What others say...
“We both found Iain a pleasure to deal with. We were pleasantly surprised at his initial valuation and even more impressed when he achieved it. What more could you ask for?”
Bob Deakin - Motupiko
"Iain impressed me at our first meeting with his professionalism, his sales success history, his obvious knowledge of the market, current statistics and trends and his astute understanding of the all important marketing strategies that would guarantee a sale of my property. Throughout the marketing and sales process, I grew to appreciate his experience and his expertise in all of these areas. In addition, what "sold" me on Iain was his genuine interest in my particular concerns and the personal attention and support he provided as we regularly discussed the marketing feedback and open home responses. I could not be more pleased with the excellent outcome Iain achieved with his negotiating skills"
Judith Saunders - Redwood Valley
“Iain marketed and sold our Ruby Bay property, and he made it easy. His professionalism was there from the start. With his great market knowledge blended with creativity, the marketing was eye-catching and engaging, yet still filled with the details buyers want to know and see. He listened, pulled in all the right people and produced a great result. He set expectations and delivered on them – and the property sold in 10 days. We have no hesitation in recommending Iain to anyone who’s looking for a hardworking and professional agent, who acts and speaks with integrity, and delivers results.”
Philip & Deborah Alderson - Ruby Bay
"We had an excellent experience with Iain! In the past we have sold both privately and with agents with mixed results. In Iain we found an agent who really kept us informed every step of the way, including keeping us posted on how the marketing campaign was progressing. We also got an excellent result - far better than we could have done if we had sold privately - so I would have no hesitation recommending Iain to anyone buying or selling!"

We have sold houses both privately and through agents in the past, in Christchurch, Auckland and Nelson. Our recent experience of selling with you was the first time that we really felt it was a worthwhile, positive experience having an agent. We found you very easy to deal with and always kept us up to date on where everything was at - and got us an exceptional result too that we would not have achieved without you! thanks again
D & L Southward - Golden Bay
Golden Bay is a tough market. The local agent seemed to mean local advertising and I always felt the buyer wasn't going to be a local. Iain's marketing was next level and he found that buyer who paid us more than I had hoped for and more than my Neighbours believed possible. Thank You Iain and team for doing a great job.
D. Jones - Golden Bay
