I have known Alan Nobbs since buying our house in Akaroa through him over eighteen years ago. Alan also was responsible for the sale of my parent’s farm and their subsequent purchase of a house in Akaroa. We have recently sold this house, again with Alan acting as the agent. In all of these transactions I have found Alan to be extremely honest and accurate with his appraisals of property and understanding of our requirements. He worked conscientiously to make sure of a successful outcome for all concerned. These are views I know are held by all the people in Akaroa who have had professional dealings with him.

My wife and I have known Alan Nobbs for many years thru dealings with his real estate business and had confidence in him so it was a ‘no brainer’ when it came time to make a decision who to list our holiday home with. Being away from Akaroa for the most part, it was important to have someone to keep us informed as to developments. We were extremely satisfied with all aspects of the successfully completed sale of our holiday home culminating in obtaining a top price at auction.’

When we recently decided to sell out home in Akaroa, we unhesitatingly chose Alan Nobbs as agent on our behalf; we did so based on our experience of buying the house through Alan some 10 years previously, when his professional help and reliability had been much appreciated. During the recent sale process, Alan’s performance on our behalf has been exemplary throughout. Alan has a wealth of local knowledge and is obviously a well-respected and widely known member of the Akaroa Community, which we have recognised as invaluable to the whole process of finding a buyer for our home. In fact, Alan has succeeded in achieving a sale for us prior to auction, by way of his commitment and application at all times. His manner in dealing with clients is always reassuring and trustworthy, primarily because of his relaxed, friendly and helpful approach which we like.’ Alan always has given us good and accurate feedback and has always been readily available and supportive at all times. I would have no hesitation in recommending Alan Nobbs to any clients, whether they would be buying or selling.

Recently my husband and I decided to purchase a property in Akaroa and contacted several agents in the area. We finally decided to work with one agent by the name of Alan Nobbs, who works for Harcourts Grenadier Akaroa. Alan at all times has been very professional in his approach and in a very friendly and pleasant way. During the purchase of our property in Akaroa, Alan was on holiday but this in no way slowed the process of buying this. At all times he was available and responded immediately by email or phone. While in the midst of buying this property there was a problem that arose regarding the garage. Alan was brilliant during this time and was exceptionally helpful to us and ensured that the problem was foxed to our satisfaction. I would have no hesitation in recommending Alan as an agent as he is always available and allowed us to make our own decisions and time to do this.
