Gordon has been with Prendos for the last 28 years and as a Director and senior member of the company runs the valuation department in conjunction with Simon O’Sullivan.
Gordon’s role also encompasses managing, supervising and training our team of 15 valuers as well as day to day administration of the company.
His brief is extensive: specific roles include mentoring, overseeing valuations for quality and content; providing advice and guidance in matters of law, property and ethics; auditing valuations for lending institutions, and undertaking regular market reviews and analysis in order to advise clients on state-of-the-market issues and to communicate to the wider property market.
With more than 35-years’ experience in the industry, Gordon retains a wealth of knowledge on valuation methodologies as they apply to diverse property sectors, and of the standards, qualifications and ethics that underpin New Zealand’s property profession.
Although primarily an urban-based valuer, Gordon has had a rural background and an early career stint as a field officer and valuer for the Department of Lands and Survey. This provided Gordon with hands-on knowledge and experience of rural valuations, including the measure and analysis of economic and other specialty rural concerns.
In the commercial property sectors he has significant experience in valuation and other matters relevant to property purchase and ownership; leasehold agreements (lessor and lessee assessments); rental reviews and lease negotiation and as an expert witness in numerous valuation-related disputes in arbitration and in court.
In the residential sector he is a specialist in valuing high-end property as well as standard residential and investment property and has extensive experience in dealing with the many complex issues relating to property acquisition, compensation, easement, betterment, loss in value and leaky-home ownership.
He is also very conversant with rural and urban sub-divisional valuations, management and administrative processes, such as achieving consents.
Gordon has acted as expert witness in numerous valuation related disputes in arbitration and court.
He is on the panel/preferred valuer for Bank of New Zealand Limited, ANZ National Bank Ltd, ASB Bank Limited, Westpac, Liberty, Bluestone, Kiwibank, Cairns Lockie, and the Insolvency Department and has an extensive client base.
