Simon Upperton was raised in Kerikeri before entering the corporate world in Auckland, London & Sydney. After a 20 year international banking career Simon returned home to his beloved Bay of Islands and started a new career in real estate. Always wanting to establish his own business after two years with Bayleys Kerikeri, Simon bought the Franchise rights to Borders Northland in November 2017. Since then Borders has gone from strength to strength selling a variety of properties from sections, lifestyle blocks, residential houses and stunning waterfront properties. Properties in the Far North have such variety and some spectacular locations, its a joy to introduce buyers to properties in the Far North.
