We’d heard Brett was good - but we didn’t realise quite how good until we listed with him. He always worked well with his team, drumming up interest from existing contacts and finding new purchasers despite the difficult market. His professionalism shone through in things like the way he came back to re-take the photos on a sunny day to really show the property at its best.

We appreciated all the time and effort that went into selling our property in a testing time in the market. Brett kept us informed at all times, provided good advice and we were able to get a result we were happy with during a testing time in the market. Thanks team!

I first met and dealt with Brett and his team in March 2020 when the Native Forest Restoration Trust was purchasing the 80 ha Oreti Totara Dunes block in Otatara. We found Brett to be effective and professional to deal with. Subsequently, we chose Brett to market the 7 residential lots in the small subdivision NFRT has developed along the Oreti Rd frontage. These sales are important to help fund the purchase and restoration of a very important ecological area. He was big on teamwork, local support and wider networking. We are very pleased with the outcome after giving Brett exclusive marketing rights for our subdivision. All seven available lots have been contracted at fair prices before any titles became available - several to local residents and some to buyers from further afield. We would have no hesitation in working with Brett again in the future.

We found Brett Lucas to be honest and trustworthy in our dealings with him. He showed consideration by always making an appointment to see us and gave as much notice as possible when bringing prospective purchasers over the farm. He offered advise but didn’t railroad us. We liked the team approach where all agents knew our property, however Brett as listing agent was the one who kept us updated on any progress.
