Initially a farmer and grazier, Geoff understands both sides of the fence and his expertise in valuing and selling rural properties, is without question.

Clients still ask Geoff to attend stock and stud sales on their behalf and regularly ask for his advice on the purchase of sheep and cattle.

These days, Geoff’s focus is on the marketing and sale of rural properties. He has won numerous awards including Top Rural Sales of the Year and this year took out the prestigious No. 2 Salesperson Award in Australia for Raine & Horne Rural.
