Because we think Philip works hard to get a positive result. Its more about the person who you deal with then the company as a whole.

We ended up dealing with Philip over the phone. We had my parents view the house, they liked it so we put an offer on it.

Errol & Beverley

Philip was understanding very well that we have two little children and worked with us throughout the whole process. He knows everything about lifestyle properties as well as how to talk to people. He was suggesting to sell our house at an auction which we think was a great way to sell. Hope he buys the new pair of glasses what he was talking about :D

Richard & Judit

Paul was extremely patient and professional nothing was ever a problem, he worked well with Phillip and always seems in control. subsequently his behavior after the purchase was at an incredibly high standard. Not only this but both Phillip and Paul were extremely organic and genuine which is the real X Factor that is missing when dealing with a lot of other real estate professionals, both myself and Rachel, my partner have made comment about this being a rarity when placed in contrast to the rest of our dealings with Real Estate agents in Southland. Simply put when it comes to us selling our home we will only go with Paul or Phillip regardless of who they're employed through.
