John Pasley was born in Christchurch and moved to Auckland’s North Shore 5 years later for his formative years and education. From an early age he was a talented sportsman and was in both First XI cricket and First XV rugby teams at college. His subsequent university studies for a B.Com were interrupted by the offer to play professional rugby in Australia so John took the gap and played there for 3 years. A stint in sales back in New Zealand followed. Again, John was approached to play professional rugby and to coach and play cricket, this time in the U.K. He dovetailed his playing in London with a sales role at a French company specialising in commercial building security system refurbishments. Four years later he returned to New Zealand with life membership of the Wimbledon Rugby Club and a wealth of experience in property renovation, sales and project management under his belt.
For the following five years John consolidated his sales management career with a global telecommunications company in Auckland before moving into real estate in 2000 in the Bay of Plenty. In this, he hit the ground running – the sporting idiom is apt given his background – and the ensuing 20 years with several respected and high-profile brands have been consistently underscored by top awards and industry recognition for his significant successes along the way. His capacity to think strategically, push the envelope and maintain a cool head are traits that serve him well when the deal needs to be done. He obtained his AREINZ in 2007 - a qualification that adds to his knowledge, competency and capacity to serve.
In 2018 John, who has been negotiating the property sales of his clients under the Ray White banner from his Mount Maunganui base since 2011, launched JOHN PASLEY & ASSOCIATES. He saw this as an opportunity to enhance his services to the residents of Tauranga with his select team of real estate professionals utilising the superior marketing strength, global reach and integrity that Ray White enjoys.
In his rare spare time John loves a game of golf, treks, works out at the gym, and socialises with family and friends.
