Western Australia
"Western Australia is such a diverse and remarkable state – our sunniest capital city, Perth is a corporate powerhouse. We have ancient forests and reefs, the whitest beaches, award-winning wines, rugged desert landscapes. So many worlds for visitors to explore. What better business to be in than tourism and accommodation?"

Originally born in Christchurch, New Zealand, Blair spent his youth enjoying the warmer climes of Far North Queensland, where his parents operated caravan parks and management rights holiday apartments.

Having always had an interest in property, Blair gained his Bachelor of Business, majoring in Property, at the University of Queensland, and then began practising as a licensed property valuer in Far North Queensland.

An early ‘midlife crisis’, aged just 25, drew Blair to the windsurfing mecca of Perth to pursue what he now says was an “unrealistic dream” of becoming a windsurfing superstar.

A chance meeting with a business broker in the early 2000s led to a successful career shift from property valuations into business sales and going concern business valuations. Blair is now the Managing Director of two related business: Perth Business Valuations and Business Sales (WA), which provide separate yet synergistic services to business owners across Western Australia.

Blair is recognised among the WA legal fraternity as an expert going concern business valuer for a range of legal and financial matters. These valuation skills and experience go hand-in-hand with his growing niche business brokerage, which primarily focuses on the sale of accommodation and tourism properties.

Having married a West Aussie girl from Kalgoorlie, Blair and his family of three children have put down roots in the WA sand. Now in collaboration with ResortBrokers and based in Perth, he brings outstanding skills and experience to bear for the benefit of business and property owners across WA’s accommodation and hospitality sector.
