Testimonials

  • 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.

  • 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!! Christine, New Plymouth 2018
  • 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

  • Jason helped us find our dream section.
    We had been looking for a section on our own for a while to no avail but once we enlisted the help of Jason it all came together quickly and painlessly. Jason's overall knowledge of the processes involved in looking for the right section for our needs proved invaluable, his background and experience in various fields meant that he was able to answer the many questions we had. I highly recommend Jason to anyone who is looking to find a section, or looking at selling one.

  • Kylie has sold two houses for us now, and both times provided outstanding service, and great results even within the tight time frames we were working with.
    Kylie brings an energy and enthusiasm to her work that is so encouraging in the midst of change - she just has a great manner with people (and dogs!!) Her professionalism and commitment is evident from beginning to end; she's always willing to go the extra mile to provide us with a fabulous sale. We recommend Kylie as 'one of the best in the business!'.

  • From the moment I met Kylie her enthusiasm and passion for her job was obvious, and I instantly knew that she was the person I wanted to sell my house. It was the best decision I could have made. As a complete novice to selling a house the experience and outcome far exceeded my expectations. Kylie made the process exciting and hassle free. Her positivity and fantastic communication skills are a true asset. I’d enlist Kylie’s expertise’s again in a heartbeat, and without hesitation would recommend her to others. Kate. 2017

  • We were delighted to work with Pete to prepare and market our home which would appeal to first home buyers.  

    Pete was pro active in setting dates, deadlines and appraisals and offered open homes on both Saturdays and Sundays and mid week with professional feedback on a daily basis.  

    Pete's enthusiasm for real estate in both selling and helping people buy houses and thinking outside the square was refreshing and played a huge part in the quick sale of our property.

    Many thanks.

  • I have bought and sold many houses over the years and I can say with hand on heart that Anjie is the best agent I have ever used and she would be my agent of choice for any future sales. Diane

  • Recently we had the pleasure of engaging Robyn Burnett from McDonald Real Estate to sell our house in Blagdon. We found Robyn brilliant to work with. She was very professional and focused on our house and what we had to offer the market place. She advertised the house really well and went the extra mile to ensure our house was presented in the best possible light for viewers, in our absence.She even lit the fire (for an open home) so it was warm and cosy on a nasty, cold day.
    Robyn brought the McDonalds team in behind her and, together, they generated a lot of interest in the property. A great result was achieved for us in under a fortnight!!!
    Thank you, Robyn. We're delighted.

  • Thomas gave us a very good buying experience. He arranged easy access for us to view the property many times so we could get quotes for renovations. Thomas was easy going with great communication. A true millennial that moves quick and nothing's a problem. Craig and Alice, New Plymouth. August 2017

  • I can and I do recommend Pete Baylis to anyone buying or selling their house.
    I used Pete to sell my first house and then my second. I can honestly say he went out of his way to get my properties sold.
    I believe if it had not been for Pete's negotiating skills, the deal on my first house would not have happened. Pete communicated with me every step of the way.

  • Thank you so much Pete Baylis! I cant say I was excited about selling my house but after listing with you I know I won't be stressed about the thought of it next time.
    I really appreciated your paitence and regular communication and updates, especially after open homes, and your honesty when it came to giving people's feedback.
    You've already been highly commended to many.
