Gordon Gibson – Commercial/Rural Buyers Agent – Auckland

Phone: DDI:      09 2928468        Mobile:   021-922296  Email: [email protected]    

Prior to beginning his career as a real estate broker in 2000, Gordon Gibson’s business activity revolved around purchasing the assets of manufacturing businesses with strong brands that had fallen into financial difficulties, restructuring them and building them into viable companies. This required strong financial management, operational and marketing skills, including international marketing. It also required strong people and negotiating skills. When the New Zealand Government sent loud signals that the country was to move from manufacturing to importing Gordon sold his manufacturing company which had grown to no 2 in the NZ market at that time and moved into property broking with Bayleys Real Estate where he enjoyed considerable success over 18 years. At the time of joining Estate Agents Limited in mid 2018 Gordon was a member of Bayleys exclusive 200 million dollar club. Gordon specialised in marketing Commercial and Industrial Investment properties and Rural Lifestyle properties, the latter being mainly in the Clevedon area. He is currently a Director of a number of private companies.
Gordon’s skills not only involved strong marketing and negotiating strategies for the marketing of vendors’ properties, they also included working closely with and listening to propective purchasers and investors, establishing what they really require and sourcing appropriate properties for them. As such he has worked as both a Vendor’s agent or a Purchaser’s agent. Gordon has travelled extensively through his business and recreational activities. He still travels mainly to United Kingdom and Europe, Australia and USA and is therefore very familiar with those countries, their cultures and people.
Gordon’s recreational interests have been in Polo, in which he became very involved in both playing the sport and in its administration. He is Past President and Life Member of both Auckland Polo Club and New Zealand Polo Association. Gordon also enjoys golf, boating and fishing.

After a successful 20 year career in marketing property and building real estate companies in New Zealand, Rose moved to London to marry her English husband and now resides in West London with her young family. Selling record numbers of apartments and residential property throughout New Zealand, she is well known and highly regarded property consultant from this region. Much of her previous business was carried out for overseas owners who often never ventured to the NZ shores. This therefore required her real estate service to involve many other aspects of purchasing including services of financial advisers, mortgage brokers, solicitors and often tradespeople and furnishing companies and resulted with her having a long business association with many of her clients who could rely on her as a ‘one stop shop’ for their property investment/purchases.

With a strong love and commitment to her Homeland, her focus is to assist you in making your dream New Zealand property a reality. It is always a massive decision to head to another country and it is about managing this decision with expertise and not trepidation. “New Zealand is such a fantastic lifestyle and country to live in. With such limited opportunities in the UK it is about living in the now and investing in a slice of what you may otherwise dream of. I am often surprised by how much love for our country people have and it really makes me miss home dreadfully. There is no doubt the people are warm and friendly and the lifestyle is one that will be envied by many.

If you even have a small interest in an opportunity here, research it and you may find how achievable it is. Invest in something that will last for generations and be enjoyed by all” Having now worked in the London market she also prides herself on seeking out opportunities for fellow New Zealanders or private buyers wishing to invest in this buoyant and fast paced market.
