Before entering real estate, Richard had been farming all his life. He has farmed most soil types from clay to peat to pumice and many systems from all grass to intensive zero grazing, completing 16 years' successful 50/50 sharemilking and finishing up with 800 registered pedigree Jersey cows.
As a result, Richard has a good understanding and real passion for the rural sector and the people in it. He uses his knowledge in farming to help accurately market and sell rural properties big and small, from lifestyle and coastal, to sheep and beef to dairy farms. In addition, he wants to help buyers find exactly what they are looking for as easily as possible.
Richard lives on a drystock property near Raglan with his wife, Christine, and three children, Jack, Libby and Ayla-Rose. Interests other than real estate include diving, fishing, surfing, breeding cows, motorbikes, spending time with his family and encouraging them to follow their passions. Be it horse riding, rugby, learning to surf or catching their first fish, he gets a thrill out of being present at those moments.
Richard has a community spirit, a strong work ethic and competitive nature. That, combined with support from the team at PGG Wrightson Real Estate, Richard looks forward to working with you in your real estate needs and exceeding your expectations in a real estate salesperson.
