We are very happy with Les Kennedy as our agent to find a new tenant for our commercial property. He constantly updated us on progress, provided solid advice on redecorating and prospective tenants, was genuinely working for us. He was there during our progress through the whole process from when our former tenant abandoned the property to new tenant hand-over. Exceptional service and a real pleasure to deal with.

Les Kennedy was a pleasure to work with. At a time when a lot of businesses were downsizing or exiting the market, he used his personal networks to link me with someone wanting to expand their business. He was easy to deal with, completely professional, and did everything he said he would. He will be my first stop next time I need letting services again.

Mr R Pratt
It is with pleasure to provide a testimonial for Les, whom I have engaged with on multiple occasions both successfully purchasing and selling commercial property in Hawke's Bay between 2015 – to the present. I have found Les to possess a great competitive advantage when engaging in property business with him, particularly around his ability to draw upon his established and extensive network across Hawke's Bay in addition to his talent at brokering / negotiating deals while always demonstrating loyalty and integrity. Additionally, key competencies I have found Les to hold is his first rate relationship building capability, his diplomacy and negotiation skills, equipping Les to easily build rapport and respect, and quickly establish trust, all vital elements when purchasing and selling property.
Michael Welsby
As newcomers to Napier, looking for commercial property, Les provided us with a local perspective, and a good history of business uses in the city. On first moving to Napier we were frustrated in our attempts to find suitable commercial property solutions for our business – that was until we met Les. Les understood our requirements and through his wealth of experience and knowledge in relation to local properties, their Owners, permitted uses, available properties and those that may be becoming available he has been able to “look after us “on an on-going basis. For these reasons we use Les exclusively for our Commercial Property requirements.
Steve & Sally Holyer
We found Les to be very trustworthy, honest and helpful in his assistance with the transaction. We would highly recommend him to anyone we come across that is looking either to buy or sell.

Some years ago I had need for a real estate agent. Having used a particular agent in Napier for a number of years, I contacted him, however as the matter was of a commercial nature he informed me that he could not look after my affairs on this occasion. I asked him if he could recommend someone who could help me and without hesitation he arranged for my meeting with Mr Les Kennedy, but not before having appraised him to me with the highest regard. And so started a business and friendship relationship that continues to this day. This relationship is now some 5 years old. Les was introduced to me as a person of integrity with no ifs or buts. That is hard to find these days, but truly this is the calibre of the man. His opinions and counsel in regard to the industry I have found faultless, and as a friend his judgement and comments are similar. It is clear to me that I am not the only one to have experienced these values of Mr Kennedy’s. Walk round Napier in his presence, which I have done many times, and it seems every other person knows him. A friendly comment, a wave or a stop for a chat is the norm. His manner around people is warm, assuring and cordial, and accordingly I have not hesitated to introduce Les to business colleagues of mine. I sincerely wish Les all the best in business, health and life in the future, and should the writer need to be contacted re the above, please do not hesitate.
