Tauranga, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand
Nothing excites me more than discovering what lies at the end of a rural driveway. Meeting new people, understanding their property and discussing their goals is what I love most about real estate. Rural living is in my blood and it’s my absolute pleasure to help other people buy and sell horticultural, lifestyle and rural properties in the Bay of Plenty on behalf of New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty Tauranga. I’ve previously owned a kiwifruit and avocado orchard, been General Manager of grower services for two major kiwifruit post-harvest companies, worked as a rural banker and ran a dairy farm in my younger days. I understand the hard graft and dedication that goes into the land and I’m committed to helping you realise the most value from it. The network relationships that I have forged across the industry with Growers, Industry professionals and professionals that work on the periphery will enhance the exposure of your property to potential buyers within your target market. I have an extensive database of potential buyers and sellers in this space. Whether you are after a small house with two avocados or a large-scale kiwifruit orchard or dairy farm, I will find the right match for you. In addition to my horticulture experience (in the post-harvest sector as well as a grower), I’ve been involved in marketing and sales throughout my career. I’ve previously held Senior Management roles for Coca Cola in Sydney, Bridge It NZ and the ANZ bank – all of which has served as an ideal apprenticeship for my current role with New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty Tauranga. I’ve found clients enjoy my down to earth approach and find my rural expertise works in their favour. I understand the intricacies of how to value crops and assess orchard gate returns, and buyers trust me to find a property that matches their aspirations and capabilities. I believe that the Bay of Plenty offers some of the best lifestyle and rural opportunities in the world. It’s a privilege to bring buyers and sellers together so both parties can embark on a new chapter in their lives.
