With a 17-year portfolio in commercial, business and residential real estate, Bruce Young is one of the more desirable agents in the Southland region.
Prior to real estate, Bruce had a long career with the former Lands & Survey Department, initially as a survey draughtsman and later as a property officer managing the Ngai Tahu Land Bank properties and disposal of surplus NZ Railway Corporation land – this combined, he is one of the region’s most experienced and knowledgeable agents.
Living in Gore, Bruce has a keen appreciation of the local residential market and, as a property investor himself, understands the needs of home buyers, investors and vendors alike.
Commercial investors, he says, will also find an attractive market in Southland with its diversity of building stock attracting a high yield compared to other regions.
Whatever your real estate needs, you will be struck by Bruce’s commitment to excellence and authentic approach – he attributes his sales success to his personal code of ethics:
Respect “I treat all people with courtesy and civility.”
Authenticity “I am real and true to myself without pretention or insincerity.”
Humility “I have a learning mindset and am truly grateful for all that I have.”
For work life balance, Bruce enjoys coaching school boy soccer and participates as a member and treasurer of the Mataura Bowling Club. He is also engaged as a Judge at Southland Harness Racing Clubs.
Bruce is particularly proud of the lifelong friendships he has made through his work, and enjoys a wonderful family life, being married to Maria and a proud father to three great sons.
