Dedicated, disciplined, results driven. St Heliers Sales Manager, John Wills, brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to his role. He’s clocked up around two decades in real estate and it was his huge passion for helping people succeed that attracted John to the property industry.
John sees Bayleys as the strongest real estate brand in the country and the high level of respect it carries in the community sits well with his personal values. A snapshot of how John came into real estate in 2003 demonstrates how he became the highly disciplined ethics driven agent he is today. He has a background in the NZ Police, NZ Triathlon age group representative and personal fitness training, both requiring high levels of physical and mental agility, integrity and trust. Later, after working in real estate as a highly successful agent, John also had the experience of setting up his own custom real estate company in 2008 and navigating it through the challenges of the global financial crisis. Custom Residential Real Estate went on to sell approx. $1.5 billion worth of property over 12 years.
All of this impressive background has positioned John well for his current role with Bayleys. Known for being highly energetic and a results-getter, John’s expertise is now hugely valued in the St Heliers office where he leads a dynamic team. John’s passion for property permeates every aspect of his life. His loves are city fringe homes, character homes and homes near the water – all property classes that St Heliers has in abundance. His massive sales experience means John knows how to get great outcomes for clients and their elite homes.
Outside of work John’s love of physical fitness and sports comes to the fore and he can be found in the gym, walking his two rescue dogs and swimming at the beach. He also enjoys improving his knowledge by listening to podcasts.
John is an avid supporter of the local community (he is on the Central Swimming Club committee) and charities including the RSA, Shine, Salvation Army and many more. On Anzac weekend 2020 John completed an impressive 18,277 press-ups in his garage to raise $13,000 for the RSA Poppy Day. He also enjoys taking part in Charity Boxing Matches.
As sales manager of Bayleys St Heliers John is always looking to future trends so he can lead his team on to ever-better results for the office’s many valued clients. He’s extremely proud to be a part of the altogether better Bayleys family.
