I was regularly informed of any interest and feedback from potential buyers. Both her knowledge of the real estate industry and her personal presentation was of a very high standard. I would fully recommend Anne to anyone looking to buy or sell a property."

Bill & June Mellon

"It has been an absolute pleasure to deal with Margot Berney and hoamz Balclutha. Margot’s feedback and assistance during the process of purchasing a home in Balclutha has been more than professional and helpful. She made the process, which was very stressful for us because of the downturn in the Auckland market where we currently live, easier. She has great people skills and made sure that we understood the process of purchasing a house well. She was not only transparent in her communication but also assisted us in every way she could. She kept us up to date during the process and was a great go-between for her vendors and us. She really understood our stress and had great empathy for our challenges. We love her bubbly personality and positivity and can recommend her to anyone who is contemplating selling or buying a property. We are very grateful."

"We recently sold our home through Margot. Her bubbly personality, local knowledge and professionalism made the whole operation as stress free as we could ever have hoped. We would certainly contact Margot if we had any further property to deal with."

Andrena & John

“Margot helped me sell my rental property which wasn’t very presentable. I received appraisals from a few agents and her appraisal was noticeably higher than others. When I talked with her, I realised it wasn’t an overestimate. I understood she looked at the market while other agents looked at the condition of the house. Not long after that she found not just the right buyers but happy buyers. The whole process with her was a great experience.” 

Hideo

"I couldn’t be happier with the service and assistance Anne provided me with in relation to my investment property purchase. She was always friendly, professional, willing to help and answered any questions I had promptly which in turn made the whole process run smoothly. I would have no hesitation in recommending Anne to anyone."

Jocelyn

"Marieta helped us to buy a house in early 2019. She was very prompt in opening and closing negotiations, and helpful throughout the inspection process. She combined professional and friendly perfectly. We would certainly go back to her in the future, if she hadn’t already sold us the perfect house! Thanks Marieta."

Daniel

“Anne was very helpful throughout the whole process. People had told us that buying our first home is stressful. With Anne on our side it was totally stress free!”

Nicholas and Josie van Rijn

"We are so pleased. Aleisha was great to work with and kept in touch so well. She gave good advice and we loved her positivity. It has all been much easier than we thought."

Diane and Steve Andrews

“Our 3 month search for a house of our choice and within budget came to an end when Randa Nicol called us one late evening suggesting to come and inspect a house which was available just for a day or two as the owner had moved to another city. We decided soon and to our great surprise the conditional contract was signed the very next day after negotiating on the terms. We found Randa to be a genuine, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, hardworking and professional agent and very effective at coordinating with the seller, the buyer, the valuer, the lawyer and the builder with a view to delivering on all requirements. Our experience with Randa was very comfortable and we would be recommending her to anyone who would be looking for an honest and reliable professional to work on their behalf. Her pleasant nature made the process very smooth and effortless, and everything was handled in a professional manner. We were especially pleased that she was always available making the lines of communication always open.  I, my wife and my son would like to express our sincere thanks to you Randa for your guidance in finalising the house” 

Sanjay

"Please pass on my sincere thanks and appreciation to your team, in particular Dave and Ross. They made one of life’s greatest stressors, stress free from the time of my initial inquiry (the speediest response ever) to the ongoing communication and feedback throughout the time of listing and final sale. Your Invercargill team are professional, considerate, respectful and I felt they were at all times representing our best interests."

“We have recently both purchased and sold property with Anne. We found Anne amazing to deal with. She guided us through the process in both a professional, and friendly way. She showed integrity, honesty, and worked hard (often into the night) to get us the best result possible. She always kept us fully informed and her ability to produce beautiful photographs and advice for presenting the property for sale was much appreciated. We cannot recommend her highly enough and feel like we have made a friend for life. The great outcome, for both buying and selling, has much to do with Anne’s hard work, expertise in her field and her people skills. Needless to say, we are extremely happy with the result and would recommend Anne, and her team, without reservation, to all who are purchasing or selling property.” 

Trevor and Judith Watson

“Anne recently handled the very successful sale of our long-time family home. In dealing with Anne, she proved to be a very professional and trustworthy agent having great attention to detail and a very caring and friendly approach. We would not hesitate to recommend her to others.”

Pauline and Ross

"I wish to thank Carl and the team at hoamz for so professionally selling my property. Although I had to be absent at various times, I had complete confidence in your capability and was kept informed of all proceedings."

Richard Cull

"We chose Anne to sell our house, and she has been the best agent we’ve ever used. From her precise thought into taking pictures and layout for open homes. Anne’s positive approach and knowledgeable industry experience is awesome. When the offers were presented her negotiating skills were fantastic. Throughout the whole process we were at ease knowing everything was in good hands with Anne and her PA Judy who also was awesome with keeping us updated with everything. We highly recommend you choose Anne to sell your house." 

Daniel & Janice

"After making the huge decision to sell our home and move on we were lucky enough to have Anne recommended to us as great to deal with and very methodical in her approach to selling and buying. We were not disappointed! Our home was sold within a few days. Anne gave us insight as to what was happening in the market, took on-board what our expectations were and handled the multiple offers calmly and logically. We were impressed by her attitude to ensure buyers were treated fairly. We highly recommend Anne to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling, she's a very pleasant lady and we enjoyed her input."

Margaret & Barry

"I thoroughly enjoyed dealing with Anne. She helped me purchase my first house and she made the process really easy. Anne was always very accommodating and helpful, I felt like I was being well looked after and I have a huge amount of trust and faith in her. She made sure I understood everything thoroughly. There were no problems and I would happily work with Anne again and highly recommend her."

Simon

"Thank you for your enthusiasm, quality and efficient service which has led me to invest in New Zealand. After my wife and I proposed a home purchase plan, you asked about our needs and recommended a number of listings for us to choose. In the end, with your help, my wife and I have chosen the property of my choice. Since we are foreigners, we don’t know about New Zealand’s laws and we are not proficient in English. After buying a house, we encountered a series of problems such as opening a bank account, opening a tax number, and processing tax refunds. Fortunately, you provided us with excellent service to help us resolve the difficulties in the process of buying a house. So far, our purchase process has been very smooth. Thank you again Marieta!"

Ma Yiping

"I am an international student and I wanted to buy a property and live here. However, I was not familiar with the geographical environment and the purchase process. Fortunately, Marieta is proficient in multiple languages. She not only gave me a lot of information, but also explained the process to me in great detail. Marieta also helped me to organise the necessary information, contact the appropriate people and assisted with all other related matters. Whether it is during working hours or rest days, if there was a suitable listing, she would inform me as soon as possible and give me patient and meticulous explanations so I was able to choose my favourite house in the shortest possible time. Thanks to the hoamz team, there are such excellent employees."

Pengxing Fan

"Many thanks to you and your team. I want to give a big shout out and a personal thanks to Marieta Yong, she was very patient in explaining the sales procedure. The process was quite complicated as I am not in Invercargill, but through Marieta's focus and professionalism the whole process was very smooth, efficient and there were no challenges. Despite the time differences, she was always available, well informed and ready with the right suggestion. She sold my property in remarkable time. Great job Marieta and well done." 

Arty Liu

"Having bought and sold a few houses over the years I can honestly say that you have been the most professional, down to earth property consultant I have ever dealt with. Living in Christchurch it was hard to find a person I could trust that wasn’t out to try and tell me what I wanted to hear, in fact you were the complete opposite. I found your approach and advise outstanding and you understood exactly where the market was and were honest with what you thought I would get for the home (which was above my expectation). . . . Margot, I can’t thank you enough for helping make this a very smooth transition." 

Jake

Lorraine

"Randa is the most warm, kind, trustworthy real estate agent I have dealt with. She delivers on her promises and works so hard to get you what you want. Randa had our home sold within 2 weeks and got us a price we never expected. Would highly recommend buying or selling through Randa!"

Chelsea

"Randa was very helpful and kept us well informed throughout the process of selling our property in Moana Street. She was always available to meet with us when it suited us and the buyers. With such commitment she saw the property sold"

Darren and Sarah

"I recently had the pleasure of working with Anne Thomas to sell my home. When I decided to place my home on the market I wanted the best agent I could find. I had meetings with four agents in total. Anne’s positive attitude, professionalism and vast experience in the industry was a very big draw card and choosing to enlist her to sell my home was an easy decision that most certainly did not disappoint. Anne was on the ball from the get go with the great home presentation tips and awesome photo’s. Once the house was on the market working with both Anne and Judy was such a positive experience with updates and communication on a regular basis. When offers were presented Anne’s negotiating skills were exceptional and I was overwhelmed with the end sale result. I would not hesitate to work with Anne and Judy again in the future. Thanks again ladies for a fantastic result!" 

Debbie

Thanks Margot!"

"Abby and I thoroughly enjoyed dealing with Anne as a Real Estate Agent. Anne made the purchase an easy, and no hassles experience for us, which was excellent as we were first home buyers. Anne followed through with what she said she would do at every point, and was always so considerate of our needs, even after we moved in. It was a pleasure to deal with hoamz and Anne, and would highly recommend"

Aydan & Abigail

I was always kept up to date and informed about where we were in the process, and what the next steps where. I was notified in a timely fashion to any new developments or issues that came up, which I greatly appreciated."

We have no hesitation in recommending Randa to anyone looking for an passionate honest and reliable professional to work on their behalf. Thank you very much for your assistance with the purchase of our property in 4 Ross Street. Your pleasant nature made the process seem effortless, and everything was handled in a professional manner. We were especially pleased that the lines of communication were always open. Thank you Randa For your help.” 

Desiree & Orlando

”Randa made our selling experience easier than expected. From the beginning she was invested in selling our home and helped us navigate the sometimes tricky process. Although Randa is early in her real estate agent career, she is already incredibly knowledgeable about the market and we were confident with her advice. She went above and beyond for us, always kept us in the loop and made us feel like valued customers rather than just another client.”

Sandy & Nathan Smith

“We would like to acknowledge Randa’s achievement in selling our house. Randa’s enthusiasm for us her client was outstanding and professional. Randa’s commitment to go the extra mile for her client is commendable, and her passion striving to do the best for her client is a credit to herself. We would have no hesitation in recommending Randa to anybody else. We would like to personally thank Randa for experienced advice given always with a lovely smile, and committing herself and achieving such great result for us. We wish you well in the future of real estate and know exactly who to call if we need to sell/buy again.” 

Colin & Diane

“Randa has been nothing short of amazing. She is fabulous realtor, smart, passionate and strategic. She has been very helpful and keep providing great professional advise during the whole process of property purchase. We would like to thank Randa for her great friendly and professional service. We would certainly like to deal with her for future real estate investments and will recommend her to others as well. "

Gregory

"Anne was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout my entire home buying process. From day one when I meet Anne at an open home, I felt at ease with her very professional friendly manner. She was extremely responsive and had great suggestions for homes to view based on what I was looking for. All throughout the negotiations and right to the day of moving into my new home, Anne was there quickly handling any issues that arose. I found Anne and her PA Judy both a pleasure to deal with and would absolutely highly recommend them without hesitation to anyone wanting to buy a new home. I also will look to Anne if I have any future real estate needs."

Karen

"Don was absolutely fantastic. As first home buyers it was great to be paired with someone who was respectful to that and provided all the information we needed. Went out of his way to organise viewings and worked to our budget and schedule"

Katherine

"The whole process was professional and very informative. Regular contact was made by Dave Hegarty. Everything was transparent. We felt informed from start to finish" … "We have dealt with a number of Real Estate Agents over time and to date HOAMZ would be the stand out! Go Mr Dave Hegarty. Keep doing what you are doing because you have what it takes"

Helen

"We interviewed other agents. Dave came out on top. He was professional, knowledgeable and diligent"

Rachel

"We already knew Ross as he had helped to try and find us a property before. We found him to be very accommodating and worked hard to get us into our previous property... We would definitely use Ross should we require further assistance in the southland area"

"My name is John, my wife and I had been dealing with a number of agents around Southland in our search for a new property. It wasn't until we came into contact with Anne Thomas of hoamz real estate that we felt the agent was also working for a good outcome for us and the sellers. Anne is a very professional, honest and likable person which made the decision making process very easy. She maintained great communications throughout the whole process. We would highly recommend Anne's services to anybody looking to buy and/or sale a property"

John

“Anne was extremely helpful and professional during the process of selling our property and purchasing our new property.” 

Wendy & Wayne

“I would use and recommend Anne Thomas to anyone, her service is always excellent.” 

Cain

“I believe for Anne and I this was a lucky sale for both of us, I loved the home and I wanted to purchase on first visit so further house hunting was not really on the agenda as my builder and Council Checks were underway the next day and I placed multi-vendor bid in and secured the home. However, despite the speed of sale, Anne was very diligent in informing me of all the things I needed to know and exceptionally responsive anytime I had a question. I would recommend her any day”

Anonymous

"Margot has the unique understanding, that selling your home is an emotional experience. Her serenity, in how she builds the relationship with all parties gathering your needs and wants, is what sets her aside from other Real Estate professionals. The other important trait that Margot has setting her aside from others, is her honesty to work at a pace you feel comfortable with, so you don’t make a decision you feel wasn’t right for you"

Liz & Stewart

"Even before I contacted Anne Thomas on my call re 27 Jackson Street the property that will be my new home – I knew her reputation preceded her. Anne has been gracious, informative, diligent, perceptive, and exceptionally professional and fun – she is quick to respond and has met every request I have made. Just what was required – which was exceptional – but I already knew Anne was exceptional."

Lyn

"Full marks to Anne Thomas and the hoamz team. Excellent results in just 5 days."

Ramsay family

“Jannette, you are as good a realtor if not the best we have worked with. Owning a property to sell from overseas presented a real challenge but you handled the whole transaction confidently. You always kept us abreast as to what is going on and marketed the properly so well that it was literally “grabbed” in a week’s time. It would have been really hard if we did not get hold of you. And the most important thing is you were able to sell the property at a very good price.”

Varsilisa & Mario

"Stephen was exceptional. We are based in the UK and he went above and beyond to ensure the sale of our home. I would not hesitate to recommend him."

Adam

"Emma has been very helpful in my quest to find a house in Queenstown. She was quick to show me what was available in my price range and quick to answer my questions. Thanks Em! You’re a star!"

Emma

"Thank you Emma for reassuring, and guiding our family in the sale of our home. Emma, you were with us every step of the way, from managing the marketing, running the open homes and then securing the sale. Emma I remember telling you how stressed I was about cleaning the house for the open homes…your first response was to ask what time you could come around to help! I don’t believe many agents would actually think of this first - being able to put yourself in your seller’s shoes is a quality that you are able to radiate naturally. Thank you Emma."

Jopson Family

"Emma was just incredible - we are so grateful to her for helping us to sell our old house and buy our new dream home! We got a better result than we could ever have imagined on the sale of our house, enabling us to comfortably move into our new home. Emma is an absolute legend and we recommend anyone thinking of buying or selling to get in touch - you won't regret it!"

Mel

"This was our first house sale and we were very, very happy with the service we received. I was genuinely impressed by how friendly and professional everyone was. Every single person that I had any contact with from hoamz was a pleasure to deal with, from the lady I spoke to in accounts all the way through to the sales team. Richie and Jesse were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Richie kept us focused (and calmed me down) during our somewhat drawn out offer and ensured we made it to the finish line. I would have no hesitation recommending hoamz."

Trudi & Doug

"When Emma took on the sale of our house as her first project she delivered and exceeded everything she promised. Emma and her team gave us the best sale package and looked after us above and beyond! Selling our house with Emma was an amazing journey and set a record price for our district! We could have never imagined the price you got for us! Thanks Emma and your team for all your hard work!"

Sian

"Emma was very helpful during the sale of our house. As we were first time sellers, she supported us every step of the way, from property appraisal to the final sale. We had a deadline for the sale and she delivered the promise by selling the property within a week and with a great price as well. Emma is the nicest person you could ever meet. Thank you for being with us all the way."

Preeya

"Nicole was brilliant, very receptive to our needs. She quickly established what we were looking for, and chose properties for us to view accordingly. Nicole's quick footwork meant we were able to secure our amazing house in Frankton on our second day of looking."

"We recently met Anne when we purchased our new residence and the process was smoothed out all the way so it just followed on to Anne selling our property for us. Anne and Judy both went out of their way to assist us and we would be happy to recommend their services."

Tom & Joan

"Selling mum’s home was a very emotive time for me and one that I had some difficulty with. Anne’s empathy and understanding were a godsend. Anne and Judy went about their work calmly and without fuss, guiding us in a seamless and painless manner. Anne’s commitment to selling mum’s home was humbling. I have and will continue to recommend Anne and her team to anyone buying or selling property and will be forever grateful to Anne – selling mum’s house was never about a real estate transaction and Anne understood that from day one. I absolutely recommend Anne and her team and wouldn’t consider anyone else!"

Kirsty

"Initial contact with Margot was excellent. Can't thank Margot enough for a great fast sale up to unconditional stage. After that we had a few issues with purchasers but Margot worked with me on that to my satisfaction."

Calvin

"We have known Kath D Cruickshank for 10 years as she has very successfully managed rental property for us in Queenstown. The time came to sell our old houses, and naturally we looked to Kath to act as our real estate agent. She has been very patient and understanding throughout our lengthy negotiations which were due to serious health problems of our family. The completion of a successful sale was accomplished this week with both parties happy due to Kath’s very good knowledge of people and their requirements."

Noel & Patricia

"Dave did a wonderful job for us in selling our house - he worked very hard for us and kept us updated as to what was happening every step of the way. We have sold three properties through Dave Hegarty from hoamz in recent years and we have been extremely happy with the process and outcome every time. Dave works very hard and is very good at what he does. Would definitely go through hoamz for our next sale/s."

Dianne & Steve

"Thanks on the sale of our parents' house. The professional approach you and the team brought ensured the result we were looking for in a fast and methodical manner, well done."

Steve, Linda & Jen

"We really enjoyed working with you again, and the professional way you handled the sales process made it easy for us to relax and know that the marketing was in experienced hands. Thanks once again for reaching a quick sale for us, which allows us to move on and concentrate on settling into a new lifestyle. All the best for the future, and we certainly will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone we know who is looking for a conscientious agent to promote a real estate sale for them."

Allan & Flo

"It is with pleasure and gratitude that we share comments on our experience with Nicole Bell. Throughout the selling process Nicole was incredible, she is very professional and friendly.  She was pleasant to be around and always kept a kind but realistic demeanour. Not all situations are alike.  Nicole was patient and she gave wise counsel along the way. The end result superseded our expectations. Thank you Nicole, we are incredibly grateful."

Dunn family

"After 12 years our home became too small, we found a house we loved and Anne was the agent. We made an offer and asked Anne to sell our house. After the first offer fell through Anne was on the case immediately and within 24 hours we had an incredible 5 offers on our house, some over asking price. 3 days later we were sold and got an amazing new house that our growing family can live in. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Anne - after selling a few houses in Invercargill this was by far the easiest."

Nicky & Michael

"Richie provided friendly, personable and professional representation that delivered outstanding results."

Margot

"Emma was efficient and answered our many e-mails and helped obtain the documents and legal requirements for our sale. Emma was always very efficient, professional and answered our e-mails promptly. She was a huge help over this time and a great asset, always making us feel like we were number one and the only client she was dealing with."

Peter & Julia

"We have always found Brendan to be a genuine person who works for us solely and we can rely on him looking after us and our interests. I have bought and sold many properties over the years and met many real estate agents that will under value property just to get a quick sale and commission. This will never happen with hoamz, and I don’t even bother checking out other real estate companies any more.  If I want to buy or sell I just go straight to Brendan as I know I get the best possible service and knowledge I can get, while receiving total honesty and respect. I will tell anyone that will listen, Brendan is the best real estate agent in Queenstown and you can’t do better than buying or selling with him."

Peter & Julia

"A big thanks to Margot. We enjoyed working with her. She was helpful when we were looking at the property, had great communication and gave us space when we needed some time to think/chat/fit in the rest of life!"

Suzanne & Phillip

"I recently purchased a property through Margot at hoamz. Margot's service was very professional, with courtesy and respect. I have no hesitation in recommending Margot as my real estate person of choice."

Trevor

"Dave is a genuine and honest person and someone I will trust again. Thank you both. Would definitely recommend hoamz."

Craig

"Nick Eyre was great, best agent we dealt with in Queenstown by a very long stretch. He represented the vendor, us and your company to the highest level. He was proactive, kept in touch with opportunities to consider over many, many months till the right one for us came along, and continued his “I’m here to help you” approach through the complete buying process … we very much appreciated Nick’s Real Estate style. Having dealt with a few Real Estate companies last year, while we were starting to look, the end result was we ditched the rest and felt for 2017 hoamz was the best and only one for us."

Andrew

"We can’t speak highly enough of the quality of professional service that Maria provided us when selling our Frankton unit recently. Not only was all communication accurate and precise but the quality of advice given throughout the process was first class."

Ian

"Richie and the hoamz team were consummate professionals from day one until auction day. We had briefings almost daily on buyer and open home interest. Integrity and transparency shone through with every communication. We are now Richie’s greatest cheerleaders."

David & Mandy

"I feel Margot was beyond outstanding. Kind, thoughtful, timely, professional. Just perfect. I have bought and sold a lot of houses in my time and she was by far the absolute best."

Alison

"Jannette did a great job. She knew just how to pitch our property which was challenging given it was still under construction. She has great energy and drive and is meticulous in keeping her client informed throughout. We wouldn't hesitate to use her again."

"Dave was very helpful in finding the type of property I was interested in and facilitating viewings. I very much appreciated the advice and time Dave committed in helping me purchase the property and am very happy with it."

Lynda

"Jannette from hoamz has fulfilled all our expectations that we had when we contacted her to sell our home. She advised us on the amount that she thought our house was worth and was very positive on achieving success and at all times kept us up to date on progress. We would not hesitate in recommending Jannette when selling your home."

Wilma & Roger

"Alexandra and I have just bought our first home with the help of Richie Heap who was an absolute pleasure to deal with. If we are ever in a position to buy again and indeed sell, it will be through Richie."

Barry

"We met Maria when we bought our first house in Queenstown and since then she has been our agent through two more house sales and one more house purchase. Throughout all of this Maria has provided us exceptional guidance and professional advice. We have really valued her real estate market knowledge and positive can-do attitude. Maria and her team worked hard and went the extra mile to get us a great price. She even sold our last house while we were away on holiday with our university student son in residence! Maria is so much more than a real estate agent - she is caring and understanding of her client’s needs and her warm personality makes the selling and buying process so much easier."

Anne & Rex

"Thanks very much for making the sale of our Pounawea property nice and simple. Your straight forward, honest and approachable manner was a pleasure to work with. We got what we expected and will definitely recommend you."

Neville & Miriam

"Paddy and I want to thank you for your excellent service whilst selling our home! We very much appreciate the effort you put in with the open homes and keeping us up to date the feedback! We would highly recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sale their home, and very happy to give a personal reference any time! Thanks again for a great result."

Carmen & Paddy

"Right from the initial contact the vendors found Anne to be very attentive and focussed on the process of delivering top service. She was professional throughout and a pleasure to work with, keeping the vendors informed every step of the way and delivering a very satisfactory outcome."

Roger

"My wife and I were very impressed with Jannette Highsted as a Real Estate Agent. She kept us regularly informed about what was happening in the area. Jannette knew we were eventually going to sell due to ill health, but never pressured us to list with her. Once we listed, Jannette really started the ball rolling and within days the house was sold. We would recommend this very efficient lady to buyers and sellers alike."

Wayne & Carolyn

"Many thanks to Nicole and Fred for all the assistance provided in getting our home to market. Their professional guidance, reliability and attention to every detail confirmed our belief that they were the company to sell the property."

Tony

"Nicole has been an absolute treasure and we would have no hesitation in recommending her to sell your house. Ours turned into a bit of a long running affair but we got there in the end, and it was Nicole that was key in getting this across the line, so thanks Miss Nicole for making what became a frustrating process less stressful."

Tracy & Greg

"Rowan was extremely understanding of our situation and listened to our needs and wants. From the moment our property went on the market Rowan kept us informed with all aspects of the sale. I had total confidence in Rowan from beginning to end, he was professional, helpful, informative and nothing was ever a problem. Thanks for a wonderful result."

Julie & Steve

"I was extremely happy with Ged's approach to the no fuss marketing. The photos he selected were excellent and overall the campaign was very well managed. Ged was respectful at all times. He only brought genuine buyers to the house and ensured he fully screened them prior to showing them the home. Ged communicated extremely well even though I was in a different time zone. He was organised and always left the property locked with the alarm on. Overall Ged was efficient and clearly able to sell the benefits of the home. I would and have recommended Ged to many people in Queenstown. I would definitely go through hoamz again. hoamz have a no fuss, and a can do attitude. I had a brilliant experience and was extremely happy with the outcome."

Rachel

"I listed my house last year with Aleisha Gutsell and within 8 days of listing it was signed up. Aleisha was very good at informing me of any progress and very friendly to deal with. I also purchased a property from Aleisha and she was great with relaying information about the property and always got back to me promptly with answers. I would definitely recommend Aleisha as a Real Estate Agent who gets results, listens to her clients and keeps you informed. I thank Aleisha and the hoamz team for a great job done. P.S loving my new home."

Jo

"Choosing a real estate agent that will professionally market your property can be a challenge. However we were impressed with our agents Hugh and Graeme. They provided clear, honest and professional guidance from start to finish. We particularly liked that the whole marketing team came to see the property together ensuring they could provide first-hand information to any prospective buyer. They sent weekly detailed updates providing feedback from viewings and provided ongoing advice and strategy up and until the sale. I have no hesitation in recommending both the agents, their support team and their organisation."

"We would like to acknowledge how much we appreciate working with Christ Peterson and the hoamz team. Your respect for our goals for selling our property was the best part of the service you offered, we consider ourselves lucky having worked with Chris - he was always supportive and attentive to our needs. We were pleased with your thorough and reliable work on our behalf and strongly recommend you to others. Very impressed all round."

K & D Herman

"hoamz has been really professional and honest in the way the process of a property was handled. Since being a first time buyer in the Balclutha district, I never expected such a smooth paperwork process with the real estate agent right from the first phone call. Thanks Aleisha for your dedication and commitment."

Purchaser – Balclutha

"Thank you Aleisha. You knew what I was looking for and you found it for me. Very professional and helpful."

Jenny

"We would like to thank Steve Lindsay from hoamz for doing an outstanding job on the sale of our property in just three days! We remembered him from 2 years prior when we were looking for a house and knew he was the guy to sell our house. Steve is knowledgeable, friendly and professional and easy to deal with. We highly recommend using him and hoamz for the sale of your next property. We will be. Thanks again."

Andy & Amy

"WOW WHAT A RESULT!!! Brendan and Emma totally exceeded our expectations, from providing an honest and professional appraisal of our property through to the fantastic end result. After 3 weeks of exceptional marketing and hard work, Brendan sold our property at Auction. Throughout the whole process, they were professional, fun to deal with and their customer service was second to none. A great team, delivering great results. We would unreservedly recommend  Brendan and Emma to anyone buying or selling their property."

"My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Margot at the open home of our new house. The house had great garaging and an even better location but modest in bedroom size (as you might expect with 1970 designs). Margot was great, allowing us access to enable some clever furniture purchasing to make the best use of the available space. We were most impressed with Margot's ideas and her happy and considerate nature while we worked through the process of buying. It is really nice to find an agent who is neither egotistical nor clinical (as we feel many agents can be) - Margot is a great listener and we would not hesitate to recommend Margot to anyone wanting a great experience, as we had. We love our new home!"

Daniel & Sheila

"We have had the pleasure of dealing with Rowan in the selling of our apartment. Rowan was extremely pro-active from the very start, it was in fact an email from Rowan that actually got us thinking about selling it in the first place. Another highlight of Rowan's professionalism was his level of communication, we were constantly aware of where we were at in the sales process. Thank you Rowan for all the work you did for us, and we would recommend him to any other prospective sellers."

Phil & Jo

"Emma was very patient and close to us, she was always happy to give us advice on the market. She has great relationship skills and comes across as someone you can trust...no hard selling which is very refreshing."

Eva

"What a great result for us, only achieved because our agent Brendan was working for us to get us the best possible result. I was never sure of auctions but Brendan explained the process well and assured us it was the best thing to do for our property and it certainly was. Brendan has looked after us for many years and we wouldn't use anyone else. Simply my question is can you afford not to use Hoamz? The result was amazing and the team all wished me well on auction day. A great team that works together to support each other and achieve the best possible result for their client. Brendan as auctioneer was amazing to watch, a very skilled person. I always recommend Hoamz to anyone who will listen to me."

Julia

"Thank you both for the outstanding result you achieved for the sale of our Cameron Place property. You were both a pleasure to work with.

"Ross Malcolm is the best property consultant I have found, no one can beat him. It's no exaggeration, and I only found him on the internet while searching for property in Invercargill."

Saheer

"Steve was a pleasure to work with and made the sales process as stress-free as possible for me by keeping me informed at all times and checking in. Steve was always friendly and very professional. I'm very pleased with the result of the sale and impressed by his exceptional knowledge of the Queenstown property market. I have no hesitation in recommending Steve. Steve provided excellent service."

Chrissy

“We originally sent a few emails out to agents in Queenstown and went with Nicole Bell as we always prefer quick communication when doing business. Throughout the process Nicole was great with communication and marketed our house professionally both online and hardcopy. We meet several hoamz agents throughout the Open Homes and it was obvious they were working as a team to help get us the best possible price in the market. Right up to Auction Day, Nicole made us feel very calm and positive for Auction Day. We ended up setting a record for Lake Hayes Estate. Richie the hoamz Auctioneer was the finishing touch to a remarkable team that left us with a remarkable result."

Josh & Kate

"In all the years we have bought and sold, this has been the most enjoyable and memorable."

Iona

"New things can be scary but you have made this purchase seem like a relaxing walk in the park. Impressive customer service and exceptionally quick response throughout. All the best Aleisha!!"

Tash

"Richie was fantastic through the whole process, will definitely deal with him for any future endeavours."

Rachel

“On short notice my wife and I decided that we would sell our studio suite in Queenstown. We believe that sales “happen” more readily, with the right agent. We signed with Jannette Highsted at hoamz and within 4 weeks our suite was sold - done and dusted - with a significant return to us. We highly recommend Jannette and hoamz in Queenstown to sell your property.”

The Canivets

“Thanks heaps for your help with all of this... it was important that we could list with someone we could trust. And thanks also for the ultra quick sale.”

Sally & Alex

"Few years ago we got to know Ged Hay through one phone call. I remembered my husband and I calling other agencies, but once we mentioned the price tag we were looking at spending on a home they automatically said that they are busy or on holiday. But out of the hoamz catalogue I decided to pick Ged Hay's name and asked my husband to call him. After my husband Ron spoke to Ged, Ged gave us a day to wait while he put listings together for us the next day. He picked us up and took us around to every home that fitted our price bracket then he finally made my husband fall in love with 3 Anne’s Way. While living at this address my husband noticed the land at 5 Anne’s Way had become available. After purchasing the land he decided to build, again he called Ged for his service to sell 3 Anne’s Way. We asked Ged Hay for his assistance on selling our home but this time without advertising. Ged said yes it can be done as a quiet sale. We found this the best process ever. After we decided on a price to sell our property the door was open for Ged to bring prospective buyers around that had an interest in the property and the cash to buy within our price. We highly recommended this new selling process but what really made the difference was having the right agent like Ged Hay. When the house was sold Ged Hay still stayed involved. I feel Ged does his job with pride because he stayed in contact and tries to keep us updated. We had the best agent and were willing to wait on our choice of price."

Ron & Jael

"I have bought and now sold a house with Jannette. It has been a pleasure, she is clearly passionate about the real estate industry and this shows in the results she achieves. Easy to talk to, honest, prompt in dealing to matters. I am delighted with the results in my recent sale and I would certainly recommend her to others."

Pip

"The only reason I chose hoamz is because of Anne Thomas. Over the years I have sold and bought many houses and Anne is the most professional agent I have dealt with. Anne has excellent communication skills and is also empathetic and demonstrates excellent listening skills. Anne is an outstanding agent and I would definitely recommend her."

Kate

"We went with hoamz because of Anne Thomas. Anne is a trustworthy person. She is interested in helping you sell your house and she is reliable and conscientious. She is a great asset to hoamz and nothing was a problem. I would recommend Anne to any person who is considering selling their house - equally so, I would also go to Anne if I wanted to buy a house. I consider her to be trustworthy and a very likeable lady who has a genuine interest in her clients."

"May I sincerely thank you and The Mega Master Quilly for your excellent proactive professional approach and deliverance to all my selling and now immediate renting needs. It has been a roller coaster ride for me personally but you guys and all your team are tops (everyone happens to be a runway model too! Nice touch) in my book - not only wonderful to deal with on all matters but it was fun making what can be a bit of a nerve racking time easy; all of your brilliant people skills made it all just run so smoothly. Great work guys, it’s no wonder you are at the top of the game.  Emma thanks for being such a wonderful kind ear to me, your calmness and delightful presence together with a natural professional approach and excellent on-time communications made my selling world easy.  Brendan what can I say; I have known you for many years now only on a friend level which is not only fun but down right hilarious of course, but seeing you in action and all your help with the whole process was not only impressively easily managed by you, but the high class professional standing you expel is exceptional. You are a wonderful charismatic energetic man that gets seriously grand results. I have two words for you and Emma - BLINKIN BEAUTIFUL"

We felt we really benefited from the team approach taken by hoamz and that all consultants were part of the sales process. The team were prompt with providing information after inspections so we felt we were really part of the sales process and were fully aware with where the market was at. The marketing campaign was fun and stress-free for us. On auction night we got a fantastic result, well beyond what we ever thought our property would sell for!"

'Peter and Wendy McCallum have worked with and for us over the last 10+ years in assisting us to buy and sell 4 properties. We have found them to be entirely professional in all aspects of their work in presenting homes and following through to ensure the sale or purchase is made for the best possible price in the market each time. They will call and notify clients of properties coming on the market before they put up the signs to ensure they do not miss out on potential opportunities. Their knowledge of the local area greatly assists buyers to make informed decisions. They are honest, punctual, well presented and not easily deterred from their role in ensuring a great result for all parties. We have no hesitation in recommending both Peter and Wendy to anyone who is in the market to sell or buy property.'

'On behalf of the organising committee for the Saving Juliet Auction, thank you for generously supporting this extremely worthwhile cause. We were so grateful to have a professional there on the night in charge of proceedings. I have organised many charity auctions over the years and really mean it when I say that you are by far the best auctioneer I have ever worked with. The narrow line between keeping the tone of the evening light and fun but also squeezing every last penny out of the buyers is a tenuous one but you somehow managed to walk that line with apparent ease! Thank you again for all your assistance and patience, it really has helped to make the world of difference to a very special family.'

This type of service is just excellent! She is the one person that really, well and truly is taking her career seriously. My best wishes for hoamz and her career."

"We set Brendan the goal of selling the house at auction in 3 weeks and he hit the market hard and fast. We had 6 parties through the first open home even before the ‘For Sale’ sign was up on the street and before any print advertising.   Brendan brought us the first offer 6 days into the campaign. When we said “We want more if we are to sell before auction” he took up the challenge and within 24 hrs came back with an offer too good to refuse. The ‘Sold’ sign went up – just 10 days after we signed with hoamz.    Do we recommend you – Yes Would we use you again – Yes Could you cope with demanding clients – Yes   Did you do everything we asked – Yes     Thanks Brendan and the team from hoamz."

Ramdass

'We would recommend Phillip De Klerk to anyone considering selling their home. Phillip’s honest and respectful nature were the two attributes that convinced us to use him as our real estate agent, and we were not disappointed. We consider that Phillip worked with our best interest in mind, having weekly open homes, communicating openly, being available to us at all times, and supporting our decisions.  Phillip also assisted with finding future accommodation for our family, which was much appreciated.  With the aid of Phillip’s extensive real estate knowledge and skills our home sold in a reasonably quick and stress free manner. We are very grateful to Phillip and the team at hoamz for their help and advice in selling our home. Because of his amazing service and commitment we would not hesitate to use Phillip in the future.'

Dean & Helena

"We would like to thank Aleisha Gutsell for all her help and assistance in the purchase of our first property. As first time buyers (buying from overseas) we were extremely overwhelmed with the purchasing process and could not have asked for a better real estate agent to see us through. Aleisha was extremely helpful with every enquiry we made, she was always quick to reply to any emails to keep us up-to-date with the progress of our purchase, she even researched into some extra council information for us. This led to us securing our dream property in just over 4 weeks from the day we enquired, to settlement! Not only did Aleisha do a great job, she exceeded our expectations in every way. We would not hesitate to recommend Aleisha to anyone looking to sell or buy property. Again, thank you Aleisha!"

Jeremy & Iesha

"I was very impressed with hoamz and in particular my agent, Aleisha Gutsell, in respect to my recent sale. Trying to sell a property while living overseas was a stressful time, but Aleisha kept in regular communication about the status of my sale. She was highly professional and after a possible hiccup, I was very happy with the solution and outcome she was able to reach for me. If I was to buy or sell again I will definitely be using Aleisha."

The auction process ran very smoothly resulting in a rapid sale and at a price well exceeding my expectations."

"We found Margot very helpful in our search for a property. We didn't have a lot of time and she was particularly flexible and accommodating at all times therefore it was less stressful than we expected at the outset."

Anna & Terry

'I was very pleased with the result that Hugh and the team got for me. Hugh also kept me fully updated on everything in the lead up to the auction and after the sale. Thanks Hugh and hoamz.'

Pete - Vendor from Southland

"We have recently sold our house in Invercargill, and used Anne Thomas from hoamz as our real estate agent.  Anne is also ably assisted by her PA Judy Cresswell. We chose Anne because we have worked with her before and knew we could trust her to do the best job for us.  Her professional manner in dealing with all aspects of the sale and purchase was exemplary, making sure everything was as it should be.  No detail too small to be attended to and regular meetings keeping us up to date with what was happening. The photos Anne took of the house we sold made it look a million dollars because of the attention to detail when taking the pictures. She also sold us the property we are now residing in and was with us all the way to the final sale. In short we would recommend Anne to anyone who is in the property market, knowing that they would get the professional assistance required for a more than satisfactory sale/purchase."

Kath & Ian

"We used hoamz to sell our Lake Hayes Estate house in mid 2016. We found Emma to be extremely hard working and diligent from the start of the campaign until the end. Her attention to detail and meticulousness in following up every task gave us great peace of mind. We always felt confident that all measures were being used to maximise the presence and appeal of our house on the market. We would recommend Emma to anyone."  

Ben & Diana

"We used hoamz to sell our Lake Hayes Estate house in mid 2016. Brendan’s relaxed and jovial character belies his vast local experience and expertise. During the selling of our house, his advice and strategy were always 100% correct. His proficiency led directly to the result that we got; our house was on the market for a little over a week and it sold for more than we expected. We would not hesitate to use Brendan’s services again in the future."

Ben & Diana

"You are and have been fantastic, positive, fast, professional in all your approach!! Thank you."

Emma

"It is fair to say I was looking at property at the lower end of the price range. However, Ged treated me as if I was his only client. Ged was very approachable and tried very hard to arrange visits and suit-me timeframes. At no time did I find myself under pressure from Ged to make a decision even in a very hot property market. hoamz realestate provide a very friendly atmosphere while being very professional in all areas of our purchase process. At no time was I placed under any pressure to make a decision nor did I felt coerced in to making a decision. I was kept up to date with progress of the purchase."

"Once again Anne Thomas has been a delight to deal with during the sale of our home. She provided us with documented weekly feedback from open homes and appointments.  Anne was always very honest and reliable, respectful, positive and realistic and we would be happy to recommend her services."

Allan & Denise

"We recently sold our Queenstown unit through Jannette, who we found to be very efficient and always on the job (even when she was on holiday!) This was our only time of being involved in the real estate business and Jannette made it a simple process for us, in spite of our leaky home building making it more complicated. She was excellent at following up on the small, but important details and we certainly felt that she was working in our best interests. Nothing was a problem to her and we very much enjoyed our contact with her and felt she had gone the extra mile."

Ron & Gay

"When we decided to put our house and motel on the market we decided to go with hoamz because we had noticed they had already had quite a bit of success selling houses in Glenorchy. We were very glad we did. Right from the start we noticed that hoamz was willing to go the extra mile. Stephen Thompson, our agent, went through the property with us and put together a comprehensive kit able to be emailed to prospective buyers. We were kept in the loop by regular reports and frequent contact. We were given plenty of warning (when possible) of viewings coming up and he always took the time to let us know what the potential buyers had said or commented on after a viewing, and was quick to follow up with any queries. The actual sale of our property has gone smoothly and I have no hesitation in recommending Steve and hoamz to anyone else selling their property."

Thor and Corrine

"We have sold homes in the past. It was stressful, time consuming and ultimately the results were disappointing. This time we listed with Brendan Quill and Emma Wilcock.  From the market appraisal, through to guidance around presentation, viewing and negotiations they were amazing.  Where there was an opportunity to raise the level of presentation he made those recommendations.   We felt that their attention to detail in marketing helps distinguish them from the rest. In fact the whole team at Hoamz is pretty awesome, they even lent us scaffolding to finish touch up painting. The result exceptional. Would we use them again - absolutely. Any hesitation in recommending them? Absolutely not."

Paul & Susan

"Nicole was amazing!"

Barbara & David - Vendors from Oamaru

"Maria recently sold our section in Jacks Point. We found Maria to be professional and efficient in all aspects of the sale process. She was very approachable and was knowledgeable about the property market in Queenstown and was therefore able to maximise the sale price for our section. We would recommend Maria to other parties."

Peter & Julie

"It is with extreme pleasure I can recommend Anne Thomas in all aspects of home buying, selling, looking or any aspect of real estate you have to discuss. She is one in a million and I can say that with experience, having been a school teacher for 40 years from 1960 and having dealt with up to 20 real estate agents in my various moves. You will never regret making her acquaintance in business and I am so grateful for all her help – a lot of which was over and above, especially since my wife died. Thank you Anne for everything."

Conrad

"Dear Stephen, I can’t thank you enough for finding the perfect property for our rental investment. You were a pleasure to work with and we appreciate the effort that you put in during the search. You are definitely the best real estate agent I have ever dealt with. Many thanks."

Casey

"What a fantastic result!!!  Hugh and the hoamz sales and admin team have been amazing and the property sold in record time.  Thank you guys.  I’d recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell property here."

Susan - Vendor from Glenorchy

“We have used Kath many many times, this was our first auction and Kath and her team were so fabulous to deal with I wouldn’t even consider going anywhere else”   

Maxine

"Anne is a wonderful and very caring woman, who we had the pleasure of contracting through hoamz, in the sale process of our family home. We knew that Anne was a winner, right from her first introduction. She stands high above the rest, in her empathy, and human feelings that she, and only she, could bring to our house sale contract and negotiations. Anne Thomas brings the humanity back into a house sale. Thanks so much."

The Hawkes family

"We found hoamz to be very efficient and knowledgeable throughout the whole sale process, we never felt any pressure. They totally understood our situation and worked with us on such a personal level we felt right from the start that hoamz was the best choice for us. We cannot thank Stephen Hebbend enough for his efforts, empathy and understanding during the process of the sale - he made it very easy for us. We would most definitely recommend hoamz as a preferred choice of agents to anyone buying or selling."

Jackie & Tracy

“We have worked in partnership with Chris over the last 10 years, during this time Chris has successfully marketed and sold 5 subdivisions for our company and has a unique ability to market directly off plans. Chris is dedicated to providing a professional, top class service and we would have no hesitation in recommending Chris to anyone looking for a real estate agent.”

SIVAD Enterprises

"Thank you Hugh - we were very pleased to receive a great pre auction offer, selling our home couldn't have been easier."

James & Janelle - Vendors from Shotover Country, Queenstown

"You’re the best to deal with by a country mile. I will highly recommend you. Never lose that compassion for people mate. As a first home buyer you normalised it for me. Much appreciated."

L MacDonald

"As an out of town buyer I found Emma to be one of the best agents I've dealt with in my 15 + years of property investing. She went above and beyond the call of duty  with airport pick up and drop off after organising viewings of multiple properties. Her knowledge of the local market in Queenstown was excellent and her sage advise helped me secure an excellent property in what is a very competitive market. I would have no hesitation in recommending Emma to anyone needing an agent in Queenstown." 

Ben

"Emma was a pleasure to deal with in every aspect. She was quick to understand what I was looking for and made great recommendations. Emma was honest, upfront and courteous in all her dealings with me. I found her helpful without being overbearing and wouldn't hesitate to use her again for any real estate needs."

Melanie

"Ged, Rog and I can't thank you enough for the way you have changed our lives in the last couple of months. Normally, selling and purchasing property is a nightmare, but you made it as smooth as possible. We are very appreciative of your genuine, honest and friendly guidance, which made the whole sale and purchase process an exciting and (pretty much) enjoyable time for us. We are very happy in our new home and will recommend you highly to anyone we know, who are in need of a real estate agent."

Marg and Roger

"I must say that Jesse was just fantastic during this whole process. I found him to be very honest, very proactive and extremely helpful during the process."

Shareen

"Thank you we have very much enjoyed working with you to, you have been amazing, and would love you to find us our next home so please keep in touch."

Pip & Phil

"Can’t thank and rate Steve highly enough. This is my second property purchase with him and once again he went well above and beyond, especially at auction as I was in the UK."

Craig

"We would like to formally say thank you very much for the professional attention to the auction of our home at 73 Howards Drive, Lake Hayes Estate. We were extremely pleased with the selling campaign and the auction result. The experience of selling our home was made all the less stressful through your professionalism and keeping us informed of prospective buyer feedback, vendor meetings and preparation of all possible outcomes at the auction. We would like to wish you all the very best for the future and would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and family."

Carl & Kirsty

"My partner and I recently bought a crib in Pounawea that was listed with Aleisha Gutsell (Hoamz Balclutha).  Aleisha was fantastic to deal with and very accommodating to our needs.  She was able to meet our needs for viewing, purchasing and settling the property sale in a way that made it easier for us as we live in Invercargill.  We found Aleisha to be friendly and very easy to deal with."

Kim

"Dave kept us very informed the whole way through and replied to all of our queries (which were many) very promptly. We have never had an agent so concerned with putting our needs first than what we experienced with Dave."

Purchaser

"I chose Rowan to sell our house because he is an old friend... someone I knew I could trust and would be a cool, calm, character in what isn't always an easy process. He went well beyond expectations in helping me prepare the house for sale and deal with every aspect of the process. He worked hard to line up buyers, kept me informed right through, and I had absolute faith in his advice, abilities and knowledge. We found Rowan to be utterly professional while retaining his sense of humour even when I had lost mine! We got a great price for our house within a fairly short time frame. I would recommend Rowan to anyone looking for a straight-up, hardworking agent who is very much in tune with the local market."

Jill

"We chose Anne to work with due to her professionalism, attention to detail and experience. We are busy people and relied on Anne to guide and direct us as she is a respected and reputable expert in her field and we knew would deliver us the best possible result. I would highly recommend Anne if you are thinking about selling your home."

Tracey & Daryl

"Amanda was so helpful to us and helped us a lot."

Delwyn

"My younger brother passed away suddenly, and as he was the only one living in the family home, we had to get it cleared out and put the house and property on the market.   Between my brother and I we called four land agents, who all came to inspect the property the day we phoned them.   We were most impressed with Margot Sutherland from hoamz real estate.   She arrived at my home next morning with all the info for selling the property.   We were really impressed by how much research she had done, and was quick to do so, we signed with Margot that same day.   In under a week the property sold, all thanks to Margot.   I was very surprised at how fast the property sold. Margot is such a genuine person and I enjoyed my time with her. I wish you all the best in your chosen Real Estate career Margot!"

Lynette

"Margot Sutherland came up with a wide range of comparable properties to ours, most had sold above their Government Valuations. Her appraisal was above my personal expectations. We put the property on the market on the Thursday afternoon and the following Tuesday the sale was completed.   Margot demonstrated a keen awareness of the market conditions for which we are most grateful."

Ross

"We thought you have been very honest, flexible with your availability, committed to helping us find a house versus simply selling a house. You have been approachable and easy to understand always happy to explain things or seek further clarification. You were able to organise a builder appropriate for us as first home buyers who was reliable and talked us through all the ins and outs of a building inspection. Even renegotiating the final price with the venders to fit into our allowed price from the bank-proof of your dedication to us as clients. We have absolutely enjoyed working with you and would most certainly refer to our friends and family!"

Alyce & Glenn

"A huge thank you to Hugh for making our house sale such a success. Having not sold a property before, Hugh helped us with all our questions and guided us through the auction process.  Hugh has communicated with us all the way through making us feel comfortable and informed.  What a genuine top bloke! Thank you Hugh."

Jo - Vendor from Shotover Country, Queenstown

"Ged’s handling of our purchase continues to be nothing short of exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble and response time is amazing."

Blair & Estelle

"Thank you so much! We know you could be trusted and have faith you will get the best price for us, that's why we didn't even hesitate to call you first! You are the best Maria! Fast, efficient, very warm and kind! Even staying up in the wee hours in the morning to get things done! So wonderful."

Jimmy

"We were very happy with the way Jannette managed the sale of our apartment. We met Jannette a number of years ago and always thought if we ever did want to sell she would be the first person we'd contact. Jannette thoroughly understood our property and provided excellent communication and reporting throughout the sale process. We achieved a good result thanks to Jannette's efforts."

Tim

"We recently sold a property through Jannette Highsted. Jannette was very thorough and professional, made the process easy for us and followed up on everything needed to ensure a swift and successful sale. We would recommend Jannette if selling property in the Queenstown Lakes area."

Anne & Malcolm

"Thank you so very much for making things happen with our home, we are absolutely thrilled. A wonderful and professional real estate agent, we couldn't be happier."

Kristy & Karl

"Steve and Echo are truly professional and passionate about real-estate.  Thank you Steve and Echo, thank you for all your help.  You have really done a great job.  You know the market very well and thank you for all the advice about the market trend.  It turned out they are very correct.  Also thank you for your focusing on detail.  You even told me to check a lot of things I've never noticed!  And thank you for all your patience to take us around and around.  Thank you!"

Farrah and Jay

"Steve and Echo are truly professional and passionate about real-estate.  Thank you Steve and Echo, thank you for all your help.  You have really done a great job.  You know the market very well and thank you for all the advice about the market trend.  It turned out they are very correct.  Also thank you for your focusing on detail.  You even told me to check a lot of things I've never noticed!  And thank you for all your patience to take us around and around.  Thank you!"

Farrah & Jay

"Selling a home for the first time can be a daunting prospect.  You simply ‘do not know what you don’t know’ other than that you need it to go as well as possible. We certainly took our time to consider who to list our property with as it was our first time and we needed plenty of guidance and advice. The decision to engage Emma was a decision we are very happy to have made.  From the very start Emma put us at ease, explained the process and provided us with some great insights. Throughout the open homes and advertising campaign we were kept up to date with what was happening and Emma went out of her way to make sure we were happy with everything. Every promise was delivered upon and the end result certainly exceeded expectations. We would not hesitate to use Emma again and would gladly recommend her to anyone."

Mel and Neil

"With Queenstown being a relatively small town there is no shortage of advice on who to list your property with and you will invariably hear a number of names mentioned again and again. Mr Quill was one of those names and not without good reason. His ability to enthuse you about the process and turn worry into excitement is something to behold. As a first-time seller, he made the experience as fun as possible and swiftly dealt with any issues as they arose. As for the auction, this is where Mr Quill comes into his own. We are confident we would not have had such a good evening should someone else have been holding the auctioneer’s hammer. Recommend him?  Yes, of course.  Not choosing Quilly would simply be a risk."

Mel & Neil

"Hi Maria. Just a quick note to thank you so much for selling our property for us. We know you have worked so hard to obtain this result with effort that could only be described as “above and beyond your duty”. You have always been an absolute delight to deal with and your “no pressure” approach meant that the sale was never stressful. We would certainly always deal with you again in any future property dealings."

Jill & Peter

"Dave Hegarty was absolutely brilliant - he worked extremely hard for us and achieved a great result."

Dianne

"We had the privilege of working with Emma in selling our house. From coming out to see us on a Sunday afternoon through to Auction day, Emma always kept us well informed and provided us advice and guidance all the way. We found Emma to be thorough and informative. We also connected with other members of the hoamz team and they were all a jolly good bunch to deal with. Professional, courteous, jovial. The whole sale process was so quick from the time the listing went live to the auction being concluded; which shows the reach that the hoamz team has."

Vinesh & Priya

"Dave was the only agent (out of all the companies in Invercargill whose open homes I had attended) who sent regular emails updating me of properties for sale. It was one of his emails that alerted me to the property."

Deborah

"Dave was an excellent consultant, he kept me updated through the whole process and was friendly and professional to deal with. I would definitely recommend him to others."

Kerry

"Phillip made it really clear right from the start that helping me achieve my goals was his main priority. Southland is very lucky to have someone of his experience and professionalism working and living here."

Robyn

"Don worked hard to make this sale happen and went above and beyond what was required of him. Don did a fantastic job bringing it to a satisfactory conclusion." (Abridged)

Rick

"We met Anne, viewed the property and liked it a lot. Anne is a kind and calm woman, who did not pressure us, but was always available to answer any question we had. Once we had made up our minds, everything went very quickly, which was what we were hoping for. Anne really went the extra mile, we could reach her at any hour and she was ready to come around with paperwork at any hour. Anne made us feel at ease and it is because of her great help that the procedure went smoothly and quickly and we are now very happy in our lovely new home. We wish Anne all the best in the future. She deserves it. Many thanks to you Anne, Judy and the team at hoamz."

Olga

Nick and the team at hoamz have sold two Queenstown properties for us in the past 12 months.  Both properties sold within days and the sale prices far exceeded our expectations.  Nick was professional and kept us well informed, and also took the time to explain the processes and options and answer all our questions.  This made the whole sales experiences stress free and easy. Thanks again for everything!

Greg & Andrea

"I found Phillip to be friendly, encouraging, supportive, honest and with integrity."

Trish

“We thought we would sell our house privately, but after inviting Jesse to our house for a market appraisal we quickly felt we were in good hands with Jesse & Richie.  Their enthusiastic yet calm demeanour made the process much less stressful and was quick to provide good advice and with no pressure.  Wanting a quick sale, we felt Jesse & Richie could deliver that for us while ensuring we were getting a fair market price.  We were blown away to get a fantastic offer after only 4 days on the market, reflecting that hard work up front to market the property.  We thank the team at hoamz for being amazingly supportive, swift, enthusiastic and providing great communication throughout the process.  Who knew it could be so easy?  Thanks Jesse, you’re a star!”

John and Rhonda

John & Rhonda

“Who would believe it could be so easy - I didn’t! I recently approached Anne Thomas of hoamz to help me sell a home. I followed her expert advice on how to prepare the property for sale and amazingly it was sold within a week – and at the full price.  It was a pleasure to deal with Anne who was open, honest in her advice and very pleasant in her approach. Judging from my experience - if you want a property sold and you want it done with as little stress as possible, contact Anne. Thank you for the opportunity to show my appreciation for a job well done."

Janice

"We would just like to say a very big thank you to hoamz and more particularly Graeme Jackson for the excellent work with the recent sale of our house in Fernhill. I admit that we were initially hesitant to go to auction but we trusted Graeme’s advice and we are very pleased that we did. Not only did the house sell after only one week on the market after offers brought the auction forward, but also well exceeded our expectations with the price that we achieved. We have worked with other real estate agents before but Graeme Jackson's friendly and refreshingly honest manner, along with his local knowledge, will always make him our first choice with any property matter from now on. We have already and will continue to recommend Graeme to anybody considering buying or selling property in the future. Thank you again for the whole stress-free professional process."

Damian & Sally

"We always found Anne to be an extremely honest, trustworthy and hard working person.  Whilst regarding her as a friend she was always very professional in every aspect of her role. She always followed through on what she said she would do and the regular feedback from both her and her team was always excellent. Anne has a very warm and caring manner and although we know she is very busy, we always felt like ours was the only home she was marketing because she always had time to listen and advise when required.  We will always highly recommend Anne to anyone who is considering buying or selling property - in fact we have already done so on a number of occasions.   We consider Anne outstanding in her field which is why she is so successful and she will always be our number one go-to person if and when we require these services in the future. A very positive experience."

Graeme & Heather

"She nailed it! Thanks Nicole, extremely stoked with the whole campaign. From the initial consultation, right through to auction day everything was made perfectly clear. It was a pleasure to have Nicole as my agent as she is professional, informative and available at the drop of a hat. I had no difficulty choosing Nicole as my agent right from the start. Having lived and worked in Queenstown in excess of 10 years and having strong working relationships with many of the agents in Queenstown, Nicole was a clear choice in terms of personality and a very driven nature. It was obvious I had made the right choice when the Open Homes started. Plenty of interest, great buyer feedback from the hoamz team and of course an epic result. If you want to sell your home for the least inconvenience and the best price, I highly recommend you call in Nicole and the hoamz team."

Kate

"To coin a phrase ‘put your money where your mouth is’ Brendan’s your man, if you want energy and excitement at your auction, Brendan’s your man, if you want total honesty and enthusiasm, Brendan’s your man. If you want experience and professionalism, Brendan’s your man, if you want to sell in 8 days…Brendan…you the man!!! Thank you for your energy and expertise Quilly!"

Sian

Straight away Emma puts you at total ease with her natural calmness and ability to get so much done for you in so little time! (8 days!) With a young child and a newborn to juggle whilst selling a house right before Christmas you would think this would be the worst experience ever, thank you to Emma’s sheer hard work and perfect communication and compassion she made the whole experience enjoyable and exciting, going above and beyond for the ultimate results! Thanks Emma you are a star!!

Sian

In both the selling of our existing and the purchasing of our new home Anne was so positive, helpful and thorough in ensuring our goals and expectations were met. She kept us fully informed at all times and made a stressful time so very easy and enjoyable. We were very impressed with her professionalism, dedication, honesty and caring nature. We would certainly use her again. We would recommend her to anybody requiring Real Estate services, and have already done so. Thank you again Anne for everything you did to help us. Forever grateful.

Ken & Margaret

On 1-10 basis with 1 being the highest and 10 the lowest I would rate Anne Thomas a +1. Anne helped me buy a house which is a new build with finishing to be done. She spoke with the builder on occasions on one or two things that I suggested. Her help was exceptional and nothing was a bother. Anne is a good estate agent, is not pushy and allows you to take as much time as is needed always ready to answer questions. It has never been a bother for her to arrange more visits to the house. I can recommend Anne as one of the best agents I have worked with.  

Doreen

We chose Anne as our agent because of her integrity. Anne and team did a great job in selling our property, many thanks.

Peter & Karyn

"I met Emma a year ago whilst living in Cromwell and commuting into Queenstown each day. She encouraged me to buy a second property in Queenstown after talking to me about the process she went through to secure her own rental property in Christchurch. Being on a single income with a child to support, it took a lot of courage at the time, but with Emma's helpful approach, knowledge and support, I secured my second property and a nearly a year on am very happy with the outcome. Emma is a great person to deal with, she listens carefully and is thoughtful and considered in applying her knowledge. I'd recommend her to potential sellers and buyers in the Queenstown market." 

Rosemary

“We would highly recommend listing your property with Nicole Bell at hoamz. Our month-long auction campaign with hoamz was painless. Not only did we have Nicole’s constant attention, but we also had the support of the entire hoamz team; they were respectful, on time and did a great job at minimising disruption to our household. Nicole’s extensive sales and marketing experience was evidenced by the large amount of interest she brought to our auction resulting in extremely happy vendors, one happy buyer and several sad losers on the day. Nicole has in depth knowledge of the Arrowtown and Queenstown property markets and if you list with hoamz you can be sure of a professional, efficient campaign designed to provide you with the ideal outcome.”

Jo & Steve

"We are very happy with the work that Aleisha Gutsell did for us in selling our house. Always kept us informed on what was happening and handled it all in a professional and honest way. It certainly sold a lot quicker than we anticipated, thank you  Aleisha for a job well done, we would recommend you."

Mark & Maureen

"Hugh was great and we would definitely buy/sell through him again."

Gary – Home buyer from Queenstown

"Jannette is probably the best agent I have encountered in 50 years for customer service and all round capability."

Neville

"I can tell you after approaching every real estate agency in Queenstown and over 10 different agents in Queenstown, at one stage or another over the past year whilst we were looking to purchase in Queenstown, Richie was the only agent I came across that kept in personal contact with us, and actually showed interest in our real estate wants and needs. He was an excellent negotiator, achieving a result I think both us as the purchaser and the seller were happy with. His local knowledge in Queenstown is unsurpassed, he is always happy, always has a smile on his face, and is just a really good person and a joy to be around. Since he we have purchased, he has been incredibly helpful organising the tradesman we need to make the house how we would like it. And has spent tens of hours helping us post sale, something he does not get paid for. I can not recommend Richie enough, he is not just a real Estate Agent, he offers a full service when it comes to purchasing, particularly for people like us who live in Australia, and find it hard to organise all the things we need for the sale and post sale."

Steven

"Margot Berney was just awesome!"

Andy

"We had the pleasure of dealing with Nicole for the sale of our property, and we could not be happier.  She was extremely helpful and had great advice right from the start. Nicole was great at keeping in touch and always available when needed, even with our long work hours she was there for us. We truly felt from the beginning that we could trust her and that she had our best interests at heart. We would recommend her services to anyone.  The whole process was very easy and stress free and I look forward to keeping in touch with her in the future."

Gina and Warren

"Rowan McDonald is a very professional, proactive and trustworthy agent with extensive knowledge of the Queenstown market. We found him to be both genuine  and empathic in all our dealings. This, combined with his experience in Real Estate, led to the successfully sale of our home. We would have no hesitation in recommending or using him again."

Margie & Ned

“John and I were very impressed with Steve Lindsay's professionalism, attention to detail and communication as well as his knowledge of the Tourism Industry. The sale process was seamless and Steve's high attention to detail and his sensitivity of the confidential nature of the sale was really appreciated. We wouldn't hesitate to engage his services in the future or recommend him to friends and family - thank you Steve.”

Amanda & John

"On behalf of Mandy and myself we would dearly like to thank Richie for all of his hard work to sell our house. He has been very professional throughout and has done everything in his power to keep us focused on what was important, especially when we forgot this at times through the negotiating process. You not only have a great salesman in Richie but he is also a fantastic ambassador for your company. Our house was on the market on and off for 4 years and we tried (other companies) before we came to our senses and came to your company, where Richie achieved what no other agent could! Thank you very much for everything that you did for us."

James & Mandy

"Randomly I called into hoamz Queenstown to learn more about the local property market. I met Nicole Bell and she demonstrated complete and thorough knowledge on the property market and current trends. Nicole continued to keep me updated and whilst I had no intention to sell my property it became apparent that Nicole had a strong book of buyers and presented us with attractive interest for our property. Throughout the whole process Nicole was very professional and informative with her communication. I was impressed how transparent she was regarding all facets of the successful negotiation. I have no problems in recommending using Nicole for either buying or selling whether it be now or in the future."

Cameron

"I will give Brendan Quill 10 out of 10 for his amazing help throughout the long process of selling our home and land in Queenstown. Without his amazing attitude, patience, knowledge and help with Local Council and all other Legal entities (as we live out of town) without Brendon's help we would never have had the process go as smoothly, A huge thank you Brendan."

Sue

"I find this the opportune time to thank Stephen very much for selling us our new home in Mary Street and selling our house in Tanner Street. We would just like to say how professional and easy it was. We met Stephen at an open home, which we purchased shortly after. Then came the arduous task of selling our own. We went to 3 different real estate companies for prices and put a lot of thought into who to list with. The decision in the end, to go with Stephen, was because he worked exceptionally well at getting the best price for the vendors of the house we bought, so we assumed he would do the same for us. As we have lived in our home for 57 years, this whole process has been huge. Our house was listed on the Monday and sold by Wednesday, at full asking price. No stress not even an open home. Throughout the whole process, every phone call was answered or returned within 5 minutes. Very prompt with appointments at the house. And very patient with all the family involved, helping us through the process. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to family and friends."

Bev & Ray

"I'd like to thank you personally for all of your efforts, enthusiasm and energy in showing me around a few weeks ago. It was a wonderfully positive experience and I enjoyed meeting you. Thank you so much."

Geoff

"Kath had an efficient and friendly, yet professional approach to selling our home, which has made for a quick and stress-free sale. We would fully recommend Kath to anyone wishing to sell their home."

"Maria and the team at hoamz were great to work with, both on the sale of our current home and the purchase of our new one. We really appreciate all of the hard work Maria put in to get us the outcome that we wanted. Friendly, efficient, and thorough, we would highly recommend them."  

Hayden and Lisa

"We wish to acknowledge the expert attention we were given by Jannette Highsted hoamz Oueenstown when deciding to sell our property. From the first introduction we were impressed with her expertise, communication skills, knowledge of the area and the advice she gave us - and the result - the property sold within a week, proving her professional work is outstanding. We have no hesitation in recommending Jannette."

Barbara & Pat

"Kath Cruikshank is simply brilliant! She understands the market and has an immense amount of local knowledge. She knows what is necessary to present the property and has all the contacts to make it happen. Kath is down to earth, reliable and tells it as it is. She knew the market trends and identified the key areas needed to sell the house. She organised everything for me and sold my Goldfields Heights property for a great price. My decision to appoint her as the agent for the property was simple.  She sold the property to me and had managed the rental for a number of years. During this time I found Kath to be an ethical and honest person and I would highly recommend her." 

John

"Enter Brendan Quill.  The decision to list with Brendan and hoamz was two fold. The first decision was to choose a company that specialises in the type of property that we had to sell. To choose a listing agent is for me is more complex issue . My age and experience means that I do not suffer fools and I have to say that there are fools that work in Queenstown’s Real Estate industry. Brendan is no fool because he follows the instructions given to him but more importantly conveys those same instructions to the sales team that work with him. He also is aware of my black and white nature, respect for tenants and no nonsense approach. The net result is that I have all of hoamz sales team working for me, all at the same time.  Brendan has the ability to portray to his vendors that he is actually selling your property himself when in fact in our case he did not sell either of our properties. The advantage of the previous sentence. Yet if someone asked me who sold your property I who probably say Brendan Quill. What I should have said is it’s all about building relationships. It's not about a company is only ever about people. Brendan Quill - Well done Son." (abridged)

Ken - Very happy vendor

"Working with Jannette from Hoamz Real Estate has been a positive experience. Selling the apartment  at Pounamu could have turned into a minefield, but information required was either acquired or requested in a systematic way. Tasks within the office were handed around and handled efficiently by any of Jannette's colleagues with a high level of competence and continuance. Potential purchasers were quickly located and the transaction completed in a very short time and to the satisfaction of all parties. Our lawyer suggested to us that this had been one of the more honest and straightforward exchanges that she had processed."

John

"Our experience: Vivien and I are truly thankful and delighted with Maria's execution of our sale at Jacks Point. Maria's impressive repertoire of deals has prompted us to engage her as our negotiator. We heed her advice and trusted her instinct throughout the process of the sale. The first offer came at the price we wanted and the rest is history. Maria's aptitude and feel for the property market is outstanding. We would recommend Maria to our friends." 

Douglas and Vivien

"In February 2015 we contacted Richie Heap from Hoamz in Queenstown to evaluate our property on Queenstown Hill with a view to selling the above for us. After inspection Richie advised us that in order to achieve a good price for the property we  would need to carry out a total renovation inside and outside. As we are based in Sydney we asked Richie if he would be willing to organise the quotes from the numerous subcontractors needed to carry out these renovations. He agreed so the works commenced. During the renovations he was constantly on the job inspecting the progress of the work if problems arose and there were plenty during a project of this size so he was on the phone liasing with us in order to resolve the situations as they arose. We found the tradesmen that he organised were reasonable with their prices and the quality of their work was excellent. We achieved a sale price of over $250,000 more than we were quoted before the renovations - certainly worth the effort, the property sold within 2 weeks of listing so well done Richie. If you were considering selling your property in the Queenstown area we would highly recommend you give Richie a ring."  

Bob & Kathy

"After toying with the idea of selling our investment property ourselves, we soon realised that the services of a professional were much in need, ending our short lived "career in real estate" and we certainly made the right call! Richie is a true professional, with an energetic and warming manner that made the entire process seamless and enjoyable. Keeping us informed at every turn, he made us feel very comfortable in entrusting him with this asset. Richie gave us sound advice on the market and it allowed us to reach realistic expectations for the sale. The end result was that Richie sold the property above the asking price, so it's more than fair to say his efforts well exceeded our expectations. We can highly recommend Richie, and his genuine care of service is a stand out. Thank you so much Richie!"

Karl & Tanya

"We would like to tell you how very impressed we have been with Ged’s work on our behalf to sell the apartment. He is a wonderful agent to work with, very helpful and understanding, and he presents as a very genuine and caring person who is eager to put the needs of the client first and do his best on their behalf. He is also very good at “expectations management” and gently and tactfully suggesting if a client may be overly ambitious in their asking price. It has been a pleasure to work with Ged and he has certainly ensured your business has a reputation in our eyes for honesty, integrity, and attention to detail. We know that when we return to the Queenstown property market we will seek out Ged and your business to work with us to find what we are looking for."

Megan and Arthur

"Thank you so much for selling my apartment for me. I know it was a bit of a challenge for you as you had to deal with tenants and the rental agency. I appreciate your efforts and your professionalism in securing the sale and keeping me updated on the progress ..always a pleasure to deal with you.  Many thanks" 

Iain

"THANK YOU HUGH! I can’t say enough good things about this real estate agent. His honesty, integrity, communication, negotiation skills and general air of calm made what could have been a stressful process so easy. Hugh kept us up to date at every stage without ever being annoying. He presented our options clearly to us, made sure we understood everything, and had genuine knowledge of both the market itself and the best ways to promote our property within it. He took us from reluctant sellers to his biggest advocates, on a journey that can only be described as enjoyable – something we never thought could happen. Hugh Clark comes highly recommended by some very fussy sellers – put him to work!"

Dominic - Vendor from Queenstown

“Thank you for all your help and support, this would never have happened without yours and Quilly’s extra effort. A sincere thank you, I appreciate everything you have both done for me.”

Charlotte

“Very recently a team from your office, headed by Garry Pankhurst were successful in listing and selling our home at 39 Elm Street Ave, Frankton, Queenstown. My husband and myself have previously experienced selling our homes, together and separately.  We just want to congratulate your firm on the high quality and standards Garry and “The Team” exercised throughout.  You are to be congratulated on employing people of such high skills and class. Garry, could not have explained all detail – open homes, etc down to “The Auction” any better and are certain he will continue to keep us posted until all is finalized.  A top salesman!! Special recommendation has to be given to our “Auctioneer”, Brendan Quill.  He is clever, witty, polite and worked hard for our price.  A natural for his position.  Again congratulations. We would also like to highlight a couple of agents we saw a fair amount and strongly recommend – Fiona McDonald and Graeme Jackson, however it was “the team job”, done by all that we thank you for, and strongly recommend any and all from your firm to future clients.”

Lex & Hazel

“Having decided to list our home with Garry, my husband and I were impressed with his prompt service and the results achieved. Garry priced our property to meet the market and presented us with an offer of the asking price within three days.  When the first offer did not confirm he quickly acted to bring a second offer in two more days. The sale of our property was wrapped up within three weeks of our initial discussions and we felt that Garry’s enthusiasm and efficiency made it easy for us.  We are happy to recommend his services to future clients.”

Debbie & Matthew

“Many thanks for your efforts re sale of Aachen Motel, until you came along about 3 months ago we were just drifting along with several real estate firms waiting hopefully for someone to appear out of the woodwork. In hindsight this was never going to happen. You introduced some reality to the situation when we realised that to sell we had to be prepared to meet the market. With your help we certainly did and we are very happy sellers.  You also kept us informed re progress, which was very much appreciated, something other agents could learn from. Once again thanks very much.”

Albert & Christine

“Garry Pankhurst has recently undertaken the sale of our commercial property, a Wine Bar/Cafe and Bed & Breakfast, and has procured for us a very satisfactory result. This was a somewhat lengthy process and throughout he has been helpful, positive, courteous and professional in all his dealings. We are more than happy to recommend him to any future clients.”

Rob & Mary

“Thank you Garry for the smooth and very fast sale of our house in Lake Hayes Estate. It was a good idea to put our house on the market before we went on holiday, and certainly a good surprise to have a sale signed up while still away. Thanks again for giving us good advice and arranging a smooth transition for us.”

Stephen

“Thank you again for selling our house. We appreciated your professionalism and honesty throughout the marketing of our house and this was one of the reasons we listed with you. One of the things that impressed us about the entire team was their involved throughout the time our house was on the market. We found your team to be friendly at all times and appreciated the constant feedback through emails and phone calls after open homes and private viewings. We believe it is because you guys work as team that we sold our house.”

Shelly & Greg

“We have been dealing with Stephen as our real estate agent for approximately 12 months now. During that time he has successfully sold two houses for us and helped us to acquire a house that we so desperately wanted.  Throughout the whole course of this time, we have found Stephen to be of impeccable honesty and integrity. He was very knowledgeable about the market and what was happening in it and advised us accordingly yet still left us to make our own decisions.  He was open and extremely approachable and nothing was ever too much trouble or question ever too trivial. We felt most confident in his decisions and felt that he gave us the time we needed to decide on things. What stood out most for both of us was that we trusted him and as a consequence, trusted his team and found them all to be highly professional at all times. We have no hesitation in recommending Stephen to anyone interested in buying or selling real estate or for anything else for that matter as we have found him to be extremely professional, reliable and courteous at all times.”

Mark & Myschel

“Stephen Hebbend has helped both ourselves and friends of ours purchase a few investment properties over the years. To buy property from overseas over the internet can be very risky but Stephen provided us with all the information we needed to make sound decisions.  He impressed us with taking care of all the extra things that were required in our absence.  He was both honest and thorough in providing us not only extensive photos and sound pricing knowledge, but also information about location and any neighbouring concerns of the properties. Finally he provided all the information and documents to enable our purchases from overseas to be a smooth and easy process. Stephens sound advice has resulted in a profit for us on our investment properties over the years and our friends still have their successful rental investments. Thanks Stephen we are very appreciative of your trustworthiness and expertise.”

Philippa

“Chris and I would like to express our gratitude and thanks for your tireless assistance in purchasing a property while based in a country outside of New Zealand. Stephen, your dedication has no boundaries. Giving up your Sunday with family to show Chris and myself numerous properties.  You showed great wisdom and skill in negotiating for us and provided valuable advice when required. Nothing was ever too much trouble for you or the team at hoamz. We have never met a real estate agent with the same passion, enthusiasm or integrity. Thank you, we will definitely be life long customers and friends.”

Pamela & Chris

“I have known Stephen Hebbend for over 15 years as a Real Estate Sales Consultant. Stephen is undoubted, reliable, trustworthy and has a vast knowledge of the market and industry through the years of experience in the business. His service to his clients is of a very high standard.”

Murray

“We had a home that we loved but we were in the wrong city so we approached hoamz to see if they would market our house. Stephen Hebbend was the person that we contacted and this was to be the first of many good choices made in the whole process. We had a small window of opportunity to sell our house before Christmas and after all of the hoamz team had viewed our place it was decided to go to Auction in 4 weeks from start to finish. For a start the photos Stephen took of the place were fantastic and set the tone for the rest of the professional handling we got from hoamz. The blurb was drawn up and the signs made. Mail drops and flyers sent out and all the information was placed on many internet sites with constant feedback from Stephen. Stephen worked hard with open homes on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and phoned after each one with a quick report and up date. Also working well into the evening with interested parties’ right up to the auction. Auction day came and after a phone call or two and a visit from Stephen and the Auctioneer who put us at ease, the time came to head to the office and get the ball rolling. With such a great auctioneer there was no way the house was not going to sell and with a bang of the hammer it was sold. All the hard work from the hoamz team and my wife had paid off.”

Scott & Lisa

“Nicola and I found Stephen to be friendly, professional and outcome oriented when we purchased a home in Invercargill in 2000. A challenging transaction and obviously working for the vendor, Stephen made us feel comfortable about the transaction and the decision we were making. I have subsequently maintained contact with Stephen and would recommend him and his services to anyone.”

Wayne

 “I have known Stephen for some years. He works in a tough and competitive industry. Even with this, he has always maintained his integrity and personal values which are very high. I value these characteristics!”

David

“Stephen offers professional real estate services to our mutual clients and is always prepared to go the "extra mile".”

Tony

“We approached Stephen in 2010 regarding the purchase of a property in Queenstown. We found Stephen to be trustworthy and reliable at all times, leading to a successful outcome.”

Derrick

“Stephen is an outstanding person and real estate agent who always shows the highest integrity in his business dealings. We have been extremely impressed by his honesty and commitment to our cause. We would thoroughly recommend Stephen to anyone wanting to sell or buy a property.”

Myschel

“We have worked with Stephen on several occasions in the past, both buying and selling real estate, and have again recently listed our home with him. We have always found him to be easy to deal with, honest and reliable, and have always achieved a good result in our dealings with him. We have found he listens to what we are saying, provides good feedback, and puts in the effort required to get a result. We have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone needing his expertise.”

Suzan

“Just a wee note to thank you sincerely for your time and dealings we had with you recently in the sale of our property. It was indeed a pleasure (and a much more pleasant experience that I have endured in the past!) to have you handle our sale. I thank you for the manner in which you conducted your business which we found very sincere, professional and efficient. We will recommend you and your team to anyone we hear might be needing the services of a realtor.”

Karen & Paul

“Just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help, time and effort. Thank you for always being so patient.”

Prescilla

“We have worked with Stephen for approximately 20 years and we are really pleased with hoamz. We were treated with respect and honesty and would use hoamz and Stephen again should the need arise.”

Joan & Trustees

“Stephen was very professional at all times. As a buyer, I felt that he was honest and had integrity and he was respectful at all times.”

Joy

“It is with pleasure that I write these few words to thank Stephen and the team at hoamz Realestate for the very professional manner in which they presented my home for sale recently and consequently gained an excellent result in a very short time. It was very 'stress free'. Well done!”

Elaine

“Just a little note to thank you so much for your help with the recent sale of Dad’s unit in Catherine Street, we are very pleased with the result you achieved for us. Your kindness, prompt service, attention to detail and professional manner have greatly impressed us. We look forward to working with you in the future and will have no hesitation in recommending you to family, friends and work colleagues. “

Ann & Greg

“I was very happy with the service and advice provided by Stephen, he always kept us updated. He had a great manner about him, presented himself well, was down-to-earth and a pleasure to deal with. I really couldn’t ask for more!”

Michael

“Stephen was very professional at all times and communicated extremely well throughout the whole process. As a buyer, I felt that he was honest, had integrity and was respectful. He made himself available to show us through properties at times that suited us. Being from out of town, we flew down for a day and had a lot of properties to view. He bent over backwards to help us complete the deal. I would certainly use hoamz in the future. Thanks Stephen!”

Malcolm & Suzanne

“Stephen was really helpful and went out of his way to help.”

Richard & Megan

“As an out of town vendor, who was acting on behalf of a family, I found Stephen easy to work with and prepared to go the extra mile. He acted with professionalism and understanding and kept me fully informed throughout the sale process.”

Jeanette

“We would like to thank Stephen for his 110% effort in selling our property. From when he first walked through the door, to the sale of the house, we were kept well informed with weekly reports via emails and phone calls. Stephen impressed us with his friendly and positive attitude. There were no overinflated promises to satisfy our egos, just a confidence of a price that we could and did achieve. We highly recommend Stephen Hebbend & his team to anyone selling or buying a property and would not hesitate to use him again. Thank you Stephen”

Riki & Anne

“I am happy to recommend Stephen as an easy-going and informative real estate agent. When I first approached him he did not waste my time in trying to sell me the wrong houses but took me immediately to one that matched the description I wanted. Once the offer was in Stephen was helpful in ensuring everything was managed correctly and in trying to find the answer to any queries I had. Great to work with, greatly appreciated.”

Richard

“Having used Stephen Hebbend previously and also recently. I found his ability as a sales person very pleasant and a most engaging person to deal with and I would recommend him to any future clients. “

Alice

“Stephen Hebbend was excellent. Lovely personality and he was a pleasure to do business with. Thanks Stephen, I love my home!”

Helen 

“We can honestly say that we found our sales agent Stephen to be the best we have ever dealt with over a 26 year period of having properties. In our opinion, Stephen went well beyond his role in the entire process from initial contact to purchase of our first property as an investor, both in his professional demeanour and his friendly, helpful manner. We highly recommend hoamz to anyone.”

Ross & Katrina

“Very pleased with Stephen and would highly recommend him to anyone in the future. He worked hard for us and also he took an interest in what we wanted.”

Margaret & Donald

“Thank you so much for all your help with our house – you really sold it to us and we both thank our lucky stars that it was you on the desk that morning!”

Simon & Nina

1 Silverwood Lane, Kelvin Heights “The above property had been on a general listing for approximately four months, when we approached Maria Wyndham regarding marketing on a sole agency with your company. Maria was very positive about the property, and mapped out a marketing strategy with us, whilst allowing us to have some input into the plan. Within two weeks Maria had matched the property to some of her clients, and an offer was made for the property. There were some issues with the title and permits, due to a previous sub-division, which had to be checked by the Council authorities, however Maria did all of the research and investigation, and was able to satisfy the purchasers that these were not an issue. Maria has worked very hard on this sale, and especially in a quiet period, and also in a time of slight uncertainty in the market, she has managed to secure an unconditional sale at a price that was most satisfactory to us. We are very grateful to Maria for her professionalism and enthusiasm shown during the sale of our property. We would have no hesitation in recommending Maria to anyone selling or purchasing a house in the Queenstown Southern Lakes District.”

Nigel & Marlene

“A little note to thank you for all your consistently hard work over the time it took to sell our house. It’s a stressful time selling a house and even when I got testy you always remained calm, cheerful, helpful and patient. You and the team are a great crew and I loved the fun you brought into even the dullest of days. To get the sale together, you and Quilly (Agent Gold Tooth) worked extremely hard and tenaciously and showed intelligent handling of a stubborn stalemate. Well done and thankyou.”

Shirley

“Recently we have been successful in selling our property at auction through your company with Maria Wyndham as our agent. Maria was thorough in her approach ensuring we were fully aware of all processes through our initial discussions and subsequent meetings with her. We were kept well-informed, prior to and following open homes, and of the activity surrounding prospective purchasers. Maria advised us to attend an auction prior to our own which we found very helpful giving us a thorough understanding of what to expect. Her attention to detail ensured all the necessary paperwork prior to auction was completed so that on the evening the auction unfolded as smoothly as possible. We have been very pleased with the professionalism and whole team approach when dealing with them and in particular Maria and would recommend her and them to any potential vendors.”

Clive & Joy

“I first met Maria Wyndham around five years ago when I was looking to purchase property in Queenstown. My wife and I had specific needs in a property so not just any house would be appropriate. Maria took the time to understand our needs and actively set about compiling a number of houses that would meet our requirements. Over the years circumstances continued to change for us, keeping us overseas and delaying our move to Queenstown. During this time Maria continued to search out properties and keep us updated on the state of the property market here. We trusted Maria’s opinion and on the occasions we were in Queenstown we viewed the properties Maria suggested. Earlier this year we found the perfect property and Maria negotiated the purchase for us while we were out of town. Throughout the entire process we have found Maria to be very thorough, extremely professional, proactive and always pleasant. Other agents may have walked away given the length of time spent looking but Maria stayed with it and completed the sale. I highly recommend Maria to potential buyers and sellers.”

Brett G

“Maria Wyndham did a superb job in helping me to buy a stunning house in Queenstown within a week during the last week of February 2010. She displays initiative and dedication to her clients to secure the best solution for their needs. Maria is easily the best real estate agent I have ever worked with - I have had dealings with over 15 agents either buying or selling homes. My biggest thanks goes to Maria for her tireless efforts in trying to help me to buy a home within 6 days - we spent up to 11 hours a day together. You are an amazingly dedicated customer-focused sales person. I felt I could put my complete trust in you and you were willing to help me in any way possible. Her enthusiasm and attention to detail helped me secure a beautiful home for my family. She continously went beyond the call of duty. When I next buy or sell a property in Queenstown Maria will definitely be my first choice of agents. Many thanks for all of your help and I would not hesitate in recommending Maria and the hoamz team.”

Corey S

“We have known Maria Wyndham for a number of years.  On every occasion, Maria has been extemely professional in her conduct, amazingly helpful - requests have always been met with enthusiasm and efficiency, furthermore Maria is a delight to interact with. We highly recommend and greatly appreciate meeting Maria.”

Peter & Elaine K

“We were looking through the property press and saw a house we wanted to view. We called Southern Lakes (now hoamz) and Maria answered the phone. We found Maria to be professional and friendly – and certainly not pushy like other agents we have found in the past. As Queenstown is a small town we wanted to stick with 1 agent whom we knew we could rely on and who would look after our interests and knew what we were looking for. Maria continued to seek properties that would appeal to us and found us the “ perfect “ house. After the sale was complete Maria brought us some great wine and gift basket which was very much appreciated. We would certainly recommend Maria to any potential buyer or vendor – we are sure that she will do a great job for them too.”

Virginia & Ross

“We would like to thank you for helping us with our purchase in Queenstown. The months of emails asking lots of questions were always answered promptly with good information, enabling us to be well informed about the market before we got there. Your understanding of our requirements made formulating a list of properties to view and finding our property much easier. We really enjoyed the experience and look forward to catching up with you again soon.”

Dave, Jeff & Cindy

“I just wanted to send you a note to thank you for your excellent service during our property search. We initially began our search by looking at properties on the internet. During this process we contacted quite a number of real estate agents. Most simply did not respond at all or were very unhelpful when they did. Your responses were quick, informative and very helpful. You took the time to try and understand the type of property that we were looking for and made numerous suggestions to help us in our search. Whilst we were in Queenstown your organization of home viewings and willingness to give constructive and honest feedback was excellent and this very much helped us in our decision making process. Also your friendly demeanor put us immediately at ease and your “go the extra mile attitude” allowed us to find the right property in a very short time. I would certainly not hesitate to recommend you as the real-estate agent of choice to anyone. Could you please forward this on to your supervisor as I would very much like them to know how satisfied we are with your service.”

Jeff & Dave

“Maria’s intelligent and subtle approach make her a pleasure for prospective buyers to deal with. She ascertains the buyers’ real objectives and circumstances in a straightforward and non-intrusive way, and then applies impressive amounts of industry and market knowledge to finding the right property at the right price for them. Her natural energy and courteousness make the whole process as quick and painless as possible.”

George

“Recently we sold our house at auction with Maria Wyndham in your company. We had no idea about the auction, we didn't even have any experiences of selling a house. So we were little bit nervous when we first approached Maria. But Maria has always been helpful and patient, she explained to us the situation over and over until we 100% understood and her cheerful personality always made us feel relaxed and confident. She always kept us well informed what was going on and what we needed to do next, so we didn't have to worry about anything. Everything went smoothly and we could sell our house in a short period. We are very pleased with Maria and would recommend her to anyone selling or purchasing a house in Queenstown.”

Michiyo & Yukio

“Ian and I wish to thank you for the wonderful service you have provided for us in selling our home and the purchase of our new townhouse. We found the whole process was dealt with in a professional, friendly manner and nothing was too much trouble. Our questions were always answered in a prompt manner and staff were always a pleasure to deal with. Already I have referred your services to people that have come through the Job Agency. When the time comes to go through the process all again (hopefully not for a year or so!!!) you will definitely be the first ones we contact.”

Vicki & Ian

“Maria's laid-back manner, no pressure approach and willingness to supply us with all information requested made our house hunting and resulting purchase a pleasure.”

Mike & Keiko

“Maria is a very professional Estate Agent that I engaged with. I am very happy I was introduced to her as from the day I approached her till the day my apartment sold, I did not have to worry about anything as she took care of everything. She is proactive and always got back to me regarding statistics so I did not have to wonder what was happening to my property. Unlike some agents that I have worked with where I have had to continue to ask for the status, I did not have this problem with Maria. I am very comfortable with her professionalism and would really recommend her for all property work.”

Ross

“Thank you Maria for your passion and determination with selling our property. You exceeded our expectations with getting it advertised and on the radar of the other hoamz agents. As well as that, you are very personable and great at communicating what's happening at the various stages of the sales process. We have no hesitation in recommending you to others. “

Dan & Lana

“Maria well where do I start :) Thank you so much for all your help on the sale of both of my apartments. I found you always to be a delight to work with keeping me in the loop with everything going on. Any time day or night I could ask you a question and you would always reply with a professional answer. When there were issues with my sale Maria worked through them in a professional manner and with a great deal of patience.  It's a stressful time selling a house but with Maria's great sense of humor and enthusiasm made it a breeze!!! Again Many Thanks for your help and I would not hesitate recommending Maria to all who wanting to sell a house.”

Gordon Ross 

“A big thank you very much to hoamz for selling our house at 232 Peninsula Road, Kelvin Heights but an even bigger thank you to Maria who is an amazing real estate agent.   Maria handled every aspect of selling our house in a professional manner with very little disturbance to our normal lives. This was commendable by itself. However, what is even more impressive is Maria's suggestion for us to look at 1B Peregrine Place, a smaller property but Maria's insistence was directed from her astute memory of what we came to look for in Queenstown almost 9 years ago (when we first came into contact with Maria). Maria was right - this is the property we had looked for - and despite some considerable difficulties that Maria overcame with her dogged perseverance we bought it. We so appreciate Maria and highly recommend her skills in real estate. PS she is a lovely lady too.”

Peter & Elaine

“I have had the pleasure of buying 3 properties from Maria Wyndham in the past 3 years (2 of them in the past 8 months). Two of these properties were personal family homes and the 3rd is an investment property. Maria is an excellent real estate agent who listened to my needs and came up with variety of property solutions. Maria found each property and we completed the contract within 7-14 days of my initiating the property search process. Maria is very quick to respond to any questions and was happy to assist in matters outside of her responsibility as a real estate agent. She is always willing to go beyond her call of duty. Maria has a very upbeat positive attitude. She is passionate about her job and wants to get the best result for her client (a rarity amongst property agents). Maria is a great asset to have on your team when seeking to buy a property here in the Wakitipu area.”

Corey

“We can't thank you enough for everything you have done. You have been a wonderful person to work with. Being the other side of the world you really have to trust who is selling your home and we did from the very start. We can now move on and that is thanks to your hard work.”

Vanessa

“Well I’ve been settled here at the Beacon for a few months now and am enjoying it more every day. I just want to thank you for the effort you put into helping find a suitable property here in Queenstown. It was a long haul and you stuck it out through thick and thin for nearly five years of my searching! I appreciated your professionalism and found you always to be positive and supportive even when I must have seemed impossible to satisfy!”

Rob

“Maria and the hoamz team were given the task of selling our home in a short timeframe, and we’re delighted with the result! Three great offers within three weeks of listing. We couldn’t ask for more. Thanks Maria.”

Gada

“Maria has handled a number of transactions for us. She's reliable, responsive, knows the market and understands exactly what we are looking for in a property. We'd recommend her to anyone.”

Ashley

“Thank you Maria for the most fantastic job you have done selling our house. Your communication was so very clear at all times meaning that the process was a breeze for us. You were amazing!”

Ann

“We found Maira Wyndham to be extremely hardworking and professional - her upbeat, positive 'can-do' manner making her a pleasure to work with. More importantly, she also got us that Sale and within just days of our signing with hoamz.”

Richard & Karon

“Maria Wyndham was able to give us local insight when we were selling our Queenstown section. She confidently advised us at all stages of the process and we found her regular updates on point and helpful.”

Jo

“Maria you are a star! In just a few short weeks you sold our section at Jack’s Point. For us as overseas vendors your good guidance, no fuss attitude and 24/7 communication availability was unbelievable. Well done! When we are ready to purchase another property we will definitely contact you.”

Ian & Pauline

“The team have a slogan “Integrity with results”. As a local family we have bought and sold three properties over five years with the team. Integrity speaks for itself, you either have it or you don’t; they do. Honesty, even harder in Real Estate, but I have to say they WILL be honest with you regarding property values, even if it isn’t what you want to hear and you the Vendor choose to ignore them, in the long run they will be right. Results, well I am a believer, two of our sales weren’t exactly straightforward and both times they achieved results within half their self imposed time lines.  I am also a believer in “together everyone achieves more” TEAM, and even though as a Vendor you deal predominately with one special agent, the whole team works with you at given times. Even more importantly with a young family they respect your space, daily lives and work around baby toys. By this I mean they give you ample time to clean and present your property before a viewing they ensure to call you after so you know it’s safe to go home again and they respect your stuff.  I know this all might sound like a marketing pitch, but honestly, I have chosen to write this recommendation in my own words and mean every word. Ring me direct if you don’t believe me.”

“I built an architecturally designed, rural property, sitting on 1 ½ sun drenched acres within the Wakatipu Basin. I considered the design and location to be very desirable and a sale commanding a good price should not be too difficult. I was wrong! My property sat on the market for two and a half years and was listed with a number of local Real Estate companies. None of them had been able to sell my property and the market was now in decline. I met Brendan Quill earlier this year and listed my property with him. He seemed to possess that special quality I had been looking for – he understands and has a passion for selling Real Estate and has a positive, confident air about him – he is a salesman!! On inspecting the property he very quickly saw the positive aspects of my home and the reason behind certain design features. It would not be an easy home to sell as it would not appeal to everyone. Before too long he had an interested party and a contract was written up. As often happens a situation developed which potentially was a deal breaker. Brendan’s quick appraisal of the situation and ability to provide a solution meant the deal proceeded to a successful conclusion for all parties. I cannot recommend his sales abilities highly enough. You will not be disappointed with his and his team’s service and commitment to the sale of your property. Many had the opportunity but only one succeeded!”

Steve

“Thank you for the hassle-free and completely painless experience you gave us in selling our home. You brought a big smile to our faces. Great humour, passion for the job and extreme professionalism exudes from every one of the team. You surely are the Number 1 agents (having now dealt with others confirms this) and it is with great pleasure that we sing your praises to all and sundry.”

Catriona & Aaron

“Stephen, Graeme, Maria and all the folks who helped with our open homes and guys who delivered beers and wine, THANK YOU....I really did not think we would sell on the day and Ed and I are both delighted with the out come, Brendan if it had not been for you it would never have happened!...you just did not give up! We are so pleased we chose your firm and of the positive out come for us in what I still believe is a weird old market! It was a pleasure to work with everyone of your staff.”

Gillian, Ed & Hamish

“On behalf of the crew and committee of the Riverton Coastguard Inc. we wish to extend our grateful thanks for your time and effort that you gave at our recent 50th Jubilee. It was a great night and everyone that attended enjoyed the evening. You did an excellent job and we appreciated the way you kept the evening flowing. Please feel free to call to inspect our Coastguard Headquarters. The building is usually open on Monday evening for training.”

“Thank you for last night at the StepUp Charity Auction. You were the BEST!! With your help and skill (and of course witty charm and humour) we raised over 300K for teens in NZ and Oz to be able to create a better future for themselves. You’re a legend – Thank You”

Yvonne - StepUp

“Thanks Quilly for the great auction result and the entertainment you brought for Orphans Aid on behalf of Ivan Clarke and the Lonely Dog team.”

“On behalf of the Queenstown Ice Hockey Club I would like to thank you most sincerely for everything you did to ensure the smooth running of our recent fundraiser, Prenzel in the Alps. We were delighted with the success of the event and thrilled that it ran so smoothly and professionally. Thanks to your auctioneer skills we obtained some very good prices for our prizes that had been donated. We really appreciate your support, enthusiasm, professionalism and your generous spirit.”

Teri

“On behalf of the Bruce Brant Youth Trust we wish to thank you for your involvement in the charity auction at the recent Thriller in the Chiller. You worked the large crowd superbly with humour and skill that enabled the night to be a large fundraiser for the trust. In excess of $40,000 was raised on the night. This money will be turned back to the youth of the Wakatipu who are chasing dreams in the sports, arts and cultural fields. The trust note your enthusiasm and community spirit and appreciate the time you gave up to assist the trust and the youth of the Wakatipu basin. You are the champion of the community!”

The Bruce Brant Youth Trust

“On behalf of the American Express Queenstown Winter Festival, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Brendan Quill and the entire hoamz team for their contribution to the charity auction held as part of this year’s Thriller in the Chiller. Brendan’s performance on the night, along with the able support of his team was nothing short of spectacular. With over 1300 people in the auditorium and the ring in the centre, this was a very testing environment in which to hold an auction and I believe that there is no individual or real estate company in Queenstown that could have delivered a better result. It was obvious from the outset that the entire team was onboard 100%. Everyone knew their job, everyone worked together and everyone contributed to the end result. Not only did we raise in excess of $40,000 in a little over 20 minutes, but the manner in which the auction was conducted was slick, professional and entertaining – three vital ingredients to the success of any auction in my opinion. Having seen the team in action I would not hesitate in recommending hoamz for any auction be it a charity event, real estate or otherwise. And having Brendan at the helm means your auction will be in the safest possible hands.”

Simon - Festival Director

“We would like to say a big thank you for coming along to our Battle of the Basin fundraiser and entertaining everyone as MC at the after function. We raised an amazing $9000 and everyone had lots of fun.”

Arrowtown Preschool & the Battle of the Basin Committee

“Throughout the six week marketing campaign and subsequent auction of our house Brendan Quill and the team at hoamz were fantastic to deal with.  They worked hard to get an impressive number of people through all the scheduled open homes and their vendor reporting each week was very thorough.  Quilly’s experience as an auctioneer was obvious.  The auction was slick and conducted with his usual flair.  I would absolutely recommend Quilly, and the team at hoamz, to anyone looking to sell property in the Southern Lakes.”

Katrina

“Thanks so much for being our auctioneer on Saturday night. You were an absolute legend and thanks to you we raised around $23000 from the auction alone! Seriously you were awesome!”

Lake Hayes Ladies Organising Committee

“We would like to thank you for your generous support towards the Christchurch Earthquake Fundraiser Black Tie Charity Ball that was held at Skyline on the 28th May 2011. The night was a great success with over 200 guests in attendance.  We raised almost $40,000 for the victims of the Canterbury earthquake which has been donated to the 2011 Red Cross Earthquake Appeal. Thank you again for your assistance in making this event so successful.”

Christchurch Earthquake Fundraiser Organising Committee

“This letter is to say a big thank you for being the auctioneer and at our fundraiser on Saturday night. Without Ferg and yourself we know we would not have reached the amount of $11,000. This now brings our total to nearly $13,000 and we haven’t finished yet. There has been a lot of amazing feedback this week from the community and everyone thoroughly enjoyed your “double act”. Thank you again for your support and making the Charity Fashion Show a huge success.”

You were so efficient and at the same time full of wonderful humour and you so skilfully extracted the cash out of those handbags!! On behalf of the Queenstown Inner Wheel Club, I wish to sincerely thank you. It was a day full of fellowship, humour and immense generosity and proudly our club will be able to present a cheque to Happiness House for $5445.00.

This builds on last year’s funds raised to a total of $33,500.00 over the past two years. We absolutely could not have achieved this without you and we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Your personal contribution and commitment to this cause is outstanding and we feel privileged to be associated with a person of your character.We would be honoured to continue the work that we’ve achieved in the past towards even greater fundraising efforts.”

“On behalf of The Branches Trust and those attending the Wakatipu High School, we would like to extend our sincere gratitude for the assistance and support you gave in the lead up to and during our recent Art and Hors d’oeuvres evening. The support we received from the community and people such as yourself contributed greatly to the success of the evening. We were delighted with the end result, raising $17,000, which will directly assist in the continuation of the iconic ‘Wakatipu High School Branches Camp'.”

Vinny & Alison - The Branches Trust

“In the last 6 months we have sold our home and bought a section, co-incidentally both of these transactions were through Rowan McDonald. Rowan was always a pleasure to deal with and we felt that he was really on our side throughout the whole process. He achieved the ideal balance between keeping us informed as the situation required, whilst never being too "in your face" as many Real Estate agents are, making what could have been a stressful and overwhelming process as hassle-free as it ever could be. Something else that set Rowan's service apart was his ability to really listen to our needs and not try to sell us property that we were not interested in. Once everything was signed and sealed, Rowan thoughtfully called in with a little thank you, which was as appreciated as it was unexpected. We didn't have a mansion to sell, nor were we buying at Queenstown's high-end, but we were made to feel like valued and preferred customers. We will definitely look to Rowan when we make our next move.”

“Veronica and I would like to thank you for your dedication and professional yet pleasant assistance in helping us purchase our rental property last week. It was a true pleasure working with you and we'll certainly come back to you and homaz for any additional purchases in future.”

Henk Hocken

“hoamz” – Sold! Sold! “Yes! Rowan McDonald and his support team sold my property in two and a half months. They are a friendly, positive bunch at hoamz, and Rowan, my agent, excellent -extremely nice to deal with. On my first appointment with Rowan I had my property data to hand over, but he had already obtained the information required from the correct sources. A step ahead all the way, working diligently and keeping me updated on the events. We had a time of reassessing, and slightly changed the approach to draw the right market. Even in a time of recession, I was very confident it would be sold with Rowan in charge. I can highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling property.”

Lyn

“Our dealings with Rowan McDonald we found to be nothing short of excellent. His personal manner, professionalism, punctuality and reliability made him an absolute pleasure to deal with, and we have only praise for his work ethic in every respect. We would also personally like to thank all of the staff at hoamz Queenstown for their hard work and commitment toward achieving our desired outcome, and for making our buying experience easy and enjoyable. Thanks Rowan and the team at hoamz. You made our dream come true.”

Andrew & Janelle

“We had our house on the market for over four years with not much interest. We switched to hoamz and immediately found Rowan to be really professional. I was totally surprised and impressed that a professional photographer had been booked in. Rowan barely had the for-sale sign in the lawn before a couple came to view. They bought the house shortly after. I believe this is due to the fact that Rowan knows how to negotiate between two parties. He lets you know where the limits are and there's no excessive to-ing and fro-ing. I think he has a good head for the type of people most suited for viewing your house.  Communication via email text and phone was always on time, to the point, and exactly at arranged times. I'd definitely call him for the next property transaction.”

Debbie & Greg

“Rowan achieved price results for my sections that I am rapt with. I know he had my best interests at heart throughout and I know he worked hard to make this happen for me. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone thinking of selling.”

Ivan

“In November 2010 I had the pleasure of meeting Fiona McDonald.  Having read through the list of agent profiles I chose Fiona to be my Real Estate Agent to ensure that we secured a home that we would be happy with.  Never for one moment did I regret that decision.  Fiona was exceptional in her attention to detail.  She was an excellent listener and went over and above to ensure that the service that I received was at all times first class.  During the experience Fiona also showed some amazing  personal qualities with her understanding and sympathetic ear during a family crisis. Her presentation, cheerful nature, positivity and willingness to ensure satisfaction indeed set her apart.  I wish her well and every success for the future.  I am happy to provide further information if required and may be contacted on 03 4422792.”

Anne

“Just wanted to extend my thanks to you and your team, especially Fiona and Jacko for your assistance with the sale of my apartment on Ballarat street, it has taken a while but I appreciate your perseverance as I know it hasn’t been the easiest place to sell!”

Katherine

“Well done to you - we certainly couldn't have done this crazy transaction without your persistence and wonderfulness. You've certainly earned your commission! Just sorry it isn't a $3 million house. Thank you so much!” 

Meg

“Thanks so much for sorting out the sale of our house, you have been fantastic to work with.  It is great dealing with an agent who communicates so well during the sale process, so we really appreciate it, and to get such a quick result was an added bonus!”

Mel & Chris

“Fiona McDonald was able to secure us a sale for our home after trying many other agents. She worked with us continually on both the styling of the property and the marketing campaign to appeal to as many buyers as possible.  Fiona also stuck with us ensuring we got a fair price for our property. She was both patient and approachable,listening to our needs as a family trying to sell a family home. I feel confident recommending her as a real estate agent who will work for you to achieve the desired outcome.”

Meadow

“We first chose to list our property with Fiona as she came across as a bit of a 'go getter'! Not to mention we like the team, the service and the image that hoamz as a company offers its' clients. Our decision to list with Fiona proved to be the right one as our house sold within just a few weeks due to their team work. We are delighted with how Fiona operated from start to finish and the fact that she kept on going afterwards with her determination to find us a new home! She listened and understood our needs, has been great with communication and was active in exploring all possibilities. We wish her all the best and would highly recommend her to any future vendor or prospective purchaser.”

Mark & Andrae

“Thank you so much for the brilliant support you gave us with our house move.  Not only did you immediately know the right property for us to move in to, you also got the best price possible, and were hugely helpful in explaining all the details.  It's a complex process and we have both felt that we understood what was happening at every step of the way, thanks to your unlimited time and patience.”

Emma & Mark

“I think this is a good time to thank you! You have been so very patient, understanding and coached us through all of the things we did not understand. This was a big decision for us, and coming to a decision around the pricing, the type of sale and ultimately accepting the market took us a long time! Thank you for everything you've done - it did make such a difference that we felt you were always working with our best interests in mind.”

Rebecca

“Fiona was highly recommended to me and as a property investor I have been thrilled with her service, knowledge and considered manner. Fiona has shared her market insights and provided sound statistical information. Working with my desire to build a property portfolio she has presented many viable opportunities for me to consider. Fiona is very personable, approachable and will problem solve when required.  Her years in hospitality and as a long-time resident of Queenstown means she has a local edge and has historical and local information you just can’t buy.  Fiona is able to balance the needs of both the vendor and buyer and achieve a sale that both parties are happy with, simply put- she's my go to girl for real estate in Queenstown.”

Michelle

“Jo and I wish to extend our sincere gratitude to you, over the way in which you have dealt with us during viewing a property you had listed and then the follow up was above average, we were kept fully informed all the way. Even though we did not make the purchase, we wish to highlight the professionalism, honesty and integrity that you demonstrated and above all your 'non-pushy' approach and empathy was clearly noted. Fiona Do Not Change your ways; it's a pleasure to write this as it is well deserved. Thank you once again for your efforts”

Quentin & Jo

“Fiona approached me when I had listed my property privately (the only agent I might add). I said this is my bottom line, mindful that she now needed to realise a sale price that would be plus her commission. She said I was underselling my property and I was sceptical she could make a sale at the reviewed price. Not only did she make the sale but she did so within the short listing period of three weeks that I had allowed her. At all times I felt she had 'my' best interest at heart and even during sale negotiations she was less willing to move on the price than I was. My association with hoamz and Fiona was an altogether satisfying and successful experience and I would unreservedly recommend Fiona to anyone selling their home or property.”

Ian

“It is without hesitation we recommend Fiona to those needing a genuine salesperson to both market and sell their house. As out of town owners of a property in Frankton, we were lucky enough to choose Fiona without knowing much about her work ethics or history in sales. She went straight to work for us, no messing around!! We were able to trust her to  arrange a meeting with our tenants, organise open homes and be there to show the home at any time a buyer requested this. Fiona steadily and persistently worked with any interested buyers until she achieved a successful written contract and ultimate sale. And got the price we wanted too. Fiona worked hard, communicated well and was consistently motivated to sell for us. We recommend her to all prospective sellers, most particularly if you live out of Queenstown and need to trust and rely on your agent to do the job.”

Steve & Elizabeth

“We love this place! Thank you, thank you, thank you. Hayden and I would like to thank you for all your hard work to help us settle in this apartment. Now looking back to where we started, I could never imagine that we would have done this without you and the team behind the whole process. You have always been there whenever we had questions or were puzzled. We enjoyed the time looking around different houses and listening to your advice and ideas. It has been truly a great time to have you as our agent and to guide us through some difficult times.”

Echo & Hayden

“I recently instructed Steve Lindsay to list for sale a property owned by a Trust of which I am a trustee. I was extremely impressed with the manner in which Steve dealt with my instructions, his professionalism in the advice that he conveyed to me, his reporting to me as to progress with the listing and levels of interest and the fact that he managed to effect a sale at a price acceptable to the trustees within the tight time period we allowed for the marketing of the property. Between the time of sale and the settlement Steve kept an active interest in the process to ensure that both vendor and purchaser were happy. I would have no hesitation in recommending Steve to clients and friends as an agent for future property transactions.”

Kat

“Ian and I wish to thank you for the wonderful service you have provided for us in selling our home and the purchase of our new townhouse. We found the whole process was dealt with in a professional, friendly manner and nothing was too much trouble. Our questions were always answered in a prompt manner and staff were always a pleasure to deal with. Already I have referred your services to people that have come through the Job Agency. When the time comes to go through the process all again (hopefully not for a year or so!!!) you will definitely be the first ones we contact. Many thanks again and please enjoy my homemade carrot cake for your morning tea.”

Vicki & Ian

“Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for your help in selling 4 O'Leary's. We're sad to be out of the Queenstown market but it made no sense to have a home on the other side of the world. Hopefully we'll be back in the market down there one day.”

Mark & Louise

“I just wanted to thank you personally for all your work on my new property. I'm stoked that the deal came together so neatly and that it's exactly what I had been looking for. It sure wasn't easy but I'm rapped it worked out.  Thanks once again Graeme.”

Guy

“Thank you for the information sent any owner would be very lucky to have you as his agent.”

Guo

“Graeme, even though we didn't inspect the property ourselves before purchasing it we are more than delighted with everything! Felt at home immediately we walked in the door 2 weeks ago. Hugh was a pleasure to deal with and kept us very well informed the whole time. Thank you all once again for your excellent service and remembering that we were very keen to purchase in the Double Cone complex.”

Christine & Peter

“I just wanted to say what a pleasure it’s been to deal with Graeme and hoamz. He showed me several apartments and gave me invaluable information about those and quite a few others, which helped me to make a decision. I really appreciate the amount of work you did because I did not visit Queenstown to look at any of the properties, but relied on your knowledge of the properties and the area. Your advice and input have been very much appreciated. In fact, the whole process has been very easy, thanks to all your hard work.”

Suzanne

“I am relieved that the trauma of selling our house is now over, after only two months in your hands. We have admired your expertise and energy in progressing matters which were necessary for an “out of season” sale; the Listing Contract was clearly and rapidly produced, and the photographic presentation was excellent. Clearly you have produced a quality web site that can be expected to produce results. We wish you well in your future property sales.”

Pat & Peter

“Having had our house on the market for approximately six months with a sole agent with little success, Jannette Highsted approached us to see if she could have a go. We found her enthusiastic, honest and prepared to work for us the Vendor, not just for the commission. After dealing with other agents we found Jannette prepared to do the job we expected and the house was successfully sold. We have no hesitation in recommending Jannette to any other Vendors.”

Lorraine

“I would like to thank you very much for all the effort you put into selling my property. I was very impressed with your friendly, professional service and the regular feedback you gave after prospective buyers viewed it. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to prospective buyers and vendors. It was a pleasure working with you.”

A Smith

“Sometimes we have to make a decision that is difficult to make when we sell a property. Often made because of financial gain or physical limitations, in my case the latter was the driving force. To sell my Kiwi Cottage and associated land was a decision that I agonized over for many weeks. Would I sell and how would I organize the procedure. Who could I ask for assistance?  By chance I visited an Open Home as the design of the dwelling interested me for I had spent all my life associated with the building trade and spoke to the real estate agent. I invited the Lady to assess my property, my introduction to Jannette Highsted.  We came to an agreement and it was all on. My theory was that, the sale notice would not cost me a cent sitting out in front of my property no matter how long it rested there. I underestimated Jannette who worked very efficiently and as time progressed suggested some plan changes in our approach to our sale plans. I was in a position to be flexible as the new approach that was agreed on was different to the original plan of sale. I was impressed with the communication, hearing from Jannette once a week to keep me informed. Any question I asked the answer came back the same day, refreshingly different from some people one deals with.  I had to be patient over one part of the transaction as there were two properties involved but as I was in a position to do so, the end result was satisfactory to me. My dealings with Jannette were very satisfactory and I thank her for making what I thought would be a difficult time, trouble free.”

A McDonald

“We worked with Jannette Highsted who we found to be very hard working and efficient. I am sure that Jannette will be able to assist your friend. Please ask him to tell Jannette that I recommended her.”

R Brabazon

“We were very happy with your performance regards the sale of our house. Your attitude, energy, professionalism and commitment to the sale did not go unnoticed. You have some very good systems in place eg. phone and email and marketing. We would have no hesitation in passing your name to others. We wish to thank you sincerely and wish you all the best for the future.”

Shirley & Nev

“Jannette has just sold our property for us, and we found her to be very professional, always friendly, keeping in touch with us throughout the selling period and suggesting different ways of marketing the property. I would recommend Jannette as an agent and would certainly enlist her services in the future.”

Faye, Ross & Shane

“We had been trying to buy an apartment in Queenstown for about 7 months when Jannette Highsted came to our rescue. We found Jannette to be ever cheerful and patient answering our many detailed queries. She was not only very prompt but also very professional. We changed our mind quite suddenly at one point and followed an option that we were initially disinterested in, and Jannette more than happily continued to supply us with her good service and humour – this is a stage where previously many other agents had turned sour and given up on us.In short we are now the happy owners of Queenstown real estate and Jannette not only made that possible but she was our one point of contact in the process who was ever reliable helping us solve issues where ever they arose.”

Vicki & Graham

“Set for a new life in another town it was difficult to choose who I should list my house with. The first agency I chose totally overpriced my apartment and most of the contact I had with them was purely with me instigating it first -  seems like they had lost interest and placed the listing in the too hard basket. After 5 months enough was enough. I had taken a brochure with me that was the result of a letter box drop from a proactive agent working for hoamz - Jannette Highsted. I firstly spoke with Jannette about how hoamz operated in comparison to most other agencies. The part I liked most of all was the fact that the company she worked for operated on the philosophy that all the agents working for hoamz would try and sell your home, not just the one that listed it. Jannette was not the only one to do Open Homes at your house, they all got to do them so they all had a good understanding of your property and who would be attracted to it. She also promised weekly activity reports showing internet activity/number of hits on the advertised sites, who they had showed through your property that week and what comments those people had made - both negative and positive. Mmmmm sounds good but was it just words. I can honestly say I have not been disappointed. Jannette delivered on every promise she made. Jannette devised excellent advertising and worked alongside her other colleagues to finally get the result I not only wanted but needed. Not once did she lose interest always staying very positive and optomistic, even though it had been listed with them for 7 months before my property sold. I only have good words and admiration for both Jannette and hoamz. Thank you so much”

Jan

“I had contacted Jannette from hoamz for an appraisal of my property, after she had left a calendar in my mailbox. Even though she did not agree with the price I was wanting for the property she went ahead and advertised it without a price. 10 out of 10 to her for not pressurising me to drop my price at that early stage. The marketing was excellent, her market knowledge outstanding and I was very satisfied with the feedback from buyers and communication during the brief process. And she achieved the price I wanted within 2 weeks!  I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling.”

Kay

“Jannette is a human dynamo, my property signed up for sale within 8 days!! I appreciated her friendly efficiency and excellent communications with me and her team. I wish her continued success.”

Jenny

“I asked Jannette for an appraisal of my property. She came back to me with this quickly, efficiently and thoroughly, which I appreciated.  While the appraised price was slightly less than I wanted at the time, I was still considering proceeding as I was aware of the current state of the market and had enjoyed Jannette’s honesty and fresh approach to the sales process. In the meantime she approached me saying they had a buyer that they thought would be the perfect match for my property and so I naturally invited them to view it, and asked them to quote slightly higher than the appraised price. The outcome was that the buyers bought it at that price and I was delighted with the result. I would highly recommend Jannette to anyone considering selling their property – she is an absolute professional, very thorough, communicative and committed to her vendors and I was very surprised to find the process so simple. Thanks Jannette, I’ll certainly be using your services again for buying and selling property.”

Bevan

“I would like to than you Jannette for doing a great job in selling my Queenstown property. Your attention to detail, clear info, great marketing campaign was what sold the property. Would recommend you to all looking to sell a property in Queenstown.”

Chris

“Thank you for your professionalism and securing a quick sale for us. I was impressed by all the phone calls and emails to both Alan and myself to update us. I liked the “Southern warmth and friendliness” of your approach especially when you called to say we actually knew the buyers!! I would not hesitate to recommend you as a hard working friendly agent who gets the job done in a very timely manner.”

Dinah

“Just wanted to say thank you for all your help and thanks so much for the hamper that was waiting for us, so lovely and welcoming! Appreciate all your help and sure we will see you around town.”

Kylie & Justin

“Just a quick note to thank you Jannette for all the great work you did on the sale of our property, after having little success with other real estate agents you got the job done with both parties more than happy with the outcome. Thanks once again.”

Alan & Debbie

“Just wanted to say a big thank you for handling the sale of our new home.  Also thanks for the lovely surprise basket we discovered on our doorstep.  It was a pleasure to deal with you, and your friendliness and cheerful manner really made the purchase far less stressful.”

Shawn

“Thanks for all your help and guidance with the purchase of our apartment. The people you put me in touch with have been wonderful to deal with, and very helpful. A bit of old fashioned service goes a long way, and I really appreciate yours and their help. We won’t be over for a few months now but I will let you know in advance so we can catch up.  Many thanks once again.”

Tim

“I would like to thank you for your amazing effort selling my wonderful home in Queenstown while I had to be out of the country. Your professionalism and innovation in the sale of my home at one of the most stressful times of my life was sensitive and appreciated. You went beyond in your sales approach and agreeing to try the tender process. I was always kept in the loop and reported to in a timely and honest manner. I will recommend you and use you in the purchase of my next home when I return. You rock!”

Pam

“Thanks for the quick sale of our Queenstown property and making the process as painless as possible and we would recomend Jannette for any one wanting to sell their property.”

Neven & Alice

“Having recently sold my property in Queenstown, I highly recommend Jannette Highsted based on her expert advice and her intimate knowledge of the market. Jannette picked up on an unforseen problem to do with the title to my property and provided great support and guidance in helping to successfully resolve the issue which I regard as going beyond "the call of duty". I also found her level of reporting to be excellent and I felt fully informed throughout the whole process which I found to be in keeping with her open and friendly manner.  Many thanks Jannette!”

Pete

“We chose Jannette Highsted to market our properties in Queenstown. Jannette came highly recommended to us and we can certainly see why. Right from our first meeting until a successful sale outcome Jannette at all times kept us informed of how her sales strategy  was progressing. We had constant contact throughout the sales process which made what could have been a test of endurance a relatively easy journey. For anyone contemplating buying or selling realestate in the Wakatipu / Queenstown lakes District you will do well to engage Jannette Highsted whom we know to be perfection personified in her chosen field of real estate.”

Graeme & Yvonne

“Very happy!  Thank you very much for working with us... and finally getting a sale!”

Dianna & Simon

“We have had the pleasure of dealing with Jannette Highsted as our Real Estate Agent when selling our property. We have found her great to deal with, always keeping us in touch with the real estate market, sending us regular information on how our property had been going, and options on how to advertise our property. We would definitely recommend Jannette to sell any property, and wish her well for the future.”

Sue & Grey Russell

“I found Jannette’s market knowledge, communication and negotiation skills to be excellent. Jannette was always available and always returned missed calls. I was mostly ringing from Australia and even when I called or text outside normal working hours, I always got a reply. I will use you again in the future if buying or selling. Thanks Jannette.”

Ian

“We have been delighted with the service you have given us, everything was dealt with immediately. All the stress was taken out of selling our house and we would recommend you unreservedly to anyone. Thank you for all you have done.”

Muriel & John

“Thank you Jannette, your quality and professionalism has indeed been excellent. You were proactive in turning the initial interest from the purchaser into a firm offer and then managed a rather involved situation regarding the condition of the unit with the body corporate with great diligence within a tight timeframe.”

James

“Jannette is an extremely good agent. Very positive and proactive and communicates well.”

Brook

“Our house was on the market from January 2014 until it sold this month, December 2014. During that time Jannette never wavered or lost the enthusiasm or drive to persevere, and we never lost faith in her capabilities. She has a very good understanding of the market, and market values, and gave us sound advice about both along the way, always keeping us up to date with all developments and answering our questions and emails promptly. In the end her tenacity paid off and we are very pleased with the resulting sale of our property and purchase of another nearby also managed by Jannette. Thanks :-)”

Alan & Vicki

“My reason to provide exclusivity to hoamz and in particular Jannette, for the sale of our Queenstown property, was due the professional and prompt communication to any and all queries I had when first buying the property 5 years ago, as well as the casual but informative communication of what was happening in the Queenstown property market whilst we owned the property. When it came time to sell, Jannette was on the case and in fact had the three offers on the table within the first few days of having it listed with hoamz. Following this Jannette went over and above what I would say is typical for a sales agent, to ensure both the seller and the purchaser were able to execute at the agreed value and without stress, so for this I am thankful. I would certainly recommend Jannette and the team at hoamz Queenstown to any prospective buyer or seller of a property.”

Dan

“Jannette from hoamz has done an amazing job of selling our property. She is very professional and realistic with excellent communication. She had two offers for us within a week of listing our property. I would highly recommend her to prospective vendors.”

Annemaree 

“A short note to let you know how pleased we are with all the work you put in to sell our property and bring it to a satisfactory conclusion. It was a rather long and arduous journey but your perseverance brought success.”

Ron & Marion

“I’m based in the UK so it was important for me to work with an agent that I knew and trusted, and so it made sense to work with Jannette who I had bought the house through a few years ago.  Jannette helped me not just in selling the property but in the processes around the sale, often taking calls or emails late in the evening to tally up time-zone differences!  The weekly progress updates from the team kept me informed and with the work that was put in, my property was sold well within my required my timeframe.  Thanks Jannette!”

Susie

“Thank you so much for all the effort and hard work you have put into the sale of the Alpine Village property for Jenny and I. We certainly appreciate your professionalism and the service you have afforded us during the entire process. The experience we have in the purchase and sale of properties throughout both Australia and New Zealand has seen us interacting with many real estate sales agencies and we can honestly say it has been an absolute pleasure to have you working for us on this sale. Our thanks to both yourself and your back of house team for all your efforts for us.”

Craig & Jenny

“We have just sold our Jacks Point home through the efforts of Jannette at Hoamz.The process is always stressful but Jannette smoothed the way and everything fell into place. She knows this particular market well and achieved results through this knowledge and her professionalism. It was a pleasure working with her.”

Rob

“Why did not I ask Jannette to sell my property from the beginning? That was the first question which came to my mind after Jannette took over the very disappointing and unsuccessful sales campaign and auction result by the other agent. She was efficient and effective, and is clearly a high achiever. This was apparent from the beginning to after the sale. The other agent could only obtain an offer to buy below my bottom reserve price after so many weeks of campaign. On the other hand, Jannette was successful in obtaining a much higher offer, followed by two back up offers within a matter of a few weeks! I personally like checking my work or private emails very often, and I like to work with people who respond to me very quickly. Jannette was one of those people who I did not have to call at all from overseas. She gave me very detailed marketing report on a regular basis. She was always ahead of me!I invest in properties in four countries and I wish I had many more Jannettes in each market to make my life easier! She will definitely be the first person to call in Queenstown if I have any real estate investment or sales needs again in the future.”

Tak

“Jannette’s customer service and after sales is second to none. She has gone out of her way to follow up on a number of issues that arose after the Settlement was complete. Issues she really had no obligation to help with. For that we are very grateful and applaud her work.”

Richard & Lauren

“We were first time buyers and knew very little about the process of buying a property. Richie went through everything with us and explained thoroughly the complete process. Any questions we had he would answer quickly and precisely. He was always in contact with us about any changes and developments and made the relatively stressful and nervous situation for us, smooth and easy. We would highly recommend Richie to anyone wanting to buy a property, and would definitely use him again.“

Rob & Jacqui

“Working with Richie made the process of buying our first home more than stress free, it was fun! He looked after us every step of the way and really made us feel like we were his top priority. He listened to what we wanted and ultimately found us our perfect first home. Next time round we will definitely be calling Richie, we trust him to see us right.”

Alice & Seamus

“We really appreciated all your help in the negotiations to purchase our new house as we were living in Auckland at the time. You kept us up to date with every part of the sales process and made this a very easy transition into our lovely new home. We loved working with an agent that provides a total service and especially your fun enthusiastic personality which was very refreshing.”

Tony & Sally

“We approached a few real estate agents in Queenstown from our home town of Perth, Western Australia - in the view of doing research for a possible investment property. Of all the communications made - by far and away Richie Heap from hoamz was the most informative and prompt with replies. This spoke volumes for us being overseas investors as we were a little nervous being so far from the location and needing a 'man on the ground' so to speak to be our eyes and ears. Richie took our requests and list of requirements into account and rather than just respond with current listings, he did the groundwork and presented us with a shortlist which allowed us to use our time efficiently once we arrived. We also met with other agents but it was Richie's attention to detail which meant he came up with the two top properties of all that we saw. He was always available, no matter how small the request - and on our return to take ownership he was very helpful and provided a lot of area guidance, which made the transition a very positive experience. We would go to Richie at hoamz first with future property interests and will also recommend him to others, particularly first time overseas investors - his friendship, professionalism and sense of humour go a long way to make the business end of things a positive experience overall.”

Vicki & Tod

“We purchased land in Gibbston Valley through your agent Ritchie. I just wanted to pass on to you the good experience we had with Ritchie throughout the process. We met him outside your office on Shotover St when we were looking at realty photos in the window. He came out and introduced himself. We mainly used him and another agent whilst looking for property in the area. We were in North Canterbury for much of the time, selling our own home before our move down here. We were uncertain for a long time about what we would end up doing. Ritchie was patient and not pushy as a sales person. He communicated very well at all times even when he was heading off to Sydney recently and we were in the middle of negotiations.  We would recommend him to others.”

Fiona & Peter Bersani

“Thank you Richie for helping us through what can be very stressful situation. We weren’t the easiest clients, changing our brief several times to say the least. In the end we purchased something we were not expecting and are very happy for Richie keeping all options open to us. Richie was always willing to help and answer our questions and contact was kept throughout the whole settlement process, nothing was ever a problem. Thank you for your help and patience.”

Louise & Ian

“Richie did a great job with great results selling our investment property in Queenstown. We resided in North Island and needed to sell our tenanted unit - a tricky situation for any landlord. We needed someone with good communication all round and a friendly approachable personality - to be able to work with the Property Manager, the Tenant and the remote Owners. Richie fit the bill. He worked alongside the Property Manager and took time out to talk to the Tenant to get their cooperation with viewing times. Richie took the stress out for us and handled everything delicately to achieve win-win results for all those involved. Highly recommended. Thank you.”

Duane & Praksha

“We recently sold our home with Richie and his professionalism, friendliness & helpfulness made our whole experience completely stress free. Richie was excellent in communicating feedback to us and we were always kept well informed and he reassured us every step of the way. This made it an easy decision to purchase our next home with Richie. This was also a pleasure as he listened to what we wanted and found us our perfect match. We would not hesitate in recommending Richie to anyone when selling or purchasing a home.”

Grant & Jo

“We highly recommend Ged as your agent whether you are purchasing or selling. We found him to be most helpful and professional in a process that could have been fraught with issues. The property that we purchased was not currently on the market at the time and the owners were residing on the other side of the planet and very difficult to make contact with. Ged managed to put the deal together to the delight of all involved.”

Mick & Genny

“I would like to thank you for your efforts towards the successful sale of my house last year. It was a pleasure to have such a professional agent alongside doing everything well. Communication with me, with my tenant, all handled very well and efficiently. To work with an agent who does what he says he is going to do and who tells me the hard things as well was great.”

Sue

“I thank Ged and hoamz for my purchase of this lovely house.I have found my castle and sweet home which is just perfect for me. When I visited the office of hoamz was just closing time. However, Ged helped for my enquiry kindly. He was very supportive and understanding my feeling without pushing me. With his advice, my purchase went on very smoothly and happily. Also, on my settlement day, he brought a beautiful gift basket with a house key to my work which was a big nice surprised for me!  If my friend or colleague was looking for a property, I would recommend Ged and hoamz.Thanks again and I am very happy living in this lovely new home!!”

Satomi 

“We listed our holiday home with Ged at hoamz after achieving poor results with another major local agent. From our very first dealings with Ged I could tell we now had an agent with a lot of passion, tons of energy and a real drive to achieve the results we wanted. A marked contrast! The level of communication, honest advice and help sorting out associated details with the house was most appreciated, especially as we were based in London. The final result of all Ged's work meant we received a fantastic unconditional offer on our property, well exceeding our expectations. I would highly recommend Ged and his team to anyone looking to sell their property. He was a pleasure to deal with, highly professional and extremely effective. Many thanks Ged.”

Emma

“Thank you for your help and patience with the purchase of my first property. There was no pressure to purchase at any stage which meant that I have now got something I'm happy with.   Look forward to hopefully dealing with you in the future.”

Gabbie

“We were very appreciative of your unflagging assistance, advice and encouragement during the selling process. I must admit the whole process went much smoother and faster (!) than we imagined it would. The icing on the cake was the great price you managed to wring out of the bidders during the pre-auction text auction! Well done indeed! Overall we have been impressed and appreciative regarding how well the process went. Thanks for all your help in making it happen so well.”

Ann & Peter

“Ged - You have been a pleasure to deal with and we would be happy to recommend you to anyone we may know who is considering buying or selling :)”

Helen & Gary

“You helped us with the sale of our Bob's Cove property and did such a good job we looked you up when it was time to sell another property - this one in Frankton. Your advice was spot on and just shows that local knowledge is really valuable in any market. You helped us get above our asking price and had 2 unconditional buyers within 5 days and that was way beyond expectations. I knew you are and have been the local expert on Frankton real estate and have your finger firmly on the pulse of all of the Wakitipu but especially in Frankton. You also assisted us in the purchase of another property near Remarkable's Park and once again you put together a sale that both the vendor and ourselves were very happy with. As usual you worked hard for both parties to make sure everyone was pleased. What else can I say? Only that if we ever want to buy or sell again in Frankton you will be the agent we would use. We also consider you a dear friend now as well.”

Jim & Ros

“Kath I just wanted to thank you for selling my property in Frankton a couple of weeks ago and for helping me buy a new property just blocks away from my old house. I was told that you were the local real estate guru for the Frankton area and now I know it's true. I guess having been a local for so many years has given you the true knowledge of the area and the trends of the market and prices. Anyway thanks so much for making everything so easy and for all your extra work in getting 2 deals put together in such a short time, a sale and a purchase in 3 weeks!”

Michael

“Kath Cruickshank has recently sold our property for us, of which we were very pleased. We found Kath honest, up front and responded to any of our requests in a very timely manner. The service we found to be well above what was required, and would certainly not hesitate to use her again or recommend her to anyone else.” 

Scott & Gabrielle

“We have known Kath Cruickshank since 2006 when we purchased a property in Frankton. When we decided to sell it was done in a friendly professional manner and sold very quickly. Kath is a kind friendly person who is very honest, therefore we would have no hesitation in recommending her in any real estate matters in the Queenstown and Lake District.”

Paul & Wendy

“I used Kath Cruickshank to sell my rental property in Frankton. I could have used any agent in Queenstown, but I knew Kath would be the right person to go to. I am living in Melebourne now, and Kath made it so stress free for me. My property sold within ten days. Kath is very professional, experienced, honest, and reliable.”

Murray

“Even though we didn't inspect the property ourselves before purchasing it we are more than delighted with everything!  Felt at home immediately we walked in the door 2 weeks ago. Hugh was a pleasure to deal with and kept us very well informed the whole time. Thank you all once again for your excellent service and remembering that we were very keen to purchase in the Double Cone complex. (abridged) “

Christine & Peter – Holiday home buyers from Australia

“My partner and I have purchased our first home through Hugh Clark at hoamz. Hugh has been great to the both us, even right from the start when we first walked into the hoamz branch in Queenstown. He really listened to what we were looking for in a home and took us around several properties until we found the one. He advised us every step of the way and developed a good relationship with us. After we completed contracted, Hugh even offered to help us move furniture and has kept in touch with us even after the whole process. We have no hesitation in recommending Hugh Clark and hoamz. We will definitely seek his assistance in future. Thank you again Hugh.”

Tom & Frances - First home buyers from Queenstown

“I’d like to pass my compliments to the wonderful Agent I dealt with – Hugh Clark. Hugh assisted me with the purchase of my first house – He is friendly, professional, trustworthy and customer focused. It was a stressful journey to make the first step and Hugh provided me with the wonderful service and support at every step, he was available for calls at any time and always kept me updated on the progress. I wish more people like him were in the work force! I definitely will advise Hugh's service to everyone as a best person to deal with in Real Estate.”

Alicia - First home buyer from Queenstown

“Hugh Clark was our agent and from the beginning he was informative, helpful, considerate and very easy to deal with. He always returned our calls, emails or texts and did not hesitate in keeping us both up to date. His communication skills are excellent. He was friendly and open to discussions and ideas. I would not hesitate in recommending him to any prospective buyers or sellers as he would provide them with an excellent service.”

Julie & Mark - Investment buyers from Auckland

“My partner and I bought our first property in Queenstown through Hugh Clark, we had an interesting purchase as we used the funds from my Kiwisaver which is a bit of a process to go through, the property was also rented at the time of the purchase and the Title was yet to be issued - complicated. Hugh was very patient and understanding of the situation, he kept us well updated on issuing of the Title and the movements of the current tenants and we had the best outcome possible resulting in us taking over the tenancy until the Title was issued and everyone was happy. I would highly recommend Hugh if you are looking for help or advise in the Real Estate market.”

Lisa – First home buyer from Queenstown

“Hugh would, without a doubt, be one of the best real estate agents we have ever dealt with. Being from out of town we were new to the area and really had no idea what we were looking for. In fact the property we first enquired about through Hugh and our initial brief of what we thought we were looking for and what we eventually bought could not have been more different!! At all times Hugh, the thorough professional, persevered with us and came back with answers and information to every question we asked. And we did ask a lot and often!! From searching council records, plaster systems, gas bottle suppliers, arranging for contracts to be delivered and picked up from various locations – even driving out to get a contract signed in the middle of our bike ride - nothing was a problem. If he couldn’t find an answer to something he would put us on to someone who could. We are thrilled with the house we finally settled on and right up until settlement and beyond we were still demanding answers to questions and requiring information on various aspects of Queenstown services and where to go to for all sorts of things – right down to where to get our daughter’s car serviced. We could not have had a better agent than Hugh and will keep in contact – mainly because we still need to pick his brains.... Hugh, we look forward to dealing with you again, maybe sometime in the not too distant future, but will definitely catch up for another beer soon. “

Dave & Sandie – Investment buyers from Wellington

“Thanks very much for your assistance with our recent apartment purchase. You’ve been most helpful at answering our questions promptly and providing as much information as you can source. Being our first apartment purchase it was appreciated that you and the HOAMZ team knew the apartment market well so we felt well informed and confident in our purchase. We are also pleased you prompted us to make a backup offer as we would have been unlikely to pursue this apartment further and may have missed out on the opportunity.”

Andrew & Nadia – Investment buyers from Queenstown

“I dealt with a few companies and yours stood out head and shoulders above the rest! Fred and Simon were great to deal with – no rubbish and no fancy talk – can’t be bothered with that. Good down to earth, professional service.”

M Wikstrom

“I have known Nicole before she became a Real Estate agent so I already knew her to be a very honest and caring person. When it came to buying a house there was no choice about who I was going to work with. I could trust her to tell me what I wanted to know, the truth, plus she went the extra mile on so many aspects of our house purchase. I would highly recommend Nicole if you want honesty, integrity and making things happen - and some fun along the way.”

Tracey

“Thanks for doing a great job Mel. While we are at the other end of the country, you made the entire process extremely easy by taking control, working hard and keeping us well informed along the way. Friendly, professional and efficient comes to mind and I’ll happily use your services again.”

Adam

“We recently engaged Melanie’s services to buy and sell. From the first time we met Melanie, we found her to be friendly and down-to-earth. During both transactions she always kept us well informed. Even when we were starting to lose faith, she was always positive and kept us the same way. Her commitment to us was 110%. Melanie is very approachable and it has been a pleasure dealing with her. We would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone buying or selling.”

Jill & Dave

“Once the decision was made to buy a house, we began to look on the market through most estate agencies. Once introduced to Melanie, she listened to what we wanted and initiated from knowledge of our wants/needs gained and pursued such with vigour, enthusiasm and dedication was empathetic. We felt supported and comfortable to be guided by Melanie’s expertise that we received from no other opposing agent. Melanie immediately stood out as the person for the job.”

Joan

“You were the first agent that seemed to take a genuine interest in us that day. After viewing 6 open homes, yours being the last, we were impressed by your approachable and friendly manner.”

Mr A Christianson & Mrs LM Pearson-Christianson

“A non stress process which we appreciated. Honest and constructive feedback.”

Mr & Mrs Cole

 “Carl, you are the same person you have always been. Making us feel comfortable. Your honesty and professionalism.”

Mr Brough & Mrs Daly

“I found Carl Wilson extremely professional and very helpful with good communication skills. I went with Carl on the advice of friends and was most impressed by his professional standards and level of advertising.”

T Vassie

“Your reputation preceded you. Your absolute professionalism.”

W Bytenhoorn

“Friendliness and Good Communication re Open Homes. Phoning before bringing people through.”

R & C Harland

“Friendliness, helpfulness and your down to earth straight forward attitude.”

M Barrie

 “Pricing, ability to get the job done. Above all was the integrity you showed.”

M Blair

“Carl was very helpful and answered all our questions.  He made the auction process smooth and stress-free by helping us understand how it worked.”

L & D Bartlett 

“Knew the Agent – straight talker and very trustworthy.  Have dealt with him before.”

T Fosbender

“Always a pleasure Carl.”

J Naylor & J Milne

“I appreciated it was difficult at times as I am a shift worker – it was good being texted information. I also appreciated getting sufficient warning for open homes and viewings. Thank you for all your hard work.”

S Bas & S Jamieson-Bas

“Great service. Delighted that you do rental property management as well.”

W Bytenhorrn & R Pafalani

“You are the best in town…without a doubt. No way could you have done any more. Many thanks.”

P Dawson

“Carl and Dana worked really hard to get a great result, very professional and honest.”

K & S Middleton

“I would even go to Carl if the house that I wanted to purchase wasn’t listed with hoamz.”

M Dawson

 “Carl was totally professional throughout and had had more than a few laughs as well which kept the whole process real and a pleasure.”

G Hyde

“Carl is a very patient and positive person to deal with. I was very grateful to both he and Sue for the friendly manner in which they undertook the sale of my home.”

H Carver

“We will be in touch in the New Year Carl. Merry Christmas and a huge thank you!”

K & Q Thompson

“Everyone always says that buying & selling a home is one of the most stressful things you can do. We can honestly say that thanks to Anne this wasn't the case at all, she was so friendly, organised & professional. She sold our house quickly and also found us our lovely new home. We have always told our friends how wonderful she is to deal with, and would say to anyone looking at selling or buying to give Anne a call.”

Brent, Pauline & Caitlin

I've always been a big believer in giving credit where it is due hence this email.Anne, I can’t thank you enough for the way you dealt with me when purchasing my new home. Your professional caring approach was both refreshing and reassuring. You allowed me to go at my own pace; didn't put any pressure on me and genuinely wanted the best for me as well as your Vendor. That in itself gave me the upmost faith and confidence in you as you didn't try and sell the Vendor out in an effort just to get the sale like I have experienced so many times before. So often you hear people saying "I would never buy a house off him/her but I'd get them to sell mine!" Anne, I'd have you doing both. Your integrity, honesty and genuinely friendly disposition make you the obvious and perfect choice. Finally I would like to thank you for the follow up and ownership towards your after sales care. You don't just "Talk the Talk" Anne, you "Walk the Walk". If you ever need any references or recommendations please feel free to mention my name.”

Dean

“My partner and I have recently purchased our first home.  During the time we spent looking for our home, Anne Thomas stood out above all of the other real estate agents we dealt with. Anne is a sincere person who always acted professionally, was fantastic at communicating with us, listened to us and valued our opinions.  She regularly kept us updated about houses that her company had listed.  She was very obliging and more than willing to show us through homes at times that best suited us.  If Anne said she would do something, she always followed through with it. I would recommend Anne Thomas to anyone wanting to buy or sell a house, as I believe she would represent both parties honestly and fairly.”

Carla

“Your professional time and care re the sale of our home will never be forgotten by both of us. Thanks Anne.”

Maree & Daral

“Anne Thomas has been a real pleasure to deal with when recently purchasing a property for my daughter. She was professional and considerate throughout the process, fully appreciating my “wish list” and offering guidance on important factors to take account of. She was happy to show me a number of properties and discussed frankly with me the advantages and disadvantages of each according to what I was looking for. I always felt comfortable that she was looking for the best solution for me and not just another sale. I have utilised several agents for purchasing properties over a number of years and can without hesitation say Anne has been the best to work with of all these.”

Penny

“Just a note to express our thanks to Anne Thomas. We first met Anne whilst visiting an open home at least 2 years ago and over the ensuing years Anne stayed in contact and remembered what our dreams and wishes were. It is thanks to Anne that we are happily settled into our new home.We cannot commend Anne highly enough and you can be assured that Anne will be recommended to everyone we come into contact with.”

Adrian & Mary

“I first met Anne Thomas just over 12 months ago when attending one of her open homes. I was looking for a property for my brother to purchase, who was moving to NZ from overseas. I was immediately impressed with how Anne interacted with people and was taken by her friendly and welcoming manner. I purchased this property on behalf of my brother and Anne made everything just happen so easily. I realised then I had found a true professional who would sell my own home when the time come. Late last year my partner and I listed our home with Anne and she exceeded all my expectations.  Anne listened to what we wanted and valued our opinions. Anne offered her opinions and advice to us but always allowed any decisions to be made together. Anne's attention to detail was faultless and I had complete trust in knowing that what Anne said she was going to do, would be done. Anne has outstanding communication skills and kept in regular contact, keeping us up to date with what was happening throughout our time on the market. Whether you are buying or selling I would highly recommend Anne. Anne works equally for the vendor as she does the buyer. Anne is a confidential, sincere, caring and committed agent who often does extra things for her clients, well beyond what would be required from an agent. Anne, we thank you for all you have done. We truly appreciate the hard work you put into selling our home and for putting up with (one) very demanding vendor! From both of us we wish you every success in your life and career. You are no longer thought of as just an agent to us - we think of you and regard you as a friend.”

Michael & Jason

 “My wife and I chose to go with a real estate professional, Anne Thomas  due to a referral and an above and beyond experience with her at an open home. Anne has that WOW factor and is with you all the way, in every way and we found her excellent in the following areas: Honest. Professional. Appearance. Approachable. Polite and very respectful. Listens to what your requirements are. Full Commitment. Marketing excellence. Full explanations of the sale process and contract to sell. Constant advice and updates on where the market  is at and how this may effect the sale. Having a bold and bright sign well positioned at home for sale. Contact between the purchaser and the seller was extremely professional at all times. At all times the seller/vendor came first. Advice on any outcome from the team meetings where applicable.”

Allan & Denise

“I have no hesitation in recommending Anne to anyone contemplating buying or selling property. Anne stands out from the rest with her genuine kindness, caring nature, keeping in touch and attention to detail. Anne is most certainly a pleasure to deal with.”

Alison

“100% happy and completely satisfied. Anne was exceptional. She is a wonderful friendly agent.”

Valerie & Maurice

“I have known Anne for many years having dealt with her at Air NZ. As with my dealings with Anne at Air NZ it was a joy to be involved with her again in the difficult task I had been given to sell a friend’s house. It was literally days and the house was sold. Many thanks Anne, you took a lot of pressure off the situation I had found myself in and I have no hesitation in recommending to anyone that they choose you to market their house.”

Joan

“Anne was very professional and very helpful throughout the whole buying and selling process. She was very patient and understanding of what we wanted, which made the whole process very easy and enjoyable. We have and will continue to recommend Anne to everyone who is looking to buy and/or sell. Thanks Anne for everything.”

Jeremy & Di

“We are writing to express our complete satisfaction with Anne Thomas as our real estate agent. Throughout the entire sale process, Anne was professional, conscientious, and motivated. We were very happy to have Anne work with us to sell our home. Anne provided us with outstanding advice about how to prepare our home for sale, and an honest and up-front appraisal on our home.  She promptly returned all phone calls and had advertising in place as soon as possible. We lived outside of Invercargill, but this was not a problem, we were kept up to date by her team at all times, the communication was outstanding. We felt well looked after. Thanks to Anne, we were able to sell our home in a very short space of time. We really appreciated Anne’s calm reassurance and expert advice throughout the entire process. Anne was the outstanding professional we were looking for, and we would therefore highly recommend Anne to anyone looking at buying or selling, you honestly wouldn’t want anyone else!!  Thanks Anne!!”

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the hard work and effort you put into selling our house. When we first met you we were immediately struck by your professionalism and this is why we decided to go with you over many other agents. You have been patient, reliable and accessible the whole way through. Your work ethic and communication skills are impeccable along with your thoughtfulness, good humour and friendly smile. Because of our buyers, the process was not straight-forward but your commitment made our sale possible (we would have taken the house off the market if it wasn’t for your perseverance on our behalf). We are extremely grateful for all you have done and we have already started recommending you to all our friends and family.”

“I have trust in hoamz that they do a honest job and represent their customer to the best of their ability. I would strongly recommend them. They did their very best and I don't think they could have done any better. The real estate agent (Don Sutherland) was very helpful and patient. hoamz agents are very friendly and professional. I would like to work again with them in the future.”

K McGowan

“Chris was by far the best I have dealt with and I have bought a lot of properties over the years. He is very confident but very astute to what I was looking for in property.”

B Health

“Awesome service will be definitely recommending Chris for anyone selling a home. He goes beyond the call of duty to make it happen. He doesn’t push you into a decisions, he gives you options and lets you decide. He keeps you informed of everything that is going on and makes it work for you.

“We were completely happy with the advice and service provided by Dana. She was upfront and honest with us throughout the whole process and kept us up-to-date at every stage. She was always respectful and gave us plenty of notice if a viewing was required. She built up a great rapport with our daughter and nothing seemed to be a problem. Hoamz was the total package, particularly our bright and bubbly agent!”

Alan and Valda

“Carl and Dana worked really hard to get a great result, very professional and honest.”

Kieran and Sarah

“We were introduced to this property by an agent doing an open home on another property that was not suitable. When we stated our requirements, she suggested this property, which we have since bought.”

Craig and Cecilia

“My situation was not as easy as some, as an absentee owner and the property tenanted, problems often arose. I felt my agent Dana Hunter was prepared to go ‘beyond the call of duty’ to deal with problems that arose during the course of the sale. Her positive, professional manner was invaluable.”

Julie

“Just wanting to say to Andrew, Dave and Sue that we appreciate the wonderful and professional job they did when selling our house on Skye Street. We will absolutely be recommending your service to others. Again, thanks.”

Cathy

“We would not consider any other company now. Both Andrew and Sue were down to earth and not pushy from the outset. This was very reassuring. I think hoamz should be proud to have genuine agents such as Andrew McHugh and Sue Henderson representing their company. They readily put us at ease and gained rapport. At all times we felt they were on 'our team' and striving towards our goals of what we wanted to achieve.”

Paula & Stefan

“I am happy to write this personal letter of recommendation for Sue Henderson. Early this year my son and I were privileged to have Sue Henderson as our Real Estate agent. Cody is a 24 year old who wished to purchase his first house and was very impressed with Sue's honest, reliable and efficient manner in which she endeavoured to find him a house. Both Cody and I found Sue listened to his needs and was extremely organised in providing us with a number of houses to look at. From the time we sat in the car with her we were both very much at ease and found the while experience to be stress free and painless. Sue provided us with all the relevant information required and went the extra mile to source any information we required before signing the dotted line. I have no hesitation in recommending Sue Henderson as a Realtor and we both found her communication skills and rapport with people to be of a very high standard. Sue's dedication and communication (both written and verbal) to us as clients was very prompt and professional at all times. We found her to be very conscientious, friendly, informative and approachable. I have no hesitation in strongly recommending Sue Henderson as a realtor.”

J Scott

“After spending over 10 years in our family home and bringing up 3 children, my wife and I decided after much deliberation and debate to sell our home. We have bought and sold with various agents and real estate firms over the years but this time we decided to contact Sue Henderson. Knowing how difficult home sales can be for various reasons I must say how pleased we were with Sue, the upfront manner and honest market appraisal was outstanding. We were finally treated as people not just another sale and the house was sold quickly. I would absolutely have no hesitation in recommending Sue.”

B & N Murrell

Steven & Kirstin

“I had the most caring, helpful and fabulous agents anyone could ask for they have been truly wonderful. I could not fault them; all 3 agents were exceptional and made the transition so much easier.”

Natalie

“I couldn’t imagine how they could be better than they were. We would definitely recommend any one of the three of them to others. Selling one’s home is a stressful process, these guys made it a lot easier for us including minding our pets.”

Neil & Margaret

“We have had a real positive experience with hoamz. It’s a bit sad when you realise that you are actually going to miss your real estate team. The team is wonderful to deal with, always obliging and went the extra mile and very very supportive.”

“The service I received from Margot and hoamz was excellent and I will certainly recommend them to my friends and family. As a vendor, I had the desire to be kept informed and Margot and hoamz certainly lived up to my expectations in this regard.”

Bronwyn

“We met Margot Berney when we became interested in viewing and subsequently purchasing a property that she was selling at hoamz Real Estate. Margot was very efficient, thorough and professional in all our dealings with her. She went out of her way to ensure that we and our professionals had all the relevant information and necessary contacts during the purchase process. Her pleasant, down to earth manner meant we would not hesitate to recommend her to any prospective clients in the future.”

Christine

“As a first home buyer I was pretty daunted by the whole process.  My main priority for my new home was good fencing and enough room for all my pets; so I emailed Margot to see if she had anything suitable – she told me about a house she had just listed in an area I love, and it was just across the road from where I used to flat.  It was a tidy wee house that I’d always admired. We arranged a viewing and I took one look at my new home and brought it on the spot.  Margot made the entire process smooth and although there were a couple of minor hiccups she dealt with it professionally and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone buying a home.  If and when I buy another, I will be ringing Margot first.”

Jane

“We would like to thank you for the excellent professional service we received from you. You had a great deal of energy and your lovely welcoming greeting was what made us put our house in your hands to sell for us. You explained everything thoroughly and told us the price that the market value for our house if we were serious about selling, and warm you were right on the button, 3 weeks later we had an offer. Your bubbly personality and passion was what we loved and we have told many people to go to you to sell their house. So once again a BIG Thank you for your hard work it was much appreciated.”

Glenys & Ivan

“We entrusted the sale of our property at 379 Peninsula Road, Queenstown, to Garry Pankhurst. After discussing the various methods of sale we decided, with Garry’s advice, to take the property to auction. Through their excellent marketing campaign, Garry and his fellow salespersons managed to show over 40 lots of people through the property in the four weeks leading up to the auction and created the necessary interest which we believed helped us attain the best price the market would pay. Thanks also go to Brendan Quill who was a master auctioneer on the day of the sale. We have no hesitation in recommending Garry Pankhurst to do an excellent full service program for the sale of a property.”

B & J

“I am writing to thank you for the totally professional service you provided to us recently with the purchase of our property in Frankton. Both Julie and I felt at all times that you were working on our behalf with absolute integrity and honesty. Furthermore we appreciated your frankness and attentiveness whereby we genuinely felt that our business was of the utmost importance to you. This does not seem to be commonly found in the real estate industry these days. We also valued the efforts of the rest of the team it certainly made this process much more straight forward than it might have been. I would appreciate it if you could pass on our thanks to them. Please feel free to pass on our comments to any prospective client if you wish.”

Tim

“Thank you Maria for working so well for us. You were friendly, adaptable and more than ready to go the extra mile. We truly appreciated everything you did for us to ensure we got the property we wanted. We will be recommending you to anyone we wanting a property in Queenstown.”

Ann & Neil

“We decided to put our house on the market and thought this would be an easy thing to do. As it turned out two local real estate agents didn’t want our listing as they had no one on their databases to sell it to. The third wanted to sell it at a price well below the two month old current valuation. This left us totally disillusioned. After meeting with Brendan Quill we were immediately struck by his positivity and enthusiasm. Quilly noticed all the little things about our property that we were so proud of. Our house was listed at a price we were happy with. It sold in six weeks with three offers on the table. Buying or selling in Queenstown we would recommend Brendan Quill and the team.”

Mark & Dana

“My husband and I recently had the pleasure of meeting Rowan McDonald at an Open Home he was holding in Lake Hayes Estate. At our initial meeting we found Rowan to be extremely helpful and knowledgeable about residences for sale in and around Queenstown.  Over the following few weeks, we very much appreciated that Rowan had listened to our requirements, taken our budget into account, and arranged to show us a variety of suitable homes. We did not visit any homes which were unsuitable or out of our specified price range, and we did not feel pressured by any sort of 'sales tactic'. We found Rowan to be patient, friendly and helpful at all times.  During the purchase of our current property, Rowan was extremely conscientious in all aspects of the purchase. Rowan responded promptly to any enquiries we had, and was at all times approachable and efficient.  We have lived in the Queenstown area for fourteen years. During that time we have purchased several houses, and have encountered a number of real estate agents. This was by far the smoothest and easiest house purchase we have made, and we attribute this to Rowan's high standards and professionalism.  We have found the service provided by Rowan to be exceptional. We would not hesitate to contact Rowan regarding the sale or purchase of a property in the future, and we highly recommend Rowan to all prospective buyers and sellers.”

Anna & Mark

“Thank you for assisting in purchasing a home for me and my family. It was our first home and we needed help to understand the various complexities of a property purchase and the wisdom of someone with a good knowledge of the process. You answered our need. You were very kind with your time and patience. I found that your services were performed well and that you assisted me in the various aspects, exceeding that which is expected of an agent. The extra time and effort that you put in helping me achieve tasks that were outside of an agents job description, reduced the load and worry for my family and I would like to convey my appreciation. All in all, we were a customer buying only a cheap first home with a modest commission for you. The complexity of the purchase was increased by our application to use the government home deposit subsidy and also the government sanctioned use of my kiwisaver funds to be used towards the purchase our home. Given the high effort and low return, you never gave us the feeling that we were too much trouble. I could sense the joy you felt when we had finally achieved our dream of owning our own home and knew that you really have pride and purpose in your profession. Would I recommend your services to a prospective client? Clearly, Yes! From struggle street to living the dream, we couldn’t have done it without your help Fiona, Thank you!”

Peter, wife Lily & little wee Sam 

“I just want to say you have been absolutely awesome and worth your weight in gold!! You have made what I thought would be a majorly daunting process simple. I’ve barely had to do a thing except sign some papers. I have really appreciated your guidance and honesty and all the way through this process I have felt fully informed.”

Gaylene

“Very recently a team from your office, were successful in listing and selling our home at 39 Elm Street Ave, Frankton, Queenstown. My husband and myself have previously experienced selling our homes, together and separately.  You are to be congratulated on employing people of such high skills and class. We would also like to highlight a couple of agents we saw a fair amount and strongly recommend – Fiona McDonald and Graeme Jackson, however it was “the team job”, done by all that we thank you for, and strongly recommend any and all from your firm to future clients.” 

Lex & Hazel

“I just wanted to say how god damn pleased I was to have you on the job selling our property earlier this year. Without your focus I’m not sure we would have had a sale in this testing economic climate. Sure, we did get seriously real on the price and our expectations. I’m also reassured in hindsight that you got the best deal you could and you stuck with the potential buyers and followed through. Thank you for your professional commitment to selling our property and all the best for the future.” 

Sal

“Richie at Hoamz helped us to purchase a property in Queenstown which required a reasonable amount of negotiation. His energy and enthusiasm was a real asset in completing the deal and no issue was a problem for him. Even after settlement he is still keeping in touch and providing any help required. It is so nice to deal with someone who is always smiling and motivated. Thanks Richie.”

Hayley 

 “I have sold several houses, and would say that you are the best consultant I have worked with. You are very responsive, prompt and professional on the one hand, but also a very good listener, avoid any of the tricks of pressuring which are so common to the industry, and go out of your way to help people out – which is the heart of the service required. Thanks for your help.”

Darren

“Having just had my home in Lake Hayes Estate sold by hoamz I would like to say that I found all the agents I dealt with very accommodating and helpful. Nick was very good at keeping me up to date with what was happening and I would not hesitate to recommend the company to others.”

Paula

 “Kath was an absolute pleasure to deal with and professional in how she managed our house sales. Once we made the decision to sell Kath took care of everything. With her friendly, kind and helpful way she was prepared to work very hard for us and we appreciated the support.  Kath made us feel like we were her top priority, always available and kept us informed throughout the sale. That personal touch ensured us we were in good hands throughout the process.”

Annemarie

 “Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for your help in selling 4 O'Leary's. We're sad to be out of the Queenstown market but it made no sense to have a home on the other side of the world.  Hopefully we'll be back in the market down there one day.”

Mark & Louise – Vendors from United Kingdom

“Such a very big heartfelt thank you to you and all the team. As I’ve said before, you are by far, the best property team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. With a strong desire to sell behind us and a massively proactive team such as yours enabling us to realise the financial potential of the Queenstown property we are now in a position where Phil has life options that were previously less available to him. The adventure has just begun......”

J Page

“Nicole is a rock star. Having purchased and sold several houses, Nicole is by far the best agent we have worked with. During our recent relocation from Auckland to Queenstown having no knowledge of the Queenstown market, Nicole guided us through the process 100% with the utmost professionalism and efficiency, meeting all expectations. We couldn’t have asked for a more ‘genuine’ honest and insightful approach providing a high level of comfort as we searched for the right property.  Nicole listened to what our requirements were, and she delivered. Without fail, we will certainly be working together again one day.”

Jonathan

“We hired Melanie because of her excellent professional standards, her determination to succeed, her lovely sense of humour and the ease she showed us in our company.”

“Carl, you are the best. I like the ‘straight up’ attitude and honest approach. You are a shining light in an industry where there is some doubt over the integrity of others.”

D & J Hiroki

“When my wife and I decided to sell our home in 2008 we approached Anne Thomas after meeting her while attending an open home. We were impressed with Anne's manner and warm friendliness and decided to list our home with her. We had our home on the market for approximately six weeks until sold and during this time we were kept in regular communication regarding people’s interest and open home attendances. Although this was a slow time in the market Anne had managed to find the right person with the right offer. The whole process went very well and certainly a many times better than previous experiences we have had when buying or selling homes. I would recommend Anne Thomas to anyone choosing to buy or sell real estate.”

Karl

 “Don was fantastic to deal with and we would be happy to work with him again in the future.“

Satindra & Neeru

“We found Dana to be better than any other Real Estate Agents we have had, we didn’t need to chase after her for feedback. She always kept us informed and had her finger on the pulse. Our house had been on the market for 2 years and Dana was the only one able to sell it. We wanted a female agent and we picked the best.”

Louis and Dorothy

“Sue was very enthusiastic and helpful. She kept us well informed of the process.”

“I would like to say Dave Hegarty has been an awesome agent. He has been kind and caring throughout the process and I have recommended him to others contemplating selling.”

Bernadette

“On the 25 September 2014 you took me to see a couple of properties. The one at Kaka Point was a delight. In 18 days you have helped me achieve my dream home! You advised me regarding a Lim report, builders and electrician report, solicitors etc. and finally I have put a deposit on the property. Communication with the vendors by you, was also carried out to both parties satisfaction.”
