A Passion For The Land & Its People

The strong embedded relationship between farmers and their land has been the cornerstone of productive successful rural businesses in Australia for generations. We understand that, as we are fifth generation ourselves.

Rural land ownership in Australian farms has become potentially important places for both community building and environmental sustainability, with at least 90 per cent of Australian farming businesses still being family owned, most of them being intergenerational. Most importantly, farmers’ connection and level of attachment with their land affects their lives and livelihoods as well as the consumers they serve.

This is particularly true for farmers, who live, work, recreate, and socialise on their farm. Land is more than a place to grow crops or raise livestock; farms are locations with family history, symbolic meaning, and repositories of emotion, they become or indeed are a genetic blueprint of their custodians. ‘What is happening on farms that creates in farmers such a deep place attachment to their land?’ The answer is simple, it’s you. Let’s work together to share your journey.

Mathew and Maria Ng

The best Agent in Hunter Region!

We highly recommend David and his team He helped us find the perfect land to build our first home in the beautiful suburb of Aberdeen . Being first home buyers we have many questions and he have promptly answered all of them and he had given us honest advise and guidance throughout the purchase and settlement of our land. We have come one step closer to the Great Australian dream as we became first time land owners. Our children can't wait to meet David again to talk about horses. Also David is always helpful with local knowledge, Thru him we found a home builder we can trust and continued to help and guide us with local services like land maintenance even after the land settlement was completed.

Excellent Service All-Round !

Throughout my adult years, I have had the experience of purchasing a few different properties. I recently found the need and desire to purchase a decent size block of land, I wanted to work with someone that I could trust and I have been fortunate to meet David from David Carter Property & Livestock, It’s like having a friend on the “inside” that is working for you. He really cares about his clients as well as the community and neighbourhood he lives in. David has been there for us at every step of the way, to help me secure the block of land that I wanted. He has always answered every call or email no matter what time of day or night it was. His professionalism, mentorship, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. I never felt that he was just trying to sell me a block of land. I now consider David a friend and would highly recommend him to anyone who is searching for their real estate requirements. If you want an agent who is honest and open without any hidden agendas, then the team at David Carter Property & Livestock, is for you.

David Carter from David Carter Property & Livestock has been exceptionally professional and helpful throughout the entire process of selling our rural property. Our sale was dealt with quickly and efficiently, we were most impressed with the breadth of services and specialist rural knowledge which David brings to the entire sales process. The property had been on the market for sale with another agent for some time without success but within one month of David becoming involved we had a saleable offer which went to completion. We are sure that your unrelenting attention to detail was crucial factor in such a quick and satisfactory outcome. He was extremely patient and knowledgeable, and through his dedicated level of communication, he always made sure that we understood everything about the sales process. We cannot thank David and his firm enough for bringing this sale to a successful conclusion. David’s professionalism, efficiency and cost effectiveness in bringing about this sale is first class. We would not hesitate in recommending David Carter Property & Livestock to all others and we look forward to working with you again in the future. - Yvain & Sue Wilks – 13 December 2018.
