Richard Leach

For a personal, professional touch in rural real estate.

It’s all about people, not just property

I know the area and I know the market, whether it’s a dairy farm in Putaruru, a lifestyle block in the Waikato or a kiwifruit orchard in Te Puke.

You can have trust and confidence in me.

Doing the right thing by my clients, is important to me.


Whether you are a buyer or a seller, our partnership will ensure the best result for you.

As a trusted rural advisor, I will understand your personal circumstances and advise accordingly with care and compassion. 


I tell it how it is, with respect and rapport for you, my client.

Buying or selling property is one of the biggest decisions you will make in your lifetime. There has to be open and honest communication and, most importantly, trust to ultimately achieve the best result.

“Land is like a book, you can read it – every property has a story.”


I do all the spadework, including talking to rural experts and councils, to get the maximum value for vendors.

With my strong marketing background, I will ensure your property is exposed to relevant target markets, and thereby achieving maximum exposure for your property.


Through open and frank discussion I aim to help you achieve what you want – sometimes what you think you want, maybe isn’t what you need – thus achieving all your dreams and goals.

We highly recommend Richard to anyone looking for the right agent to sell their farm.
Richard is highly motivated and a good communicator.
In a matter of 6 weeks the preparation of Sale Documents, open days and auction produced a very satisfying result.
Thanks Richard.

John and Susan Harper

I highly recommend Richard to anyone looking for the right motivated agent to sell their farm. We sold our dairy farm in December 2015 and Richard made it a less stressful time overall for us. We had weekly updates and progress reports on interested parties looking over our property. Thank you Richard for all the hard work you put into selling our farm, with a great result.

Thelma and Trevor Hunter

Richard approached us about a significant Waikato farming property which he had instructions to sell by Closed Tender. We found Richard to be very knowledgeable about the property he was promoting as well as being thorough on the sales process and follow up. With his sound industry and market knowledge, he was instrumental in assisting us to make purchasing decisions. Richard is very practical in his approach and assures every detail is being attended to. From a purchasers perspective we found Richard to be honest, professional and highly cooperative at all times.

Richard & Henry Hall

Richard was employed to sell our dairy farm on behalf of the trust. He had a very narrow window of three weeks due to our share milker resigning for personal reasons. The trust took the opportunity to sell before looking to employ a new share milker. Richard was extremely efficient, managing to get all the property details and photos sorted quickly. He brought potential buyers onto the farm, working very hard with good communication at all times.
