It is my absolute pleasure to be part of the Rural and Lifestyle team at Ray White Te Awamutu. Having lived in the Waipa District since the late 1970's, I'm proud to say that I am a local. Our local community is important to me.. the countryside, the location and most importantly, the people. I have great pride in saying that Te Awamutu is my home town. My wife Bev and I were both schooled locally and now have three wonderful adult daughters who all live in and around Te Awamutu. We have our fourteen year old foster boy living at home who is a source of pride to us and helps keep me looking so young. We have lived on our farm in Te Pahu for twenty years now and have no plans to move - farming is in the blood.
I enjoy the rewards and challenges that dairy farming brings along with the doors it opens and connections it has helped generate. Currently a Director of Vetora, our local vet club. I am also the Chairman of the Roger's Charitable Trust Dairy Farm and Chairman of The Smaller Herds association, a group of farmers that run events and discussion groups "for farmers, by farmers". Previously I have been involved with school boards. My leisure time is spent at The Woolshed Theatre, either serving on the committee or taking part on stage in some of the many musicals we put on.
I recently worked for Pioneer Brand products for over six years, helping dairy farmeres and maize growers achieve their on-farm goals with the use of maize silage. The skills I learnt and friends and acquaintances I have made during this time have been a huge incentive and encouragement for me as I launch into my new career in Rural Real Estate.
I love farming, I love our community and I look forward to being able to servce propsopective clients in the rural property market.
