We’re a small, professional and dedicated team with decades of property and management experience behind us.
Terry Bolitho – Owner and Manager
Bolitho’s extensive history in property management, ownership, development and his background as a builder has allowed him incredible insight into the industry and its inner-workings. Property has been part of Terry’s life since his teens. Operating his own building business at the age of twenty, he gained invaluable experience and got a taste for the industry early. After becoming a landlord at 22, Terry began to grow his portfolio. Working with both residential and commercial investments, he realised that management systems needed to be put in place to run his business efficiently and effectively. It is these systems that Bolitho Property Management uses to this day, and the reason they are one of the best property management agencies for owners who want the most from their investment.
Shona Bolitho – Owner and Office Manager
Like Terry, Shona has been involved in residential property investing for over 28 years and has been with Bolitho Property Management from its inception.
Undertaking day to day administration, financial and accounting duties such as reconciling landlord accounts and completing twice monthly disbursements, Shona utilises her attention to detail skills and background in the banking industry. Being a numbers and details oriented person, Shona takes great satisfaction in getting things right and ensuring that every detail is covered.
Julian Kett- Business Development Manager
Julian is the man to talk to if you have questions about property management, would like an appraisal, or simply a chat about having your property managed. He is also here to assist our valued landlords in making sure their experience with us is the best it can be.
He has a background in finance, sales, marketing and business development. With several years in residential real estate sales he brings a wealth of knowledge about all things property. Outside of work, Julian is a passionate sports fan, and loves spending time outdoors with his family walking, kayaking and cycling around the beautiful Nelson region.
Julian would love to talk to you about the rental market in general or about the five points of difference that will give you the confidence to entrust Bolitho’s with your property management.
John brings strong people management skills and a sunny disposition to Bolithos after a career in education/consumer electronics management.
With strong family ties to the region John settled here in 2017 having decided to live where he wanted to live – bye bye Auckland! An enthusiast of motorhoming, kart racing, and photography, John’s a great asset to the Bolitho team.
Sandy Van Staden – Property Manager
Sandy has years of experience dealing with people. She came to us after running a busy dental practice for many years,where her people management skills were equaled only by her ability to time manage and her great systems.

Sandy is professional at all times yet approaches each situation with energy and optimism. She regularly receives emails of thanks and acknowledgement for her efforts.
Annitta Hodgkinson – Property Manager

The skills that she brings to the role after working extensively with people from many different cultures enables Annitta to communicate clearly and with respect.
