It was a pleasure working with Catherine Rochester in our recent purchase of a Havelock North property. Catherine always greeted us with a smile and nothing we ever asked of her was too much trouble. Her ability to provide accurate and timely information regarding the property made the entire process smooth and easy.
Lisa Arrell and Ken Parsons
Catherine Rochester has assisted me with real estate since returning to New Zealand in 2007. We purchased our first home in Hawkes Bay in 2008, and have recently sold two properties in Hawkes Bay this last month. Catherine is always very pleasant and polite, which makes the process a lot more enjoyable. She has a very professional character, but is similarly kind and thoughtful. It is always a pleasure working with Catherine, and I'm grateful for her service.
Catherine has a solid record for being reliable, honest and very pleasant to deal with. We have recently engaged Catherine and Andrew to both purchase and sell a property for us, in a very tight time frame, which they achieved with great results. Nothing was too much trouble and Catherine kept in touch throughout the entire process. Thanks
Very easy to talk to and relate to. Felt that she was doing all she could to sell the property.
