About Stan Kalafatelis
While the services of an agent mightn't be needed currently, life has nevertheless taught me our circumstances can change in little more than a heartbeat, and our needs inevitably change as time passes.
So when the time comes to find a larger home for a growing family or downsize to a smaller more practical one, it would be a privilege to be part of that change.
I proudly come from a working-class background. The son of Greek immigrants who came to this country for a better life in the earlier part of the twentieth century.
My father was a process worker at a motor vehicle componentry factory while my mother was the home-maker for our family.
Growing up in the eastern suburbs, the work ethic I inherited from my parents combined with my experience in sales, and advertising at Television New Zealand will provide confidence and trust in working with me.
I've had the responsibility of marketing a wide range of properties across many price bands, with career achievements extending to multiple awards for excellence in customer service.
If you'd appreciate an appraisal of your property's selling price, are thinking of selling but not sure where to start, or simply have one or two questions about the property market - don't hesitate to make contact, I'm here to help.
Here are some examples of what customers have said about my work:
"Stan was brilliant. We only met Stan prior to putting our house on the market. He was recommended to us by our Son, who, in a previous job, had Stan as his Manager. Our Son said that we would not do better than Stan. He was so correct. Right from the commencement, Stan guided us through the selling requirement process, in an honest, caring, & knowledgeable way. At all times, he went out of his way to assist. The sale result is entirely down to his hard work. We have already recommended Stan to others, & will continue to do so. Thank you Stan."
"Stan sold my elderly father’s property. He went to great lengths to help my father prepare the property for the market and was incredibly kind, considerate and supportive of my father during the whole process. At my father’s request, Stan also kept my brothers and I informed and up to date with each stage of the process."
"Throughout the sale of the property Stan was utterly professional. His attention to detail, his communications with my brother and me, and his desire to enhance the attractiveness of the property gave us confidence because it conveyed the impression that he was giving our sale the same attention as he would give to the sale of his own home."
"Stan was amazing, he coordinated so many tradies for us (out of town vendors), he was constantly at the property to meet them. He worked hard for the sale and achieved us a price we never thought we’d get. He deserved to get a good result and we would thoroughly recommend him to anyone. And the Ray White team in Khandallah. A+"
"Stan was the perfect real estate agent for our circumstances. My 87 year old father needed to sell his house in order to move into a retirement village unit. I am resident in Melbourne, and due to COVID border restrictions was unable to arrive in Wellington until close to the sale date. My fathers health has been unpredictable, and he is also hard of hearing, so it was important that we have a real estate agent who was sensitive to his circumstances, and able to adjust to changed plans when necessary. I needed to organise many of the activities for preparation of the sale remotely via Stan, and always felt comfortable that I could rely on him to plan these activities with the least disturbance to my father, whilst still keeping him informed of the plans. I really appreciated Stans patience and understanding, not to mention the excellent sale outcome for my fathers house."
"Stan was a pleasure to work with throughout the process. From start to finish Stan went the extra mile, his professionalism, attention to detail and commitment shone through. Thank you."
"Always friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The property turned out to have more complications than any of us realised, and Stan managed these efficiently and competently. He worked hard on my behalf, and also took good care of the purchasers interests."
