What are the key elements that define a successful real estate agent? For Ananda de Koning, it is her innate ability to be genuine, intuitive and approachable, and treat every single person with respect.
Originally from Cape Town, now based in beautiful Whanganui, Ananda has been a licensed salesperson since May 2019. As a result of her hard work and dedication, she recently won Best Marketing Campaign, Highest Percentage Growth, the Bayleys national nomination for the REINZ Rising Star category and recognized as a Game Changer in her field by Bayleys for International Women’s day.
Ananda brings a fresh attitude and a unique approach to real estate. She comes from a very strong sales management background and has gained valuable insight into real estate with her involvement in the industry in different capacities, including Marketing Manager for Bartley Real Estate. There she played a key role in the highly successful re-launch of the Bayleys brand in the Whanganui region. In addition to this she gained invaluable experience at NZME where she managed all the Real Estate agencies’ marketing portfolios including the Property Guide, Whanganui Chronicle, One Roof and radio).
This experience has equipped Ananda with an intimate, well-balanced understanding of the market. She brings a wealth of knowledge and will expertly market and showcase your property to achieve the best possible result. She is principled when it comes to delivering outstanding service. Efficient and upfront, she believes listening is key to understanding your needs and desired outcomes and to deliver exceptional results.
She knows there are no shortcuts to success - you must make a genuine connection with your clients and put in the hours on their behalf. “It is a privilege to become part of someone’s life journey. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a big smile and hearing a heartfelt thanks,” she says.
We found working with Ananda from Bayleys absolutely effortless and can’t fault her on anything. Saying she went over and above for us is an understatement. She kept as up to date on every development and her time frames were spot on. We got a better price than what we expected and much better service. We will without a doubt recommend Ananda to anyone looking to sell their home.
