Testimonials

"Maria was outstanding!  Professional, supportive and caring.  On first meeting Maria we were impressed with her honesty, integrity and ability to communicate effectively. We did meet with other high-profile agents but Maria's skills and talent shone through.  She quickly understood our needs and was at all times sensitive to these.  An absolute delight to work with, Maria kept us informed at all times and responded efficiently to any questions from potential purchasers.  We cannot speak highly enough of Maria and would have no hesitation in using or recommending her outstanding expertise."

Lyn Atkinson and Barry Rich

"After the successful sale of our investment property in Rangiora, we are delighted to recommend to any future clients the services of Maria and Milly.

Their open manner and commitment to getting a successful sale (especially as there were some tricky circumstances with the property) was outstanding.

A delight to do business with."

A & L Earl, Rangiora

"From initial listing our house was on the market for a bit over 13 months.  Remember the year was 2020 and our property was in a rural township.  Through the whole process Maria was always positive and working with us."

 

Susan and John Collins

"I can’t think of any improvement which could be made in the future."

Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you so much for all your work with the sale of Double Corner Road - I've really enjoyed working with you on this - tricky as it was. You made things really easy at our end, much appreciated. Rachael

We were luckily enough to have Maria as an agent when we bought and sold our properties in Amberley. Her professional yet friendly manner makes the buying and selling process so easy, even during covid 19 she kept us updated with any new information for settling our house. We would definitely use Maria in the future.

Paul and Anneka

Jack and I would like to let PGG Wrightson know how amazing Maria was with us when we were working with her to purchase 500 Mt Brown Road, Broomfield. With having Maria sell my Mothers property two years earlier it was great to be working with Maria again. Right from the start nothing was a problem, as with my Mothers property – I could ring Maria anytime to make a time to meet with her or just ask questions. If Maria was going to be away or I had rung her and she was tied up in a meeting etc, she would always text to let me know that she would make contact as soon as possible. You can tell Maria is very passionate about what she does, how she presents herself, and is a very caring and honest person. Jack and I would deal with Maria anytime and would recommend Maria to anyone as we have already done so.

Jack and Catherine Burrows

We found Maria to be a very pleasant, polite and knowledgeable agent. During the many times we met with her - regarding the sale of our property - she was always up to date and aware of the marketing situation. Any inquiries that she received were handled with expertise and politeness. She successfully achieved a very satisfactory sale for us.

Margaret and Edward Orr

When selling our property at 12 Teviotview Place, Amberley, we had considered one of several high-profile agents to put it on their listing. At about the same time we purchased another house listed by local agent Maria Rickerby. Barbara and myself were most impressed by Maria’s professionalism, attitude, attention to detail combined with a very pleasant manner and decided to market our home with her also appreciating that her local knowledge was of a great asset. The end result was an early sale at a good market price. We would have no hesitation in recommending Maria as an agent if considering selling your property.

Barbara & Neil

We would like to thank Milly Henderson and Maria Rickerby for selling our house. Right from the Appraisal through to hand over they were very friendly and helpful. We would recommend them to others. Cheers Avis & Ag.

Avis & Ag

Maria sold our lifestyle property at Balcairn in the winter of 2018. We were first time sellers and can honestly say it felt effortless under Maria’s guidance. Maria was professional, answered enquiries promptly, was mindful when determining marketing cost investment and its likely return, giving us what we believe was very sound advice. Throughout the entire process she maintained her pleasant disposition and quiet humour. Maria’s management of potential buyers appeared efficient and respectful. We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Maria as a sales agent for your property. She has a practical, straight forward and honest approach to her profession that from what we have experienced, garners good results.

Tim George and Janey Phipps

When we decided to sell our home, we were not looking forward to the daunting task of listing privately and the huge workload that comes with that. It had been six years since we last sold a home with Maria Rickerby from PGG Wrightson and the decision to relist with her rather than sift through the many agents & agencies in this market, was an easy one. One reason we partnered with her again was that we trusted she would work hard to represent us professionally and positively, believing this would transfer in her dealings with interested clients. We took her advice when it came to advertising methods, open homes and vendor viewings as we knew Maria came with much experience and knowledge of timing and what people look for when it comes to buying a home. As a result, we sold in a very short time. The best part was knowing Maria approached our much-loved home and the sale of it with respect & care. We would list again with Maria without hesitation.

Maria Rickerby was recommended to us by a local friend when we decided to move from our lifestyle property near Amberley. We found Maria to be open, honest, down to earth and approachable, but we were also impressed with her knowledge of the market, and her skills as a salesperson and negotiator as she guided us through the process. She was totally unflappable, which helped to make the whole experience go smoothly and with minimum stress. We had no hesitation in contacting her again recently when an older family member decided to sell her home and move to a retirement village. Maria’s advice and marketing was again spot on and we achieved the quick sale and smooth process that we’d been hoping for. Maria is a great person to deal with and we thoroughly recommend her to anyone who is even just thinking of selling, or is looking for that next property.

Tony & Gillian Trewinnard

We recently had the pleasure of working with Maria Rickerby in both a selling and purchasing capacity and were very pleased with every aspect of the service she provided. She's friendly and professional and her knowledge of the Amberley market is extensive. We'd have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone looking to sell their home.
