Susie Williams’ real estate career commenced in Waimate in 1992 to coincide with the first wave of dairy conversions in the area.
Following a move to Mid Canterbury, she studied for the Branch Manager and Associate qualifications and, upon purchasing a farm at Fairlie with Paul and their two sons, formed a boutique real estate company in partnership serving the Fairlie, Tekapo and Twizel areas. After selling that shareholding, she was approached by a co-operative to establish a presence in South Canterbury and, subsequently, their first stand-alone office in Tekapo at a time of frenetic development in the town.
The opportunity to fill a new sales manager’s role with PGG Wrightson Real Estate arose in 2007.
“…a move which has been so gratifying, to work for a company with such commercial acuity and reach, all divisions working in tandem and covering every aspect of agriculture to provide the best results for our farming clients. It is a great responsibility to be working for up to fifth generation families, ensuring succession, growth and change of direction and I am privileged to support our team of honest, hard-working and skilled salespeople throughout Mid and South Canterbury in an ever-evolving industry where the requirement for contacts, knowledge and professionalism continues to increase.”
