Dunedin Residential Sales
Clayton grew up learning all about real estate. His family invested in University rental properties, so he was destined to follow in their footsteps. Now he works with his brother Lane, as part of a formidable team, listing and selling University investments.
If you are familiar with the Dunedin student flat market, you will be familiar with “The Sievwrights”. Brothers Clayton and Lane, who are responsible for a large portion of the student flat sales in the city.
Property is in my blood. We grew up with the family always busy with our own rental properties – carrying out maintenance and keeping a close eye on the market.
Twelve years ago, I made the move into real estate. It wasn’t a hard decision, given my genuine interest in property and the family connection. Prior to becoming a property consultant, I worked in the building and hospitality industries. I also have a diploma in business, majoring in marketing and management. The marketing background, in particular, is something I use every day to help sellers achieve their goals.
While student rental investments are a significant part of our work, a large percentage of our sales are in family homes and inner city rental investment properties, beyond the campus area.
When it comes to selling real estate, my approach is positive, upfront and honest. I listen carefully, so I understand both the buyers’ and sellers’ needs. If I see any potential hiccups, my brain starts ticking for a solution straight away.
