See what our clients have to say

Thanks to Caleb, Peter and team for the ongoing support, coaching and encouragement in the sale of our property. The result speaks for the hard work and commitment you gave to our home. Thank you so much for all you did.


David and Denise Cooper
Sale of 15 Roa Road, Fendalton
 



I couldn't rate these guys highly enough. We approached Team Griff after our house had failed to sell the first time around, and after we had moved to the North Island.


They worked hard to entice would be buyers and found an excellent marketing plan to work with our limited budget. During the marketing process they came forward with solutions rather than problems and organised everything which took a huge amount of stress off our shoulders.


Our house sold at auction which we were pleasantly surprised about, given we had failed to attract an offer previously. I have previously been pretty pessimistic about the real estate profession but these guys have changed my mind.

Sale of 3 Monterey Place, Parklands
 


 

Caleb and Griff were absolutely brilliant to deal with when we wanted to sell our house "as is". We went to them because they have a proven track record in selling these types of houses and their expertise showed right from our first meeting. We found them to be extremely friendly, helpful and efficient. Nothing was a problem and any queries were quickly dealt with by phone and email.


We were in Australia when the house was auctioned and Caleb organised a conference call to keep us up to date while the auction took place. We were also able to live stream and watch the auction on line.


The auction sale price was just above the price range they had indicated so we were absolutely rapt and it showed how good their market knowledge is.


We would absolutley recommend Caleb and Griff to anyone either for buying or selling a property. They made the whole experience very easy for us.

Sale of 37 Chartwell Street, Burwood

 


 

Our family trust needed to sell the family home and we wanted to take it to the market to get the best price for it. Peter Griffoen was recommended to us by an already satisfied client of his and we were grateful for this referral.

Peter has a dedicated team behind him and together they provided us with a great package and superb level of service that we think is a benchmark for other real estate agents in Christchurch to follow. Throughout Peter was highly professional in his engagement with us. He had the experience and customer focus to be flexible in accommodating our specific needs in taking the property to market, he was proactive in his communication, and he was able to plainly represent the options to us as we went through the pre-auction and auction processes.

Peter and his team did a great job in marketing the house – they got 50 different parties through the open homes and 7 registered bidders to the auction – all just in two weeks prior to the property going to auction. The result was a competitive bidding process that resulted in a price and a sale on the auction floor that exceeded our expectations.

Peter, thanks for your patience in dealing with all of our queries and maintaining your professionalism throughout. A combination of your experience, depth of team, communications, and high integrity set you apart from your competitors. We have no hesitation in recommending others to you.


John and Anne Morrow
Sale of 99 Stanbury Avenue, Somerfield

 



We recently had a very successful Harcourts sale with a better than expected auction result - all with the help of Peter Griffioen and his team from the Parklands office.

It was a no-brainer to entrust the sale of our Queenspark home to Griff. Griff is an outstanding professional to work with. From the pre-market consultations right through to the celebratory post-auction lunch, Griff ensured the entire process was handled with a professional and personal manner.

We thank Griff for his exceptional service and support and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him as a reliable, dedicated and professional sales consultant.


Peter and Tamsin Bobby
Sale of 140 Inwoods Close, Parklands

 


 


We would just like to say how much of a pleasure it was dealing with you throughout the selling process. You are a true professional in every sense of the word. Your local knowledge is remarkable; your conduct and ethics are exemplary. What also amazed both Sandy and myself is the 'extra mile' you went with marketing our home and dealing with potential buyers.

The whole process was actually enjoyable for us both, and we will have no hesitation in recommending you and the Harcourts brand.


Bruce and Sandy Gasson
Sale of 71 Broadhaven Avenue, Parklands

 

 

 

 



I wish to express my sincerest thanks and appreciation for all the hard work that you put in leading up to the auction of my parents' home at Warden Street. I was extremely happy with the way you made me feel so comfortable from our first meeting at the house, even though I was extremely stressed at the time.

From the beginning I was made to feel that you were committed to the sale and the fact that I was at all times kept up to date with what was happening made such a huge difference to me.

Griff, please accept my heartfelt thanks for all your hard work and the wonderful result from you and your team on auction day. I am still feeling somewhat overwhelmed with the result and would recommend to anyone selling their home to come to you and your team. I cannot speak more highly of Harcourts Gold.

Sale of 87 Warden Street, Richmond
