About Us

About Erskine + Owen

Erskine + Owen was born out of a dilemma. Both directors, Alan and Lisa, had rich business backgrounds with plenty of experience and a love for property. For several years these two passions were operating in isolation, until they had the idea to unite the two. So they combined their financial and business experience with their experience with property to offer a professional and, ethical property acquisition solution.

I’ve grown up with property. My Grandfather William Erskine Richardson, (thus the Erskine), a builder, developed much of the land between Browns Bay and Forrest Hill on Auckland’s North Shore. From the humble beginnings of living with my grandmother and daughters in a shack in a timber yard, to buying up farmland, and later develop a large mass of what is now Auckland’s urban north shore. I know property is a great generator of wealth long term. It starts with a vision and is made successful with foresight.

I have always had a passion for property, inspired by my uncle Barry Owen McConnel, (thus the Owen). He built a significant property investment portfolio, and watching his journey with property inspired me. He encouraged my parents (both civil servants) to invest, which they did, and are now enjoying the fruits of their long term property investment – travelling the world in their retirement.
