Tina is a lovely person. Very helpful during the entire process especially as we are both new to the real estate process in NZ.  Arranged for us to see the house as many times as we wanted. Tina behaved in a courteous and professional manner at all times.   

K & N Bishop

Tina promised me a 'happy ending' as I'd previously had 2 unsatisfactory experiences with estate agents.  It took a while due to the current market but I got my happy ending!  Tina is impressively hard working and professional at every stage of the process.  I personally think it's a bonus to have an agent who effectively moves between chinese and english speaking buyers.  

K Parker

Gillian is very approachable and friendly. She guided us through our first sale with patience. Gillian is extremely knowledgable and answered all questions we had throughout the process. All communication with Gillian and her great assistant Sarah was punctual and clear. Thanks to the whole First National Team!  

A Grogan & N Corke

We chose Gillianto be our Real Estate Agent as she demonstrated an energy and passion for selling properties. Gillian had an affinity and deep understanding of the housing market in our suburb, and the type of home we were selling. Her knowledge and advice were invaluable. First National Real Estate Rutherford also provided excellent service and support.  

​K & G Howells

Gillian's performance was professional, reliable, knowledgable & super efficient. Gillian & her team were a pleasure to deal with, all enquiries were promptly dealt with & we couldn't have asked for anything more than what we received. This First National Team were the very best I have ever dealt with and I have been buying & selling many houses over the years.
