Glovers Real Estate launches new office in Blockhouse Bay
The Senior Citizens’ Association hall has maintained a high profile in the past few months. It was sold last December, and now the Senior Citizens Assn Trustees have the task of distributing funds. A call was made last month for charitable organisations that benefit seniors in the Blockhouse Bay area to apply for funds (see last month’s Beacon).
New owners Glovers Real Estate were the successful purchasers of the building, and after nearly three months of painting, building work and decision making the hall has been repurposed into a contemporary new real estate office.
Glovers Real Estate was started in 1983 by Bill and Donna Glover, and is now in its fourth decade of providing real estate services to West Auckland. In 2013 the company was purchased by Kay Niepold, Sam Bellairs and Simon Bradley, all of whom had been with the firm for some time.
Having been established in Titirangi for 37 years, Glovers are excited to now offer real estate services to the community in and around Blockhouse Bay, with Simon Bradley at the helm as manager. Simon and his wife settled in Blockhouse Bay when they arrived in 2006 and are happy to be raising their family there. “We love the suburb and everything it has to offer”, says Simon.
Simon is proud of Glovers’ take on helping people buy and sell homes. “All our properties are priced,” he said, “and we don’t do open homes or public auctions. Instead we take potential buyers through individually. This helps with negotiations and to get to know buyers, and takes the stress out of the process of selling a home, for both seller and buyer.
“Our intention is to provide the best personal real estate service. We love helping sellers sell and buyers buy”, says Simon.
Simon also extends an open invitation to pop in and see the renovations if you are in the area or visiting the community centre next door. “We’d be happy to catch up for a chat and a cuppa”, he says.
