We asked Alan to assist us in our attempt to buy a house at auction. He was hugely helpful with both his guidance before the auction and also in attending the auction alongside us. Having his expertise was fantastic and contributed to our eventual success in purchasing the home. We then engaged Alan to market our home for us. From the first moment we were convinced that we had made the right decision. He made the process pain-free and enjoyable. He was very clear and consistent in his communication. We greatly appreciated Alan’s advice on simple cosmetic improvements we could make to attract the highest bids at auction. His follow up after each Open Home was exemplary – we were kept completely informed every step of the way. We also appreciated the way he treated all potential buyers with honesty and respect, and we have no doubt that this contributed to our auction being attended by 80+ people. We successfully sold our house at auction and were thrilled with the result. Alan’s help allowed us to sell for a fantastic price, and it was a price which he more or less predicted at the outset (meaning that our expectations were realistic throughout the process). We would absolutely recommend Alan to anyone looking to sell their home.
Thanks for everything.


Alan’s intimate knowledge of the Takapuna property market enabled us to sell our Mon Desir apartment extremely quickly, and at a premium price. Alan listened carefully to our wishes, was not “pushy”, and presented excellent suggestions culminating in an excellent result for both ourselves and the purchasers. Alan stands very tall amongst the largely run of the mill real estate sales community. We highly recommend Alan to work with you to solve your Real Estate needs.
