I used Maxine to buy an apartment while overseas, she was very quick to reply to all my questions. Working with her made the whole process go a lot smoother. She understands the struggles of buying Property while overseas so she helped me out in anyway she could. I would highly recommend her.

Maxine persevered with us investigating many properties in a very challenging market, before completing a successful purchase.

We were very pleased with her determination to find the right deal for us, in particular as we are out of NZ, and need to rely heavily on local knowledge and advice.
