Phil Gully joined the Harcourts Nelson team in 2002, with a wealth of sales and management
experience under his belt after 28 years in broadcasting.
The sixth generation Nelsonian left the region when he was 18 to pursue a career in television
and radio broadcasting around New Zealand, returning to the region for his dream job as general
manager of Radio Nelson.
However the avid outdoorsman was keen for a lifestyle change and decided to escape the
corporate life with a switch to real estate in effort to free up more time for boating, fishing and
Work ethics picked up during his broadcasting career, such as the importance of hard work and
providing a consistently high standard of customer service have proven to be equally valuable in
real estate, with his high standards and the Harcourts sales process ensuring he achieves the
best possible results for his clients.
Since joining Harcourts Nelson, the father of two has also enjoyed the opportunity to spend more
time with his wife of almost 40 years, Anna and their two children and grandchildren.
The couple are as passionate about community as they are family, and have been involved with
Rotary for more than 20 years, including a stint as co-governors of the top of the south Rotary
Group. Phil has also been president of the Nelson Chamber of Commerce and a committee
member of the Wakapuaka Taiapure.
