With a double degree in Law and Commerce, Hadley brings a wealth of knowledge to the team at New Zealand Sotheby's International Realty.

A born and bred Southlander, Hadley has had a strong interest in the property market from a young age. Being a third generation real estate agent, Hadley's passion for the industry and growing up in a real estate family meant it was a natural progression for him to pursue this exciting and rewarding career – real estate is in his blood!

Having travelled extensively and lived abroad, Hadley is proud to call Queenstown home and truly believes it is the most beautiful place in the world.

Working alongside Gerard Bligh, the two bring a modern, enthusiastic and down to earth approach to Queenstown real estate. They have a successful track record selling Queenstown wide, setting multiple new street records and building a loyal client base of happy vendors and purchasers. They are a powerhouse of a team dedicated to delivering first class customer service that consistently goes above and beyond client’s expectations.

Hadley was awarded Rookie of the Year for New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty in 2018 and was also placed in the top five licensees throughout the country for 2018. Hadley and Gerard were recently awarded the Number 1 brokers for the Queenstown/Arrowtown offices and Number 4 for NZ (all offices) for 2019.

When Hadley is not busy with Real Estate, you will find him out and about in the community, running along many of the Queenstown Trails or fishing on Lake Wakatipu. He is a proud supporter of Meals on Wheels.

With a strong property, legal and business background, Hadley delivers a service that consistently goes above and beyond client’s expectations.

Hadley looks forward to hearing from you.


With a reputation of delivering results for their clients, we switched our property marketing campaign to Gerard Bligh & Hadley van Schaik and they promptly delivered an excellent outcome for us.

From the initial consultation, strategy, online presentations, client communication, attention to detail and final contract – everything was handled in an extremely professional and courteous manner.

For anyone looking to deal in the Queenstown (and in  particular Kelvin Heights)  real estate market, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend these 2 excellent agents.

Thank you both and we look forward to working with you again in the future.

We had a beautiful classic home for sale in a favoured part of the Wakatipu. To our frustration, another agency failed to attract the special clients needed, then along came two agents Gerard Bligh and Hadley van Schaik from Sotheby's. They were 'knights in shining armour' - full of enthusiasm and with a great client list, who within a very short time sold our house for its full value. We cannot praise Sotheby's enough.

"We had the pleasure to work with Gerard Bligh and Hadley van Schaik recently when we put our house on the market. We were expecting the whole process to be quite long and stressful but Gerard and Hadley truly made our experience stress free and ...our house sold within two weeks.

Throughout the process there was great communication, both Gerard and Hadley were very professional and easy to deal with. Both our agents were really hard working and every time they said they would do something it was done promptly.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Gerard and Hadley to anyone who are interested on listing their house."
