Testimonials: "We have known Kath D Cruickshank for 10 years as she has very successfully managed rental property for us in Queenstown. The time came to sell our old houses, and naturally we looked to Kath to act as our real estate agent. She has been very patient and understanding throughout our lengthy negotiations which were due to serious health problems of our family. The completion of a successful sale was accomplished this week with both parties happy due to Kath’s very good knowledge of people and their requirements." Noel & Patricia “We have used Kath many many times, this was our first auction and Kath and her team were so fabulous to deal with I wouldn’t even consider going anywhere else.” Maxine "Kath had an efficient and friendly, yet professional approach to selling our home, which has made for a quick and stress-free sale. We would fully recommend Kath to anyone wishing to sell their home." John & Dorothy "Kath Cruikshank is simply brilliant! She understands the market and has an immense amount of local knowledge. She knows what is necessary to present the property and has all the contacts to make it happen. Kath is down to earth, reliable and tells it as it is. She knew the market trends and identified the key areas needed to sell the house. She organised everything for me and sold my Goldfields Heights property for a great price. My decision to appoint her as the agent for the property was simple. She sold the property to me and had managed the rental for a number of years. During this time I found Kath to be an ethical and honest person and I would highly recommend her." John “You helped us with the sale of our Bob's Cove property and did such a good job we looked you up when it was time to sell another property - this one in Frankton. Your advice was spot on and just shows that local knowledge is really valuable in any market. You helped us get above our asking price and had 2 unconditional buyers within 5 days and that was way beyond expectations. I knew you are and have been the local expert on Frankton real estate and have your finger firmly on the pulse of all of the Wakitipu but especially in Frankton. You also assisted us in the purchase of another property near Remarkable's Park and once again you put together a sale that both the vendor and ourselves were very happy with. As usual you worked hard for both parties to make sure everyone was pleased. What else can I say? Only that if we ever want to buy or sell again in Frankton you will be the agent we would use. We also consider you a dear friend now as well.” Jim & Ros “Kath I just wanted to thank you for selling my property in Frankton a couple of weeks ago and for helping me buy a new property just blocks away from my old house. I was told that you were the local real estate guru for the Frankton area and now I know it's true. I guess having been a local for so many years has given you the true knowledge of the area and the trends of the market and prices. Anyway thanks so much for making everything so easy and for all your extra work in getting 2 deals put together in such a short time, a sale and a purchase in 3 weeks!” Michael “Kath Cruickshank has recently sold our property for us, of which we were very pleased. We found Kath honest, up front and responded to any of our requests in a very timely manner. The service we found to be well above what was required, and would certainly not hesitate to use her again or recommend her to anyone else.” Scott & Gabrielle “We have known Kath Cruickshank since 2006 when we purchased a property in Frankton. When we decided to sell it was done in a friendly professional manner and sold very quickly. Kath is a kind friendly person who is very honest, therefore we would have no hesitation in recommending her in any real estate matters in the Queenstown and Lake District.” Paul & Wendy “I used Kath Cruickshank to sell my rental property in Frankton. I could have used any agent in Queenstown, but I knew Kath would be the right person to go to. I am living in Melbourne now, and Kath made it so stress free for me. My property sold within ten days. Kath is very professional, experienced, honest, and reliable.” Murray “Kath was an absolute pleasure to deal with and professional in how she managed our house sales. Once we made the decision to sell Kath took care of everything. With her friendly, kind and helpful way she was prepared to work very hard for us and we appreciated the support. Kath made us feel like we were her top priority, always available and kept us informed throughout the sale. That personal touch ensured us we were in good hands throughout the process.” Annemarie
