Sincerely appreciated the effort and hard work Rodger exhibited in helping us with the purchase of the property. Found his professionalism and straight-up style smoothed the process greatly. This was not a straightforward property purchase due to much additional information being requested by our lawyer before we could go unconditional. These requests for extra information were always provided quickly and without any fuss or bother by Rodger. Nothing was too difficult for him to deal efficiently with. We are so pleased with Rodgers service we have already commissioned him to source our next purchase.Kieran Trass
Good friendly service from Sandy and Rodger who marketed our house and also from Anita who eventually made the sale. All were professional to deal with. For all three staff that we dealt with from the Glendene office we received professional and friendly service. Firstly from Sandy and Rodger who did the marketing and handled the auction and then Anita who made the eventual sale, all communicated well and made good suggestions that helped the sale and were great to deal with. Also appreciated the box of goodies that were received after the sale.Vendor Tirimoana Rd
This is to commend the handling of our property at the above address by two Barfoot & Thompson real estate agents (Glendene branch). Both agents, namely Rodger McIntosh and Sandy Fenton, dealt in a highly professional manner, leading up to the sale and after. All effort and follow-up was done competently with one hour put in on the Saturday and Sunday for open homes. We would be very happy and willing to recommend the above named for future ventures.Glenys & Lindsay Smith
Rodger did a wonderful job of selling our house, providing an excellent service throughout the process. He gave us an honest and accurate appraisal of the value of our property in the current market and advised us how to enhance it, including giving very practical advice and assistance - even going as far as helping us clean up the property and providing an excellent fence cleaning product!
Rodger's promotion of the property was first class with well positioned, attractive advertising and frequent open homes. He kept us informed of progress throughout the period our house was on the market and worked long hours negotiating a good offer for us. Even after we had a conditional offer on the house Rodger continued to work for us, securing a back-up offer a few days later (for the same price) in case the original offer fell over. We would thoroughly recommend Rodger McIntosh as an honest, approachable and professional agent.
When we first met, I had been bereaved 8 months, and was not in a place where I was able to manage anything, businesswise, although I knew the time was right for me to sell and try to start moving on. My daughter and son-in-law were handling all my business for me, and dealing with issues I was incapable of managing. The house was in a trust, so that also had to be negotiated. Catherine and John spoke to a number of agents , from several agencies, and chose Rodger, after careful consideration.
From our first joint meeting, Rodger has been at all times professional , and handled things in a timely and courteous manner. In addition, he was empathetic to my situation, explained things carefully and clearly to me, returned calls and texts promptly, and was encouraging as I got the house ready for sale, which turned out to be extremely cathartic.
The advertising was excellent. Rodger's photographer was professional and particular, and the results showed. Rodger, we feel, did an amazing job, advertising the property, and the results showed very quickly. My house sold within a few weeks.
On reflection, one of the most important things for me was that I was always made well aware of the REASONABLE value of the property, and exactly what would enhance it for sale purposes. Even though I was vulnerable, and somewhat fragile through the process, Rodger treated me as an adult, with respect and humour. He liaised between my family, the solicitors, and me with ease. It made a difficult situation much more manageable.
I would recommend Rodger to anyone selling, for his communication skills, his attention to details, and his professionalism.
Rodger provided an excellent service. He made a real effort to help us get our house ready for sale as quickly as possible and then did everything possible to get us the best price.
As we live overseas it was a relief to have someone whom we trust to take care of all the details and he made sure to keep us updated by phone and email regularly.
I hope that that works for you, if you need it to be longer or more detailed please let me know.
Rodger McIntosh is a standout real estate agent for a whole raft of reasons. First, he instantly impresses with his honest, straightforward, unreserved manner. Secondly, he follows through with impressive, energetic efforts to answer all queries, and shows remarkable patience, even with an English-second-language buyer. Thirdly, he provides solid dignified support during the auction process. Fourthly, he even follows up to ensure that you are very happy with the state of the property before settlement.
