Malcolm Teesdale | Specialist Business Broker

Malcolm has an extensive background in business, having been a banker, a director of a number of advertising and marketing agencies and, most recently, a business consultant specializing in process re-engineering and customer satisfaction.

He has worked in NZ, the UK and Australia, advising leading companies. Being widely travelled, he has experienced the enormous range of accommodation, leisure and hospitality offerings, world-wide.

Malcolm has built, bought and sold several businesses – and many houses – so he understands what it means to sell something you have grown and love: or to take the considered step of buying into a new opportunity.

He looks forward to meeting with tourism professionals throughout the Waikato, Taupo & Central Plateau regions and matching the right people with the right opportunities.

Malcolm lives in leafy Cambridge with his life and business partner Melissa and their two beautiful little daughters.


“You can be sure that we will recommend you to anyone either buying or selling in the tourism industry.
We found your style of business extremely professional. Keeping the sale confidential throughout the process was most impressive.
Not once did we feel that either party was under pressure but there was never any delay in the shepherding.
We found you and Melissa charming people with excellent people skills and we wish you both a very successful future.
Many thanks and best wishes.”

“I would like to let you know that we are so grateful for all the extra help that you have given us throughout the purchase of Papa Aroha Holiday Park which is now our new home. We love it so much!
Graeme has just bought the boat off Pete today and we are going to have a fish tomorrow, so all is good with us!
Thanks again Melissa & Malcolm for all your help- we couldn’t have done it without you. Your company needs to know that you are an asset to them.”
Annita & Graeme Wykes, Purchasers, Papa Aroha Holiday Park

“In late 2009 I listed my tourist based property in Thames with Malcolm and Melissa Teesdale of Tourism Properties. It was a difficult Market with confidence in property at an all time low and the effects of the recession uppermost in buyers minds. Malcolm was convinced the property would sell to an overseas buyer and obtained a very cost effective listing on a UK based property website. I was frankly amazed at the amount of enquiry from this site and Tourism Properties own website that had a very high enquiry rate. Malcolm emailed me every week keeping me up to date with progress and advising me of potential purchasers they were working with. Both Malcolm and Melissa worked tirelessly to promote my property and in April 2010 a sale was confirmed to a couple from Australia. I am very happy with the end result and cannot speak highly enough of both Tourism Properties and in particular Malcolm and Melissa.”
