Having bought and sold 11 properties over the past 30 years, without doubt Raewyn Smits is the best agent I have had on board to help me get a sale over the line, total professional with no BS..
Raewyn and Phil worked tirelessly for us to achieve a sale. Their efforts never faded even after we had a conditional offer. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. Thanks for your efforts!

We really enjoyed Raewyn & Andrew working with us to sell our house. They worked incredibly hard, provided good advice, and were relentlessly positive! They achieved a sale in a difficult market, for which we were very grateful. Now that we have sold and moved, we miss their humour!!!

We met Andrew first at an open home in Keridale Road, we liked his manner and approach so asked Andrew to come and appraise our property. Andrew came and brought Raewyn with him and once again we immediately warmed to her. It was important to us to find agents we could relate to and had confidence that they would do the best possible job for us. This they have done guiding us through the sales process. We would not hesitate in recommending either Raewyn or Andrew individually or together to anyone looking for great agents to buy or sell for them.

Raewyn sold our house for us. We were so pleased with the professionalism and support we received from the whole team and Raewyn and Andrew in particular. From our first meeting , there was a clear plan and explanation of what the process would entail for us. There was no pressure or smooth talking, just a thorough discussion in plain terms. Once we had decided to commit to selling our home, we were provided with a detailed ‘plan of attack’. This included a timeline showing photographer visits, when we would go to market, open homes and our auction date. The fee schedule was attached and Raewyn advised us on what we should focus on when getting our home ready for sale. The entire process was organized and efficient. We always felt included and that we knew exactly what was happening.
Raewyn and Andrew used visits, phone calls and texts to keep us up to date. This was invaluable as we were both working full time during the sale of our home and were able to check voicemails and texts at opportune times during our day. The offers and auction process itself was managed beautifully. I was initially very hesitant about the auction process, but would highly recommend it. Raewyn is a pro and the entire team made it a positive and exciting time for us. We cannot recommend Raewyn and Andrew highly enough, and look forward to dealing with them again in the future.

Raewyn is worth her weight in gold, I highly recommend. She sold my house for more than I expected and much faster than I ever anticipate. Communication was great and she helped me understand all my options. 11 out of 10 she was awesome.
After 6 months with another real estate agency and no luck, we decided to go with Raewyn and Andrew. Best decision we ever made! They explained to us the strategy that they thought would work best for us, which was to take the property to auction. They were supportive and excellent communicators through the whole process and we felt confident being guided by them. The result they managed to get for us exceeded all our expectations with the property selling at auction within 6 weeks and for a price that was well beyond the price point that the other agency had us listed at. We cannot recommend them highly enough!

I recently employed Raewyn to sell my home. Raewyn was very helpful through all aspects of the sale process/ I found her to be very reliable and always happy to go the extra mile which meant no sleepless nights for me! The price Raewyn told me I should get for my home was the exact price I got. Raewyn also sold me the same house four years prior. It was a very easy transaction with her help and the reason I contacted her again when I was ready to sell it. I would recommend her to anybody anytime.
We decided our property would go to Auction on advice from Raewyn & Andrew Smits. They both worked very hard on our behalf up to the Auction. In fact it’s noticeable that they each have their own marketing strengths which compliment each others’ so make an excellent team. Whilst the property didn’t sell at the Auction, it was sold shortly afterwards to a bidder on the day.
We both want to thank them for the effort they put in to achieve a sale for us and would recommend them to anyone.

We have always believed in responding to good service with any company or person we deal with and we wanted to express our thoughts to you both and your company today. The process of selling a home is stressful on many levels so dealing with salespeople who understand this and work towards reducing stress makes the whole process easier on many fronts. Duncan and I have appreciated your easy and calm manner and the experience and knowledge you have of the real estate business which has provided us with information on which to make informed decisions.
Our selling experience with you both has been positive and for us rewarding. With a sale prior to the Auction date and fewer open homes suited us, so, we have been able to settle on the purchase of our new build well within the timeframe to complete. We wish you every success for the future.

When we first decided to move to Kerikeri, Raewyn sold us our property. We found this transaction so easy with Raewyn’s professional and easy approach. We started thinking about moving homes to Hawkes Bay, so we contacted Raewyn to come and do an appraisal. There was absolutely no pressure and when we were ready we contacted Raewyn to come and list our property for sale. The service we received from Raewyn and her team Andrew and Terri was outstanding. As a result of this Raewyn negotiated a sale price we were happy with. We cannot recommend Raewyn highly enough. With her calm manner, professionalism and knowledge Raewyn and her team offer excellent service.
Mike & Margaret Kilkenny
We recently had the pleasure of both selling and purchasing property with the help and guidance of Raewyn and Andrew. We cannot recommend them highly enough. From the very first viewing to the swift acceptance of our offer Raewyn and Andrew couldn’t have been more helpful. And when we needed to sell our house to secure the home of our dreams they pulled out all the stops and had our house sold in under 3 weeks. Nothing was too much trouble, no question left unanswered. Even after we had moved into our new home Raewyn was still there to smooth out remaining wrinkles, and to check we were settled. Hopefully we will never be moving again, but if we did Raewyn and Andrew would be our go to agents.

Deciding when to sell our “retiring fund” rental property was a bit of a challenge. Deciding who should sell it was easy. I have always been interested in property and had seen Raewyn at a few open homes. I appreciated her relaxed manner and no sales clichés, but still left the open home wanting to buy the house. Raewyn and her team are professional and efficient. Our property was photographed and ready for marketing within days, and sold in just over three months. We felt the team was working for us and their communication guided us through the process. A great experience!
