MyFarm has had the pleasure of knowing Conrad for approximately four years, during which time we have actively participated in the real estate market and evaluated numerous properties together. Throughout our interactions, Conrad has consistently demonstrated a thorough and highly professional approach. In 2022, we entrusted Conrad with the task of selling one of our Syndicates assets.
Conrad's pragmatic and commercially focused methodology, coupled with his excellent communication skills, prompted us to engage his services for the sale of our surplus property in Waiotahe. Despite the presence of potential challenges associated with the property, Conrad's expertise and guidance led to a successful conclusion of the sale. This achievement is particularly noteworthy as both the vendor and purchaser had high expectations for the transaction.
We are extremely pleased with the process of listing our property with Colliers Rural, with Conrad's outstanding marketing efforts contributing significantly to our satisfaction. Given our positive experience, we would gladly collaborate with Conrad again for future endeavors in the real estate realm.

I’m Chris Meban and I have 30 plus years of rural experience..
I am a 5th generation farmer who had run the 2,300 ha family dry stock farm, running 20,000 stock units.
I started my working life shepherding on large East Coast sheep and cattle stations before completing a Diploma of Agriculture at Massey University.
In 2008 I moved to Rotorua due to its centrality & outdoor environment that my family & I are so passionate about.
We live on a 55ha lifestyle farm in Hamurana running sheep and cattle.
I have many interests outside of work – hunting, fishing to name a few.
It is my interest in the farming scene and the rural community has led me to the challenge of rural Real Estate.
To me real estate is about achieving the best possible result for my clients and ensuring that the process is a positive one. Creating a marketing plan that will target the right buyers and gain as much attention along with consistent and timely communication with everyone involved
I know my market, and have great communication skills and I have a solid track record of sales over many suburbs and all price ranges.
I understand the target audience for each property I offer so I can quickly identify the most effective way to reach those intended buyers.
My promise to you:
I will apply the farming ethics of hard work and honesty to your real estate portfolio.

Clint started out in a family business designing and building dairy sheds. He developed this business to have national presence in Australia working with some of the largest dairy farms in excess of 15,000 cows, providing support for farmers to effectively manage the welfare of their cows.
From 2013-2016, Clint was appointed lead Project Manager and Company representative for Hancock Prospecting’s move into agriculture on the Hope Dairies Project. Managing key relationships with company stakeholders and Government representatives, Clint was responsible for leading feasibility studies, negotiating and procuring farms and equipment, and creating/heading up a team to manage and develop farming and processing operations over 5000 Ha and project value of $500million.
On a smaller scale, Clint has also set up and developed his own dairy goat farm in Tasmania, securing contracts with both Coles and Woolworths to sell marinated goat cheese across Australia.
His career expanded internationally with animal welfare companies from Israel and Austria in business development roles in Australia and New Zealand with a main focus here in New Zealand. Clint has achieved great success for Afimilk (Israel), developing a strong dealer network and support team across New Zealand which forged a successful strategic partnership with New Zealand’s industry leader in genetics, LIC.
He was then recruited by Smaxtec (Austria) to help with their introduction to New Zealand with an innovative device that sits inside the cow’s rumen measuring key data points, such as rumination and core body temperature, giving the farmer vital information around the welfare of their cows. Serving as Country Manager, he has built key support relationships and research programs with Fonterra, Dairy NZ and LIC, looking at the future and sustainability of dairy farming in New Zealand. With these roles Clint has travelled to all parts of New Zealand, giving him a great understanding of farming, and creating strong networks within its community.
With years of farm-focused experience behind him, Clint offers a no nonsense, down-to-earth approach that accounts for the realities of agricultural and rural properties. As his work history shows time after time, returning exceptional results is always a firm focus for Clint.
