About Vinay Kumar
Read my testimonials...
In the last six months I have been fortunate to work with Vinay both as a buyer and a seller of property in Mt Victoria. As I buyer I was impressed by Vinay’s encyclopaedic knowledge of this niche in the market and by the very professional way he guided the process that allowed me to submit a winning tender. He was very active in keeping me informed of the progress of the sale which allowed me to have full confidence in the decisions I was making.
Three months later I was ready to engage Vinay as a vendor. Again his expert knowledge of the market gave me confidence in the marketing plan he proposed and in the preparations he suggested, such as providing both LIM and Builders Reports, to deliver a satisfactory sale. Right through the marketing process I was well informed of progress so that there were no surprises…except for the amazing sale price that was delivered by the top tender on closing day.
Throughout both buying and selling processes I found Vinay’s service to be exceptional and would have no hesitation recommending him to others. Throughout the whole campaign, Vinay’s communication was excellent as was his feedback. Vinay happily accommodated potential buyers and nothing was ever too much trouble for him. He was always immaculately presented and extremely polite.
Vinay’s integrity and professionalism were apparent from our first meeting and I am confident I chose the ideal sales consultant both to buy property with confidence and to sell my property knowing that the best possible price would be achieved.

I am very happy to endorse Vinay Kumar as an excellent real estate professional in all aspects. He was recommended to me by friends who went to him with a hard to sell property that other agents had failed to move. He did a great job for them, and now he’s done the same for me!
Vinay is very personable and friendly, with a great sense of humour. At the same time, he is always professional, adept, and highly informed. This is a nice balance for both vendor and buyer. In particular, Vinay demonstrated an in-depth understanding of the apartment market – and specifically company share properties. These have particular features that many buyers and agents don’t fully comprehend. He was able to both market my property extremely appropriately and also encourage serious buyers by explaining the company share concept very realistically. If you can get a good price for a company share apartment, as Vinay did, then unit titled properties will be a breeze!
Vinay is a real problem solver. Selling can be a fraught process, but it never took more than a quick phone call for him to understand any issues and deal with them most efficiently.
In short, go with Vinay. I’m sure he’ll do an awesome job for you!

As a Kiwi living in Australia, the thought of trying to sell our property in Wellington seemed like a very daunting situation, especially as there were things that needed to be cleaned and fixed along the way.
Despite being an absentee vendor, being lucky enough to deal with Vinay as our agent meant the situation was quite the opposite. When Vinay says "he will take care of everything" he really does mean that - and fast!
Vinay puts his clients at ease from the beginning with fantastic communication and great sense of humour; a true professional.
With Vinay's vast database of potential buyers and knowledge of attainable prices for the area, we had a contract on our apartment for the original asking price within days!
My partner and I are very appreciative for all of Vinay's efforts which included arranging cleaning, dealing direct with our tenant, obtaining quotes and repairs to the unit before settlement date, working outside of business hours, supporting the buyer with contacts and assistance to ensure a quick sale and keeping us up to date on the progress from start to finish.
We now understand why he refers to himself as "The fastest Indian" and will certainly recommend his services to buyers or vendors in the future!

I had every confidence that Vinay would succeed in selling our apartment at the conclusion of the Tender period. Vinay impressed throughout as a personable, enthusiastic real estate professional. The marketing campaign was exceptionally well run and in line with expectations we were brought an offer after three weeks that we were pleased to accept.
I would certainly be happy to list with Vinay again and would have no hesitation in recommending him to others selling their residential property.
Now that all the rush a muddle of moving is just about over, we would like take this time to say "Thank You" for all your help with the sale of 5 Kent Tce.Your up to date reports and personal assistance with both transactions went far and beyond what is usually uncounted in the purchase & selling of a property. We would like to wish you every success in the future and know that with your dedication to the job in hand together with your very pleasant manner you will go far in your chosen career.

There is so much that we can write about Vinay but one thing that almost explains everything that he has done for us is TRUST.
From the time of listing the property to sale Vinay kept us informed on the progress of the sale on a regular basis. His commitment and dedication is well above average and the result was very satisfactory.
Vinay has shown genuine desire to work for the best interest of his vendors and when we say this we mean it very seriously as he had advised us not to sell our most valuable asset when we were not suppose to. This is simply commendable as it cost him a listing and we would have listed with someone else but he kept to his morals despite everything.
We highly recommend Vinay to be entrusted with your most valuable asset and we will only list with him if we are selling in future.
Sam & Saida-Roseneath
I was impressed with Vinay's attention to detail, and found his service to be of highest standard. His ability to negotiate a premium for my property proved to be extremely effective. Throughout the sale process his communication was timely, factual and extremely informative.
I appreciate Vinay's efforts and have no hesitation in recommending the professional services of Mr.Kumar to potential vendors.
Just a note to say thank you for your help in finding us our apartment at the end of last year. We are so delighted with it. I really appreciated the fact that you kept in touch during our search for a new home; the internet will never replace a friendly voice on the telephone. We have recommended you to several who have expressed in living in Mt.Victoria. Judith-Mt.Victoria
We mandated Vinay to sell our property after it had been marketed through another real estate company for eight weeks. During this time it attracted very little interest.
He readily accepted our challenge to sell the property within three weeks as we were committed to purchase elsewhere. At his own initiative he ran a short programme of mid-week open homes at both lunchtimes and evenings which resulted in a successful sale within three days. After our previous experience, this was beyond our expectation.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Vinay to act in a consultancy capacity to any person considering selling or purchasing a property within the Wellington area. We found him to be very professional and hardworking throughout the short campaign.
Vinay Kumar was recommended to me about 18 months ago. Since then Vinay has sold 6 properties for us, with some of these properties particularly challenging assignments. Vinay has delivered on every occasion and often exceeding our price expectation.
Vinay is professional yet has a very approachable manner, extremely hard working, honest and informed agent. Vinay kept in constant contact and made every transaction hassle free for us. I have enjoyed my dealings with Vinay, highly recommend him as I have to other people and will be using him again in the future.
Thank you so much for the excellent job you did in selling our rental property. We really appreciate your sound knowledge of the market-especially in terms of market value and in helping us decide the best method for marketing. Your energy, enthusiasm, sence of humour and excellent communication made the whole process much easier, especially with us being out of town. We wish you all the best for the future.
Based on my experience in the past with professionals in Upper Hutt I was keen to deal with another Professional in Wellington. The services are definitely different depending on the areas. The agent involved in dealings with this property was pleasant, approachable and helpful. He appears passionate about his services.

Negotiation process first offer countered so not so simple next negotiation done with the least fuss especially around possession date with my fixed rental expiring. Vinay took the approach with least hassle. Vinay never gave up in finding me an apartment in and around my price range. Vinay was always polite and easy going not pressuring or hassling me. One of my team mates was impressed with his easy going nature too. Vinay was everything you would like in an agent but don't really expect.
Russ - TeAro

Vinay was awesome, he made everything so easy. What made things better was dad cant speak much English but he made dad feel safe knowing Vinay was always honest and that his house would be sold at a price he liked and he never left us in dark about anything. A Big Thank You from the Iva family.
L Iva - Kilbirnie
Couldn't have been more obliging and informative with his service, hence the small gift we extended to Vinay to show our sincere appreciation in his dealings with us. It helped so much to make the purchase/settlement hassle free. Thanks again Vinay! Keep up the good work.
