The name ‘Quilly’ has become synonymous with real estate in Queenstown – and with good reason. An epic career spanning more than a decade has cemented Brendan Quill’s position as the go-to-guy for results. Prior to his leap into real estate (anyone who knows Quilly will confirm he’s more of a leaper than a stroller), prominent positions in Queenstown tourism had already placed him firmly on everyone’s radar as a good kiwi bloke with a top sales pedigree and a personality that can brighten up a dull day..
Results speak for themselves in real estate, and Quilly’s talk louder than most. Word of mouth recommendations ensure Brendan’s phone rings – a lot. Local charitable works as MC, commentator and of course auctioneer mean he’s a busy man. Sought-after for his ability to entertain a crowd, the family man can extract every last dollar from an auction room, be it corporate, charitable or real estate, with a seasoned mixture of acumen, negotiation and pure cheek. His list of satisfied customers reads like a phone book, and everyone comes back for more.
Finely-tuned negotiation techniques and an ‘outside the box’ approach mean he has the skills to bring deals together in a quick timeframe.
Bringing people and places together comes naturally to Richie Heap. Skilled at listening and finding solutions for his customers, Richie brings serious energy and passion to every transaction – with truly outstanding results. A fast learner, Richie established himself as a driving force in the Queenstown real estate scene in a short time, and has spent the years since in building on that success. Auctioneering is yet another string to Richie's bow, with many evenings spent calling out the numbers at charity fundraisers in addition to providing a professional yet entertaining approach to property auctions.
Richie’s a long-time Queenstowner with a refreshing commitment to making people’s lives better, whether it be by achieving their property ambitions or assisting them to improve their health and wellbeing.
Securing industry awards and national recognition have come naturally to Richie – long hours and commitment to his service levels have seen him go from strength to strength in both the fitness and real estate industries. His innate business acumen has seen his sales results go through the roof – a result of his outside-the-box thinking, clever negotiation skills and grasp of innovation to put his clients’ properties at the forefront of the real estate market. Years as a property investor mean Richie’s learnt every lesson as a buyer and seller himself, and fully comprehends both sides of the transaction, lessons he’s happy to share with his clients. Clever radio campaigns and an ever-increasing circle of word-of-mouth recommendations have now positioned Richie as the man to talk to for residential real estate in Queenstown.
Excelling at making deals happen and leaving a trail of very happy buyers and sellers in his wake, Richie’s energy, skill and knowledge are sought-after by sellers.
