Southern Wide Southland will be combining under the Property Brokers brand from the 1st of April. They are well respected, and we are excited to have them on board!
The merger sees two widely respected businesses join forces, both proudly committed to providing clients with a better real estate experience.
Property Brokers Chairman Tim Mordaunt says, "I commenced my career working for J.E Watson in Gore in 1976, and just loved working in Southland, great people, fantastic property – the best farmland in New Zealand."
Southern Wide, founded by Dallas Lucas in 1996, has controlled a significant market share of Southland rural real estate for many years. Lucas, who has fully supported the move, says, "Property Brokers share many common principles and objectives as Southern Wide."
Continuing, "I have known Tim for many years, John Faulks who will be our Regional Manager is a close personal friend, and all of our team look forward to the next few years with enthusiasm."
Property Brokers is a focused provincial realtor and a member of the New Zealand Realtors Network and is also a member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, a vast international real estate network compromising 70 countries, 550 firms and 135,000 agents.
Property Brokers Managing Director, Guy Mordaunt, says, "Welcoming Southern Wide Southland into the Property Brokers family feels like a great fit. The changeover date is set as Thursday, April 1st. They are well respected, and we are excited to have them on board."
The recent addition of 70,000 Farmland Shareholders in a strategic alliance with Property Brokers has resulted in exceptional national and international reach.
"Real Estate in New Zealand is now about information, advice and trust," says Tim Mordaunt, "and our people have access to more information now than our competitors. The future is bright, and we are delighted to be able to service Southland."
Southern Wide Real Estate Southland's Invercargill, Winton and Gore offices will rebrand to Property Brokers effective April 1st 2021. Their five shareholders, Mark Wilson, John Hay, Dallas Lucas, Brett Lucas, and Wayne Clarke, will all remain with Property Brokers.
Director Mark Wilson says, "We are thrilled to be joining Property Brokers. They are a trusted and respected real estate brand. Good honest provincial people - just like us."
The announcement of the merger with Southern Wide Southland further broadens Property Brokers' commanding footprint and scale, adding more resources and resulting in improved service for customers.
