Leonie has been by far the best agent i have dealt with!!
Right from the beginning Leonie has been polite, cheerful, courteous, helpful, honest and kept us informed and updated through the stressful even of selling. She helped not only with suggestions but with "hands on" as we prepared our home to be listed even bringing some of her own furnishings to dress some areas. Throughout the whole process (listing, viewing, offers etc) nothing has been too much trouble (visiting, phoning and emailing) to make sure we understood and were aware of what was happening, We have no hesitation in recommending her!! She does a brilliant job!!
Patient, detailed, and gets the best for her client
Leonie is the BEST agent we have ever worked with. We have bought and sold multiple properties throughout New Zealand and had the best experience with Leonie. To say she goes the extra mile is an understatement. Through a pandemic and other unforeseen issues, Leonie kept us fully informed on every aspect of the sale and got us exactly what we wanted with our sale. We highly recommend Leonie because she connects with her clients, sees the full potential in the sale, and focuses on finding the right buyer. If we are ever going to buy or sell a property again she will be our first point of contact. Leonie is a class act! Thank you Leonie!
Done & dusted.
Our experience with both Renate and Dan representing One Agency was a hassle-free relationship. Both of them were cordial and nothing was ever a problem, they were very accommodating in our communications. We would consider using their agency if we were to sell in the future.
Thanks for the easy-going purchase.
Just before the first lockdown my mother suffered a fall breaking her hip and as a result moved in with us permanently and resulting in the decision to sell her much loved home. Renate was very kind and all the major decisions were made during home visits and in the presence of Mum. It was difficult organizing viewings during the Covid lockdown but Renate persisted and always let us know the results of each viewing or open home. I was very impressed with the quality of the marketing photography. We also appreciated her advice on pricing relative to other similar properties. Thank You Renate.
House Purchase through Renate.
We had the pleasure of meeting and dealing with Renate very recently, with the purchase process of a new home in Kerikeri.
Renate from our first meeting was professional, very efficient and bought a very personable approach to the entire process. We were also impressed with the fact the Renate represented herself at all times with the best interests of both us as purchasers, but also the vendor in mind.
The entire sale & purchase process was smooth and very effectively managed by Renate. We certainly have no hesitation in recommending Renate as a first class agent. Thank you.

Sale of land with Renate Ochse from One Agency Far North
Renate was great to work with in what is always a stressful process, but we got the figure we wanted and lovely new neighbours.
The review title says it all. From the time Renate first crossed our doorstep she exhibited enthusiasm for our product, she was well equipped with information on recent sales and she pitched for our listing In a calm, calculated way. Negotiating the commission payable was instigated by her which was a pleasant surprise. The fact she front footed that issue certainly gave her a shoe in, securing the listing. It showed integrity that I have not experienced with other Real Estate Agents.
She put no pressure on us during the sales process, gave good notice to inspect, very good honest feedback and was able to bring the sale to a conclusion in a timely, professional manner.

Brilliant Advice & Service
This is the 4th property Renate has sold for me, excellent service advice and feedback, wouldn't hesitate to use again

Simply the best!
Leonie is the best real estate agent we've ever met! She found us our dream home in Whangaroa. Leonie was super efficient. As soon as we made contact with her by email, she sent us information about several houses we might like to look at. We met her and saw three different houses, one of which we ended up buying. She has gone the extra mile, meeting with a building inspector and helping out with several other contacts and services we needed. Can't recommend her highly enough!

Great service and communication
We sold our section through Renate and the experience was great. She offered the highest appraisal of 5 we received and she nailed it. What most impressed us was the swift and concise communication which can be an issue these days it seems. We highly recommend Renate and would use her again if buying or selling in the area.
We have had the most wonderful experience purchasing a property through Renate & Daniel, they made every aspect of the purchase easy and enjoyable. Incredibly prompt with contact in responding to any queries we had, even after the sale had gone through! Thanks Renate and Daniel. through Renate & Daniel, they made every aspect of the purchase easy and enjoyable.

Renate is an excellent Real Estate agent, she went above my expectations when collecting the information required, nothing was a problem, very happy friendly service. More than happy to recomend her.
Seemless experience selling
When deciding to sell our property, we approached a couple of agents to view the property and appraise. Renate was very easy to communicate with, she listened and took on board all that we said. When the time came to list we decided to appoint Renate to list our property. We had no regrets, she involved us in the process all the way, communicating with us regularly. Yes we would use Renate again, and can thoroughly recommend her to anybody who is looking to selling there property, or buy one. Thank you Renate.

Leonie was wonderful. Very helpful for us new to the property market. Open communication and lovely to speak to. Thank you Leonie for all of your help during the time of us purchasing our land.
Review submitted by Emma & Troy Sheffield (buyer) on 13 Aug 2020
Upon meeting me for the 1st time Renate took the time to talk to me and understand my situation and the type of property I was interested in.
Renate is one of Only two agents (from the many I met) who called me after an open home to see how interested I was.
The house I purchased was one that I only looked at because Renate invited me for a private viewing.
She has held open homes and private viewings for both properties that I was interested in and basically just made it hassle free to purchase, so I can definitely recommend Renate to buyers and sellers alike.
The experience that we had with Leonie was simply amazing, nothing was too hard, every thing was doable.We have sold a lot of homes over the years, and without exception Leonie is the best agent we have ever dealt with.We all hate paying real estate fees but in this instance I was more than happy to pay.Her communication through out the hole process was so good we knew everything that was happening every step of the way.As for Leonie herself what a beautiful soul, after meeting her it is so easy to see why she is so successful, thank you so much for all your help and hard work,Wayne and Chris.

Leonie went above and beyond what a real estate agent would normally do. Because we are overseas, she has organised quotes and inspections and has earned great confidence and respect from us. Everything went smoothly from the start and for that we will be eternally grateful. Thanks for everything Leonie!

From the day l met Leonie l was impressed by her professional presentation, how easy she was to talk to and that she was also a good listener. Her attention to detail was evident in her marketing skills and her continual communication with me throughout so l trusted her implicitly to handle the sale. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone wanting to sell a property. Thank you Leonie for making it so easy for me.

Carrie was a knowledgeable, professional and simply a great agent. She had great knowledge of the sales process, communicated very well with us at all times and worked with a great team of agents. I would highly recommend Carrie as she always gives 110% and such a lovely person to deal with.

We have purchased and sold property through Leonie and found her very honest, open to suggestions and I don't think you will find an agent that works as hard as she does. She has a fantastic personality and can't wait to invite her to view our home when its completed. Strongly recommend using her.

Was referred by a friend to Carrie. She is a remarkable agent, very professional, very very hard working, always keeps you in the loop, friendly. I was very very lucky to have her as my agent and sold my house in mere weeks in a tough area to sell homes, and was worth every penny of the commission. I had nightmares with previous experiences with other agents, and my sell went as smooth as silk. I wish her the very best.
Above expectations, will go back
Not an easy sell, but was very efficient and kept us informed
It would be very easy to tick all of the proficiency box's but I would like to go into a bit more depth.
It was immediately aperient that we would get along, but what I found was that Carrie, as with me made everyone fell welcome. It has to do with her outgoing friendliness, and her smile. She had all of the information on my peace of land and told me what level the market was at and to be patent the property would sale. I am assuming the buyers would have received the same treatment, hence no hick-ups.
I am pleased to be able to say “job well done!”.
My fondest regards.

Yvonne has been wonderful throughout the purchase process of our plot on Paewhenua Island. She has liaised with the various people involved with expedience and has kept us fully informed of anything we have needed to deal with. The sale was faultless. We would recommend anyone buying in Mangonui and the surrounding area to make a call to Yvonne before anyone else. (verified by ratemyagent)
The sale of my section turned out to be a long drawn out affair through no fault of myself or Yvonne. Throughout the process, I always felt that Yvonne was 'in the driver's seat' and I was in good, safe hands. She was able to think laterally and encouraged me many times along the way. I would not hesitate to recommend Yvonne to anyone, anywhere.
Always available for questions and helpful in all ways

I found Yvonne excellent and helpful. After buying a house through Yvonne in the first place, she was my first choice in agent selection to sell my other house. After doing an appraisal, we decided to carry on with the sale and I am more than happy with what has happened and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Would use her again if I require her services.
All the "I" were dotted and "T"crossed so to speak. Understood the price I wanted
and stuck to it

Can’t say enough great things about Leonie. It’s been an absolute pleasure dealing with her and she’s been very professional and dedicated all the way. Nothing was too much and I was always kept informed. I was very impressed by Leonie, and her knowledge and positive attitude helped make the whole process as stress-free as possible. Thank you Leonie 😀
Our faith in the real state industry has been fully restored.
Her hard working, non stop approach gave us almost instant results with positive outcome. We highly recommend Leonie if you are looking for positive results.

A true review of good service should simply ask the question “would I do the same again ?”
Without hesitation, our answer would be “yes”
We felt assured and comfortable from the start, communication was excellent throughout.
We’d have no hesitation in recommending Renate and Daniel and they’d be our first point of contact in the future.
Many thanks for your help.

I knew from before I met Leonie she was the right agent for me! Her sale stats speak for themselves. Not only was she empathetic to my feelings of selling my family home which was hard, she also knew my deadline and she got hands on literally helping in anyway including labour. She knows her stuff!!! Professional but hands on! Got me the price and her video was amazing
Our Dream Home
We had a very difficult house sale, but Renate was very knowledgeable and was able to help us keep calm and work our way through each problem we encountered. We really enjoyed her personal touch and availability to help with anything house sell and buy related. Thank you very much Renate and Daniel for helping us move into our dream home.

1st time home buyers and we couldn't have asked for a better Real Estate agent then Leonie. Hard working, a problem solver, ALWAYS available to take our calls and emails, we struck gold when we found her to help us with buying our first home. What a lady .... thank you for everything Leonie
Jeremy and Jo
I fell in love with this property the minute I saw it. I knew that it would not be on the market for long. Given that I had a property to sell Daniel and Renate reduced the stress involved fantastically. They were incredibly helpful and very aware of what both parties were going through. They could not have been better in my opinion.
Verified by RateMyAgent
Very helpful! Went the extra mile to help and show my family and I around the property, even with little notice sometimes!
From beginning to end of our experience with Leonie I found myself in awe of Leonie's professionalism and skill in marketing our house and making the process stress free for me. Without a word of a lie, Leonie not only hit the target date wanted for a sale, she got my house market ready at no extra charge either. The things she did still astonish me. Leonie replaced things, painted, gardened, took rubbish away, even offered to move all my things in her ute after it sold in order to meet the deadline date. I noticed she was also offering help in all sorts of ways to the purchasers prior to their move in.
Incredible Agent. I have mentioned her to a few people, even to the conveyance solicitor and it seems well known that Leonie does more than any agent for her clients. It still warms my heart about how good she is. I would recommend Leonie 100% to anyone either buying or selling.
We appreciated the market knowledge and professionalism when selling our porperty in Waipapa. They were honest in their communication and always kept us in the picture regarding feedback. Selling your home is always stressful, but their helped us through each step of the process and finalised the sale of our property to a very favorable conclusion. Thank you Renate and Daniel
We asked Yvonne to manage the sale of my elderly mothers house. Mum had lived in her house for nearly 30 years and it has been quite an emotional time for our family.
Yvonne was lovely to my mother who is frail and quite deaf. She included my mother in her conversations, explaining things, was patient and was the perfect person for this situation.
Yvonne Is a very lovely person, She is very professional, helpful, genuine, knowledgeable but most of all honest and a caring agent. I would definitely recommend Yvonne to anyone interested in needing an agent.
Leonie has gone the extra mile to ensure as purchasers of our new property, that due diligence was done on the legal background of the home, the facilities in and around the area, contacts with local building contractors and the property’s wonderful characteristics. We were presented with an excellent brochure compiled on the property’s historic background and all the improvements the current owners had invested in over time. We have been in contact with via Leonie with the owners gaining a raft of informative information and have enjoyed continued service with a smile after purchase. Thank you, Leonie. We will look after our new home.
Leonie Mateer was selected to market and sell our property as her knowledge of the area was excellent having lived in surrounding areas for sometime.
Photos and videos were taken by a professional photographer who also did a great job with a drone to show the outside of our property
Leonie was absolutely professional at all times, enthusiastic and encouraging.
Some places in our house needed a little bit of colour and Leonie supplied beautiful plants to bring the extra colour. When we were away for a few weeks she bought fresh flowers for the vases, lit the fires and warmed the house before showing to prospective buyers.
She advertised as promised and provided coverage on Facebook, trademe, produced brochures,
Composed an E-Book with all the details of our property. She was available at all times if we needed to ask or seek advice.
This was done at no cost to us at all.
We would recommend Leonie without question and are happy to speak to Vendors who might be thinking about selling their properties. Our details are listed below
Certainly the best Real Estate Agent we have ever dealt with by a million miles
Thank you Leonie for a very quick and easy sale.
If you want to sell any real estate look no further than Leonie Mateer. Leonie will make it her mission to find a buyer. Of all the properties I have dealt with I have not come across anyone that has put as much effort in as Leonie.
Friendly and Informative.
I started what could have been a traumatic ordeal of selling my rental property, with huge misgivings, and then made the best decision possible, I rang One Agency Far North. From the start Renate was calm, supportive, and as I prepared the property, she complemented me on every stage. My confidence grew and the ordeal became enjoyable, then when we reached the marketing stage and Daniel got involved I knew I had the best team in the business. They are a First Class Unit.

We spent several months dealing with Alan across several purchases. The first was a house/lifestyle block but this was unfortunately unable to proceed to settlement and was of a very sensitive nature. Alan handled a complex situation with diplomacy and fortunately we were then able to make two more purchases of horticultural blocks with him from another vendor, both of which were taken care of smoothly and attentatively. We would be happy to buy or sell with him again if the need arose.
I would not hesitate to recommend Renate and Daniel to anyone wanting to sell their property. Their professionalism, knowledge of the market and their communication (with us and our tenants) was excellent. They were always a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend anyone to use them as their sole agents.
A Buyers Perspective
If you ever thought a real estate agents job is easy, think again. I was truly enlightening to see just how hard Renate worked between parties to realise a successful outcome for both. This negotiation was protracted and I obtained a new appreciation for the time agents can put into the whole process with no guarantee of an outcome. As the purchasers having reached an agreement, Renate continued to provide invaluable assistance in helping obtain a rental appraisal which was crucial in obtaining finance. We are now looking forward to our new life in the north. Thanks for everything Renate
Renate and Daniel are both professionally competent, very good at communication and mindful of the unavoidable stress of selling a much loved property. We are particularly grateful for their constant and meaningful feedback, their endless patience in repeating or explaining anything we were concerned about or didn’t understand and their endless energy and effort throughout the selling process. They even managed to make it enjoyable at times!
We enjoyed the ongoing contact with them and now regard them as friends and would recommend them to anyone and everyone who has a property to sell.
Exceptional Agents - We highly recommend Renate and Daniel. They are very professional and have gone the extra mile in a difficult market. We value their opinion and are very grateful for the advice and guidance they have given.
Renate was very knowledgeable and professional, had great communication skills with both myself and the buyers and always gave honest feedback. She was always available and always prepared to listen. I have no recommendation in recommending Renate
Purchasing a property can be daunting and stressful, however this was not the case when we recently bought ours through Daniel and Renate. They were great to deal with. They were prompt, efficient, reliable and very straight up. They didn’t muck around and play games and were very respectful to us as the buyer. I am not surprised they sell so many houses. They are an excellent team.
We found selling our section with Leonie pain free. Leonie suggested making a short video using a drone (at no added expense to us) and organized clearing the section using a local contractor. We found Leonie to be very professional and knowledgeable and she kept us updated throughout the whole process even out of hours and public holidays we could not have asked for more.
Enjoyed having Leonie as an agent, she is caring, efficient and has good local knowledge . I highly recommend to anyone who is thinking of purchasing a property or land in Mangonui or neighbouring areas. Thanks Leonie
We found that Leonie was great to deal with and she went the extra bit to make it work. Anytime of the day or night she was quite happy to talk to us.
Leonie’s approach to selling the property was professional, energetic and enthusiastic, with 100% dedication and commitment. We are very pleased we chose Leonie to sell our property. We definitely recommend Leonie Mateer to sell your property. She will get the job done.
We were very impressed with Renate. We had been trying to sell our house for several years with no luck. We had almost given up when we contacted Renate. However, Renate came in with a fresh attitude and mindset to sell the property and was successful. We also found Renate easy to talk to and she always had a positive attitude. Highly recommended.
An Efficient agent who, not only had good ideas but also listened.
Good communication which lead to a quick and easy sale.
My experience with Renate was great..she gave me the best advise and always answered or returned my calls immediately. She is positive, proficient and knowledgeable. Renate is a people person and is able to explain details in an easy manner. I definitely recommend her to anyone wanting to sell a house.
Fantastic service and always with a smile
We were introduced to Renate when we looked at the house above ours that she was marketing. From the very start, Renate’s communication with us was outstanding. This is something very important to us and we appreciated being kept up to date with every detail of the sale. We were in a multi-offer situation so her communication skills became even more important. We never felt like we were being left out of the picture. She explained the multi-offer details to us very clearly and thoroughly. She was always clam and always available for us to call and discuss things with. I have no hesitation in recommending Renate as an agent whatsoever.
We recently purchased a property in the far north through Yvette Davies. Yvette was most helpful and kept in contact through the process achieving a great outcome for us, we would be happy to use Yvette again if needed.
We were very satisfied with the results and the performance of Alan Broadbent who recently handled the sale of two properties for us. From the first meeting with Alan, his understanding of the market and his suggestion re a marketing plan, the regular contact and reports during the selling process, and the end result, we felt we certainly had the right man for the job. Alan is very professional and certainly took the stress of selling away from us. Well done Alan.
Alan has recently completed a successful house sale for our family.
During this process we found Alan to be the consummate professional at all times, as well as being warm friendly and approachable he has also been prepared to go the extra mile without question. His straightforward honest approach to things helped in keeping it real and reduced the stress levels.
We are all now proud to consider Alan a family friend and you would certainly be very hard pressed to find a more straight up and genuine Kiwi Gentleman. He most definitely gets this family’s seal of approval.
“Daniel and Renate Ochse of One Agency handled the sale of our home and income (orchid business) in Waipapa.
From the outset, they told us “they worked for the vendors” and at every step of the way, we found that to be absolutely true, as they communicated with us regarding every enquiry and offered feedback immediately after a prospective buyer viewed the property. They acted with professional integrity in all aspects of the sale, from presenting us with an accurate market appraisal, liaising and negotiating with prospective buyers and organising the contractual details, including liaising with solicitors on both sides of the sale and purchase agreement. Once a conditional contract was in place, they didn’t just leave us in the dark in terms of the progress on the conditions, but because buyer enquiry continued, they organised a backup in the event that the first contract fell through. As often happens with conditional agreements, the conditions of the first contract failed to be satisfied, but we were happily able to go straight to the backup, which turned out to be the best offer.
We have already gladly recommended Daniel and Renate Ochse of ONE Agency to others wanting to sell their properties and will continue to do so and will have no hesitation in listing with them again when next we have a property to sell.”
We could not have been happier with the outcome. Daniel and Renate accommodated the sales process with multiple viewings over a 4 day period which created a competitive environment maximising our sales price. We now have a lovely family moving into the neighbourhood.
If you are thinking of selling we would recommend you give them a call.
Yvette listened to our needs, she presented a property to us which was above our expected purchase price, however upon viewing the property, it was everything we wanted.
We would have not hesitation in recommending Yvette.
We would like to sincerely thank you for your effort in the sale of our property, it has been a pleasure dealing with you,with an awesome result for all!
We used Daniel and Renate Ochse and One Agency to sell our property recently.
We were very impressed with the work that they did. They explained everything very clearly and kept us informed in a regular and detailed manner. They also facilitated the auction with Daniel as a very professional auctioneer. We would highly recommend using their agency.
A few months back my husband and I decided it was time to purchase a property in the Bay of Islands. During the arduous task of searching we were fortunate enough to come across Yvette Davies.
We found Yvette to be one of those real estate agents you just dream about. Yvette listens, is non pushy, doesn’t send you on a wild goose chase, you give her the’ brief’ and she goes away and works the ‘magic’.
In a very difficult market with ‘listings’ being in very short supply she came up with the perfect house for us to purchase and made the whole transaction very stress free.
Yvette is extremely professional and if you are selling or buying we would highly recommend her.
I engaged Yvette Davies to market and sell my property. From the word go Yvette did a fantastic job in the marketing and bringing clients to my property. Not only did she do this but went out of her way to help me get compliance, which I didn’t have.
Yvette was of great support and guidance throughout this, which was beyond her call of duty. I highly recommend Yvette as a sales person and believe she is one of the best real estate agents I have dealt with. Yvette will go the extra mile to help her clients.
