Before engaging in a transaction of such magnitude as property, it’s a good idea to know who you are dealing with.

I am a local lad, my family moved to Whangamata in 1975 after holidaying here since the early sixties. My parents owned and operated the local bookshop until 1996. I went to Waihi College through the 70’s (everyday by bus) and later gained a diverse background in engineering before entering into real estate after the crash in 1987. No one told me about the crash….. I was so green.

I have loved every minute of living in Whangamata, so you can be assured when it comes to local knowledge of the area, if I don’t know about it or haven’t heard about it, then it probably hasn’ t happened.

As part of my commitment to the community I have been involved in many things over the years. To mention a few, I was the Scout leader for a few years, the 13th grade soccer coach, and also involved in the Whangamata theatre society and the local lodge. I’ve also been part of the Whangamata Trail Bike Club & am currently on the committee of the 4 x4 Club. My favourite and most rewarding pass time has been as a bass player in many local bands over the years. You’ve probably seen me at Beach Hop somewhere in the back of a band.

I have many interests, one of which is bush walking and tramping. This gives me a strong appreciation of the important things in life and the guardianship of our natural coastal areas.

Because of my local knowledge, connections, and appreciation of this great area I am focused on assisting you in all facets of the real estate experience. Buying or selling a property can be a very stressful undertaking, it is however my belief that with the right advice and attention to detail that this needn’t be the case.

My aim as a Real Estate Salesperson is to guide you through the process of buying or selling your home or property and ensuring it is the exciting experience it should be.

Testimonials

FABULOUS result yesterday thank you Gordon.

We employed Gordon Turner of First National to sell our property at Whangamata.

Being a long term Auckland real estate agent, I was particularly picky but decided to sit back and let it all happen in his capable hands. CAPABLE is the word…..calm, relaxed, honest, regular with reports and texts, and the all important component “no rubbish/cow poo”.

We appreciated the effort that was put into this – it wasn’t a easy sell at this particular time, and the weather had been against us a lot for open homes, but the result was amazing, way over the top of what we expected.

Thank you Gordon.

Jo - August 2021

No Stress Thanks To Gordon

We were very happy with the price we got for our property.

Rebecca - February 2022

Totally Recommend Gordon

I totally recommend Gordon and his office partner Carol. He was so easy to deal with, his communication really good and the way he worked with our tenants in regards to the inspections and open homes times was fantastic.

He was too the point, straight up with his opinion and bang on gauging and assessing the market at the time.

Would definitely use again.

Sharlene - March 2022

I am totally satisfied with all Gordon & colleague Carol did for me.

Rosemary - April 2022

Excellent service, topped with good old kiwi, know how, can do attitude.

Gordy sold our beachfront property under unusual but not uncommon circumstances.

Throughout the process he (and his company) showed absolute professionalism across the board.

Like a true kiwi, he rose to the occasion whenever obstacles presented themselves, his local knowledge and finger on the pulse of the market we sold in, was indelible.

His rambunctious confidence and ability to call a spade, a spade, was very appreciated personally.

I would highly recommend Gordon (and First National) to anyone.
