I would like to thank Bob and Christine Howard for their professionalism, commitment and kind understanding, of what could have been a much more stressful time for our Mum and Dad, in managing the sale of their property which had been the family "home" for nearly 50 years. The reassuring chats and considered advices given during the sale process, together with the careful planning of the auction timing, were invaluable. Bob and Christine promoted the property vigorously, both locally and through the extended Harcourts network, to secure strong interest from potential purchasers to attend the auction, which resulted in achieving a terrific result that exceeded all our expectations.

After buying our property through Bob, He was an obvious choice to go back to for our sale. We were well informed throughout and during the Auction process giving us confidence that we would achieve a good price. On the Auction day we were astounded with the result with a sale price far in excess of our expectations.

We would recommend Bob to anyone wanting to sell or buy.

Stacey & Rachelle Jones

Bob & Christine Howard, were a pleasure to deal with. They were extremely professional, provided regular updates with great market response information in fact we could not fault their communication and availability throughout the campaign.

They ultimately achieved a great result and a timely sale on our property.

Allan & Andrea Dickinson

We originally purchased our Kumeu property through Bob at Harcourts Kumeu, so when deciding to resell the decision was easy, as we trust his knowledge and integrity, and again it was a great experience. Bob runs a good ship, has surrounded himself with a great team who go out of there way to ensure the end result exceeds your expectations. Bob has a sound working knowledge of the area which he freely shares with others and over the years has been involved greatly in community activities.

Dear Bob,

We would like to express how much we appreciated the efforts you put into selling our house. We especially appreciated the extra’s (eg: spending time with window shoppers, the fantastic advertising). Those little extras meant a great deal to us. Your respect for our goals with selling our property and getting us what we wanted out of this was the biggest and maybe the best part of the service you offered. We felt that the quality of service and the presentation of our property couldn’t be bettered by another real estate agent. Never an inconvenience always felt well looked after. We will definitely recommend you to any and all.

Dear Bob

We would just like to thank you for your support and professionalism in the selling of our property and the purchase of our new land. You went the extra mile to ensure that you worked hard for us, as vendors, but at the same time gave us succinct information about the market value and at all times during the process, supported our decisions. When the process of purchasing our new land, was not so straight forward, you facilitated communicatation with all parties, and provided us with the continuing confidence, in which you gave us during the selling of our property.

As you know, the buying and selling of properties is an extremely stressful business, and you managed to put us at ease during the whole process.  As you also know, we are not the easiest of clients and we have high expectations of everyone we work with and you thoroughly met our expectations.  Bob, we found you nothing other than honest, trustworthy, professional and your conduct, well above and beyond the call of duty.  We were absolutely thrilled with the price you obtained for our property and even more pleased with the final positive outcome in purchasing.

I would have no hesitation in recommending you to future cliental and if we decide to go through this process again, we would be utilising your services without a second thought.

Kris & Craig Hughes

Bob has helped us sell two of our homes and purchase our current house. We have never had a real estate agent work so tirelessly to  help us achieve our goal. When buying he took the time to listen to our family requirements and find homes that matched our needs.

When selling he worked with our schedule and gave us honest feedback. He was also able to surpass all our expectations.

Bob has a fantastic reputation and I would highly recommend his expertise to anyone thinking of selling their home.

Kia ora Bob,

Well, today is settlement day and we've received all the documentation through from our Lawyer.

I've really appreciated all that you did for us! The TV programs that I've seen (and I've seen a few) was not the reality for me.

You made the process sooo damn easy! I still can't believe how smooth it went!

I'd really like to say a BIG thank you.
