Recently awarded the prestigious national honour of Bayleys Top 5% Salespeople, Gisborne Rural Specialist Simon Bousfield is one of New Zealand’s top real estate agents.
Simon is widely respected by both his colleagues and clients who love dealing with him. Highly versatile Simon uses his extensive technical skills and widely established networks to successfully close deals over a broad range of rural property, securing both local and international buyers in the process.
Simon credits his rural upbringing, on a Hawkes Bay Sheep and Beef farm with fuelling his desire to return to his rural roots after a stellar sales and management career working for Coca Cola Amatil and the Eastern Institute of Technology.
“What attracted me to Bayleys was their dominant position in the rural market, top notch brand and absolute focus on customer service through building strong relationships to deliver results”
Forming a strong relationship with Rural Specialist James Bolton Riley, has enabled this dynamic duo to best serve their rural community. “Working as a team we cover more than twice the ground we could on our own, this reflects on our clients. Better service ensures they get the best end result. ”
Results which speak for themselves with this top performing Rural team closing over $78 million dollars worth of deals during the 2017/2018 year across Farms, Horticulture, Bare Land, Forestry and Lifestyle Blocks.
“James and I pride ourselves on having robust processes, wide ranging networks, and keeping clients informed every step of the way. We provide them with all the necessary information, so they can make informed decisions when deadlines loom.”
Further extending his commitment to the industry and community, Simon is now a proud shareholder and Director at Bayleys Gisborne, much to the delight of Gisborne Principal James Macpherson “It is a perfect partnership, and I know the business is in very safe hands. Simon is excellent, and is part of a very powerful team. The goal is always to have people better than yourself, Simon is out creating a reputation rather than relying on one, he is wise beyond his years, has a huge capacity for work and is well supported by his wonderful wife Zara.”
With plans already underway to expand his Rural Team, Simon is excited by what the future holds and the unique position he’s in to work with the Rural Community to further growth and development in the District.
