John entered into Real Estate in April 1992 after establishing and selling two businesses in the hospitality Industry.
In 1993 he was REINZ National 'Rookie of the Year' and since then has been a consistently high achiever, enjoying particular success with specialised marketing strategies such as Auction and Tender.
His commitment to performance and professionalism is ongoing and in 1996 he obtained a Diploma in Business Studies from Massey University and became an Associate of the Real Estate Institute in New Zealand.
In 1996, John and ‘partners’ purchased Cahill Real Estate and ran a very successful agency until its sale in 2009.
In 2010, John moved to Christchurch, purchased a property, and established a Bed and Breakfast. In 2012, this B&B was rated in the top two in Christchurch and in the top 25 in the South Pacific on Trip Advisor.
John has joined the Custom Residential team as Licensee/Property Consultant and is motivated by the daily challenge and variety this responsibility entails.
As you probably gathered through the selling process, it was not a particularly easy time for me. After being run around by Bayley's for 3 months, I was totally exhausted by what was already an exhausting task. It was amazing to have you two come on board, give it to us straight, help me stage the room (hugely appreciated) and get a great sale out of it. You were both so professional and warm through the process, it made a tough task and difficult time manageable. Really, thank you.
After assessing several local agents we were referred to John Stempa. We invited John to appraise our property and immediately felt comfortable with his approach, mannerism and knowledge of the industry.
John gave us several options to work with which fitted both our budget and market exposure required to achieve the best price for our property. He worked closely with myself and my partner to achieve the best presentation and impact that achieved a great result. Through his vast contacts he managed to secure the front and second page advertising in the weekend NZ Herald Real Estate liftout.
John showed true professionalism and great communication skills from start to finish. He managed to turn what can be a very stressful and anxious time into a very smooth and easy process. We will definitely be using John in the future as our preferred real estate agent.
If you would like to contact myself personally I am more than happy to talk to you about John’s services.
Again thanks John for your hard work and the great result you achieved.
We are writing to thank you for selling our home at 31 Tranmere Road, Sandringham. We appreciated the patience and respect you showed us. We found you very knowledgeable and gave us confidence and correct advice regarding accepting pre-auction offers. The auction programme was well run and we really appreciated the weekly progress reports regarding open homes. We would be happy to recommend you and would welcome any prospective client to telephone us to confirm the above.
Thanks again and best wishes, Sheryl Glasse and Winny Bartulovich
I just wanted to write to say a big thank you to you for all your hard work and help that paved the way for us to buy our first house. Owen and I wanted to let you know that we really appreciated your effort to get us access to the property through the tenants as well as the constant communications with the vendors, drainlayers (!), lawyers, etc. Thanks again for everything, we have nearly finished unpacking and can’t believe it is really ours!
John Stempa has sold three properties in Auckland for me over the past four years. He is very professional and business-like in his approach. He works hard, is enthusiastic and motivated to sell my properties. I feel like I’m a special person, not just an amount in the bank account.
Thanks for your service and attention to our house purchase. We are very pleased to now have possession and it was worth the six weeks waiting. We were very impressed with the service from you and Cahill Real Estate. We really appreciated the herb pot gift for our new garden. Hope you can join us for the housewarming. Tim and Shereen.
