Chris Batchelor is a man who knows his market. Committed to providing a seamless and straightforward experience in a friendly yet professional manner, Chris understands what matters most when selling your biggest asset: that if a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.

The proof is in the results, with 90% of Chris’ listings repeat clients or referrals. Part of this success is due to his speedy response time – there’s no getting back to people the next day, contacting Chris ensures you get what you need, when you need it.

With an intimate knowledge of Auckland’s blue chip inner suburbs, he lives and breathes real estate and knows everything there is to know about Ponsonby and its surrounds, from the best bars, cafes and restaurants, to parks, shopping and, of course, property.

Chris’ consistent success revolves around delivering the premium customer service people expect and deserve when selling their homes. It’s a task he considers himself privileged to manage, and he ensures his relationships are founded on trust combined with frank, open communication.

Importantly, he also gets the value of surrounding himself with the right people so that, come auction day, everything is perfect. Auckland’s top photographers, copywriters, floor planners, home stagers, cleaners, builders and more are all at his disposal, and with his trusty full time PA by his side, nothing is missed.

Chris’ enthusiasm and energy spreads to all aspects of his life. Married with two kids, he’s always on the go, and loves snowboarding, golf and getting out on the water. Chris is also a Bayleys Super Giver for the Make a Wish Foundation, and every year holds a fundraising movie night for the charity.

Prior to his career in real estate, Chris spent 10 years living in Switzerland and the Cotswolds working in art sales, providing a solid foundation in robust and efficient management, effective networking and the crucial aspect of selling.

With an uncanny ability to match people with the right property, and his friendly yet professional style, it’s little wonder Chris is known as the go-to guy for astute vendors.



When we came to sell our Grey Lynn home we spoke with several agents but Chris Batchelor impressed us most, and we are so pleased we listed with him. Chris worked extremely hard for us. He was incredibly trustworthy, had great attention to detail, and kept us in the loop every step of the way. We were delighted with the result he achieved for us and would absolutely recommend him if you’re thinking about listing your property.

Selling real estate requires an agent who can work with people making big decisions at a stressful time: I am glad I chose Chris Batchelor as he has been professional, knowledgeable, and frank, and well supported by Bayleys systems.

 Chris Batchelor has been amazing from the moment I approached him to sell my property. His knowledge of the area and database are invaluable. Both Chris and Lydia have guided me through each step which resulted in a very successful and quick sale of my property. I will highly recommend Chris to all my friends and family.


Vendor – Jervois Road


“We were delighted with our decision to select Chris to sell our Grey Lynn villa. From start to finish, Chris was, professional, efficient and always happy to work around our busy schedules. He was careful to explain the marketing and sale process, and provided some incisive thinking for our sale strategy. Chris has a wealth of experience in the very competitive Ponsonby/Grey Lynn market, and he was able to draw on that experience to help us make a number of important decisions throughout the campaign; we felt very confident with Chris’s strategic advice. He is well connected and engages easily with buyers - we were sure that we would be well- represented at open homes. We felt the whole marketing and sales campaign was well-run, and resulted in an excellent outcome: both the number of bidders, and sale price achieved. We would have no hesitation in recommending Chris to other home owners thinking of selling.”

“ I found Chris to be very professional, personable and diligent to work with. He was able to bring together all the elements which were necessary to produce an auction result that was above and beyond my expectations. He was consistent in his approach – from his initial appraisal of the property’s value right through to his advice as to setting the reserve figure.

I followed his advice and I got a stunning result. I will be recommending him to all my friends. “
