He's a jolly good chap
I liked the fact that Phillip listened to what it was we wanted to achieve and made suggestion to help. It was obvious that he knew his 'stuff' for want of a better description. Also I appreciated the fact that he kept us well informed and was very approachable too. We liked his friendly manner.
They were very professional in all ways

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.

Great local knowledge of lifestyle block market/property values.
Jackie & Doyle
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. We did attempted to fly down and look at it but the weather was not playing ball. He was very supportive throughout the paperwork process and stepped us through it over the phone.

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.
easy to deal with

As it was the holidays the Ray White team actually got Paul Sterk to contact us and he was great he arranged for us to see all the house we had picked and by about the second house knew what we were looking for and knew that house number 4 would be it. Phillip who was the actual agent for the house has been great with communication also regarding any contractual issues/clauses etc.

Philip recently marketed and sold our property. I was very impressed with the whole concept of the marketing strategy he used to make the sale. I found him to be very thorough and professional at all times and had a genuine interest in making the sale.
