    Bernie Bliss

    Sales Consultant/Licensed Real Estate Agent

    I first started with Harcourts in Tairua on the Coromandel Peninsula around 1988. Moved to Australia in 1993 and after a number of years in the diving industry started working for Ray White Real Estate. While employed there studied and became a Licensed Real Estate Agent. After I gained my license I was offered a partnership at the Harcourt's office in Cleveland, south of Brisbane. AI spent three years there then took up the Harcourts Franchise in Noosa - Queensland with partner Jocelyn. We sold this business after two years and moved in the Retirement Village industry, starting in Devonport Tasmania. After two years there moved back to Gisborne (in 2007) where my partner currently manages Beetham Village, a lifestyle retirement complex of some 140 residents. When I was 18 years old I joined the New Zealand Fire Service as a professional firefighter and served some 30 years. In 1974 I gained my Diploma of Fire Engineering (from Gt Britain) and in the same year moved to New Plymouth where I took up a position of Station Officer, spending 10 years stationed here. During my 30 years of service I served in Gisborne (twice), Auckland & New Plymouth. I am a past President of the Rotary Club of Gisborne and was a member of Rotary in Noosa, Queensland and Devonport in Tasmania. Before joining Ray White Real Estate in Manly - Brisbane Australia I was the National Training Director for NAUI Australia where I was a Scuba Diving Instructor and also an Instructor Trainer, training divers to be Diving Instructors. I now spend my time between Gisborne, where I work casually for Beetham Village three days a week, and Wairoa where I work for Harcourt's Real Estate. During my work time at Harcourt's I live at Opoutama where my partner and I have a property, and when in Gisborne live at at Beetham Village.

    Licensed Salesperson REAA 2008

Married with two grown children this very proud father believes strongly in family and community, so when he finally gave up the shop and decided he could still provide a service to the people of his beloved Lower Hutt he joined Harcourt’s. Hamish joined Harcourt’s because of the great name that Harcourt’s has across the region and the country. The appeal of the Harcourt’s network, their processes and the way in which they operate a consultative approach to real estate mirrored Hamish’s own way of working. A property developer himself Hamish knows the importance of marketing a property to its best ability and how to find the right buyer. With an extensive network of buyers Hamish always seems to be the right man in the right place at the right time. A passionate sportsman Hamish has long resigned to the fact that he is a better supporter than he is player, as a result he is an avid All Blacks supporter, even if he doesn’t always understand the ruling. Hamish is deeply involved in his local community and believes there is a lot of potential in Lower Hutt and one of the few places you can still get value for money and with his local knowledge he should know.
