What my customers have to say
What Dougal Stewart has to say
"Well thank you for doing a great job of managing the process - in my book you definitely went the extra mile for us. We got a huge turnout on the day and I know many auctions are drab affairs with only a smattering of people and no serious bidders. It was a bit surreal having friends in the role of agent, bidder (Mac) and whatever I was - but we were all professional and got the result."
What Max Brown has to say
"It's been a real pleasure working with you to get this family home on the market and sold. I was very impressed with the way the marketing plan came together ensuring that such a unique property had wide exposure. The aerial shots and video were brilliant, as was the full page spread in the Beacon!
Your excellent communication and feedback during the entire process was a key factor as well, given there were four parties needing to be kept in the loop. We got a fantastic result on the day which I'm sure was down to your hard work and leaving no stone unturned. Please pass on our thanks to all involved at Professionals.
All the best."
What Craig and Sue Hadfield has to say
"Thank you for your personal touch with selling our rental property at Ohope Beach. You found us a willing buyer in a fickle local market that is clouded by Council classifications of land risk assessment and biodiversity. Your ability to speak with clarity and knowledge about the value of a property is backed by your respected reputation, having owned a successful accounting business in Whakatane. You kept us up to date on all actitvity and followed through on leads quickly. When it came time to negotiate with the Purchaser on an offer, you were able to shortcut the process encouraging a sensible offer that closed the deal. The "Barney touch" made the difference."
What Anne and Anel Fella has to say
"Barney, we would like to thank you and the team at Professionals for selling our house in such record time, which took away a lot of stress in an already stressful time for us. We really appreciate your professionalism, dedication and hard work. Barney you are upfront, honest and a pleasure to deal with."
What Mark Jenkins has to say
"How important is it to you that you have a Real Estate Agent:
1. Who you can Trust?
2. Who understands contracts and finance?
3. Is a great negotiator? and
4. Has great people skills?
If these 4 attributes are essential for you, then I would have no hesitation in recommending Barney Gray to you. I have known Barney for over 15 years, have worked closely with him and have the utmost respect for his honesty and integrity. While a career in Real Estate is something new for Barney, his commercial and District Council knowledge will be a great asset for prospective vendors and purchasers.
I would happily support this testimonial by phone if needed."
