David Downie

Licensee Salesperson

Exceeding expectations is nothing new for high-flyer David Downie.

From an illustrious career in aviation, which saw him awarded as New Zealand's youngest long haul flight attendant, and one of the youngest ever to manage a 777 aircraft - David has been making service paramount to his success for over 15 years.

Keeping cool under pressure at 40,000 feet has prepared David exceptionally well for a curve ball or five. Relishing a challenge he attributes one of the main attractions to a career in real estate as the exciting and varied environment - fiercely negotiating with buyers one day to researching and preparing for clients the next.

Working alongside Lisa Smyth evolved naturally for David. Lisa shares many years of successful sales in the real estate arena. When her clients are asked what best describes Lisa the first thing anyone says is fabulous negotiating skills and complete dedication. She prides herself on working to make the process from listing to selling as smooth and painless as possible while understanding that many people will only buy and sell a few times throughout their lives. Her eye to detail is simply exceptional leaving no stone unturned. She also brings a charismatic energy that allows both potential buyers and vendors to feel completely at ease and able to approach her in confidence.

David and Lisa have had many great campaigns historically and are 100 percent committed to doing so going forward. Providing excellent results and open communication is at the very forefront of what David and Lisa provide to their clients. With a comprehensive skill set to extract the very best money that the marketplace is willing to pay for your property, and the extensive network and exceptional marketing opportunities that the Ray White Damerell Group has to offer - the sky is the limit for David and Lisa.

What people are saying

"David and Lisa are the consummate professionals- friendly and attentive but never pushy. They know their stuff inside out. We had missed out on a few places and nearly decided to stop looking, then several months later David remembered us and contacted us with something he knew was right for our needs. Amazing service and we know who we’ll be listing our next property with."

Paul and Daniel

“David and Lisa did an amazing job of selling our property. They offered a high level of personal service whilst communicating clearly at all times. They made the process easy to understand, by walking through how selling a property works. I never once felt I didn’t understand anything. They showed their experience by advising on how to dress up the house for sale, how to market the property and what the best approach was to sell it. I felt comfortable and more than confident in their abilities, and I would happily recommend them to anyone looking at selling."

Ian Fraser

“I was extremely happy with the service provided by David and Lisa throughout the whole sales process. From the beginning, they were extremely helpful and provided me with advice and support with getting the house ready for the open home process. They kept me regularly updated after each open home and any new sales leads that were generated. They were very supportive during the auction and negotiations that followed. Both David and Lisa made my experience of selling my home less stressful and I would very happily use them again in the future.”

Debbie Dowds

"Lisa and David are a fantastic team. Both very easy to get on with and able to make you relax when you are very stressed. We needed to get our house on the market quickly and they organized everything so smoothly that our house was on the market before we knew it. They were very honest and open with us throughout the whole selling process, keeping us informed on what was happening the whole time. They were always available to answer any questions we had and their suggestions were always sensible and logical. This helped us stay calm, knowing we could trust them to get the result we needed. Even after we sold Lisa still kept in touch to see how we were getting on with purchasing our next home. She was still available to answer questions we had about purchasing at auction. We feel that Lisa and David really understood us and what we needed and they got us there in the short time frame we had. We would happily recommend them to anyone planning to sell their home."
