Having worked full time in Real Estate for nearly 30 years Philip Searle has knowledge of the profession and experience that only comes with time on the job and deals negotiated.

Specialising in Commercial and Industrial as well as business sales. He knows pretty well everything that is going on in the region in which he works, which makes him the right person to be dealing with.

"Gisborne is a great place to work and live. Lovely beaches, great fishing, great weather and friendly people. Having support from the LJ Hooker group with such a vast array of branch offices makes it a lot easier to do business. We live in a global world now" he says.
