Phil Axtens

I believe my customers are entitled to a professional approach with superior service when making one of the most important decisions of their lives. I love solving people’s dream home dilemmas and do this through providing a 7-day a week service ensuring the communication level is meaningful and speedy, providing a smooth transaction. Having been raised in South Auckland, I have an intimate knowledge of the area’s diversity, combining both its people and property.


My education was completed in Papakura before gaining a trade qualification in the automotive collision repair industry. Overseas aspirations soon followed with extensive travelling around the UK and Europe, resulting in two “life changing” years during my OE.

On returning to New Zealand, I entered the Tourism Industry, managing and selling tours throughout NZ which led me to fully appreciate that my career path would always need to incorporate a strong 'people focus'.

On that note, I now strive to match “people and property”. My success lies with being trustworthy, friendly, efficient and genuinely committed to helping you achieve your goals, whilst always making you feel at ease. Having been recognised by both Harveys' and LJ Hooker in the Top 10% of sales people in the company. Having achieved these wonderful results stamps credence on what is important to me and that is a quality of service that is not easy to find in our industry.

What our clients have said about Phil

Jan Smyth


Papakura, Auckland

"Phil Axtens and Harveys Real Estate Papakura were recommended to me and I am so very pleased that I chose Phil to sell my property. Phil has great marketing skills and was very helpful and positive. He regularly contacted myself and my son on proceedings and in two weeks had an unconditional sale.  Phil you are awesome. Thank you so much for making it so easy for me.  I can’t speak highly enough of this outstanding agent."

John & Heather Cleaver 


Karaka, Auckland

"Heather and I built and resided in Karaka for 37 years. With the family gone and we are not getting any younger, we decided with sadness to sell our very large home and our beautiful view over the water. We contacted agents from several companies. On viewing an open home we spoke to one very personable young man, agent Phil Axtens of Harveys Real Estate. We invited him to appraise our home which he did with speed.  Despite a very difficult market our place was sold in a very brief period.  This was mainly due to Phil’s energetic, optimistic and always happy attitude and his ability to speak with people and his commitment to extensive advertising. All this was illustrated when he, once again without any fuss or bother found our new beautiful home in Papakura. Phil has displayed outstanding professional ability and we cannot over emphasise his valuable assistance over and above his normal obligations.  He was superb and a credit to his firm! Phil has rung us to ask how we are. We are very happy, thank you Phil."

Darren and Banu Elmore


Papakura, Auckland

"During our dealings with Phil we found him to be both professional and courteous at all times and would always go the extra mile to get things done.  He was always honest and had constructive opinions when asked and regular updates on all activities at his earliest convenience. Overall, we would like to say that we would not hesitate in recommending Phil if you are looking to sell your property, a great negotiator and a great guy"
