Tim Mordaunt, (ONZM) is founder and principal of Property Brokers. He has seen the company grow from one office in Palmerston North to New Zealand’s number one provincial real estate company. He is a Registered Public Valuer, MREINZ, board member of New Zealand Realtors Network and has held various industry leading roles over the years. Tim opened Property Brokers in 1986 and expanded to include a Feilding branch in 1987. As sole Director, the company expanded across the lower North Island reaching from Wanganui to the Hawkes Bay and from Taihape to Horowhenua. In 2006, he introduced a Regional Manager structure to the organisation, thus allowing day-to-day management of the business to be divested, which has led to expansion in the South Island and Waikato. Today, Tim oversees the financial management of the organisation as well as the planning and strategy of Property Brokers. He still prides himself on the personal relationships he has with the majority of the staff and the fact that anyone can contact him anytime. In 1995 Tim formed New Zealand Realtors Network with Colin Richardson from Richardson’s Real Estate in Coromandel, Neville Hunt from Lodge Real Estate in Hamilton and Richard Cashmore from Eve’s Real Estate in the Bay of Plenty. Launched as a viable alternative to the largely franchised base competitors, NZ Realtors Network is now the largest real estate referral group in New Zealand (based on sales value). Tim has served as Chairman of New Zealand Realtors Network and remains on the Board. Property Brokers and Tim Mordaunt have been active in the community from day one and view positive contributions to the areas we work in as one of the fundamental principles of the company. Tim is well known for his involvement in the local community. He was a member of the Manawatu branding committee and is a Trustee of Arohanui Hospice. Property Brokers have been major contributors to the Jets basketball, Turbo’s rugby, Centrepoint Theatre and the Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, as well as countless school and community groups. In 2003 he was awarded the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to the community.
