A qualified quantity surveyor, who for many years managed an award winning custom design housing company, 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.
Awarded Life Membership of the Auckland Master Builders Association in 2011, for services to the building industry, he was appointed to Government working groups charged with dealing with issues such as Weather Tight Homes and the Christchurch Earthquake rebuild. He has a deep understanding of various roofing and cladding products and issues resulting from poor selection, poor design and poor workmanship.
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.
Having lived on the Hibiscus Coast for many years, Blair has extensive local knowledge and a wide range of contacts in the industry. A passionate sports fan and fisherman, Blair spends his limited spare time biking, rowing, visiting the gym, reading and catching up with friends. He also 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.

Selling and buying 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, from a person who understands property, who negotiates strongly on your behalf and is committed and motivated to achieve a great result for you.
Your generosity and caring for our interests were always paramount.
