“Above & Beyond”
In January of 2019, the real estate market of New Zealand took its first real dive in 10 years, and a 21 year old Stephen Graves began his first day in the world of real estate.
Real Estate Career
After his first successful year in the industry, Stephen has developed each aspect of his business in order to provide both better services and experiences for any clients, buying or selling. With state of the art design-work, professional reports and a strong business structure, Stephen meets and exceeds the expectations of any client wanting to enter the real estate market.
Stephen’s signature approach to the industry ensures customers can truly enjoy the thrill of buying and selling real estate. He uses direct and out-of-the-box questions to help define what is most important, address any concerns and achieve an outstanding result.
Maintaining a diverse knowledge of any developments in his area is important to Stephen. This includes large projects such as the NX2 Motorway, Matakana link-road, Warkworth expansion plan and other minor developments affecting the marketplace both now and in the future.
Stephen aims to create a region-wide brand of superior standards and incredible results, eventually managing his own team and diversifying his business. How will he achieve this? By being consistently outstanding, exceeding expectations, and working harder than anybody else in the industry.
Stephen is an active supporter of the Starship children’s hospital, a member of the Warkworth Rotary club and tries to take part in as many local events as he can.
Stephen was born in Kilkenny, Ireland and graduated college in 2014. Since then he has continued his education with a level 4 Certificate in Personal Financing and Money Management and plans to do much more in his spare time.
Stephen Graves recently sold our rental home. He explained the processes thoroughly, communicated well, he adapted to the market and advised us every step of the way. Stephen worked tirelessly until the property was ultimately sold. The final count of offers was eight on the table!
We highly recommend Stephen to market your property. His enthusiasm and dedication will ensure he will continue to excel in his chosen industry.Anna & David Schurink
Professional, enthusiastic and an unmatched work ethic. Buying through Stephen was the best choice we could have made. Stephen was candid, communicated regularly, explained the processes simply and worked to our needs the whole way through.
We would gladly work with Stephen again, and look forward to seeing him rise to the local #1.
Kind regards and many thanksRuth & Phil
Stephen. We just wanted to thank you for the support and encouragement you freely gave us during the sale. We were particularly impressed by your no-pressure approach but at the same time guiding us professionally and with respect. We liked the way you got to know us as a family and understood our concerns and reasoning. Nothing seemed too much of a problem for you as a new agent, and we felt privileged to be a part of your learning curve. You would openly admit when you didn't know something but would follow up and ensure you researched it thoroughly enough before keeping us well informed in a timely manner.
We wish you a very long and successful career.
Thinking of selling your property? So was I when I got in touch with Barfoot & Thompson Warkworth. Everyone wants a good yet fair deal and Stephen Graves and Tom Donaldson certainly deliver.
They listened to me as their client and kept me informed of their plans and progress as well as developments in the marketplace. Clients and buyers alike were treated with courtesy and consideration. I highly recommend Stephen Graves and Tom Donaldson who make that extra effort in their profession.
