Brendan joined the Goodwins family business in 2017 to work alongside his father Ashley as Director and sister Catherine as Managing Director.
With years of experience in commercial property law in NZ, Australia, and the UK, followed by a commercial real estate sales and leasing career in Australia, Brendan’s skills have complemented and bolstered Goodwins’ leadership team.
Since joining the family business, he has built a reputation as the top Business Development Manager agent in Auckland, winning the REINZ Business Development Manager of the Year, nationally, in 2019 & 2020.
Brendan’s passion for building enduring relationships and broad networks has paid dividends for his clients. He commonly works with high-net-worth owners and tenants, including international sports, business and film personalities and owners of landmark properties.
In 2021, Brendan’s drive to seek out new opportunities for his clients secured Goodwins an exclusive partnership with America’s Cup challenger, American Magic. This resulted in 131 tenancy agreements with America’s Cup sailors, executives, and owners for Goodwins’ Auckland-based clients. During The Cup some properties fetched up to $30,000 a week. He has also fostered relationships with major film studios Warner Bros, Amazon Studios and Netflix, housing film stars and crew in the homes of his clients.
Goodwin’s is by name and nature, all about family, for Brendan. His wife Aleina works alongside him as Goodwins’ Operations/HR Manager. Aleina and Brendan live in Mt Albert with their two young children.
From 2022 Brendan is dedicating his new-market expertise, professional ethic, and his passion for building strong relationships to Goodwins’ sales division. He is focused on seeking out and pursuing opportunities that produce exceptional results for Goodwins’ clients.
