Born and raised on the family dairy farm north of Hamilton and being an old boy of Hamilton Boys’ High School, Trent is proud to call the Waikato home.

In 2003 after a decade in the consumer electronics industry working for the likes of Philips and Sony; Trent returned from living overseas, made a career change and specialised in residential sales with a Hamilton real estate company.

After a successful start to his selling career he quickly moved into branch management as a selling manager in 2004. After six hectic years in the business, in 2009, Trent decided to pause his real estate career and moved into the dairy / agribusiness sector.

This ‘sabbatical’ meant he spent five years in corporate senior leadership roles in the agriculture industry which involved large contract negotiations, technical projects, brand integrations and strategic planning, providing Trent some valuable experiences and a good opportunity to gain some perspective on the real estate business.

In 2014 an opportunity presented itself for Trent to join Harcourts Hamilton to specialise in rural and lifestyle sales and to manage the new Rototuna office which opened later that year.

A few months later in 2015, Trent became a shareholder in the Harcourts Hamilton franchise and now manages the Rototuna branch and rural/lifestyle team full time. An experienced marketer and negotiator he still loves getting out in the field with the team, meeting with clients as well as developing the Harcourts Hamilton business.

Trent is passionate about real estate and is actively involved with his colleagues supporting a number of charities and fund raising projects as well as giving his time to Trustee roles.
