Exceeding expectations is nothing new for high-flyer David Downie.
From an illustrious career in aviation, which saw him awarded as New Zealand’s youngest long haul flight attendant, and one of the youngest ever to manage a 777 aircraft – David has been making service paramount to his success for over 15 years.
Keeping cool under pressure at 40,000 feet has prepared David exceptionally well for a curve ball or five. Relishing a challenge he attributes one of the main attractions to a career in real estate as the exciting and varied environment – fiercely negotiating with buyers one day to researching and preparing for clients the next.
Not resting on his aero-expertise, David is a perennial property buyer, and since purchasing his first property at the ripe old age of 21, has bought, renovated and sold four more properties since. Currently residing in Kingsland, his sharp eye for detail and superior market-knowledge have enabled him to hit the ground running in the premium Ponsonby area.
Evident from his quick progression through the ranks, David’s business smarts and ability to identify with his clients ensures he is consistently one step ahead of the game. While gathering all and any information that’s available to him (through seminars, industry events and local publications), David understands that not all information is created equal and as an industry expert it is his role to keep abreast of all market trends, fluctuations and information.
A people-person who loves to surprise and delight, David’s exceptional communication skills extend past the English language and as a proficient Japanese speaker, he has also dedicated time learning Bahasa Indonesia, spending a year in Jakarta immersing himself in the language.
It comes as no surprise then that David has chosen a partnership with Bayleys. Believing he has the perfect combination of insight, customer service and tenacity, coupled with Bayleys extensive networks and exceptional marketing opportunities – the sky is the limit for David Downie.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to the two most amazing real estate agents I have had the pleasure of working with. David and Lisa’s honesty, professionalism and dedication has made selling my property a completely stress free process. From their good humour, to home staging tips, to the regular feedback I always felt consulted and valued as a vendor. I cannot recommend them more highly!
