Professional, Friendly, Knowledgeable
I have an unmatched familiarity with the local residential property market to share with you, having lived in Papakura and the surrounding area for the last 43 years.
My personal experience buying, selling and building has given me first-hand knowledge of the rewards property can bring as well as an extensive insight into the real estate industry. I like to work alongside buyers and sellers providing solid advice while guiding them through each stage of the process.
Prior to real estate, I enjoyed over 20 years in the building industry. This experience enabled me to develop effective skills such as customer service and ensuring overall client satisfaction.
Outside of the office, I love to watch English premiership football and some would say I am a fanatic. I also play football for Drury United in the over 40's team. Apart from the sport, I enjoy just relaxing and stoking up the wood fire pizza oven in the backyard.
I would love to help with your property needs. Contact me to see how I can help.
Team Grantham and McGehan were amazing assisting in selling two properties for us. They went above and beyond time and time again. Helping co-ordinate contractors to get work done prior to sale and offering great advice throughout.Steph

Chris has sold three of our properties and with each sale he has gone beyond and above with his professionalism. Chris works extremely hard, is reliable, and we have been so grateful for all the hard work he did to sell our properties. We have really appreciated having Chris as our real estate salesperson. Highly recommend him.Doug & Natalie McLauchlan
"As mentioned, we are very grateful for Chris' professionalism. Whenever we encountered a problem, he was onto it straight away and went above and beyond for us. Nothing was a problem. What stood out for us is how trustworthy he was. We will have no hesitation in using Chris again for our other properties. Highly recommended and appreciated all his hard work!"Doug & Nat - Dounat Limited
I’m so happy with the prices Chris and Karen achieved for us for our houses in Kelvin Rd. So much better than I expected. I’m thankful for how they both made a hard process so much easier and smooth.Sharon
Very professional, easy to work with. Great work selling two houses for us. Karen and Chris are a Great Team!
"If Chris is an example of most of your team then you have a great team. Karen and Shirley were very pleasant also. Chris is so patient. The couple of times I stressed out he was great - calm and humorous a nice combination. He also listens and actively puts your requests into action. Over those five years of dealing with Chris he has always been consistently nice, trustworthy, humorous and had my best interests at heart. He’s a great guy and did his best for me, I am grateful to him. With thanks."Karen Leathart
Karen was very friendly and professional from day one when I asked for an evaluation. Karen and Chris are an excellent team and it shows in all their interactions. Karen led me in the pricing when first placing my home on market and offered solutions to my 'issues' when "other salespeople" contacted me. Karen was immediately responsive and supportive. Karen answered all my questions in a timely manner.Jo
Chris did an amazing job and went far beyond our expectations in selling our property.
"Friendly and excellent service."Dirch Andersen
Karen, Chris and Rebecca are a lovely friendly team who helped me through the selling process with my home. They were patient with explaining all the necessary procedures relating to the marketing and selling of my property, which turned the experience from overwhelming to a comfortable journey. I can highly recommend Karen, Chris and Rebecca as a team who will do everything they possibly can to assist you in selling your home.Sue
Chris assisted us in the marketing and selling our home in Papakura recently. He provided his full commitment to the selling process and ably dealt with any issues along the way.Iain Hall
"I found Chris to be very knowledgeable in the area and was always very quick to respond to any questions. I would certainly have no hesitation in contacting Chris again on either a sale or purchase in the area and would definitely recommend his services to friends"Adele
"Chris many thanks for your friendly professional service in selling our house and for going that extra mile when the situation became difficult"Peter and Tina
"We found Chris easy and efficient to contact, and if we left a message he rang back quickly . He was professional and attentive to our questions. Chris immediately showed us other properties on an extremely bad weather day - very wet and miserable but had no hesitation in offering to show us these properties. He was absolutely brilliant, clear in what was needed during the sale and purchase agreement and kept us informed. Chris was efficient, answered all our questions, nothing was too much trouble so in comparison to other agents he was first rate."Gordon Munce
"Chris went well and above our expectations during the period our property was on the market. We were out of the country and several unexpected issues arose which Chris attended to personally, although they were by no means within his role. We were extremely grateful for his care and attention. Added to that, we had our first open home on a Sunday, and the property sold the next day! What more could you ask for!"Paul and Pam Mawhinney
"As my property sold with 48 hours of going on the market, Chris did a great job of all aspects of marketing and selling my property. I cannot fault anything"Ngairie Smith
"Great person to deal with.no pressure to sell until we got the right deal. would not hesitate to recommend him as an agent"Glenn Pryor
"Chris has made our experience of selling our house better than we could ever have imagined. His calm demeanour is just what you need when dealing with the stress of buying and selling property. Chris got us the price we wanted without a single open home! From there it was smooth sailing all the way through to settlement and he has been there to help and guide us through the process, every step of the way.
"Having worked in the real estate Industry for close to 15 years I was aware how important it was to select the right agent. My wife and I visited all available open homes in the area, where we were considering selling, over two full weekends. Collecting information on signage, presentation (printed and personal) follow up calls, visibility on the internet, newsletters and many other reference points. One person stood out from among many agents. Even though I am a loyal guy toward the brand I worked for, I needed to make a decision for our trust and what was best right now and the personality I could work with and trust.
We are glad to have chosen Chris because from the appraisal of the property, right to signing the dotted line shortly after listing, this proactive personable, knowledgeable and yes professional agent did not miss a beat.
Outstanding communication skills assertive yet not pushy, well versed with industry standards and sensitive to our personal circumstances.
Well done Chris. I truly wish you well and as I mentioned before BRAND is important, but a good man who can find."
"I found Chris's plumbing background very useful when making repairs to the property. His practical knowledge was also useful when discussing the refurbishment of the house. Chris willingly undertook extra tasks that made our life easier due to living in another city. Chris's motivation when we sold both houses through him was to get the job done to our satisfaction. I would definitely use Chris again when/if we decide to sell our other rentals"Paul and Pam Mawhinney
"I believe in giving credit where credit is due.
Chris has earned my confidence by his actions during the course of our association. From returning calls promptly to displaying a good work ethic, plus a saviness in all matters relating to the sale of a property, he has demonstrated that he is an adept facilitator, and has proven the ability to be tough with purchasers, to achieve the best price. I would have him to represent my interests again."
