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.

Testimonials

Doug did an amazing job and it was lovely dealing with him. I would recommend Doug Wakelin of Property Brokers to anyone looking at selling or buying a property, we can't thank him enough! M&M Jenkins of Pukeatua
Rangea Farm Limited
Was a long, drawn out process obtaining the property we wanted at the price we were willing to pay but Doug did an excellent job of keeping us up with where the Vendor was at & ended up discounting his commission to get it over the line !! Can't ask for more than that !!
Ard Choille Farms Ltd
Service was fine and Doug the agent did a great job.
Mr B Rutherford
Doug was great to work with and very patient throughout the process of buying the property. Doug liaised well with us and the vendors for a smoother transition onto the property and services.
Mr C and Mrs M Carl
Absolute great guys. Very experienced, professional and honest in both their appraisal of our property and ongoing sale. There communication was excellent. We knew what was happening at every step of the way. We felt they both went way above and beyond what was expected over, what was a very difficult time due to drought conditions and govt. financial conditions imposed during marketing of the property. They both did their very best to get us the best deal that was available at the time. Would thoroughly recommend to everyone.
Mr I and Mrs R 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.
Steve Borland - Director - Shabor Ltd
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
