Carl Payne

Carl is an experienced sales consultant having started in real estate in 1992. Before then, he spent some time as a dairy owner and 18 years in the motor vehicle industry, where he owned two car yards and also spent time as a salesperson in new and used vehicles. After working in real estate in Hervey Bay, Queensland, he returned in 1998 to Todd Real Estate, specialising in Invercargill and the surrounding districts. Carl has a grown up family with sons and daughters scattered around New Zealand and overseas. On a personal level, he’s still interested in motor vehicles and has a caravan at Manapouri, where he spends as many weekends as he can chasing those elusive trout on lakes Manapouri and Te Anau.


This is an unsolicited testimonial. We want to express our grateful appreciation of the speedy great work Carl Payne did in clearing our Nightcaps home, all in less than a month. We applaud his professionalism. As a result of this excellent work my (unwell) husband and I were able to resettle speedily in town at Clare House Village, and very nice too. Carl is a good man, meeting all our requests and requirements with understanding, courtesy and speed. We valued all of that.
