What They Say


  • 10/10. Gary Thornton went over and above what was expected of him. He was professional, knowledgeable and easy to deal with. I’ll definitely be using his services again in the future.

  • 10/10. I just wanted to drip you a note to say thanks Gary Thornton for all the hard work you put in with the sale at Castleton Street. I’m truly thankful that we had you on our side as you made things so easy for us, while I’m sure it was no easy task with us up North, but nothing was too hard for you. You went above and beyond and all that was left for me to do was change address ... ha too easy. Gary, from me and the missus, thanks a big bundle wishing you all the best, and if you are ever in Ruawai the first beer is on me

    Sylvia & Robert
  • Shane Crowle - Very professional approach - listened to our particular requirements, acted on them and communication was brilliant at all times. Couldn't have been better.

  • Steve Brennan and Winnie Leung – I cant believe my luck in choosing you to market and sell my house in Red Beach. I would like to personally thank you both for a very professional approach – from initial assessment to weekly updates, to dealing with tenants, auction details and so on. It was even more of a fantastic choice of agents once I found out you were a professional photographer plus not to mention a registered auctioneer. Talk about a one stop real estate agency. I didn't have to look elsewhere for great presentation photographs or use an agency auctioneer who wasn't committed or au fait with the property.

    Helen Schwass
  • I selected 5 agents out of the property press. I phoned Winnie Leung & Steve Brennan for an appraisal among 4 other agencies. Winnie was warm with no pressure, exceeded presentation, marketing proposition and commission rates.
