Billy Russell - Ray White
One of the most common questions when selecting a Real Estate agent is “Why You?” Here is a quick overview of my background and success in real estate so far.
I was born in Mount Maunganui and grew up in the Arataki area so I know Mount Maunganui and Papamoa like the back of my hand. Post school I decided to chase my dreams and was given a contract to play professional rugby in Scotland where I lived for six years. While there, I picked up a career in sales working as the Sales Manager for most of the major sports organisations in the North of Scotland, Adidas, Nike, Canterbury just to name a few.
It was here I picked up many skills in negotiation and learnt that excellent customer service is one of the best traits anyone can have. If a purchaser or vendor is fully informed, they will be happy, and a happy customer is always a good customer.
When deciding to return to the sunny Mount, I chose real estate as this is an area I thought would most benefit my skill set and being from here, I knew my local connections would be an asset. Being still quite young and now approaching 7 years in the industry and gaining a lot of knowledge and awards along the way, I am thriving and enjoying the journey and meeting new people. If you’re looking at selling or buying your home, I am here to help make that journey as stress free as possible and most importantly looking to get you the best possible price in the shortest amount of time.
