John van Lierop
Sales Consultant

I have worked in real estate in Browns Bay for many years and have been widely recognised as ‘The Section Expert’ for most of that time. With a history working in Civil Engineering I am adept in liaising with architects, engineers, planners and council officers. I am very active in the commercial area of Browns Bay having sold many properties and am still, after all these years, one of the very few commercial agents based in Browns Bay. I am successful in identifying properties with development potential and instrumental in working from planning stage to selling many of Browns Bay’s well known apartment blocks so I have also become a bit of an apartment specialist. I have an excellent understanding of the Council District Plan and the Resource Management Act having spent considerable time working with the North Shore City Council to ensure my clients were provided with all relevant and necessary information. In fact I spent so much time at the Council that I was invited to put my name forward for council, which I did and was successfully chosen to be a councilor. This position allowed me to create on-going relationships with other councilors and council officers even though I no longer now sit on the Council. If you are looking for a real estate agent with the necessary experience, understanding and success in the Browns Bay commercial market then please call me.
