Personifying the ‘all-round good-guy’ image Kiwi blokes are known for, Stan Sickler is an exciting acquisition for Bayleys Taupo, offering strong ties to the rural community and a motivated, result-driven approach to sales. With 36 years farm experience under his belt previously working in dairy and dry-stock, Stan purchased his first farm at the age of 35 and is well versed in the trials and tribulations his clients face when buying or selling rural property – after all, he’s been there and done that.
Attracted to a career in real estate after a successful stint managing a North Island sales team, Stan is perfectly poised to use his strong negotiation skills, industry knowledge and intellect to achieve goals for his clients. Aligning his own success with that of his customers, Stan is an affable, popular character in the local community and it’s his helpful, ‘can-do’ attitude that has instilled such confidence in his abilities.
For Stan, joining Bayleys has been a natural progression and teaming up with the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand’s (REINZ) ‘small agency of the year’ has enabled him to hit the ground running, quickly utilising his rural networks and capitalising on the excellent reputation of the Bayleys brand throughout the Great Lake district.
"Stan was engaged by us to market and sell one of our dairy farms. We are very pleased with the way he has conducted the whole process from marketing right through to an eventual sale. Stan kept us informed at all times and communicated well with staff on farm. We would definitely recommend Stan to any intending sellers."

"I have had the pleasure lately to inspect a few properties for sale with Stan Sickler from Bayleys Taupo. I have found him to be very professional and organised and has presented the properties well with all the current information on hand. We have recently bought and sold a farm through Stan, we enjoy his casual but very professional attitude and think he should be considered for advertising video of the year with his recent advertising of several Taupo properties. Stan is always contactable and kept all parties well informed during the sales process. He is very easy to converse with and very knowledgeable in his field. In his short time as an agent I think he has got to know the market well and understands his clients. I would certainly recommend if you are considering buying or selling a property within the central plateau you have a chat with Stan with a coffee or a wine and see where it leads."
"A massive thumbs up to you for helping us with our land transactions over the last couple of years. We are thoroughly impressed by your ability to listen to what we wanted. This was no doubt not easy as what we wanted seemed to evolve over time. Your professional, polite manner coupled with that huge smile meant every contact with you was enjoyable. We certainly feel like we have been dealing with a friend. We are thrilled with the 2 property transactions you have completed for us. We thoroughly recommend Stan The Man and the Taupō Bayleys team."
