“At some point if you’re very lucky your skills and talents come together in the right place at the right time” – Wayne
Being the CEO and leader of the team at Ray White Mission Bay is for Wayne the right place and the right time.
His base skills – management, discipline, providing training, business acumen, sales, negotiation, auctioneering, academic knowledge and practical application are only the platform for the service he provides today to his team and their clients.
Wayne clearly sees his role as a servient leader. Bundling his skills together, Wayne’s greatest growth has been in the last few years as a leader who serves and grows his team members. Stepping up from management to leadership has been his greatest business achievement to date.
Wayne commits to a number of overseas training sessions each year all designed to improve his own leadership skills and hence improve his value to his team.
In the last three years Ray White Mission Bay has doubled in size. Current projections and tracking have it on target to double again in the next two years.
With clear strategies for the growth and development of each and every salesperson, the business is clearly experiencing exponential growth.
Along with growing the business, Wayne has been refining his natural talent as an auctioneer. In 2014 he was recognised as Ray White New Zealand’s Auctioneer of the year. After three years it’s a title yet to be relinquished.
As an auctioneer Wayne will deliver every last dollar to the maximise the value of client property. Wayne calls approximately 400 auctions each year, negotiating and closing around $20,000,000 in sales every week.
With a great team at work and a full family (five girls) Wayne is more energised and enthusiastic about real estate and the potential in the people he works and lives with than ever.
