Kim Franklin AREINZ

Partner 021 570 650

An Engineer by trade, Kim put his understanding of the design process and appreciation for Architecture to use with his first foray into the real estate industry as a salesperson/building consultant for a prominent Canterbury building and land development company from 1989/93. Recognising the many aspects of this industry, Kim gained invaluable experience working for two other large Real Estate firms since that time, earning wide acclaim and recognition as a top agent in the process. He established his own Ray White office in Christchurch’s central city ‘SOL Square’ which closed following the Canterbury earthquake of February 22nd, 2011.

Moving forward from this event, Kim took the opportunity to quantify his experience to date and share an idea with two like-minded individuals, a process which led to his founding involvement with Bellamy’s.

Throughout his career he derived the most satisfaction from understanding his client's requirements, be they property buyers or sellers, to methodically achieve their desired outcome without compromise. A simple philosophy, but one which is all too often forgotten when in the confines of a corporate system that focuses on the bottom line and not on the people.

Looking to establish a reputation that is based on integrity and honesty, Kim sees Bellamy’s as a unique opportunity to create a service that genuinely does focus on the client, offering the widest range of property-related services in a package designed to revolutionise the client experience that surpasses the general industry standard.

There is an opportunity to just do more for our clients concerning all associated and essential products and services related to property ownership. Without the restrictions of an outdated corporate line and minimal thinking, we basically outperform our competition by adding value that is simply beyond this industry’s expectation…

Mike Early

Partner 021 928 545

Mike has never been far away from real estate investment, with his first property purchase at an early age and a steady acquisition continuing to this day. Being involved with the rural machinery supply and maintenance sector for most of his working life, Mike saw an opportunity in rural bare land investments which has been the foray into large residential and rural subdivisions, project management, joint ventures and direct sales that keep him busy these days. Gaining his license to practice in the real estate industry directly was a natural progression. His wealth of knowledge in this area is a huge asset to the company, especially when maximising the property value for his clients.

I have a real understanding and appreciation for property investments, what makes them work and how to avoid mistakes. Buying and selling are only part the story. If it were that easy, everyone would be doing it. It takes courage, plus an appreciation and understanding of market opportunity, other essential associated services and products and a hands-on management approach to this process that transforms a good purchase into a great investment.
