Growing up with a horse-mad family was a challenge for Tracey Currin who found, in her later teens, that she much preferred the challenge of being in goal on the hockey field.
Her natural drive and determination to succeed saw a career that started in 1986 with what was then New Zealand Insurance as telephonist-typist and moving through the ranks to branch manager, with a round trip from Whangarei, Auckland, Dunedin and back to Whangarei. Being born in Te Kopuru has meant Tracey has always called Northland home.
Having a strong financial and human resources background came in handy when she made a career change to dairy farming in 2004, 50/50 sharemilking what grew to a 1,000 cow operation with her husband, Trevor. Having exited the dairy industry to test the waters in beef farming, the call back to dairy was too strong when an opportunity arose to enter into farm ownership through an equity partnership. The years of financial experience, particularly budgets and cash flow, were crucial to support a robust business plan to their bank.
With skills and experience from milking to cash flows, Tracey understands the challenges farm ownership brings and what it takes to make it possible. Understanding the day-to-day pressures of dairy farming and an ability to match vendors and purchasers to create a win/win outcome for all, inspired Tracey to complete her real estate licence and continue in the industry she has come to love. With more time available since selling the farm, Tracey is able to focus on pursuing real estate as her career of choice.
When not working on her own business or assisting others with financial fitness, Tracey enjoys time at the beach, in the garden and spending fun times with family and friends.
Being new to the industry, Tracey looks forward to the opportunity to assist farmers in taking the next step, whether it is a first farm sale or purchase, upsizing, downsizing or anywhere in between.
Don’t let Tracey’s newness to the industry make you think she does not have the experience you need to achieve the best possible sale or purchase results for you. Years of professional business and life experience, and a passion for assisting those in all walks of life to achieve personal, business and financial goals, makes Tracey the ideal salesperson for your needs.
