A commerce graduate in accounting and finance from Victoria University, Hugh's career was in the financial markets. After retiring to Taupo he completed his REAA papers and commenced working with Harcourts Taupo.
A property owner in Taupo for 20 years, Hugh enjoys all that the Great Lake region has to offer. He has been the volunteer secretary of Coastguard Lake Taupo for the past 4 years and while a handy golfer a few years back, Hugh now struggles to master the finer points of the game…. but is determined to do better!
Hugh chose to work with the Harcourts brand because it is “New Zealand’s Most Trusted” Real Estate Agency. His goal is achieve the best possible results for his vendors by delivering a professional, effective and stress-free real estate experience.
“Hugh was the lead agent in the sale of my property in October 2016.
We received sound advice and Hugh provided regular progress reports. On auction day, over 50 people were present due to the work Hugh put in behind the scenes. We were very satisfied with the outcome. I would thoroughly recommend Hugh to any person selling their home.”
“I asked Hugh to market and sell my property on Acacia Bay Road in December 2016. I had expectations in terms of price and time frame for the sale of the property but Hugh exceeded my expectations on both points. I found Hugh to be professional, personable and would use him again if I ever sell a property in Taupo.” Richard Brough
“Hi Hugh…. a short note to thank you for the wise advice and professional approach you took in the sale of our Taupo holiday home. That a street record price was achieved was hugely because of the comprehensive marketing program you implemented and by the high number of open homes you ran during the campaign. Thank you for your calm guidance and your impressive and enthusiastic marketing campaign, and for keeping us fully informed through the process. Our thanks to the team at Harcourts Taupo for the outstanding auction result. We will be recommending you to anyone thinking of selling their home!” Margaret & Murray Radford
"Hugh sold our apartment 4 /110 Lake Terrace. The whole process was seamless from a well thought out presentation to a successful sale.
We were kept informed at all times as to what was happening and our expectations were always considered. Hugh has fantastic attention to detail, in particular to the "Open Home" process.
In general terms Pam and I are not attracted to real estate agents we have previously dealt with. I can categorically say that Hugh is the exception.
We were most pleased with our contact with Hugh and have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone requiring an honest and competent real-estate agent" David & Pam Sykes
