  • I would like to thank Thomas for the wonderful job he did helping my mum and I sell her house. I went to New Plymouth from Australia as we wanted to down size mums house not knowing how to sell her home of over 40yrs then we met Thomas he was absolutely wonderful, excellent at his job and very passionate with helping us making sure we understood everything with the understanding of how hard selling was for mum. I would recommend Thomas to sell your property with his whole heart and knowledge and most of all his friendship. When I came home before the sale he still kept me informed of what was going on and I knew I left mum in very good and kind hand.
    All I can say is a very big THANK YOU Thomas.

  • I would like to thank Robyn for her efforts in selling our home.

    The circumstances of our sale were difficult, but throughout the process Robyn was enthusiastic and energetic, honest and professional, respectful and considerate, with a caring and understanding nature.

    Her enthusiasm never faltered, and I have no doubt her personality played a significant part in the sale being confirmed.

    I highly recommend her to any prospective vendor.

  • We were lucky to have found our dream home here in NP. We instantly loved it, and knew if we didn't get this under contract quickly it would soon be some other lucky families home.
    So our dealings began with Robyn, and it was the easiest, stress free, informative service we have had going through the house purchasing process ever!
    From beginning to end of this process we always had excellent communication from Robyn.
    She is a true professional, and will be recommending her to all our friends and families.

  • We feel the need to acknowledge the exceptional work Robyn Burnett did on selling our property.
    Robyn has embraced real estate with a true passion and desire; she worked tirelessly on our property going over and above the ‘normal realty sale” from walking the streets with flyers to vacuuming the floors when we were too busy to attend.
    The service we received was amazing.
    Robyn impressed us with her diligence, she has a natural flair for buying and selling real estate and the initiatives she took to ensure our property was marketed professionally, were very impressive.
    We have bought and sold many properties over the years and Robyn’s proactive positive and sincere honest nature gives you full confidence you have the right person for the job. We have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone looking at property, her impeccable work ethic delivers guaranteed results to her clients- a rare treat these days!

  • We first met Marie at a viewing she was very enthusiastic about helping us, and went through the listing book with us at our first meeting and marked houses she thought we would be interested in. When we found one we liked she made the process of buying a house very easy. As first home buyers she explained everything in terms that we could understand. Marie is very friendly, cheerful and approachable and when we move on we will use her again. Caleb & Shannon

  • From the beginning of our journey in selling our house to seeing the sold sign on the fence Rachel was with us every step of the way. She was always available to answer any questions we had and advise us on all of the processes involved in selling our home.

  • Rachel was positive, outgoing and efficient in all our dealings with her. We were in the unusual situation of trying to purchase a property where there were multiple offers. Rachel explained the procedures fully and thoroughly and she kept us informed at all times. She demonstrated integrity and professionalism and any enquires we made were dealt with immediately.

    On a couple of occasions she pre-empted questions we had and rung us before we needed to contact her. We would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone selling or buying.

  • We could not be happier with the professional way Maree sold our house. From appraisal through to putting the sold sign up. Maree was very dedicated to achieving a great result for us. Her knowledge on the best way to market our property to achieve the best result was excellent.
    If you want a Real Estate Agent who goes the extra mile, we recommend Maree

  • We really liked Maree's professional manner when we brought our house. Nothing was too much trouble. Whenever we needed to ask her questions, either by phone or email she always followed up. Great person to have as your agent. Keith & Mary

  • “We first met Sam at an open home two years before selling our own home. He spent time with us talking about the house and what could be done to it and when we left my partner and I both said to each-other " he should sell our house when we are ready". Not all real estate agents are made equally. Two years later we had finally finished renovating our own home and rung Sam to sell it. Within 10 days we had accepted an offer on our home because of his hard work. He made what can be a very stressful time very easy. Thanks Sam”. Tom and Karma

  • Robyn helped us find a house that suited us, she was really friendly and helpful, but not pushy. It felt like she really cared about what we wanted, and looked out for us, as we were new to home-buying. She gave us tips throughout the process which in the end helped us to secure the home we wanted at a price that was right for us. Jo

  • “We recently used Rachel Hooper from McDonalds Real Estate on a purchase of a property in Oakura. We had a very positive experience, the transaction went through smoothly and we found her to be professional and pleasant to deal with. We would be very happy to use her again either through the selling or buying process. T & P, Oakura. February 2016
  • My husband and I recently sold our Oakura Bach through McDonald Real Estate, our dealings were with Rachel Hooper who was our Real Estate Agent. Rachel was great to sell through, with several Open Homes and Private Viewings, Rachel worked around us (we live a couple of hours from Oakura), to ensure times and viewings suited our situation.

    She is very approachable, excellent at keeping us updated and thorough with the paper work and our requirements as sellers.

    Nothing was ever a problem, she made our experience as first time sellers, very easy especially with her fun and bubbly personality.

  • “Mid November 2015 I listed my property for sale with McDonald Real Estate. I was assigned Sam Swinburne to handle the sale. Prior to my retirement from the workforce, part of my job was to assess staff performances and strengths. Sam would have ticked all the boxes.
    Sam, you have made the sad decision to sell my home a more pleasurable experience.
    Your sincerity, professionalism, and ability to assess the current market could not be better. Importantly, you are prepared to listen to the vendor and discuss all possibilities.
    I consider myself fortunate in having met you and am certain you will progress rapidly in your chosen profession.
    I would recommend anyone preparing to sell their property, to ask for you to take them on board. They will not regret it.

Every question and potential problem was dealt with in a prompt a positive way.

  • We had the pleasure of dealing with Rachel when purchasing our property in Oakura. Rachel's personable rapport was refreshingly upfront and honest. She was respectful in her approach and we never felt under pressure or pushed. Because of this, our whole house purchasing experience was an exciting one - and how it should be!

    Rachel also had a thorough knowledge of the properties we viewed with her, and was extremely efficient in following up any queries we sent her way.

    If we are ever in a position to purchase or sell again, Rachel will certainly be our first point of call - and we will happily recommend her to family and friends.

  • Working with Rachel was a breeze. She was always prompt, friendly and professional. Without her, we wouldn't have got the deal closed in the time it took. Nicola - Oakura, December 2015
