Meet the Bowe & Lidbury Team

Tony Bowe

DIRECTOR – LICENSEE (MAITLAND) – RURAL PROPERTY SALES

Licensed Real Estate Agent, Stock & Station Agent and Accredited Auctioneer

As a founding partner of the long established Stock & Station agency business, Bowe & Lidbury Pty Ltd, Tony has a lifetime of experience in the rural industry, particularly in the marketing of livestock.

Since the late 1980’s from the old Maitland Saleyards (opposite Maitland Hospital) and Waratah Saleyards (now the site of Warabrook township) Bowe & Lidbury commenced operations from the new Maitland Saleyards, located at Rutherford.

Tony has seen the changes from the old ways of agency practice through to the innovations of the technological age, however the one constant of the auctioneer on the catwalk has to date remained an enduring industry practice. Tony is able to cite a band of loyal clientele who consigned sale stock on our first sale in January 1989 and continue to support us today.
