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.
Easy to deal with, addressed all queries. Excellent knowledge. Felt listened to and considered. No pressure. Honest agents, best I've dealt with.
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.
I first met Rob as a colleague several years ago and knew he was a salesperson who acted with the highest professionalism and integrity. When I was asked to help my elderly cousin sell her home of many years and to move her into a retirement home I knew Rob would be the best person to use.
Rob treated everyone with patience and respect, even in difficult situations. He kept us fully informed daily and had great attention to detail. He handled every part of the process flawlessly and the result was exceptional.
He has the highest standards of professional competence and we unreservedly recommend him as a highly professional and effective real estate agent.
Just over three weeks ago my husband Nick and I went to an open home at 742 South Titirangi Rd, Titirangi. We were greeted by a warm and friendly real estate agent named Rob who gave us the space we needed to look at the property but was also there to answer any questions and gave great advice on the home, enough that we made an offer on the house a week later.
Unfortunately we missed out on this property but we gained an amazing agent to sell our home which today has gone unconditional after only 10 days of being on the market.
From day one Rob has made us feel valued, respected, informed and has always been completely transparent on the process and what to expect. He has spared nothing, has gone the extra mile (literally) and has always been there for us no matter what time of the day. Rob knew exactly the best marketing plan for our home and put our needs first. It is important to note that many agents are more invested in making money by upselling fancy packages than actually listening to their vendors. Rob couldn’t be further from this.
After only two open homes Rob came to us with 7 great offers, one we accepted on the spot. We know that Rob would have spent hours with these buyers which is why we were handed a life-changing opportunity to sell at a price we didn’t think was possible.
We are incredibly thankful that Rob came into our lives and will not sell with any other agent in the future. He is a credit to your organisation and I hope is valued by your team.

We attended our neighbour’s open home, conducted by Rob, and were instantly taken by his calm, friendly and impeccably professional demeanor. So when we ourselves were ready to place our home on the market, there was no hesitation in immediately asking Rob (amongst others), to make an appraisal. We chose Rob to sell our property. It was a great decision. From start to (very successful) conclusion, he kept us fully informed, and most importantly kept it all on an even keel. Basically he guided us efficiently, encouragingly, and best of all honestly, during what can be, a roller-coaster of a ride. And in the end, the whole experience was a bit of a breeze really. Well, mostly for us at least. We achieved a great result. Rob is an impressive force in realty. Professionally impeccable. Impeccably professional!

Putting your trust in people is never an easy decision, especially when it comes to your most important asset, your home. We chose Rob because we were impressed by his professional and ethical approach. With our input he built a strategy and marketing plan tailored not only to our home, but to us too. We were kept very well informed and there were no surprises…other than a fantastic end result! You’re a credit to your industry.

After recently just finishing a renovation, I wanted to put the property on the market as quickly and smoothly as possible. Rob ran a professional, concise and appropriate marketing campaign that attracted a lot of people to the open homes but more importantly buyers to the auction. Throughout the campaign he kept me well informed and we achieved a great sale price under the hammer on auction day. You couldn’t ask for much more. I recommend Rob to all and I’m sure he will work as hard and as professional for you as he did for us.
I have been an investor in real estate over the past twenty five years. In that time I have come into contact with many real estate agents. In my experience when listing a property for sale often much is promised by agents and sadly often the promises made are all too often hollow. Recently I had a property I wanted to sell. Whilst it had some admirable selling points it also had some drawbacks! Compounded with the fact I was selling in perhaps the most challenging market we have experienced in real estate in all the time I have been involved with property. I met with several groups of agents keen to sell the property and among them was Robert. He impressed me as being competent, positive yet realistic. Once I agreed to give him the listing, he went to work. He helped organise the staging of the house plus a home handy man to do some obvious repair work. All this made my role as a Vendor a lot easier. The advertising campaign was appropriate to the style of the property and I felt I had good value for money spent.
When it came to negotiations with several offers I had the strong belief that Robert was working for me and my best interests and not just to get a sale. His dogged determination, professionalism and persistence impressed me. (I am not given to being easily impressed.) I would happily recommend Robert to anyone who is looking for an agent who actually delivers more than they promise and does so with absolute integrity at all times.
Thank you so much for all your hard work over the past month. We had a good feeling after our initial meeting and believe you ran an outstanding program - not to mention enjoying working with you. We appreciate all you did to make the process effortless, given that life is a bit chaotic for us at the moment. You impressed us from start to finish and we are absolutely thrilled with the result! We will certainly be recommending you to our friends and we hope that we will work with you again in the future.
