Testimonials

Over the last 30 years my late husband and I have been associated with PGG Wrightson.  Craig Bates and his staff have been able to make all our dealings with them so problem free.  The land we purchased through them to build our house on made it a no brainer for me to contact Craig to market the farmlet.  Because Craig made it such a straight forward process I would recommend them totally.  Once again thanks PGG Wrightson.

Sue

Our recent property sale is the second sale Craig has managed for us over the last 20 years.Choosing Craig and his excellent team to sell our property was the best decision we made. Craig's expertise in knowing the market and his very professional approach and dedication were key to our decision and we can't thank him enough for everything he has done for us. We were kept up to date with every step and achieved a very pleasing result. If you are thinking about selling your property and you want someone who is reliable, hard working, professional and a great communicator then we have no hesitation recommending Craig.

Joy and Ferg Nicolson

Craig and Donna were the real estate team that managed the recent sale of properties for me. The process was seamless and successful. I was kept well-informed right through, and was able to relax and trust that everything was under control.

Susan McMillan

"Any part of a property sale can be problematic at any time, but having sold my property during Covid19 lockdown was something again. Craig and his team at PGG Wrightson have gone to extraordinary lengths to get the sale across the line and to make it happen seamlessly for both parties under trying circumstances. I take my hat off and have no hesitation to recommend Craig for anyone wishing to get the best price and assistance in any future sales“.

Steve Finnie

Craig and his team successful sold our 785 hectare Sheep and Beef, Middlemarch farm in May 2019. We sold by Deadline Private Treaty which suited us. We found the team very approachable and helpful with all matters concerning the sale, from the professional photos to the great communication when people viewed the property. We have known Craig for many years and would highly recommended him for selling your property with his friendly, straight up and professional attitude. We wish Craig well with his future sales.
