Te Aroha

Michael Swney


Michael Swney has had over 30 years in the agricultural sector, mainly in the dairy sector and has worked his way up from labourer to sharemilker to farm owner and currently owns a dairy farm just outside Te Aroha.


His journey into real estate started over 2 years ago and since starting has amassed close to 50 million dollars in sales, a record he is extremely proud of.


If you, the vendor or purchaser are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic agent with a vast experience in the dairy industry with local knowledge, then Michael can offer these services.


Michael won’t just confine himself to the rural sector but looks to market lifestyle blocks as well. He is fully aware of the re-sponsibility bestowed on him by the vendor and purchaser at this time in their lives when they are experiencing major life changes. He regards it as his job to make it stress free and an enjoyable experience. While at the same time being able to satis-fy both vendors and purchaser’s expectations.


While passionate about the real estate industry, Michael enjoys spending his free time socializing with family and friends or playing sport



I have known Michael Swney for many years in both a personal and professional capacity.In my role as a pro-fessional, Michael has always been a pleasure to deal with. He is a very competent dairy farmer who has moved with the times meeting head on the challenge of increased regulation I this industry. Michael has always been a very good employer and it is the rapport that he has developed with successive employees that has given him the confidence to enter the Real Estate world while still retaining his farming interests


On a personal note, I have always found Michael to be intelligent, hard working and scrupulously honest. He has a personality almost as big as himself and is well known in our district which incorporates the rural area and nearby towns.


Michael is a very caring person who is always on hand to assist friends and family through difficult times. He can always be counted on to lift the spirits of any group with that infectious personality that I noted earlier.


Michael has been very successful in both his personal life and the business of farming. He is now taking a step into a related industry, but one requiring a different skill set. I have no doubt that he has, or will acquire, the skills to make an impact in this new field.

I have known Michael Swney for 40 years, a local farming man who I have played sport with and watched his family grow over the years.


He is honest, organised, efficient, reliable, extremely competent and has a wonderful rapport with people. Michaels knowledge and attention to farming would be a huge asset to any organisation.
