I commend Phillip Kelly, Senior Executive from Colliers Agribusiness as a truly dedicated professional. Phillips commitment and professional approach along with a very diplomatic and understanding view allows for client and agent workability. We recently sold a very challenging rural property in the worst environmental conditions of 2020. As vendors we were recovering from another agency’s failed attempt at sale, the residual impact of the drought and impact of a global pandemic with forever-changing obstacles. Phillip displayed an ability to adapt and bring forward new and on-the-go strategies and with an unwavering persistence to achieve a successful sale result. Importantly, a never-give-up approach and commitment from start of campaign to finish achieved the full asking price. I sincerely thank Phillip and the team at Colliers and cannot recommend enough.

Trenton has transacted more than $215 million in Agribusiness Real Estate for local, national and international clients in the past 4 years. Some of these sales has been as a buyers agent assisting the purchaser with his expert knowledge and innovative negotiating. In Trenton’s first year as a broker he received the “Rookie of the Year” award.
Trenton graduated from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Rural Technology, majoring in plant protection. His sales and marketing career commenced with sales representative positions in Western Australia and Northern Australia for agricultural chemical companies. He also launched a direct marketing business in New Zealand and Gofarm Agribusiness in Queensland.
Trenton has farming and cattle interests on the Western Darling Downs and South West Queensland. He is fortunate enough to have purchased several properties that now have passive income streams from carbon projects and wind farms, overlying traditional cattle and grain enterprises. Farming as an absentee landlord keeps him calibrated and in tune with landowners all over the region.
Founding a rural merchandise business called Gofarm and operating it for 18 years, has given Trenton numerous skills to successfully navigate agricultural real estate transactions. Managing a small regional based business like Gofarm, Trenton was constantly exposed to the seasonal impacts of drought, floods and low commodity prices which has been an invaluable experience.
He is creative with marketing which is important to make a vendor's property stand out. He uses the latest digital platforms to cover social media channels and is strategic with the more traditional mediums. Trenton's outdoor advertising initiative “three billboards outside Miles, Queensland” demonstrated this unique way of thinking which has landed him listings and a reputation as an enterprising and innovative agent for Agribusiness.
