“Ben and Amanda, you have been outstanding from start to finish. You guys could not be further from the stereotype of a Real Estate agent and we are so grateful for all of your hard work.

We were immediately impressed with your integrity, knowledge, professionalism and sincere interest in doing the best job for us. You have such different personalities and in your business they work so, so well together. We loved the way you each used your particular strengths to support us and make selling our houses such a pleasure, and a huge success!

You gave us brilliant, considered, insightful advice for both the properties. We really enjoyed your excellent communication at every stage, especially the valuable open home reports. We still cannot believe you called every single person who attended!

We have absolutely loved working with you and it goes without saying that we would never use anyone but you to sell with in the future. You buck the trend because you really care about the people you work for and getting the best possible result for them. We would be delighted to personally recommend you to anyone, anywhere, who is thinking of selling.Thank you so much for everything!”

MELISSA AND BLAIR CURRY, NGAIO
