Gary Wise

When it comes to connecting people and property, there is nothing Gary hasn’t done!

For the last 27 years, Gary has been involved in Mortgage Broking; Real Estate and Financial Planning, as well as a full time professional Rugby Referee with the NZRU. Gary is a very ‘worldly’ person, a doer, and is known around Hawke’s Bay for making things happen!!

Gary has a great ability to communicate with people from all walks of life. His skills learned whilst crafting his refereeing career internationally, taught him that not everyone communicates the same way. Just like rugby players, vendors, buyers and tenants need assistance ‘gluing’ the proposal together to get the result they desire, thus creating ‘win win’ outcomes for all involved.

Originally more residential focussed, due to starting his own Mortgage broking firm in 1995, Gary has now switched to a Commercial focus in his career.

In 2010 he added Wise Real Estate to the stable of Businesses he owned, and this capped off the list of financial services they were providing, making the task of buying a home and financing a home super easy. During this time, his business brokered over $200 million in lending and submitted over 1000 loan applications with a huge approval percentage ratio around the 98% bracket.

In 2014, Gary and his wife Karen, who is Canadian, decided to sell all their business entities and make the move for a life in Toronto, Canada. He returned in 2015 after setting up a ‘Kiwi style Bakery/Café there, and a year later sold that business to another Kiwi who had opened a 2nd franchise there with Gary.

On return to NZ, Gary sat more exams and leapt back into his passion for Commercial Real Estate. After a term with Bayleys Commercial and a brief stint at NAI Harcourts, he is now loving the specialist boutique agency environment that Gollins Commercial provides.
