Prior to embarking on my real estate career, I spent over 25 years selling in the

apparel and footwear trade through out New Zealand. During this time I established

solid business relationships and built and maintained a successful and loyal client

base. I also became the owner of successful North Shore based corporate apparel

business; In2Lifestyle Ltd in 2006.

My ability to quickly grasp the needs of customers has led to many successes over

the past years namely the success of In2lifestyle and the growth and management of

an iconic New Zealand sports footwear brand Lydiard Shoe Company.

Born in the far north in Kaitaia, I spent my early years growing up in Coopers beach

on our family farm, before moving to Tirau where my father was a beekeeper. When

he was offered a new career at MAF our family moved to Auckland.

Recently my wife Teresa and I have moved to Raglan to create a new lifestyle and to

start a new venture working with Ray White Raglan. We are active outdoor sports

people and both enjoy road cycling and mountain biking having cycled around the

country and covering many kms on our bikes. Sports have been a big part of my life

and having run many marathons also I have been fortunate to meet and enjoy the

company of many sporting people over the years.

Known for my unwavering integrity, honesty and professional real estate sales

approach, I believe in keeping in touch every step of the way and to offer advice and

guidance through the sale or purchase of any property. My genuine nature ensures

you feel relaxed through what can sometimes be a stressful journey.

I look forward to being of assistance and helping you with your next real estate sale

or purchase and being a part of this great Raglan community .

Just don’t knock me off my bike if you see me on road!! Or give me a hard time if I

am having a coffee in Lycra...

Agent Reviews

Mathew & Lee Hughes

We appreciated Grahams honesty and relaxed approach. He wasn't 'pushy' and took the time to show us the property. He kept us updated with current listings and was always available to answer any of our questions. Thanks Graham.


Graham Rope was most considerate in his dealings with me, helpful and explaining very clearly the process of selling my property. Other staff members were also friendly and helpful including Graham's wife Theresa.

Antony & Wanda

He was efficient, communicative and has a very pleasant personality. This is born out by the number of clients he was able to encourage to attend the auction and bid into high figures.

Sheree Ryan

Graham went beyond a normal real estate agent when dealing with the sale of my property, he referred me builders and trade's that could help with repairs as I did not live in the country - this alone was a god send.

Joanne Seakins

The sale exceeded our expectation with 4 offers on the day. His communication was top notch and he helped finalise the sale helping us get repairs done before the quick settlement date. He was respectful of the current tenant and followed our expectations for a marketing plan.. which clearly worked. Thanks Graham

John Tyler

I felt like Graham's interests coincided with mine and we had similar views on sales probabilities.

Karen Monkley

Found Graham to be real, very helpful, very thoughtful and listens very well. These are the qualities that I like in a person especially when dealing with personal property as such. I value these qualities in persons as this is how I do business myself. And as we are all valued we all deserve to be heard.

Daniel & Jude

Easy to deal with. He worked for us and took our wishes and opinions into account well doing his job.
