Rawdon Christie needs little introduction after his successful career in television, initially with the BBC and then with Television New Zealand.
Rawdon now utilizes the competitive drive and work ethic he displayed on TVNZ’s Breakfast show, to achieve the best possible results for his clients.
His public profile has also helped him acquire an impressive network of contacts. He knows how to utilize the media to reach them, having left television to run his own successful communications and media relations business.
Rawdon now applies the trust and credibility that his media career has earned him to real estate, a career he chose because it allows him to work locally - with the people in his own neighbourhood – while helping them make some of the biggest decisions they will ever make. Many of his clients are also the people who first welcomed him when he arrived from the UK 28 years ago as a young graduate to teach at Kings School, in the heart of Remuera.
Rawdon’s friends, colleagues and clients will tell you that it is his exceptional people skills that set him apart and, whether teaching children, interviewing politicians or guiding a client to find a winning strategy for the sale of their home, it is his relationship-building and listening skills that are key to achieving the best outcomes for all parties.
It’s by taking a genuine interest and care in every client that Rawdon helps them get the very best result when selling their most valuable asset.
He specializes in Remuera because this has been his home for nearly 30 years. He has been a central figure in the community, involved in all five of the local schools his children have attended. His wife, Jo, grew up in Remuera and they have together bought and sold several properties in the neighbourhood.
Rawdon understands Remuera and what makes it such a special place to live. This, together with his media acumen and ability to make genuine connections with buyers, makes him a winning combination to represent you and your property.
"Rawdon Christie recently sold my property in Te Atatu South. I was aware that he had only just joined the real estate profession, but from the outset he demonstrated a depth of knowledge and professionalism that gave me every confidence I had made the right choice.
Rawdon prepared a very comprehensive marketing plan while always keeping in mind my budgetary needs. He then talked through every step of the process and kept me fully-informed and updated at all times. His excellent communication was particularly important because I live 200 kms south of Auckland. This also meant I needed to rely on him to liaise with tradespeople, organise staging and be able to go to the property whenever the need arose.
Rawdon also matched his level of professionalism and commitment with his attitude. He was always friendly, relaxed and thoughtful - nothing was a problem and he went to every level to decrease the stress of selling the house. To top it all off, he managed to find a buyer willing to pay a dream price, and the following settlement was seamless.
I highly recommend Rawdon and thank him for his outstanding work."Janelle McCorquindale
In selling several homes during my life, I have worked with some excellent real estate salespeople. However it has been Rawdon Christie, during the sale of my most recent home, whose help has been outstanding.
Selling your home can be stressful, especially in the final stages, but Rawdon made this process so easy. He is exceptionally professional, and has a warm, friendly manner. He was transparent and fair in all aspects of the sale. He is also creative, with an eye for detail and suggested several improvements to make my home even more attractive than it was already!
So thank you Rawdon. With your expertise, my house sale turned out to be a very pleasant experience.Rose Bridge
Kanta and Rawdon are a great team. They were enthusiastic from our first meeting, quickly seeing the potential available in the property. Their marketing strategy was on target and they set about finding competing buyers for auction day. They delivered in spades and the family couldn’t be happier. A fantastic result for us and a top endorsement for them. Thank you both.
Hope this helps you go further.
