At the time of writing this reference for Linda and Rob, my house is currently on the market, with a conditional offer on it that is due to go unconditional in 8 days, and other interested parties are still coming to view the property.
A year or two ago, I was thinking about selling my house in Matakana, but not knowing any real estate agents in the area, a friend of mine suggested that I talk to Linda Smith from Premium Real Estate. I had a brief telephone conversation with Linda at the time, but it wasn’t until early this year, that I made the decision to sell and organised a meeting with Linda and Rob.
From the first meeting I had with them, I knew that I would be in the right hands. Not only had they just sold 2 properties in my street, but talking to them, I could see they knew the local market very well and they both had good ideas about the best way to promote my property.
I am not new to selling property and have worked with many agents over the last 20 years, but from the start, Linda and Rob made sure the whole process, from putting together the marketing, choosing the right method of sale (for my unique property), managing the Open Homes and viewings was stress free. They are highly professional in the way they run their business together as a team, know their market and jobs very well, and at the same time, are easy going and very approachable people to deal with, which makes working with them a pleasure.
In just a few weeks, Linda and Rob had negotiated some good offers on my house, which was a brilliant result.
I can highly recommend Linda and Rob as agents that you would choose to sell your property and if I am ever in the position again, I would not hesitate to call them up.

Great result, would definitely recommend.
From our first meeting and right through to settlement, Linda and Rob were easy to work with, were happy to follow our instructions and did a very professional job. We are happy to recommend their services to anybody buying or selling and would definitely use this highly competent and friendly team again. Thanks Linda and Rob.

Professional and calm Linda and Rob worked well together for our property in Matakana. They were patient, professional, and reassuring during unprecedented times. At all times Linda and Rob kept us informed, their communication was excellent. Nothing was ever an issue. Thank you Linda and Rob.

My wife and I listed with Robert and Linda during late 2021 and we couldn’t be more happy with their honest manor in dealing with the sale of our Algies Bay property.
Communication has been excellent and a successful result was reached within the 3 week campaign.
I highly recommend Robert and Linda to anyone looking for great service and good results.

Graham Lance
Linda was fantastic. Informative, punctual, and wonderfully responsive and helped me through both the buy (and sell!) process and achieved a very good result on both occasions. She has a wonderful grasp of the key value drivers of property in the Matakana area and provided excellent data when asked. I would recommend her highly.

Dear Linda,
Grant and I are so grateful, huge gratitude to you for your excellent professionalism and executing the easiest sale of our home that we could have ever thought possible. Much love to you always,

Debs and Grant
Linda sold our home at Takatu Road. Her energy and expertise was exceptional. During the 8 weeks our property was on the market Linda had 5-6 viewings a week, which were always followed by a call from her. Linda worked hard and presented us with multiple offers. We found her helpful and professional at all times.

Bruce & Elva Lewis
I am so pleased to have chosen Linda to sell my property in Matakana.
I was always kept up to date , with regular communication from Linda.
This gave me peace of mind, knowing my property was in the best hands.
Within a few months, I received the settlement on my property .
I highly recommend the efficient service of Linda and the Premium team.

You have done a superb job - lightyears ahead of any other agent we have ever used for our properties.

Linda is a very professional, personable and fully committed agent who exceeded all of my expectations in achieving a very fast sale along with a fantastic price. I could not be happier with the outcome and recommend Linda without hesitation.

Richard Mihaljevich
We got to know Linda as a member of Premium Real Estate office at Matakana during the marketing and successful sale of our home in Sandspit. From the outset Linda was direct and friendly. During the period our home was on the market Linda introduced the property to a large number of potential buyers. At times we had 2 or 3 viewings a week until a successful sale was achieved. Following every viewing Linda phoned or texted a report good or not so good! Linda never got discouraged and kept on promoting our home and keeping us positive.

During the final negotiations we were kept up with the process and Linda made sure we were comfortable with every step.

We have no hesitation in endorsing Linda as a Real Estate Agent. We wish her every success in her career.

Helen and Ian Smith
Linda was the Sales Agent when I sold my property in Matakana last year.

The land was a premium property, a working farm, with riparian rites, extensive estuary and sea views, with a modern architecturally designed house by Andrew Paterson.

Linda kept good communication between prospective buyers and with me. In the time it took to sell the property we got to know Linda well, She showed initiative and was positive, following through all the Sale leads and the outcome was a good sale where both seller and buyer were happy.

I recommend Linda as a good trustworthy Sales Agent.

Judith Larsen
I have known and dealt with Linda Smith of premium real estate since march of 2018.

Since then i have been both buyer and a seller of two valuable properties in the Brick Bay and Matakana areas.

I found that she always both acted and communicated in a timely and professional manner so there was never any doubt in my mind as to where things were at.

She also marketed both properties properly to the satisfaction of both parties. I have no hesitation in recommending Linda as an astute and effective real estate sales person.

Roger Burrill
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your efforts on the sale of our property at 19 Martin road Matakana.

You have kept us informed every step of the way and answered any of our questions with honesty.

We have enjoyed working with you and wish you well in the future with real estate.

Many thanks again.

My wife and I marketed our home at 3B Tamahunga Drive, Matakana with Jim and Linda through August/October 2018. I had known Jim professionally for probably 30 years and that contact was the reason we chose Premium in the first place as I considered his experience and knowledge of the vagaries of the residential property market to be without peer. We first met Linda in June 2018 when we entered into an agency agreement and were immediately impressed with her energy and efficiency.

The marketing programme was extensive and thorough and 1 believe our property had the maximum exposure we could have hoped for-the photography was outstanding and the whole presentation was immaculate. We had a series of open home viewings which Linda largely ran; like clockwork I must say and she made what can be quite a challenging process extremely easy on us.

Looking back I believe our property was well received in the market place and there was an encouraging level of interest. However I also believe that at about that time, September/October 2018, the market was turning; evidence was properties were starting to take longer to sell and the resultant softening in prices was looming. With this backdrop Jim and Linda secured an offer around mid-October that was unconditional but had a few issues around price, chattels and settlement date.

These issues were overcome and by the end of October we had an unconditional contract; in no small part to the tenacity Jim and Linda showed and the sage advice they proffered us when the sale looked as though it may founder.

I can highly recommend Jim and Linda as a team to run with; their understanding of the market place is second to none and our experience was that they do hang in there when the going might seem to be getting a little tough.
