Last year, we began writing a series of “Meet the Agent” blog posts, so that you could get to know your Bayleys Marlborough team members. We believe these articles will help you feel comfortable that you’re selecting the right agent to sell your property. Our Bayleys Marlborough family continues to grow, and today we’d like to introduce you to one of our newest team members Rodger Jones.
Rodger may be new to Bayleys Marlborough, but he’s no stranger to this wonderful region we call home… He’s been holidaying in the Queen Charlotte Sound since his honeymoon in 1980! A permanent move from Christchurch, means that Rodger is now based in the Bayleys Marlborough Picton office and is in his element pursuing a new career whole-heartedly centred around two of his passions, people and property.
Prior to working in real estate, Rodger owned a successful panel-beating business in Christchurch for 25 years. Following this he worked as a property developer where he became very familiar with the Resource Management Act, engineering and the consent processes. This experience together with his love of Marlborough led Rodger to move to his holiday home in the Queen Charlotte Sound where he rebuilt the family bach. Rodger’s background in business, property development and building, along with his outgoing personality, has ensured that he has very quickly and successfully grabbed his real estate reins!
Rodger specialises in listing residential property around Picton, however, with his thorough knowledge of the beautiful Marlborough Sounds, Sounds properties are also very much on his radar.
Asked for his number one piece of advice for vendors, Rodger replies, “Trust your agent!” He adds that each agent at Bayleys gets the support of the entire Bayleys team, with everybody working towards the best possible outcome for the vendors.
When Rodger’s not selling property you’ll find him spending time with family and friends and relaxing… No doubt in the Marlborough sounds!
