About Gary

Having commenced my Real Estate career in the 1980's and working the traditional Real Estate model for over 35 years I was fairly set in my ways....until I researched and learned about the Tall Poppy model. Definitely the way forward for buyers and sellers. So much so in fact, I am delighted to have been offered the franchise for the Waitaki & Mackenzie districts. Fair flat fees are but one thing that sets Tall Poppy apart, they are the fastest growing and award-winning Real Estate company in New Zealand.

Proudly born and bred in Otago with strong connections throughout the Central Otago and Waitaki areas including the Mackenzie Country. My three children have worked overseas and returned to the lower South Island to start and raise their families so I'm fortunate to see my seven grandchildren regularly.

Living in the friendly village of Omarama (arguably the Gliding capital of the world) with my partner Alison, we love that we are close to rivers and lakes, cycle trails and all that goes with this area.

Having had reasonable success in various forms of motor sports over the years, I now enjoy more sedate pastimes such as restoring old vehicles when time permits.

If you are thinking of selling or buying property within the Mackenzie and Waitaki regions, let’s talk!
