Bush Rd light industrial units passed in

The auction of 2 light industrial units at Albany by NAI Harcourts yesterday presented bidders with a quandary, as each unit was offered separately.

What if you bought one, wanted both but were outbid on the second?

Auctioneer Andrew North said prospective buyers had presented various scenarios but the auction went ahead with 2 separate offerings. Neither attracted quite the bidding the vendor wanted, and Mr North’s third option of offering them together resulted, again, in him doing the bidding – this time stopping well short of the combined total of the previous vendor bid on one & actual bid on the other.

NAI Harcourts on Shore boosts property management role

The NAI Harcourts commercial agency on the North Shore has begun lifting its property management business after taking on Debi Rowan’s Verve Property Management Ltd portfolio on 1 July.

Ms Rowan launched Verve in 2005 after working at property & investment manager Viranda Holdings Ltd, and built up to 120 commercial & industrial properties under management, many of them for expatriate Kiwis. NAI Harcourts has added another 30.

That side of the NAI Harcourts business is run by Rob Meister, while his joint venture partner, Andrew Bruce, handles agency.

“We wanted a way to get critical mass,” Mr Meister said. “It’s an important thing to have for clients. They want to know you can provide a full service agency. Most of our clients & properties are north of the harbour bridge.”

He said the Brickworks development (pictured) at Hobsonville Point was an example of the synergies that could be achieved between traditional agency & property management – NAI Harcourts leased the retail premises on the ground floor, property-managed it, sold the individual units and then picked up the management again.

Mr Meister & Mr Bruce have a joint venture agreement and a management agreement with Martin Cooper, of Cooper & Co Ltd, who owns the franchise for NAI North Shore and has a very large property management business, separate from this.

Jodine Clark joined NAI Harcourts in September to manage the property management business. She was business manager at Auckland Property Management Ltd, and before that was New Zealand business development manager for Rockend Pty Ltd, a property management software company based in Sydney.

The NAI Harcourts office was launched in May 2013 and is one of 14 real estate offices in Mr Cooper’s portfolio.
