Tom Donoghue - Director
Tom grew up on a mixed rural enterprise in the Gunnedah District, completing agricultural studies at Sydney University (Orange Campus) and property qualifications through the University of South Australia. He has an extensive knowledge of the agricultural sector and post university, owned and operated mixed farming enterprises in the Gunnedah and Mullaley area. During this time, he furthered his professional development through the Principle Focus network completing their Management Program. Drawing on his agricultural background was a key strength as Tom forged out a new career as a property valuer. Over the last twelve years he has built a comprehensive skills base covering commercial, industrial and residential property valuations, along with extensive government work. As Director of Donoghue Property Valuations and Consultancy Tom is committed to providing DPVC clients with a professional and comprehensive approach to property valuations while maintaining a personal and prompt service.
Tom would like to frequent the golf course a little more and no longer plays but now enjoys watching cricket and football and horse racing.

John Ewing - Senior Valuer
John became an Associate of the Australian Property Institute (API) in 1998 and was formerly a Member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (2008-2015). He is a current State Committee Member of the NSW API.
John is Gunnedah born and after graduating from University in 1993 has worked in Sydney, Bowral, Gunnedah and London. His Sydney and Bowral valuation experience predominantly entailed prestige residential and rural residential valuation reports while his Gunnedah experience was primarily rural based. It is his London experience undertaking high value, complex investment valuations for institutional clients that makes John unique when compared to his regional based colleagues.
In his spare time, much to his wife Jules’ annoyance, John likes to get up at 3am and watch the Liverpool Football Club whenever they play.
