Testimonials

Dave and Karen were so quick and efficient.  They provided awesome follow up info and sold my orchards to suit my very tight time line, even in Covid Level 4.

Lynette

"Dave and Karen did an tremendous job for us selling our residential property. They handled our sale efficiently, professionally and supported us with proficient advice throughout. Their appraisal accurately predicted our sale price which was very impressive. They made themselves highly available and were very responsive toward us and prospective buyers. We highly recommend their services."

Danielle

"When we were looking for a Kiwifruit block, we contacted all of the Rural Real Estate Agencies in the area as properties came up. Over the course of time David and Karen McLaren from PGG Wrightson showed us several properties. What stood out about David and Karen from other agents was that they listened to our brief carefully and really understood what we were looking for. They didn’t waste our time showing us stuff that was totally unsuitable or trying to convince us that a pig’s ear was a silk purse. They know the industry well and are kiwifruit growers themselves. At no time did we feel we were getting the SALES pitch. They always did what they said they would do and followed up on a regular basis as new properties came to the market. They are honest and responsible, and I would have no hesitation recommending them. Unfortunately, we did not buy from David and Karen as we bought outside of their area but would definitely use them as preferred agents again should we be looking at future investments."
