Your Orakei Expert
Client after client, sale after sale, year after year - you will hear the same feedback about Mike Zelcer. "Nobody knows Orakei better than Mike" (Lynda). "Unrivalled knowledge of the local market" (Glenn & Dani). "The guru of Orakei real estate" (E.Sullivan).
After 20 years, Mike's knowledge of and experience in the Orakei real estate market is unparalleled. He has built a strong and enduring relationship with the people of Orakei and become a respected and trusted adviser in the local community. And it was Mike's commitment to this community that saw the opening of Orakei's first Ray White real estate office in Coates Avenue. Mike and co-owner Megan Jaffe joined forces to put Ray White Orakei on the map in June 2011.

Mike's "Ex" Factor
When it comes to selling houses in uncertain times and in a buyer's market, experience really counts. Just ask Mike's clients - "We were in safe hands and completely at ease" (Mike & Jan); "Helped us through unexpected code of compliance issues" (Chris & Julianna); "Impressed by his professionalism in the negotiation process" (Vincent & Jennifer); "Within 24 hours we had 4 unconditional offers" (Scott). Prior to becoming a real estate agent, Mike’s early career at the Auckland City Council analysing property transactions set him in good stead. It helps him to bring objectivity and balance into situations where the emotions and stakes are high - and to come out with a result. Mike's experience of different market cycles is also invaluable and ensures clients employ the right strategies at the right time to be successful. Throughout his career, Mike has regularly been in the top 1-5% of real estate agents for his employer. Today, as well as a franchise co-owner, Mike remains a regular Elite Real Estate Salesperson within the Ray White family.

Mike was extremely helpful and effective with the recent sale of our property. He provided insightful advice about minor improvements to make, marketing and strategy. Mike's professionalism with managing our tenants and communication through the sales cycle was over and beyond what we expected. He also has unrivalled knowledge of the local market. We cannot recommend Mike more highly.Glenn & Dani
Mike was very understanding of my situation and always professional in his feedback and updates in regards to the sale process. He worked hard to achieve the result and I am very happy with the outcome. What is understandably a stressful time was made easier through clear communication and the fact I felt like the customer and it was always about achieving the very best result for me.Gina Robinson
We just wanted to thank you again for the smooth sale of our house. We had our concerns that trying to organise this from overseas would cause some issues or be tricky, but the help and guidance that you gave us was amazing. Always great with communication and information about the sale process, even helping out letting tradesmen and house stagers into the property. We were well and truly blown away by the amazing results achieved in the auction and thank you and your team for these results.Jane and Tony Hebden
