Recently I surpassed the $130 Million dollar sales mark and since 2013 have been consistently recognised in the top 20 Sales people within the Harcourts Wellington Region. My clients tell me it is my professionalism and willingness to serve them that are my strongest characteristics. Former clients have stated that my personal service qualities stand out above the rest - which is something I am very proud of. Real Estate transactions are major decisions that must be handled with care and as a consultant, I know that the process of selling a property needs to be done smoothly and efficiently with a minimum of stress to my clients. I place high importance on making you feel comfortable and trusting me when I am dealing with your largest asset and you can be assured that I will commit my energy, integrity and business accuracy to achieve the best results for you.

"Zay Griffith worked very hard to sell our property over a period of several months. Knowing that it wouldn’t be easy to sell she went into the task with enthusiasm and the resolve to see it through to the end. We appreciated the regular contact from Zay and the efficient way she followed up people from the open homes and other viewings, usually in the same day. She was the only agent who brought anyone through our house outside of the open home days. Zay always had ideas to try and yet listened to us and respected what we wanted, at no time pushing us or overstepping the mark. She was keen to learn about our property and used this information effectively when showing people around. When we decided that we needed to put a new roof on our house Zay was extremely helpful in finding and chasing up roofers. We acknowledge this going beyond the call of duty to assist us and this has ultimately led to our sale. Although the house eventually sold while Zay was away, her daughter, Steph (together making up Team Zay) was very capable in her own right. Zay kept regular contact with us during this time and together they are a formidable team which will be very successful. We would have no hesitation in recommending Zay. It has been through her approach, her manner, her tenacity and her willingness to go the extra mile that have seen us through to a successful sale and enabled us to make a purchase in another city where we want to be. It has been a pleasure to work with Zay and her daughter Steph and we wish to thank them for the way they have treated us throughout the process, seeing it through to its conclusion."
R & R Marris
"Zay helped us through a very difficult process which involved a family bereavement during the sale of our parents home. Her Team made the entire process as easy & seamless as possible. All street was taken out of our hands. Thanks Zay & Steph"
Michelle & Bede
"We found Zay to be friendly & very professional. She gave us sound advice for marketing which resulted in a positive outcome with quick sale. She was a clear communicator & we appreciated weekly progress. Always informed us before bringing people through our house & gave feedback afterwards. Good outcome. Thank you Zay!"
Neville & Janice
"What can I say? The Karaka property turned into a nightmare to market due to confusion over the boundaries and culverts. Zay had to do a lot of background work with the council & NZTA. I'm sure she has never had a property like this one to market and in the end I was more than happy with the result considering the circumstances. Zay was very positive and supportive to me throughout the whole process. Most importantly she was honest & upfront about my properties situation. I will be recommending Zay to anyone who wants to know of a good agent in NP. Should I ever be buying in NP again I will be calling Zay. Thank you so much for everything."

The Mission Controlled & Completed --- The Key to Exciting Times Having recently found the opportunity to purchase our “forever home” it quickly became obvious that we needed to sell our existing home absolutely as soon as possible, or we would run the risk of losing this exciting opportunity. - We already knew from a very successful previous experience, that Zay was the person for the job ! The New Mission The mission we engaged Zay to control and to complete this time, had the following two very important criteria: 1. Sell our property within just a few weeks. 2. Achieve its true market value The Result --- Success ! Zay came-through, and excelled on the completion of the mission (as we had predicted that she would). The Key We know (and have now twice experienced) that the repeated successes come from Zay‘s key ingredients all blended into the one team … - Copious amounts of intelligent initiative and energetic drive - Clear articulation skills and immaculate personal presentation - A knowledge base that is built from years of real experiences with people, marketing and selling - Creation of outstanding and meticulous marketing initiatives - A clear understanding of the value of real team work within TeamZay and closely involving the client Mission Control TeamZay really are a motivated team on a mission. We have experienced the marketing & communications of Steph (with her sunny personality) and the support of Bill, all to be highly efficient, friendly and right on-song. Thank you Zay and team for a great job, and with all the right & proper things all done right for all the parties.

"Zay & her team showed true professionalism, market knowledge by way of the type of sale, which was sold in a fantastic time frame. We were delighted with the sale price and in particular the handling of Open Homes in conjunction with difficult tenants. Zay, your the bomb!"
Murray & Vicki
On behalf of our family it is with pleasure I recommend Zay and Steph in their team effort. Throughout our experience Zay’s approach was professional, refreshingly direct and most informative regarding our options with the sale of our late mothers property. Her extensive knowledge, skills and demonstrable expertise to facilitate the sale has achieved excellent results, for us in particular, but also for the purchaser and immediate neighbourhood. A winning trifecta! Steph kept us very well informed, together the process was seamless. It is truly a lovely ending to our mum’s story to have the original owners daughter purchase the property, it will continue to be well loved. In gratitude for an all round positive experience, well done Team Zay, awesome! With warm and sincere regards, Chris McCallum
