Short Biography

Paul has resided in Aongatete for the last seven years and is passionate about the Western Bay of Plenty and its fantastic climate.

Whilst enjoying family life on his avocado orchard Paul has had a building background originally, but also has had a big equine background dedicated to show jumping and the thoroughbred racing industry for many years where he lived and trained as a public licensed trainer in Cambridge & Te Awamutu. 

When not attending to his Avocado Orchard Paul can be found in his shed tinkering as he has a passion for Classic American cars and Hot Rods, but also never likes to refuse a fishing trip, a day Sailing, or a casual game of golf.

Paul has recently transferred to our Omokoroa office and will continue to cater for the Katikati community along with specialised lifestyle and rural properties further afield. With his qualification in real estate coupled with a friendly approach Paul is able to deliver results surrounded by a strong professional sales team and management support.

Paul has an exciting outlook on the industry. He’s focused on relationships, not transactions and works diligently to make the sale and purchase process a positive and stress-free experience for you.

Please feel free to contact Paul anytime to discuss the market and how he can help you in the future with your real estate needs.

Paul himself was very easy to communicate with, he was honest and upfront and went out of his way to help us. He has a very friendly manner and at no time did we feel as though we were being pushed into a deal we weren’t completely happy with. He explained things fully and went the extra mile to clarify points we weren’t sure of. In all he was most professional, always punctual, and a pleasure to work with. We would recommend him to anyone buying or selling Real Estate, and indeed the whole firm of Claridges.

First and foremost Paul was absolutely brilliant to work with when purchasing our orchard… He was totally upfront about the work required to bring the orchard back to health and he gave us great advice for first time orchardists… We felt he made everything so easy and stress free.  Paul has gone over and above in all aspects in his dealings with us. We couldn’t be happier we love our home and income… Paul pops in from time to time for a catch up and to check out our now healthy trees… 


From start to finish of the sale of our property, from the timing to put it on the market, his sound advice all the way through the process, right up to end of sale, Paul is the person to deal with.  Our property sold within the first week.  He worked with us all the way, communicating everything as it happened.  He was always available for any questions we had.  He is very personable, professional in all that he does, and we would thoroughly recommend him to everyone.

Paul is the epitome of everything you could want from a real estate agent; he is knowledgeable and professional.  His likeability is what you want in someone representing your home to others.  There is an ease about the way in which he conducts himself even amidst all the stress that comes with negotiating such an important personal transaction.  He comes across as someone that truly loves what he does and I would highly recommend him to anyone, without hesitation.
