Having started his real estate career in May 1987, just a few months before the biggest share market collapse in modern times, and the subsequent flow on effect into real estate, Wayne is no stranger to the swings and moods of the Queenstown property market.
However, whatever the state of the market, his approach never varies. “When I heard the phrase ‘accentuate the positive’ I discovered that it can be applied to every property and every circumstance and at any time,” he says. “Mind you, it is always easy to find the positives in a wonderful place like Queenstown”, adds Wayne.
With experience as a prominent property auctioneer and business owner/manager, he now chooses to work at Bayleys. He has his full REINZ qualification and is also a licensed REAA agent.
With Bayleys, he cites the strength of the brand and the strong commitment to the greater Queenstown area as being huge attractions for clients and customers, as well as their nationwide dominance in the commercial, residential and rural property sectors. “Additionally, I am amazed at how quickly Bayleys can change gear to suit the current market and the wants and needs of both clients and customers” he says.
When he’s not wearing his real estate hat, you might find Wayne on the ski slopes or on one of the great golf courses the area has to offer.
“A huge thank you to Wayne and the awesome team at Bayleys. Superb effort with a tremendous result in selling our Queenstown house. Having initially employed the wrong real estate company, whom failed grandly, we were then filled with disillusion so attempted to sell privately. Wayne was recommended to me via several sources, much to my subsequent delight. Genuine and honest are two qualities not often found, however, Wayne possesses both in reams.
Once again, thanks team, for a brilliant result!”
“Thank you sincerely for your efforts to close the sale and see things through to settlement for us. This was an amazing effort considering there are 14 beneficiaries and both the vendor and purchaser were located at great distance from you. Your professionalism and work ethic along with your customer service skills and communication manner made my position as sole trustee and executor so much easier during the entire marketing and eventual sale process. Last and far from least you achieved all of the above to achieve a price within our stipulated range – no easy challenge!”
“Thanks for your assistance with our purchase of the property in Arrowtown. We really appreciate it.
Hope to work with you again in the future ...”
Deanne and Jeremy, Hong Kong
“Well done indeed! Thanks for all your work. While others have managed not to sell it, you have pulled it off.
So, I am glad we persisted with your good work after the auction. Best wishes.”

“I recently had the pleasure of working with Wayne Cafe during the sale of my property at 2A Highview Terrace, Queenstown. I found Wayne to be efficient and professional in his handling of the marketing and promoting of the property. His sensitivity to my needs was most appreciated.
I would happily engage his services again and would recommend Wayne at BayleysLocations Frankton to anyone considering selling their property.”
