About Dave

Dave has been mainly centered in the Upper Clutha region for 20 years. Dave has been successfully involved in subdivisions working alongside the Developers, Surveyors, Planners and Engineers both from a land acquisition stage through to the completion of sales. Also, specialising in residential, lifestyle, commercial and business sales, Dave has a passion for all things Auction. Dave’s real estate career excelled through the crash of 1987 and the slump in the late 1990’s. The hype after the turn of the century and the fallout in 2007 have all added to the experience that Dave can bring to your real estate needs. Dave has been a real estate agency owner/director at one of Wanaka’s leading agencies and has gone through three mergers which he believes has made him well grounded in all real estate matters. Dave believes that is what has made him successful in real estate and the reason you should talk to him is simple, “his commitment to you, the vendor, to achieve an outcome to your liking”. Dave is supported by his wife, Charlotte Lucas, their two girls Harriet and Nell and when he is not with them you will find him on the lake coaching the Wanaka Rowing Club that he co-founded in 2007, skiing up at Treble Cone or biking around the Central trails.

Marion Murphy
Dave from your Wanaka branch was very switched on. Gave us a great appraisal and worked for us from start to finish. We ended up very happy with no hassles. We also have to mention Amy from your Timaru branch, although she didn't have anything for us she helped us with areas she thought we would like and still rang us later to see if we were happy. Cheers guys and thanks for all your hard work
Devon and Pauline Miller

Shayne & Tracy Kirk

Nancy and Ray Annan
Our consultant was very professional, easy to talk to, and well researched in the area he was dealing with. He understood what we were trying to achieve, and if that wasn't working he would gently steer us towards a solution that fitted the situation. We could see his determination to get the property sold, he certainly wasn't going to give up. All in all we all got the result we wanted. The sale was closed.
Mr F. Panting & Ms. T. Stedman
