It is not only New Zealand's second largest city, it is Arizto's second home, and the location of one the best teams in the country's fastest growing real estate company.Read more
It was a glittering occasion up above the city's skyline at the roof top bar of the 5-star SO/Auckland Hotel on November 29th for Arizto's fifth annual Christmas gathering.
Over 100 agents and staff members from around the country made the trip to the city of sails to celebrate another challenging but rewarding year in real estate.
With nearly 200 agents now on board with one of the fastest growing companies in the industry, Arizto continues to experience rapid advancement in market share across multiple regions, with some of the best being recognised in Auckland.
You can always bet on red 'n black, as the team in Canterbury had an outstanding year led once again by the top national salesperson in Anna James.
Anna topped her 2022 effort with 26 per cent more settlements in this awards season, followed both regionally and nationally by Kate Lamont.
The stronghold in the Bay of Plenty market continues to grow, led by the husband and wife team of Wayne and Veena Hemingway who finished third overall for sales on the national scene.
Of the 'home town' group in Auckland, top salesperson was Pip Wells, followed by the mother and daughter team of Rawinia Matthews and Te Rere Cleveland.
Just behind Auckland on the sales chart was the ever-growing Manawatu/Whanganui region, led once again by Rochelle Burton, fourth overall nationally, followed in the region this year by fellow Whanganui agent Penny Little.
The other major region for the company is the Waikato, with the top salesperson being Jit Singh.
Currently, Arizto's other seven regions are steadily growing in agent numbers, and so for the moment they have their own 'Rest of the Country' category.
The clear standout and fifth overall nationally was Gisborne's Mandy Campbell, followed in this section by Southland's Aniel Chandra.
It was only right that the Rising Star award for 2023 was Canterbury's Jaggy Bhupal, who stood out despite the company heavyweights in his region with the third most sales.
The company also acknowledged the great success of Rotorua's Brooke Wood, tied for second in the Bay of Plenty for sales, who secured a new company record for largest sale with a whopping $3.675m.
The Business Development Manager's (BDM) prize went to Kimberley Rosenbrock, while no agent can succeed with the efforts of the hard-working team behind the scenes, as the Employee of the Year award deservedly went to office manager Shabnam Nisha.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
