With an unmatched enthusiasm to see clients celebrate their successful sales, it’s no wonder Dave has been awarded Chairman’s Elite, being recognised within the top 1% most successful real estate agents nationwide at Ray White. 

Dave works as a team with his wife Dominique and together they are able to provide superior service for no additional cost.

Some of the stand out qualities that have contributed towards their success have been their approachable manner and ability to adapt and problem solve with efficiency.  

“Communication is key! I have always been of the belief that where communication ends imagination begins, you can save much anxiety and stress by simply keeping your clients informed through the whole transaction process” says Dave.

Entrusting your most important asset to someone is a decision that is poured over with great detail and careful consideration, which is why it is reassuring to know with Dave and Dominique you not only have professional Chairmans Elite real estate agents, but it is also coupled with the wider network and reputation of the trusted Ray White team.

Straight forward, effective campaign in a very tough market After selling our first property with Dave 6 years ago we always knew we’d sell with him again when the time came. As we were selling in a tough Auckland market, which had switched to more of a buyer’s market, Dave was very clear about expectations and strategies he would use to give us the best chance of selling. As we’d already committed to moving in and had to sell it was more a question of how quick would it sell and for how much. We had a short but very effective campaign. In a market where lots of open homes were quiet we had multiple groups through every weekend with several repeats. Every week when we’d catch up with Dave and Nicky there would be new updates from potential buyers and what I appreciated was the excellent feedback details coming through each week. I also get the impression Dave tailors his approach to every vendor. I didn’t want to be inundated with constant comparisons and analysis from other priorities as ultimately the market was going to dictate it for us. Dave was excellent at giving us the updates and key information we needed to know without being overwhelming. I’ve always been terrified of auctions but the key takeaway for us and measure of success was that we went to auction night with multiple registered bidders who came prepared to buy and ultimately we sold our beloved home under the hammer with some competitive bidding which, in this current market, definitely exceeded my expectations. I cannot recommend Dave and his team enough. If I was ever buying or selling in the area again there’s no question about who I’d be talking to. I wouldn’t look eisewhere.

Easiest Experience Ever. What can I say about Dave and Courtney? They are really good at what they do, this is not a job to them, it's a calling. They genuinely care about everyone, and what happens to each property. It was an absolute pleasure to work with them. Great communication, prompt and also breaking everything down for us so we could understand. They jumped through hoops (and on the trampoline!), they flexed when needed, all in all the process felt far too easy.

Good advice on market strategy. Dave and Silvan were great to deal with. We appreciated their insights and advice on how to get a result in what a market that faced with a flood of new properties and buyers with constrained financing. We got a preauction offer and sold at auction for 70k higher, so were pleased with the result!

From start to finish the service and the experience with Dave and Silvan was outstanding! Any barrier they came up against, they smashed through them and got the job done. The marketing campaign gave the house the best opportunity to sell, the photos, videos, social media, website presence was the best in market. Daves contacts, presence and knowledge of the east Auckland was a massive advantage. I would never use another Real Estate agent again when selling, the whole team at Team Mccartney were the best!
