Selection overview

Welcome to the latest edition of Bayleys Canterbury’s Selection magazine, reflecting what has been a season of celebrations for the Bayleys Canterbury real estate agency brand and its people over the past month both on an agency basis, and within the country’s real estate sector as a whole.


I’d like to proudly take this opportunity to share our successes with you, the people of Canterbury, who made our successes achievable by trusting us to work with you and your real estate asset buying or selling decisions.

Representing the pinnacle of our industry, at the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand’s Awards for Excellence held in Auckland, Bayleys Canterbury won two categories:

  • Overall Residential Salesperson of the Year (Highest Sales Volume) – Chris Jones
  • Rural Salesperson of the Year Rising Star – Adam Whitelock.

Our sister operation in Central Otago, Bayleys Wānaka, also won an additional two categories:

  • Small Residential Office of the Year (Highest Sales Volume)
  • Small Residential Office of the Year.

On a national basis, the Bayleys group picked up 33% of the total REINZ Excellence Awards on the night.

Meanwhile, within the Bayleys Real Estate agency network of offices and franchises nationwide, Bayleys Canterbury and Bayleys Wānaka, along with their truly special salespeople and property services personnel, picked up a number of awards just a few nights earlier, including:

  • National Award for Growth (Large Franchise) – Bayleys Canterbury
  • ‘Bayleys Way’ (Franchise) – Bayleys Canterbury
  • Overall National Salesperson of the Year – Chris Jones
  • Overall National Rural Salesperson the Year – Chris Jones
  • Overall National Commercial Salesperson of the Year – Nick O’Styke
  • Individual Top Auction Award – Adam Heazlewood
  • National Effective Business Unit (Highest Gross Commission) – Team Chris Jones
  • Most Completed Deals (Large Franchise) – Chris Jones
  • National Effective Business Unit of the Year (High Performance) – Team Sharon Donnelly
  • Most Completed Deals (Small Franchise) – Sharon Donnelly
  • Professional Services Award – Jazlyn Etches, Bayleys Property Services
  • Professional Services Award – Nicola Lagan, Bayleys Valuations.

These awards reflect many hours of hard work by our salespeople and their administrative support staff. But the results are only achievable with the incredible support of our customers - the people across Canterbury who we have worked with to deliver thousands of successful sales results for over not only the past year, but the decades before that.

This long-standing commitment to the province has seen Bayleys Canterbury and its customers thrive in all sectors of the property market – residential, commercial & industrial, rural and lifestyle. It’s all about building deep and trusted relationships built on delivering guidance…and ultimately results.

Underpinning our commitment to the real estate sector in province, Bayleys Canterbury has an extensive network of offices across Canterbury.

If you are thinking of coming to the market this spring, auctions are at the core of Bayleys Canterbury’s ethos - presenting a clear timeline to the market and encourage ‘urgency’ amongst those in the buyer pool. Auctions focus on achieving an unconditional offer that meets our client’s terms. Our results show auction campaigns remain 121% more likely to have unconditionally sold after 30 days on the market and 43% more likely to have unconditionally sold after 90 days on the market.

With all this in mind, as ever, should any of the properties in this edition of Selection magazine attract your attention and tempt you into taking the next step on your property ownership path, feel free to contact the multi award-winning Bayleys Canterbury team for a chat.

We look forward to hearing from you.
