  • John Hodge

    John Hodge

    Business Owner/Photographer

    John has been a shareholder, along with his wife Dallas, of Riverlands Real Estate since April 2008. With the purchase of the remaining shareholding in April 2012 John has now decided to take a more active part in the business. John’s previous career as a Crime Scene Examiner with the New Zealand Police spanned more than 20 years and required him to deal with people from all walks of life in often demanding situations whilst maintaining professionalism, attention to detail and exemplary record keeping. He is well used to the formalities of the legal system and its processes. Having also owned investment properties in the past, John understands the importance of communicating with owners to keep them informed of problems with tenancies such as rent arrears, maintenance issues or damage. Although a new career for John he will be well supported by the rest of the Property Management team, and with his previous experience will bring a unique set of skills to strengthen our property management department.

    Maria Hearn

    Sales Consultant

    Maria has recently completed her real estate license and is fresh, energetic and very motivated! In the past she has bought, sold and built family homes, and has owned the management rights on a residential complex of 24 villas, including managing the rental side of that business, so Maria understands from all sides how stressful and time consuming it can be being a buyer, seller and a landlord. After many years of being in the customer service industry she understands how important honesty, integrity and good consistent communication is. Currently Maria spends her spare time with her partner, sons, granddaughter and pet dogs, and together they are renovating their family home (which she loves!). You’ll love your new home too. So if you are looking to buy or sell and want a fresh, dedicated agent working with you, then give Maria a call, she would love to hear from you!

    Sales Consultant & Auctioneer

    I have lived in Huntly for 35 years and during this time been involved in the Livestock Industry, servicing the North Waikato. I first became involved in Real Estate as an Auctioneer, calling Auctions for Harcourts and LJ Hooker. This grew my interest in Real Estate. 17 years ago, I made the call to become a Rural Real Estate Consultant and combine this with my livestock business. I have an extensive knowledge of the area and a wide circle of contacts, which makes me well placed to service all rural real estate needs. So, if you’re thinking Waikato and Rural Real Estate, then be sure to give me a call.

    Sandra Stewart

    Sales Consultant

    I have been involved in Real Estate since 1982, and have enjoyed every minute. Originally as a Salesperson, then as a Branch Manager/Sales Manager, gaining an Associate Membership (AREINZ) and when changes came, becoming a Licensed Agent under the REAA 2008. Having recently trained as an Auctioneer, I now experience the theatre of the Auction room and the pleasure of achieving successful outcomes for Vendors and Purchasers using this method of selling. As a wife, and mother of 2, I understand how the selling or buying process can impact on a family, I also understand the importance of finding the right house for your family to enjoy, and the need to achieve a sale or purchase allowing a family to stay together when a member is transferred because of employment changes. One of the keys to a successful sale or purchase is choosing the right Real Estate Consultant. Someone who knows how to market and negotiate, resulting in finding the best property for you or achieving best sale price for your property in any market. As an experienced agent, I have worked all the sale cycles Huntly has experienced, the good, the bad the ugly, and can tailor a marketing plan to suit. These factors are crucial for a successful outcome, so if you or someone you know are thinking of selling or buying – call me. Sandra Stewart AREINZ • 34 years’ experience in the Huntly Market • AREINZ Qualified. REAA 2008 Licensed Agent • Committed to your needs • Enthusiastic about the future of Huntly Testimonials: Our property had been on the market for 60 days with another agent, with nothing happening. Harcourts, with Sandra as their representative took over, with a week her first client viewed. Within a month the property was sold. She is a cheerful, caring person, with an interest in her clients and their interest at heart. A Peattie Your quick follow-up on a discussion we had, was the reason we worked with you as an agent. There was no pressure applied to buy, and you where able to come up with a very good result for us. B Caird What we remember most working with Sandra is she is very pleasant, helpful and willing to assist, and co-operative though out the whole process. Thank you very much.

  • Shelley Moffitt

    Shelley Moffitt

    Sales Consultant

    Shelley is a true-blue Huntly local having lived in the area all her life. She has a very supportive husband and two children, Jordan and Toby, not to forget their two Boxers, two cats, four chickens and two horses! She has previously worked in administrative roles at Stace Hammond Grace (Solicitors, Hamilton), Kosoof & Co (Chartered Accountants, Huntly) and Solid Energy New Zealand Ltd (Opencast Mine, Rotowaro) tallying up 19 years administration experience and knowledge. Wanting to be in a more hands on position along with the ability to spend more time with her growing children and have the flexibility Real Estate can provide, she decided to head down this path. She has been selling residential and lifestyle properties since 2013 and appreciates that buying or selling property can be one of the most stressful events in a person's lifetime. With Shelley’s commitment, amiable personality and honesty to name a few, she aims for it to be as stress free as possible. She looks forward to working with you and sharing her knowledge of the area that she has grown up in. It really is a surprising place when you take a look around and see what Huntly can offer. “Great service comes from the heart” Recent Testimonial: "As first home buyers we've experienced all sorts of interesting stuff from agents- everything from deliberate misinformation and pressure around our budget to casual sexism and disdain- not to mention the blowhard spin around how inaccessible the property market is for 'buyers like us'. Then we met Shelley! She treated us seriously and with respect right from the outset- she treated us like people- like equals (which made a refreshing change from some other agents we've come across)! She was flexible around our busy schedules- arranging a viewing the afternoon of an Open home because we couldn't make the time, happy to do our pre-settlement inspection on a Sunday even though she had family visiting (and bring us a 'sold' sign so we could have a picture in front of our house!) She answered all of our questions openly- at the viewing she wasn't 100% sure on a couple of points so rang the vendor on the spot to find out- she took time to find out what we were into and gave information about clubs and things in the area, and she kept her communication up right throughout the process. Shelley turned something that, up until that point had been a frustrating demoralising and stressful exercise into something I really enjoyed. We very much appreciate all of her work and can't wait to get involved in our new community. We will definitely be recommending Shelley and your office to friends who are house hunting." R Elliott
