Dan Comeskey & Zoe Buchanan


About us

Dan & Zoe have both lived and worked in the Porirua Basin for over the past 20 years and understand the region and its growing communities well.

Dan’s background in merchant banking, event management, hospitality, sponsorship, marketing and then over 10 years of owning his own businesses, gives him an ideal skill set to achieve his long term dream of selling real estate. Since qualifying in mid 2014, Dan has won numerous sales awards and has a name associated with success in Real Estate. His friendly demeanour and passion to assist his vendors has resulted in a reputation of being a trusted, respected professional with an excellent record for achieving outstanding results.

Zoe hails from the medical care industry holding many roles relating to call centre team management, customer support and facilitation of home care service nationwide. Starting her career in real estate as a P.A to Dan for two years,  Zoe then went on to train and qualify as a Licensed Real Estate Salesperson in mid 2018. Her solid researching skills, strong attention to detail and customer first attitude add to the overall strength of the team.

Having two licensed salespeople actively working as a team is a huge benefit for our clients. Dan & Zoe work tirelessly to deliver a transparent and professional service in a smart and innovative way at a fair flat fee. 

Working in real estate allows Dan & Zoe to indulge in their passion of helping many community & sporting organisations around their region. The pinnacle of their year being organising and running the annual Porirua/Tawa Xmas Lights Trail and their own spectacular Christmas Lights display collecting donations for Life Flight Trust.

What my clients say

Dan's testimonials


Thanks for the amazing support and service Tall Poppy has provided me. I am so thrilled with the result. I have found Dan and Zoe to be exceptionally professional in their approach and I am so glad I listed with them. From the very beginning, they made the process of selling stress free and achievable. I look forward to recommending them to everyone I know!


We picked Dan out of 5 other real estate agents that appraised our home. Dan stood out to us from the others as genuine and a great personality to get on with anyone! He has the gift of the gab and could sell ice to Eskimos! Thank you Dan for all the effort and get our house SOLD! You rock!


From the first contact, Dan was interested, personable and proactive. He took the time to discuss what I was wanting to achieve, and he made certain I was happy with the process. He worked really hard to get the best result and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell their property.


At a time when all the agents were focused on the sellers, Dan & Zoe took the time to listen to what we were looking for & proactively let is know and arranged for viewings as homes were listed. The homes they suggested to us fitted our requirements each time and it was clear they were listening to us, the buyers. After sales and service was also very good. Next time we are in the market, we would be sure to call on them again.

Ken & Ruth

Our selling experience with Dan & Zoe was excellent and stress free. Enjoyable working with them. Dan & Zoe's market knowledge, communication skills and professionalism could not be faulted. We were absolutely confident in their ability to give us the best sales result and this they both did. Without a doubt they are the best real estate agents we have dealt with in all our years of buying and selling property and naturally would recommend this duo to any of our family and friends to be their agents.


I can not recommend Dan & Zoe enough!! They went the extra mile to help my daughter and I into our first home. Friendly and personable service and lovely people who genuinely care. Thanks so much team !
