Before you dive into the real estate market you could do with some practical advice from an experienced broker. If you are thinking of buying renting or selling property in the Lake Rotorua region speak to Norman Donald from 2LAKES HOLIDAY RENTALS
"Norman Donald of 2 Lakes Holiday Rentals handled the sale of my property at Lake Tarawera. He was appointed as a General Agent and was successful in finding us the buyer that we needed. The buyer had visited other open homes that Norman had run earlier in the year, and due to the good follow up procedures from his database of potential buyers Norman contacted this purchaser. They were at the point of buying another property on Spencer Road, but Norman convinced them that our property better suited their requirements. At all times during the period of the agency I found Norman's personal service to be exemplary. He conducted open homes when and as required and his follow up and weekly reporting of website hits and so on was excellent. Because he lives in the area he was able to access people who were visiting and I am certain this contributed to his success with this and other properties he has sold. During the negotiations Norman worked tirelessly until he had put the deal together. I would have no hesitation in recommending Norman to anyone looking for a local on the spot agent to sell their property. Because of his low overheads, Norman's costs for doing the job are considerably less than some of his competitors.".
"We purchased a house in late 2010 at Lake Tarawera with Norman Donald acting as agent for the vendors. Initially we looked at properties in January and couldn’t find what we were looking for. Norman continued to stay in touch with us and through his tireless endeavours and multiple conversations he located exactly what we were looking for. We have now lived in the house for six months or so and are very happy with the property. We found Norman to be very professional in all aspects of the transaction and easy to deal with. He had a good knowledge of the property and the relevant market factors at the time and was responsive in regards to any queries we made. I would have no hesitation in recommending Norman to any prospective vendor and would enlist his services if we decided to take our property to market.".
"We found Norman Donald an excellent agent to work with, his relaxed 'no pressure' style was complemented by his honesty and knowledge about the house we were looking at (and subsequently bought) and of the general Lake Tarawera market as well. With Norman living locally it also made our initial contact very quick and easy and viewing of the property was never a problem. Norman is an agent we would happily use again." ..
