Registered Valuer | Rural & Agribusiness
Kate is a born and breed Southlander. Growing up on a sheep and beef farm in Central Southland gave her an invaluable appreciation and understanding of the area and primary sector.
Kate graduated from Lincoln University in 2015 with a B. Com. Ag majoring in Agricultural Management and Rural Valuation. In her final year at Lincoln she received the Colliers Rural and Agribusiness Valuation Scholarship and consequently joined the company in 2016.
Kate worked out of the Christchurch office for four years, focusing predominantly on valuing properties in the Southland and Otago regions, gaining experience in dairy, sheep and beef, high country, horticulture and viticulture industries. She was also involved in developing datasets, overview analysis and trend commentaries for the Southland and Otago rural property markets for clients and communication reports.
In May 2019 Kate gained her registration and started building her own portfolio of clients in the Lower South Island.
In January 2020 Kate moved to Southland to open the first Colliers Rural Valuation office in the region.
