Dave Hutchison B.Com.Ag (VFM), NZIPIM, MPINZ, National Certificate in Real Estate 

Dave’s passion for the farming sector and the local area in particular comes from a home grown link to the land in the region and over 25 years as a Senior Rural Banker and Leader in farming areas throughout New Zealand.

Having been brought up on a local sheep and beef farm and worked on a number of other farms in the area, this local tie to the land and its people has seen him return to the region to add his expertise and enthusiasm to the NZR team.

Developing long lasting and trusted relationships is a real focus and this can only be achieved through treating every property and client with respect, honesty and an absolute desire to achieve the best outcome for each property transaction. Dave believes that professionalism, attention to detail and a proactive approach to communicating with all parties involved is the key to a successful sales process.

Bringing a strong industry knowledge base, well developed negotiating skills and a real understanding of rural marketing strategies means that Dave is well placed to add real value to his clients and their farms.  “Good information along with reliable, professional and unbiased advice means that farmers and farming businesses can make the best decisions about their properties and I am driven to make sure that is what they receive.”

Dave has managed rural clients from the Waikato to Wairarapa (across diverse farming businesses) in previous banking roles as well as Rural Corporate Banking experience here and overseas, and lead the North Island Agribusiness team for a major NZ bank. 

He has a B.Com.(Ag) in Valuation and Farm Management, has judged Nationally in the New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards, is a member of the NZ Institute of Primary Industry Management and holds a National Certificate in Real Estate. 

In the last 18 months Dave, in partnership with Blair Stevens, has sold more than $66 million of rural real estate.

To whom it may concern,

In the Spring 2019 Blair Stevens and Dave Hutchison marketed our Eketahuna farm, “Clyro”. The farm was sold on time and to price expectations, which was an excellent result for all. Blair and Dave were professional at all times and clearly experienced.

Their marketing systems work smoothly exploring all options to bring potential purchasers forward.

I found that they were courteous at all times and showed good communication in keeping us informed throughout the sale process. With their marketing skills and reputation for achieving good sale results. I would recommend Blair and Dave for marketing real estate.


Yours sincerely

Thanks Dave & Blair for your work in securing us our farm.  We have dealt with a large number of real estate agents over the last few years throughout New Zealand in trying to find our piece of paradise and by and large it has been a frustrating journey. 

It has been such a breath of fresh air in dealing with Dave, his communication has been flawless, his knowledge of the property he was selling was the best I have seen and the viewing was a great experience as Dave made it enjoyable even through the Wairarapa weather was throwing everything at us.  I can hand on heart say it is the best real estate experience I have had and that really was the icing on the cake of the purchasing process.  Thanks for making it so fun and easy.

"Te Rau"

Route 52



To whom it may concern 

I chose to use Blair Stevens and Dave Hutchison of NZR Real Estate to conduct the sale of our 775 hectare property Te Rau Station at Pongaroa. This was a decision I didn’t take lightly.

After a busy marketing period we received multiple tenders. This became an intricate sale process that they handled with particular care and detail, leaving no stone unturned. The result was Te Rau was sold three ways to maximise the total sale price.

They were happy to take whatever pathway either of us thought necessary or beneficial.

Every facet of the sale process was conducted at the highest standard making it seamless and faultless going beyond any high expectations I have.

How they have conducted the sale process right through has been outstanding, with the results to match. If I have this decision again it would be easy, “Blair and Dave” - their level of expertise goes above and beyond.

After the lengths they have gone to for us I would be happy to verify and discuss this on the phone if it helps.
