"To Whom It May Concern


My name is Teri, I am now a Motelier in the South Island – thanks to Conor McEvoy and Resort Brokers.


Conor sold a motel for me recently in the Bay of Plenty.


I found Conor to be very personable with not only myself, but also, prospective buyers when he was showing the property. He was efficient in supplying any information requested, always returned my calls and answered email queries in a timely manner.


I found his feedback on prospective purchasers invaluable, it enabled me to assess a buyer’s interest and ability to purchase, he was able to tell me who was real and who was just



If you are looking to sell an accommodation business and are looking for a great agent, I would not hesitate to recommend both Conor, and Resort Brokers.

They were supportive and easy to deal with, which made selling my business easy".



Pohutu Lodge, Rotorua

"Conor McEvoy acted as the agent when we were purchasing the business of Pohutu Lodge in Rotorua. He introduced the property to us and answered our concerns in a detailed and prompt manner. He worked with us to analize the pros and cons of this transaction in a nieutral position, from where he showcased his expertise as an agent specialising in the hospitality industry. He was patient and instructive when negotiations were in progress, this allowed us to consider further planning after the purchase. We were satisfied and very grateful for his performance."

Shane Lloydd

Copthorne Resort Hokianga

"In August 2018, as owner of the Copthorne Hotel and Resort Hokianga, I made the decision to sell the business and enter into a lease arrangement for the property. The sale included accommodation, food and breakfast. In addition I lease the adjoining property with accommodation units including the recently constructed 10 villas trading as The Heads. As part of the arrangement, I wanted to retain The Heads but have the purchaser run them under a management agreement. This was quite complex, with responsibility for bookings, cleaning and other day to day operations being the purchaser responsibility, all done on a revenue share basis.


We engaged Auckland based Resort Brokers Limited who assigned Kamal Sharma to broker a deal. Kamal is a very skilled operator and was pro-active in agreeing on a plan to get the property out there and within a month had introduced the business to 12 interested parties. One of the initial ones, ended up as the purchaser. The process dealing with other parties over the next couple of months required Kamal's vast experience to keep those early candidates interested.

Kamal's knowledge and communications are superb and I was constantly kept informed of viewing arrangements and progress with each following the inspection. He organised on­ site meetings and provided professional support through the sale process. In addition he offered sound advice in establishing a workable management agreement and ensuring interested parties understood their responsibilities.


I am extremely thankful to Kamal for the proficient way he managed the process."

Martin Van Rijswijk

Kingswood Manor Motel

"We wanted to write and express our gratitude to Kamal for the guidance and advice that he provided throughout the process of marketing our motel, We felt confident that he had a good understanding of the accommodation industry and how best to market our business.

He offered calm, practical and honest advice at the right time. We were impressed by his network of interested buyers, and by his ability to maintain strong lines of communication throughout the marketing process, and up until and after the point of sale".

"We bought Kingswood Manor Motel through Kamal. He guided us with a process thoroughly as we were first time buyer. We recommend Kamal strongly. Thanks a lot, Kamal".


Bay Adventurer

 "We were approached by Kamal to see if we were interested in selling our Bay of Islands operation.  After some discussion, we considered that the option Kamal presented to us would be able to provide security, continuity and opportunity for our staff.  This was important to us as they have been key in the development of the business.   Kamal progressed the proposal professionally and provided his assistance in the various dealings throughout the transaction.  Kamal demonstrated his understanding of the backpacker business sector which, to those involved, would appreciate the differences from other forms of tourism accommodation".

From our first contact, we found Kamal to be very professional, knowledgeable, and engaging. Buying a business is an emotional roller coaster and requires patience, understanding, and experience and this is what we experienced during each and every contact we had with Kamal. We highly recommend Kamal to anyone considering buying or selling their business.

To whom it may concern

Gordon McGregor has helped Lisa and I fulfill our dream and we are so happy to have met him.  We saw an advertisement for the sale of the Whitianga Hotel and Salt Restaurant and Bar and made contact with him.  Gordon met us on site with all documents prepared and his gentle negotiation skills meant that we are able to put the business under contract.  The deal was not easy to conclude and Gordon worked professionally diligently with us to ensure a positive outcome.  We are now ensconced in our new business and totally enjoying the experience thanks to Gordon.  We would highly recommend Gordon to you if you are looking to buy or sell a business.  Lisa and I would like to think that our association will lead to a long-term friendship.

I have nothing but the highest praise and commendations for Gordon McGregor and Resort Brokers.  From start to finish it was a professional partnership, with open communication and correspondence meaning I was always part of the process.  I am under no illusion that I would never have achieved my sale without Gordon.  I would strongly suggest to anyone who’s serious about selling their business and achieving the best result possible to use the expertise.

I have dealt with Resort Brokers on a number of occasions including the purchase of our latest business. We found Allister Simpson great to deal with. We told him where we wanted to go, what we wanted to do,  and he duly obliged in finding us a suitable business. Quite simple really!
