Client Testimonials:

We had our home on sole agency with another firm when the sole agency ran out we rang Chris Stevens at Ohope Beach Realty and listed the property with Chris and he sold it within a month. He also put us in touch with another agency in another town where we wanted to buy and bought a home with her. We cannot thank him enough for all his help. We highly recommended Chris as he is very obliging and is prepared to go that extra mile to help people'.

- Colin & Brenda True

'Chris sold my house in Opotiki in March. I listed it with Chris in December and by the end of January he had a firm offer for me. I was very grateful to Chris for handling the property in such a speedy and efficient manner, I never imagined that he would find a buyer that quickly. He kept me informed throughout which I appreciated'.

- Rita Davies

'I worked with Chris on a property purchase recently and found him a first rate Agent to deal with. He listened to what we wanted and didn’t waste time taking us to properties that wouldn’t suit and was always on hand to offer suggestions or ideas. He is totally reliable and trustworthy and kept us updated through the whole process which made it all so straight forward in the end'.

Client Testimonial
June, 2012

Dear Rema,

Just a brief letter to say thank you for the time and effort that you put into the sale of our church building, your work in this regard is much appreciated.

The building had been on the market for over a year with very little interest and activity but when you got involved then things seemed to take off. We saw a number of people coming through to look, your attention to detail in regards to advertising and the sale board out the front of the church was fantastic.

We are looking forward to finalising the sale and putting the proceeds into our new building. We are also grateful for your initiating the lease for us so that we can continue on in the current building. It looks like a 'win-win' for all involved.

Again thank you for your enthusiasm and your involvement.

-Peter Foster
Pastoral Team Leader
Whakatane Baptist Centre

Rema was amazing during the purchase of our home.

The process of buying can be quite scary, especially being first time buyers, but Rema walked us through each step of the process and made sure we were well informed and comfortable with every decision along the way.

Thanks so much.

- The Williams Family

We have always found Rema to be a totally professional, honest lady with a friendly disposition.

She was always willing to go that ‘extra mile’ to find us our dream beach property.

In the end, we not only had a real estate agent help us find our awesome beach property, we now consider Rema a friend.

- Jenny and Mel Christison

It was because of Rema that we got our 'dream home'. Her due diligence and commitment to the task at hand, long after we had lost hope, paid off when she matched everything she had learnt about us, to a home she knew we would love. We absolutely adore our new pad!
