Your boutique independent real estate company.

It’s about people, not just property! The most important aspect about real estate, for us, is customer relationships. We cover the greater Southern Waikato Region, from Cambridge to Taupo.

We know the area and we know the market, whether it’s a dairy farm in Putaruru, a lifestyle block in the Waikato or a residential dwelling or property.

You can have trust and confidence in us.

Doing the right thing by our clients is paramount to us.


Whether you are a buyer or a seller, our partnership will ensure the best result for you.
As trusted real estate professionals, we will understand your personal circumstances and advise accordingly with care and compassion.

We tell it how it is, with respect and rapport for you, our client.
Buying or selling property is one of the biggest decisions you will make in your lifetime. There has to be open and honest communication and, most importantly, trust to ultimately achieve the best result.

“Land is like a book, you can read it – every property has a story.”

Quote of the Week

“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”


We do all the spadework, including talking to property experts and councils, to get the maximum value for vendors.

With our strong marketing background, we will ensure your property is exposed to relevant target markets, and thereby achieving maximum exposure for your property.

Countrywide Real Estate provides every client with a holistic service that takes into account all their individual needs.  Among the agency’s unique offerings is the full coordination of renovations, repairs and styling to help vendors and landlords prepare their homes and investments for sale at full market value.


Through open and frank discussion we aim to help you achieve what you want – sometimes what you think you want, maybe isn’t what you need – thus achieving all your dreams and goals.

Professional Experience

The team at Countrywide Real Estate have a wealth of knowledge and experience from sales, marketing, surveying, consultancy and subdivision.
Our commitment is to you the customer, to ensure we do the right thing by you – a wise man once said “if you look after the people, everything else will follow”.

Richard Leach has been our agent on two properties my brothers and I have purchased over the last two years. I believe Richard to be the best and most professional agent available at present and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. If you are thinking of selling or buying a property then you could do no better than to deal with Richard.

Jack Scheres

We highly recommend Richard to anyone looking for the right agent to sell their farm.
Richard is highly motivated and a good communicator.
In a matter of 6 weeks the preparation of Sale Documents, open days and auction produced a very satisfying result.
Thanks Richard.

John and Susan Harper

I highly recommend Richard to anyone looking for the right motivated agent to sell their farm. We sold our dairy farm in December 2015 and Richard made it a less stressful time overall for us. We had weekly updates and progress reports on interested parties looking over our property. Thank you Richard for all the hard work you put into selling our farm, with a great result.

Joseph Campbell said, “a thousand unseen helping hands come to our assistance when we have embarked on a course of action that we have a passion for." And isn't that the truth!

Have you ever noticed that when you put your ideas out there with passion and excitement, somehow opportunities quickly show up in your life? Friends "know a friend" who can help you, or "magically" little gifts present themselves to help you achieve your dream. And isn't this beautiful; knowing that the Universe is listening to your passion; like a coach cheering you on from the sidelines.

So follow your dreams and know that your #1 fan is the Universe itself!
