Stuart visited Whakatane in 1972, back in the days when there was just a fish and chip shop open on a Sunday afternoon. He fell in love with the town and promptly returned to Wellington, quit his job and moved up, all within a month! Apart from a short return to Wellington a few years later, the rest is history and he’s still here today!
He completed a motor mechanic apprenticeship but soon realised his love was selling things and he became a Sales Rep in the motor trade until 1992 when he began his real estate career and has never looked back since. After spending 23 years under the umbrella of a major player in the local real estate scene Stuart was thrilled to be offered a position with Professionals Whakatane to kick-start 2018.
Married to Jude, they have four grown up sons, two of whom love living in Whakatane, and four beautiful grandchildren.
Stuart is very passionate about the town and its people. He has just completed ten years as Chairman of the Whakatane Community Patrol where he was instrumental in the setting up of the CCTV cameras which monitor the activities in town, Kope and other hot spots, in total 24 cameras have been installed. His main interest, apart from real estate, is all forms of motor racing.
