As we looked for young people who are on the path of success, creating and motivating a team of professional players, our port of call was inevitably at Bayleys East Tamaki, where Investment Property Sales Executive Tony Chaudhary continues to break new ground in property sales.

Resigning from a stable and well paid job was the easiest and the toughest decision at the same time. Easy, because I knew that I cannot see myself all my life sitting in a room working on a computer with not much interaction with humans. Tough, because there was no backup plan. All I knew was that I wanted to work for myself and that dedication was more than enough for me to do something on my own.
Putting in simple words, Wholesale Autos is a dream come true. Growing every year by leaps and bounds, the Company is establishing its name for quality vehicles, excellent service and competitive prices.
I say competitive prices, because the cheapest is not always the best deal. Wholesale Autos is a part of a group which is one of the biggest stockists of Japanese used cars in New Zealand with over 1500 cars in stock every time. With the help of dedicated staff in Japan, we make sure that we get the best quality cars and with massive stock turnover, we have the best prices to offer for the best quality.
Competition is fierce for Japanese used cars business in Auckland, but with the huge range we make sure that we meet the customer’s requirements. Smart buyer is the one who does research of the car that they need and the reasonable price that they should be paying. Those are the buyers who make the best decisions.
We always welcome such buyers as we know after all their research, they will finally choose Wholesale Autos because ‘we strive for your next drive.’
