Rural sales consultant Rural
Ben brings to the Colliers International rural team a wealth of knowledge and life experiences. Building on established business relationships throughout the Otago and Southland area, his knowledge and expertise reach across all facets of Agribusiness, with a particular specialisation in sheep and beef, farming, horticulture and lifestyle properties.
Ben’s career in rural property was a natural move following a life spent working and living in the livestock and farming spheres. Having been a shepherd, trained as a stock and station agent and having spent 14 years in Police service, his knowledge of rural land and rural people mean it’s an easy fit in the rural property sector for him.
A successful career as a commercial helicopter pilot, amassing 5,000 hours of flight time, culminated in him working for the Civil Aviation Authority as a commercial flight operations inspector, a testament to his attention to detail and ability to form bonds with people, both essential components for success in Agribusiness.
Working as part of the rural sales team, led by Ruth Hodges and backed by the powerful Colliers International global brand, Ben is committed to providing a professional and positive approach to rural real estate.
Honest, reliable and hard-working, Ben and partner Julia enjoy the outdoors lifestyle in Queenstown’s lakes and mountains.
