Grant and Clare are avid followers of sport in all forms and this is hardly unexpected bearing in mind that Grant represented Wellington in both Cricket and Rugby; he was a junior All Black and played both cricket and rugby in England and France at a high level in the 1980’s. His hands on sporting involvement these days are confined to coaching at school boy, college and club level. In this capacity, Grant encourages and supports his own family members and also promotes to the young people under his influence, the principals of team participation and fair play. Grant and Clare share the view that competing in a team environment is equally as important in the business world and attribute much of their business success to the team ethos at Tommy’s where any property listed for sale with them has the full support of the entire sales team.
There are many advantages of entrusting your real estate business to Grant and Clare; a proven partnership.

What My Clients Say
Grant and Clare sold our family home of some 54 years. They were incredibly respectful of my elderly mother – taking her age and needs into careful consideration. From my perspective, I was truly impressed with the quality of the marketing (focused advertising copy, top quality photos, relevant positioning of the property), the great value they offered in terms of their sales commission and most importantly, the quality of service. I was kept fully informed at all stages of the process, Clare and Grant always got back to me promptly and were unfailingly pleasant to deal with. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Clare and Grant – they are dynamic, dedicated, savy and truly client service focused. I have bought and sold numerous properties – this was a truly enjoyable experience.
Grant and Clare have recently sold two properties for us in Wellington. The first was our rental property, a townhouse in Hataitai. We were extremely pleased when we received a good offer for it after only three weeks on the market, as the unit next door had recently been taken off the market unsold after six months with another company. The second property was our home in Island Bay. Clare assisted us through a maintenance problem with the property and we were pleased to receive two good offers. Throughout the sale of both properties Clare and Grant worked tirelessly for us. They kept track of all prospective purchasers and followed up on all enquiries. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Clare and Grant to other prospective vendors or purchasers.
Simply put, Grant and Clare made the process of selling our house simple and painless. We were provided with a range of options, some great guidance on the pros and cons of each and any questions we had were answered. Once underway, communication was great and we were kept informed of the process all the way along. A sense of urgency was created which assisted in getting a buyer who loved the house and we got what we thought it was worth. Grant and Clare are a great team and their respective strengths meant we had all the bases covered. Thanks and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to prospective sellers.
