Great to deal with, very relaxed friendly and professional. Put me at ease at the very stressful time.
We always appreciated it when written feedback/email was left as to how many groups came through. We spent several hours preparing for an open home or visit and then clearing out for it and to know at least someone saw it made a difference!

Brian and Hermione
Although I have thanked you personally already I would like to commit to paper our thanks for the very professional way you handled the sale of our parent's house. It was a stressful time getting the place ready for sale and this was made heaps easier by your positive attitude, openness and honesty to say "how it is" at all times and your expertise in knowing how to handle everything. Your attention to detail and continual communication of progress prior to sale encouraged and assured me on the day of the sale. It was great to see your team in action and thanks so much for a positive result. Well done. I will definitely recommend your services to anyone I know wishing to sell Real Estate in the future.
Margot - Richmond
It is our pleasure to write this reference for Brent Palmer of Ray White Real Estate. Recently we listed our house with Brent, after having the property on the market for 16 weeks with another agent. From the beginning, Brent was very professional. His marketing procedures, photography and advertising were to an extremely high standard as was his communication with us. Brent kept us informed at every stage of the process and his advice, professional knowledge and expertise along the way ensured that we had sold our property within 3 weeks of listing it. We have no hesitation in recommending Brent to anyone and we would certainly seek to work with him again in the future.
Quentin and Glenda - Richmond
Just a short note of thanks to you and the ever cheerful Kath, for your great service. As someone whose middle name is "stress", you made the whole procedure easier. Your professional but also relaxing, down to earth manner helped with communication and we felt we were well informed along the way. We were also exceptionally delighted when you brought 2 offers to the table. We were in no doubt of your ability to deliver the right result, as it was your previous selling skills that made us decide you were the right man for the job. The continued commitment that you gave us was much appreciated and we have already sung your praises to our friends.
Gina & John - Upper Moutere
We would like to use this opportunity to write a note of thanks to you know that our house is sold and the stress is lifted off us. We really appreciate your service and hard work. Even though some people said it was a mistake to employ an "out of town" agent from Richmond, we always felt confident with our choice. You handled the marketing and selling of our property very professionally; you were always approachable, helpful, straight forward and reliable and we would like to thank you for that. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends and will be in touch when we are in the market again. Thank you again.
Ira & Stefan - Nelson
Many thanks for your personal help, excellence and professionalism while marketing and selling our property. I have never experienced so many open homes ever...what persistence!!!! Your whole approach to the Real Estate business was professional, with prompt, extensive, and well presented feedback. I felt you kept me up to date with all aspects throughout. You were always enthusiastic and positive and this greatly mitigated the stress for me during the selling period. So, full marks for communication, commitment and workable strategies.
Doreen - Hope
Just a note of thanks for all the work you put into helping us sell our Grandfather's house. What we expected was a very stressful experience but thanks to your enthusiasm and professionalism, it was a pleasure instead. Not only did we get a much better price than any of us expected but also what must be one of the quickest sales on record. Thanks so much again and we will definitely recommend you to others.
Nicky & Debbie - Stoke
Recently we had the pleasure of the expertise of Brent Palmer with the sale of our property. It was especially stressful of us as we have lived on our property for nearly thirty years and still love it but realistically are down sizing because of our age. Brent totally put us at ease with his calming personality and expert advice. We decided to sell our property by Tender. Everything ran like clockwork, we had to leave him in charge of our home for three weeks as we had to go South for a family illness. On returning home everything was just as we had left it. Our home sold in under firve weeks with a good price. We would like to thank Brent and highly recommend him to anyone needing Real Estate help and advice.
Brian & Jean - Upper Moutere
We recently sold our 2nd home using Brent Palmer as the agent. Brent was always available and willing to work within our time frame. We appreciate Brent's vast knowledge of the real estate market and his commitment to ensure our home had quality advertising. He always provided us with excellent "straight to the point" feedback after viewings and open homes. We wouldn't hesitate to use Brent's services again if selling or purchasing property in the future.
Tina - Richmond
We recently employed Brent Palmer to sell our house as we were unsuccessful in selling ourselves. We would like to thank Brent for all the good work he put in. He worked hard and kept us informed after every open day which was much appreciated. Brent is excellent at his job and very professional. He also sold us the house we are now in and are very happy.
Bruce & Marion - Richmond
Many thanks for your professional assistance whilst marketing and selling our house; it was a pleasure dealing with you. Your prompt and well-presented feedback made the market clear, keeping us abreast of what was happening at all times. Having had an acquaintance with your family for a couple of years I appreciated your integrity and genuine empathy – traits which appear to be lacking in some of the property agents I have come across. I certainly found your approach to the real estate business very professional, one to which you gave 101%. We came up against a couple of minor stumbling blocks, which were very easily ironed out thanks to your positive attitude. Thanks for taking the stress out of selling our property; it was easy and felt very comfortable doing business with you. I was dreading getting into the property market full of 'shark like agents' – in fact it was quite the opposite. Many thanks again
The McQuillan Family - Hope
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the outstanding service and professional manner you have shown while marketing our property in Richmond. It was a great relief to know that our house is sold so we can move on with our next project. After having our initial meeting with you and outlining what we wanted to do and our time frames it was nice to know you had listened to our needs. Your communication throughout the sale was faultless as was your friendly and approachable manner. It has been a stress free and enjoyable process to sell our home with you and we would not hesitate to have you market our property again, and would highly recommend you to anyone who is thinking of selling their home. Once again, Thank You very much.
Jason, Francine and Harrison - Richmond
Not only did he make the process easier for us, he also took all the stress out of the situation. He kept us informed during the whole process, and was always available when we needed him. His knowledge of the real estate market proved to be very sound, and we followed his advice, with the result that we sold our house very quickly. To summarise, I believe Brent to be a first class Real Estate Professional, and what further recommendation can I make except that we would use him again without a second thought.
Andrew & Lynda - Richmond
Now that I have unearthed my writing gear after our big shift, Ross & I want to offer you and the whole Ray White team, our grateful thanks for the most professional and friendly way you handled the sale of our Churchill Ave property…..but especially to you for all your help and advice beyond the actual sale itself, as we negotiated ourselves around some pretty new and daunting territory in Real Estate! We are well satisfied with our new surroundings due in no small way to that successful sale. Drop by for a coffee and chat sometime when I've had time to fill the cake tins – won't you.
Marg & Ross - Richmond
This is a letter of recognition and thanks for the excellent service that Brent Palmer (Real Estate Professional) gave to us during the sale of our property. Finding this stressful time in our lives in selling our home, his energy and commitment to getting us the best price possible in today's market, enabled us to accept the process more easily and we were able to trust him completely with our investment. His marketing procedures, photography and advertising layouts were of an extremely high standard. The commission and advertising costs were well worth the money. We have made up the cost, and more, with the consequential sale at a good price in a very short time. At all times he kept us informed of what was happening during negotiations, and we felt he was working 100% for us as the vendors. His advice and help far exceeded our expectations and therefore brought a good outcome to all parties involved We would have no hesitation in recommending Brent highly to anyone and would certainly seek to work with him again in the future.
Kerrin & Ron - Stoke
In the space of four weeks Brent intensively marketed my property and had an excellent response to the open homes. Brent provided me with detailed information as to the market response after each open home. At the end of the marketing campaign Brent managed to increase the best offer made by 10%, and this was some 12% above an independent valuation carried out on the property during the marketing period. I have bought and sold several properties prior to this one and Brent has been the most professional I have used. I can definitely recommend Brent to anyone who wishes to get the best results when selling their property.
Peter - Appleby
We thought we would write a quick note to say thanks for all the hard work you put into selling our house. You were always interested in what we wanted and never put pressure on us when we turned down offers that we didn't like. You are very professional in the way you run your business and returned every call that we made to you which is a real bonus. Even now that the house is sold you are still going out of your way to help us with whatever our next adventure might be, and not just forgotten us. We found you very friendly, relaxed and very easy to deal with which took a lot of the stress out of selling. We wouldn't hesitate to deal with you again and have passed this onto people who we know are looking at selling. Once again, thanks for your great work.
Janine & Collin - Richmond
Recently we had the pleasure of employing Brent Palmer to sell our house. After having had a negative experience with another real estate agent from another company we were dubious to employ any one else. Brent made everything so easy; he was relaxed while still being professional and he put us at ease in everything he did. He was very excited to get our listing, which made us feel great, as most other real estate agents we have had dealings with have made us feel like they were doing us a favour. One of the best traits we believe that Brent displayed was his honesty and his ability to tell it like it is. He bent over backwards to ensure we knew what was going on with our house at all times and gave us helpful advise even if he wasn't going to gain anything from it. We would have no hesitation to recommend Brent as their real estate agent to anyone buying or selling a house. Brent will certainly be our first choice for any other real estate matters in the future. Thank you Brent for all your hard work.
Jason & Katrina - Richmond
Just a note to say thank you very much for the professional manner you had when selling my home in Brightwater. I must say it began in a very buoyant way with my house selling within a week of marketing. A few glitchs arose, but you continually worked hard, to maintain the final sell. You always kept me informed in all proceedings which I appreciated, thus lessening my stress levels at times. Thank you for your gift they went down a real treat. Thank you once again and I would recommend your services to anyone. Regards and best wishes Jenny
Jenny - Brightwater
When we were considering selling our house we met with Brent to give us an estimate market value of the house. We felt so comfortable with him that we entrusted the job of selling it with Brent and listed straight away. Brent's communication skills throughout the process were outstanding. We were always kept up to date with each stage of the selling process; from each viewing of the house to the feed back received from the open home. Brent exceeded our expectations of service and he exceeded our expectation of receiving for us what our house would sell for. All of this in 5 days of having our house listed with him for sale! Thanks Brent for making selling our house a stress free and enjoyable process. Kind Regards
Dean & Barb - Richmond
It is a resounding 'Yes' to your question of whether you did a good job or not. Being a first time home buyer I was very nervous about the whole process and from previous dealings with Real Estate Agents have always found them to be very pushy. I did not find you like this at all and actually remember commenting on that fact the first time I came to an open home at Parkers Road. I am not into 'hard selling' and really liked your style of providing the necessary information without going over board with the spiel. I was also very impressed with all of my subsequent dealings with you especially your patience with my frequent requests for information, and further visits to the house. I wish you all the best for the future and thank you again for your assistance (and the great gift by the way - sorry I missed you). Kind regards
Minetta - Tahunanui
You made the process a lot easier for us. Initially we tried to sell the house privately and it was a hassle having to advertise and attend the open homes ourselves. As soon we signed with you the stress was taken away. Your experience and knowledge helped persuade a buyer to purchase our house after already having an offer on another property with a different real estate company. You went above and beyond and made the deal on our property on Saturday which you usually don't work, as it was the only available time the buyer had to view our property. We were kept well informed and were notified straight after an inspection or open home to let us know the positive or negative feedback from viewers, also during the selling process so we knew exactly what was going on. Thanks very much for all your help.
Cheree & Daryl - Richmond
It was most kind of you to welcome us into Cashmere Close with a gift voucher of appreciation. We certainly appreciated the role you had in our purchase, we particularly liked your professionalism. Any other migrating Aucklanders, we'll tell to get in touch with you. Thank you very much.
Fay & Clive - Richmond
This is a letter of thanks to Brent Palmer for selling our home. Buying and selling a home can be a stressful experience, so the choice of a real estate agent is critical. Warren and I had no hesitation in asking Brent to be our real estate agent of choice as we had bought and sold houses with him previously. We had been looking for a specific type of property for a period of time. Brent was always available to organize private viewings after the initial open home (and there were a number). We trusted Brent's honest, professional, realistic and committed marketing skills to sell our home for the best possible price within today's market. The photography advertising layouts were of a high standard. Photos showed our home to its best selling advantage both locally and on Open 2 View. Consequently we had 3 offers on the table within 5 days of putting it on the market, and that was prior to the initial and only open home. We were thrilled with the outcome. Brent always kept us totally informed and up to date with what was occurring during the subsequent negotiations and was still continuing to show people through our home. We felt it showed us that he had commitment to us as vendors. We wish Brent all the best and would not hesitate in offering him the task of buying or selling a house for us or recommending him to other people. Thank you Brent.
Jenny and Warren Rowse - Richmond
Brent was friendly and efficient. He took a lot of people through the property and gave us good feedback.
Jan, Robert, Paula and Cheryll - Richmond
I found Brent to be very polite and easy to get along with.
Cliff and Dot - Brightwater
Brent was able to keep us informed about even the smallest things - ie power information in letterbox, letting him know power was being cut off, which may have made showing the house difficult. Sometimes it is the little things that make a difference.
John and Jan - Nelson
Brent was excellent in every way. He kept all the family in the loop and was always available and helpful with queries. He has huge integrity and is very trustworthy.
Steph - Richmond
We found Brent to be friendly, helpful, efficient and professional.

Kept us well informed and very professional at all times.
Alan and Marjorie - Richmond
Tim & Netta - Stoke
Brent Palmer did what he was supposed to do and sold the house for us. Overall he did a great job and I would recommend him to anyone I know selling their house.
Simon and Wendy - Brightwater
He seemed to be able to match the buyers and sellers, and especially on the buying side pinpoint those who were serious.
Grant and Vanessa - Stoke
Friendly. Has a good reputation and knows what he is doing. Gets results. Treats me well as a woman and doesnt appear to be a hot headed man like some of the real estate agents I have met in nelson city.
Julie - Nelson
Straight up and honest approach, easy to deal with and contact.
Neil Jepson - Richmond
Brent has been helpful and proactive in selling my house. He has made the process very easy.
