A lifelong resident of the Rotorua district means Phillip has an in-depth knowledge of the region as well as strong ties with the rural community.
Raised on the family farm at Reporoa, Phillip attended both Reporoa Primary and Secondary Schools.
Phillip began his working life as a farm cadet and progressed right through every stage of the NZ Dairy Industry to eventually own his own 450 cow Dairy Farm.
During this time, he held numerous representative positions within Federated Farmers, New Zealand Dairy Group and Fonterra. He also spent 7 years on the Board of Trustees at Reporoa Primary School. The last 2 years as board chair.
Phillips interest in Real Estate began with being involved in the buying and selling of several commercial properties during the late 1990’s and into the early 2000’s period. It was this experience that gave Phillip a significant insight into the workings of the Real Estate Industry and spurred him to gain his Real Estate Licence in 2005.
Since selling the farm in 2011 Phillip has bought, operated and grown 2 successful businesses. He has recently sold his share in one of these businesses and is now set his sights on the challenge of re-establishing himself as a top performing Rural and Lifestyle Sales Consultant.
