Art Rolfe of NZ Real Estate. 50 years experience in Waikato Real Estate

Art Rolfe AREINZ

Licensed Real Estate Agent (REAA 2008)

A 50 Year Local Real Estate Veteran....

Commencing in Real Estate as a salesperson in 1973, Art qualified for his AREINZ in 1976, topping the Waikato in the Real Estate examinations in that year and winning the prestigious Stewart Boyes Prize for excellence.

After a year's OE in England and Europe, Art returned to Hamilton in 1978 and started with Hamilton Realty, and as the story goes, liked it so much, he bought the company.

In the early 80s, it was fashionable, and advised, to use your own name on the company masthead, so the name was changed to A E Rolfe Realty, the business relocated from Victoria Street to Tristram Street, and a second office opened in Cambridge in 1985.

By 1990, the franchises had come to town, and the Industry engrained 'Bums on seats' mentality as the only way to grow or protect market share began to take its toll, both on the many small agencies, and Salespersons incomes - that mentality continues today.

In 1991, Art merged his company with two other firms to form Ace Real Estate (1991) Ltd. and, as a Director and General Manager, grew the company to six offices and over 60 personnel.

Art left the Hamilton operation in 2000, retaining ownership of, and managing the Cambridge Agency, Ace Real Estate, until selling the business in 2007.

After several years Commercial Property involvement in Hamilton, but always with an eye on the Residential sector, it became evident that there is now an opportunity, and a need, for a new model Real Estate Agent in the Hamilton scene - NZ Real Estate - and naturally, we've hit "Delete" on outdated, obsolete overheads, and we pass the savings on to you..

If you're thinking of selling, consider NZ Real Estate, the name says it all - Local and Independent, so please contact us for a free, no obligation, market appraisal.

50 Years in Local Real Estate - now that's Experience....

Thank You.

Some of my recent testimonials and sold properties 

We thought, why not try this different real estate company?

Having previously sold privately on Trade Me, going back to an agent was hard. We didn’t want to pay huge fees. Not only did on we save on fees, we experienced great care and service beyond what we expected. Art and his team have a passion for looking after their clients, and we found him honest and invested in our best interests. NZRE are making an effort to change the traditional real estate game. We didn’t feel like we were just another sale. If you want to be taken care of and save on fees, we would highly recommend NZRE. We wouldn’t hesitate to use NZ Real Estate in the future. Thanks again team.

Just sold my property in Hamilton with NZ Real Estate!   

 Not only did I save a ton of fees, I got an awesome service! nzre is a welcome disruptive change to the real estate scene. When I told another agent that I decided to go with NZRE over his company, he replied “Goodluck,you’ll never sell your house"         And here I am! Keep up the great work Art and Team – I really hope that you continue whatever it is you are doing!
