What my clients say

Rodger was the salesperson for my house. He exhibited to my wife and I, a great work ethic and a great personality. He also demonstrated what going the extra mile is by helping me procure my new property in the South Island going beyond what I would consider his paid job. The whole thing was overwhelming for us but Rodger  was always their for us every step of the way reassuring us and helping us get through it. In my humble opinion, this man is up there with the best salespeople in New Zealand.

Jon & Maxine 

I first became acquainted with Rodger McIntosh through his associate Jasjeet Ahuja at Glendene Barfoot & Thompson. Several months previously Jasjeet had knocked on my door, asking if I was interested in selling my house. I was then just starting to seriously think about doing so, so I took his card and kept it.

When, a few months later, I decided to sell, I contacted Jasjeet and arranged for him to call. He and Rodger duly came, on a Thursday morning. So did another pair of estate salespeople, from a rival company, who had cold-called me a few weeks earlier. Both pairs had a tour of the house and said that they would come back to me with definite proposals. Rodger and Jasjeet duly returned, in person, the following morning (Friday), with not only a verbal proposal, but also a quite detailed written proposal. They got the commission on the spot on the strength of that.

The other pair did not get back to me until the following Monday, with a phone call. Too little, too late.

Rodger’s attention to detailed showed itself when he came with a drone and its operator to take publicity photos of the property. At the time, two new houses were being built on the adjacent, identically sized, property, in addition to the two already there. Rodger told the drone operator to ensure that the aerial photos showed enough of this building activity to show my property’s development potential. This aspect featured prominently in the sales publicity.

The property included a large house. Unfortunately, this needed much work to be done to it. So Rodger emphasised the development potential of the site, not the house. In fact, the first item on the list of features was ‘Bring your bulldozer’. Rodger thus turned a negative into a positive. With an appropriate touch of humour.

Both the speed with which the property sold and the price it fetched reflected the effectiveness of this approach.

About two years previously, Rodger had sold the house of a friend of mine. My friend was very happy with the price got for his house, and still remembers Rodger fondly. Rodger’s success with the sale of my property was clearly not a lucky fluke, a one-off, but just one episode in an ongoing successful process.

I was selling to move into a retirement village. Rodger went out of his way to help me clarify some matters involving that.

All-in-all, I found Rodger enthusiastic and diligent in his approach, and, above all, very effective. I have no hesitation in recommending Rodger to anyone selling a house

John Mihaljevic

Rodger is a great guy and a fantastic salesperson. Professional and reliable, knowledgeable, experienced and easy to talk to.

What I admired most is Rodger showed respect and patience with my elderly father, and although he dealt mostly with me, he always explained and chatted to Dad ensuring he understood all that was going on with the sale of his home.

Highly recommend Rodger and the team at Barfoot & Thompson Glendene.

Kind Regards

Sue Grimmer & Dave Webber

Just wanted to thank you for the outstanding job you did in the selling of our property. From the initial meeting on the 2nd September to the fall of the hammer on the 22nd September, your expertise in the promotion and marketing of our property were key factors in such a speedy sale.

We'd have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends and look forward to working with you again.

Kindest Regards

Kevin & Vicki Blomfield

Rodger. I want to thank you for the outstanding professional service you delivered for us when selling my family home of 60 years after my father's passing. We really appreciated how honest you were and the realistic advice over what the property was worth. I think it is highly commendable to you, when our lawyer stated to me what an amazing salesperson you were and she should know. She deals with a lot of salespeople. To anyone reading this testimonial, do not hesitate to utilise Rodger's services. Even just to ring him for a chat. He certainly knows his stuff.

Graham Denly

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.

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.

Amira & Mike Pearson

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.

Lauren Burnett

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.
