    Allan Hamilton

    Sales Consultant Dunedin

    I have lived in Dunedin many years and trained as a Chef at Otago Polytechnic. I then worked throughout New Zealand and Australia in hotels and restaurants and had my own Catering Business and Wholesale Bakery Business. I have quickly risen to be the No 2 Sales Consultant in the Dunedin Harcourt’s office and I believe this is due to working for the best resourced Real Estate Company and also because I am enthusiastic and have a tremendous zest in doing the tasks needed to achieve a sale for my vendor and to obtain a premium price. I have also developed real skills with people that have proved invaluable in liaising with prospective buyers. I pride myself on offering fantastic service to all my clients and I’m always happy to work outside the 9¬–5 hours in a friendly and professional manner. You can be assured I will be committed from the start to ensure a smooth deal is achieved at the end for all parties. I am hard working, approachable, honest and trustworthy with a genuine desire to help. The person who will provide you with the best service will always be the person with whom you feel most comfortable, the person in whom you feel most confident. You have to trust someone, sometime. Trust me and my proven record.

  • Rhys Vidgen

    Rhys Vidgen

    Sales Consultant Dunedin

    Rhys is a very open and enthusiastic person who comes from a very strong sales and marketing background. He has worked in the ski industry incorporating sales, marketing and promotion positions in New Zealand, Europe and the U.S.A. Rhys has owned and operated his own sports retail business for 10 years and held the National Sales Executive position for the Four Seasons (Retail Links) home and leisure chain. Combining the above work experiences with 7 years in the building industry in New Zealand and the U.S.A gives Rhys a well-rounded working experience which is well suited to the real estate industry Rhys is committed to delivering a high level of professional client service which he believes is paramount to any business transaction. This attitude results in the goal of establishing ongoing client relationships through operating with the highest amount of honesty, trust, and integrity. Outside of real estate Rhys lives in Karitane just north of Dunedin, and has special outdoor interests in skiing, kayaking, fishing, gardening and mountain biking. Rhys is married to Sara and has two beautiful daughters TESTIMONIALS I have known Rhys Vidgen for several years, and have found Rhys to be customer focused, and will always try to find a solution when one is required. He is reliable, trustworthy and I would recommend him for any role that requires integrity. I wish Rhys well for the future. -Ross Sneddon Rhys is passionate about the products he sells and matching them to the customers’ needs. -Deborah McConochie I have known Rhys for over 15 years and consider him, in both his life and business, as a very honest and reliable man. I am proud of our friendship and am more than happy to recommend him as trustworthy in any kind of business. -Heinz Schwarze One of the reasons I listed my Karitane Cottage with Rhys Vidgen was because he is a local Karitane person. From the first meeting it was like a breath of fresh air having his enthusiasm and genuine love of what he was doing together with enjoying the marketing of my cottage. Buying and selling a home is one of the most stressful and personal experiences and throughout the whole process, Rhys gave me the confidence that he was 'the man for the job'. From listing to the actual auction, Rhys talked me through the whole process, and even the auctioneer for the auction day rounded off a successful selling of my cottage. Rhys kept me fully informed throughout the whole month what interest was being shown, potential buyers and all the activity during each open home. He made sure the cottage was presented in a great way along with even lighting the fire when I was not available. Best Regards Bernadette Eva and I have bought and sold around 3 houses each, both here in NZ and in the UK. When we selected our Real Estate representative, we interviewed 3 agents before deciding to go with Rhys Vidgen. He won our business because of his pleasant, respectful manner, knowledge of real estate process and protocol and enthusiasm to do a good job for us. His marketing strategy was straight forward and honest and we felt that that would be how he would deal with us and our potential purchasers. He has certainly met and exceeded our expectations. Always punctual, polite, consistently following through with queries from us and buyers. Keeping us up to date with progress - not just hit reports, but responses from our conditional purchaser, who did eventually come through with a solid sale. When the market was slow before Christmas, we really appreciated his acceptance of our views and not pushing for a marketing strategy that we were not comfortable with. We would certainly recommend Harcourts, Rhys (and lately Sara) to our family and friends for all of the above reasons - not just the cake and wine, although that was much appreciated too! I almost forgot to mention the quality of the sale boards and promotional material. We were very happy with the standard of these. Again, clear user friendly and accessible, which is what you want when you are trying to reach a wide audience. Thank you Rhys and the team for making a potentially fraught and burdensome process as hassle free as possible. Keep up the good work! Best regards, Anne and Eva Morning Rhys, I want to sincerely thank you for your professionalism and assistance received this week with my impending move to Dunedin from Australia. I am very grateful for your knowledge, expertise, honesty about the market place, but most of all you told me the truth about real estate purchases here in Dunedin and surrounds. You were open, friendly and engaging. You were only one of two real estate agents that handed me the new Zealand Residential Property Sale and Purchase Agreements Guide and the only one to give me the Real Estate Agents Act (Professional Conduct and Client Care Rules 2009) this speaks volumes to me. I have seen all real estate firms in this town with the exception of one. As an Australian, and a woman, I have found a very misogynistic attitude with businesses I have dealt with here in Dunedin, and as such I have been dismissed by some organizations. Fortunately this outdated attitude wasn't found at Harcourts and especially with you - thank you!! Believe me it's was a breath of fresh air to finally meet you, after doing the rounds of real estate agents, let me tell you that your organization stands at the top of the tree, poles apart from some I have dealt with during my time here. I look forward to our continuing professional relationship. Kind regards, Jules
