    Keryn Hislop

    Sales Consultant

    Keryn and her family moved to Kerikeri 12 years ago after serving our country, both here and overseas as a Corporal in the RNZAF and in the NZ Police. Keryn started her career in Real Estate as our property manager in January 2011 and has a comprehensive knowledge of the rental/investment market in Kerikeri. After having completed her Real Estate Sales Certificate, Keryn moved into sales. Buying and selling homes can be a stressful time and her consultative approach helps to alleviate this stress, working with both clients and customers to achieve their property dreams. ‘Employing the right agent to sell your home is one of the most important decisions you can make. My consultative real estate approach achieves great results. If you need an agent who will work hard for you, listen to you and show the upmost of professionalism, call me to assist you in achieving the outcome you are looking for.’ Call Keryn today for a confidential, no obligation appraisal of your property on 027 407 0004 Testimonial: James and I cannot express enough how much we appreciate everything you have done to get us to this point. We held our breath until today and until hearing that the settlement had gone through. We were frightened that maybe, just maybe, the settlement might fall through but to hear everything progressed without a hitch has given us a sense of relief! Thank you Keryn, for your time, support, understanding and diligence. James & Tania Testimonial: We really appreciate how you helped us over the purchase of Charlotte Kemp, all our questions were answered promptly and our concerns addressed with equal speed. Your advice proved reliable and you are very good at balancing the needs of vendor and purchaser. You have a lovely attitude to your purchasers and it was a pleasure working with you. The fact we sought your input for the ongoing purchase of a second property is testimony to the regard in which we hold you. Dennis & Sally Testimonial: During 2013/2014 we both purchased land and sold a home through Keryn. Why did we go back to her? Because she was brilliant! The land that we wanted to purchase had many barriers in both our decision to purchase and coming to an agreement with the vendor. Keryn worked tirelessly for us over this time, going the extra mile by spending hours doing research, going to the council, speaking to perspective builders, all to get us what we wanted for what would have been a pittance of commission. Though this time Keryn always remained professional but was able to develop a good humored relationship with us as her clients. We trusted her, so when a job promotion meant that we needed to move only a few weeks after moving into our lovely new home we went straight back to Keryn. She moved at great speed to get the house listed and advertised, knowing that we needed a speedy sale. This came one week after the listing! Keryn then supported us via phone and email with advice when purchasing our new home in the North Waikato. Aaron & Alison

I have known Ross for many years, and found him to be honest and direct, a person who does what he says he will do. He was the obvious choice to manage our property. Ross does the industry proud by providing excellent service every day to his clients, not just as an exception. He also understands that property management is more than rented houses; it is taking are of people’s investments and dreams……. Ross is a fair man for both the tenant and landlord while at the same time not standing for any nonsense, making sure everything will get done…… Ross goes the extra mile and is very good to deal with. I would thoroughly recommend Ross to other landlords. Ross is well known for the excellent, reliable service he gives.

Ross has been absolutely fantastic to deal with and now my hassles are virtually nil! Owning a rental property can become a stressful way to invest for your retirement. Dealing with tenants and tenancy issues, finding potential tenants and showing them the premises can all be time consuming and inconvenient. Having a property manager means that all of these irritations can be avoided…. Ross has managed our rental portfolio for many years and has proved to be excellent in all areas of property management………..
