Anton also helped guide us…

Anton helped us secure our dream property.  He was able to prepare us for the auction with all the information we needed to go in confidently on the day.  Anton also helped guide us through a multi-day negotiation process to a successful result, supporting our decisions and liaising with the vendor.

Anton was a great help…

When it came to selling my existing house, Anton was a great help.  He understood the environment we were selling into.  His marketing strategy and promotion of my townhouse along with great open home advice helped secure a quick sale.  I would certainly use Anton again and refer him to my friends.

A comfortable relationship without any pressure…

Once we had made the decision to put our home on the market, our biggest concern was to find an agent who was prepared to go the extra mile for us, listen to our needs and communicate fully throughout the sale process.
The thorough and inventive marketing proposal Anton put forward convinced us to list with him. Throughout the sale process we were kept well informed and his attention to detail and enthusiasm was appreciated, he never lost sight of the fact he was working for us and his easy going nature ensured a comfortable relationship without any pressure.
The work didn’t stop with a successful sale and only a few weeks later Anton helped us purchase a new family home.

We would 100% use Anton again…

When we met Anton for the first time to discuss putting our home on the market we knew we had found someone different. We never felt pressured or felt like it was out of our control which was refreshing.
He is quick and reliable and we felt safe having him deal with all the different aspects that is important when selling your home. We are absolutely stoked with the results of selling our property with Anton.  We would 100% use Anton again and happily recommend his services to friends.

His communication, enthusiasm and expertise was unmatched…

I am writing to appreciate Anton Pires for helping my husband and I find our first home. His communication, enthusiasm and expertise was unmatched by any other estate agent in my experience.  My husband and I were absolutely happy with dealing with him and would very much call upon him in the future for our real estate needs.

He was unbelievably professional as well as friendly and genuinely helpful….

Based in Sydney but wanting to return to Hamilton and secure a property with a list of must haves’ including pool with private back garden entertaining area plus one level living.  We wanted property with the WOW factor, something that would give us the feel of being on vacation all the time, so we contacted Anton.  He was unbelievably professional as well as friendly and genuinely helpful. Being busy corporate people looking for that dream property to retire in, we liked Anton’s fast efficient and focussed right on the mark approach.  He even took additional photos for us so we could easily see the pool and back garden area were totally private as he knew that was important for us. This made it easier for us to decide it was worth hopping on a plane to view the selected property. Needless to say we bought the property and are looking forward to living there!!!!  Thank you Anton.

I am so glad – you did an outstanding job of marketing and selling my property…

Dear Anton, it gives me great pleasure to recommend you to any person that would like to purchase or sell their property.  Initially, when you approached me about my property I was a bit reluctant, but your kind approach and enthusiasm really made me change my mind.  I am so glad – you did an outstanding job of marketing and selling my property.  Please feel free to use me as a reference and at any time.

Whatever I needed Anton could and would deliver…

After deciding to settle in New Zealand from the UK, and get myself my first property here, I was pretty uncertain about how the markets in New Zealand worked, what I actually wanted from my first home here and how best to go about the process.  After the first meeting with Anton, his commitment to his clients was clear. His experience in buying and selling for his own portfolio giving him a great perspective and ability to advise me on decisions was a great help- and he did a brilliant job of helping me narrow down my choices and options to figure out what was best for me.  Being constantly informed and in-touch from viewings to offers and final agreements gave me confidence in buying my first NZ home, and I knew that whatever I needed Anton could and would deliver, whilst keeping all the usual purchasing stresses at bay!!  No matter what stage of the process you are in, I would happily recommend Anton to anyone who is looking for their next home- fantastic work!!

You made our return to New Zealand a much easier task. Thank you…

Dear Anton,

Acting on our behalf to buy a section without us being on the ground, assessing the deal, evaluating building possibilities, and finally getting us one of the best sections in Rototuna / Huntington was invaluable.  You have set a new benchmark of convenience and customer support.  Anton, thank you indeed for being our agent, and for helping us close the deal at a very good price, and thanks for giving us insights on building and design.  You made our return to New Zealand a much easier task.  Thank you.

Excellent communication…

The property we were selling had been on the market unsuccessfully for 5 months prior to engaging the services of Anton.  The approach taken from him at our first meeting was vastly superior to my previous experience.  A detailed and evidence based plan was put in place around work that was required to be done to improve the appearance of the property, this work being managed by Anton.  The overarching sale plan was well presented with excellent communication and given this property was a family investment (numerous owners) his assistance and leadership shown with the process was greatly appreciated. The end result was a sale within 3 weeks.  I would be happy to recommend Anton’s services to anyone considering engaging him in the future.

Wow…

Golly Gosh, where to start when writing about this TRULY (yes I am shouting!) amazing Gentleman?…

The beginning I guess!  So, the journey begins with a referral to Anton; he meets with me immediately and starts the needs analysis – I should point out at this time that I was a buyer not a seller; so goodness only knows how much better it will be when you “List” with him!
Once the “needs analysis” is completed (painlessly), Anton then directs me to the process – in short; everything goes through him so he can act in my best intensions.  So, we find a house (listed with another Real Estate Company), Anton arranges the viewings, deals with the other agent and he walked me through what the options were, researched the market, discussed the my options with the wonderful Harcourt’s Team, you name it, it happened; no stone was unturned.  A week later my personal circumstances take a change and wow this Gentleman turns up trumps again; (taking my personal options as paramount all along), he rounded up my Lawyer (another story!), kept in touch with my Mortgage Advisor (Di Dunn from Mortgage Express – another amazing person; whom Anton also referred early on in the piece), organised a builders report and WOW all along kept a professional, organised, friendly and completely un-troublesome nature about the whole thing during one of the most stressful times of my life.  When the Sale went Unconditional the way he phoned to give me the good news that my offer was successful was amazing – this man knows people!  I cannot recommend this Gentleman & Scholar enough (and do continuously); to do a “Job”/”Run a “Business” is one thing, however to go to the lengths/going the extra mile and “see” someone through the journey that I went though is something else; the whole journey, follow up and the ongoing communication was outstanding.  In closure I know it’s a cliche to say “Surround yourself by Great People”, however this would be the epitome of that statement so my advice is… Do not list with this Gentleman at your peril!

Instantly impressed with his professionalism…

My husband and I met Anton at an Open Home and were instantly impressed with his professionalism.  It was an easy decision to ask him to market and sell our River Road home.  We of course wanted the best price so we asked Anton what we needed to do to prepare our home for marketing.  Everything he suggested worked, from some simple painting touch ups to home staging and even referring a particular photographer.  The results were stunning! Our home was sold quickly and efficiently and throughout the process Anton was keeping us updated frequently.

If we could recommend one agent to sell a house it would be Anton Pires…

Anton Pires took on the challenge of selling our house which had been marketed twice before with no offers. Alongside that, it was a ‘unique’ house with limited appeal because of its price and design but loved by us for thirty years.  Anton created a marketing package to ensure maximum exposure and response. Within three weeks he had not only organised the marketing, staging and maintenance but successfully achieved a SOLD at auction, at a price we were happy with and the only house to sell that day.  We were especially impressed by Anton’s enthusiasm, dedication and commitment with his focus on the sale of our house. It was a pleasure to work with Anton; he was available; he delivered on all promises and acted ethically at all times.  If we could recommend one agent to sell a house it would be Anton Pires.
