Born and bred in Inglewood Taranaki, after school I completed my carpentry and joinery apprenticeship, and then I traveled overseas for two years to the UK and Europe on an extensive working holiday.

On my return I purchased a small Drystock farm at Midhurst and started my building business in Stratford building new houses for the next ten years. I needed a new challenge in life, something where I could use my existing experience in building.

Real estate gave me the opportunity to further my experience, and I took up a position with Taranaki Farmers Stratford in 1989 selling residential and rural properties within central Taranaki. Three years later I completed my Branch Manager’s qualifications in real estate and moved from Stratford to manage the Hawera Real Estate office for Taranaki Farmers selling rural real estate.

Spending a number of years with my family in the Waikato dairy farming and working in real estate I moved back to Taranaki in 2007 to continue farming and real estate.

Four years ago, I completed the National Diploma in Real Estate which entitled me to open my first office in Merrilands New Plymouth in 2014. We moved to a second branch in Welbourn in 2015, and now we solely operate from 203A Coronation Ave, Welbourn, New Plymouth.

I’m Sally a farmer from Inglewood, “well” working on a dairy farm is hard work, but has its reward. You are working with your family every day and you enjoy the farming lifestyle.

I came to New Zealand over 23 years ago from the Philippines, and started a new life here in New Zealand.

I heard that New Zealand was a friendly country, with clean water and green country side and” it’s true”. There is opportunity here for everyone to achieve their dreams, to buy their dream home or their first farm.

Over my time here in Taranaki I have renovated and redecorated a few of the houses that I have owned, which I have find a challenge. It is with this Passion that I enjoy viewing houses looking at the design, shape and decor of a home.

I love meeting people, and being a licensed salesperson gives me the opportunity to be part of a boutique agency, where I can find a challenge by offering my service to our Clients.

Regards Sally Mantey

Farmers working for farmers and we are home owners too.
