What Chris's Clients Say

Chris’ expertise in the valuation of my house was precise and enabled me to meet the market with a realistic price that was honest and 100% accurate. He kept me informed throughout the whole process and achieved a sale within two weeks of the house being listed. I found Chris to be completely professional. He made me feel like I was being really looked after, even to the extent of finding me a beautiful new house within a week. He really made it so easy for me and I would recommend him to anyone who wants fast, efficient service that really does get results!

We would just like to say how wonderful Chris and the whole team have been to us, in both selling and repurchasing a new property. We have found them to be very honest, reliable and happy to help at any time, day or night. Nothing was ever too much trouble. They are a great team and highly professional at doing what they do best.

We have appreciated your integrity, honesty and professionalism, as well as the amazing commitment of your team in the process of selling of our house. We will definitely be recommending your services to our friends.

Chris Gemmell is indeed the country’s premier agent, in our opinion. He patiently and generously gave his time to sort through our laborious code of compliance process to finalise a great offer and settlement that worked for everyone. He did this while dealing with an obstructive tenant, a demanding purchaser, and vendors who were busy and distracted executives. Chris’s greatest strength – outside of his sheer tenacity – was always being able to find the stakeholders’ middle ground and gently negotiate us all to a stellar ending. We will happily and confidently refer Chris to anyone seeking a committed and talented professional to manage their home sale or purchase.

I have been meaning to email you and keep forgetting but I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for all your help selling 45 James Evans Drive. Your service was impeccable and we were both really glad we chose Lochores and most importantly yourself to sell our home. The result was truly amazing.

We are this week going unconditional on a beautiful home in Rangiora that we are very excited to move into in 4 weeks from Friday and couldn’t have done it without your help at the other end.

Thanks for everything you have done for Mum. She has felt very well cared for and was impressed with your handling of the auction. The result was amazing and this will mean Mum can comfortably live till she’s 100!! She can now move on to the next stage in her life with no financial worries.

We initially came into contact with Chris Gemmell when we bought our first property 10 years ago.  As first time buyers, we were so impressed with his approach that when it came to selling our other property in 2015, we immediately thought of Chris.  His subsequent handling of the sale gave us such confidence that when we eventually put our first property on the market, where we had initially met him, it was with Chris.  By this stage we were living in South Island and part from one face to face meeting, all our dealings were done remotely.  Nothing was too much trouble for thim; we were grateful for his help and advice, and delighted with both his approach and the result (not to mention the competitive fee structure!).

We would highley recommend Chris Gemmell and Lochore’s Real Estate for the selling of your home!  We have just been amazed at their excellent service.  Our friends guided us to them and also came with us just to enquire re selling and the time we spent with them, we left signed up.  We had so much confidence in Chris Gemmell with his friendliness, honesty, guidance and presentation.  The speed of marketing our home was beyond our imagination and the photos and writeup blew us away! The whole team couldn’t do enough for us and kept in touch at every opportunity.  When we had a buyer, the buyers had to sell there home and Chris was on the ball again.  The two homes were sold and we were so delighted and became a real friend of Chris.  Congratulations to the whole team.  We couldn’t be happier with their service.  Thank you so much.

We would like to express how much we appreciated the efforts Chris and his team put into selling our apartment. We especially appreciated the extra’s, eg: the fantastic advertising and spending time with those buyers who came and viewed the property several times. Those little extras meant a great deal to us.

Your respect for our goals with selling our property and getting us what we wanted out of this, along with your fantastic communication skills made this sale easy, flawless and stressfree. We felt that the quality of service and the presentation of our property couldn’t be bettered by another real estate company or agent and would definitely use Chris and his team again.

Never an inconvenience always felt well looked after. We will definitely recommend any further business be directed your way.
