About Blair

Few real estate professionals understand the residential property market as well as Blair Cranston.

A qualified quantity surveyor, Blair has extensive experience in subdivision development, town planning, feasibility studies, architectural design, resource consents, building consents, construction, sales and marketing and contract law. He has been directly involved in the presentation, marketing and selling of hundreds of homes throughout the Auckland region.

A residential specialist, Blair provides a unique skill set and service in the marketing and selling of plaster clad and difficult to sell homes, offering vendors pragmatic advice on how to prepare and add value to their homes and achieve the highest possible sale price for their property.

Section vendors and purchasers benefit from his experience and ability to consider the right design approach for different building sites.

Blair has an eye for detail and is acutely aware of the need for good product presentation. One walk through a property and he can advise precisely what is needed to raise it to the required standard and maximise value.

Having lived on the Hibiscus Coast for many years, Blair has extensive local knowledge and a wide range of contacts in the industry. He has a keen interest in Surf Lifesaving and served as a Director of Surf Life Saving Northern Region for 9 years, including a year as Chairman. He has received awards for service to Red Beach Surf Life Saving Club and to Surf Life Saving Northern Region.

He focuses on and specialises in properties in Silverdale, Orewa, Red Beach, Stanmore Bay, Arkles Bay, Manly and Gulf Harbour.

Buying and selling property can be complex, stressful and time consuming. Blair will ensure your transaction is organised and as stress free as possible. You will get the very best advice and total commitment, from a person who understands property, who negotiates strongly on your behalf and is committed and motivated to achieve a great result for you.

Blair has developed an outstanding reputation for service delivery and client satisfaction, resulting in being awarded the Client Experience Award for Bayleys in the North for 2019/ 2020




Blair always presented himself extremely well. He sold our home within the first 3 months of becoming our agent. Blair was able to find a suitable buyer. At all times he was professional, punctual and responsive to our questions. We highly recommend him to anyone thinking of selling their property.



We purchased a property from Blair and he was extremely supportive for the entire process. There were a few moments when things were challenging at our end and Blair was incredibly patient, encouraging and helpful. Many thanks Blair!



Blair was a dream to work with. He took all the stress out of the negotiations and kept us informed all the way through. He was able to achieve the result we were looking for and we couldn’t be happier. We would recommend him to our family and friends.



Not many real estate people has the sound real estate knowledge that Mr Cranston is equipped with. He truly makes vendors’ selling easy. I live overseas but if I ever return and buy or sell in NZ again, I would not hesitate to engage Mr Cranston again.



Blair has superb knowledge in building. There is no question too hard for him. This gives buyers confidence especially when buying an older property. Blair is also very honest and responsible. He looked after us before, during and after the purchase. Most important of all, he clearly represents and works hard for the vendors interests while at the same time understanding the buyers needs throughout the purchase. I have a lot of respect for Blair and Bayleys as an agency.




Your generosity and caring for our interests were always paramount.

We have found you to be highly ethical, fair and professional, a warm man who goes the extra mile to deal with us personally to ensure our ideas and environmental concerns were fully heard and acted upon.

We have recommended you to many people and are happy to continue doing so.

Thank you for all you have done for us and our family
