  • AREINZ DipRE

Chris is almost better known in Wellington as a former journalist in radio and television. He left the media in 1986 to work with NZ icon Sir Robert (Bob) Jones at Robt. Jones Investments as that company’s Property Manager, with responsibility for NZ, Australia, Canada & the USA. This laid the foundation for his knowledge of commercial property in all facets. He and Sir Robert remain close friends and fish together regularly. Chris catches the bigger ones.

He has been in Agency since 1988, principally at Colliers International. He has been Colliers top producing broker in NZ and has attended Colliers training in Baltimore and Prague. He has served two terms as President of the Property Council of NZ (Wellington branch) and two terms as President of the Porirua City Chamber of Commerce. He was a founder of North Wellington Life Education Trust and is a member of the Rotary Club of Wellington. In 2015 he launched Gollins Commercial Ltd to provide enhanced agency services through exceptional service and marketing. He is passionate about his company exceeding client’s expectations.

Chris’s greatest strength is innovation. He has conceived of many transactions and developments, firstly recognising an opportunity, identifying a location then convincing investors, vendors, local authorities etc.

Directly opposite the internationally renowned Museum Hotel & Apartments - 100m from the sparkling new Wellington Convention Centre - Field & Green's (50-seat) location could hardly be improved. But retirement eventually calls for all. So no more of the fab menu; regulars at the kitchen/bar; 'Capital identities' sorting issues - at least for a little while.
