Century 21 New Zealand has revealed its real estate winners for the last quarter of 2019 – with Central Wellington, East Auckland, and Waikato coming up to the top.
Te Awamutu was on a roll as it picked up the gold award for sales – with salesperson Eli Gadsby taking the silver award for the fourth quarter.
“Te Awamutu had a great fourth quarter with local real estate legend Gaile Para of Gadsby Realty taking out the gold award for sales,” Derryn Mayne, owner of Century 21 NZ, commented. “Te Awamutu goes from strength to strength, with the office wonderfully rebranded and the new franchise ownership working out well. Those guys are buzzing.”
Other silver sales winners were Gold Real Estate in Manurewa; Iresh Tennakoon and Kevin Ratnayake (Local Realty, Papakura); Christine Stevens (Stevens Realty, Mangakino); Andrew Pugh (Premier, Palmerston North); Alen Moshi (First Choice Realty, Wellington); and Ivan Rakich (Darrak Realty, Albany).

The diamond award, the most prestigious sales award, went to Jeh Wasti (First Choice Realty, Wellington) – who also won Top Salesperson for the Quarter for both Units (the number of properties listed and sold) and Gross Closed Commission (GCC).
Meanwhile, Central Wellington ended the decade with a bang – with First Choice Realty winning Top Office for the Quarter for both Units and GCC.
“Our salespeople, principals, and offices from the small towns to the larger centres finished 2019 strongly, and summer has since been busy. This year, Century 21 is on a dedicated recruitment drive with some new franchises in different parts of New Zealand to be announced in the coming months,” Mayne concluded.
