Returning to the Ashburton District, Chris started a contracting career after purchasing a small block of land. After 12 years of bailing, agricultural spraying and running a pig fattening unit, it was time for a new direction.

Selling his property and contracting business, Chris entered real estate in 1990, commencing work at Property Brokers’ Hasting’s McLeod two years later.

Over this time, Chris has become a dominant force within the lifestyle and rural market, his success showing in the number of repeat customers and numerous accolades, including ‘No.1 Rural Sales Consultant’, 2012-13 Top Rural Salesperson Companywide and rating consistently in the top ten of rural agents South Island wide.

Chris is married to Leonie, a primary school teacher, and has two adult children, Georgina, a physiotherapist, married to Rob (dentist) who have one child named Hudson, and Marcus, a Chartered Accountant who is married to Amy, also a Chartered Accountant, and they have one child, a daughter by the name of Lily.

In his spare time Chris enjoys his grandchildren and is a keen traveller and enjoys hunting and fishing.

With a farming background, thorough knowledge of the district and a proven track record, Chris provides his clients with the best.
