Hadley van Schaik and Gerard Bligh are ranked the Number One Duo for New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty and offer their clients a first class Real Estate service. The two have an unmatched level of enthusiasm, thorough market knowledge and always strive to exceed their clients’ expectations.

Born and raised in Invercargill, Hadley has been interested in Real Estate from a young age. A third generation agent, his father Neil was in the industry in Invercargill for over 30 years. After completing a Law degree and Commerce (Accounting) degree at the University of Otago and spending time living abroad, Hadley began his Real Estate career teaming up with Gerard Bligh. Supported by their Client Services Manager Leah Fitzpatrick, they execute their work with exacting attention to detail, striving to achieve outstanding outcomes for clients.

In their first three years selling Real Estate as a partnership, Hadley and Gerard sold over 170 properties totaling over $279 million dollars. They have set many new street and neighbourhood records and have built a loyal client base of happy Vendors and Purchasers.

Regardless of the value of a transaction, Hadley and Gerard ensure all clients receive the same excellent service. Their strengths include superior marketing, strong communication and building genuine relationships with their clients.

When you meet Hadley and Gerard, you’ll realise they are not your typical ‘salesmen’ - they’re two passionate, honest and driven individuals who live and breathe Real Estate.

When Hadley is not busy with Real Estate, you will find him enjoying a coffee from a local cafe, at the gym or outdoors exploring the beautiful walks and trails on offer in our region. Rest assured, his phone is either in hand or never far away! He is a proud supporter of Meals on Wheels.

Hadley has a strong property, legal and business background and would be delighted to assist you with your Real Estate needs. Buying or selling, please make contact with Hadley.
