60 Bridge Street, Eltham

As part of the growth of McDonald Real Estate Ltd a branch office was opened in Eltham in the early 1980's. While Eltham is a small rural town it offers excellent employment opportunities through several large manufacturers. Eltham is a very proud and extremely loyal town with a strong emphasis on family values. McDonald Real Estates motto "A family firm that's good for life" fits nicely into the Eltham concept and as a result the office is a very busy and very successful operation.

58 Rata Street, Inglewood

The Inglewood branch was established in 1987 and occupies one of Taranaki’s best heritage buildings. The company first established itself in Inglewood as a tenant in the old building but were lucky enough to have the opportunity to purchase the building after it was badly damaged by a fire which fatally destroyed the adjoining building. Our commitment to Inglewood was really put to the test when it came to restoring the old girl but the end result has been not only a source of pride for the company but also a wonderful landmark of which the whole community are proud of.

50 Tasman Street, Opunake

Viv Scott and Tara Gibson have been selling real estate in Opunake for many years and would love to hear from you if you are thinking of making a move.

Opunake is one of New Zealand's best kept secrets and anyone who goes there falls in love with the place. It is very rural in its concept but has one of the best holiday beaches in the north island. The Opunake coast is also well know for its surfing and would definitely be among New Zealands best surfing spots.

288 Broadway   The Stratford office was the first established office of the company when it was established on the same site that it occupies today. Whilst Michael McDonalds records date back to 1912, the earliest photos of the Stratford office are dated 1919 but were a far cry from todays bright new premises.

Much of the business at McDonald Real Estate Ltd is repeat business with some properties having been sold 10 or more times over the generations. It certainly gives huge satisfaction to be able to work with clients whose family have been McDonald Real Estate Ltd clients for several generations. For the company to have survived and prospered in a competitive market such as Real Estate for over a 100 years says something for its integrity and service. At McDonald Real Estate Ltd we are confident when we say “Our Reputation Is Your Guarantee”.

49 McLean Street, Waitara

Established in 2000, this branch has definitely proved it's here to stay. The sales team includes three licensees: Kerrie Montgomerie and Phillip Su in residential sales and Gavin Muir our rural salespersons. They are supported by property manager, Raewyn Breman, who looks after the rental side of things. The family philosophy of McDonald Real Estate Limited is well suited to Waitara as it is a community that looks after its own.


Generally regarded as “Taranaki’s Most Successful Farm Sales Team” the rural side of our business is what we have become known for. Selling farms since 1912 is something none of our competitors can claim but is something we take great pride in. Since Michael McDonald senior recorded the details of farms he had sold in 1912, we have continued to play a huge part in the rural market of Taranaki. Today the company has 8 experienced rural salespeople who consistently account for 65% - 70% of the market. We have developed a reputation for fairness and professionalism and with over 100 years behind us we can certainly claim to have the experience.

Many of our properties are taken to auction where we achieve close to 100% success. By creating the right atmosphere and providing a top auctioneer we are able to deliver results beyond our clients expectations.

McDonald Real Estate Ltd are very proud of the rural team and the results they achieve.
