The award-winning team at Ray White Takanini have added another arrow to their mighty quiver, with top-performing salesperson, Greig Kirby. With over 23 years of experience, you can confidently call Greig an authority. With over $200 million in sales, you could also call him your property’s best asset.
Starting out in the insurance industry, Greig quickly adopted the principles of sales, finance, communication and customer service, before moving into his chosen vocation. Greig has sold countless residential, rural and commercial properties, but notably specialised in residential investment property. His proficiency earned him the nickname of “The Flat Specialist,” and a portfolio brimming with apartments and units from Whanganui to Kaitaia.
Possessing an excellent reputation in his own right, Greig now works in partnership with his wife, Leonie, as one-half of a highly-regarded sales team. Their results speak volumes, with a remarkable 75% of their business coming directly from past clients and referrals.
Consequently, Greig has amassed an extensive database permitting him to make connections between buyers and vendors, often before your property has time to reach the market. Joining forces with Leonie a decade ago, that database multiplied; a testament to their ability for building productive long-term relationships and securing prime outcomes for their clients.
Few people remain in one career so long without genuine passion; Greig agrees, commenting: “I’m still here because I truly enjoy it, I love dealing with people.’ Citing a strong work ethic and unrelenting consistency as strong suits, Greig and Leonie also share the following philosophy: “We refuse to compromise on the truth.”
Not slowing down in the least, Greig recently extended his credibility, completing a National Diploma in Real Estate in 2016. As a father of two and grandfather of seven, the professional qualification is a source of personal pride, as a role model to the next generation. A keen hunter, Greig makes time at least once a year to ‘go bush,’ helicoptering into remote parts of the country for up to a week at a time.
