Danny Bates

Residential Sales Manager

Taranaki Born and Bred I'm proud to be a Kiwi.

As the Companies Central & South Taranaki Residential Sales Manager I look after three offices and a number of agents and staff. I believe in Real Estate no two days are the same, my team have a great sense of pride in being able to assist people to achieve their goals, our greatest strength is honesty we’d rather lose a deal than do a mis-justice.

Outside my real estate life, I've thrown myself into the community. I am a Justice of the Peace, a Marriage Celebrate, Chairman of the Central Taranaki Safe Trust where I work very closely with the Local Council, Police and various other organisations, I’m a committee member of the St Johns organisation and a member of the Business Association. I enjoy playing golf, fishing and a little bit of socialising.

With the help of my family, the McDonald Real Estate family and the Taranaki community I feel anything is possible. My motto in life and one I promote throughout my team is to “Give back to the community of what you take out” by choosing McDonald Real Estate to help you with your Real Estate needs we are able to continue supporting our community and you have my personal guarantee that we will do our best to achieve YOUR expectations.
