Paula and Simon Standeven are an experienced husband and wife real estate sales team dedicated to achieving success for their clients. Demonstrating an exceptional work ethic and unrivalled professionalism, the team consistently produces outstanding results having received the Ray White Prier Real Estate 'Number One Sales Award' for four years running from 2017-2021.

Having both grown up in the bays area, we are passionate about this part of the city as an exceptional place to settle and enjoy the fantastic lifestyle on offer. We believe this connection with the location shines through in our sales knowledge and enthusiasm for clients' properties and, of course, we choose to live and raise our own family in the area too.

We have worked hard to achieve and sustain a significant market share and, with one of the highest clearance rates in the group, have achieved a superior level of sales experience and expertise; particularly in the coastal communities. With near to 400 properties sold post-earthquake and 15 years' experience in the industry, our clients can rest assured we are there to guide them through what is one of the most significant transactions of their lifetime.

Providing essential backup is our superb support team of Anna Burgess (Personal Assistant) and Sam Ansell (Sales Support) who are on hand to ensure that all aspects of the sale process are carefully planned and executed, giving our clients peace of mind during a busy time. We believe that maintaining excellent communication is critical, so we maintain regular touchpoints and provide detailed reporting, making sure clients are never left wondering what’s happening with their home.

We aim to achieve a competitive advantage over other properties in the market by delivering dynamic marketing programmes and pitching our properties with skill. Our approach, backed by expertise and experience, is designed to attract as much traffic and as many potential purchasers to view and engage with our clients' home.

What others have to say about the Standevens:

“I have always used the local Ray White office for my home and rental property divestments.  Recently, I engaged Simon and Paula Standeven of Ray White Ferrymead for the auction of my home in Moncks Bay, comprising a large house on a very large, unique section with the challenge of being sold in an ‘as is’ condition.  I found Simon and Paula to be very knowledgeable, professional and attentive in their dealings with myself and prospective purchasers.  In particular, this extended to their Ray White support team and resources.  I firmly believe the team contributed to what was the best outcome achieved for this property, which sold quickly at auction.  I have no hesitation in recommending the team to others.”

“Thank you very much for your help with selling our special showhome! Despite not being our actual home, it was our pride and joy so getting the right price and exposure was very important to us and our business.

We were most impressed with your approach to digital marketing, video and online presence that you achieve through Ray White and other websites. A special thanks to your PA for keeping us in the look with the reports. They were timely and easy to follow.

Jamie and I are most impressed with your professional approach and attention to detail. Unlike many other experiences we had buying or selling, this one tops them all. You have made it a positive and fulfilling process for us.”

"September 2015 If you are selling a property in Christchurch, Paula and Simon are the ultimate dream team. Professional, enthusiastic, pragmatic, knowledgeable and personable are only some of the words that begin to describe them. However, superlatives aside, perhaps the best recommendation I can make is over the past three years I have entrusted them with the sale of not one but four of my properties. Each one different, but each one as effortless as selling a house can be, all due to Paula and Simon’s exceptional skills. Even though I live abroad, I was constantly kept up to date during every stage of the process and had peace of mind that Paula and Simon were working towards achieving the best possible outcome. Every time they achieved remarkable results – a true reflection of their talent and ability especially in such a challenging market. What sets Paula and Simon apart from other agents I have dealt with in the past is their honesty and true dedication to their client’s interests. They are both great at what they do and I have very much enjoyed working with them. In a word – outstanding. "
