Wayne Espie
Wayne Espie is one of those real estate people you just love to be working with. His real estate skills aside, Wayne’s past qualifications and work/life experience, bring you a real estate professional with undoubted people, marketing and negotiation skills. Wayne honed his unbridled Communication skills in his 25 years as a Health Care Professional. His career as a Physiotherapist saw him establish ground breaking businesses in both Australia & UK before returning to his hometown, Auckland in 2007. Nurturing, caring for and ultimately solving a patient’s pain puzzles were hugely self-rewarding for Wayne. The experience gained in motivating both amateur and professional sportsmen allows Wayne to achieve exceptional results for those he works with. Wayne’s background and caring approach gives him the valued ability to relate to people from every corner of the globe and all walks of life, from Line Worker to Surgeon. His confident and relaxed manner made the transition from Physiotherapist to a highly skilled realtor and public negotiator (Auctioneer) appear almost seamless. Wayne won the coveted title of ‘NZ LJ Hooker Auction Idol’ in both 2014 & 2015 and has recently competed in the 2016 LJ Hooker International Auctioneering Idol competition in Cairns. In 2015 Wayne was voted #1 in Auckland & #2 in NZ by Vendors in the LJ Hooker “rate my agent TV promotion” The character historic properties of Freemans Bay, Ponsonby, Sandringham, Kingsland and Grey Lynn are Wayne’s forte. Rather than rent, he bought and renovated his first similar “historic villa” in Dunedin whilst a student, selling for a handsome profit on the completion of his studies. Having a father who is an ‘old-school’ skilled cabinet-maker and a mother who is a commissioned interior designer whose last two self-built properties have been featured in Trends and NZ House & Garden magazines respectively, Wayne has been brought up with an eye for what makes a property. Wayne has a highly competitive, tenacious attitude, a unique sense of humour and a real ability to “think outside the box”, making him a skilled realtor and Auctioneer you can confidently work with.
