About Slade Hocking
Since joining Opes Real Estate as Sales Executive, Slade works with the business’ team of Christchurch-based property professionals, driving sales campaigns and advising vendors on added-value opportunities that can assist in achieving superior outcomes.
Slade brings a strong track record in residential sales to his role at Opes Real Estate, having completed transactions throughout the South Island in his previous position with a nationwide property investment and sales company.
As a key member of the Opes Real Estate residential team, Slade contributes to innovative and professional campaigns that take a fresh approach to the sales process. Each campaign includes bespoke marketing materials to highlight the property’s unique features, in contrast with the cookie-cutter approach used by many larger agencies.
Slade also leverages Opes Real Estate’s large buyer database for each campaign, as well as providing up-to-date market insights and data on buyer trends to each vendor. He prides himself on a well-honed ability to problem-solve and find alternative ways to address challenges, in order to achieve results that exceed his clients’ expectations. This is evidenced by the large volume of referrals and repeat clients he receives.
He has a lifelong interest in investment properties and applies that passion to each and every campaign. He is also passionate about music, and following years of study in New Zealand and Europe he is now a professional musician with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra.
