SHAUN + LIAM
Shaun and Liam make up one of Christchurch’s most trusted and solid residential real estate teams. Both joining Bayleys in mid-2017, they quickly established their presence, attaining the Top 5% listings of Bayleys Sales People 2020/2021. One a former primary school teacher and the other a former intelligence analyst, their integrity and reliability shine through. Combine this with their proven expertise in targeted marketing techniques and extensive connections across the Christchurch residential property market, and they are the obvious team to call for a free, no-obligation appraisal of your property.
For Shaun, real estate is all about the long game. His philosophy centres around doing what is best by his clients and trusting that, by doing so, it will stand both him and them in good stead for the future.
Doing what’s best means putting his strengths to work, by skillfully marketing a property to an identified target market and then employing his well-crafted negotiation skills at the pointy end of the transaction. Shaun attributes his strong negotiation, people and organisational skills to the time he spent working as a primary school teacher. It’s his ability to relate to people from all walks of life which makes him so easy-going and approachable – while also being driven by a strong work ethic and a professional mind-set.
This special combination of experience saw him quickly rise to the Top 5% of Bayleys sales people, nationwide, by 2019/2020. Sellers have full confidence in entrusting their number one asset to his skills and experience. Buyers quickly trust his honest advice and quality service.
Shaun says: “I love getting to know my clients; taking the time to understand their motivations, learn about the challenges they’re facing, and gain a genuine insight into their goals and aspirations. That information allows me to tailor an approach specifically for their needs, aimed at not only achieving the best outcomes, but at making the journey a smooth and enjoyable one as well.”
When away from work, Shaun loves nothing more than spending time at home with his wife and daughters or loading up the car boot and taking off on a family adventure. He’s also actively involved in the local community, a passionate sportsperson, and enjoys a wide range of interests and hobbies.

Highly relatable and down to earth, Liam understands that real estate is a “people industry”. His energy and enthusiasm towards clients is infectious, and enable him to build longlasting relationships of trust.
Underpinning this is a remarkable intelligence and knowledge of the bigger picture of how New Zealand operates, from his previous role as Intelligence Analyst with the New Zealand Police. It was his role to contribute to harm reduction and prevent and disrupt criminal activity by employing a full range of analytical and critical thinking techniques – which makes him one very smart cookie. Liam now applies these advanced skills in analysis, problem-solving and negotiation on behalf of his real estate clients, giving him the ability to handle all situations with a holistic approach. This special combination of experience saw him quickly rise to the Top 5% of Bayleys sales people, nationwide, by 2019/2020.
Christchurch born and bred, when entering the real estate industry it was important to Liam to return from Wellington to Christchurch and be part of its rebuild and development. A strong appreciation of the Christchurch and Canterbury lifestyle was also a major drawcard. Always one to pay it forward, Liam has been a Lifeguard for Surf Life Saving NZ since 2001. Outside work, he and his wife share the love of an active lifestyle, good food and wine, and the banter that ensues with a Crusader’s fanatic living with a Hurricanes tragic. A city-slicker at heart, he frequents his in-laws’ farm when he can, where he is infamous for his ‘fish-out-of-water’ look but gets stuck in nonetheless.
Doing the best by people is what Liam prides himself on. Comments such as “… this is absolute testament to your integrity and decency” mean far more to him than a flashy suit and a shiny car.
