TelferYoung North Canterbury

The North Canterbury office of TelferYoung (Canterbury) is based in Rangiora. The practice specialises in the geographical area north of the Waimakariri River and encompasses Waimakariri and Hurunui Districts.  Since September 2016, TelferYoung has incorporated the firm of North Canterbury Valuations.

The TelferYoung North Canterbury office opened in September 2016 and is located at 130A Percival Street in the heart of Rangiora.  This is a high profile first floor office on the corner of Percival and Queen Street, opposite Victoria Park and within walking distance of High Street.   

The opportunity to enhance  the coverage of North Canterbury by TelferYoung arose in 2016 with the acquisition of the long-standing and highly regarded property consultancy firm of North Canterbury Valuations.   Denis Milne is well known to local folk, being the principal of North Canterbury Valuations for over 30 years and a resident of Waikuku. Denis retired from TelferYoung in 2018.

The Rangiora team now comprises Nik Butler and Tina Summerfield, both experienced and highly regarded valuers. Nik lives on a rural lifestyle property at Sefton with his young family.  Valuing for over twenty five years, he has been part of the TelferYoung family since 2013.  Tina was warmly welcomed to the local office in January 2019 after practising with a Christchurch based firm since 2010. Tina resides in Rangiora, with strong ties to Sefton and Okuku where she grew up. 

Nik and Tina have an extensive range of property knowledge and expertise. They are able to deliver advice on residential, commercial and rural property, along with going concern and other specialised entities.  This includes rental assessments, insurance, compensation, dwelling and curtilage, trust transfers and mortgage lending assessments.

Having a committed valuation and advisory presence in the local North Canterbury market has wide ranging benefits for clients including increased market awareness and accuracy of advice which in turn leads to better solutions.  Nik and Tina can provide the expertise and professionalism of local valuers while drawing on the recognised benefits of TelferYoung.  This includes a comprehensive knowledge base, advanced valuation IT tools and robust research and reporting programmes.  

The North Canterbury practice is well supported by the wider TelferYoung Canterbury group which has a large central city located office in Christchurch and an office Timaru. 

Our Christchurch based valuers also have a close association with North Canterbury.  Chris Stanley is on the board of TelferYoung Ltd and is our national group chairman and local director.  Chris was educated in Rangiora and continues to have strong family and business ties to Woodend, Rangiora and Amberley.  Hayden Doody is another Christchurch based director who is a proud born and bred Oxford lad.  Hayden has a wide ranging commercial client base in Christchurch and North Canterbury.
