Blair Cottrill has been with Property Brokers since 2013 and in this time has sold in excess of $150 million worth of Rural Real Estate.  Having a wide-ranging background, including 10 years in agribusiness banking predominantly in the Manawatu, he has countless contacts within the rural professional and corporate sectors.

His farming interests started from childhood, being raised on “Cross Hills”, a 10,000 stock unit sheep and beef station near Pongaroa.  He has also owned and managed a 240 cow dairy farm and has subsequently developed a comprehensive understanding of the dairy, sheep and beef sectors.

Blair has an extensive first-hand knowledge of both the practical and financial factors which contribute to success within the rural market.  By understanding the unique elements of the agri-business sector, including an in-depth knowledge of the Horizons OnePlan, his attention to detail regarding these influencing factors and market understanding is a clear point of difference and advantage for his clients.

A father of two young boys and very family orientated, Blair is actively involved in the local community with the Newbury School Board of Trustees, a member of the Manawatu Marine Boating Club Inc and the Manawatu Referee’s Association.  In his limited spare time, you will usually find Blair enjoying the outdoors, hunting or at the beach.
