Shona performed brilliantly in her talent of negotiating an excellent outcome in a very timely and short timeframe. We would highly recommend her to anyone, in fact we have recommended her on many occasions previously. This isn’t the first home we’ve bought or sold with Shona’s assistance. We’ve always found her to be very efficient and very professional.
Jason & Debbie
We would like to thank Shona for the professionalism she showed during our house purchase. Nothing was even too much trouble, and it was a pleasure dealing with Shona.
Bev & Peter
Shona was a pleasure to work with while we searched for our first home and never made us feel under pressure to commit to anything that we were unsure about. Nothing was ever a problem for Shona and she was always available at short notice. We felt more comfortable and relaxed about the buying process having Shona by our side, as she was reassuring and provided guidance without being 'pushy'. We highly recommend Shona Keoghan.
Honest reliable hard working 😀

helped us with every step of buying the house

Shona went above and beyond as a real estate agent. She got to know my needs and expectations. She attended to the little things such as ensuring that my outside dog was safe during open homes and used her experience and negotiation skills to get a good deal for my property.
Shona took the time to understand us, to get to know us, and while viewing one property she was able to identify another she thought would fit us. And it was perfect. It meets all of our needs and was something we hadn't considered. By taking the time to get to know us a bit more she was able to identify the perfect property for us.
Darin & Hayley
Shona was helpful without being pushy. She assisted us in a straightforward and pragmatic manner.

Shona did an excellent job of marketing my property at 10 Tuhangi. Shona went the extra mile to get the best possible price. Her personality, her manner made me feel at ease. I felt I had chosen the correct Land Agent. Shona gave it 100% plus for me and I will recommend her to any one I know who is wonting to sell a property.
Just very happy with the service from Shona. Awesome help and guidance. Not too pushy and yet didn't leave alone. was with us 100% and it felt genuine. A real partnership in getting us a shared positive outcome.
Simon & Rangi
The people we worked with throughout the process of finding a property to suit us, were thoroughly professional, friendly, and an absolute pleasure to work with.
Suzanne & Jim
Very prompt action on organising the transaction and on finding a buyer for the property.
Shona was a real professioanal in every way I have delt with many agents over the years Shona takes top marks in every aspect she acessed my needs and followed through
We are very pleased to write this reference for Shona Keoghan. Not only is Shona a very efficient sales person but an absolutely amazing organiser. Shona listed our property at a very slow time in the market, talk about perseverance and faith, and it all shone through with a sale - not only ending here but also helping us find a new property and also somewhere for us, our son and cats to stay in the transit period. What more can we say but one amazing person. Shona guided us through the process of sales and buying with a steady hand and a great eye for detail, nothing was too much trouble. We feel if we hadn't had Shona beside us we would have not succeeded in this venture. If you want one amazing sales person to sell your property then Shona is highly recommended by us.
Arthur & Merle Owens
From the moment of first contact we found Shona Keoghan to be extremely client friendly, helpful, and willing to "go that extra mile" to make the purchase of a new home an easier task for both vendor and purchaser alike. Nothing seemed to be a problem to Shona, silly questions and serious were dealt with efficiently in a cheerful manner. Once our future home had been selected and negotiations settled, Shona still continued to keep us up with the play and made our shift from Hastings to Whangarei that much easier and worry free. We believe Shona is totally dedicated to the Real Estate Industry, she loves her work, and gains immense pleasure from her efforts to satisfy both vendors and purchasers. We wholeheartedly recommend Shona's services to anyone in need of an agent, and believe that Allens must be very pleased to retain her services.
David & Jean Marsden
This letter is to recommend Shona Keoghan as a motivated and knowledgeable realtor. We were interested in buying a house in New Zealand and after several false starts we ran into Shona Keoghan with Allens Real estate. When Shona took on our search, things began to move quickly and efficiently. We viewed multiple properties and soon Shona had narrowed the search considerably. In one month we had a contract on our retirement home. After we closed, Shona continued to be a good friend and resource person for services in and about our area. Buying a house halfway around the world is a daunting and difficult undertaking for a couple still mostly living and working in the USA. Shona had not only made the process easy but enjoyable. We would highly recommend her to prospective buyers.
Mary & Carter Lifshutz
We are very privileged to have had Shona Keoghan as our Real Estate Agent. We were selling our house in Whangarei while we were overseas. Shona is honest, trustworthy and fair. She went out of her way to keep us informed and make the selling process as easy as she possibly could. We have no hesitation in recommending Shona. Whether selling or buying, this lovely lady will do her utmost to make the whole process as stress free and professional as possible.
Paula & Adrian Bain
We have been involved with Shona in buying and selling 4 properties over the years and found her friendly, willing to listen to our needs, offering advice and seeing where we're coming from, also taking into account future buyers concerns. She doesn't come across as a "pushy" agent and we feel her clients appreciate this. She is very professional in her dealings and we would recommend her to anyone interested in property. Thank you Shona for your time, patience and warm approach to your business clients. If need be we'll be back. - December 2013
Keith & Shirley Bradley
To Shona, both John and I would like to thank you very much for assisting us in finding and buying a lovelly comfortable home that fulfills our needs.

Thank you again for going the distance for us. - December 2011

Thank you so much for your guidance through the sale of our house in Onerahi. We really appreciate your professional and friendly approach. It was because of your kind interest for the two years prior to putting the house on the market this year that we chose you to act for us and we certainly ddn't regret it! Having found the purchaser you were so patient in your dealings with her - and you got us a good price! We also appreciate your efforts in trying to find a house for us to purchase. You were also instrumental as our agent in finding a rental property for our daughter int he UK and we really appreciate your good advice.

Shona was easy to relate to, she listened to what we wanted and was very obliging to work around our busy schedules and of course she ultimately got the result that we wanted.
Matt & Irene
She was very good - tenacious in follow ups and wise in her advice. Lovely friendly lady.
Fred & Ann
Shona was very helpful but beyond that, I felt we built up a relationship which is essential when going through the stressfull experience of selling a house.
Shona went far beyond and above what her job required to sell our house.
She is a good sales person and she is still human unlike some real estate people
