For more than twenty five years Kelvyn Coffey has been involved in selling tourism properties. Over that time, with ongoing growth and investment in domestic and international tourism, the industry has changed dramatically. It is no coincidence that the demands of the market together with the expectations of existing and prospective operators in tourism accommodation businesses, have also changed. To meet these demands and expectations Coffeys have adopted a simple philosophy – 

  • To the highest standard to provide our clients with the benefit of our market knowledge, our operational experience, our brokerage and advisory services.

  • To maintain a reputation for integrity and professionalism.

Coffeys specialise in the business of tourism property brokerage. We understand that the sale and purchase of tourism property can be complex given we are not only dealing with real estate, but most often the livelihood and the home of our clients. Property is only part of the transaction and we believe we add value, simply because tourism property is the only business we handle. Our business and the team within the business, has been developed to bring all the skills and experience we need to serve our clients best.

It is true Coffeys do not list every tourism property that is for sale. Our experience over many years has proven that for properties to change hands, it is important both for the business or investment to be a sound and viable proposition and, for vendors to be genuine and motivated. Coffeys only list tourism properties that meet these criteria. Accordingly we list properties that we feel privileged to promote and, we are not afraid to turn away possible listings that do not meet these criteria. In doing so we believe we are providing the best and most professional service for all parties.

The way Coffeys operate is we believe, quite distinctive –

Team – When you make contact with Coffeys you make contact with a team who work with and for each other. Each individual brings complementary skills and experience to the business and as a client you have access to all that we have.

Qualification – At Coffeys, we appreciate the value of our clients’ time and resources. We are very aware of the need to understand fully the requirements and expectations of our clients. Accordingly we will go to some lengths to qualify both our vendors and our prospective purchasers. It is in the interests of all parties to focus on those prospects that most effectively lead to positive outcomes. 

Measure – The true measure of a successful outcome is where parties achieve their objective with the least possible difficulty. We strive to build relationships with clients who come back to engage our services again and again. Satisfied clients are the measure Coffeys use.

Relationship – Tourism is a people industry and we embrace the importance of relationships in our business. To that end Coffeys contact with our clients does not simply end when a sale is completed. We have contact with many of our clients well before and long after they buy or sell a tourism property. If this is what our clients want, that is what we are happy to do.

As you read about the people within Coffeys you will see we bring together a complementary range of skills and experience. Not only does this combined expertise meet the needs of our existing clients, but also we expect it meets the needs our business has for the future within this industry.

Having established a solid reputation and business base within the South Island motel and tourism property industry since 1984, we now deliver our excellent service throughout New Zealand. We believe we have established and refined the way we do business, and that business approach has stood the test of time.

We place considerable value on the many clients and colleagues who have contributed to our success over recent years. We look forward to strengthening those relationships in future and we welcome the opportunity to assist new clients for the first time.
