Wairoa District Valuers
Wairoa property valuers
Valuing residential and coastal properties across the Wairoa District is something both Wairoa property valuers Andrew Chambers and Bevan Pickett thoroughly enjoy. They regularly visit Wairoa, Mahia and other parts of the district and know it exceptionally well. Andrew often splits his time between Hastings and Mahia.
Mahia Peninsula is undoubtedly Wairoa District’s best known holiday and tourist destination with many Gisborne and Hawke’s Bay owning baches or properties there.
Anyone keen on surfing, fishing, and diving has usually been to Mahia or wants to. While it used to be seaside summer holiday spot it’s now a popular year-round destination for holidaymakers, tourists, and property valuer’s partial to a spot of diving.
Wairoa township acts as gateway to both Mahia and Lake Waikaremoana and is a proud rural service centre. It’s “The way NZ used to be” yet offers a full range of local amenities. Since 2005, it has also hosted the nationally-recognised Wairoa Maori Film Festival. Wairoa District Council is actively encouraging new interest in the town including agribusiness and eco-tourism. This is leading to increasingly positive community vibe.
Lake Waikaremoana, the ‘sea of rippling waters’, lies on the edge of Te Urewera National. Traditionally popular with trampers, hunters, anglers and is a now a real get-away-from-it-all holiday spot for families. Offering breath-taking views of the lake and national park, Waikaremoana also has remote beaches only accessible by foot or boat.
Wairoa property valuers
Property InDepth valuers covering Wairoa District provide detailed property valuation reports on a wide range of residential and lifestyle properties anywhere from the Mahia and Wairoa and further south.
“Our knowledge of Wairoa properties, coupled with our access to a wide range of information sources, and our detailed onsite inspections means that our valuation reports allow our customers to make fully-informed decisions in respect of buying a house or property whether it’s in Mahia, Wairoa, or further down in Napier, Hastings, Havelock North or Central Hawke’s Bay,” Property InDepth’s local valuer Andrew Chambers 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 Hawke’s Bay customers via our valuation reports. As our slogan states we provide ‘Detailed Valuations – Delivered Fast’ and this is what separates us from our competitors,” fellow valuer, Bevan Pickett, adds.
PROPERTY VALUER PROFILES
Property InDepth has two very experienced Registered Valuers covering Wairoa.
Andrew Chambers is a very hands-on guy and likes nothing better than getting out amongst it all, assessing the lay of the land and local property scene for himself. Given this it’s no surprise that Hastings-based Andrew has been actively involved in the property industry in some way or another since 1992, in both Hawke’s Bay and up in the Bay of Plenty.
Since returning home to Hawke’s Bay in 2001 to work as a valuer, Andrew is even more familiar with the wider region – including Wairoa, Napier City, Hastings and CHB. He knows all of these areas like the back of his hand. He’s worked in virtually every street, settlement, urban and rural neighbourhood, clocking up tens of thousands of kilometres, wearing out plenty of shoes in the process. He is proud to be part of the Property InDepth group, with his team comprising three Registered Valuers who continue to provide valuation services and property advice to their valued clients.
“I’m looking forward to continuing to work with my strong network of clients and property-related professionals and continuing to provide them with the reports and consultation documents they need, enabling them to make well-informed decisions.”
Andrew has been involved in providing valuations for mortgage finance, sales purposes, probate, matrimonial settlement, insurance, and compensation. “In addition, I was involved in a number of development projects on both a valuation and consultancy basis, including housing developments, subdivisions and the taking of land for public works.”
He prides himself on being a self-motivated and well organised professional. He’s able to work to tight deadlines, while maintaining a focus on accuracy and achieving key targets and results.
“I have experience in the valuation of various classes of urban and rural properties including large-scale grazing properties, horticultural blocks and lifestyle units. Specialised properties that I have been involved with include the valuation of camping ground facilities and rural properties utilised for alternative purposes, and the valuation of plant and chattels for going concern and asset purposes.”
On the home front, he’s a keen family man and father and involved in a variety of coaching and community roles. “I have a huge passion for the outdoors and sports and am a keen diver, hunter and strive to keep as physically fit as possible and consider myself a contributing team member in whatever activity I become involved in.”
Bevan works in our specialist valuation team in Hawke’s Bay. He brings expert knowledge, being a Registered Valuer with over 20 years’ experience in the Hawke’s Bay property industry.
Bevan grew up on the family sheep and beef farm in Wairoa. He then “shore” his way through a Bachelor of Applied Science Degree from Massey University majoring in Agriculture and Rural Valuation & Management. In 2000 he began working as a valuer for Quotable Value, firstly in Gisborne and then based out of Napier where he was able to get experience in valuation across all types of property over 17 years. Following this he worked as a Rural Real Estate Salesperson for Property Brokers in Central Hawke’s Bay.
He has a good understanding of what motivates people in property transactions, and he gained excellent experience in negotiation and ‘the transaction’.
He has personally invested in property from a young age having bought, sold, and developed numerous properties. He currently farms part-time some 850 hectares in Wairoa and Tutira in partnership with his parents.
This interest in the farm has resulted in a move back to working as a Property Valuer on a permanent part-time basis which has allowed him to spend more time on the farm and with his young family.
Bevan has seen significant change in the property sector in his 20 years of involvement. The challenges that we are facing today are significant, but that is what has defined our sector throughout its history – with every challenge comes an opportunity.
He lives in Napier with Annemarie who is currently juggling their young family whilst living and breathing netball, having coached 15 club titles wins over the past 18 years.
Along with family, Bevan is interested in all sports, outdoor pursuits, and anything to do with farming and property.
