Greg is a committed and dedicated sales professional. Born and raised in the South Island, he has lived in the United Kingdom, Australia and many locations within New Zealand.

In July 1999 with the lifestyle and beauty of Mount Maunganui seeming all too irresistible Greg, moved from Auckland and his passion for selling real estate and the challenges therein began.

The results of that vision, and a desire to succeed is a story engraved on various Group and industry trophies. 

Recognition was first achieved in 2001 when he secured the Eves ‘Rookie of the Year’ award, and later that year ‘The Most Promising New Salesperson’ for the REINZ Waikato, Bay of Plenty and Gisborne district.

In 2002 he was recognised among the industry’s elite when he gained the REINZ Award of Excellence for Outstanding Achievement in Residential Sales.

After 3 years with Eves Realty he became the ‘Eves Residential Salesperson of the Year’ in 2003 and retained that accolade through 2004, 2005 & 2006 when he transferred to Bayleys Real Estate

His decision to transfer across to Bayleys was not one taken lightly. With the Realty Group owning both the Eves business and the Bayleys franchise for Bay of Plenty, Waikato & Taranaki, he was in a privileged position to observe the brand in detail.
Bayley’s’ primary catch phrase ‘marketing is everything’ is evidenced by their many successes from the entry level of the market to the most exclusive properties in the region.

Greg’s work ethic is second to none. He believes that only excellence prevails and has demonstrated his willingness again and again to provide nothing less.
Passionate about real estate Greg has had extensive experience marketing family homes through to premium waterfront properties, rental investments to holiday homes, renovations to redevelopments and deceased estates.

And with more than 560 career sales he brings a wealth of experience to the negotiating table for the benefit of all who contract his services.
Past Clients, many of whom have been more than once, say Greg is diligent, hard-working and patient. Greg has had their interests as a first priority, communicated well, exceeded expectations and was above all - professional.

Being pro-active, forward thinking and with a deep desire to see his Clients’ requirements fulfilled his personal mission statement says it best….

‘Committed to success through helping others achieve their real estate goals’.
