Around 20 years’ experience in the insurance and financial sector working in corporate banking and marketing prior to beginning his career in real estate equipped Gerard with a solid understanding of financial matters. His inherent negotiating skills have been utilised in his highly successful real estate business, along with his capacity to provide expert advice to both property developers and homeowners alike.
Gerards focus is to achieve the best possible price within the shortest period of time, without causing unnecessary stress to his client.
Born in New Plymouth but having lived and worked in Remuera for over 20 years, Gerard takes the serving of his neighbours’ real estate needs very personally. Being a resident in the area means that he understands and embraces the many attributes of the area and his commitment to maximizing his vendor’s investment in real estate is a priority.
His focus is to achieve the best possible price within the shortest period of time, without causing unnecessary stress to his client. He says “It’s immensely satisfying to shake their hand and conclude a deal knowing that my vendors are completely happy. It requires commitment, honesty and a good deal of hard work but to marry a property to an enthusiastic buyer – that is sheer magic!”
Teamed with Trent Colyer who brings a wealth of complementary skills to blend with his own, Gerard offers a comprehensive real estate experience, serving the needs of his clients with wisdom and skill.

Dear Gerard, Thank you doesn't say it all. Your kindness, consideration and most of all patience has been awesome. You and I have been on this journey since 2004, but you still have not given up on me. If I can ever recommend a Real Estate Agent it will be you. Please pass on my thanks to Trent & Justin. None of you ever gave up. Very best wishes to you all.Margaret
