  • Simon Hollander

    Simon Hollander

    Licensed Branch Manager

    “Constant excitement and new challenges ensure there is no better business than Real Estate” Brilliance in Balance Experience isn’t something you get overnight. It comes from working through a myriad of different situations so when the time comes for action, you can do so quickly and confidently. For Simon Hollander, experience is something he’s gained with a successful selling career before entering real estate management and ownership. Devoted to the industry since 1998, with a carefully developed progression of nous and skill, he now directs a tightly knit team of consultants, buyers agents and support staff as Holmwood’s Ilam Office Business Owner and Branch Manager. The mindset that Simon first established in a civil engineering career has been crucial to this ongoing success. Numerous clients, multi-faceted projects and careful planning were dominant factors then - and they’re vitally important now. Not one to sit still, for a decade Simon’s dedicated hobby has been to run cycling events in Canterbury. For 6 of those, he hosted the marquee event on New Zealand’s cycling calendar, the Elite National Road Championships here in Christchurch. Modern real estate also demands innovation. You need to stay on the cutting edge, constantly adapting and evolving. At times such a fast moving lifestyle can be stressful so it pays to have someone who can install a sense of lightheartedness in the office. Quite simply, Simon knows what having a laugh means for the bigger picture. He manages with a quick-to-shine smile, a timely word of advice and a no-nonsense approach. If this sounds like you, and you are looking for a change in career, give me a call to find out how we can help.

    Fiona Williams

    Licensed Sales Consultant

    "Honest, Hard Working, Listens!" - Fiona Williams Fiona believes that to perform, requires going the extra mile. She is focused on your desired outcome... Your dream! She believes it is vitally important that all situations are treated with the respect that they deserve. Being able to look at the “Full Picture” and having the structure and strength to support you through the selling or buying process is what Fiona enjoys. Fiona approaches situations with her own brand of relaxed confidence - clients feel safe in her hands and can’t thank her enough. Having worked in hospitality for 20 years, Fiona knows about making her clients feel at home. She takes her time to learn what your situation is and how it is affecting you, with the emphasis on your best outcome. Talk to Fiona first to ensure you take positive steps to achieving your goals. She’d love to hear from you. Fiona was recommended to me and I was not disappointed. She was very professional and hardworking and a pleasure to deal with. At our first meeting her calm, relaxed manner put me at ease and I appreciated the sensitivity and understanding she showed at a very emotional time for me. The very successful sale of my home was in no small part due to her honest, hardworking, professional and friendly manner. I would thoroughly recommend Fiona to anyone purchasing or selling. - W Macleod We met Fiona at an open home, and although we didn’t purchase that property, we instantly clicked with her and decided to take her with us on our hunt for our new home. My husband and I have no hesitation to say that Fiona has restored our faith in the Real Estate profession! She is down to earth, honest, professional and extremely capable. She went out of her way to make sure the purchase of our home went as smoothly as possible, and she put up with my fussiness when a home she showed us “didn’t fit”. Thank you so very much Fiona, you really helped us immeasurably. - Maria This was the first time I’d sold my own house. I had heard stories about how stressful it could be, and was dreading it. But Fiona made the whole process so easy to understand, smooth and really quite fun. She explained the system clearly from start to finish, and kept me updated at all times as to what was going on. I felt good knowing my house sale was in her hands, as she was so reassuring, positive and efficient. Thank you Fiona, I think you’re wonderful! - Rachel We were a real estate agent’s worst nightmare - a family with completely different ideas about what they wanted, with no time-frames on when they needed to buy! We dealt with Fiona for almost three years, as she took multiple briefs, and matched them expertly with houses or land options. The amount of time and effort that Fiona had to put in to find our perfect house was immense. Her honesty, professionalism and patience set her apart – thank you for not giving up! We would have NO hesitation in recommending Fiona for any Real Estate needs, and we wish her well in the future. -Darryl & Martine Swann Fiona was friendly, professional, proactive. The campaign was stress free for us. She provided sound advice on how to prepare the house for sale, to ensure we achieved the best possible result. As the campaign progressed we were keep well informed. On the auction day Fiona and the team were great. We highly recommend you engage Fiona. - Michael Harris
