CLIENTS have this to say:
I highly recommend John Carpenter as a Real Estate Agent and as a person. I wanted someone I could trust to sell my house and of course the best price possible. John was upfront and honest all the way through the process. He demonstrated his integrity and knowledge whenever we dealt with him. At the end of the process we had more than 10 great offers and the sale price exceeded our greatest expectations. John is a sales professional and I wouldn’t look any further if you are selling your house.

Using John carpenter to sell our house was the best decision. We were building a new house and dealing with our new baby and 4th child having heart bypass surgery at the time, and were living in the house while it was being sold. John was amazing. He is calm, a clear communicator, and fully understood our situation. He made everything work with minimal interruption to our family life, and sold the house in record time. We thoroughly recommend him without hesitation.

I can only provide a glowing reference and I can't think of a thing you could improve on! I wish we could work with you all the time - which would mean selling and buying many houses. Thanks so much again John for everything you did. It was a pleasure working with you again.

John was recommended to us by our neighbor and at first, we were skeptical of dealing with a smaller Agency. However, we were proved wrong and we got tremendous enquiry through (a wide range of the digital platforms that they employed). John recommended a fast 2.5 week marketing schedule, which resulted in multiple offers and a premium sale price. During the marketing campaign, John was reliable, considerate and honest in his feedback of buyer enquiry. We have brought and sold many properties and working with John made this sale stress-free. We would definitely recommend John to all our friends and family.

"From the moment John met with us it was evident that he had an exceptional understanding of the local area and the current market. There was none of the usual hype and pitch and he was genuinely interested in understanding our needs and aspirations for selling our Wellington home.
John led us through the sale preparation process, helping us to easily navigate each step with key information links and document preparation that allowed us to feel in control of the process even though we were doing this while overseas. His honest and open communication with regular updates on progress was refreshing and kept us extremely well informed on all aspects of the sale. He also dealt sensitively with the long standing tenant and property manager working in partnership with them to ensure the marketing and access plan was the least disruptive and intrusive while at the same time ensuring our property was well presented to the market.
His commitment to presenting and selling our NZ home went above and beyond anything we have previously experienced. John coordinated the cleaning, minor repair, painting and built assessment on our behalf – there was nothing too difficult or left to chance. His attention to detail ensured the resulting sale met and exceeded our expectations.
We highly recommend John Carpenter and OneAgency – we are very happy and highly satisfied customers!

"When we decided to sell our home, we were referred to John by a friend who had used him to sell his own home recently. He had been impressed by John's exceptional ability, commitment and service. When we first met John, we were taken with his punctuality and consideration when entering our home. He had an easy-going and engaging manner that we instantly warmed to. He advised us on all the sales aspects that we could expect, and he produced a marketing schedule that we found invaluable. He followed this schedule, which allowed for a short and sharp campaign, to deliver full impact on the market, and produce the results that he was able to achieve for us. We were constantly kept informed at all times via email and phone during this campaign. He was a great support, and was always approachable with any queries or concerns we may have had.
John behaved in a professional manner at all times. He was dedicated, honest, knowledgeable, and showed great integrity. He was also compassionate and very respectful of us. He was focussed on achieving the very best result that he could for us, and his level of service was second to none. We appreciate all the hard work that he did to achieve such a wonderful result for us. We found the whole experience relaxed and stress free thanks to John. We would not hesitate to thoroughly recommend John for any real estate venture, to ensure a guaranteed great result.

"John brought enthusiasm to the table when he took on the sale of my house. I was genuinely pleased to find an agent who was excited about making the best of the property. He provided excellent and concise information about the market, and marketing strategy. His advice was spot on every time, and at no point was I short of a contact if I needed a cleaner or a building report. I was given regular updates on the sale, and his frequent communication made me realise how hard he was working. This paid huge dividends for me in the end sales price. John's patient, easy-going-but-professional manner makes him my first choice agent in Wellington. Kind regards Rodney McLachlan"
"John. Just a short and very sincere thank you for all the work you did on our behalf on the sale of our property in Karori. We really appreciated the dedication and hard work put in, including after hours, in particular the communications via email, text and phone calls, keeping us up to date with the market and interest shown in the property. We feel you went the extra mile and always cheerful. Thanks also for the coffees!! We would not hesitate to recommend your services to any potential client.
Very kind regards

"John was fantastic He arranged an assessment not only for our unit but also for similar units in the area. He assisted us to get a LIM report, a builder’s review of this 16-year-old structure, and a summary of Corporate Body rules, property management and expenses to reassure prospective purchasers. He arranged for landscaping, staging and advertising on all of the property websites and compelling brochures to show off the unit to best advantage. The whole process was made simple, and explained well as he took us through the steps. After thorough preparation, the sale went smoothly. Three open homes were well attended. He gave us good advice with offers to consider, and negotiated a great price without further conditions. Then he helped with information needed by our lawyers to close the deal. Every detail was attended to! We cannot recommend John highly enough to those who want an economic and thoroughly professional service. Glenys and Paul Silvester Henry Street, Kilbirnie"
"John Carpenter is a very friendly, honest and really genuine person who demonstrates incredible commitment and work ethic in all of his dealings – coupled with a great smile! As a vendor, I did my best in getting my home to a very presentable ‘for sale’ standard, which I wanted, and John sealed the deal after three exhausting weeks with a pleasantly unexpected and very impressive sale price. What I learnt from this experience by choosing ‘One Agency’ to sell my home is there was no compromising on the service they provided or the result they delivered. I made a great connection with John during this time and I now consider him to be a friend. The pleasure was all mine and I would not hesitate in recommending John and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

"Our family met John Carpenter at an Open Home that he was an agent for. We were impressed with his friendly manner and his not too pushy attitude. We liked his relaxed manner and the way that he presented this house for sale. So much so that we decided to approach him to sell our home. He sold our home in one month on the market.
My husband, my daughter, her partner, their two children and I acknowledge ONE AGENCY and particularly John Carpenter for the personalised care, advice and support we received. From the time that we approached John to advise us on the sale of our home through to the purchasing of our new home he assisted us through some of the unfamiliar issues that we encountered. Besides this he also ensured that our private home life was disrupted as little as possible.
John advised us on home presentation. Many of his suggestions we actioned. He produced a stunning booklet of photos of our home. This is now a part of our happy memories in that home. He walked us through each small step we needed to know about selling a home and even helped us by giving valued advice on the purchase of our new home.
John is a very good communicator always touching base with all matters such as Open Homes, interested purchasers, the local market and many, many more. His friendly and personal approach has endeared him to our entire family. We highly recommend John and ONE AGENCY if you are considering selling your home.

"John is a person who wears his values on his sleeve: honesty; transparency; integrity; and compassion (and unbeatable local real estate knowledge and sales experience). When you engage with John, he takes a vested and holistic interest in you as a person/family, and doesn't ever treat you like his next commission payment. We engaged John to sell our rental property for us (which was our first foray as real estate vendors). John was open and honest with about what the sales process would entail. He kept us regularly updated on all aspects of the sales process, and treated our existing tenants with courtesy which was very important to us. Furthermore, when our sales process encountered some unexpected complexities, John expertly dealt with it all for us, and, ultimately, successfully secured the final sale for us. Thank you John.

"I am taking the time to write this letter of recommendation for John Carpenter. I’m a property developer and have sold a number of properties using several different agents and agencies over the past twenty years. I can unequivocally say that I have never seen such attention to detail nor have I ever taken the time to write a reference as I am today. My reasoning for doing this is simple, I have never experienced this level of regular contact and updates throughout the entire process. Thanks John Carpenter for all your hard work. Keep it up John see you on the next one."
