I believe that the foundation of my strong working relationship with my clients lies in my ethics, honesty and integrity. My completion of a B.Com from Delhi University and a Post Graduate Diploma in Business majoring in Operations Management from Unitec in Auckland gave me the skills I need to market your property successfully. When needed, you can count on my keen negotiating skills to work on your behalf.
Prior to real estate, I worked for five years at a duty free company at Auckland Airport. This was a job where you really get to know people. While there, for two years in a row, I was the recipient of an Auckland Airport Retail Excellence Award. The reward recognises outstanding team players, exceptional performance and great customer service and one that I was very proud to receive. I eventually moved on and ran my own food business for two years which I loved.
My latest qualification, also from Unitec , is my NZ Certificate in real estate!
Since the day I landed in New Zealand I have been living on the Shore and I just love it. It’s beautiful, safe and once you drive over the Harbour Bridge, it’s less hectic than the other side. I have developed a great knowledge of the area. Providing expertise and knowledge to help clients navigate the complex buying and selling process, positions them for success.
I’m quite sporty and enjoy playing cricket and table-tennis and I love going for outdoor adventures. A particular interest of mine is the science of spirituality. I am involved with a non-profit organisation that is dedicated to providing a forum where people can learn meditation for its benefits of physical, mental and emotional health, spiritual growth and finding one’s purpose in life.
In addition to English I speak Hindi and Punjabi. I have a good sense of humour and I’m slightly flattered by the fact that quite a lot of people tell me I have a charming personality.
If you are looking for a real estate salesperson who is honest, hardworking, committed and value-orientated, I can help. Make a start. Give me a call and find out how I can help you achieve your property goals.
I look forward to meeting you.
“Punish Budhiraja helped Mai and I purchase a lovely house in Weymouth. He was instrumental in us being successful at auction, a process I was unfamiliar with. His expertise and professionalism was more than welcome. He answered all my questions with clear and concise explanations and great advice. Punish kept us well informed all the way through to settlement day. I would highly recommend him to anyone purchasing property in the overheated Auckland market. I would definitely use him again if necessary.”Bill Fitzgerald & Mai Trinh - Happy, happy Homeowners
Punish was very professional, helpful, very knowledgeable and so friendly. Since we were first home buyers, his guidance was superb from beginning to the end and he always went extra mile for us on every step of our buying journey. He was very approachable and was always reachable regardless of day and time.
The property price was in our desirable range as well. His great communication skills made the whole process very easy and smooth. I would very highly recommend Punish to my family and friends.Arishma & Avi
"Our experience with Punish has been stellar! As we were looking for a specific type of property it took a while to find and we had a few false starts with unsuccessful auctions. Over this time Punish was great to deal with, highly professional yet personable. His tenacity meant he didn’t give up and kept proactively looking for properties for us, going out of his way to get us viewings quickly, and ultimately finding a great one in our price range.
He provided excellent advice throughout the buying process and was very clear at explaining and answering any questions I had. I would highly recommend Punish to friends and family and will definitely use his services again."Ed & Shannon
I am very impressed with the level of professional service I received from Punish and David from Takapuna Branch.Pinakin Sangadiya - Vendor Gulf Harbour
"The experience with this young lad was professional. He found us a house at the price we were intending to pay, and was a very punctual and organised guy. Would definitely recommend him to friends and family for his very approachable personality."
It is my immense pleasure to provide feedback for Punish Budhiraja. We are proud new owners of a new house and Punish played a vital role in getting this deal done. He is very helpful in coordinating with vendors and property managers to communicate our points or requests through. It is our first home and a lot of things, processes were new for us. Punish listened to us carefully and provided all possible answers and solutions to our queries. He also gave us some good home improvement ideas which I would consider a really good customer service trait. I definitely recommend him to the new home buyers/sellers.
I sold one of my properties with Punish as my salesperson. I would like to give feedback for his services.
Punish is a very hardworking, pleasant and honest salesperson. He is not pushy and understands what the buyer and/or seller is actually after very cleverly. Punish was very patient and gave us good guidance even though I was the vendor. He was always available to discuss matters and goes the extra mile with patience and a smile.
He is young and very approachable. I wish him all the very best for his career in real estate.
Thanks and regardsVikrant
“I would just like to appraise you about how incredible Punish has been as my buying salesperson! He has been extremely sharp, flexible and agile with understanding, showing and recommending new properties that suit us instantly as soon as he comes across them which is really appreciated. He has been very prompt regarding the queries raised by us during the process. We are really impressed by Punish and we hope you let him know! Thanks and regards,Saumil Shah
Just wanted to pass on some feedback on Punish Budhiraja. Initially we were hesitant on having an salesperson to show us properties as we thought, what would salespeople would do differently than we are already doing. Well, I was wrong and Punish and proved otherwise.
To start with:
1) He was punctual and shortlisted properties based on our criteria.
2) Followed auctions closely and came back to us if there were any passed in.
3) Always pro-active and informative about the properties.
4) Timely communication and getting things done at a fast pace, as few auctions I've attended have to get variations in the last couple of hours.
5) Most importantly he was encouraging, as at one point we almost gave up and thought of moving to a rented place. The list goes on.
In the end, I'm sad that it didn't work out but it was a great experience working with him and will look forward to working with Barfoot & Thompson in the future.
Also, a special mention for David Holton for his expertise on a few of the very complex Auckland council aspects.
