To whom it may concern,
Joe and Doug have sold two farm properties for us in Nelson in December 2019.
One was sold by Tender, the other a Deadline sale.
Being a partnership arrangement with two estates and two other partners, these sales involved a lot of negotiating with all 4 parties.
I think Joe and Doug did an outstanding job of negotiating with all involved, including those looking to buy and us looking to sell.
Thankfully it was a very quick sale, and we are more than happy with the end result.
215ha - Dryland sheep, beef and Forestry property
61ha - Flat coastal development property
“We listed with Doug Smith as we could see from real estate signs that he was active and successful in our area. We found him to be enthusiastic and attentive and with a good background knowledge of rural living which was very useful. Doug found buyers for our property very promptly, handled the ins and outs of the transaction well, keeping us informed, and we ended up well satisfied with the whole process and result.”Richard Wells
"G’day Doug, many thanks for the marketing and extremely quick sale of our Upper Moutere Property.
We greatly appreciated your courteous and professional approach, the sale happened
much sooner than we anticipated and the sales and purchase agreement you put together
covered all of our concerns nicely. Thanks again"

"Doug Smith acted as my agent for the sale of my property over several months in 2016. I found Doug to be a very astute person who understood the need to be clear and concise in his work. Doug went about his responsibilities in a professional manner while recognising good communication was paramount. I have no hesitation in recommending him to any future client."Keith Tillman
Doug has put in great effort and shown perseverance to make this sale happen. He has handled the sale with professional demeanour and excellent communication throughout.Matthes Bender
After having had our property on the market for about two years, without success, we contacted Doug Smith, who then successfully (and within a short period of time) sold our property. We enjoyed doing business with Doug, who impressed us with his professionalism and efficiency, even after we had moved back to the Netherlands. Thanks again and we wish you a lot of successBart & Ria Lintsen
