Your honesty, reliability, self confidence makes us feel that we chose the best agent. You treated us with respect and you always kept your word and updated us with what was going on in the very challenging real estate industry. Thank you from both of us, and my wife and I will recommend you to all our friends 101%."- N & V Aguilar
"We would like to thank you for the exceptional service you provided when selling our home. Due to its location and layout, it was potentially a difficult property to represent effectively, but your constant monitoring of and ability to adjust the advertising, to match the correct buyer profiles meant there was a good stream of potential buyers through. This resulted in a sale at a price that exceeded our expectations and your assistance in advising the best way to negotiate our next purchase was well beyond the service we expected. Thank you so much Peter and we highly recommend you to any vendor looking to sell their home."- Chris & Annie Krageloh
"This is the second time I have used Peter to sell my property and he has always been so attentive and professional. Nothing has been too much trouble. He gives 150% in effort and expertise. Both sales proved difficult, at a time when sales were sluggish however Peter always remained positive and encouraging, never giving up. He has a very pleasant personality and always remained professional, and even followed up after the sale, to ensure everything went well. I would certainly recommend him, and consequently Barfoot & Thompson to anyone who needs to sell. As I am now in a retirement village, I will not be moving again, but appreciate Peter's fine efforts."- Chris Curtis
"I would like to acknowledge the time and careful attention that Peter Melhop paid to selling my home in what to me was a record three days from when it went on the market. Peter's planning began three weeks before that, and I was very impressed with the professionalism that he brought to the task. It always seemed as if I was the only vendor Peter was dealing with. All my questions were so easily dealt with. I have never seen anything better, and I have sold a number of houses during my life. Thank you for your dedication and commitment and I would not hesitate in recommending Peter to any vendor who is considering selling their property."- Janice Gill
"A true genius at work. We appointed the experience and knowledge of the well regarded Peter Melhop to represent our property and are so glad that we did. Peter worked timelessly, and through hard work and determination, achieved the result we expected and obtained for us a great sale price for our home. Peter is regarded as one of the best agents on the Hibiscus Coast and undoubtedly lives up to his fine reputation. Without hesitation, it would be our recommendation that you talk to Peter first, if you are looking at selling your home as he is extremely good at selling property. Thank you Peter for your fine efforts"- Marilyn & Lance Morrow
"Peter Melhop was my real estate agent whom I chose to sell my home. Peter proved very quickly to be absolutely invaluable, as being an older person on my own, I needed much advice and support. Peter was always a pleasure to deal with and extremely approachable and patient. Peter was always willing and prepared to go the extra mile, even arranging a contractor to attend to several repairs which were needed around my house. Peter was determined to get for me a good price for my property and I feel it was due to his willingness and bold efforts that the sale of my house was so successful. I would highly recommend Peter to anyone seeking a real estate agent who prides himself on his marksmanship of professionalism, outstanding market knowledge, work ethic and persistence in attaining a successful outcome. A one in a million agent you need to have on your side and representing the sale of your home. Thank you Peter."- Charles Creaton
"Simply remarkable, well prepared, friendly and outstanding would be the words I would use to describe Peter Melhop. A challenging property to sell without a doubt but Peter persevered and brought the results of which I had no doubt in my mind that he would. This is the second property of mine which Peter has sold and I am again very impressed with his service and level of commitment to get the job done. Peter's property knowledge of the Hibiscus Coast and his careful due diligence process is second-to-none. I recommend Peter Melhop as a first class agent to anyone wanting to sell their property on the Hibiscus Coast."- Barry Eade
"A friend of mine suggested that I give Peter Melhop a call re selling my property in Stanmore Bay. He said that Peter had fantastic knowledge of the Hibiscus Coast, was friendly, honest and reliable. (I must admit, that I didn't have a high option of real estate agents up until I asked Peter to give me an appraisal). Peter is professional, trustworthy and honest, who will understand your needs, give you all the information that is best for you and will make it fun at the same time - I really don't know how he does it. If you are lucky enough to get Peter in to appraise and sell your house, you won't be disappointed. Thanks very much Peter it was a real pleasure and you are indeed a true expert in your field."- Russell & Sarah Perkins
"I met Peter at the end of my driveway one afternoon as he was out delivering his Market updates. I told him that I had been meaning to contact him to discuss the sale of my property. Peter has an incredible knowledge about property which impressed me from day one and continued to do so throughout the entire sales process. Peter worked tirelessly on double open homes on Saturdays and Sundays which resulted in my house being sold within a few weeks. I would recommend Peter to anyone looking to sell their home - he has a wealth of knowledge, sage advice, is always professional, optimistic and has a very polite and appealing manner."- Sue Dixon
"Peter Melhop was my real estate agent when I recently sold my house. Peter proved to be absolutely invaluable, as being an older person (73 years of age) on my own, I needed much advice and support. Peter was always a pleasure to deal with and extremely approachable and patient and was prepared to go the extra mile I feel it was due to his efforts that the sale of my house was so successful. I would highly recommend Peter to anyone seeking a real estate agent who prides himself on his market knowledge, work ethic and persistence in attaining a successful outcome. A fine job you have done and thank you dearly."- Geraldine Harper

Not only did Peter clearly understand our requirements, he followed up on all of our concerns and sought clarification for each and everyone in a timely manner. During the selling process Peter maintained a friendly, yet professional disposition and great communication. I would say, if you want someone to work hard for the sale of your property, Peter is the man! We would recommend Peter to all our friends."- Samantha & Joel Penman
"What can we say, but be enormously thankful for all your hard work above and beyond making it a breeze in selling our home. Your dedication to the open homes and online presentation was extremely good which attracted the right purchaser to the property which we cannot compliment you enough for. Peter, you are a consummate professional, truthful, transparent, congenial, obliging, positive, enthusiastic and caring and it would in fact be more appropriate to state that you are in a league of your own as far as real estate agents are concerned."- Hans & Gaylene de Leeuw
"Peter's knowledge, marketing and professionalism clearly sets him aside from the rest. Peter's communication and negotiating skills helped us to achieve what we wanted in a short space of time, within budget and without the stress. From the moment we first met Peter, we knew we were going to get high quality service. Without a questionable doubt, Peter's service, attention to detail, dedication and commitment to achieving us a great result, is simply remarkable and we would recommend Peter to any person considering selling their property."- Tony & Susan Kilerman
"Thanks Peter for all the great work you have put into marketing our home. We chose Peter to market our home as each month we found a well informed flyer left in our mail box, a guy that has a great knowledge of the hibiscus coast property market. Within a couple of hours of our call, Peter was around with his Barfoot & Thompson box of valuable information and ran through all of our marketing options. With a smile and enthusiasm with no question we ever asked big or small ever being a problem for him, Peter was always willing to go out of his way no matter what time, day or night. Peter is an exceptional hard worker who blew us away with his total dedication to meeting our satisfaction and offering world class service and professionalism to a T. As far as Peace of Mind goes, Peter nailed it! In addition to all of this, Peter also assisted us in putting in the 'Extra hours and hard work' to negotiate and purchasing another property for us (in Taupa) and for this, we are truly grateful and extremely appreciative. Thank you so much Peter for your outstanding ability that ended in a great sale for us. "Awesome job" We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Peter to anyone who is wanting to sell or purchase a property."- Keith & Lyn Simon
"Recently I have listed and sold my house through Peter Melhop from Barfoot & Thompson. I found Peter's help and support throughout the entire process invaluable and always felt very comfortable in his approach, knowledge and sincerity. Peter was always very patient, professional and on-hand almost around the clock to answer any questions I had. In the weeks after the sale Peter has also been available to offer advice and after sale support as I am considering purchasing another property. Peter has backed up what he said he would do in the sale of my property and the following result was 'SOLD'. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Peter to anyone who was contemplating selling their property."- Udo Lembach
"Whangaparaoa Barfoot & Thompson agent Peter Melhop helped me sell my house over the depth of winter in which I am delighted with the service I have received. He also helped me to make an offer on a suitable new property. Peter has been thoroughly professional / knowledgeable and friendly on every contact, thank you for your confidence in the property and also your expert knowledge resulting in a great sale. I am delighted that I chose Peter Melhop of Barfoot & Thompson and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional, trusting and reliable estate agent in the area. Peter is well connected and brought through many potential buyers to both the Open Homes and to private viewings. You have definitely worked hard to get my property sold and for this, I am truly grateful. I would also like to thank Barfoot & Thompson in general for their friendly agents and their good communication skills."- Maureen Jansen
"It has been both a pleasure and a privilege to have had the expert services of Peter Melhop as our agent in the sale of our property. His considerable and expert experience has been brought to bear in marketing our property that was beset from the outset with a reputation as a "leaky home" from the building cladding nature used and the design anomalies that existed during the early 2000s. Despite this, he maintained and encouraged a positive approach on our part and impressed potential purchasers who witnessed, and were clearly impressed by his unfailing, honest professionalism. By his professionalism and honest and balanced advice he unfailingly encouraged potential purchasers to examine the positive aspects of a property that was presented in a condition that witnessed the care with which it had been maintained. Clearly it would not have been sold but for the trust he engendered in the eventual purchasers. Very well done and a huge thank you, Peter. Barfoot & Thompson can be justifiably proud of you."- Keith & Margaret Hewlett
"We knew that I wanted to have Peter Melhop as our agent when I decided to sell our family home of 24 years. I had seen him sell a friend's home in such a professional manor and knew him to be a warm, honest and a caring person. Although I am new to selling, I knew that Peter's fine reputation in the local area was second to none and I would be in good hands. I undoubtedly made the right choice. When I called Peter to say I was thinking of selling, he immediately understood that selling the home that had built for our family was emotional for me. Throughout the process of deciding how best to approach selling a property quite unique to the area, he was there to support me and give sound advice. Peter's knowledge of the local area, his hard work and expertise in marketing, provided me with excellent exposure resulting in significant interest. In addition to the three weekends of open homes there were numerous visits to the property from other Barfoot & Thompson agents who inspected with their buyers. In a short space of time the property was sold and I couldn't be more delighted with the outcome. Peter has been great to deal with and been purely professional in his guidance which I found to be spot on. I thoroughly recommend Peter as the right choice for anyone wishing to sell their property for the best price in the least stressful way possible."- Darren Campbell
"Dear Peter, I wanted to pass on my sincere thanks and appreciation, on behalf of my family, for the wonderful job that you performed for us in marketing and selling my mother's house. Right from our initial meeting I felt we were in the best of hands and every step along the way reinforced that view strongly. You have a wonderful rapport and an easy and open communication style which left me feeling part of the process all the way through. Without a second though, I would recommend you to any person that is looking for an honest and hard working real estate agent to sell their property who will get the job done in a timely manner. (in our case 3 weeks) You are very talented and for this, we are very grateful."- Brad Templeton
"We chose Peter as our agent, simply because he does the hard yards, it was always a hi or chit chat when passing by mail dropping his regular newsletters. Peter is highly respected on the peninsula, not only for his sales ability, dedication and honouring his words. He is always upbeat and enthusiastic when speaking with us. Peter was always around when we needed him and his sincere nature and willingness to accept any challenge brought our respect and trust. We would not hesitate in recommending Peter to anyone wanting to sell or buy a property."- Peter & Pauline Cutts
"I have bought and sold several houses, both in NZ and elsewhere, but this one has been the most difficult. Unfortunately I hit on a bad time to sell, with many places on the market at my price, and first home finance tight. I had thought to abandon the idea, but my tenacious agent, Peter Melhop just would not give up! His devotion to his profession and his experience carried me through open homes, meticulous follow-ups and attention to detail and have won through. In the process he has become a friend and I have learned to admire his professionalism and talent with dealing with people and the sometimes frustrating situations we have encountered, I would thoroughly recommend Peter to anyone who is thinking about selling their home."- Christine Curtis
"Selling your beloved home is never the easiest of times but Peter soon put our minds at rest and sold our house in less than two weeks from the second Open Home he conducted. After meeting Peter for the first time, it was clear to us that he knew exactly what he was doing as he went to work explaining the best way to market our house successfully. What impressed us the most, was the way he provided regular and clear communication from start to finish, was always available when we wanted him, pleasant, patient and always mindful of our thoughts and opinions. Having purchased and sold properties in the past, it was a delightful and refreshing experience dealing with Peter and his positive energy. We would, without any hesitation, recommend Peter to any home owner that is thinking about selling their home and wanting a well-polished professional agent who is in tune with the local property market here on the Hibiscus Coast."- Maria & Les Mita
"We had confidence in Peter Melhop from the moment he came to appraise our home. He was very efficient and professional in actioning a marketing plan and kept us informed with regular updates.

We felt he was genuinely committed to helping us and would highly recommend Peter to anyone looking to sell or buy in the area."- Philip & Heather Edmonds
"Peter was recommended to me to assist with the sale of my Uncles property who had passed away two months earlier. Upon meeting Peter, it was apparent he was experienced in his field and advised which method would work best for selling the property and what would be entailed. It was decided we would sell by Auction, and Peter kept me in the loop with who had come through the property each week, had open homes both Saturday and Sunday plus other private viewings. The campaign was highly successful due to his strong work ethic plus he was honest and reliable and I could always contact him day or night if I had any concerns. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Peter to family, friends or even strangers to assist with the selling of their property as he made the whole process stress free, so thanks very much Peter for helping us get an amazing result on my dear Uncle,s deceased estate. You're a legend!"- Niki Littlejohn
