People are the most important thing in the world.

Born in London and raised in Germany, Raz holds a degree in business law and has worked as a business consultant and business and law teacher for over 20 years. Before arriving in New Zealand in 2009, Raz owned and operated several businesses overseas and a German restaurant in Nelson.

Over the years he has learned that trust and a personal touch are just as important as hard skills, and honesty and integrity are still the basis for a sustainable and successful business. He has developed excellent communication skills which enables him to carefully listen and clearly understand clients' needs.

A genuine desire to help people has developed his customer service and people skills, and his law degree along with a lifelong interest in learning and teaching led him to a position as a Commercial Law and Business Management Lecturer at NMIT.

With an analytical mind and a high technical affinity, he constantly improves his systems and processes to be more effective and efficient for his clients.

Former customers commend his responsiveness, friendly and humorous nature, and calm but firm negotiation skills.

In his free time, Raz serves as a voluntary business mentor for the Nelson Tasman Business Trust. Whenever possible he enjoys the nature, great food and wine of our region.

"Raz is highly professional, honest, personable and has excellent communication skills. He gave useful information and kept me up to date with every aspect to do with the sale and I felt very comfortable and confident in all the decisions we made together along the way. His gave me excellent advice on the best way to present the property and I was astounded by the unexpected high price that was reached. I unreservedly recommend Raz and Ray White to any future vendors."
