Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Wellington City
8+ years Waikato based
45+ years in the business
Gary was born and lived his younger years in Karori, Wellington and began his real estate career when he was a keen green 21 year old. His peer’s affectionately referred to him as "boy"! In the late 1970’s he signed 37 unconditional sales in one month, a record which stood for several decades.
Gary’s successful Real Estate career spans over 45 years marketing and negotiating. Committed 24/7 to his real estate business, his chosen career and lifestyle, to fulfil his vendor’s desires and achieve those all important results. During those years he also managed and supervised a residential development business. He has a wide knowledge in both new and established homes and all forms of rural and ‘lifestyle’ real estate.
As a teenager Gary worked on Terawhiti Station, one of New Zealand’s oldest sheep and cattle stations located on the south-east coast of Wellington where he developed his passion for farming, riding, hunting and fishing. During the mid 1970’s to early 1990’s, in conjunction with his real estate business, Gary owned and managed drystock farms in the Wairarapa and Wellington.
In his spare time he enjoys family, rugby, cricket, fishing, music, travelling and generally indulging in the great outdoors experience and that definitely includes meeting and working with you.
Gary is assisted by his wife, Alison, and together they have forged a strong business partnership, and have a reputation for professionalism, top service, integrity and results!

What People Are Saying
When I decided to list my lifestyle property for sale, I engaged the services of Gary Talbot. Gary, who is ably assisted by his wife Alison, has decades of experience in selling real estate and I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone wanting to sell. Gary’s experience and maturity meant he was able to relate to people from all walks of life, he was always professional in his dealings both with me, and also potential purchasers. I always knew that he had my best interests at the forefront of his negotiations and a satisfactory sale was accomplished.

We recently listed and sold our rural lifestyle property through Gary Talbot. We found Gary to act in a thorough, knowledgeable and professional manner when showing prospective buyers over our property, always showing respect and consideration to both parties. We especially appreciated the way he did his groundwork spending time getting to know a prospective buyer and their situation before building up hopes of a possible sale. We were always kept informed of progress made or otherwise. We think that Gary’s honest and personal approach led to the successful sale of our property. We have no hesitation in recommending him to any prospective Vendor or Buyers.

Gary was recommended to me, by a client, for his 39 years experience, his very approachable manner, down to earth attitude, common sense and his honesty, for which I am very grateful. I found Gary and his team very easy to work with. They over extended their time and input, ran a very well structured Impact Tender programme which produced a very successful Tender result – 11 Tenders on the day! I would also highly recommend Gary and his team to any Landowner seriously wanting to sell.”

Market Share didn’t come into the equation when I listed my property with Gary because my experience in having sold property through Gary in the past is my personal proof that his knowledge and total performance is worth far more than being merely a statistic within a large organisation.
Thank you Gary and Alison for all the assistance you gave us during the recent sale of our property. You made a normally stressful time an absolute breeze. We would, without hesitation, recommend you both to anyone looking to buy or sell property.
