Hugh Seabrook

Licensee Salesperson

If you’re selling your house in the Greater Ponsonby area, the locals will tell you "talk to Hugh".

That’s because Hugh Seabrook is known as one of the most knowledgeable and trusted real estate agents in the area. He’s been selling homes in Greater Ponsonby for 24 years and has lived here since he bought his first house in Murdoch Road when he was just 19 (for $19,000!).  As a result his local knowledge is immense, as is his affection for the area.

“This location is unique. It’s full of beautiful homes in lovely streets, it’s fun, it’s convenient, the focus is on lifestyle. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else”.

Over the years Hugh’s many vendors have become personal friends as well as ongoing clients. He understands that when you live and work in the same area, your integrity becomes your greatest asset. It’s because of this, that Hugh’s clients call him up again when it’s time to make their next move.

“I know from personal experience that selling your home can be stressful –but it doesn’t have to be. I’ve found that the best antidote to vendor stress is keeping in touch with the vendor, keeping them informed all along the way. I like to work alongside my vendor – that way, together; we will achieve the best possible result”.

What people are saying

Paul & Hugh were excellent to deal with in all respects...they kept me well informed at all stages and put a lot of effort into achieving our sale.

I have been requested to record some comments about my dealings with Mr Seabrook in relation to the marketing of my previous property in Ponsonby, Auckland. Since 1974 I have purchased and sold four dwellings in Wellington and Auckland. After purchasing my present dwelling in2010 a friend recommended that I consult Mr Seabrook about marketing my then abode. I have over the years dealt with a number of real estate agents both in New Zealand and overseas and I can say that I found Mr Seabrook's professional approach first class.

I would just like to say, A BIG thank you to Hugh Seabrook from Ray White. I was looking for a real estate agent that I could trust to sell the family home as my father had past away and it was time to move the property on. Dad's neighbour had told me about Hugh and he thought he had a very good reputation and felt he was the most honest agent that he had come across. Well, that was a great reference, so I contacted Hugh. I am so glad I did. Hugh took care of everything for me. He kept in constant contact and updated me most days. He is very professional indeed, very good at his job. It was a pleasure doing business with him and if I ever want to purchase a house in the city, he will be the first person I ring. Thank You Hugh, you made the experience of selling my family home a good one. I am over the moon with the result of the sale.

To anyone considering the sale of their property, I'm writing this to endorse the friendly and professional services as provided by Hugh Seabrook. He provided useful advice and support during the initial process of listing a property, discussing clearly with me all possible options, and went on to generate significant interest in my Grey Lynn property, before it successfully sold at auction. At all times he kept me appraised of progress, feedback, managed open homes with integrity, and assisted me through the process from beginning to end. I'm very happy to promote and endorse him as the excellent real estate agent he proved to be.

I'd like to take this opportunity to pass on my thanks to Hugh for helping me with my purchase. Hugh's personable manner and vast experience helped reassure me throughout the process, and he was always willing to go the extra mile. Thanks again Hugh, absolute pleasure to deal with!

Belinda- Ponsonby

Hi Hugh ...Thanks again from us both.... you did a great job, very impressed with the process... "Hugh was possibly the most professional real estate person I have had the pleasure to be associated with in this often misaligned activity. He guided us with total confidence and achieved a impressive result selling our villa in Ponsonby by using his vast local knowledge and plain hard work" Please feel free to quote me Hugh.... we are very happy!

We recently purchased our new Grey Lynn home via Hugh Seabrook, the vendor's agent. Hugh is not your average real estate agent - we found his approach to be refreshing and appreciated his friendly and professional manner. He clearly has great passion and enthusiasm for what he does and this is evident in his interactions. None of our requests or questions fazed Hugh and he balanced his commitment to the vendor with respect for us the purchaser. You can judge a person by how they react to animals and we have to thank Hugh for his enormous patience and kindness to our rather enthusiastic dog!

Michael & Sarah- Grey Lynn

We were very grateful to Hugh for the superb effort he put into marketing and selling our house. We found Hugh to be honest and professional at all times. He was open and frank in his assessments and very perceptive about how to maximise the potential for our house. His marketing strategy was highly effective. Hugh clearly knows the Ponsonby/Herne Bay/Grey Lynn market extremely well. We would have absolutely no hesitation in using Hugh in the future and would recommend him highly.

David & Sara- Ponsonby

I couldn’t have wished for a better outcome on the sale of my property in terms of price, ease and speed. I feel very lucky to have put my property in the hands of Hugh & Paul to market and sell. Both Hugh & Paul were fantastic to deal with. They are both friendly, warm and have exemplary communication skills. There was never a moment when I was waiting for information or an update. They are honest, reliable and appear unflappable. Instead of the sale of my property being a stressful process, Hugh & Paul made me feel grounded, confident and in very safe hands. Their sound advice and years of experience was invaluable. I would highly recommend Hugh & Paul to anybody looking to sell their property.


We loved these guys! Hugh and Paul are thoroughly professional and great on detail and presentation. Their team approach was very effective, in a relaxed and friendly way, with a real willingness to go the extra distance. They showed genuine interest and enthusiasm throughout, which was really appreciated. We found them very easy to discuss every aspect of the marketing and sale process and felt supported all the way through. Their good advice and follow up with potential buyers definitely assisted the outcome, which we are very happy with. We would highly recommend Hugh and Paul to anyone wanting a good process and great results.

Eric and Jill
