“Once in a while you come across a Real Estate agent who is diligent, hard-working trustworthy and effective. I have had the pleasure of dealing with such an individual on two separate transactions and he exceeded my expectations on both occasions. This agent is Peter Tanner of Bayleys in Ponsonby and I unreservedly recommend him to you. Peter is also very in tune with the market. His knowledge and experience is evident in all aspects of buying and selling real estate. He is realistic, frank, open and honest. I couldn’t think of a better combination. It has been a winning formula for me. He is an absolute pleasure to work with.”

" From the first meeting through to the sale of our house Peter kept us fully informed of the process and what was going on. We couldn't have been happier with the result that Peter got for us - a good offer after the first weekend of open homes resulted in the auction brought forward to sale price that exceeded all expectations."

 “Thanks for a fantastic job in selling our home in Burwood Crescent Remuera. Rebecca and I appreciated your professional approach to the marketing and presentation to buyers. There are a lot of promises made with real estate marketing but you delivered on yours. Selling a house can often be stressful for the owners, however your calm manner and focused approach made the experience almost enjoyable! We would not hesitate in recommending you to potential Vendors”

"I have used Peter Tanner of Bayleys Real Estate for the past three years. During all this time I have found Peter to be extremely reliable, approachable, efficient and hugely knowledgeable about our business. For a medium sized company such as ourselves the personal relationship with Peter is paramount; as we grow we can feel confident that Peter can interpret our business needs and will guide us when necessary with a professionalism second to none. Peter services extend well beyond simply selling our properties. He has become a pivotal part of our marketing team and plays an important role in the success of our companies. A good Real Estate agent should be a long term relationship for client and business, and I look forward to many more years working with Peter."

"After living in Herne Bay for the last 12 years it was time for us to have a lifestyle change. This change involved selling our lovely home in Hamilton Road. We used Peter and Robyn to sell our last home in Marine Parade so it seemed only fair to invite them to pitch for our business again. We went through a process of talking to real estate people who we believed could get us the best results in selling our home, Peter and Robyn shone out above their competition. We were not disappointed in our decision. These guys are an amazing team and after selling my real estate business after 28 years I knew the good from the bad. Peter and Robyn left no stone unturned. Always arriving at least 20 minutes before our open homes were due to start to make sure lights were on candles lit etc. and were always happy to stay after the allocated time with late arrivals to show them through without fuss. The communication from them to us was outstanding as was their follow up of people who had been through our home. We always felt in control and always felt fully up to date and in tune with what the market was saying in relation to our house. Auction day came and a perfect auction ensued with multiple bidding achieving us a price we were and are to this day extremely happy with. We can personally and strongly recommend Peter and Robyn to market any price range of property in and around the Herne Bay market place. Their amazing knowledge of what is selling and what has sold is second to none which enables them to give honest and reliable feedback from day one. If you are in the market to sell or buy these amazing people will do the job."

"Thanks for a fantastic job in selling our home in St Mary’s Bay. Wendy and I appreciated your professional approach to the marketing and presentation to buyers. It was also nice to receive timely communication throughout the whole process. Selling a house can be stressful for the owners, however your manner and approach made the experience almost enjoyable!"

“We made the right decision in going with Robyn and Peter to sell a rental property of ours in Grey Lynn. We thought it wasn’t going to be an “easy sale" given the house was a do-up, part of the house was non-consented, and the house was tenanted (with tenants who were disappointed at the prospect of having to leave). However, due to Robyn’s relaxed, friendly, professional approach together with Peter’s technical and legal expertise the sale process turned out to be smooth and easy, and a result was achieved that far exceeded our expectations. After discussion with Robyn we decided to sell the property by auction. Shortly after the second open home Robyn presented us with a pre-auction offer we accepted. The auction was brought forward. The property was sold. Easy. We’ll engage Robyn and Peter to sell our next property. You’re a great team guys. We look forward to the next bottle of Moet!”

"I recently have sold two of my properties using Bayleys Agents Robyn Clark & Peter Tanner. My property at Sunny Brae Crescent in Westmere was in a 3 week auction campaign and although not selling in the auction room sold shortly after. Through the campaign Robyn & Peter worked hard at getting me the result I wanted, kept me fully informed and together they have a calm and professional manner. After having been through the process of selling in Westmere I appointed the services of Robyn & Peter again to sell my property  in St Marys Bay.  I didn’t want to go through the open home process due to personal circumstances. I discussed this with Robyn and respecting my thoughts she bought me an offer within the week of listing my property and it was sold……..  Couldn’t be happier! I am now currently looking to buy another property and have enlisted Robyn to help with the process. I find her to be completely honest, she understands my brief and makes the process easier for me especially when in a very competitive market for both buying and selling. I can highly recommend Robyn Clark & Peter Tanner whether selling or buying a property."
