With more than 17 years sales and marketing experience and a loyal base of local contacts, it's easy to see why Richard Griffin is an award winning real estate salesperson.
He was named Rookie of the Year and Northern Zone Rising Star with his previous real estate firm and is driven to continue this success as an integral part of the Bayleys Howick team.
Richard is a familiar face within the Howick and Bucklands Beach communities.
Richard is big on communication and believes listening is often just as important as speaking when discussing the various aspects of real estate with his clients.
He understands first hand the needs of buyers and vendors having walked in their shoes a number of times. With experience as a labourer in the construction industry, Richard can also offer valuable advice on the subjects of building, compliance and renovation.
Richard's local knowledge is a significant draw card for clients. Having lived in the Eastern suburbs for more than 50 years, Richard has a deep seated knowledge of the local market and how the area can suit the lifestyle needs of potential buyers.
Helping families to buy, sell and achieve their goals is part of what drives Richard.
Richard remains actively involved in his community and is a passionate golfer. He is on the board of the Howick Golf Club and has been a member for 35 years, in addition to managing Auckland and New Zealand Junior Golf Development for four years.
He has completed two marathons and continues to keep fit by attending regular boot camp classes.
Outside of work Richard enjoys spending time with his family, fishing, walking and striving to get back to a zero handicap on the golf course.
