We really admired the high level of commitment that Andrew displayed when working with us, both as home buyers and sellers. We were extremely impressed with the way that he marketed our house, resulting in a high level of interest and a quick sale. He is an exceptional and friendly real estate agent with a genuine desire to do the best he can for his clients and a first-class salesperson with a high level of integrity.

Joe and Katie

 

We contacted Andrew when buying our second home because he was interested and proactive when we were looking for our first house 10 years ago. Written communication was always timely, easy to understand and he remained in contact. Andrew is realistic, genuinely caring, follows up, and acts with honesty and a high level of integrity.

Debbie and Mark

 

We are English and he took us through the buying of a house in New Zealand brilliantly. He found the types of property we liked and gave guidance on areas we would be happy to live in.

Hilary and Frank

 

Andrew explained everything really clearly and kept me up to date with where everything was at – great communication!

Jesse

 

We were lucky enough to meet Andrew when out searching for our next home. We were impressed by his friendliness, honesty and professionalism in selling the home he was in. This made it an easy decision when selecting an agent to sell our home. While working with Andrew we found him to be reliable, realistic, punctual and in general a good bugger! We will have no hesitation in using Andrew in the future and would recommend him to anyone.

Mark and Del

 

My partner and I were recently lucky enough to have Andrew Swift acting as our agent in the process of purchasing a new property. Andrew was always prompt in notifying us of relevant properties and more than happy to accompany us in the many viewings required to find the perfect property. Not to mention the many phone calls we made with questions, with Andrew often “popping over” for an update and a chat. We found his insights and opinions to be very helpful and never misleading, a quality we cannot overstate the value of. Before and during the auction he was always there to explain and advise so that we were fully confident and as relaxed as possible. What was for us, a potentially stressful and confusing time was made so much more manageable by the personal attention and patience that Andrew showed. We could not recommend him more fully to anyone wishing to purchase or sell in the future.

Lisa and Ken

 

 

Andrew is the consummate professional and trustworthy. Excellent sign, photographs and service.

Tim

 

We were greatly impressed and appreciative of Andrew’s help and assistance with the sale. Our house was deemed uneconomic to repair but this did not minimise the effort Andrew put into marketing it. Andrew had to write up new conditions to protect our interests, those of the buyer and the insurance company. He liaised with all parties and the sale went through within a month of first going on the market. We were very impressed with Andrew’s skills and help in this matter and even though it was not a ‘big ticket’ sale he was always available and gave 100% commitment to getting a positive result for all. We highly recommend his services to anyone who is wanting to sell.

Nikki and Steve

We highly recommend Andrew Swift as a fantastic and professional agent with great local knowledge. He got us a great result in the sale of our house even though we were in unique situation. He was a fabulous support and was very caring for our situation.

Tracy and Matthew
 
 

Andrew worked hard in his presentation and did not spare any effort to do this; our property was well presented at all levels of the marketing products. He was intent on selling the property and we had the feeling that this was the only property he was involved with although we knew that he was giving the same service to all his clients. We were indeed fortunate to have Andrew as our agent and the personal service that he gave.

Bill and Elizabeth

 

 

After selling my parents’ property and being one of the top consultants in Parklands, we decided to choose for Andrew as our sales consultant to sell our property. Andrew kept us informed every step of the way and made time for us, always with a smile and a positive attitude. The photographs and wording on our property were superb. In summary, a hard job well done!

Sheryl and Dave

 

 

We knew that selling in a TC3 area was not going to be straight forward. Andrew’s positive yet realistic attitude throughout the procedure was so important to us. His commitment, work effort, diligence, honesty and integrity were outstanding and the marketing material that was produced to advertise our property was excellent. We’re so glad he was recommended to us!

Nigel and Sue

 

 

Andrew is an excellent agent and we would recommend him to anyone needing to sell, or indeed buy a property, as we have dealt with him in both capacities.

Mel and Johnny

 

With the recent sale of our property we found that Andrew was, once again, helpful, informative and professional throughout the auction process. He made it uncomplicated and easy to follow. The marketing material was good and effective. Andrew empathised with our situation and made us feel comfortable throughout the process. He was always able to answer any queries we had with speed and efficiency and respected our opinions. We would definitely recommend Andrew’s services in the future.

Steve and Niki

 

 

Andrew was an excellent communicator and very easy to deal with. He is highly professional in every aspect of his role and a pleasure to work with.

Dave and Pip

 

 

We always thought Andrew was the best real estate agent we've ever encountered because he always gave people plenty of space to discuss things between themselves and make their mind up. He was never pushy like some salespeople who have their eye too much on their commission and not enough on meeting their customers' needs. Andrew’s the best kind of salesperson because he listens to his customers and tries his best to give them what they want.

Andrew and Christine

 

 

Andrew kept me informed all through the process of selling my property and I felt I was the only client he was dealing with. He was always focussed on my needs.

Norma and Helen

 

As an elderly widow with a house to sell for the first time in my life I felt it would be a very daunting task, but my very wise daughter recommended Andrew to be the real estate agent I would use and everything seemed so much easier then. Andrew’s professional approach was impressive but his care and consideration meant so much to me. I would have no hesitation in recommending Andrew.

Mrs Oliver

 

We used Andrew as our listing agent because of the positive experience we had when buying our house 4 years ago. Even when we had a couple of offers fall through, he carried on the process and eventually we ended up with the best buyer and the best deal we could have wanted! Andrew was very open with communication and easy to get hold of. He made the whole process so easy and stress-free for us.

Dougal and Kirstie

 

Selling our “as is where is” home was the final step in moving on post-earthquake – an emotionally charged situation that was made easier by Andrew and his team.

Throughout the campaign he listened to us and was realistic and supportive.
