Babette Griffiths is a skilled real estate professional with 26 years experience in the industry. Her career has spanned roles in sales, auctioneering, management, training, franchise owner and now as Residential Sales Manager for New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty. Babette’s intelligent and pragmatic approach to selling property is balanced by a very real desire to help clients move on to the next phase of their lives as effortlessly and seamlessly as possible.

“My personal philosophy is to enter into a partnership with our vendors. Together we can formulate a specific marketing plan for their property with the aim of achieving the best possible price in the shortest possible time - in the most professional, hassle-free way,” says Babette.

“Well-presented property marketed astutely by an agent who is firmly on their vendors’ side will sell regardless of the market. I have seen many real estate cycles come and go and this remains a fundamental premise,” says Babette.

Keeping the channels of communication open and accessible is paramount to Babette. As a practicing speech and drama teacher and communication educator with LTCL status from Trinity College of London, Babette knows that the ability to communicate effectively with people lies at the heart of successful negotiating.

Her savvy way of communicating with people coupled with an ability to ‘cut to the chase’ in a business sense, instills confidence in her clients. Innovative, targeted marketing campaigns – which New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty is renowned for – ensures that the widest possible audience for a property is reached.

Converting enquiry into positive outcomes is Babette’s strength. She has consolidated an extensive database of business contacts throughout the wider Wellington area and her track record is impressive and the repeat and referral business she receives as a result is testimony to her ability as a deal-maker.
