Thinking of selling? Want to know how much your home is worth?



My wife Rebecca and I would like to send you our compliments and thanks for the impressive way you handled the sale of our property mentioned above. Rebecca and I have bought and sold a large number of properties over the last twelve years ( we have shifted 9/10 times) and we both commented that this was the smoothest transition we have had with a Land Agent. I would like to comment on your polite manner and the lack of any stress to us as your clients -we really felt that you would work to get us our best price and that we both felt very comfortable in " handing over" the process to you.In fact we got the price we were after being 35% above CV. With my job taking me overseas on a regular basis it was important to me that Rebecca wasn't,t stressed by minor details or endless queries . You dealt with all of these in your quiet efficient manner and always travelled to us rather than the other way round and in fact today I had to ask where your office was located. Also today at our lawyers office signing the paperwork he independently commented on your quiet efficiency. Alan you were a pleasure to deal with, you were polite , efficient and placed no pressure on us at all during the sale process which Rebecca and I really appreciated and we had confidence in you which was rewarded.I would be most happy to recommend you in the future.

We brought through Alan recently a property in The Grange. Alan had extensive knowledge of The Grange and surrounding areas. Alan made this deal happen for us by his helpful manner, delivering a LIM report personally to my Solicitor and other documents that were required. After the conditional date he arranged for a tenant for us at no extra cost to the tenant or myself. Plus all the paperwork associated with this he completed. I would ask for Alans services again as he did so much more than what was required or expected of him. A very very pleasant person.

Thank you so much for your help, advice and going the "extra mile" to make the purchasing process easier for us. It's been a pleasure going through this experience with you and Lena, you've been so accommodating and patient. We look forward to settling into our new home, thanks to all your efforts.

We were leaving New Zealand and needed to sell our house ASAP. We appointed Alan and Lena to sell our house, and within days they were all action organising the wording for the advertisements, the photos and signs which were all finalised by the end of the week. Throughout the marketing campaign we were kept fully informed of progress both by phone and with detailed reports. On auction day (the 24th day of the campaign) the home sold under the hammer at a very satisfactory price, with a deposit secured. We were impressed with Alan and Lena's quick start up tiime, professionalism and follow-through. Selling one's home can be an anxious time for all. Alan and Lena smoothed this process out for us, took care of all the details, and achieved a speedy and very acceptable outcome. We highly recommend them.

We recently purchased a property through Alan Woodford, then listed our own property through him a well. Alan helped us to purchase the property we were interested in at auction and found him to be professional, guiding us and giving us confidence to make our decisions, as we had never purchased or sold at auction before. We listed our own property with Alan and sold a month later, also at auction and found him helpful during the process, as there were some complicated legal and council requirements, needing to be investigated and Alan was able to take charge of these and bring the sale of our property to a successful conclusion. Through the entire purchasing and selling process we found Alan to be extremely friendly, confident and knowledgeable giving us all the time, help and information we needed to make our decisions. He kept us informed of buyer interest and gave unlimited time to ensure the purchase and sale were both successful. He followed through helping with any problems after the sales which helped make to the move less stressful. We really appreciated Alan's help and wish him all the best and would seek him out for any future homes we may purchase. Janette & Kevin Callander
