About Us

Jason Whitaker & David Scapens



With fun on the agenda and never a dull moment, Jason Whitaker and David Scapens are a Real Estate partnership creating a lot to smile about. Sharing sheer passion for the industry and commitment to hard work and achieving results, their enthusiasm has shown Jason and David to sell on average over 100 houses over the past eight years.

Jason Whitaker, young, enthusiastic, professional and a bit of hard case, has now held the Property Brokers National top selling agent since 2005. Introduced to the Real Estate industry by his elder brother, Paul Whitaker (Property Brokers Hawke’s Bay Manager) and joining him in partnership, they went straight to the top and have never looked back.

Joined in partnership by David Scapens in 2008, Jason and David offer personality and results backed by extensive industry and market knowledge and key expertise in investment properties. They now enjoy 95% repeat and referral business and have a lot of fun along the way.

Renowned for being “straight up” and delivering a down to earth, professional service to their clients, Jason and David have embraced the new Real Estate Agents Act and are currently achieving fantastic results.

Jason and David  work very closely with investors including the Hawke’s Bay Property Investors Association and have written articles for the NZ Property Investor Magazine. They have rental properties themselves and understand the “nuts and bolts” of how it all works. Each week they send out an investor newsletter detailing suitable investment properties. This goes out to over 500 investors, most local but some as far afield as the UK, Singapore, Vietnam and Australia. This in conjunction with a weekly new listing letter sent out to over 400 active home buyers. These systems along with their full time Personal Assistant Nicola allow them to achieve these fantastic results year in and year out.

“Selling your property should not be stressful;

It is our aim to make it a fun and exciting adventure

while at the same time achieving the highest possible market price

for your home in the shortest possible time.”   Jason

v  “Jason and David are the ultimate agents, getting the desired result in record time. Two offers within 6 days and unconditional in two weeks at the right price. Unbelievable in the current market, and achieved because of the marketing and systems they use, along with leveraging their huge database and sheer hard work. Their knowledge, complete professionalism and sense of humour mean they’re great to work with. I bought my house through them and they were the obvious choice when it came time to sell. If you’re selling in Hastings don’t hesitate - give them a call. Thanks so much for a job well done guys!” Glenice Riley

We did our research and looked tirelessly for a long period of time before we found the one that “ticked all the boxes” for us. David and Jason were always up with the play, and with our needs in mind, notifying us of any new listings which may have been of interest. With their help we were at the forefront of the local market. We were confident in their judgment and that they were screening new properties to our criteria. We were ready to buy when the right property surfaced and David and Jason found it for us. We had a contract on the property the same day it went on the market!
