About Dave

Specialising in the sale of apartments across Auckland’s central suburbs and having worked in Real Estate for the past 15 years, Dave Hamlyn is a proven long term performer who leaves nothing to chance when it comes time to maximise the value of his clients’ assets.

Having enjoyed success through differing market cycles, Dave is well versed in producing a result in even the most challenging of conditions, with his ability to offer outstanding customer service and premium results in any market.

While clients will tell you that Dave is a clear and concise communicator who enjoys removing the stress out of the sale process, colleagues would agree that it’s his open and friendly demeanour which renders him instantly likeable and easy to get along with. Building trust with a proven track record of results, Dave prioritises his business relationships as an integral component to his success.

Focussed, motivated and committed, Dave has cemented a reputation as the ‘go-to’ salesperson in some of Auckland’s more challenging apartment complexes. Equipped with a complete understanding of the nuances that those with less experience often fail to comprehend, it’s doubtless that Dave’s understanding of hotel leases, remedial affected buildings and the investment sector is second to none.

Having amassed a wide and varied network thanks to years of successful sale results, Dave is superbly placed to find the buyers that others can’t – an attribute which is only strengthened by Bayleys’ global profile and innovative marketing techniques.

Dave is certainly the salesperson you want on your side to bring in the top results. To discuss the market or your property more specifically – he welcomes your call.



Auction Award - 2016




Our experience with Dave Hamlyn was excellent. He made the whole process of selling very straightforward and communicated with us at every stage. At all times he looked after our interests and understood our position and our expectations. He was professional in all his dealings and would be the best real estate person I have ever experienced.

Dave Hamlyn is knowledgable and organised. He put a lot of time and work into selling my apartment and was always ready to answer questions. His advice was sound and I am pleased with the result.

R.L. (Vendor)


Dave Hamlyn gave us full details of our options and always kept us informed. He was very efficient, contacting prospective buyers and dealing with our solicitor. We didn't have to do a thing. He just got on and sold the property for us and dealt with all the administration. A very easy process, especially considering that we live a great distance from Auckland.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Wendy and Dave for the sale of our Sugartree apartment. This was our first property sale and after a rocky start with another estate agent, we were sceptical about how much support we would receive. From day one, Wendy and Dave were open, honest and committed to marketing our property and doing everything they could to find the right buyer. Importantly for me, they treated me and my husband equally which had not been the case with our previous agent who believed the man was the only decision maker worth talking to! They kept us fully informed about progress without overloading us with details and were very accommodating to our time and work locations when it came down to closing the sale. It would have been easy to justify their enthusiasm based on the commission they would receive from the sale, but we felt that there was more to it than just money with Wendy and Dave. We really felt that they cared about us and the opportunities the sale of this property would bring to us and our young family.

To Whom It May Concern

Ours was an estate sale and so the option of holding the property for an extended period of time was not available it had to be sold.

I engaged Dave Hamlyn of Bayleys as he had a good track record of success selling apartments in our building despite it having a substantial remedial weather tightness project pending in the near future.

Dave Hamlyn met me on site and talked confidently but realistically I felt about his assessment of the value of the estate apartment. He is a qualified valuer which gives him additional authority in that respect I think.

Dave suggested an auction solution and he and Wendy Nichols took the time to come and see me and take me through the agency agreement clause by clause and answer any questions I had. There were two executors of the estate so they had to keep both of us informed throughout.

Dave and Wendy suggested several options for a marketing programme from which we chose an option – the associated photography was I think exceptional.

Dave and Wendy ran four weeks of open homes reporting to us in detail after each one with both phone calls and emails. They followed up open home attendees and qualified them as potential auction bidders. They also canvassed Bayleys existing extensive database of property investors.

On auction day we had as they had predicted two bidders and a successful auction given our circumstances. I would recommend Dave Hamlyn and Wendy Nichols if you want to sell an apartment.


D.S (Vendor)


Hello Dave and Wendy

Thank you very much for your awesome work to sell our apartment.

As you know, our building has significant weather tightness issues, with a large repair cost planned.

Thanks to your experience with the building, you were able to gather four legitimate bidders to attend my auction, and even turned up a fifth bidder on the day.

This process resulted in a competitive bidding process from well-informed investors.  The result was a very acceptable price for me.

I found you both to be very sincere in your efforts, working tirelessly with all interested investors.

You kept us very well-informed, and were very open to our ideas.

We found your interaction to be straight forward and very professional.

Although we had not met you before, we came to trust you 100% as we could clearly see you are both very sincere, trying to get the best result for all parties.

The sale process via auction went ahead exactly as you had planned.  Your recommended auctioneer was expert in encouraging all bidders, and making use of our reserve price at an opportune time to maintain the bidding momentum.

We endorse you 100% to any other property owners looking for a successful sale process.

Best regards

C and Y (Vendors)


I really can’t recommend Dave and Wendy highly enough. They gave us incredible help and support during a very difficult time for our family. We needed to sell a deceased estate at a time when that was the last thing we wanted to think about. They guided us through the necessary steps, took care of all the detail and kept in regular contact throughout. They achieved a great result for us in what was a very complicated sale. On top of that, they were unfailingly warm and kind - huge thanks!

S.C (Vendor)


We would like to say what a great team Dave and Wendy are, we would like to thank them for the sale of our Apartment at the Heritage. We found them to be honest and friendly and very easy to work alongside.

C & T (Vendors)

Hi Dave

Bob and I are happy to provide this reference for your website.

Dear Dave and Walt,

Thank you for the work that you did for us in securing the sale of our apartment. We found you both to be professional, courteous and tireless in bringing about a successful sale. We would definitely recommend you to others and we would use you again.

Wendy and David as the owner of unit XXX  in the Heritage hotel pool I would personally like to thank you both over the sale of the unit with Bayleys. The sale happened well within the allocated time of selling an apartment in the CBD, as the owner I found you both very professional, friendly, easy to work with and most importantly you both had my best interests at heart in achieving the best results for both parties. 

Thank you both for a stress free smooth transition with the sales process and for listening and believing that being in the hotel pool had benefits for the current owner and advantages to the new owner in buying the property.

Appreciate all your hard professional work in achieving a very exceptional result, and look forward to working with you both again in selling another unit in the heritage hotel pool selling these quality apartments. 

Regards D M (Vendor)


Thank you, much appreciate for your professional services, and wish you all the best. Kind regards B.L (Vendor)


Would like to thank Walt and Dave of Bayleys for their efforts in the sale of our city apartment. A good offer was presented within a week and after their efforts in achieving our price the property was sold that day.

Thanks again P.M. (Vendor)

We cannot speak highly enough of the expertise these guys have in the apartment market & we were very impressed with their professionalism & the results of their marketing of our property.

This particular scenario was not straight forward but we were given the very helpful information

upfront, offered the options available & their recommendations for each situation, the key was they matched the buyer with the type of apartment that would appeal to their situation. We signed with Bayleys & 9 days later had an unconditional sale. The icing on the cake was the sale price exceeded our expectation.

We have no hesitation in recommending Dave & Marcus to any new clients, in fact we signed up for Dave & Marcus to sell other properties for us & we couldn't be happier.”

B.M & M.S (Vendors)


“We would like to thank you for the great result at auction. While we're sure the skill of the auctioneer was important, the fact that you presented so many keen buyers was instrumental. Thanks for all the hard yards you and Marcus put in over the weeks leading up to that day. Thanks also for keeping us up to speed every step of the way. We are sure no-one could have delivered a better outcome for us.”

S.M & P.M. (Vendors)


“Once again Bayles has successfully sold a property for us. We would highly recommend this company for their professional approach and integrity. Dave Hamlyn and Grant Elliott talked us through the sale process and have been most efficient keeping us informed and using their negotiation skills to get us the best result possible.”

G.E & R.E (Vendors)


“I have spoken to few agents during the process to sell my property, no one gave me confidence that my property can be sold for more than (‘X’ amount) but when I spoke to you, you gave me confidence and explained the reason it was possible. I live in Australia and I am not familiar with the New Zealand sale process, but you have guided me through every step right through to the final sale. I felt confident and also felt I was in good hands to get best possible price for my property. I very much appreciate you and your team for all the support to sell my property. I will recommend you to anyone wishing to sell or buy properties in Auckland. I hope we will have another opportunity to work together. With thanks”

M.S (Vendor)


“We were impressed. Dave sold our home within a week of getting the listing. He is personable, knowledgeable, honest and clearly hard working. As a registered Valuer who works for a reliable company with a great reputation; we felt safe in his hands and trusted his advice. He willingly came to meetings in our home, and kept us well informed through the whole fast moving process.”

S.S and J.S (Vendors, Jan 2016)


The recent sale of my apartment in the Heritage Building was a great success. This was largely due to the efforts if Bayleys salesperson; David Hamlyn. Dave was extremely competent & professional. His friendly approach was welcoming & appreciated. His communication was ongoing & I always felt the sale was in good hands. I highly recommend Dave in his field of sales & wish him well for the future.

Hi Dave, just a note of thanks to you and the Bayleys team for a great result today in selling our apartment. We followed your advice on the marketing and sales strategy, which has delivered above our expectations. We decided to engage your services because you were the only agent over the past year that showed an interest that was geared around getting the best value for us. Over the past three weeks you have kept us well informed on open home progress working to a tight time frame. There is no doubt in our minds we will use your services again and if you should require us to be a referee for any other client don’t hesitate to ask.

T.P. (Vendor)


Dear David

I am writing to thank you for the service you provided in selling my apartment recently. I appreciated the way you kept me informed at every step and for securing me a price that was more that I had expected. I especially appreciated you arranging contact from the auctioneer, who walked me through a process I had not been involved in before.

Kind regards P.B. (Vendor)


I live in Indonesia and wanted to sell my property, but I wasn't able to be present in New Zealand nor sell the apartment by myself through various ways. I'm very satisfied with the working attitude of the two Bayleys staff that handled the whole transaction, Dave Hamlyn and Marcus Fava. They're both were very professional throughout the whole process, starting from when I asked them to sell my apartment until the point the apartment was sold. I highly recommend those who read this testimony to work with either Dave or Marcus or any Bayleys staff. May both Dave and Marcus's life be full of success and happiness and may Bayleys become more and more successful in the future. Thank you for everything you've done, I highly appreciate it.

L.M (Vendor for 3C/6 St Martins Lane)


Of the Agents that we were in contact with - you were closest to the mark regarding the most likely sell price. The others estimated either optimistically high or much lower. Just thought you might appreciate knowing. Thanks again
