Hi, I'm Tony Skilling, your local Stratford real estate consultant.

Originally from Auckland, I moved to Taranaki in 2010 and haven’t looked back since.

After a successful career in marketing, I was naturally drawn to real estate as a way to utilise my existing skills while getting out there and helping people in the local Stratford community.

I found McDonald Real Estate to be the best fit. We are a local Taranaki company which has been around since 1912, with 8 offices around the Mountain. It’s a family business with values that align with my own, operated by a very supportive team.

We have the biggest market share in Stratford, ensuring your property is exposed to more buyers.

My experience and expertise in marketing ensures your property stands out against other properties on the market. My goal is to always go for maximum exposure which creates the most amount of competition possible. With competition comes higher sale prices, meaning better results for my clients.

My wife and I enjoy living in Stratford and getting involved in the community. We have a 3 month old baby called Luca.

My hobbies include photography, hiking and travel. I have a genuine passion for real estate and enjoy keeping up with property market news and trends.
