What Our Clients Say
If you are currently working with or ever get the chance to be coached or mentored by Mark Te Whare listen closely and you will gain wisdom - those in the know will know what I mean.
Auctions are a lot more than calling out numbers. The understanding and experience in running this process is what Mark excels at and no doubt the reason he is employed by corporate companies to teach his methods.
I have known Mark on a personal and professional level for many years and would consider him one of the best Auctioneers in the industry. He has the ability to communicate exceptionally with clients and make every auction relaxed, though is very much in control. We're being rewarded everyday from his help which is highly evident in our results, a 100% auction clearance rate since working together, an incredible achievement.
I have no hesitation in recommending Mark Te Whare
"One of the best things I did in my business was work with Mark. As my coach and partner he has helped me go from being a struggling real estate agent and passing in every property at Auction to tripling my income and achieving an 89% Auction clearance rate in just 1 year.
A Principal from another office told me I couldn't double my income in 1 year no matter how hard I worked. Instead I chose to work with Mark. I doubled my income in the first year and it doubled again in the second.
There's no doubt that Mark's language around Auction is what has contributed to my break through and auction success. Mark's material is a game changer and he cares about the people he works with".
We recently relocated to the Central Coast of New South Wales to be closer to our family after a very successful real estate career in Mackay, North Queensland.
Pioneering a new office, in a new area with a new brand was a lot to think about so we engaged Mark to work with under his mentorship programme. In less than a year we have broken into the Central Coast market, hired three staff, found a premise in the exact location we want to be in, written close to $300,000 in gross commission and retained a 100% success rate for auctions to date either under the hammer or prior to in an area that is not an auction orientated market.
Mark will always be our first port of call for all training purposes. His auction training is second to none and we know what he is capable of achieving when working with teams.
"Business is a fight, a constant struggle, just as life is" said Elbert Hubbard and real estate is no different. However, only a few agents manage to shift the struggle into positive challenges, the fight into productive results, and life into a success story. Those agents that achieve this understand what it takes to be focussed, disciplined, and patient around their auction business.
I have been working with Mark Te Whare for over a decade now, I can confidently say nobody understands the auction process better in any market conditions. I decided a long time ago that if I was to be successful in this business, I needed to surround myself with the best people, the best mentor, the best coach and the best brand.

I started working with Mark Te Whare years ago. It was by coincidence, an earthquake in Canterbury brought us together, and what I quickly learned was the difference he made to the process through his passion and understanding of auction marketing.
Choosing to be an auction specialist requires a lot more than just making the decision. The process of selling real estate by auction requires deep knowledge of how people and individuals are driven. It requires a deep passion for the process of selling a product with a 3-4 week delayed price tag, where your understanding of how to get people to commit to the process, how to retain this commitment and how to build the competitiveness is crucial to the end result for your seller, your buyer and yourself.
Having Mark assist in this process and measuring key performance indicators throughout our campaigns had an immediate impact on the number of committed bidders, seller alignment with the market and the ultimate result of successful buying and selling experiences.
Mark is the anchor-man to serious auction businesses and I recommend to have Mark involved in yours.
I would consider Mark Te Whare to be a true gentleman in what can be considered a tough industry at times. I have known Mark for over ten years and have seen him develop and grow into one of the industry’s finest mentors and trainers, a true coach.
Mark does truly have the 3P’s of Real Estate, Real Estate Training and Auctions. Professionalism, Passion and Process in helping people achieve their goals and the ability to work at their very best.
He has the most confident manner of expressing himself and thus instilling that confidence in all the people he leads and works with. He takes time to truly help and nurture his clients in the most professional manner, people are not purely a number to him.
Mark has always had a wonderful passion for the industry, but more importantly a true passion for people. Process driven and having worked with some of the industry’s finest, Mark has been able to gather all this knowledge and articulate things in a manner that delivers results.
I have no hesititaion in recommending Mark Te Whare for coaching, training and auctions and wish Mark and his clients every success.
Mark has been a person I've looked up to when I started my career in Real Estate back 2010. Since arriving New Zealand around late 2009, I had no proper mentors and in constant search of understanding process and structure in running a successful campaign.
When your selling your clients biggest asset, it is crucial to understand the process behind everything an agent does. Mark was so passionate on how he trained us and guided me to be who I am today. He always taught us to be true professionals and always look after your client at all times.
I appreciate and have learnt a lot from Mark and very grateful that I had an opportunity to be coached by one of the greatest Auctioneers in New Zealand by far.
I'd be delighted to answer any questions and would put my name down on any of Mark's future clientele.
