Your extremely professional help was the key to our buying success. We just can't thank you enough! We are so impressed by your knowledge and attitude that I'm sure we'll work together again.
Again, thanks so much and we'll talk soon.
A one hour meeting with Stephen at HomeFinders saved me months of work learning about the housing market in Auckland.
Stephen was more than happy to visit the property I ultimately selected to make sure it fit the criteria we had discussed prior to me making an offer. At this point, Stephen even suggested a reputable company who undertook the building inspection the next day.
A fantastic service that I have recommended to my entire family!
Finding HomeFinders was a Godsend; we truly believe they saved us weeks if not months of looking. They provided excellent advice on where to buy, taking into account our budget and other specifications, then proceeded to find houses that met the requirements we had given them.
We have no hesitation in recommending HomeFinders, if we had not found them we believe we would either still be looking for our dream home or living in a compromise.
We can highly recommend employing Home Finders to help you with your search for a property in Auckland.
Living in Canada and having limited time and no recent experience of the real estate market in NZ, we asked Stephen to search out a suitable property for us. Based on our discussions by phone and email, Stephen thoroughly researched likely properties. When we arrived in Auckland everything was in place to maximise our viewing time by narrowing the field to properties that really interested us. We where then able to make a well informed offer on what we considered to be the very best home. We could not have achieved this by ourselves. We would have no hesitation in employing Stephen again in this capacity.
We needed an apartment fairly swiftly: sound build (no leaks), safe neighbourhood, good resale potential. Being out-of-towners we encountered problems with access to property and communicating quickly and clearly with agents. This became quite stressful and potentially could have gone on forever. Fortunately we came across HomeFinders. Stephen has comprehensive knowledge of the Auckland property market. He understood our situation and provided a range of potential properties fitting our criteria. He recommended specialists we were able to access to complete the analysis and purchase. Communication was brilliant and we gained the confidence we were making a wise purchase. I would never try to make such a purchase unaided again and I would highly recommend Stephen to anyone in a similar situation.
I found the HomeFinders Service to be extremely professional, with Stephen offering a comprehensive overview of the Auckland property market then tailoring this to meet my own particular location and lifestyle preferences. Stephen helped me focus in on key areas and property features, saving me tremendous amounts of time and effort during the apartment hunt.
We were moving from the UK to Auckland so we contacted HomeFinders to search for houses for us. The selection they came up with reflected our needs and interests and the houses were all perfectly suitable. Once we had agreed on the property they were very helpful in getting us moved in and settled down. Finding rental properties can be a tedious and stressful experience and it was great to have these factors taken out of the equation by HomeFinders.
Stephen has that rare ability to truly empathise with clients even when they are on the other side of the world. We were extremely impressed with Stephen to accurately understand our needs and then execute them, whilst maintaining strict budgets and timescales. Overall 10/10.
Just moved in! We love the space and light of the house and it is certainly in a great area, and suits our needs perfectly. Thanks very much, I have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone in need of help to look for a place in Auckland!
I am absolutely elated with the purchase - a really great end result.
Moving to New Zealand from Japan with a dog and two cats in tow had us really anxious until we found HomeFinders. After buying Stephen's EXCELLENT books and going through them, we decided to take full advantage of his expertise and have him help us find a rental property. Stephen listened carefully to our needs and found us a place that was perfect for us as we settle into a new country. He and his wife went the extra mile to make sure we were well taken care of in our first couple of weeks here. We firmly believe that without Stephen's expert help, we would either still be looking for a place a month down the road, or would have settled for something much less suitable.
Thanks Stephen for all your work and the three pets also thank you for finally getting them a big backyard.
Stephen was very helpful in providing an objective perspective of our intended property purchase and helped us establish our maximum price limit.
On auction day Stephen represented us while we were on the other end of a phone in Sydney. He was very calm and consultative throughout and was ultimately successful in buying the property on our behalf against stiff competition. We are convinced his experience, strategy and bidding advice saved us a significant amount of money and gave us a winning advantage.
Discovering HomeFinders was as great a find as the true gem of a home you found for me!
Stephen's in depth knowledge of Auckland real estate plus his friendly and professional approach make him THE person to go to if you want to take the pain out of buying a property in Auckland. Stephen's fee, which was a fixed sum, was totally reasonable. We highly recommend him.
We are not novice home buyers but realised that in a highly competitive market we needed every advantage we could muster to secure the home we wanted. Stephen’s astute advice and recommendations were right on the money when it came to securing our dream property in a little known market with a challenging agent. Without his patient and calming influence, ready availability, knowledge of the inner workings of real estate and insightful strategy we would not be the very happy and relieved home owners we are. We would unreservedly recommend Stephen.
I am very happy with my property purchase and don't believe I would have got it for the price I did without Stephen. It was definitely money well spent. I would certainly engage Stephen again for another property purchase and I've already referred three friends/acquaintances to Auckland HomeFinders.
Thanks for your resilience & help throughout. Your advice and support has been unwavering which is much appreciated. Thank you.
Just a quick note to say thank you for your help in finding us our first home. We are thrilled with the outcome and are looking forward to moving in.
Happy dancing all over the house right now! Thank you thank you thank you!
