We have used Phil's services twice now.

We have used Phil's services twice now. We met him at a house viewing when we were buying our first home & knew straight away he was the agent for us! He took all the stress out of the house buying (and there is a WHOLE LOT of stress that comes with buying a house) our first home. 
He found the perfect house for us and was fantastic in guiding us through the negotiation process. When we found ourselves out-growing our first home there was no hesitation in bringing Phil on board again to market our home, and to find our family our next home.
This time we were buying in a market that wasn't on our side as purchasers, but again he found us the perfect home that met all our needs. I wouldn't think twice about recommending Phil to others - in fact since working with Phil he has sold two other homes for our family members.

Thank you Phil for being a star agent.

We have worked with Phil for over 15 years.

We have worked with Phil for over 15 years.

We first met Phil at an Open Home in 2004. We were impressed by his calm, reassuring and knowledgeable demeanor. In the intervening period we have purchased 7 properties through Phil and he has acted as our Agent where we have been the Vendors for 5 properties.

If you are a Purchaser, you will find that Phil will understand the property inside-out and he will be a fair, honest broker....which is very important in multi-offer situations.

If you are the Vendor...Phil will provide an accurate, concise and on-the-button market appraisal. Phil's marketing skills are second to none and he understands the implications of the various go-to-market marketing strategies (eg should we tender, auction, deadline sale or private treaty?). Phil is also very deft at handling multiple buyer scenarios and negotiating the best terms and conditions for his clients. Phil's extensive database and experience in the industry means that "stale listings" aren't in his vocabulary. Upon receiving a listing Phil makes every effort to understand the property and regularly communicates and provides market feedback.

If you are a Vendor or a Purchaser in Hamilton and surrounds, I would have no hesitation in recommending Phil as your "GO-TO REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL".

Phil helped me secure a home over 6 months ago, and he was excellent to deal with and always straight up. He went out of his way to ensure it was a positive experience for me, and had great communication throughout the process.
Phil presented me with many options once he understood what I was looking for in a property, and helped find the right one for me.
Thanks Phil, I would buy a house from you again!

Recently when selling my Mother's house we discovered that it had no Code Compliance Certificate - normally this would kill a sale dead.

Recently when selling my Mother's house we discovered that it had no Code Compliance Certificate - normally this would kill a sale dead. However Phil managed the relationship whereby we had the necessary time to obtain the certificate, and the purchaser was kept informed as to where we were in regards to the process. This was not a quick process and the weeks it took to finally achieve certifiaiton were stressful, but Phil kept the communication flowing and the sale was completed.
Phil has also sold my own home and his calm, personable approach and his ability to think outside the square build both confidence and reassurance.

I would recommend Phil and have done so to anyone thinking of selling their home.

I got introduced to Phil in August 2012 over the phone.

I got introduced to Phil in August 2012 over the phone. I got his details from the website. We were about to leave New Zealand for good. I spoke to him before leaving NZ in September 2012. Over the period of 4 years Phil provided his valuable market experience and suggested a few insights which paid off eventually. I sincerely appreciate and thank Phil for all the hard work and patience he has shown when he suggested potential buyers and we turned them away until recently we made up our minds and requested Phil to get this done.
I should say Phil managed to complete the deal in less than a week and got us what we had aimed for.
I highly recommend Phil to whoever is planning to put their property on market. Phil has all the knowledge, know-how and expertise.
