Custom Residential turns 10

Time certainly flies and this month local real estate start-up Grey Lynn based Custom Residential celebrates its 10-year anniversary.

This company tends to focus its energies and expertise on local character homes in the $1,000,000 to $3,500,000 price range. It is now rapidly approaching its 1000th sale which is a significant feat for a small one-office operation in one of the most competitive and fast-paced markets in the country. Custom also runs a niche property management business incorporating the same values and approach that it brings to property sales.

Directors John Wills and Keith and Sandy Dowdle would like to say a huge thank you to their wonderful group of workmates at Custom, and the loyal band of locals who have been very supportive of the company from the outset and continue to be to this day.

Founder John Wills says, “As with most small businesses, it certainly hasn’t always been plain sailing over the last 10 years, but the team at Custom feels very grateful to be able to work in such a vibrant and high-demand area. We are very lucky to be able to work with the buyers and sellers of this marketplace, and we can’t see ourselves changing tack any time soon. Small is definitely good and it’s a true privilege to be chosen to represent and market the high-calibre homes of this area.”
