Brett Christie and Kerrod Veivers are based out of Emerald, TopX Central Qld will offer a fresh way of livestock and property marketing to the Central Highlands and Isaac region.
Mr Christie and his family have been in the Emerald and Blackwater area for over 15 years. Mr Christie has been employed as a cattle production consultant for a number years, dealing with producers of varying scale and targeting a variety of market options for them. With budgets and cash flows at the forefront of mind, he pursues all options to provide his clients with marketing that will have a positive impact on their enterprise. Working closely with producers, Mr Christie places great importance on gaining a firm understanding of what budgeted financial goals they have and how he can assist them to achieve these.
Joining Mr Christie at TopX Central Qld is Kerrod Veivers, bringing to the business 6 years’ experience as a livestock agent marketing cattle through a range of different methods. The knowledge that Mr Veivers has accumulated in his profession will provide a stable platform from which he hopes to offer producers excellent advice and add strength to their business. Mr Veivers shares with TopX a commitment to placing the client first and with this mindset has developed close working relationships with them throughout his career.
TopX Central Qld knows that being a part of the TopX network, with their motto of Old Values, News Ways, is a great fit for their new business. Both partners are keen to investigate new marketing techniques and see a big future for innovative methods while staying true to the traditional values associated with doing business on the land.
“Brett presents himself as efficient, very professional, friendly and always willing to give a hand when a little extra cattle work needs doing. Brett is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of land use and cattle production. I hope to have many more dealings with Brett in the near future.”
– Jarvis Collins, Stud Cattle Breeder – Tungamull Qld
“We have been associated with Kerrod for approximately 5 years in which time he has helped us to buy and sell cattle. Our first dealings with him were when he was working for Elders Moura. During this time we realised his values aligned with ours; the most obvious being his honesty. In addition to this we’ve found him to be hard working, knowledgeable and courteous.
When Kerrod moved to Top X CQ we decided to continue our association with him as we value their approach to selling and marketing cattle. This approach differs from most agents in that they are aiming to help you manage your business not just sell your cattle. As we understand this, they are trying to build long term relationships with their clients by selling the class of cattle that is most beneficial to your business, not necessarily what they can make the most commission out of at the time. We have no hesitation in recommending Kerrod as an agent.”
– Alastair and Melanie Shannon, “Wirra” Banana Qld.
“I have known Brett for many years and in that time he has always displayed first class professionalism, making him an easy choice to sell our property. The sale process was smooth and easy with no complications or hiccups. I think that due to Brett’s extensive knowledge of land and cattle, he was able to offer both parties fair assessments concerning all facets of sale in order to find a fair compromise on value. Communication between both parties via Brett was excellent and never through the process did any ‘surprises’ or ‘unknowns’ arise that could cause conflict. Highly recommend using Brett as an agent and will not think twice about using his services in the future.”
– Steve Drury, Manager – Alexandria Station, The North Australian Pastoral Company
