Stephen Smith

Business Broker
Office: Wellington


LINK Wellington Top Marketer 2021

After 25 years of working in the London insurance market, I took the decision to look for an alternative lifestyle and moved to NZ in February 2015. I’ve settled in Seatoun with my kiwi wife and our son Monty. Where better to enjoy the views, the wildlife and the rugby?

I’ve volunteered at the SPCA working in the adult dog house and now play rugby for Wellington Axemen.

My insurance career gave me an eye for detail, and an ability to see the big picture; which I translated to home staging and sales as an aside in the UK.

Upon arriving in NZ I obtained my REA licence and started selling residential real estate.
Understanding risk, risk mitigation and business has led to me Business Broking.

I’m fully committed to helping people own their own successful business.


"We first met Steve in January when we decided to use LINK to sell the shop.
Steve was very well presented, gave us clear information re the process of selling and gave us confidence we had chosen the right person for the role.

Steve has helped a lot with the process by frequent contact through email and text.
He had a clear picture of the goal we had to achieve in finding the right person to buy.

He took a lot of pressure off us in the process and I was able to continue working without the worry about what was going on with the sale process.

I found Steve a pleasure to work with and feel very grateful that he was able to secure the sale of the business in such a professional and supportive way.
I would not hesitate to recommend Steve to anyone who is ready to sell their business.
It is at times a difficult and emotional journey but worth it in the end."
