Aman, recently crowned as Harcourts’ top-selling agent for Auckland and the northern region, is not only making waves in the industry but is also set to feature in an upcoming reality show focusing on New Zealand’s upscale property market.

Venturing into the challenging realm of the $15 million plus market, Aman and David are orchestrating substantial transactions, encompassing high-end properties and development ventures.

David Findlay reflects on the surprising level of interest garnered from nearly 50 potential buyers, highlighting the complexity of the deal which necessitates an investment nearing $50 million, encompassing land acquisition and subsequent residential development.

The property in question, owned by the Pacific Islanders Samoan Presbyterian Church, had attracted significant attention since its listing in October 2021. Gulia emphasizes the church’s intention to find the right buyer, prioritizing compatibility over mere financial considerations.

With plans to alleviate the housing shortage in the area, the church opted to sell the land, intending for it to be utilized for residential purposes. The purchaser, an undisclosed construction company, plans to erect approximately 100 homes on the land, while allocating space for a church and community facility.
