About Us 

Your 0800 We Buy Houses Team

Hi, I’m Toby. I live with my wife and two children in North Auckland. Born in Hawke’s Bay, over the years I have also lived in Wanganui, the Hutt Valley and in Europe.

I have deployed on operations with the New Zealand Army, have worked as a canvas fabricator and have been involved in security work in the U.K. before entering into the property world.

Having been involved in property since 1996 means I’ve got the depth of experience and knowledge to provide home sellers with a multitude of solutions. I operate We Buy Houses in Auckland.

Not only have I gained my knowledge here in New Zealand, I have also taken training in Australia and the United States to get strategies others here may not have. Having moved house over seven times and been involved with numerous property sales, I understand first hand the hassles associated with selling your home.

I am fully committed to providing great customer service by giving sellers the opportunity to meet when it suits them.

My focus is to bring creative solutions to real estate problems and create outcomes that are favourable to everybody. A good outcome is where both sides are happy.

I’m also a renovation junkie, and am often found involved in do-ups, with a paint brush in hand or overseeing a project.

When not involved with property transactions I can often be found participating in water sports or out in the vege garden.

What We’re About

As you can see, we’re just normal people just like you, though we’re in the business of buying houses. It’s our specialty and passion; we love it because we get rewarded for creating win/win outcomes.

We believe in the words of Zig Ziglar who said:

“To get what you want in life all you’ve got to do is help enough other people get what they want”.

Buying and selling a house is mostly about finance, homes are about people and families, so what we do is find out what your needs are as a person and family so we can both achieve our financial needs.

We are NOT involved with buy back schemes or such related things. Our business is run in a professional, ethical manner and we have many positive testimonials from people we have dealt with.
