Get to know me better

I have lived in Dunedin many years and trained as a Chef at Otago Polytechnic. I then worked throughout New Zealand and Australia in hotels and restaurants and had my own Catering Business and Wholesale Bakery Business.

I believe in working for the best resourced Real Estate Company and also because I am enthusiastic and have a tremendous zest in doing the tasks needed to achieve a sale for my vendor and to obtain a premium price. I have also developed real skills with people that have proved invaluable in liaising with prospective buyers.

I pride myself on offering fantastic service to all my clients and I’m always happy to work outside the 9–5 hours in a friendly and professional manner. You can be assured I will be committed from the start to ensure a smooth deal is achieved at the end for all parties. I am hard working, approachable, honest and trustworthy with a genuine desire to help.

The person who will provide you with the best service will always be the person with whom you feel most comfortable, the person in whom you feel most confident. You have to trust someone, sometime. Trust me and my proven record.

Recommended to us as one of the best real estate agents

This is to state that we have known Allan for approximately 3 months. He was recommended to us as one of the best real estate agents. We had a house for sale in Waitati. It was a lovely home but potentially not that easy to sell in today's difficult market, Allan set to work with great zest. He was happy to come out to Waitati any time and insisted on having 2 open homes every weekend. He kept us well informed about potentially interested buyers and was at all times very encouraging. He was very professional when dealing with us and he took our wishes into account.

When it came to negotiations we tended to take his advice and we very quickly learned that we could trust him totally. In the end the sale itself could well have fallen over had it it not been for Allan's diligence and hard work. All parties involved were happy with the final result.

We have been very happy with the service received from Allan and we can strongly recommend him as a real estate agent. We certainly would be happy to use his services again.

You represented your client very well

Many thanks for the 2 bottles of wine, which I found on my front door yesterday. It was indeed a pleasant surpise. Unfortunately, I was out at the time you popped by.

More generally, I would like to thank you for the very professional service that you performed in respect to our purchase of the house on 14 McMillan Street. You represented your client very well, and were equally professional in assisting us through the process. As first time house buyers, we really appreciate that. In any case, we wish you every success in your future business endeavours.

Do feel free to pop in a few months down the road, to see how everything is going!

Allan’s experience and track record was impressive

Selling the family home at 5 Picardy Street, Morning, from another city as 'loaded' with challenges.

I met agents from six agencies, each with a persuasive presentation. My immediate gut reactions afterwards was 'it would have to be Allan. However I also trawled through in from each, just to be sure, and reached the same conclusion.

Allan's experience and track record was impressive. Allan's communication was exceptional. He was personable, professional, hardworking and thorough. In my 86 year old mother's words 'always available... quick to respond... nothing was too much trouble'.

Our house sold sold in less than a month which was a huge relief and let us 'move on' with our lives. Would we choose Allan again... absolutely yes!!!

Exceeded my expectations

I had the pleasure in meeting Allan during the selling of my Partners home, in which I very muched like his approach to his marketing strategy, along with his professional view and achieving a great outcome.

Later the same year I wanted to put my property at 20 Castlewood Road, Company Bay, Dunedin on the market, at the time the marketing was slow to moderate. I called Allan for an appraisal, seeking his advice to the best way of marketing my property. I very much enjoyed working with Allan, he has a great knowledge of the real estate/market, giving all options/information available for the sale of my property. Given the options we chose to go to Auction.

I admired the determination and hard work of Allan, within a short time Allan had an acceptable offer on the table. Given Allan's advice the Auction was brought forward, therefore exceeding my expectation. I would personally like to thank Allan.

It has been a pleasure detailing with Allan in the selling of my Property, I would not hesitate in forwarding Allan to any future clients.

We felt fully informed at all times

Thank you for successfully marketing our family home.

You came on board after a non-succesfuly contract ended with another agency. You listened to our request to have a new start with the marketing and restored our confidence in the assets of our property by arranging a professional phtographer to fully showcase the house and garden for advertising.

The immediate response was encouraging and you kept up the momentum needed to ensure a secure sale came out of various options. We felt fully informed at all times with the right balance of information and realism. Your attention to detail is outstanding as is your ability to keep in touch with all interested parties in a professional and discreet manner.

We would have no hesitation in recommending you to other prospective clients.
