Julian Brown (REINZ) - Having grown up in Queenstown, Julian Brown has amassed more than 40 years of local knowledge and experience within the Queenstown area.
Julian is founding Director of New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty and secured the Sotheby’s International Realty master franchise for New Zealand in 2005, with our first office opening in Queenstown. Since then we have opened additional offices spanning throughout the length of New Zealand.
Julian’s entire working life has been involved in sales, originally involved in the ski industry as a partner in New Zealand’s leading ski shop; Brown’s Ski Shop, then moving into the residential Real Estate industry in 1997. Now with over 15 years’ experience in mid-to-high end residential property sales, Julian works full-time with vendors and purchasers in all sectors of the market.
Starting out Julian was originally involved with several large-scale projects in Auckland for four years including Omaha Beach, Princes Wharf, Viaduct Waterfront, Soho, The Met, Uni-Lodge and the Sands, to name but a few. Since moving back to Queenstown Julian has been involved in many of Queenstown’s most significant sales including land, apartments, homes, and country properties.
On a day to day basis Julian is a dedicated salesperson working alongside both vendors and buyers, makes regular international sales trips to Sotheby’s International Realty offices throughout the world, and has spent many years travelling throughout different continents, building up a truly comprehensive database.
Julian’s passion for real estate is all-encompassing; a company owner, married with three young children, a former New Zealand Ski Champion in Alpine Skiing, raced professionally on the Japan Pro Tour and being a World Cup Ski Coach he understands the demands of today.
Working with a key global network of clients and highly qualified buyers, Julian offers a professional, personal and discreet service.
