It is sometimes better to act as if you don't know much but then ask the hard questions when you have to. You don't know what you don't know as the adage says.

We have used phil joyce from harcourts papanui twice and we found him fantastic.

Trent or Caroline at Harcourts in Clyde Road are brilliant!

Get advice from a conveyancing lawyer, rather than a real estate agent.

I have found Heather Chick from Harcourts New Brighton to be very helpful a couple of times when I've purchased

Real estate agents work for the vendor, not you as the purchaser - don't forget that.

just me but i would be as a first home buyer not to buy i this market

Gone are the days when a real estate agent will drive a prospective purchaser around in the hope of finding them a suitable property.Nowadays it is up to the individual to look at property listings on web-sites; in the newspapers and in the real estate magazines and visit as many open homes as possible and find a suitable property for themselves.But as has been mentioned, a lawyer is the best person to talk to if you find a suitable property.Let your lawyer look through any agreement before you sign it.Good real estate agents put their energies into selling their houses for their clients, the vendors.They can only give a prospective purchaser information they know abouta property.They don't act for the purchaser too.Never forget that.

Lorraine Sheard from Harcourts, St Albans and Denise Linnell from Ray White were both very good to me and if I needed transport to/from a property (I don't drive) they tried their best to help me get there.

Bollocks, there are plenty of hardworking salespeople who will be happy to take you around available listings.

lis-nick, Nov 21, 2:27am
OOh, I wouldn't use Heather Chick again, she came across as a fronter, and was a bit condescending. Not what you want when buying your first home.

We used Joe Rosevear.Rosevear Wing and Associates. He is seriously a nice genuine guy. http://www.realestate.co.nz/offices/10081/agents/10102

cough cough - and whats wrong with being a fronta!
but on a more serious note, yes there are plenty of salespeople out there who will help a buyer and listen to what they want. Good luck poster 1 and remember to get at least a builders inspection if not an engineers report clause put into your offer.,

Dave Adams at Harcourts seems pretty good. We've looked at a few houses he was selling (ended up buying a different one though) but at the time he told us he had a "buyers agent" or something like that who would be happy to help us.

aphra1, Nov 21, 5:38am
Yeah,right.

bca4, Nov 21, 6:05am
i second Vicki Tahau Paton AWESOME PERSON to deal with :):):)

An estate agent isn't going to help you with a private sale. There's no commission in it for them. However a lawyer will be a lot of help. Go talk to Duncan Terris, he's very experienced, talks to customers in the appropriate manner, and when we used him 5 years ago was very competitively priced (something like $500 + GST + expenses, which were minimal).
