Ray White New Zealand chosen as agent on The Block NZ

Ray White New Zealand has been selected as the exclusive agent to partner with Warner Bros International and MediaWorks on the sixth season of reality TV show The Block NZ in 2017.

“We are excited to have Ray White on board with us as the new exclusive agents for
The Block NZ and we are confident they will do a fantastic job marketing and selling
these spectacular homes,” said a spokesperson of the producer, Warner Bros.

Ray White New Zealand CEO Carey Smith said he was delighted Ray White had been chosen as the preferred agent for Season 6 of The Block NZ.

“I want to pay special thanks to our regional manager Farah Jacobs, who secured this
opportunity, so we could partner with The Block NZ,” Mr Smith said.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase our crisp clean new-look brand and our
growing network across New Zealand. The Block NZ connects with an aspirational
audience through the process of building, marketing and selling of four homes which
are located together in Northcote, Auckland.

“This is a great opportunity for our North Shore business in respect of profile and to
support a collective commitment outcome of success.”

The Ray White Group has shortlisted four agents on the basis of their elite status, then
secondly location to the properties at Northcote.

Confirmed agents are Winnie Leung (Ray White Forrest Hill), Richard Kang (Ray
White Pinehill) Glenn Carpenter (Ray White Beach Haven/Glenfield) and Lewis Guy
(Ray White Takapuna).

The teams have 12 weeks to complete their homes. They’re the largest houses in The Block NZ’s history, each with three plus bedrooms, three bathrooms and a double garage.

Each house also shares a roof terrace which boasts views of the city, harbour and Rangitoto Island.

This year the footprint of the houses is almost identical, so the teams will need to really
push the boundaries and showcase their design skills to earn the highest price on
auction day.
