As we wind up Te Kowhai Trust, we'd like to acknowledge a few key players... and you were most definitely a key player. Thank so much for for the time (years) and effort you put into selling Te Kowhai. Geordie and I found you committed, professional and a total pleasure to work with. On behalf of the Bendall Family

“The Otawhao Trust recently engaged Property Brokers to market a rural sheep and beef property in Tararua. The Team of John (Branch Manager), Phil and Jared at Property Brokers Pahiatua differentiated themselves from the start by producing a Marketing Proposal that answered all of our questions, explained very clearly a marketing timeline and detailed the media coverage that could be expected. During the sale process we were regularly kept up to date with progress reports and always notified of pending visits. Presentation of written material and brochures was superb with very effective use of an UAV for aerial photos. We have no hesitation in recommending Property Brokers to any one considering the sale of rural Real Estate.” - N J Perry (Otawhao Trust)

Agent – Property Brokers Pahiatua. John Arends Our 125Ha seasonal supply dairy farm at Browns Rd, Pahiatua was successfully sold at auction in December 2014. The marketing and sale was conducted by John Arends of Property Brokers Pahiatua. The process began many months prior with a clearly defined marketing strategy being developed for the auction on 11th Dec. The strategy included such elements as a timeline of critical dates, a clearly defined advertising campaign targeting key geographical areas outside the immediate location and details such as the location of the auction and the auctioneer himself. All relevant farm data was collated, including the financial performance over the last five years and presented in hard copy and DVD to prospective purchasers. I was impressed by the level of professionalism and dedication to detail displayed by John throughout the process. The strategy was successfully implemented, all timelines were met and the farm was successfully sold at auction 11th Dec 2014. Testament to a successful marketing strategy was the fact that despite the difficult market conditions - at the outset Fonterra’s milk price was $7 Kg Ms which declined to $4.70 Kg Ms just prior to the auction - the price received per Ha was a record for the area. Well done John. AAA rating.
