You can’t beat local knowledge. Born and bred in Remuera, schooled at St Kenigern and Auckland Grammar, there is no doubt, Reuben truly is a local. A resident for 30 years, he lives down the road from our office at Dilworth Ave. With connections as an Auckland Grammar old boy, former Parnell Cricket Club and Grammar Rugby Club member, Reuben is the right person to find the right buyer for your home.
Personable, energetic and considered his people experience extends to hospitality and vast commercial experience in film and television. A keen swimmer and surfer and older than he looks, Reuben’s ability to listen, and passion to get it right will impress.
"I couldn’t speak highly enough of Reuben! From our very first meeting, regarding selling our Remuera based property, I was confident Mum and I were in safe hands. Reuben was meticulous, enthusiastic and smart at every stage of the process. He went out of his way to ensure the house was seen in its best light, that the marketing appealed to the right audience and was always available to us and to prospective purchasers. Given all of this we had an excellent number of people who were interested in the property and it put us in a great position to sell, even in the changing market. Reuben is a genuine agent and an absolutely lovely guy, who was a pleasure to deal with. "
"I recently worked with Reuben on a very sensitive and critical sale of a large family property. On his advise we elected to market the property through a foreign expo, a strategy that was ultimately very effective.
The successful sale process took some months to finally come to fruition and required tenacity, perseverance and considerable negotiating skill. Reuben is honest by nature, hard working and perceptive. He continually offered relevant advise throughout the sale process which gave us a result which far exceeded our expectations.
We would unreservedly recommend Reuben."
"Thank you so much for the incredible job you did in selling our mum’s home. From the very first client meeting to the last, you were professional in every way. You talked us through every step, gave us regular updates on progress and comprehensive vendor reports each week. You ran an incredible marketing campaign which culminated in an amazing auction where the sale price was way above our expectation.
We were negative about auctions all the way through, and that can’t have been easy for you, but we would never have achieved the price we got if we had gone straight to market, because the figure we achieved was not on our radar! Thank you so much for being adamant that Auction was the way to go! Reuben, you were wonderful!
"I decided to go with younger and more energetic agents after seeing my two neighbours fail at auction with older agents from a different agency. Jamie and Reuben fit the bill perfectly and did not disappoint. Their energy and enthusiasm was what we needed to see us through such a trying experience and kept us up to the mark as well. The end result was very satisfactory and their advice was much appreciated.
I have no hesitation in recommending them to future clients."
