Home & Income.

Tapora, Rodney


The current owners cultivate, cut and sell over 30 varieties of flowers and foliage from the Protea family comprising circa 10,000 plants, on a beautifully groomed 7.25 hectare block. Approximately half of their crop is exported to many countries in Asia and North America with the balance going to the local market which is steadily increasing in strength.
Included with the business is a contemporary 3 bedroom house, a self-contained one bed sleep-out a 7 bay implement shed, a disused milking shed, a large packing shed and propagating greenhouse. As this is a going concern all equipment and machinery used in the operation is included. The vendors are happy to transition new owners into the business to ensure a seamless takeover.
Tapora is an ideal location to grow a family, the local primary is an 8 minute walk away, the School bus takes college age kids to the local secondary school, the “world famous in Tapora” golf course is just 6 kilometers away and Kaipara fishing is simply legendary!

John and Miriam Buyer

Dear Mark

You deserve a medal and a BIG thank you for making the sale of our property happen!!

Your quiet confidence and re-assurance allowed us to see our way to the end of the auction…and beyond.

The auction process was a first for us, and to begin with a little daunting.  However, your professional yet matter-of-fact approach to everything from the open homes to the auction procedure itself, helped to keep us grounded throughout.  

 Thanks for everything, Mark. Keep in touch and call in anytime for a cuppa.

All the best

Louisa Aragao (nee Berry) and Ricardo Aragao Buyer

Mark Enticott of Harveys is the Real Estate Agent who sold us a section in Port Albert earlier this year.

Through all our dealings with Mark we have found him to be trustworthy and helpful. We had never bought land before so didn’t really know what we were doing! Mark answered all our questions and made the process of buying the land very easy for us beginners. When we encountered a few issues along the way Mark helped ensure things ran smoothly. 

Mark has always been professional, approachable and genuine, and he goes above and beyond what we expected of a real estate agent. He even introduced us to our new neighbours and to the owner of the general store. Additionally, Mark knows a lot about the Port Albert/Wellsford area. We are very happy with the help we received from Mark. We highly recommend him to anyone who needed a real estate agent.

Arthur & Marlene Vendor

If you need an agent to sell your house you couldn't go far wrong with Mark.

We found him pleasant and trustworthy to deal with plus of course did the important thing and found us a buyer at a price we were happy with.

Give Mark a go, sure you wont be disappointed.
