I am pleased to recommend Richard Dow to anyone who expects high standards from their real estate agent. Richard worked diligently on our behalf, and made us feel that our house sale negotiations were also his priority. We knew he was under a degree of time pressure, yet he dealt with this calmly and professionally in our favour. In a cautious market environment where people were in no hurry to commit, Richard presented us with three very fine offers within the first week of listing the property. With two of the three potential buyers overseas, Richard had to manage a huge amount of negotiating and communication into some limited windows of opportunity due to time zone differences. While each offer met our expectations comfortably, we were obviously very happy with the most suitable offer and duly accepted it. Richard is very competent and professional in his approach, and his personable manner made it very easy to have frank discussion with him. Over the years we have been both buyers and sellers on a number of occasions, and had dealings with many agents. Richard Dow is without doubt the skilful businessperson other agents aspire to be. Thank you Richard.

We have now had the pleasure of having Richard Dow sell two of our homes in Peka Peka. In both cases he demonstrated a professionalism that is second to none. Richard has a keen eye for valuing a property accurately, framing the advertisements, and handling all aspects of the actual sale. Perhaps his greatest skill is in the considerate, appropriate way he interacts with both sellers and buyers. Our only regret is that our next house sale will be in Taranaki and Richard Dow won’t be able to sell it for us when we’re ready.
Frances and Rick
Thank you for your courtesy, professionalism and constant contact at all stages during the period when you were representing us over Mannson Lane. It has been a pleasure to meet you and we are grateful for all you have done for us. We value the relationship that developed and are thankful that we had someone with your personal attributes looking after our interests.

We selected Richard from several other agents as we felt comfortable with his sales and marketing approach, his professionalism, and his integrity.
The whole process, from initial engagement, planning the marketing campaign, running the open homes, handling the initial offer, negotiating the terms and conditions, and the final settlement were professionally handled. Of all the houses that we have sold in the last 25 years, this was the least stressful of them all, and that is a testament to the way Richard handled the whole process.
Richard kept us informed every step of the way and was a pleasure to deal with throughout the process.
Consequently, we have no hesitation in recommending Richard to anyone whose intention is to sell their house with minimal stress.
