As a previous export agent working backwards and forwards between Japan and New Zealand, Dan Reed was an accomplished salesperson before approaching real estate.
The experience of buying his own home taught Dan the importance of the role an agent plays when making such huge life decisions. He decided to orient his career towards property so that he himself could offer the level of support and excellence he sought from his own agent. Now 10 years into his role, Dan Reed has become a pillar of support for home buyers and vendors in the Herne Bay, Westmere and Ponsonby area.
Dan relays information confidently and accurately providing detailed reports for vendors so there are no surprises. He stays in touch with a regularity to suit, and if there is something he doesn’t know, Dan will find it out and come back to you with a clear directive.
Conscious of the marketing costs to his clients, Dan is focussed on building great marketing strategies and is not afraid to change tack mid-campaign if he can improve their impact – even if that means more work for his team.
When dealing with buyers, Dan says, “you can never know what drives people’s decisions, so I treat everyone who walks through the door like they’ve won the lotto.” He calls back each person who takes the time visit an open home, while not rushing them to make decisions.
Dan exhibits all the hallmarks of a professional, married with a great sense of humour. He remains up to date with the property market, so you don’t have to - closely following local property listings, reading everything he can get his hands on, and talking to a wide range of people to garner their perspectives.
Outside of real estate, Dan dedicates as much time as he can to raising his five-year-old son and supporting Bayfield School with athletics and swimming. Dan’s accomplishments include being an Ironman athlete and competing for New Zealand at the Olympics distance and half iron man competitions. He is now a masters swimmer and a member of Tahuna golf club, relishing the opportunity to teach his son how to play.
