What some of my clients say about me:

We found Chris thoroughly professional in his dealings with us in respect of listing, marketing and finding the right buyer for our property. He gave us regular feedback from each open home and viewing so that we were kept well informed during the marketing process. He communicated well with our tenants at all times which for us was really important. We felt he was open and honest in the negotiation process and that he was aware of all parties’ expectations. This of course led to a positive outcome within the designated time frame. Above all, Chris made what could have been an extremely stressful experience, very manageable on all accounts.

Mack and Noeline, Whangarei


We met Chris at an open home and were so impressed with his honest and genuine advice that a few months later we listed our house with Chris. He kept us informed with professional, efficient weekly reports, and nothing was too much trouble – we could contact him at any time and he would answer all our concerns and queries. We would have no hesitation in recommending Chris to any potential seller or buyer.

Gus and Mary, Whangarei


We cannot thank Chris enough for his tireless work to get our property sold within a very short timeframe, so that we could achieve our ultimate goal to go unconditional on another property he was also marketing. Chris’ pleasant and friendly nature made him very easy to deal with and we would have no hesitation in recommending his services to any potential property seller.

Jamie and Kim, Whangarei


We have recently had Chris acting for us in the selling of our property. In all of our experience in the property area, selling or buying, both here and in the United Kingdom, this has been the most positive of all. Chris is a genuine person. He offered us good advice, made valuable suggestions and prompted us when necessary. He was very proactive in the process of selling our property and the communication between Chris and us was very positive. We would have no reservation in recommending Chris to people who wish to sell their property.

Peter and Barbara


We would like to thank Chris Findlay at Bayleys for selling our house. The whole process was very easy. He respected our requests of appointment only, no marketing or open homes. He knew we didn’t want “tyre kickers” viewing our house and he only bought clients through who he knew were looking for a home like ours. Sold to the second clients in just three weeks!! We highly recommend Chris if you are looking for an honest and caring person to sell your home.

Ron & Nicole


My wife and I have bought and sold many properties over the years. This agent tops the list! We do not rate 10 out of 10 lightly but Chris qualifies... and some! In 50 years playing the property market, Chris is the best agent we have ever experienced.

Tony & Carolyn


From the moment we arrived at the site prior to the Open Home, we found Chris to be personable, warm and welcoming. He gave us space to explore the property and provided us with all the answers and information we needed with openness and honesty. Throughout the process of negotiation, Chris was clear, honest and direct and he kept us well informed at all times. We felt in very good hands during the entire transaction. His assistance was above and beyond the call of duty and we very much appreciated it. We would have no hesitation buying or selling a property through Chris again.

Michael & Hilary


On behalf of my brother and sister, I would like to thank you, Chris, for marketing our property. It was a very quick and easy sale, being sold under the hammer at Auction. My family and I all felt you had our best intentions in mind throughout the whole campaign, you were very professional and highly considerate, as you know it is not always easy selling a family home. We ended up getting an excellent price and I believe that is because of your large database and excellent people skills. We are very please we chose you, Chris, and would have no hesitation what so ever to recommend you to a potential Vendor or Purchaser.

We listed our house with Chris and found him outstanding in all aspects of the selling process - from the first conversations, to the initial proposal and then on to the marketing and sale of our house. He was wonderful in assisting us with dealing with a deceased estate. Chris communicated with us often and kept us well informed throughout. Chris used his extensive database to bring several prospective buyers to view our house and within two weeks he sold our house for the asking price. He was truly awesome, we would use him again and recommend him to others.
