About John Ritchie

With extensive experience within the rural sector… Let me correct that. Having been employed within the rural sector all his working life, whilst also maintaining lifestyle/farm properties, John Ritchie easily transitioned into the real estate side of things, almost by osmosis.

John loves the rural life. He lives it. Breathes it. And now sells it.

With over 20 years’ experience in the dairy industry, followed by nine years of agriculture-related sales throughout the Wairarapa, Tararua, and Hawkes Bay, John has pretty much seen and heard it all. Through tough times and golden, farmers and lifestylers have discussed real issues with John, and his enjoyment has come from assisting these people in finding solutions and progressing their lives. And he’s still doing that.

If you know John then you’d know his sincerity, and his earnest passion to help others.  He is a great listener: taking time to really understand his clients’ needs and wishes, and desiring above all things to make THEIR dreams come true. He is a great doer: ready to pull out all stops to help them fulfill their real estate needs, and working tirelessly, successfully, to this end.

John is a thoroughly nice bloke. Capable. Industrious. Give him a call and you’ll agree.

And if you’re really lucky you may get to see his gorgeous wee miniature donkeys… that’s if he’s not out beating his drum with the Fern & Thistle Pipe Band somewhere…
