‘Life is a gift, don’t short change yourself.’
Aaron was professional at all times and kept us up to date with interested parties. At all times we felt we were well informed to make decisions.
As this was my first solo purchase, I expected to find the process a bit daunting, but Aaron and his team made the experience simple and straightforward. Aaron also went the extra mile and sought a few quotes for repairs to the house, plus gave me information on the neighbourhood, drawing on his "local's knowledge".

We were very impressed with Aaron's professionalism and they way he conducted himself. Aaron was very quick to organise everything required to sell our home and we never had to remind or ask him to do anything. He was always contactable and very pleasant to deal with. A+++

We used Aaron because of his success in the real estate industry including sales of a number of older homes. He is very down to earth and less aggressive than other agents in the market place.
professional dealing; pleasant contact; very good result\ in record time ; kept his promise at all times .
Dear Aaron, This is just to say a huge thank you to you. You have been an excellent agent by putting yourself out and going that extra mile for us. You explained why and how you were using the strategy you did in marketing our property and kept regular contact with us. We were delighted in how quickly our property sold which enabled us to move on in being able to purchase elsewhere. We wish you all the best with your future in real estate and would have no hesitation in recommending you to future clients. Kind Regards, Barry and Nicki (Austin Road, Maunu) May 2012

It gives me great pleasure to be asked to write this testimonial for Aaron Ratcliffe, who, in his work as a real estate agent for Ray White has sold my property at 35 Central Avenue, Whangarei in a remarkably short space of time. While he did all that was required of him to do this, I know that he did a great deal more and I looked on him as a personal friend. As well, he became a source of encouragement to me in the difficult time that I was going through. I know that he will continue to work in this way for many others, such is his giving nature. May God always bless and care for you Aaron. With kindest regards, Iain Wilson. May 2012
We have known Aaron Ratcliffe for the past six months after we approached him when we decided to sell our home and downsize. Aaron has guided us through every step required to sell our home. At times we have been very stressed but Aaron has been there to reassure us that we would sell despite the house market declining in value. We were new to the challenge involved in selling our home but Aaron was always willing to answer our questions and steer us in the right direction. Thank you Aaron. You have been a very cheerful positive salesperson and we have valued your friendly approach. Good luck for your future endeavours.
Ian and Alison Waugh
It is with pleasure that I recommend Aaron Ratcliffe to you. In November 2010 he sold our house, in an amazing three weeks, given the current market, we were surprised to say the least. We found Aaron to be very professional and approachable. We particularly appreciated his honesty and were impressed with his knowledge of the market, including his ability to read the market. Throughout the selling process he taught us some valuable lessons about real estate. Aaron was exceptional at keeping us informed and he worked very diligently to get us the best possible result, so if a result in the shortest possible time is what you are looking for then give Aaron a call, you won't be disappointed.

I am writing to thank you for your splendid effort in heading up the catering team at habitat's Annual Dinner in July. Although the night was cold and the programme ran behind time, the overall function was a great success, and much of the success can be attributed to your skills and leadership of the team.
After many Real Estate transactions in several regions of New Zealand, we decided to sell our house in Whangarei. We had several agents wanting us to list with their companies, most were looking to "feather their own nest" and were not prepared to listen to our requirements. We employed Aaron from Allens Real Estate. His professional approach to our needs and his attitude made our sale go well. He employs manners and courtesy in his dealings without imposing upon our wishes and desires. We have no hesitation in recommending him to anybody who may wish to utilise his skills.

Bret and I just wanted to thank you regarding all your help in selling our home in Glendale Road, you certainly are a man of your word!! You said you would sell our house and you did exactly that, so without a doubt, you are a true professional. You kept Bret and I up-to-date with everything no matter how minor, we really appreciated this. You are passionate about what you do, and it shows. So thank you for looking after us during the sale of our home. We wish you the very best for 2007.
Bret and Kim Sheenan
Iain and I wish to thank you very much for the nice message you sent us on your card. We both want to say thank you so very much for your 100% dedication to selling our home, and for all the hard work and long hours, advertising, open homes, etc. Also all the letters informing us all the time, plus phone calls and house calls. We highly recommend you to all we meet, as the best real estate agent in Whangarei. Thank you again. Best wishes for the future. See you in two years. " God bless and love from J & I Wilson.

I appointed Aaron Ratcliffe to sell my property in 2009. When Aaron took my listing he promised to look after the sale of my property from start to finish. This meant regular contact through the entire process. Aaron kept to his word and his professionalism and expertise was beyond reproach. Aaron was a delight to work with and not only did he sell my property he additionally found a home for me to purchase which was exactly what I required. He listened to me and did not try to push homes on me that he knew I would not be interested in. Due to the service I experienced with Aaron I have not hesitated to recommend him to others that are looking to sell their properties. Aaron is a rare commodity, a man of his word. If I ever consider selling again he will be the first person I would contact. December 2010
He was professional in how he explained everything and he was not pushy.
Aaron's real, good to deal with, prompt to reply, professional. All in all a good operator.

Jeffrey & Jane
Aaron sold the property very quickly,in a very professional manner
Toni & Ron
He did what he stated he would do. He kept in contact with me the whole time. \ At the beginning he did not inflate the property price to get the listing and then talk it down once the listing was his. \ Additionally I felt he worked for me and got the best possible deal he even went beyond what was expected to keep the best tender offer by organising a building inspection within hours of the offer. \ This was a difficult sale for me since I live in Australia and he made this process very easy. \ I cannot speak any more highly of him and he's the best agent I have ever used and I am not stating this simply because I was pleased with the final price outcome of the sale.
Aaron is extremely proactive, follows everything and everyone up, confirms every time he arranges and goes above and beyond (cleaned out my gutters for me!)
