Richard Thode joined Black Group’s Ray White Epsom office as a licensed salesperson in early 2019 but he is by no means a newcomer to the buying and selling of real estate – particularly in Central Auckland.

Richard’s unique set of relevant skills equip him with a distinct competitive advantage in the real estate business. His experience and drive to succeed has resulted in his achieving an unprecedented #1 salesperson award for the Epsom office in the April to June quarter for 2019. Richard transacted sales in 2019 of over 14 properties in 6 months in a tightening market with the ink barely dry on his licence. With changing real estate trends, it’s more important than ever before to trust your property sale to a mature agent with a depth of experience, a positive attitude, sound professionalism and a compelling track record – Richard brings all those qualities and more to the table.  Some of his key strengths are:

  • Property market experience -  commercial and residential including high end developments throughout Auckland

  • Building and construction experience
  • Entrepreneurial and driven with proven commercial acumen
  • Articulate, communicative relationship-builder
  • A strong negotiator with natural selling skills
  • A trusted professional focussed wholly on achieving the desired result for all parties

Richard is well-connected with significant networks and trusted relationships across Auckland and further afield.  His ability to negotiate the best possible price for his vendors is in large part due to his rare wealth of knowledge in the property industry.  Richard is the new breed of real estate agent demonstrating fresh and innovative ideas, outside-the-box marketing smarts and a depth of knowledge seldom found in the industry. His skills are critical if you want your home to stand out from the crowd.  Because not all agents are created equal, act now and engage someone who honours the task he has been given and understands your home from the ground up – CALL RICHARD THODE TODAY!
