Mark Hamilton is Managing Director of Tommy’s Real Estate – the iconic Wellington business formed by Tommy Heptinstall and David Platt May 1999 and a company that from small beginnings is now firmly established as a leader in Wellington City residential real estate sales.
Tommy’s Real Estate Ltd holds a significant market share in Wellington City and suburbs and has also established franchised offices in Lower and Upper Hutt, Tawa, Paremata and on the Kapiti Coast.
Before joining Tommy’s, Mark worked as a global commodities trader for the New Zealand Dairy Board and various Northern Hemisphere trading houses. He also worked in funds investment and spent a number of years as a fly fishing guide and ski instructor in New Zealand and offshore.
Enthusiastic, friendly, adaptable, commercially aware, and self-motivated with well-developed communication skills, Mark thrives under pressure and takes a highly ‘hands on’ approach to problem solving. He has a keen sense of humour, an optimistic outlook and enjoys new challenges. His particular area of interest is the investment property market.
Mark’s role is now more in the support and management of the Tommy’s sales team and in the administrative side of the Tommy’s business as the company has evolved and grown. Mark works in an open working environment with the sales team offering support, advice and encouragement to them and their clients.
A committed and energetic father of three boys, family life is both busy and rewarding. His leisure interests revolve around fly-fishing, golf and skiing. Fly-fishing actually runs in the family – Mark is also a partner in the family fly-fishing business.
Getting the best result starts with choosing the right team.
What My Clients Say
“We were really impressed with the way you marketed my mother’s home to show its full potential. In all our dealings with you, we found your outgoing personality really refreshing; you were always considerate and mindful of our needs and available 24 hours to answer any queries or worries that Mum had. Throughout the entire time we felt you were more than professional in your approach to everything, which gave us complete confidence in your ability to sell this home. Your caring and considerate way in which you made Mum feel less stressed and more at ease with this big transition was just the icing on the cake.”
“I had an idea of what I was looking for and Mark was able to put options in front of me that I could consider without having to physically visit the property. The numbers provided were comprehensive and accurate. I selected several to view and then made my decision. Throughout this process Mark gave advice without pressure and listened to what I had to say. He was very helpful without being the pushy salesman, and I appreciate that from him. I also found him to be friendly and approachable with a great sense of humour. I will be asking Mark to help source my next investment property and have since recommended him to several people I know.”
“To find, within a week, that I had unconditionally sold my property at the very top end of your range, has left me almost breathless with delight, surprise, relief and very impressed. What has impressed me each step of the way? Your thoroughness, accuracy with details, care for me as a somewhat anxious client, the way you listened to my concerns, your humour and the way you carried the whole thing so ‘lightly’. The whole process has been highly professional and made as easy as possible.”
