Kaipara District Valuers

Kaipara District valuers

Property InDepth’s Northland valuation team are local experts at providing detailed valuation reports on Kaipara District’s full range of residential and lifestyle properties.

Reuben, Gordon and Renee are Registered Valuers with over 55 years combined experience valuing in the Northland market. Their experience is diverse, and it ranges from valuing coastal properties on the east coast, to lifestyle properties around the district and flats/houses in central Kaipara and surrounding suburbs.

We carry out valuations for a range of purposes including mortgage security, sale, purchase, insurance, tax and trust purposes. We are on the Valocity and Corelogic list of approved panel valuers.

Our knowledge of Kaipara and Northland residential and lifestyle properties, coupled with our access to a wide range of information sources, and our detailed on site inspections means that our valuation reports allow our customers to make fully-informed decisions in respect of their properties whether they’re in the city, the Bay of Islands, the Kaipara or Kaipara” franchise owner and valuer, Reuben Archer, explains.

“We pride ourselves on the thoroughness with which we complete each valuation inspection, and the level of factual detail that we then communicate to our Kaipara and wider Northland customers via our valuation reports. As our slogan states: we provide “Detailed Valuations – Delivered Fast” … and these essential elements are what separate us from our competitors.”

Property InDepth’s franchisee Reuben Archer knows Northland like the back of his hand. We doubt there’s a road anywhere “up north” that he hasn’t driven on. Having spent much of his life in Whangarei, Reuben now lives on a lifestyle property at Maungatapere. He specialises in valuing residential and lifestyle properties throughout the Whangarei and Kaipara Districts and has been working as a valuer since 1999.

Reuben initially studied horticulture at Lincoln University before attending Massey University where he studied Rural Valuation and Farm Management. While at Massey he also completed a diploma in Urban Valuation.

In 2009, he joined Property InDepth and these days he owns and manages the Northland franchise – covering Whangarei, Kaipara and the Far North areas.

“I enjoy the variety of properties that we get to see in our job, and I also enjoy working with our clients to provide them with good advice so they can make informed property decisions. Property InDepth provides me with great technology to help provide accurate advice to our clients, whether they are local or based overseas, and I enjoy being part of the experienced team of valuers providing a network across much of the country.”

In his spare time Reuben enjoys playing golf, taking the dogs to the beach and developing his lifestyle property.
