The company traces its history back to the 1970’s when Ian Telfer commenced private practice in Christchurch. In 1987 the company became Robertson Young Telfer (Southern) Limited linking with offices in Auckland, Hamilton, and Wellington. In 2000 TelferYoung was formed expanding to 8 offices from Whangarei to Christchurch. TelferYoung has subsequently expanded adding offices in Gore, Dunedin, Tauranga, North Shore and Rotorua. Our Timaru office, led by Ian Fairbrother, was added in 2014. The North Canterbury office in Rangiora was opened in 2016.

The Canterbury team prides itself on the long term relationships developed with a wide range of clients over 40 years. We have a strong presence across all property sectors with valuers specialising in property types as diverse as airports, schools, telecommunications, hospitals, conservation land and tourism. Our valuers frequently appear in Mediations, Expert Determinations, Arbitrations, the Environment Court, District Court and High Court.

In addition to our professional activities many of the team are also involved with developing the profession and community.
