We have just completed the very successful sale of our property by David Penrose of Sothebys Realty, Queenstown. From the initial appraisal, where David was highly knowledgeable of the current market, through to the detailed marketing proposal and process, he was extremely diligent and kept up us up to date with all aspects.
David was able to procure a purchaser within a short timeframe and dealt with a number of resultant queries by the purchaser in a very efficient manner, resolving matters whilst communicating with us at all stages and acting in our best interests.
We could not have asked for a better outcome and would highly recommend David Penrose as a thoroughly professional sales agent in all aspects.

"We have been extremely happy with the service that David has provided in quickly selling our Queenstown apartment. He has been extremely professional, thorough and diligent within a short timeframe for a challenging sale. Living remotely from Queenstown, it's been great to have someone who knows the market, knew the development intimately, and was able to reliably and confidently handle all inquiries from both local and overseas prospective purchasers. We have really appreciated his responsiveness, open and honest communication, and flexibility in meeting our demanding needs. Many thanks indeed! "

My wife and I want to express again our gratitude for your diligent and professional work ethic in helping us to find a buyer for our property.
Unfortunately we wasted more than 5 years of that time to work with the wrong agents in Queenstown until we found you.
Again, many thanks for all your efforts and your sincere way of dealing with us. Living abroad trying to sell a property from here can be sometimes very nerve racking. Today, we know that selling or buying the right property for the right price, totally depends on the professionalism, honesty and expertise of an experienced broker like yourself. My wife and I want you to know that if any of our friends or family considers buying a property in New Zealand, we will definitely recommend you as a reliable, ethical and hardworking partner.

“A few years ago we became interested in investing in the Queenstown property market as overseas investors. During our initial research, we’ve met David and he showed us a few apartments in his portfolio. At the time we didn’t pursue the opportunity. David stayed in touch with us regardless. When we looked again a few months ago, he was naturally our first point of call. David and his wife, Lynece, are both very affable, reliable and committed professionals. Dealing with them was a sincere pleasure at all times. We always felt we could trust them and that they act in our interests as well. We recently invested in a beautiful lakefront apartment and are very pleased with the purchasing process. When you deal with David, you know you will be looked after. You also know that he is not trying to talk you into a purchase. Most importantly, you know you deal with a strong values based professional. With great respect.”

As a overseas resident you have to have the confidence in the services of a purchasing and selling real estate. This was clearly evident and displayed by David Penrose who is a truly professional agent. David has the ability to communicate at all levels, he was excellent and thorough in his handling of the sale of a property for us. He was very efficient, effective, and personable. I would certainly recommend David's reputable services anytime.
Tina Benton, Australia.

I retained David on an exclusive basis for two primary reasons; a) he works for a premium brand agency and b) because I got a very clear and definite sense of his deep integrity from our very first meeting. I was not disappointed; David (and his wife, Lynece) were incredibly attentive and went above-and-beyond in assisting me during a very hectic and demanding period. The end result was a successful sale, but more importantly, it was achieved in a manner that I felt was appropriate and in-keeping with a measured and dignified approach to doing business for all concerned: seller, buyer and agent." Top Qualities: Great Results, Personable, High Integrity

I have the pleasure to write this testimonial and express my gratitude for your assistance in the purchase of our home. Without your help and expertise I wonder if my plans to secure a holiday home in your beautiful town could have proceeded so smoothly.
Coming from Hong Kong we are accustomed to putting in the extra effort to make the deal work. And David, you’re no stranger to this work ethic. The 110% (maybe even a bit more) you put into the entire process made this purchase easy and hassle-free. Over the period of nearly one month during due diligence I am grateful that you, along with Lynece, have gone the extra mile many times to sort out the complexities normally associated with a home this size. All this hard work in the background did not go unnoticed. And I now take immense pleasure to formally say a heart-felt “Thank you” to both yourself and your wife in helping my family turn our Queenstown dream into reality.
We also appreciate the many quality referrals you have supplied in the area of home maintenance professionals – letting us feel a peace of mind that our home is well attended to even in our absence.
We look forward to spending a great deal of quality time in our new home and it goes without saying much of that will be in your good company.
Yours sincerely
John Chan - Hong Kong

Recently I purchased a property from David Penrose. I found him to be extremely professional, not at all pushy and very informative and helpful.
David showed us a selection of properties, and spent a considerable amount of time patiently explaining the pro’s and con’s of each one and allowing us to make an informed decision.
Not only did he find us our property, he put us in touch with solicitors, bankers and contractors that were required to complete the transaction.
David is someone that I can completely trust and I would definitely count on him to help me again in the future.

I find David’s services excellent, and he recommends the most beneficial options for his clients.
I am very grateful for the efforts of David, and I would not hesitate to contact him again if I decide to purchase another property. He is a very valuable member of the team and I highly recommend his services to anyone looking to purchase property.
