With 22 years of real estate experience, starting our own business is one of the best things we have ever done for myself and for my clients.
Having previously worked in two corporate style real estate companies, our business enables me to tailor strategies for our clients and provide them the comfort of dealing with a committed, local owner.
We started NZR 9 years ago from scratch and now have one of the largest farm market shares across the Manawatu & Rangitikei regions. One of the drivers of this growth has been happy past clients referring us to new clients.
My background before real estate in rural banking, valuation and stock & station industries following gaining a B.Com (Ag), provides me a wide experience and skill base to draw on to assist my clients.
Our local Manawatu/Rangitikei rural team includes Gareth Hagan and Rural PA Steph Killin, enabling me to focus on marketing, sales and negotiation on behalf of my clients. This team approach ensures nothing is left to chance in ensuring we get the best result for our clients.
“Highly recommend Peter! Very knowledgeable and trustworthy and a pleasure to work with. Thanks for helping us find our farm!”
Britney & Andrew Perkins
“Peter is a good guy to spend time with. He’s no dummy and his background in Ag means “he gets it”. Peter is a handy auctioneer as well… albeit he recently proved that you can’t get blood out of a stone. I’ve bought and sold a few farms over the years and in my experience Peter and the guys at NZR have set the best standards. “
“We recently had the opportunity to successfully sell our property near Feilding through NZR.
We had known of Peter through our farming related business previously and because of his association with farming we felt NZR and Peter in particular would be a good “fit” for us.
Peter came with a reputation for being very genuine and communicating well.
We chose NZR as we felt Peter would be a person we could relate to well and would listen and take on board the different scenarios that we felt were possibilities to sell our property, but, at the same time be willing to give his opinion and provide suggestions.
We wanted an agent who was honest, upfront and straight forward with no unnecessary rhetoric, but at the same time kept us fully informed of what was happening.
We are pleased to say our dealings with NZR lived up to our expectations.
Peter has amazing support staff in his administration team who are extremely efficient.
Nothing was left to chance by Peter or his admin team and we are grateful for that.
We would feel comfortable in recommending Peter and his staff to anyone contemplating selling a property.”
Prain & Sue Irving
“Professional. Thorough. Great communication. On time. Kept promises.”
Duncan and Sarah
"Choosing NZR to market our 15.7 hectare lifestyle farm was very easy, based on word of mouth comments and known reputation.
Once we had signed up with NZR, Peter was in regular contact, gave us plenty of sound advice and instilled us with confidence. We were particularly impressed with the Property Report layout, the photos and the drone footage of the farm.
We enthusiastically recommend Peter & Nicola Barnett from NZR when you are considering selling your property."
- Jan & Jamie
"Right from the first time we met Peter and Nicola at a viewing, we found them extremely helpful and happy to give advice.
The subsequent appraisal was given with enthusiasm for our property, which gave us confidence that we would get a great price (which we did).
Throughout the listing and purchase process, Peter, Nicola and Alex were positive, helpful and communicated well. We would recommend NZR!"
- Simon and Raelene
“Potaka Station” whilst a good farming operation and well managed was one of the more high priced properties sold in the North Island recently and required a well organised real-estate company to manage the sale.
From my point of view as owner , I must compliment you and your team for a well run programme through the entire sale process.
From the start of the advertising programme over a period of 6 weeks and your personal commitment of virtually spending everyday there over that timeframe made , I believe potential buyers ,very pleased with the level of knowledge you had of the property.
I know some of the days during the winter may not have been the most enjoyable , but that didn’t seem to deter you or your team , and think that showed a real estate company who was prepared to go that “extra mile”.
With interest from all over New Zealand and abroad it required a company that was prepared to satisfy queries 24/7.
As mentioned I would like to thankyou personally for your commitment and give NZR Ltd a strong endorsement to other potential sellers of farms about the quality of service from your company."
"Pete was great to deal with! He was up front and there were no problems."
"Peter took all the responsibilty off me allowing me to relax knowing I was in good hands."
"Peter at all times maintained a trustworthy position and has our confidence that his judgements were in our best interests.
We appreciated his knowledge of the real estate industry and would recommend him as an agent with an honest upfront personality, who put 100% into achieving the sale on our property."
- Tony and Maxine
"Before putting our property on the market we had concerns about finding an agent who would represent our wishes and needs through the campaign and right to the end Peter worked hard for us as vendors. In fact his follow up and assistance post sale has also been most appreciated."
- Richard and Christina
"We were impressed and delighted with the way in which you dealt with us, as well as potential purchasers, and all other people involved in the process.
You have a rare talent of being able to present yourself as a warm and open human being at the same time as conducting professional and efficient business.
It was a pleasure for us to be able to deal with you and we thoroughly appreciated your skills and valued them."
