“Shane and Lynda were excellent to work with. I always had a strong belief they were working their hardest, and smartest, for me, the vendor. I always understood they were being absolutely honest with me and were also informing the purchasers of every detail about my property.

Both Shane and Lynda were open to my suggestions about marketing the property while also bring a wide range of ideas from their experience in the business.” – Tony

“Thank you for all your help. You have by far been the best agent we have had dealings with, and we are sure you will be a big success.
Some things that stood out for us were:
1. Your attempt to get back to us even tho’ the recorded message was unclear.
2. Having a number of good sites to show us when we came up to Waipu.
3. Not badgering us too much on getting things signed off.
Thank you once again.

“I would have no hesitation in recommending your company for prospective land/house buyers. We were impressed with the professionalism shown by both Dianne & Lynda and the amount of pre-work they must have done to show myself initially the various options available to me to suit my budget requirements ultimately led to bringing in another party and selling two instead of one section. It was a delight the amount of help and patience shown during the offer, acceptance and sale process. It was a pleasure doing business with yourselves. A true professional team.” (Contact chooses to remain anonymous)
“Further to the below, I can confirm that using Good Ground and having yourself and Dianne working with me to sell my property was one of the best decisions we could have made. Your response time from my first enquiry was significantly above all other real estate agents I contacted, and I was delighted that everything you confirmed would happen did actually take place. I was confident that I would be kept informed of progress and changes as they took place and was impressed with the level of contact I received. I was especially happy with the speed at which the property sold. It was a very quick turn around to get the property listed, for people to be looking through and for us then to review the offers coming in. You both went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that both my interests as the seller and the purchaser were looked after at all times. I can say without any hesitation that if I needed to sell or buy a property in the area again, I wouldn’t consider using any other real estate company and would contact Good Ground instantly.” (Contact chooses to remain anonymous)
