I just want to thank you so much and acknowledge how much you did for me regarding the sale of my property. I truly appreciate the way you managed the whole situation, your calm manner, and the respect you showed me. Thank you for listening to me and following through on discussions during a difficult time. I will never forget what you did and how professional you were throughout. I wish you all the best and once again – thank you

Patricia & Ian

We have recently sold our property - our agent John Leith was so hands on with the whole procedure - he profiled our home in detail and included photos which marketed the property extremely well. John was always available to answer any questions and provided a weekly update to inform us of any interest in the property. We were delighted when he sold our home within a few weeks of it being listed, and we would sincerely recommend John to any person wishing to achieve a sale or purchase of property in Central Otago.
