Living Loving Lifestyle

Ever wondered why we call it Lifestyle Property?

It’s Freedom - Freedom to make all the noise you want. Freedom to let the kids roam, ride their bikes, dig a hole, and get dirty. Freedom to have a fire outdoors under the stars or during the day without smoking out the neighbours washing.

It’s Opportunity – Opportunity for Dad to have his dream shed and start a 6-month project that takes 10 years because he’s in his happy place. Opportunity for Mum to plant every new rose she comes across and every cutting from her friends and families’ gardens, there’s always room for one more! Opportunity for the kids to grow up away from the distractions of the city, attend that wholesome country school, get stuck in at calf and lamb day and build a special sort of resilience town can’t offer.

It’s Nature – City living takes us away from nature in our day to day lives and we forget we too are a link in that chain. There is nothing like a cold crisp morning, looking out over your own land and the surrounding countryside while you sip a hot cuppa. That contemplation as you sip, knowing your land can provide you fresh fruit and veg year-round, and even supply you the most sought-after free-range meat and eggs people overseas would pay big dollar for never gets old!

While we all have our individual interpretations of what Living Loving Lifestyle means, those are the threads that tie our collective dream together.

I have lived on the outskirts of Tokomaru since 2011 with my wife Rebekah and daughter Ruby. I’m super passionate about the village community, love being a part of the volunteer fire brigade and don’t mind an occasional beverage and game of pool at the local RSA. Coming from a large farming family through the wider Manawatu and Rangitikei, I know the lifestyle and rural world well.
Before Property Brokers I spent 7 years with TracMap, a NZ based Ag Tech company growing the business locally and internationally. It was truly an incredible journey that enabled me to grow professionally and personally. I’m just as comfortable leaning over the bonnet of a Ute talking business as I am in the board room of a billion-dollar vineyard in Washington State. My depth of local agricultural knowledge and networks, extensive experience in business negotiations and a passion for excellent customer service makes me the lifestyle property specialist in the Manawatu.

If you deal with me you will experience my passion and dedication in delivering your real estate goals.
