Aaron Haabjoern

Licensee Salesperson

Aaron's clients ask just two things of him: Market their property and negotiate on the sale price. He delivers on both, exceptionally well.

Achieving the best price for a client is a given. Every agent says they’ll do that, but not every agent knows how to achieve it. For Aaron, it comes down to strategy – and you need to have an individual strategy for each house you sell, because every property is different.

Yes, a generic sales strategy, where you let the auction process and the current market do your job for you will work, but will it get you the best price? Definitely not.

Aaron is passionate about what he does, and he has an absolute dedication to achieving the best possible price for his clients.

He is a skilled negotiator and marketer, and prides himself on his attention to detail and his ability to listen to the needs of his clients. This is Aaron’s approach to real estate.

He identifies likely buyers to ensure that your marketing targets that group. Rather than using the usual generic Real Estate photography company, Aaron engages a professional architectural photographer who spends the necessary time to capture the essence of your home, and then carefully crafts the words to attract the right potential buyers – the passionate buyers that are going to give you the premium price.

Communication is key, and Aaron is systematic about reporting back to his vendors – giving in-depth analysis about the potential buyers. The more information you have, the more power you have, and as an owner you need to be empowered when it comes time to make a decision.

Since joining Ray White Ponsonby in 2010 Aaron has been one of the office’s top performers, achieving Ray White Premier Status in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. In 2016 he was awarded Elite Status which recognises that he is in the top 5% of salespeople in NZ. In 2011, he teamed up with fellow agent, Jan George, to form a formidable partnership specialising in the northern slopes of Herne Bay and Greater Ponsonby. And together they have sold over $200,000,000 worth of property.

If you are thinking of selling or would just like a chat about the state of the current market, please feel free to give Aaron a call.

What people are saying

Jan and Aaron have an extensive knowledge of Herne Bay and its residents which made them an excellent choice when we came to sell. They were professional, honest and transparent in their dealings with us and in their marketing of the property. They kept us fully informed with thorough updates and we were very happy with the whole process of the successful sale of our property.


Well before we made the decision to sell our property, we visited multiple open homes to experience agents differing styles while they were on the job. You see, in our opinion, ‘up front’ the selection of the right agent is absolutely critical – the rest just falls into place - the total package. Our experience with Jan and Aaron was honest and transparent dealings for all parties thereby maximising the value of our property.

Mark & Linda

Jan and Aaron are a very good team with years of knowledge and experience in the Herne Bay area. We enjoyed their calm, professional manner and soon after the sale of our house they also found us a new home to buy which was a great result for us.

Geoff & Lesley

We thought selling was going to be stressful. Couldn’t have been further than the truth. As soon as Jan and Aaron took over, we relaxed. Totally committed to us, very professional and always told us how it was. Really liked working with them and best of all, a great result.

Christine & Dave

We recently asked Jan and Aaron to sell and market our home in Freemans Bay. We found them to be very professional, hard working, and excellent to deal with. Their commitment to us as vendors was fantastic and we felt that they went that extra mile to achieve a great price. We would not hesitate to recommend Jan to any potential vendors.

Dianne & Mike

Jan & Aaron are awesome to work with. They provided a detailed marketing strategy and delivered a comprehensive service during the marketing campaign to ensure the best result. Jan & Aaron's professional approach to the finer details of the sale of our house in Herne Bay enabled us to get a price that we only dreamed of – 42.5% above CV. They delivered and executed everything as promised with an overwhelming result! We are so pleased with their professionalism and commitment and have no hesitation in recommending Jan & Aaron to others.

Trustworthy, follows up and keeps in contact. Liked by the purchasers or potential purchasers.


Because of the excellent, helpful and open minded service, and the surprisingly correct estimate of the sales price achieved compared to my own estimates and expectations.
