To sell your property in today’s challenging real estate environment, it’s essential to find an experienced, market savvy professional with proven business skills.
Grant Dickson comes to Harcourts Remuera with an impressive background, not just in real estate but the wider business sense. The knowledge he has gained by continuing to keep abreast of e-commerce developments currently revolutionising property marketing gives his clients an enviable edge.
Grant sets himself apart from other agents by being one of the first to embrace emerging technology – the tools and systems – so he can deliver clever, quality, intelligent strategies that target specific markets for a fraction of the cost of traditional print methods. Always thinking outside the square, he can create marketing budgets that are half what most people expect to pay, yet he can reach around 10 times the audience. Most agents ignore the power of the Net, he says. But it is hugely exciting in the way it enhances the profile of his clients’ properties – ensuring their property stands head and shoulders above the crowd and is the first to be viewed on multiple websites.
By tapping into the vast Harcourts’ network, which has 700 offices worldwide, Grant sees tremendous scope from a marketing perspective.
This astute businessman has already made his mark, having been involved in sponsorship and consulting work for 20 years. For several years, he owned his own marketing company, which he sold to Clipsal, a multi-national electrical componentry provider before entering real estate – joining Bayleys Commercial. Bayleys helped him fine-tune his financial understanding of the property world, offering valuable insights. However, Grant found he preferred the more emotive art of selling residential property heralded by the avalanche of opportunity served up by the Net. By the time he switched to residential, Grant had forged great relationships with lending institutions, which he combines with his considerable expertise in all aspects of funding, financial transactions, systems and marketing.
Grant is the father of three children who keep him very busy and he is also passionate about his sport. In his younger days he played rugby for Auckland but now he watches the game from the bench. He also enjoys fishing, boating and mountain biking.
For a dedicated business professional who strives to reach beyond the boundaries, Grant Dickson achieves an extraordinary level of service – call him today.
