- Steve & Kelly -Ngaratunua

My back to basics
Drove north to have look at what maybe forsale in northland. Had few boxes wanted tick off. Met Jess and she took me to this property for a look. TBH we hadnt even got out off the car n I knew this was it. Jess was great and had all the answers, it was so reassuring. Made an offer and we signed a contract same evening. With covid lockdown in Auckland Jess contacted the owners to see if I could go up prior to owning which was much appreciated. The settlement was smooth and now have my own little piece off paradise to enjoy
Thanks Jess for everything

Well organised sale in Whangarei
Shari was recommended to me by my sister who had experienced great service from Shari with a recent sale and a purchase for her son. Shari viewed the unit and gave a rental assessment and a market sales value assessment. Our family considered selling the unit was the best option.
Shari guided us through cleaning the unit, with recommended commercial cleaners and a carpet cleaner. She dressed the unit ready for the promotional photos and later open home.
The market was strong and the unit presented very well, with multiple offers presented in the week following the first open home.
The professionalism shown by Shari was great and as I live several hundred kilometres south of Whangarei in the Bay of Plenty, I was able to deal with Shari electronically, with mu sister living near Whangarei also in touch.
This sale was no great fuss and went ahead very quickly in the end result. This helped immensely as there was family stress with our mother being in hospital and then going to a rest home.
Thanks Shari, your skills and experience were greatly appreciated.

- Ken -Kamo

Oliver was a pleasure to work with. He has a very approachable and friendly manner. He was very prompt to answer any queries. The transaction was reasonably uncomplicated, assisted by his negotiating abilities. We would use Oliver at any time in the future if we need an agent.

- Alicia -Horahora

Was a pleasure dealing with Jessica with the sale of our property.

We faced many challenges with stage 4 lockdown being the main one which she dealt with very professionally.

We didn't expect it to sell as quick as it did which is a credit to her.

Highly recommend her services.

- Daniel -Opu

I cannot talk highly enough about Jess' efforts to sell my house. She had a clear strategy from the get go, which was bang on. She has boundless energy and exceeded my expectations by a country mile. Nothing was too much trouble for her. And when it got to the negotiating stage she navigated it brilliantly. If you want to sell your house contact Jess.

- Dave -Ngaratunua

Gary is a very good communicator with a strong work ethic. His years of experience brought a broad skill set with much knowledge and market insight, which made us feel comfortable handing the sale process over to him. Gary is a down to earth person, who even introduced himself to our neighbours and let them know about the pending visitors. Even with the uncertainty of Covid 19, in less than 3 weeks from going live with One Agency, we had a multi offer on our property and a sale price exceeding our expectation. We highly recommend Gary Younger and One Agency.

- Ross & Marjorie -Ruatangata West

Marketing and Sale of Residential Property
When a decision was made early this year to move on from our present home after twenty years of ownership we chose Gary Younger to act as our sole agent. We have known Gary for most of the time we have lived in Whangarei and have had close contact with Gary Younger over many years particularly in connection with the support of the Cancer Society fund raising activities. We were happy to engage an agent to work on our sales and marketing programme who had a proven record of community service and who showed a high level of personal integrity. So this was the starting point of our property sales association.
The work undertaken by Gary and his associate Oliver Scripps in putting together the arrangement of presentation, marketing and sale of the property has been carried out in a thoroughly professional manner and in close consultation with our needs and wishes.

We make a strong recommendation to any one interested in this service.

- Keith and Joan -Horahora

I was buying, Gary was great to deal with, not pushy and very open. So I decided to use him to sell too, which is the best evidence of happiness with his service.

- Kerry -Kauri

Gary knows the Whangarei market, is very professional and works for the Vendor and Buyer.
His communication is excellent!
He has a great personality and isn't in any way "pushy".
It was a pleasure dealing with him, especially as I have not purchased a home for a while, and he made it easy :)


- Mary -Otangarei

From start to finish we found Gary to be open and honest in all our dealings with him, we put in a conditional offer on a property subject to our property selling and like all of us he acknowledged that he did not know how Corona virus may impact the market, but remained optimistic and marketed our property to attract a range of buyers. He kept us informed as to what interest there was with our property and presented multiple offers within a week of listing the property. We have been able to settle on our new property well within the time frame we had. We would have no hesitation in recommending Gary to list and help sell your property - he did a great job for us and will use him again in the future if required.

- Michael & Elaine -Maunu

Oliver has excellent communication skills and always followed up on any questions or information with efficiency. Very approachable and easy going, making the process open, honest and as stress free as possible.

- Natalie -Kamo

Right from the beginning Oliver made us feel at ease with the whole process. Communication was the key and he did that so well through email, text, messages and phone calls. Every question of ours was answered with complete clarity. Oliver really made the effort to get to know us so he could figure out what would suit us best during the stressful time of selling a house. It was the extra effort he put in, going well above and beyond the work of an agent that he did, spending part of his weekend helping us with yard work to get the property looking its best for the purchaser. We are so pleased to recommend Oliver with confidence and enthusiasm to anybody who is looking for an agent to sell their house!

- Amy -Kamo

First I would like to thank Jess for all of her help and expertise in selling my dads house during difficult times, Jess new right marketing approach to get the house sold in quick and timely manner with good financial result, I have no hesitation in recommending Jess Barnes for any person requiring a great Real Estate agent to market your property.

I was buying a property and although I feel the agent is working for the vendor, Gary was very professional. with excellent communication skills.
I would enlist Gary's help in the future if I was selling.

- Jenny -Kamo

As buyers, it was nice to meet Gary who was approachable and friendly without losing his professionalism. The lines of communication between him and us were always open. He made himself available during the whole process - even weekends and after hours.
Highly recommend Gary and wouldn't hesitate to use him again.

- Sue & James -Parahaki

Selling one's home can be a traumatic and frustrating experience as many are aware. Having been through the process on several previous occasions, in Auckland, Whangarei and Takaka, I must admit it was with some trepidation that I approached the problem of having to go through this all again and choose the right company for the job.
I cannot speak highly enough of the service I received from Gary Younger and staff at One Agency Whangarei. From the expert knowledge, courtesy, and hassle-free professionalism the sale of my home was acheived to a successful conclusion for all parties, with Gary often going out of his way to do that little extra making the overall event a minor occasion rather than a major in my life.
I therefore recommend, without hesitation, that this is the company to use for real estate buying/selling.

- Anne -Parahaki

Gary and Jess were great agents.
They were very responsive and worked hard on our behalf to make our home sale process as smooth as possible.
We were selling our first home so having their knowledge and support was invaluable.

- Sam & Bryn -Onerahi

- Teresa & Peter -Kensington

We found Gary and his staff very caring and professional in all aspects of selling our home, including open-homes and random inspections.

- Glenys & Winston -Kamo

Gary kept in regular contact by both email and phone, providing valuable information regarding the market in general and out property in particular. Gary's experience certainly made a big difference in the final outcome, and I have no hesitation in recommending Gary and the team to anyone considering buying or selling a house.

- Barry -Purua

Gary Younger recently sold our lifestyle property for us. We chose Gary as our agent as he was friendly, really informative but no overwhelming. He also had a much fairer commission rate than some of the others.
Gary made the whole experience fairly easy for us, he kept us informed and updated regularly and got us our asking price.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Gary to anyone I know wanting to sell their house.

- Kim and Shane -Ruatangata West

We felt that Gary proactively and knowledgeably looked for opportunities to better our deal and was prepared to put the work in. We also found Gary to be an enjoyable engaging feet-on-the-ground character - his local rural roots have stood him in good stead. We would happily use his services again.

I recently sold my property and used Gary Younger of One Agency Whangarei. Gary impressed me with his communication throughout the sale process. He kept me informed at every step e.g. before and immediately post viewings by both phone and email. He also kept me updated with buyer feedback and when there were additional house inspections, builders inspections and rental assessments completed.
His knowledge of the industry and housing market is impressive and I was happy with the sales result, produced in a good timeframe, during a period when the market was considered to be slowing!
I have, and will continue to, recommend Gary and One Agency Whangarei to our friends and acquaintances - his service, knowledge and the commission rate are a point of difference in today's competitive market.

The whole process with Gary was smooth sailing and seamless. He kept it simple and explained things as we moved through the process. Easy to deal with and great communication.

Gary was our agent in the sale of our long-standing family home. Gary sold our family home and he was the agent involved in the purchase of our new home. When our plans changed and we needed to sell Gary was integral in the sale of the new property. We went with Gary given our confidence in him as our real estate agent.

- Sarah -Kamo

We chose Jess after having a great experience with her helping us sign up our house as a rental. A little while later we decided to sell and have just completed the process today. We are so happy with how everything went. Jess really knows the local market and had great advice about marketing. We had interested buyers within days and got the price we wanted from the sale. Don't hesitate to get in touch with her if you are looking for someone to help with the sale or purchase of a home. You won't be disappointed. Thanks again Jess, you're amazing!

- Sharon & Derren -Kensington

Said goodbye to our first home for the past 8 years on Friday after an awesome auction thanks to Gary Younger and the team at #OneAgency. If you’re looking for an agent he’s your man! We’re beyond stoked with the result we got and couldn’t recommend him enough!

- Ben & Krista

We came to Gary to sell our house because he’d sold one for us previously and we knew how hard he worked to get the price we needed. Our buyers this time were first home buyers and Gary did a great job of helping them through the process while still getting the best price for us. Gary works hard for his clients and his commitment to supporting our community is impressive. We would have no hesitation in recommending Gary and One Agency to anyone selling their property.

We were unable to live in the house during the sale process, but thanks to a great team we were kept up to date every step of the way with either emails or phone calls.
We have no hesitation in recommending One Agency. An excellent job from start to finish
