‘The best of Custom Residential is now backed by the best of Ray White Damerell Group.’

With the recent partnership between Custom Residential and RW Damerell Group confirmed, Nic now brings clients the culture of an innovative & well-respected independent firm backed now by the finely tuned systems of the progressive and excellence based Damerell Group.

As a founding salesperson at Custom Residential, to date she’s had 11 years in the industry, notably dominating the Grey Lynn real estate market as a rookie in the 2008/09 GFC, and subsequently achieving impressive successes in the wider area as part of the market leading John & Nic partnership.

Always focused on further refinement of all that was truly innovative and remarkable about Custom Residential and the John&Nic team, Nic feels the Damerell Group is a seamless match to her business philosophy, it being a progressive and excellence driven Group lead by good people.

“Essentially, this is a people business regardless of market conditions and other variables, so aligning myself with with the right group was the number one driver in my decision to join Gower and his team,” says Nic.

“I imagine the decision making process was not to dissimilar to the one our vendors employ when selecting an agent: who has a real track record in my area, who has the proven systems, who has some flair and an attitude to excellence around my property and my net result, and who lives and breathes a culture I will actually enjoy being a part of along the way."

Ultimately, getting that blend right it is the only way to ensure outstanding results as well as a great experience.”

Nic is looking forward to building on her track record having been involved in sales in excess of $380m in city fringe property over the past 7 years. Every single auction, open home and buyer interaction has added to a breadth of relationships and networks Nic is connected to - exactly what a vendor needs, to ensure their property connects to the right people and far more of them.

Nic is well known for her authenticity, work ethic and strong commitment to her clients, as evidenced by a strong customer following and high levels of repeat and referral business. With a one step ahead attitude, Nic has picked up all that is on offer at Ray White Grey Lynn and run with it.

Both vendors and purchasers; call Nic to be part of a fresh new momentum backed by her years of experience and market leading success.

What people are saying

We have sold 2 properties with Nic in the last 12 months and cannot recommend her highly enough. Nic is very genuine, pragmatic and an amazing communicator but most importantly she knows how to get you through marketing a property smoothly with a great result. Thanks Nic!

Sandringham Vendor

“Nic is truly fabulous and found us the perfect home in February 2020.” Her ability to match the right home to the right family is unprecedented. We spent many months, literally, combing listings and visiting open homes and nothing was ever quite right. Nic always checked in and in the end, worked her magic to land us in our forever home. Her pragmatism, ability to really listen to what we wanted and tenacity gave us the confidence to jump feet first into the Auckland housing market. Coming from overseas, the process was very different but she made it simple and easy to navigate. She’s hands down one of the best agents in the city and if we ever decide to sell, she will be the first person we call.

“We Were Thrilled When The Hammer Finally Went Down” Picking John and Nic to sell our house was any easy decision for us. With huge experience, a vast database and a super efficient team behind them, we knew they’d get a great result for us and we were thrilled when the hammer finally went down. John and Nic are total pros, and we highly recommend them and the rest of team!

“We've bought and sold (twice) with Nic and John” We are Repeat Customers and are always confident when in John and Nic's 'safe hands'. We've bought and sold (twice) with Nic and John: always well looked after, always receive honest and professional service. When we sell, they provide a customised sales and marketing strategy and unquestioningly get the highest market interest and best value for our property. Forget the 'big volume' brands with their one-size-fits-all approach... They punch well above them all and, most importantly, John, Nic and Team make it all about you.


“On both occasions I have found them to be outstanding!” Sometimes you come across agents that you meet at an open home and walk out thinking I really like those agents and if I ever sell I’m going to use them, and that’s exactly what I did. I have been at both ends of a transaction with John and Nic a purchaser and a vendor. On both occasions I have found them to be outstanding!! They have gone above and beyond, giving me some great advice. Just recently I sold my property with them and throughout the whole process they kept me informed every step of the way, they were always positive, professional and most importantly for me, honest. I was very happy with the result and I can’t speak highly enough of them both, they really know their stuff and I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again. Thank you so much for your hard work and a great result.

“We couldn't have asked for a better team!” Nic and John recently sold my beloved home of more than 30 years. It was a big wrench for me, which they both understood and empathized with. I couldn’t have asked for a better team. John and Nic are both highly professional, organized, honest, thoughtful and delightful people to work with. Their enthusiasm and positivity really helped make the process go smoothly for me. They had to work around the restrictions imposed due to Covid-19 and also some delicate issues involving a sitting tenant. John and Nic handled it all calmly and sensitively, and managed to secure for me a quick sale for the price I wanted. I cannot speak highly enough of them and thoroughly recommend them to anyone selling or buying.

“The sales result was outstanding!” ‘Working with Nic and John has made the process of selling our house stress free. They communicated in a timely, professional and knowledgeable manner and gave thorough feedback based on the market. The advertising campaign had a broad reach and the end sales result was outstanding. Our tenants themselves said that Nic and John were awesome to work with and this alone made the process so much smoother for everyone involved. I highly recommend using these lovely agents.

“We found them both trustworthy and knowledgeable” “My family and I had a great experience selling our home with Nic and John. We found them both trustworthy and knowledgeable, guiding us through the process seamlessly, ending in a top dollar auction day.”

Herne Bay Vendor

“I am beyond thrilled” Thank you for the amazing surprise hamper that arrived this morning, that was so very thoughtful of you. I am beyond thrilled with the auction result and extra happy that the house is going to the perfect person who will fully appreciate it. You two are so wonderful to work with and I can't thank you enough for your help throughout the whole process.

“We could not have been happier - with both the outcome of the sale and the way it was managed.” Our was a sensitive undertaking for any Real Estate Agent; A Californian bungalow, untouched over time and packed full of 50+ years of family memories. The right real estate company needed to be in-tune with us as owners preparing to say goodbye to a significant time in our lives. The right real estate company needed to translate the emotion, the exclusivity, the uniqueness and the potential of our home to prospective buyers who could realise this dream as the next chapter in the life of their family. We believe we did find the right people in John & Nic: From the very start, John & Nic 'got' us, they kept us informed, they answered our questions, they understood our home and all it's character and at the end of a whirlwind three week campaign, they achieved a fantastic outcome for us in the sale of our home! We would highly recommend the Custom Residential Team. They cover all the bases and get things right first time!
