  • Sebastian

    Sebastian Spada

    Sebastian moved to New Zealand in 2010 and boasts 20+ years of commercial experience across different sectors. With large international experience across New Zealand, South America, USA and Europe, it was during his time in Spain that he founded a successful real estate agency, focused on providing its customers with a top-quality service and producing countless happy buyers and sellers.

    It was in Europe also where he discovered that property owners could, with the right coaching, sell their properties privately and save thousands, and decided to apply this idea to the New Zealand market, where he met Andrew and discovered The Property Coach system.

    Apart from his global real estate and commercial acumen, Sebastian enjoys travelling, doing sports and loves helping people achieve their goals. He also loves spending time with his beautiful family, with his wife Cos, and his three wonderful children, Matilda, Lorenzo and Salvador.

  • Garrath

    Garrath Glass

    As a sports coach and entrepreneur, I’ve enjoyed a rich and varied career running businesses in unique places. Whether running tennis academies in South Africa and Dubai, developing luxury surf villas and a travel agency on the south coast of Sri Lanka – I’ve always been in the business of bringing people joy.

    With our beautiful twin girls fast approaching school age, my Cantabrian wife and I knew it was time to complete our Sri Lankan adventure, and we decided to put down roots in the Garden City.

    I found kiwis fascination with property infectious, which led me to pursue a career as a Real Estate Agent.

    When I first met Andrew Thiele and learned about The Property Coach model it just clicked, I loved the idea of empowering and supporting homeowners to sell their own homes. The “Robin Hood” ethos of the business aligned perfectly with my values and was another opportunity to be in the business of joy.

    Everything property from architectural design, building construction, the possibilities of generational security, it all fascinates me, and helping my clients sell privately and seeing them save thousands is a big bonus.
