“Our team prides itself on being more than just real estate agents,” says Matthew Bourn, Managing Director at McConnell Bourn.

“We see ourselves as professional property marketers and negotiators, adding immense value to not only the way we market the home but the most important aspect – and, the end result – the sale or lease price.”

In a swiftly evolving industry, founders Matthew and Samantha Bourn believe it is important to maintain a competitive edge.

As one of the leading real estate agencies in the North Shore property market, McConnell Bourn is welcoming a new style and approach to property with the unveiling of their new brand.
“We have synonymously had good results and out-of-the-box thinking when it comes to marketing and selling/ managing property, but it’s time for us to raise the bar again,” explains Matthew.

“This time, we are moving into the next generation of real estate.”

The team is championing a fresh outlook on property that sells not only a home, but a lifestyle.

“We believe that if someone is buying or leasing a home, they are also buying a lifestyle here on the beautiful North Shore,” says Samantha.
“We want to take our clients on a journey, showcasing everything that their home and the area has to offer.”

The new brand will feature clean designs, a pastel colour palette and editorial style photography captured by our in-house photographer, Des Harris.

“It’s about showcasing what it is like to live in the home - the finer details, the ambience or how people interact with the space,” says Matthew.

The brand will also build social media, a blog and a lifestyle magazine to market not only properties but also industry trends and local businesses.

“Where are the best places to grab your coffee? What are the latest trends in home-styling? We hope to attract a following of locals interested in more than just property.”

The launch coincides with the opening of a head office in Gordon – designed to function as a workspace and a home-styled showroom.

“It will be a true showcase of the North Shore marketplace.”
