We approached Mike Heard to sell our house as we had previously purchased it through his services. Trust is of utmost importance to us and we knew from the outset that we could place our faith in Mike’s integrity. Mike understood our needs and worked closely with us to bring our sale to a successful conclusion-going above and beyond to achieve this result.
Nigel & Bronwyn Homburg
Mike was such a great selling agent, we would definitely use him again. Great communication, fast acting, and a super can do attitude. Thanks Mike!
Caleb and Danielle Heard
The recent sale of our rural property on the outskirts of Hastings would have to have been the easiest property sale process we have undertaken in our nearly 30 years of marriage. Mike displayed the utmost professionalism in his dealings with us – he listened, acted and communicated at all stages of the sale process and at no time did we feel that we were not in control. And it worked – we sold in a timeframe which belied the present state of the market, and we were more than satisfied with the outcome. We certainly will have no hesitation in using Mike again when we sell our next property.
Christopher and Anthea, Paki Paki
We would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Mike to market and sell your home. With Mike’s honest, open nature and reliability, nothing is too much trouble for him. We were fully informed throughout the whole process and felt that he followed up thoroughly with all potential buyers. From our initial enquiry, the listing, marketing and subsequent successful handling of the sale has been done promptly, efficiently and with utmost professionalism, we felt very comfortable trusting him with our home.
Sharon & Ian, Maraekakaho
We recently purchased a hill country property in Hawkes Bay, marketed by Mike Heard. Mike and his enthusiasm for the property encouraged us to visit Hawkes Bay to view the property. The rest is history. Thanks Mike. You continually went out of your way to assist us and your professionalism is second to none.
Sandra, Onga Onga
We chose Mike to sell our lifestyle property as we instantly felt at ease with him. He is honest, approachable, knowledgeable and professional. Prior to listing, all the contractual information and marketing was very clearly explained and presented to us. Viewings and open homes were always on time. Viewers’ feedback was always provided and interested parties were tenaciously followed up. Mike’s hard work, persistence and professional approach resulted in the sale of our lifestyle property for a price that we were pleased with. The whole process was a stress free, positive experience with an end result that all parties were happy with. It was a pleasure to have Mike work for us and we would highly recommend his services to others.
Samantha and Mark, Longlands
Mike was friendly, very approachable and had a genuine interest in supporting us through the sale & purchase process. What could have been a stressful time was quite the opposite for us. Thanks Mike
Luke Osbourne
It was ironic, given that we had chosen Mike for his global reach, that the eventual buyers of the property were from only a few kilometres away. But that merely demonstrated the equal strength of his local network. What impressed us most, however was the sheer professionalism. The advice on the most appropriate sales process was sound.  The fee was competitive. He truly understood our property and prepared high quality, compelling marketing collateral. The regular communication with us was excellent. All of this contributed to a successful outcome:  Mike delivered the sale, and the price, he had said he would
Christopher, Waipawa
Mike, it has been a pleasure having you as an agent selling my farm. Your upbeat attitude, market knowledge and caring professionalism stands out. I’ve enjoyed all our interactions and will contact you when I’m ready to buy again.
