Our role is to continually invest in our business to create a platform that assists each team member to succeed, grow and develop in their roles and their lives. That platform although important - is not what makes our business great. It’s actually our team culture that is our point of difference. Each individual member contributes to the special fabric that makes up our team culture.

Our Auctions

The homes we sell are unique. The way we sell each one should be too. In 2015 we made two major decisions that have cemented us as auction leaders within Greater Ponsonby Real Estate.
The decision to move our Auctions to The Sapphire Room in Ponsonby Central came from a desire to ensure that uniquely Greater Ponsonby homes were sold in a quintessential Ponsonby space. With its high ceilings, recycled wooden floors and air of industrial chic The Sapphire Room has the feel of a cool urban loft. Alive with natural light its industrial windows showcase expansive views across the rooftops to the distant Waitakeres.

WE ONLY HAVE ONE CHANCE TO REPRESENT OUR CLIENTS PROPERTY. WE DON'T LEAVE ANYTHING TO CHANCE.Flying Gavin Croft in as our Auctioneer and Trainer is a large investment that we make on a weekly basis. Our commitment to being the best auction strategists and marketers means that we must utilise one of the best auctioneers in Australasia. What makes him the best? His ability to extract more money on the auction floor than any other person we have ever worked with. No training is ever the same with Gavin - which means that on a weekly basis we are challenged to grow and develop as individuals and as a collective team.

 

Our Team Culture

CULTURE [NOUN} 1. THE IDEAS, CUSTOMS AND SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR OF A PARTICULAR PEOPLE OR SOCIETY.

If this is the definition of culture, how do we fit within this? Every single fibre in our body is made up of achieving the best price for every home we sell. This idea drives every decision we make about every part of the real estate process and how we interact with each other.

When each person in the team has confidence in achieving the best possible price a massive sense of pride is created. That pride in each deal and each other means that we will never seek anything, but a win for our clients and a win for one another. This pride is what holds an incredibly diverse group of people and personalities together.

 

 

Team culture will ensure that in the age of disruption we continue to grow in relevance. It is one that ensures every team member makes client centric decisions and contributions to our business. The trust and confidence that each person has in each other is one of the most wonderful things about our business. Every day we bring to our business an innovative mindset - an aim to disrupt our own business and to make it better for each and every member of our team. When considering a choice of team to join - know that our business combines both experience and youth to provide an environment which we hope will help you grow and develop as a person.

Giving Back

Our director, Simon Damerell has had a lifelong commitment to the environment, personally planting in excess of 2 native trees for each day of his life. To give you an idea of how many trees that is - lets just say he recently applied for his gold card. He sees the Ray White Damerell Group teams enthusiasm for our community projects as a rewarding way to be involved with our local community. Our other director, Gower has also called auctions for Western Springs College and the New Zealand Contemporary Dance Company as well as organising a Christchurch earthquake appeal fundraiser - which raised over $10,000. Make sure to keep an eye on our weekly newsletter and website for any upcoming events or initiatives.

 

  

P.A Support

Not only do we contribute to funding a P.A for you. But we also assist you with effectively managing them - the hardest part. What we know is that most salespeople are not great managers. But they still expect great P.As. It can be a lonely job being a single team member in a salespersons business.
