Believing “knowledge is power”, Rural Consultant Chris Murdoch delivers his clients the best.

Returning to the Ashburton District, Chris started a contracting career after purchasing a small block of land. After 12 years of bailing, agricultural spraying and running a pig fattening unit, it was time for a new direction.

Selling his property and contracting business, Chris entered real estate in 1990, commencing work at Property Brokers’ Hasting’s McLeod two years later.

 

Over this time, Chris has become a dominant force within the lifestyle and rural market, his success showing in the number of repeat customers and numerous accolades, including ‘No.1 Rural Sales Consultant’, 2012-13 Top Rural Salesperson Companywide and rating consistently in the top ten of rural agents South Island wide.

 

Chris became a shareholder in the company in 2007, and more recently a Company Director.

In his spare time Chris is a keen traveller and enjoys hunting and fishing.

 

With a farming background, thorough knowledge of the district and a proven track record, Chris provides his clients with the best.
