Testimonials

  • “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.

  • 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.

  • Our recent experience in purchasing a property we were fortunate to meet Libby on the open home day.
    After deciding to purchase the property we continued to negotiate with Libby.
    If we had any questions or queries Libby was always there ready and willing to help. We honestly couldn't ask for a more helpful, friendly person to deal with. We highly recommend dealing with Libby with any Real Estate business.

  • We met Libby some months ago by visiting open homes and by exclusive property viewing appointments.
    We were immediately struck and impressed by Libbys’ great personality and enthusiasm, and as our contact with her developed found her to be a very conscientious and honest person.
    Libby was eventually involved in the purchase of our new home, and the sale of our existing home. She worked very hard to get us the right buyer at the right sale price for us, which she did.
    We are very happy with the service Libby provided, even when working with some difficult buyers and testing situations.
    We have no hesitation in recommending Libby to any prospective employer or vendor.

  • We engaged Sam Swinburne during the summer of 2015 to sell our house in Stratford. We approached Sam to act for us after he was involved in the sale of a family member’s house a year or so earlier.
    In all of our dealings with him we found Sam to be thoroughly professional, courteous and respectful of our property and our wishes. He was highly motivated, dedicated and committed to helping us achieve a sale.
    We found him to be readily approachable, ready to listen to any concerns and his communication with us always regular, prompt, and timely. He worked hard and diligently for us during each stage of the sales process and went above and beyond what we consider to be a normal level of service.
    Following the sale of our house Sam once again worked tirelessly and diligently to find us a new family home, despite us not really knowing exactly what we were looking for. His patience and forthcoming advise in helping us through this decision making process is to be commended, and very much appreciated.
    Without question, Sam will be our first call when the time comes to buy or sell real estate again and we have no hesitation in recommending Sam to any perspective buyers or sellers.

  • Thomas was very open and approachable on the day I met him at the open home and during the entire process.
    This is my first time buying a property on my own.
    Buying a home can be such a stressful experience, but Thomas made it so much easier by being available to answer my questions anytime.
    Thomas was always professional and knowledgeable during the auction process, making an offer and during the negotiations. This was a very scary process at first but Thomas made sure I had a clear understanding and helped reduce my stress levels.
    I received such great support from Thomas from the start to the end that I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends and family.
    A massive thank you to Thomas for making buying a home such a positive experience.
