"We recently brought our first home through Andrea Cockburn and Paul Blackler. Andrea was fantastic to deal with and the communication was excellent. Nothing was a trouble for Andrea and she informed us of every step along the way. It was a really great first home buying experience. We love our new home!!!"

Andrea was a delight to deal with in the purchase of our home. She was easy to get along with, accommodated our requests and answered our questions. She was honest and nothing was a problem. We would throughly recommend her. .

I have known and worked within the same industry as Andrea over the last 20 years, during this time Andrea has proven herself as a highly successful sales person who is warm, bubbly, incredibly enthusiastic and always professional. If you are looking for a highly motivated, driven person then you can't look past Andrea.

Andrea was always attentive to our needs, not only in fixing problems if they arose but she thought ahead to what may be important for us in the future. She goes about her work in a great manner and communicates well.

I worked with Andrea in Nelson and found her to be a straight up sort of person. She was honest in her opinions and applied herself to her job. I would not hesitate to recommend Andrea and I have seen her be successful since our common working area and this confirms my initial faith in her.
I have known Andrea for a number of years and more recently when I was the South Island Sales Manager of Spark Digital. There are many qualities I admire in Andrea, not the least of which is her selfless willingness to help others. I witnessed this first hand in the many times she assisted my team. Andrea is also a passionate driven person and committed to the task at hand. Other words I would use in my description of Andrea is goal driven, determined and focused. A great team member and one of those people that helps build a strong culture in any business she works in. I would not hesitate to be a referee for Andrea.
-David Ferkatovich - Relationship Manager CodeBlue
We have purchased two homes from Andrea Cockburn and found the entire process painless and professional. From start to finish we could discuss any aspect of the sale with her and she was a fair negotiator. If I was selling or buying in Christchurch I would not hesitate to use Andrea's services.
