We found Jon and Mike extremely easy to deal with. We were very pleased with their ongoing communication during the campaign. We were given plenty of notice prior to inspections. They were honest and trustworthy and we would not hesitate to use them again as lifestyle agents under the Bayleys marketing umbrella.

During our recent property transactions with Mike Preston, Bayleys Canterbury his service was professional, timely and competent. Mike and his team have a sound understanding of their market. Mike has a considered and measured approach. The communication time lines and project time lines were adhered to. Back office support was excellent. Accordingly I have used Bayleys Canterbury subsequently. Mike is an absolute pleasure to deal with.
Paul Gillett, CEO, SRS New Zealand Limited

Mike was thoroughly professional throughout the selling of Mum’s property. We were overseas for most of the sale time and Mike was excellent with progress reports also especially organising the renters for open home and presenting it to buyers, quite a challenge keeping the property in selling condition. However Mike with his excellent people skills certainly kept this smooth and everyone happy. Mike has also an amazing attitude. It certainly was a complete special experience dealing with him, he certainly gets any future business we may have.

Right from our very first meeting, Marita and I have been impressed with Mike and George’s focus on doing their best for us. They were empathetic to our wishes and realistic in their advice. We felt that they worked hard throughout the process of marketing our properties, introducing potential buyers and always following up. They always kept us up to date. The succesful sale of both properties was testament to the professional work of two exceptional real estate agents.
