Sales and marketing run through Mike Simpson's veins – his family have owned and operated a successful advertising agency in Auckland for almost 40 years.
During his career, he has managed high-profile brands including Porsche, McLaren, Microsoft and HP, and has been instrumental in founding an award-winning start-up software business – so he is tech-savvy, too, which is an essential asset in today’s marketplace.
This wealth of experience and marketing nous is now being focussed at Ray White – specifically helping Team KSD service their clients in the desirable and competitive suburbs of Grey Lynn and Arch Hill.
“I'm proud to be a salesman working with professionals, Keith and Sandy at Team KSD. I think it's a perfect environment to launch my real estate career. The team here is warm, proven, and strongly ambitious, which is something that resonated with me from our first meeting.”
Mike prides himself on his communication skills and the comprehensive network he has built up during his career. He says he’s lucky to have experienced success, but that is a huge testament to the people he has aligned with and who he will continue to work with as he assists them with their real estate needs.
“My goal at Team KSD is to learn. Although I've been in sales for a good while, I'm aware of my status and am focused on starting well from the ground and working my way up. I'm here to help in any way possible by using my skills and experience gained from working in other industries and transferring them seamlessly into the real estate sector.”
Mike has been interested in real estate since his university days when many of his friends studied architecture. He became fascinated with the firms they admired and how design affected price expectations of homes on the market, and this passion has only intensified over the years.
“I'm motivated by success, but success to me isn't just financial. If I can help somebody achieve happiness and a result that makes them smile, then that in itself is a huge success."
