Colliers International is pleased to announce the opening today of a new franchise office in Rotorua.
The new office is a joint venture with Colliers’ Tauranga franchise and is being headed up by leading Rotorua broker, Mark Rendell.
Rendell has been Bayley’s leading commercial property broker in Rotorua for several years.
“I’m very excited about developing this business with Colliers International. With my local knowledge and experience alongside Colliers’ extensive and specialised national networks, I think we will take Rotorua’s commercial property market activity to a new level.”
Simon Clark, Colliers managing director in Tauranga, says both the Rotorua office and Rendell are significant additions to the company.
“Rotorua represents part of a strategic triangle of growth and business opportunities ranging north to Hamilton and east to Tauranga that we have been keen to establish a real presence in. We are thrilled to be achieving that with someone of Mark’s calibre and standing in the industry.”
Rotorua will be Colliers International’s 20th office throughout New Zealand, and CEO Mark Synnott says the decision to launch the new franchise was driven by the need to address a clear gap in the market.
“We are currently experiencing an extremely buoyant market and having an immediate foothold in Rotorua allows us to realise the demand for our services there, as well as establishing the franchise as a strategic location for Colliers going forward.”
Rendell knows the hard work that goes into becoming a success. He has twice won medals for road cycling at the Commonwealth Games, including gold at the 1994 games in British Columbia, Canada. These days he enjoys the pleasure of mountain biking… and selling properties.
