Mr Searle joins CBRE with an outstanding pedigree, having been named as his previous agency’s top rural agent for 2012 and 2015 (top 3 for 2013 and 2014).

Originally from Gisborne, Mr Searle has also transacted across a wide range of sectors including dairy, viticulture, horticulture and large scale sheep and beef farms.
