I am very proud to be part of Residential/Lifestyle team working at Barfoot & Thompson, Waiuku. For me, doing good business with good people is what it's all about.

Like many people, I love the unique rural/coastal lifestyle that this part of Franklin offers and I am so pleased to be specialising in an area I've got to know and love. I understand that there's always more to learn about people and places. Whether you are buying or selling, I'll work hard to help you on your journey and get you where you need to be.

My family and I are originally from the South Coast of England and feel very lucky to be now living overlooking the water at Matakawau. My wife Tania, is a specialist children's nurse and works for the New Zealand Plunket Society. We share our home on the Awhitu Peninsula with our rescued cat and we thoroughly appreciate the neighbourly spirit and knock-about humour of this little corner of the country. We have one grown-up son who is pursuing his own career in the NZ Army.

We all enjoy the outdoors especially the water, and love exploring New Zealand either on foot, on our bikes, on road-trips, or by kayak.

I have helped people buy and sell homes in a variety of circumstances, for a variety of reasons and it is always very rewarding when you know that you've found the right people the right home or helped someone onto the next phase of their life's adventure. I am proud of the relationships that I have built and developed with my clients and am often humbled by the generous support I have received in my real estate career.
