About Wayne Espie

Wayne Espie is one of those real estate people you just love to be working with. His real estate skills aside, Wayne’s past qualifications and work/life experience as a Physiotherapist bring you a real estate professional
with undoubted people, marketing and negotiation skills, allowing him to achieve exceptional results for those he works with.

Wayne honed his unbridled Communication skills in his 25 years as a Health Care Professional. His background and caring approach gives him the valued ability to relate to people from every corner of the globe and all walks
of life, from Line Worker to Surgeon. His confident, relaxed manner made the transition from Physiotherapist to a highly skilled realtor and public negotiator (Auctioneer) appear almost seamless.

Wayne won the coveted title of ‘NZ LJ Hooker Auction Idol’ in both 2014 & 2015 and competed in the 2016 LJ Hooker International Auctioneering Idol finals in Cairns, Australia. In 2015 Wayne was also voted #1 in Auckland
& #2 in NZ by Vendors in the LJ Hooker “rate my agent TV promotion. In October 2018 he represented NZ again in the LJ Hooker International Auctioneering competition in Hamilton Island, Queensland and most recently he
was a competitor in the inaugural LVD Australasian Invitational Auctioneering competition in Queenstown and the 2019 REINZ Auctioneering Competition in Auckland.

The character historic properties of Freemans Bay, Ponsonby, Sandringham, Kingsland and Grey Lynn are Wayne’s forte, however, he has sold many properties for premium prices anywhere from Orewa to Papakura.
Rather than rent, he bought and renovated his first similar “historic villa” in Dunedin whilst a student, selling for a handsome profit on the completion of his studies. Having a father who was an ‘old-school’ skilled cabinetmaker
and a mother a commissioned interior designer, whose last two self-built properties have been featured in Trends and NZ House & Garden magazines respectively, Wayne has been brought up with an eye for what
makes a property.

Wayne has a highly competitive, tenacious attitude, a unique sense of humour and a real ability to “think outside the box”, making him a skilled realtor and Auctioneer you can confidently work with.
