Jill was the exclusive agent for my commercial property in Paparoa and I just want to say Jill made the whole process from listing to settlement so smooth and easy. Nothing was a problem. Communication was quick and efficient, so I put this down to experience and expertise. I would recommend Jill any day.


Rachael’s knowledge and professionalism takes the stress out of the buying and selling process. Rachael is honest, friendly, and reliable. She makes it her priority to know her clients well, so she understands exactly what their needs are. I would definitely recommend Rachael as a Real Estate Agent; you can trust her to find your dream home or sell your property. Rachael always works hard to get the best results. Thanks, Rachael, for always making yourself available at the drop of a hat it’s always been a pleasure working with you.

My wife and I have recently purchased a property in Mangaturoto and wish to convey our gratitude to the wonderful job Rhoda has done.

As an advocate and representative of your business and the real estate business in general Rhoda has been exemplary. From day one of our interaction with Rhoda she has given us the confidence, trust, knowledge, professionality and enthusiasm which in our minds separates her from the norm and I can’t bestow enough praise upon her. We are not the easiest of purchasers and recently had a very bad experience with an agent in the Auckland area which certainly held our thoughts of the industry with low regard. All too often we hear the negatives, and it is really satisfying to be able to convey some tangible positives.

Our words of praise also extend to your Roper and Jones business model as we all understand great people require and attract great support.

I would have Rhoda on my team any day and I can confidently say the vendors in this case hold her with equally high regard.
Once again thanks, it is a credit to the industry to have such people.

…thanks a lot for a great job … You were willing to ‘go the extra mile’, and as I work in a Company where ‘Customer Service Satisfaction’ is a priority, you certainly provided that for us.
Any other Agents we dealt with did not seem to have the ‘energy’ that you had when we first approached you and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. … You listened to our request… We are only too happy to recommend you to anyone in the future.”


This was me and my husband’s first time selling a home, and the staff at First National made the whole process so easy and stress-free. They took care of all of the details, and all of the advertising was included within the set fees, meaning no anxiety about escalating costs. They really listened to us and cared about making the process work for our situation and timeframe. They took really great photos, gave excellent advice, and very quickly attracted serious buyers. We found it really comforting to be able to contact them whenever we had a query, and they were always ready to make time to explain things to us. We could not have been happier with the service we received from First National, who were not only outstanding to deal with, but who demonstrated excellent knowledge of the market and managed to sell our property for a higher amount than we anticipated.
