"Rachel sold us our recent home that we purchased in Oakura. We found Rachel awesome to deal with as a buyer. She is friendly, professional and very approachable and always kept us fully informed making the process such a smooth and positive experience. She went the extra mile for us on numerous occasions making it so easy for our family - she even organised for us to move some things in a week before settlement to ease the load. I would highly recommend Rachel as an estate agent, she definitely has that X factor and is so lovely to deal with. Thank you so much Rachel for helping us secure our awesome home."

"This is a little testimonial I would like to share with you about this amazing real estate agent we had the pleasure of working with to sell our home. I was on the lookout for an agent who inspired and impressed me to sell my home. We met Rachel at an open home and were impressed straight away. When we decided to sell, I called Rachel and our relationship began. She arrived at our house, with her lovely smile and was so professional. She helped us through the process all the way and nothing was any trouble for her. You can ring her anytime of the day or night and she will always answer or, if she was busy, she will ring you back not long after. Our experience with Rachel was not short of Impressive. She did everything an agent should to do and was professional all the way. We have formed a great relationship not only as my real estate agent but as a friend as well. I would highly recommend Rachel Hooper to anyone who is selling or buying a property she is AMAZING!!"

"We recently sold our house and as a result of the exceptional service and fantastic sale result, we wanted to write a quick thank you. The house we sold was our first home and as you can imagine, the whole process was unfamiliar and a bit daunting. We had met Rachel Hooper on numerous occasions at open homes we visited on weekends and every time we got a positive, warm and welcoming feeling from her. When it came time to sell, she was the first person we thought of and it didn’t take long before we were signed up and it was all happening. We are extremely pleased with everything, and Rachel made the whole process simple, fun and exciting. We would recommend Rachel in a heartbeat and next time we are in a position to sell, Rachel will be the first person we call. A huge thanks to Rachel and the team. We are looking forward to working with you again one day."

Dave and Vicki, New Plymouth 2018

"We recently sold our house through McDonald Real Estate and after interviewing others, chose Rachel as our marketing agent. Even at our initial meeting Rachel made us feel comfortable with the selling process and offered tips and advice to stage our house for maximum impact. Rachel researched the market and was able to offer pricing advice for our area. She handled our marketing strategy to maximise effect and always kept us informed.
We know that the real estate market is time sensitive, so we wanted an agent who would update us quickly on where we stood with our current selling situation so we could react and make decisions timely. Rachel was proactively calling potential buyers, communicating with people visiting our open homes and constantly chasing new leads. Most of all she kept us in the loop the whole time. We really felt like she listened to us and her motivation was not to 'just sell' but to sell for the best price.
Rachel Hooper is a happy blend of professional efficiency and friendly reassurance. Without hesitation I recommend Rachel to all looking to buy or sell a home in Taranaki."

Tania and Logan, New Plymouth 2017

"Rachel's sound advice and support from the beginning of our house sale well exceeded our expectations! She was efficient with her feedback, designed a polished marketing schedule and was always considerate to our family needs. We believe this contributed to a smooth sale process, where our price expectations were met. Rachel displayed the highest level of skill, integrity and professionalism and earned our respect and we would definitely recommend Rachel Hooper to anyone thinking about selling their property who want a refreshing agent experience."

Jen and Ian, Oakura 2017

"We recently listed our home in Oakura with Rachel Hooper from McDonald Real Estate. From our first meeting, Rachel impressed us with her warm personality, her honesty and expertise. As a local, she had excellent knowledge of the market and was well connected with keen buyers. We appreciated her regular and efficient communication and also that she never hurried us along during phone conversations or in meetings. Rachel made us feel that our project was important to her and that she was fully committed to our goal. She has an approachable, down to earth manner and we felt reassured that buyers would also find her easy to work with. Rachel is refreshingly 'human' and unlike a stereotypical real estate agent!
Rachel did an outstanding job selling our home. Her price guidance was accurate and she did in fact have keen buyers waiting in the wings. Rachel sold our home within a week, before the first open home and with multiple offers. We achieved a higher price than we had initially expected and we're delighted that the process caused minimal inconvenience to our busy family. We would highly recommend Rachel Hooper to anyone looking to sell their home."
