Logan Stone was established in October 1986 by Roger Stone and Gerard Logan. The establishment of Logan Stone was based on the need to take client service and professionalism in the valuation and property sector to a new level. Logan Stone’s continued key focus today is to provide sound advice and to ensure service standards and professionalism are paramount.
Logan Stone has evolved since 1986 with Boyd Gross joining the small team in 1989 and becoming a Director in 1992 and Frank Spencer joining the team in 1993 and becoming a Director in 1995. Jay Sorensen, who joined the firm from university in 2008, became a director in June 2015.
The Logan Stone team now comprises 4 Registered Valuers, 2 Graduate Valuers and a management accountant and our key support team.
During the journey we and our clients have benefited from other key staff who have moved on to new challenges and experiences both within New Zealand and Overseas. Logan Stone is proud of its record in training graduates and providing a pathway to Registered status.
Now recognised as a leading practice within the property industry, Logan Stone has focused on developing expertise in a broad range of property and work types and has provided a framework for professional and personal development to all staff. As a result our team has honed its core valuation skill set and developed expertise in areas of specific interest and activity. Valuation remains the core activity from which all services stem.
In addition to professional philosophies, Logan Stone’s key values are those of independence and maintaining confidences.
As part of Logan Stone’s diverse skills we have assisted with achieving resource consents for client developments, assisted in regional planning and strategy and land uses, undertaken economic modelling for primary sector crops and canneries, and identified reuse opportunities for existing facilities, such as the Tomoana site for Heinz Watties.
Logan Stone’s business philosophies are based around keeping matters simple while being objective and lateral when considering client assignments.
