By any standards, Brendan Ryan is a consistent, high performing salesperson, qualifying as a top achiever over numerous years. With two decades of experience in the industry, his efforts throughout his real estate career have been highly recognised.

Residential and Lake Properties have always been Brendan’s passion, and are a natural fit for him. Residing at Lake Rotoiti for the past 20 years, Brendan has an extensive knowledge about the market, an impressive portfolio of sold properties and a clear understanding of the amenities and the attraction of living at the Lake.

The opportunity to be part of the New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty team prompted a spark of motivation for Brendan to take the next step in his career, putting a focus on the unique and special properties presented by the world’s largest and most prestigious luxury real estate brand. He looks forward to continuing his outstanding success rate with the firm.

Alongside real estate, Brendan enjoys taking advantage of everything the Rotorua District offers, particularly being outdoors, mountain biking, spending time with friends and family and boating on the Lake.


Just a quick note to thank you for all your hard work and expertise when it came to selling our much-loved holiday home at Lake Rotoiti. It was a big decision for us, and you made the experience a stress free and enjoyable one.  Your communi...cation and follow up with feedback from prospective purchasers after all visits were impeccable, as was your detailed weekly reports.  At all times we were confident that you had our best interests at heart and that you worked hard in achieving a great result.
Working in the industry ourselves we had extremely high expectations of how this process should flow and we have to say without a doubt you were brilliant.  Auction Day went without a hitch and your understanding on who were our best bidders was spot on.  So, again a big thank you to yourself and please pass on the same to the Sotheby's team for achieving a fabulous result.
