Savills Expands South Island Reach with New Appointment

26 July 2016

Savills has appointed Rob Gibson to provide property sales and consultancy services in the North Canterbury and Marlborough regions.

The appointment expands Savills geographical reach throughout the upper South Island, with Gibson establishing the company’s first physical presence outside Christchurch since it opened its South Island headquarters on St Asaph St 18 months ago.

Jonathan Lyttle, Savills Christchurch managing director, says Gibson’s appointment is strategic, allowing the company to serve a much broader client base across the property industry including the rural, commercial, lifestyle and residential sectors.

“Bringing Rob on board allows us to build our capabilities across the real estate spectrum and over a large geographical area. There are many compelling value plays available in the real estate sector in North Canterbury and Marlborough, as the area lacks the hype that centres such as Queenstown and Wanaka are experiencing.

“Rob’s expertise and existing networks in the North Canterbury and Marlborough regions, particularly in the rural and lifestyle sector, adds an important new string to our bow. We are very pleased to welcome him to the team.”

Gibson brings 11 years’ experience in real estate in Canterbury and Marlborough, primarily with Bayleys. During his career, he has worked on a wide range of real estate transactions, including large farms, commercial property sales and leasing and residential/lifestyle. He is an associate of the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand and he also has a strong background in farming.
