John Donderwinkel

With a professional attitude to his work and his relaxed manner, John wants to help expand Property Brokers into the Western Waikato area.  Having been a successful dairy farmer, farm business operator and employee of an agri business, John is looking to apply his years of knowledge and experience in the farming and business world in a new phase of his career.  John grew up in Matamata, in the heart of some very good farming land. He was in the process of buying the family farm when a car accident almost took his life. This incident forced him to stop farming and take a new direction, buying into a new farming-based franchise, Ultra-Scan.  His strong work ethic and high personal standards made John a successful franchisee with Ultra-Scan, earning him a strong and loyal client base in the Hamilton West region.

While working with the franchise, John did Artificial Insemination with LIC, where he was frequently in the top 5 or 10% of technicians in the country for the majority of his 16 years. John’s business ethos includes reliability, confidentiality, and a constant commitment to his clients and to their success. With John’s extensive rural knowledge, anyone could be assured that their property, or prospective property is being dealt with in a manner by which every rural property should be: with honesty and integrity.


John’s social life involves tiki-touring around New Zealand in his campervan with his wife Vicki, and children, Emily and Matthew. He enjoys fishing and diving, coaching his son’s soccer team, and is an avid Chiefs supporter. John hopes to channel his years of experience and knowledge gained, coupled with his love of the land to contribute to another successful business, creating and re-establishing connections with clients so that he can do the best job possible by them.
