    John Hollis

    Rural Sales Consultant

    After growing up and working in outback Australia, specialising in rural property was a no-brainer for our resident expert John Hollis. John joined the Harcourts Nelson team with a proven background in real estate, tourism and marketing and an affinity with the industries and people of rural communities. He met his Kiwi wife in Australia and worked in the small outback town of Gunpowder. After taking one look at the South Island decided there was no place he’d rather be. Known as a Kiwi with an Aussie accent, John has even switched allegiance to his national rugby team, and is a firm supporter of the All Blacks. He and his family made the move to Nelson in 1999 - the keen sailor and angler was attracted by the bay and all the fishing, boating and lifestyle opportunities. Unlike many real estate consultants, John decided to specialise in rural property, enjoying the straight-forward approach of country folk and making it his business to understand their lifestyles and the unique demands of their vocations. As a rural specialist, he makes it his business to keep up-to-date with all the latest issues and opportunities, to ensure he has a complete understanding of what makes rural Tasman, Nelson and Marlborough tick. So if you’re looking to buy or sell in the top of the south - whether it be pip or stone fruit, hops, beef, lamb, vineyards, dairy or just looking for a sea change - give John Hollis a call.

    Phil Gully

    Sales Consultant

    Phil Gully joined the Harcourts Nelson team in 2002, with a wealth of sales and management experience under his belt after 28 years in broadcasting. The sixth generation Nelsonian left the region when he was 18 to pursue a career in television and radio broadcasting around New Zealand, returning to the region for his dream job as general manager of Radio Nelson. However the avid outdoorsman was keen for a lifestyle change and decided to escape the corporate life with a switch to real estate in effort to free up more time for boating, fishing and hiking. Work ethics picked up during his broadcasting career, such as the importance of hard work and providing a consistently high standard of customer service have proven to be equally valuable in real estate, with his high standards and the Harcourts sales process ensuring he achieves the best possible results for his clients. Since joining Harcourts Nelson, the father of two has also enjoyed the opportunity to spend more time with his wife of almost 40 years, Anna and their two children and grandchildren. The couple are as passionate about community as they are family, and have been involved with Rotary for more than 20 years, including a stint as co-governors of the top of the south Rotary Group. Phil has also been president of the Nelson Chamber of Commerce and a committee member of the Wakapuaka Taiapure.
