Phillip Berry knows the Bay and its nuances very, very well. As a lifelong resident he enjoys in-depth knowledge of the region and strong ties with the rural community.

Born and raised on a family-owned sheep and beef farm, he started his working life as a farm cadet and progressed through each stage of the NZ Dairy Industry, eventually owning his own 450 cow Dairy Farm. During this time, he held numerous representative positions within Federated Farmers, New Zealand Dairy Group and Fonterra.

He’s renowned for his commitment to providing a no-nonsense, highly professional real estate service. His passion for the community has seen him heavily involved in numerous events, including Hospice fundraising, Riding for the Disabled sponsor, Sponsor of Reporoa Primary School, Rerewhakaaitu School fishing tournament, Galatea Squash Club, Awakeri Primary School and the Central Plateau and Bay of Plenty Dairy Industry Awards.

Why Phillip loves real estate? “The people you meet daily, the variety of work, the outdoor environment plus working with hardworking and honest rural people.”
