Director & Principal/ Auctioneer
Introducing Constantine Pappas BMSc (Flinders University), Principal of Raine & Horne Unley
Maybe it’s his standout negotiating skills that have resulted in sales well above expectations, or his energy with an all-in, no-regrets approach that sees Unley local Constantine Pappas win client's hearts and raving fans…
Or maybe it’s his professionalism, well researched and outside-the-box thinking; skills born from a pharmaceutical and marketing background and a Medical Science degree from Flinders University.
“I can analyse information, draw appropriate conclusions and build a strategic marketing plan for every vendor,” Con explains.
And people are the biggest component in a real estate career spanning both residential and commercial sales where Con has a personal, vested interest in all his clients.
Plus, there is his savvy strategy for promoting his skills and business – by allowing his clients to spread the word about his outstanding service.
“Watching agents in the field gives you a good feel for the right fit,” Con says. Knowing that the choice of agent is personal, and clients shop around, inevitably, they come back to Con because his honesty, trust and empathy shine through.
Notching up a wealth of selling and auctioneering experience in greater Adelaide he has now taken the next step as director of Raine & Horne Unley. His strategies continue to leverage great results. Results which make him unashamedly proud. “My clients know that their property is in safe hands because my reputation as a business owner is on the line with every listing and sale.”
His communication game is strong; it’s through regular progress updates and the educational selling you’ll receive that builds trust, credibility, and peace of mind knowing he has your best interests at heart. “I’m a good communicator and that helps me build trust with my clients.”
And networking is another forte. He has buyer and seller connections ranging from financial planners to cleaners, investors, landlords and homeowners.
At the same time, Con takes his auctioneering performance seriously where the stakes are high. As your agent through negotiations or as your auctioneer come fall of the gavel, he’ll hold his nerve with your heart in his hands.
Whether it’s closing the door on a successful sale, or opening a home for the first time, Con not only respects your property, but you as a person and a valued client.
Downtime sees him keeping fit or watching AFL, where he often compares the parallels of this great game with those of his own success – commitment, teamwork, and loyalty – the very elements he brings to your sale to reward you with results.
Con’s game plan remains simple –to do great work, to work with great people and to propel forward with happy clients.
“ I live in Sydney. Con sold my house in Adelaide. All of our communication was by phone or email. I found Con to be extremely professional and very trustworthy. He delivered on all of his promises. Con kept me in the loop at all times and took no action without first consulting me. I would definitely use Con again if I was to sell another house in Adelaide and would certainly recommend him to family and friends who were considering selling a house. ”
“ We decided to sell our home rather quickly and Con was the best person to take us on this journey and was understanding the whole way through. Con had done his homework, was very well prepared and clearly shared all our options. He was prompt, energetic, organised, with excellent follow through. He was very clear and full of integrity the whole way through. He went above and beyond. What a delight to have Con as our agent and I'd recommend him without a doubt to anyone selling their home. ”
“ From the first moment of contact with Con he has always been professional, empathetic and positive. I chose Con because I felt he had great expertise in my area as I had researched his progress with several other properties that had sold in my area. He is realistic and provides considered and appropriate advice. My house sold after 2-3 opens which made for a relatively stress free selling period for me. I would recommend Con with no hesitation when it comes selling your home with no problems and an honest, respectful and up front approach. As a single woman I felt safe and much appreciated Con’s polite and caring nature while never made to feel vulnerable and my opinions were always treated respectfully. Highly recommend Con! ”
“ Con's evaluation of the property was very accurate. He conducted himself in a true professional manner and with great integrity. ”
“ Con was professional from day one. He truly saw the potential and charter my house had to offer. Throughout the sale process kept me up dated with feed back and progress of inspections. ”
“ Constantine is very personable and has great people skills . Works very hard and is diligent with his follow up. Good market strategy and knows the market well. Keeps in touch with potential buyers and communicates well keeping you in touch with what's happening . ”
