Brian has been a Hamiltonian since 1979. Arriving from Auckland, he along with two business partners established the very successful Gainsborough House Restaurant. In 1990 after 16 years in hospitality, Brian made a career change, joining a real estate company that specialised in the sale of hotels and motels. Then in 1991 he started with Harcourts in Hamilton both as a sales consultant and sales manager of the Central City Office residential team.

The next six years saw Brian become a very successful sales consultant. He received numerous awards including Harcourts Top National Sales Consultant for three consecutive years, and also the Real Estate Institute Top Sales Consultant for this region, again for three consecutive years. Also during this time Brian became a very competent auctioneer. In 1997 Brian moved on from selling to take up a role, as manager of the company’s residential division, which at the time operated from six local offices. He also took over the role as head auctioneer and led a very successful auction team. Brian is very passionate about the auction sales system and he continues to call the majority of the company’s auctions.

In 2004 Brian accepted an opportunity to buy a 50% shareholding in the local franchise company and take up the position of General Manager. He now oversees all of the company’s divisions, from residential, rural and lifestyle sales, to business and commercial sales and leasing.

In 2009, in recognition of his contribution to the Harcourts Brand, Brian was inducted into the Harcourts Hall of Fame. Commenting on his induction Brian says he is both proud and humbled to have joined this esteemed group. Back at work Brian thrives on the daily challenges that this competitive industry brings. He is very proud of the company’s history and confident in its future success.
