Residential | Central Hamilton
I have been a Real Estate salesperson since approximately February 1986 with just the one company Lugton First National Ltd and as at 1st August 2005 rebranded to be LUGTON’S.
Prior to that after completing 3 years secondary school education at Hamilton Marist I commenced my working career in the grocery trade with Bond & Bond Ltd. (IGA headquarters) as a junior stamp licker and experienced first hand 3 takeovers by large conglomerates (i.e. LD Nathan, Associated Wholesalers Ltd, Rattrays & Sons Ltd, Progressive Enterprises Ltd Etc) which today is very commonplace and not as traumatic. I survived all that to complete 25 years service.
These years gave me experience in Accounting, Company representative selling groceries, Stocktaking management, Business advisory, Business sales, Shop modernizing & stock relaying, Delegate to and served on many grocery committees, plus many other related activities within this trade.
Constant changes within this wholesale trade made me leave and with the backing of my wife we sold our 1st home and purchased one of Hamilton’s leading IGA Superette's on the corner of Te Aroha & Grey Streets Claudelands. This venture was very successful, as we were able to double our commencing turnover in the 7 years we operated despite hard competition from Supermarkets and Service Stations etc.
After selling the Superette and taking a small holiday to readjust my biological clock from working 80 hrs a week average to normal I decided after much searching for a suitable occupation to pursue the Real Estate profession approximately (19+1/2) years ago.
My philosophy in Real Estate is that I am there to stay until I retire and to be always Totally Honest and Sincere and above all to act in a truly Professional manner at all times and I am “Totally Vendor Orientated” - “Service is my Motto”
