Nigel has been involved in the real estate industry since 1997. He spent 13 years in the South Auckland market with Colliers establishing their business, and 6 years in the East China (Yangtze River Delta Region) industrial real estate markets growing the Colliers team to number 1 in that market. Thanks to his time there he is able to speak Mandarin. Despite being a bit rusty, he is able to understand it and make himself understood when needed.
A strong believer in five star customer service, Nigel tired of working within large corporates which were more concerned about shareholder return than the needs of their clients and teams. He saw joining Commercial Realty as an opportunity to build on a culture where the team enjoy each other's company, have fun and achieve success for their clients.
Nigel is an interesting blend of driven professional and mellow country boy. He is organised and methodical in his approach, and yet he has a nice mellow manner, and a great sense of humor, which encourages people to relax and enjoy his company.
Nigel’s loves are his partner Jiayan, riding a good wave and sitting around the fire playing the guitar for friends and whanau. A man with strong family values he is looking forward to enjoying more time on his Marae in the far North, supporting them with their growth initiatives, and learning Te Reo Maori.
