"It has been both a pleasure and a privilege to have had the expert services of Peter Melhop as our agent in the sale of our property. His considerable and expert experience has been brought to bear in marketing our property that was beset from the outset with a reputation as a "leaky home" from the building cladding nature used and the design anomalies that existed during the early 2000s. Despite this, he maintained and encouraged a positive approach on our part and impressed potential purchasers who witnessed, and were clearly impressed by his unfailing, honest professionalism. By his professionalism and honest and balanced advice he unfailingly encouraged potential purchasers to examine the positive aspects of a property that was presented in a condition that witnessed the care with which it had been maintained. Clearly it would not have been sold but for the trust he engendered in the eventual purchasers. Very well done and a huge thank you, Peter. Barfoot and Thompson can be justifiably proud of you."
- Keith & Margaret Hewlett
"We knew that I wanted to have Peter Melhop as our agent when I decided to sell our family home of 24 years. I had seen him sell a friend's home in such a professional manor and knew him to be a warm, honest and a caring person. Although I am new to selling, I knew that Peter's fine reputation in the local area was second to none and I would be in good hands. I undoubtedly made the right choice. When I called Peter to say I was thinking of selling, he immediately understood that selling the home that had built for our family was emotional for me. Throughout the process of deciding how best to approach selling a property quite unique to the area, he was there to support me and give sound advice. Peter's knowledge of the local area, his hard work and expertise in marketing, provided me with excellent exposure resulting in significant interest. In addition to the three weekends of open homes there were numerous visits to the property from other Barfoot and Thompson agents who inspected with their buyers. In a short space of time the property was sold and I couldn't be more delighted with the outcome. Peter has been great to deal with and been purely professional in his guidance which I found to be spot on. I thoroughly recommend Peter as the right choice for anyone wishing to sell their property for the best price in the least stressful way possible."

"Dear Peter, I wanted to pass on my sincere thanks and appreciation, on behalf of my family, for the wonderful job that you performed for us in marketing and selling my mother's house. Right from our initial meeting I felt we were in the best of hands and every step along the way reinforced that view strongly. You have a wonderful rapport and an easy and open communication style which left me feeling part of the process all the way through. Without a second though, I would recommend you to any person that is looking for an honest and hard working real estate agent to sell their property who will get the job done in a timely manner. (in our case 3 weeks) You are very talented and for this, we are very grateful."
- Brad Templeton
"We chose Peter as our agent, simply because he does the hard yards, it was always a hi or chit chat when passing by mail dropping his regular newsletters. Peter is highly respected on the peninsula, not only for his sales ability, dedication and honoring his words. He is always upbeat and enthusiastic when speaking with us. Peter was always around when we needed him and his sincere nature and willingness to accept any challenge brought our respect and trust. We would not hesitate in recommending Peter to anyone wanting to sell or buy a property."
- Peter & Pauline Cutts
"I have bought and sold several houses, both in NZ and elsewhere, but this one has been the most difficult. Unfortunately I hit on a bad time to sell, with many places on the market at my price, and first home finance tight. I had thought to abandon the idea, but my tenacious agent, Peter Melhop just would not give up! His devotion to his profession and his experience carried me through open homes, meticulous follow-ups and attention to detail and have won through. In the process he has become a friend and I have learned to admire his professionalism and talent with dealing with people and the sometimes frustrating situations we have encountered, I would thoroughly recommend Peter to anyone who is thinking about selling their home."
- Christine Curtis
"Selling your beloved home is never the easiest of times but Peter soon put our minds at rest and sold our house in less than two weeks from the second Open Home he conducted. After meeting Peter for the first time, it was clear to us that he knew exactly what he was doing as he went to work explaining the best way to market our house successfully. What impressed us the most, was the way he provided regular and clear communication from start to finish, was always available when we wanted him, pleasant, patient and always mindful of our thoughts and opinions. Having purchased and sold properties in the past, it was a delightful and refreshing experience dealing with Peter and his positive energy. We would, without any hesitation, recommend Peter to any home owner that is thinking about selling their home and wanting a well-polished professional agent who is in tune with the local property market here on the Hibiscus Coast."
- Maria & Les Mita
"We had confidence in Peter Melhop from the moment he came to appraise our home. He was very efficient and professional in actioning a marketing plan and kept us informed with regular updates. Peter has a very good knowledge of the industry and the Hibiscus Coast area. Even after our property sold he kept in touch showing an interest in our next move out of Auckland. We felt he was genuinely committed to helping us and would highly recommend Peter to anyone looking to sell or buy in the area."
- Philip & Heather Edmonds
"Peter was recommended to me to assist with the sale of my Uncles property who had passed away two months earlier. Upon meeting Peter, it was apparent he was experienced in his field and advised which method would work best for selling the property and what would be entailed. It was decided we would sell by Auction, and Peter kept me in the loop with who had come through the property each week, had open homes both Saturday and Sunday plus other private viewings. The campaign was highly successful due to his strong work ethic plus he was honest and reliable and I could always contact him day or night if I had any concerns. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Peter to family, friends or even strangers to assist with the selling of their property as he made the whole process stress free, so thanks very much Peter for helping us get an amazing result on my dear Uncles deceased estate. You're a legend!"
