“When reviewing our existing business or exploring new opportunities we use Steve Goodman for an independent, honest, and focused appraisal. His experience and skill set are not often available to the rural sector.” 

We have been working with Steve Goodman in areas such as farm strategy, farm succession and resource management. More recently he helped in the completion of our farm environment management plan. He is a highly qualified and very experienced farm consultant and adviser that takes a pragmatic approach. We've found him easy to work with and have no hesitation in recommending his services.

I have known and worked with Steve Goodman for the last eight years.  Steve posesses a unique combination of rural and agricultural knowledge, along with a sound background in finance and banking.  Steve is a person of high personal integrity and can be relied upon for sound advice.

Steve advised us to diversify our investment portfolio into rural land on the Heretaunga Plains of Hawkes Bay, and consequently identified property that would be both cash generating and a solid long term investment.  He negotiated the purchases, the subsequent leases, and the ongoing management of our properties.Through GoodmanRural's expertise since acquisition, Steve has added considerable value to the properties. I would thoroughly recommend his services and advice.

Steve Goodman acted for us in the first instance as our resource management consultant, developing a plan and supervising implementation, which he did diligently. His knowledge of farm environmental management is thorough and led to us utilising Goodman Rural’s other services.
When we made the decision to exit farming, Steve took over full control of overseeing the farm and the sales process, as we were absentee owners. His roles included farm supervision and the selection and appointment of a new manager. We were kept regularly informed, and every step was discussed with us, so everyone agreed on the plan.
Steve took a great amount of the hard decisions from us ensuring all work that needed to be done was completed in a timely fashion. In fact, we believe, he gave his all representing our farm and its requirements over the last two years.
We would certainly recommend Steve as a farm consultant. He will give an honest analysis of your situation, develop a plan for the best way forward, advise on what he can do, and he has an ability to pull a wider team of experts around him to assist.
