Nick Young is a rural sales consultant for Bayleys Canterbury, working closely with vendors and prospective buyers across a full range of farming properties including dairy farms, sheep and beef farms, dry stock and grazing, plus lifestyle properties.
Nick commenced his career in the real estate industry over 21 years ago because he had a strong interest in the business, and he continues to love it to this day.
“Working in the real estate industry provides me with the opportunity to take ownership of my work and to meet a variety of new people from various backgrounds. The ability to communicate and sell is what defines a successful sales agent. From there the opportunities are endless,” Nick says.
Nick chose to work with Bayleys Real Estate because of their comprehensive track record synonymous with quality, plus the cooperative effort of all their agents to maximise the value of their clients’ real estate assets through superior marketing and customer service.
“I believe that positive reinforcement and a good working team are the key factors in any workplace. Additionally, I have a background in farming, which when coupled with my many years of real estate experience ensures a high level of success when handling my clients greatest real estate assets,” Nick says.
Outside of the workplace Nick is very much the family man with two grown sons and Grand children. He enjoys cooking, travel and has a passion for classic motor racing.

Paul graduated from Lincoln College with a Bachelor of Commerce (Agriculture) specialising in valuation and farm management.

During the early 1990s Paul was employed by a leading rural financier providing lending to farmers throughout Otago and South Canterbury.
The combination of the experience Paul gained from valuation and rural lending formed a natural path into the real estate industry in 1999.
Paul and his partner Lynley live on a 320 hectare fattening farm just outside Pleasant Point on which they run sheep, beef and dairy grazing. Outside of real estate they are often seen supporting their kids at cricket, rugby, soccer and horse riding events throughout the district.
