Tommy Heptinstall and David Platt launched Tommy's in May 1999.
They’d worked in the Wellington real estate market for years, so knew the industry’s strengths – and weaknesses.
They wanted an agency with a difference – the best and kindest real estate agency in New Zealand, an agency that broke the mould. A company where the culture was based on ethics and values, one that attracted the best listings – and the best people. A real estate agency committed to providing the best service for buyers and vendors, getting clients the best price and making the process as stress-free as possible.
Tommy and David are committed to running an ethical business, based on their three key principles: values, values and values. They achieve this by taking an interest in people, looking after their clients by providing experienced advice and guidance, and spending every working minute trying to get things right.
Tommy and David knew it could be done.
And that’s the way it’s operated since Tommy’s first opened for business. And that’s why, in only over fifteen years of operation, Tommy’s Real Estate has become one of Wellington’s leading real estate agencies.
Tommy Heptinstall is well-known in Wellington – the boy from Titahi Bay, the born salesman, and now the high-profile businessman who plays an active role in the Wellington community. Tommy’s ebullient personality and business skills are under-pinned by David Platt’s commonsense and his organisational and negotiating abilities.
