Nigel Maisey

Introducing Nigel Maisey:

Ask Nigel Maisey what is important to him as a top salesperson and he doesn’t even pause –

“Being honest and listening to my client’s needs” is his reply.

He is a man of his word. He is committed to making people smile and enjoy being in his company. It doesn't stop there. The ongoing support after a deal is done is an important part of his make-up. There are many questions when making a real estate transaction and Nigel is there to help anytime of the day or night.

Market trends change constantly and as part of his business he provides as much information on the current facts and figures. After many years working for a large corporate real estate firm (Harcourts), Nigel wanted to join a team that had similar values to his own, focusing on client service and reducing high commission fees whilst retaining the same level of exceptional service.

Nigel prides himself on the high level of repeat business and referrals he receives from past clients. Nigel believes life should be fun and must include a balance of successful work and relaxing play. Nigel is a keen road cyclist, golfer and fisherman, he also enjoys many other outdoor activities.

Nigel has a background in Residential Real Estate (23yrs) and has also been self-employed as a sheep farmer in South Canterbury. For three and a half years during the earthquakes in Canterbury, Nigel took time away from Real Estate and worked for CCC, CERA (Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority) and CCDU (Central Christchurch Development Unit). He felt he needed to take some time out to help with Cantabrians after the devastating earthquakes.

So if you are thinking of selling your home either now or in the not too distant future and would like a committed, enthusiastic agent who will give the marketing and sale of your home the dedication it deserves, then call Nigel today.

“Nigel contacted me within 15 minutes of me emailing through an enquiry. Immediately I got the sense that Nigel was experienced, professional and would be supportive as this was our first time selling a house. We were recommended Total Realty by our mortgage broker. The 1% commission was a huge advantage too. Furthermore, having engaged with a number of other companies whilst attending open homes, we cant say we were that impressed by the professionalism of other companies. Excellent experience with Total Realty, cant believe how stressless, professional and quick the whole process was. Our house was under offer after the first open home. Nigel took care of the whole process and we totally trusted in him to do so.”

The whole process is very smooth and clear; the fees are very very low and I like that the advertising fee is separate and refundable in part or whole based on how much advertising is used.”

“We have had a fantastic experience with Total Realty & especially Nigel Maisey. Nigel sold our property the day after the first open home for a great price. Couldn't ask for better! He was the right level of personality to sell our townhouse & had good strategies for marketing. He kept us well informed at all stages of the process & was there to reassure us during the uncertainty of the 'conditional' stage of the sale. We were very grateful for his support. He has felt like more of a friend than our Salesperson & is always ready to help with enthusiasm. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Total realty & Nigel to anyone selling their property. Thanks to all at Total realty for making our sale so quick & easy.”
