Blair has been actively involved in real estate for more than 20 years. During this time he has successfully listed, marketed and sold many homes and sections.
Blair grew up in the local area and developed his selling and people skills by listening to and working alongside his father Walter Double who was the Founder of Bews Double & Wilson Real Estate Ltd. One of his keenest skills is the ability to read people and distil the essentials when assisting people to market and sell their property. He is not distracted by the many less important issues. His focus is helping vendors and buyers to meet their reasons for engaging in the selling or buying transactional process.
Every listing and sale is a highlight for Blair because he views each as a situation with unique clients with their particular needs and preferences. Blair is a people person and enjoys establishing a relationship of trust with vendors and buyers.
Blair Double, Eddie Winkel and Philip Whearty are joint owners of DoubleWinkel Real Estate Ltd. Together they have successfully enhanced and expanded the business founded by Blairs father, Walter Double. They have eight offices covering from Johnsonville right through to Levin.
Blair is a hands on business owner. He enjoys working at the coal face of listing and selling real estate. He has resisted the temptation to slip exclusively into management which has meant that he keeps in tune with the experiences and challenges of the team members.
Blair holds a BCA degree from Victoria University. He is a Real Estate Licensee (ARIENZ) & MREINZ.
Blair regularly attends real estate and other relevant conferences, keeps up to date with latest trends by reading journals and attending visiting speakers and seminars. In all of the years of attending these sessions he is certain that he and his team have the very best systems in place.
Throughout the years of working in a disruptive industry that is real estate Blair is fortunate to have had the unconditional support of his wife and 2 sons. All of this has been compensated for by Blair being able to attend school functions such as sport, dance and cultural activities and being involved in family occasions. This would not have been possible with a 9-5 job.
