I've always found John to be professional, honest and up-front. I've both bought and sold with him and he's prepared to go the extra mile. John explored all avenues to find the right buyers for us in a tough market and turned up out of hours to sort out a contract detail. I'm always interested in what's happening in the market and John's kept us informed and up to date about properties we might be interested in without bothering us with irrelevant ones.

John made moving from the North Island easy. I'd never even visited Southland but he took just a week to find us exactly the right property. And they didn't just negotiate the sale and walk away it was a big move for my family, and John and the team made us feel welcome. Everything from helping us unpack to sharing local knowledge and contacts to make the conversion to dairy go smoothly.
