NZ Sotheby’s International Realty announces significant Auckland appointment

New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty (NZSIR) has today announced the appointment of prominent Auckland property expert Gavin Lloyd.

Lloyd has 36 years’ experience in the property sector and joins NZSIR as the agency’s Managing Director of Auckland Projects & Developments. His principal focus will be the sales and marketing of large-scale residential developments in central Auckland.

NZSIR GM Sales & Franchising Chris Jones says the role was created for Lloyd to manage the company’s increasing portfolio of multi-apartment projects in Auckland.

“We are delighted to announce that Gavin will be joining the NZSIR team, effective immediately,” he says. “Gavin has worked on some of the largest property development projects in Asia, Australia and New Zealand. He has a long-standing track record of winning business, bringing teams together and guiding them towards commercial success.”

Lloyd says he is excited to be joining the Auckland team and the award-winning NZSIR brand.

“NZSIR is a very forward-thinking, progressive agency with an exceptional global reach and strong values. That really appealed to me,” he says. “NZSIR also has some of the top professionals in the Auckland residential real estate market and I’m looking forward to joining them and collectively lifting the brand’s success to the next level.”

Lloyd is currently based in the NZSIR Parnell office and his appointment pre-empts a significant Auckland expansion that the national brand will be undertaking in the coming months.

As well as managing the sales and marketing of upscale residential developments including the contemporary Horizon Mission Bay and The International luxury apartments on Princes Street, NZSIR is working on various multi-unit residential projects still in the planning stages.

“NZSIR has experienced a record-breaking year in Auckland and we don’t foresee the demand for inner-city property slowing down anytime soon,” Jones adds. “Gavin will be a welcome addition to the team throughout this growth period. We are confident that his wealth of sales and marketing expertise and project management experience will be an asset to the company.”
