Simon Damerell


Simon's intention is to develop a real estate company with the highest industry standards of communication, ethics, disclosure & respect.

Simon has been part of the Ray White team since 1997. He moved into real estate  after a very successful career in education, including a position as Principal of Remuera Primary School and Chairperson of the Auckland Primary Principals' Association. He has been part of the social fabric of Ponsonby since living in the area as a student during the 1970's and has been a local home owner for the past 26 years.

Simon believes that the service we provide must be of the same level that people would expect of any other professional such as their doctor or lawyer. It is this belief in ethics, disclosure and commitment to legal rigour which has seen Simon appointed to the General Standards Committee of the Auckland District Law Society.

'individual circumstances aside, we are the most important professional in peoples lives for the brief period that their home is on the market'

The structures and systems within the company enable us to provide the vendor the greatest probability of multiple offers on one day and to discover what purchasers will ultimately pay, rather than what they would like to pay. This ensures vendors achieve the best price available in the market place.

Simon is in partnership with Gower Buchanan and Carole Pedder. Their aim is to be proud of every aspect of their business, every transaction and the way in which every person on the team carries out their role.

'Both vendors and purchasers can choose our company confident in the knowledge that their needs will be met to the highest standards'

What people are saying

The Ponsonby office has been recognised consistently amongst the top 3 Ray White offices in the country, year after year. There are few examples of this level of success within the industry and it is testament to Simon and Gower’s efforts in developing a team of high achievers who are dedicated to exceeding customer expectations.

You can entrust Ray White Ponsonby with your real estate needs in the knowledge that you will be receiving outstanding personalised service with a broad range of marketing concepts that respond to achieving a premium price.
