The decision to take up real estate seemed a natural fit to Derek Enright, who has an affinity with the land, a good business head, and an easy way with people. Born and bred on sheep and dairy farms, Derek took on a farming cadetship after leaving Wesley College. He then diversified into horticulture and worked in the kiwifruit industry. Derek owned his own orchards and worked in related industries including beekeeping, spray contracting and pruning. He also worked in the post harvest sector, managed pack houses while still a kiwifruit grower himself, and was involved in early trials of gold kiwifruit.
Derek purchased a number of residential rentals, which he managed successfully for a few years but eventually sold as the country life was calling. He farmed in Ngakuru Valley where he also invested in half a dozen lifestyle blocks which he renovated and sold. Well known in the area.
Derek has specialised for many years in rural real estate, he has built a solid client base and established his integrity as a sales consultant. He knows what it's like to be on both sides of the fence. Derek chose to affiliate with the Bayleys brand as it's smart, strong, well respected and a household name around the country. His clients benefit greatly from the support that he gets from Bayleys.
Derek is professional and friendly, with good listening skills and a relaxed, engaging manner with people. He's an astute negotiator, who avoids force and coercion. Derek not only brings passion for real estate to the job but a knowledge of farming and business experience, along with sound advice you can trust.
We used Derek when we first brought our house (8 years ago), when we sold the same house and also our latest land purchase recently. In all of those deals we found Derek to be upfront & hard working, telling it how it is but also coming through for us for both buying and selling. Highly recommend.
We have had the pleasure of dealing with Derek Enright of Bayleys Rotorua five times in recent years. Three as purchasers and two as vendors, each sale or purchase was achieved in a quick, stress free, totally professional manner. Derek's knowledge of rural districts, market trends and values are invaluable, but it is his honest personal service that makes the difference.

We enjoyed working with Derek towards the sale of our rural home. From the beginning of discussions, we found Derek very easy to work with. Derek is efficient, a very good communicator and was quick to get information to us if we requested it. The process went very smoothly, and Derek worked hard to follow up attendees of our open homes. Once we started negotiating, we thought Derek did a great job of communicating with both parties. The whole experience was very pleasant, and we would have no hesitation in using Derek for future sales.

It has been my pleasure to deal with Derek Enright and his team at Bayleys rural Rotorua over the last few months. We have dealt with Derek as both a purchaser and a vendor and have found him very professional with both parties involved creating a very successful outcome in a very timely manner. His attention to detail in the first instance made negotiation by both parties clear and transparent so a good outcome was created. The communication from his team is very efficient and fast. Often when a real estate deal is completed, contact with the agent is often minimal if at all, in Derek’s case he has stayed in contact with all parties. He is easily contacted and is happy to liaise between any parties involved to make your transaction an easy and enjoyable one. Derek has a casual manner and is easy to communicate with as he puts no pressure on either the vendor or the purchaser and is very thorough with any business he initiates. I would have no problem recommending Derek for your next real estate transaction.
We found Derek very communicative to deal with making the process as easy as possible. Did not leave a stone unturned. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Derek and his team to other people and have talked to others about the process and the team at Bayleys.
