  • Nick Menzies

    Nick Menzies

    Property Consultant

    When it comes to listing, selling and effective marketing campaigns, Nick was born for his job as a property consultant at Harcourts Hills Living! Having been a DJ, sound engineer and Promo Manager on a successful radio program in his native New Zealand (no.1 in the ratings, in fact!), and number one in sales at Wilson’s Real Estate over there, Nick came to us with some impressive credentials. Nick is passionate and energetic without being overbearing. He loves clients, and they love him! They love him even more when he devises and implements a marketing campaign that suits their needs and gets the best possible result. This recommendation from one of his devoted clients says it all: “We listed our home with Nick and were very impressed with his professionalism, marketing and ability to negotiate a fantastic price and terms (which we accepted) after just one open home. We subsequently sold another two homes with him and he was also successful in achieving a top result for my sister’s property with five offers presented in one weekend. Therefore it is without hesitation that I recommend Nick Menzies. He is the BEST.” Kelly Kett We endorse Kelly’s view: “Nick is the consummate team man: great to have around in good times or bad, positive, determined and devoted both to people and results. A bloke who loves movies and going to footy matches, he’s as easy-going as we all like a person to be, but works like a Trojan when it matters. When you need him, he’s there.”

Success at achieving life-changing results for his clients; fantastic customer focus; persistent, hard work on behalf of his vendors, buyers and investors.
