Andy has spent the whole of his working life in the rural sector. He is now applying his enthusiasm and energy to expanding the rural division and sales with Harcourts.
Following the completion of an Agricultural Commerce degree at Lincoln University, he attained the status of registered valuer and registered primary industry consultant, and operated for a 15 year period in private valuation and consulting practice, on a very diversified range of land based, rural business activities. This included planning and managing two lifestyle subdivisions.
His “hands on” experience includes management of a sheep and beef farming venture, and the establishment and operation of a deer enterprise. This was followed by the setting up and full time management of two wine brands - from vineyard establishment, to wine production, brand creation, marketing and sales. In New Zealand and overseas. This wine industry knowledge and experience has resulted in a significant involvement in vineyard and winery listings and sales throughout New Zealand.
Wide ranging experience and understanding of the rural scene in general, and range of land use, enables Andy to bring a complete approach to the property field. This is a big plus to those looking to sell or buy property.
Andy’s approachable manner, the thorough, professional and personalised service both he and Harcourts are renowned for, fit well with his determination to work closely with clients to achieve their goals.
