Trenton Hodson - About Me
Your Area Specialist
Having been in Real Estate for 20 years, I have a wealth of Experience.
Some years ago I recognised that to ensure that the best possible job is done for my clients, I needed to specialize in a geographical area I knew best. Naturally the area I chose was my own neighbourhood.
I believe that I have a greater understanding than others about why my neighbourhood is such a great place to live. When a buyer asks “what is this area like”, by being able to answer, “FANTASTIC....I own my home around the corner”, it certainly speaks volumes to those buyers!
Furthermore, I pride myself on giving my clients a First Class service and ensuring that their needs are always taken care of. Many Awards and many years later I am still more than ever, excited and ‘hungry’ to be the very best
“Tried, Proven and Trusted.”
I first met Trenton Hodson at an open home he was presenting in One Tree Hill. It is often said that people decide within the first 30 seconds of meeting someone whether they will like this person. I was extremely impressed by his professionalism and personal style. At the time of meeting Trenton we were selling our property in One Tree Hill with another agency. Our house had been on the market for 3 months without attracting many potential buyers or any offers being presented. I decided to terminate this agency’s contract and to sign up with L.J. Hooker Royal Oak and for Trenton to market our property. I am delighted to advise that our house was sold by Trenton 3 weeks later at a price that was agreeable for all parties. I then went on to purchase our next property through him. I liked Trenton’s relaxed style and his personal presentation. He is an excellent communicator and (unlike a lot of agents) was always punctual. He is a true professional and I look forward to having further dealings with him in the future.

We initially met Trenton when looking at an open home that he was presenting. He followed up with us and after a period of time we decided to put our property at 66 Quadrant Road, Onehunga on the market. After talking to several agents from different real estate agencies we decided to go with Trenton. The reasons for this were that we found Trenton to be very polite and well mannered, was not pushy and worked well with us. We were more than happy with the way that Trenton marketed our property even under trying circumstances at times. When the crunch came Trenton acted promptly and also came up with some suggestions that we had not thought of. I do not hesitate to recommend him to anybody wishing to sell their property through him. We wish Trenton well in the future and are sure he will be very successful in his chosen career

I recently sold a property in Tawhiri Road, One Tree Hill, and engaged Trenton Hodson as my agent. Despite the onset of a downturn in the market I was very impressed with Trenton’s performance. He obtained a sale for me in a very short time and at a price that was very acceptable to both myself, as the vendor, and also to the purchaser. He is a superb professional. Behind his quiet and polite manner is an expert in his business. If you want to engage an agent who listens to your needs and works tirelessly to obtain your satisfaction, then I would recommend you look no further than Trenton.

I bought and sold my house through Trenton and always liked dealing with him. His advice at all times was honest and when it came to selling he promised he’d work hard for me, and I knew that he would. I left every decision to him and was not disappointed. People say buying and selling houses can be a stressful time, and I can see how it could be, but with Trenton, you’re dealing with an expert and that takes away ninety percent of the stress. Trenton knows people, he knows property and he’s passionate about them both. You can tell he loves his job and that makes a huge difference. To sum him up I’d say this: he’s one of the most motivated, energetic, professional and (most importantly when buying and selling houses) ethical people I have ever met. Buying or selling in this area, my wife and I won’t deal with any other agent.

It is my pleasure to write this testimonial for Trenton Hodson of L. J Hooker Real Estate Agents. Recently I made the decision to sell a property at Seacliffe Road, Hillsborough. Realising that the property market was at a low ebb, I was delighted how efficiently Trenton presented the various options of marketing the property. Trenton has many fine qualities which he exhibited during the weeks of our association. His expertise in all facets of his profession were exceptional especially his ability to give support and encouragement during a very stressful time. At all times he gave a factual and professional assessment of the situation and his personal demeanour was beyond reproach. I am happy to say that the sale was successful and the interest and support Trenton gave after the sale was exceptional. Our relationship has progressed to one of friendship and respect. I have no hesitation in recommending Trenton to any prospective vendor and wish him every scucess in his future endeavours.

Also, we would like to express our thanks and appreciation for your help in selling our property in Wade Avenue, Onehunga. From the very start (signing up) until our property was sold, you have carried out the whole process with tact and in a very professional manner. Your knowledge in the industry and your negotiation skills are very impressive. You certainly have carried out the sale in an easy and in a less stressful way for us. Again, we say, we are grateful for your help and we will not hesitate to recommend you to any prospective vendor especially to our family and friends. We wish you all the best in your future endeavours

In the course of the sale and auction of two properties in Auckland this year, it was our good fortune to be assigned the services of Trenton Hodson through Challenge Royal Oak Realty Ltd. During this time the qualities that Trenton possesses have changed what was a working relationship into one of friendship. He has beautiful manners, so all his dealings are carried out with courtesy and patience. Added to this are his qualities of honesty, enthusiasm and efficiency. Above all, he has the very rare ability of being an excellent listener, and is thus able to help with what are often underlying concerns. Yet in spite of his ease of manner, he has the strength of resolve to act very decisively at crucial moments; a factor which certainly led to the success of our two property transactions. Trenton is an exceptional young man who is able to bridge the generations. We place our utmost trust in his professionalism and recommend him unreservedly.

When it came time to sell our most important asset the biggest question we faced was who we would we trust. Who would we chose to ensure that we received the best possible price and that our interests would be taken care of. We had been receiving flyers and information from Trenton Hodson “The Area Specialist” at REMAX for some time and decided he would be a good person to talk through our plans with. It was certainly refreshing to talk with him as he has a huge knowledge of the area and seemed to know everything that was going on. What is more, he had a number of buyers wanting to move into the area, whom he showed through our home. We spoke to several other companies and their agents but it was clear that Trenton was far better equipped with his knowledge and skills to meet our needs. Many thanks Trenton- we really appreciated your assistance, constant communication and expertise and will continue to use your services for all of our real estate needs

When my wife and I decided to put our house on the market we began to look for a suitable Real Estate Agent to market our property. Although we hadn’t met Trenton he was already familiar to us as over the time we had lived in Epsom we continually saw his signs on the many properties he had marketed and felt he was somewhat of an area specialist. After our first meeting my wife and I felt very comfortable with Trenton, we found him to be very professional, polite, and in know way pushy as some agents can be. We had met with other agents but liked Trenton’s approach and decided to list with him. We found Trenton’s marketing strategy to be exactly right for our property and after only two weeks he was able to fmd a suitable buyer. We did have some issues in coming to an agreement with the purchaser, however with his calm and professional negotiation skills Trenton was able to fmd a solution that suited both parties whilst giving us an excellent price for our house. Having had unpleasant experiences with agents in the past it was a pleasure to work with Trenton, I would be happy to list with him in the future and have no hesitation in recommending him.

Ian and I would like to thank you very much for the assistance you gave us in selling our property. From the moment you gained the listing, we found the selling experience a simple and effective process with you keeping us constantly informed while maintaining a professional but friendly and caring attitude; listening and taking note of any concerns, making us feel we were still in control of the situation. Selling a house can be one of the most stressful experiences one can go through, to have a agent who identifies with you and helps to alleviate a large percentage of that and works for you the vendor (and not the purchaser) with honesty and integrity takes most of the stress away. We would like to recommend you to any prospective vendors.
Andrea & Ian Bartram - Royal Oak
Jim and I would both like to thank you very much indeed for the work you did to ensure a successful house sale for us last month. We were enormously impressed with your professionalism, accessibility, knowledge of the market, and negotiating skills. You will be aware that Jim approached the whole exercise with some suspicion based on previous experiences buying and selling property, but your whole approach and the way a successful sale was made so rapidly, has changed his view. We were delighted with the way it went from beginning to end and if we contemplate selling again we will be back to see you. Thanks again Trenton, we’re really over the moon!
Kate Cater - Epsom
From our very first meeting we were impressed with the openness and care that Trenton brought to the sale process and it gave us complete peace of mind. He proved himself to be a man of utter integrity, open and honest with no hidden agendas. He was never pushy and maintained an excellent level of communication throughout. In drawing up the sales agreement, Trenton went to great pains to explain all options for selling, including marketing strategies and all the fees that would be incurred. He was always professional but his friendly helpful manner made everything so easy. We would have no hesitation in using Trenton again or recommending him to family or friends alike as he treats you as a special and valued client. His aftersales follow up was excellent too and we are very satisfied. Trenton was chosen because he presented well and delivered everything he promised
I wish to thank you for the wonderful assistance and guidance you portrayed during my recent sale and purchase of property in Hollywood Avenue. You were always there to listen, sometimes to many issues and demands without in any way being intrusive. By your clever negotiation skills you got the buyers to the price which I was happy to settle with. I wish you every success in the future and am happy to pass your name on to anyone I know who may require help.
Viv Smith - Epsom
Our past experiences with other real estate agents and companies have not always been positive, but with Trenton it was completely different. We trusted him to show buyers through our home that he had been dealing with and he found us a buyer immediately who paid us a top price that we were happy with. Trenton made the whole process pleasant and totally painless which in my opinion is priceless and we couldn't be happier with how it all went. Trenton is a true professional and we would thoroughly recommend him and his services.
Martin and Glenis Watson - Royal Oak
I have had considerable dealings with real estate agents as I have previously purchased investment properties, and I would like to commend Trenton on his professional, informative and caring approach to us. By fluke, we drove by the property one cold wintery Sunday and he was informative yet unobtrusive. I called him later saying that 800k was the furthest I could go, yet he still invited me to the offices and extracted an additional 70k from me. Top job! He made a financial decision very easy and his after service care is second to none.
