Doug Wakelin

Branch Manager/Rural & Lifestyle Sales Consultant

About Doug

Doug Wakelin has been involved in the rural sector in some form or another his entire working life since completing his education at Te Awamutu College in the 1980s. After a successful coastal property development, a career in real estate seemed like a natural progression, with Doug taking a rural sales consultant role in 2005. Further studies within the industry have seen him gain his Branch Manager’s and Agent’s licences. While Doug has been the recipient of numerous sales and marketing awards, his focus is not on volume but more on managing his business to allow time to maximise the results for his clients. For this reason, he often works in with other experienced realtors that he is fortunate to have as colleagues within the Property Brokers Rural Team. Outside of a busy real estate career, Doug’s interests include rugby, hunting, and fishing but spends most of his downtime on family duties with his wife, Viv, and their three children and five grandchildren.

Doug was wonderful to deal with, kept us up to date and was super helpful when we were negotiating.
There are no words to express my many thanks to team Doug and Di for the sale of the farm at Te Kuiti. We asked you to bring the farm to the market earlier than expected in wintertime of which you and the wider property brokers team delivered outstanding turnout to farm viewings, all while ensuring health and safety of attendees. We had other agents propose alternative sales methods, however your professionalism of pitch and punctuality of presentation, with enthusiasm to match a desire to generate a fair result. I would have no problem in recommending Doug and Di of Property Brokers Te Kuiti as a realtor team to anyone who is considering selling their property. Thankyou once again. Doug Davidson

We are happy that we chose Doug Wakelin and Di Janett as a team to sell our farm. With the changes in the market shortly after listing they worked hard to get a sale. Di was in constant contact with what was happening and a friendly voice at the end of the phone. Their advice was appreciated and there was no pressure to sell unless we felt comfortable. Thanks, Team, for an amazing effort.

You are an absolute great guy, You are very experienced, professional and honest in both your appraisal of our property and on going sale. Your communication was excellent. We knew what was happening at every step of the way. We felt you went way above and beyond what was expected over, what was, a very difficult time, due to drought conditions, Covid and the absurd govt. financial conditions imposed during the marketing of our property. You did your very best to get us the best deal that was available at the time. Would thoroughly recommend you to everyone. Once again, many, many thanks. Best Regards,
Mark & Ruth Coleman
It is without reserve I am delighted to provide a testimonial for Doug Wakelin. Doug was the salesperson who marketed and sold our 2 company farms. A sheep/beef and deer breeding unit(1000 ha) and the other a deer velveting operation (193 ha). With neither directors communicating effectively, Doug brokered the deals successfully and exceeded all our expectations. I have no hesitation in recommending Doug and would use him again in the future.

It is my pleasure to provide a testimonial for Doug Wakelin. Doug was the salesperson who listed and sold our dairy farm in Te Awamutu in 2013. Our farm sale was not an easy project as it was a family-owned farm tied up with various estate issues. This meant it had the additional complication of dealing with a number of interested parties during the sale of the farm. Doug dealt with these issues and interested parties in a professional and easy manner. This was a tremendous help to me and my husband during this rather difficult situation. Doug had a calm and very positive approach and we always felt he had our best interests in selling our farm. This showed with a good result in selling the farm. Doug is very professional and we would have no hesitation in recommending him.
