With twenty-five years in hospitality management under his belt, Steve Colthart is well equipped for a career in real estate. From running a boutique hotel, delivering quality events and looking after VVIP’s to counselling customers and employees alike, Steve has done it all. This has given him a range of skills which translate incredibly well to property including organisational, customer service and working successfully with a wide range of people. Hospitality is also a fast-paced, ever-changing environment, which means when it comes to real estate Steve knows how to quickly pivot to meet the market, achieving great outcomes for his clients as a result.
Steve grew up around real estate – his mother forged an impressive career in residential sales. This coupled with having bought and sold personal family homes in Auckland since 2007 means Steve well understands how the properties we live in affect our overall wellbeing. Today he utilises this knowledge to make thoughtful suggestions to improve a property’s saleability when working with his clients. Through Steve’s diverse, people-orientated background, he is well-equipped to make the process of buying and selling homes stress-free and enjoyable for all involved.
Outside of work Steve can be found reading, playing snooker, backgammon, squash and tennis, swimming or going on a daily walk with Buddy the Border Terrier.
Steve is proud to represent Bayleys as he knows like no other that customer feedback means everything. Throughout his hospitality career he consistently heard comments over the counter that Bayleys was the best, which fits in well with his ethos of always exceeding expectations.
Steve specialises in Westmere, West Lynn, Ponsonby, Herne Bay and St Mary’s Bay. For a real estate professional whose strength lies in delivering the best customer experience combined with an honest and diligent work ethic, contact Steve today.
We listed our apartment with Steve and realised a fantastic result in a short period of time. Steve left no stone unturned in preparing and marketing the apartment. We appreciated the fact he was exceptionally active in getting our result with regular and informative updates on the general market and his work through his extensive personal network following up first and second level connections. Ultimately Steve achieved a result others couldn’t and left both us and our proud purchaser with smiles. Actions rather than words made the difference, and we can’t recommend Steve highly enough.
I have recently sold my apartment through Bayleys. Steve Colthart was one of the agents working on the sale. I found Steve to be totally professional in my dealings with him. Steve was always punctual, well prepared and very proactive in finding a buyer for my property.
I would have no hesitation in dealing with Steve again.
