I have known Eric Chase for over 3 years and had a very successful conclusion to the business we engaged in.
I say business rather than sale because one of the abilities Eric has is to visualise an opportunity and then put together a series of deals to realise an outcome far greater in value than the individual
In my case this was certainly true and has also brought that value to fruition far earlier than anticipated.
I would like to take this opportunity to take my hat off to you regarding the sale of 84 Hutchinson Rd Howick. This was a difficult project for you to complete successfully, as the property was somewhat run down and tenanted. However, i was impressed by the way you delivered an outstanding result in the sale of another property of mine at 3 Fiesta Dr Buckland’s Beach. The later home you sold to an investor who was in fact a resident of Switzerland whom had never set foot on the property.
The Hutchinson Rd sale was equally impressive as you squeezed every cent available out of the buyer(s) and delivered a clean straight forward deal. This was complicated when the lockdown for Covid19 commenced, but you still kept in touch with the buyer and the deal eventually settled on time for the correct sum.
I have know you for many years now and I would consider you to be one of Auckland's most skilled agents and auctioneers. Even though I am a real estate agent myself I have no hesitation recommending you to any one looking for a class agent.
I am happy to talk in person, to any of your clients on your behalf, to verbally confirm this letter.
Eric thanks again
