Nigel Watts - Principal and Buyer's Agent

  • Qualified Property Investment Advisor (QPIA®)
  • Certificate IV in Property Services (Real Estate)
  • Licensed Real Estate Agent
  • Bachelor of Engineering

In my role as a founder of Niva Property Buyers, I find immense satisfaction in guiding owner occupiers and investors through their property journeys in the beautiful Newcastle and Lake Macquarie regions. Having roots firmly planted in Newcastle for over three decades, I have a deep connection to this community that resonates in every property recommendation I make. Settled comfortably in the blue-chip Merewether area, I’ve diligently built a substantial portfolio spanning multiple states, each property telling its own unique story.

From navigating the emotions of finding people their dream home, the intricacies of finding the perfect investment to match someone’s portfolio and life goals, or revitalizing existing properties through renovation or development, I take pride in the diverse range of projects I undertake.

Beyond my work in property, I’ve spent over 18 years assisting construction companies and governments in implementing technology for asset valuation. It’s a field where precision and foresight are paramount, and I bring that same level of dedication to my everyday work, ensuring that every property assessment is thorough and insightful.

Nigel Watts

With a background in engineering and a passion for renovations and property investment, I bring a unique perspective to the table. Whether it’s advising clients on investment opportunities or overseeing projects to maximize property value, I’m driven by a genuine desire to help others achieve their goals.

As a Qualified Property Investment Advisor, licensed Real Estate Agent, and prior Naval Officer, I approach each interaction with professionalism and integrity. My goal is simple: to provide tailored solutions that meet the needs and exceed the expectations of those I serve. It’s an absolute privilege to be entrusted with such an important aspect of my clients’ lives.

I also have a Masters of Information Technology from the University of Newcastle; I use the skills from this to help navigate and make sense of the minefield of property data and technology in order to help my clients.  Outside of being a buyer’s agent, I enjoy my spare time with my family, keeping fit and love all watersports especially swimming, windsurfing and sailing.

Nigel Watts from Niva Property was truly amazing when I bought my Unit in 2024. As a 1st home buyer, the process was very daunting as you never quite know who to trust. Nigel acted as a trusted property & personal adviser, enabling me to achieve an easy and ultimately successful purchase whilst minimizing any risk involved during the entire process. Highly Recommended.

Nigel from Niva Property was a great help in securing our family a property recently on the Gold Coast. His timely, expert knowledge of the buying process helped us secure the property ahead of our competitors. He also made us aware of all the risks and detailed due diligence, so we could make decisions quickly and easily, making the buying process much less stressful. I’d thoroughly recommend Nigel as a buyer’s agent for your next property purchase.

Nigel from Niva Property was a great help in securing us a property. He is highly professional, maintains clear communication throughout the process and has a thorough knowledge of the housing market. He went above and beyond to help, saved us so much time and helped us to minimise any risks in the purchase.We have now bought our perfect abode in a short duration with the help of Nigel and feel he is, by far, a great agent to work with. Quite simply, it would not have been possible for us to do this without his support. We would highly recommend Nigel and Niva Property to anyone who is looking for an owner occupier property or a high performing investment.We will be sure to engage his services again for our next purchase. Thank you so much Nigel.

Awesome experience. If you have a busy life and don’t have time to attend inspections, talk to agents, research streets and suburbs you need to talk to Nigel. He is a great communicator and super knowledgeable.

Nigel has most recently been assisting in our search for a suitable, affordable property for my son, who is a first home buyer. With each potential property, Nigel provides fast and comprehensive analysis of the market and the area as well as the subject property. This gave us the crucial insights needed to make the right choice at the right price. I have no hesitation in recommending him as an attentive and effective Buyer's Agent.
