About Scott Borland

Scott is no stranger to the world of lifestyle and rural properties, as he grew up on a dairy farm in Scotland.

Horses have been a huge part of his life and he is himself a talented horseman with a deep understanding of the requirements for a good equestrian property.

He topped his year at Dundee University in Scotland, completing a BSc (Hons) in Financial Economics and Statistics. Seven years of retail management with ASDA in the UK gave Scott a wealth of experience dealing with staff, customers and suppliers.

Scott has represented both Scotland and Great Britain in the Prince Phillip Cup Equestrian Mounted Games. After moving to New Zealand in 2004, he coached New Zealand to win the World Championships in Mounted Games twice.

He also re-trained and re-homed over 100 racehorses, holds an NZTB trainers licence and has show-jumped to Grand Prix level.

Having worked in the equestrian world for so long, Scott has a solid database of clients throughout New Zealand and Australia.

Testimonials

"Scott Borland and Martin Lee made an exceptional team to sell my lovely home. Throughout the entire process they were truthful, responsive, accommodating and fun. With their solid experience and the strength of their relationships within the local community, they were able to negotiate some complex challenges and constantly adjusted to the varying demands of the sale which delivered a great outcome.”

Maureen McLaren

"Scott Borland has been awesome. He has gone above and beyond to help us and advise us throughout the whole experience. We are very grateful."

Paul and Nicola

After four months of pure agony with another real estate agent, the dashing young Scott Borland came into our lives. His honesty, professionalism and integrity are second to none. He worked tirelessly to achieve the result that we were beginning to think was just a pipe dream. He gave us new ideas on how to present our home for sale, even going the extra mile, offering to go shopping with us to buy the little knick-knacks to make it sparkle. Thank you, Scott, for your quick wit and infectious laugh, and for helping us with the end of our journey. We no longer need you as our real estate agent, but we have found a new friend.

John & Christine Haysom

Many thanks for ensuring the sale of our property was such an enjoyable experience. We really loved your drive and enthusiasm for ensuring our property was at its most saleable position. We did everything suggested – decluttered, used a staging company for furniture, and had the LIM report and valuation done so all the information was ready for potential buyers. We are sure all of this and your excellent, professional service led to the property being sold successfully at auction. Many thanks again and you will be the first salesperson we recommend to anyone considering selling a property.

A Miller & R Ellice

Scott was recommended to us by a family member when we had made the decision to sell our property. Throughout this process from preparing our property for sale to the sale of our property and after, Scott was with us all the way giving us his honest advice, encouragement and truly went the extra mile to get the best outcome possible. Scott has been the best salesperson and he will always be at the top of my list to call for any future property purchases or sales.

S Hawkes

Adrian and I had a long-term vision for our business. This meant buying more land and expanding our current facilities. We purchased more land which meant, in order to expand, we needed to sell our current home and some land. There was no doubt in our minds whom we would use. Scott was the man for the job. We ran our ideas past Scott and we all came up with a plan. The whole idea of selling your home is very daunting and sometimes stressful. Scott made this process so easy and manageable. If you want someone who puts their heart and soul into your investment then there is no one better than Scott. We had an absolute dream result with putting our home up for sale. If it were not for Scott's determination and drive for the best outcome possible, we would not be in the position we are today. He has now made all of our dreams come true. Thank you so much.

H & A Kettlety

We found Scott to be very caring and helpful with the marketing of our property. We spent quite a bit of time getting our house done up to an appropriate standard. We felt that Scott was excellent with the advice he gave. We trusted all his words of wisdom and followed his ‘formula’ to obtain a great outcome with our sale. We would (and have) thoroughly recommended Scott to others.

Wayne & Marlene Reed

Well, what can I say? Words are totally inadequate. If you want to sell or buy a property then you can do no better than to employ Scott. He is a man of integrity and he genuinely cares about all his clients. He will get the best price in the most easy and efficient transaction that you could wish for. I wish there were a few more people like Scott in this world of ours. Thank you Scott for all that you did. You went above and beyond.

Val Chamberlin

Alan and I have bought and sold many lifestyle properties over the years. When it came to selling our latest property, we pondered who to choose as our agent. It soon became obvious when I read Scott’s CV. Scott has always been a high achiever in all he has taken on board throughout his career. We were given a very comprehensive marketing appraisal and information pack. We chose not to go through the auction process and, within a matter of weeks, our property was sold. Even though our property was beautifully presented, it was the extra little attention to detail given by Scott that made the sale stress-free. At all times, Scott considered our expectations and worked for us. Scott was fun to work with and his enthusiasm was endless. He was always immaculate in his personal appearance and, when I think of Scott, the words integrity, honesty, enthusiasm and hard-working, amongst many more, come to mind. Sellers, if you want the best outcome for your property, choose Scott. There is no one out there like him.

Julie & Alan Smith

Scott was the first real estate agent I called. I had noticed ‘SOLD’ signs on properties he had listed in my area. On research, I saw he had an equestrian background and was selling a lot of his listings. After our first meeting, I knew he would put 100% effort into achieving the best possible result and so the journey began. Under Scott’s guidance, we transformed our home into a show place. There were three weeks of open homes and then a brilliant sale. It is quite remarkable how he makes the whole process enjoyable. He is always enthusiastic but very practical and positive. I am so grateful that I made the decision to go with PGG Wrightson Real Estate. It is easy to see why Scott has won awards early in his real estate career and I know he is certainly going from strength to strength. I would strongly recommend giving Scott a call to anyone wanting to list a property.

Kim Allfrey

We are writing to thank you for your efforts, your professionalism and the creative marketing of our home. As you know, we interviewed numerous other agents in order to pick the person that would best represent our interests. You truly shone above the rest in terms of professionalism and personality, and we had no second thoughts about trusting you with the sale of our beautiful home. We must say, however, we were still in for a pleasant surprise; you have really exceeded our expectations! You had a spectacular work ethic, a positive attitude and the willingness to try different things to sell our home. Your business-like manner, good humour, honesty and great advice made for an outstanding salesperson. You really listened and worked hard to build a trusting, strong relationship with us. We are going to truly miss your visits. Thank you so much for your hard work, dedication, guidance and, most of all, your unwavering support. You can rest assured that we will highly recommend your services to everyone we know. Please use this reference freely and also allow people to contact us to discuss your work should the opportunity arise. Choosing you turned out to be the best real estate decision we made. Again, we would like to thank you for everything! We will always count you as a good friend and spectacular agent.

Grant & Robyn Whisker

We chose Scott Borland to help us in the sale of our equestrian lifestyle block in Tamahere. We initially chose him because of his high profile in equine circles but his performance was better than any other real estate agent either of us has ever retained. Scott is totally passionate about real estate and delivering the best results for his clients. He made himself available to us whenever we needed to talk to him and was meticulous in his preparation of our marketing strategy. Scott is a pleasure to work with. He is respectful, patient and has a great sense of humour. Scott's work ethic and commitment to obtaining the best possible outcome were of the highest standard. We unreservedly recommend Scott to help anyone sell their lifestyle or rural property.

Peter & Katrina Duncan

Having decided that we wanted to sell our lifestyle property, we rang a local real estate agent. Three months of doom and gloom later, we decided that something had to change. After listening to the radio, we rang our local PGG Wrightson Real Estate agent. Martin Lee and Scott Borland from Cambridge and our local agent, Doug Wakelin, arrived to see me. Wow! What a great bunch of guys! They listened, they asked questions and told us truthfully what we thought was a reasonable price, and that they could sell for us. All the way through, they have delivered nothing but a positive attitude and comments. After only six weeks, they have SOLD our property at a price we were very happy with. Thank you to the PGG Wrightson Real Estate team.

M & H Withers

Scott Borland was a pleasure to work with, Scott made the process of selling our home painless. He was patient and hard-working at all times. He was able to work around our schedules and delivered a great service and fantastic sale result. Scott is very professional but also has a great sense of humour and was a pleasure to be around. We would be happy to work with Scott again in the future.

D & F Woodcock

My experience during the course of the sale of my property was less than pleasurable – that was until Scott Borland came along by way of introduction through Martin Lee, PGG Wrightson Real Estate, Cambridge. Martin suggested that Scott, who had recently started with him, look after the sale and purchase of my property and see how he would get on. As it would be over the three years that other agents had the place listed with them, I had seven couples through. Along came Scott – the first open home, he bettered this. I could not believe it! Scott kept the pace up until my place was sold – something I never thought would happen and I’d almost given up hope. The energy, warmth and honesty of this man, a real estate salesperson with a difference, is unbelievable and truly remarkable. Scott Borland puts his all into his work until he has a result for his client. He will not leave a stone unturned to find a way to attract the right customers to your property. I can honestly recommend Scott Borland to anyone who would like to sell or buy a property. Scott, I’m ever thankful that we met and that you sold my property. You made it stress-free and I have had the pleasure of your company at morning tea.
