Allan Gifford has been in the industry for some 20
years here in Marlborough covering the district from
Rai Valley to Kaikoura.
Allan was on a farm since he was born in 1951, then
taking over the sheep and cropping property and
farming it west of Renwick in an area that is now all in
In the 1980’s he was a locally elected representative
on the Marlborough District Catchment Board and
Regional Water Board.
The farm was sold and Allan went on to obtain his
Salesperson qualifications starting out with L J
Hooker going on to opening the CRT Real Estate
office in Blenheim in 2001 which has since rebranded
in 2014 as Farmlands Real Estate.
Having been involved in farming, sheep and cropping,
also an Elected Rep on the Marlborough Catchment
Board he finds the background knowledge gained
in most facets of farming vital to provide the service
needed by his dedicated rural clients, especially dairy
farmers, sheep and beef, viticulture and lifestylers.
Without a doubt Allan believes the two most
important attributes required to be a successful agent
is that one must have a sound knowledge of the
processes to follow and honesty and integrity to go
with it. Respect in the community is of paramount
importance and hard earned.
The satisfaction gained is from first class results.
