bryce and Denise for their wonderful efforts which resulted in the sale of our house. We originally met Denise and Bryce at an open home in Auckland and were really impressed with their honesty and professionalism that we had no hesitation in contacting them when we decided to sell our own home.
At that point we were not in a position to sell, having just started renovations and had still not decided which agent to appoint. We interviewed several agents before we decided to use UP. However, when they visited us, what really made them stand out from other agents was the interest they showed in what we were doing and their eye for detail. Their knowledge of interiors really helped us as far as our renovations were concerned. They showed interest in all aspects of our renovations - from the type of flooring we were going to put down to the colours of the walls! Bryce and Denise also gave us valuable input with what we needed to do to appeal to the market we were aiming at and ultimately get the best possible price for our house. No other agents had shown this degree of enthusiasm or interest - they brought customer service to a new level. This continued all the way through the process and they were always available to listen, give us practical advice and keep us well informed of how the marketing campaign was going. The feedback we received each week was formally done and we were kept in the picture with emails and phone calls or visits.
They are flexible, quick thinking sales people and have an intimate knowledge of the area. A joy to deal with! They made our house sale a smooth and painless process. We would not hesitate in referring Bryce and Denise to anyone who wants a professional, high quality service from real estate agents who ultimately deliver fantastic results.

We have recently sold our Remuera apartment and after recommendations from Bryce and Denise decided to go to auction, a process we had not been involved in before and were very wary of. A great relationship developed between us when we realised that we could depend on them to have our best interests at heart keeping us well informed every step of the way. We never felt under pressure and were not given promises that were not delivered. This resulted in a great outcome at an extremely well run auction, showcasing the great team they have supporting them at Unlimited Potential. We thank Bryce and Denise for all their hard work on our behalf and would be happy to recommend them to anyone who is selling their home.

To Whom It May Concern,
When marketing our family home of over 50 years, we selected a company who would offer the trust and integrity that met the expectations of our extended family. The team at UP delivered in every aspect of the marketing campaign. In a changing market, the team was astute in deploying a range of strategies from their marketing toolbox. Their personable and transparent weekly reports reflected a level of professional engagement which sustained our level of confidence in their ability to deliver results. This partnership kept us buoyant and informed through to the successful sale of our property.
McConnell Property Limited (MPL) is currently delivering a 5000m2 quality commercial office building in to the Auckland market. The building, branded Ascot Central is located next to the Ascot Hospital on Greenlane Rd East. MPL retained Colliers International to manage the marketing and sales process for the project in conjunction with a considered public relations campaign.
We were impressed with Colliers approach to the project and in particular the proactive assistance of Bryce Holmes and John Davies in assisting in securing a 100% pre-sale position for MPL prior to construction commencing earlier this year. I would have no hesitation in retaining Bryce and John's skills in any future commercial office opportunities that MPL seeks to pursue.
Brian and Clare
This is the first time that my wife and I have written to a firm of real estate
agents expressing gratitude for a job well done.
Clare and I had made a decision earlier this year to sell our Remuera family
home because all of our children are now attending university out of Auckland.
We no longer required a 5 bedroom home and wanted to shift outside the city.
However, because of past experiences with buying and selling property, we
wanted to be absolutely sure that we had the right agents acting on the sale.
We took particular care about choosing agents and invited expressions of
interest from a number of agents working in the Remuera area. Unlimited
Potential impressed us the most. Their initial presentation was very thorough,
professionally and attractively prepared and free of unnecessary hype.
We were particularly impressed by the firm's culture and team approach. At all
times, we had two agents, Peter Cleave and Bryce Holmes working on the sale.
They explored alternative ways of selling the property with us. At no stage did
they give us the impression that their sole objective was to achieve a quick sale
and get their commission. Our needs and interests were their priority. We
found that we had a really good rapport with them. They were cheerful,
engaging and energetic.
Their negotiations on our behalf were effective and they managed to achieve a
sale without our feeling under any pressure at all. The transaction remarkably
was stress free. There was no irritation factor! We can say without any
hesitation that, if we wish to buy or sell again, Unlimited Potential will be our
agents of choice.

Bryce is the agent you want on your team. From our initial meeting, Bryce’s knowledge of the market, sales strategies and professionalism gave us the confidence to trust his judgement with the marketing and selling of our home. The property was plaster and as a result Bryce had warned us of the associated perceptions that would be testing us on a daily bases. The auction produced good bidding however not to a level that we had hoped for. Post auction Bryce was still optimistic and continued to be pro-active with buyers, and produced three more offers resulting in a sale that we were happy with. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking to sell their home and would definitely employ his services again should they be required.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Bryce Holmes for taking the time and effort with all of the research and communications prior to putting our St Heliers house on the market.
Bryce gave us all the information and advice that enabled us to make the right marketing plan. Although our house did not sell at auction Bryce’s negotiation skills with the prospective buyer and hard work made the sale happen.
During the entire process Bryce continued to keep us advised via meetings, phone calls and emails at all times and we felt confident in his ability to look after us.
Bryce is extremely professional and we would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone selling their property and would definitely employ his services again should they be required.
Bronwen and Vaughan Smith
We first met Denise Champion and Bryce Holmes at open homes and were very impressed with the care they took over the selling of other peoples’ houses. Their interaction with us as potential buyers was at all times extremely helpful and courteous. When the time came for us to sell our house we thought of no others. We felt very secure in their hands and so it was proven as our house sold.
Denise and Bryce are very experienced agents with a wide knowledge of real estate. Their professionalism at all times was top notch and so too was that of the other members of the UP Remuera office. We were extremely well looked after throughout the whole process and thoroughly recommend them.
