Testimonials

Iron Bridge work with you... and for you, they listen and assist...

Iron Bridge act as your advocate, your advisor, your councillor.... That’s really it in a nutshell!

Recently I sold my house in Browns Bay … Having never initiated a house sale before I was completely unsure how to go about the process. Paul and the team at Iron Bridge made the process seamless, and handled the small stuff for me.


We encountered a few hurdles along the way with roofing issues, moisture content in walls, but never once did I feel isolated and alone in the process. Iron Bridge act as your advocate, your advisor, your councillor. Would I have received such service from a larger company… I am not sure I would have…

Iron Bridge work with you… and for you, they listen and assist… They simply work very very very hard for you… That’s really it in a nutshell!

Thank you once again for all your services and a very special thanks to Kirsty Whiting for arranging everything for me so quickly.


I must say she is the best agent I have met so far! She answers every phone call and replies to every text, not like other agents whom I have dealt with in the past and who do not even bothered to reply.


I have been looking for a house for the last 3 months and now finally Kirsty has made it easy for me.

Iron Bridge recommended a marketing strategy to me that they said would help achieve the best possible price.

Well, I was blown away as the final result was sensational - $200,000 MORE than I had expected!

I just wanted to write to say how delighted I am that I was recommended to Adam and Iron Bridge.


From the very start Adam made me feel at complete ease and I had total trust in Adam and his recommendations. Having owned the two properties for 32 years I was naturally a little bit anxious about selling, but he made the process so very easy.


Further, Adam recommended a marketing strategy to me that he said would help achieve the best possible price.  Well, I was blown away as the final result was sensational – you achieved $200,000 MORE than I had expected to receive.


I am so grateful to have met Adam and the team at Iron Bridge. If people are contemplating selling, in my opinion, it is a must they speak with Iron Bridge Real Estate.


Thank you so much.


Graham - Seller

It was a completely smooth process for us

We would not hesitate to recommend Desere to family and friends.

Hi Adam,


I am writing to tell you what a fantastic experience we had with Desere selling our rental property for us.


Right from the first visit with us; where she came prepared with all the information we needed  to set the listing price to the visit when she presented an offer to us she was very professional and competent.


It  was a completely smooth process for us, she gave us a detailed plan of how she was going to market the property and we sold the property at the full asking price in a very short time.


We will also be listing other properties with her and Iron Bridge Real Estate when the time comes. We would not hesitate to recommend Desere to family and friends.

Great communicators in the process of selling my house

I found Sam and Paul to be honest, transparent and great communicators in the process of selling my house. 'Staying in touch' made the choice to use Iron Bridge Real Estate a 'no brainer.

I found Sam and Paul to be honest, transparent and great communicators in the process of selling my house. I was a little apprehensive and nervous when it came to selling my property due to my complete lack of experience in ‘house sales’. Having been introduced to Paul several years earlier with him ‘cold calling’ me regarding a possible sale and then subsequently ‘staying in touch’ made the choice to use Iron Bridge Real Estate a ‘no brainer’. Paul then introduced me to Sam who carried out the process through to sale and took a lot of the tension out of the whole experience.


I would like to thank both Paul and Sam for their efforts here and would not hesitate to use their friendly and professional services again in the future. Thanks guys and all the best for your future endeavours.


Regards

We definitely recommend Jordan Davis and Iron Bridge.

Heena and I are really grateful to Jordan Davis from Iron Bridge Real Estate – she really helped us find our first home in New Zealand.

Heena and I are really grateful to Jordan Davis from Iron Bridge Real Estate – she really helped us find our first home in New Zealand. We really appreciated her efforts in finding the exact property in Christchurch according to our budget and requirements.


We were a bit nervous about buying our first home in New Zealand, but the best part about Jordan was her quick replies, quick solutions and her confidence.


We met so many real estate agents, but Jordan has a unique personality. It felt like a family member was helping us.


We will definitely recommend Jordan and Iron Bridge in the future, and to my friends as well. Best of luck Jordan. Thanks again.

Great Property Manager

Margaret Pitt has been a great property manager

Margaret Pitt has been a great property manager in the time that I have been going through Iron Bridge, I am very happy with the service that she has provided”

Keep it up Iron Bridge!

Our rental agent, Margaret Pitt, was very professional when we inspected the rental for the first time on move in day.

Being tenants, it is not easy getting into rentals these days. When we moved from Hamilton in the beginning of the year, the team at Iron Bridge, Christchurch were really patient dealing with our application as we really wanted to get a property to move into right away! Our rental agent, Margaret Pitt, was very professional when we inspected the rental for the first time on move in day. The inside of the rental was near immaculate with freshly painted walls, clean carpets and bathrooms.  Keep it up Iron Bridge!

Would love to have more homes to sell so that we could retain your services!!

Thank you Eben for going above and beyond with the recent sale of our property.

Thank you Eben for going above and beyond with the recent sale of our property. You were always thoroughly professional in all our conversations (and there were many) particularly these days in dealing with a property where there has been EQC and insurance company involvement. You were courteous, transparent, patient and kept us well informed in every aspect of the inspections and the sale.

Can only highly recommend your service and constructive advice – would love to have more homes to sell so that we could retain your services!!

Again our sincere thanks and appreciation.


John

I did not have to pay any advertising or marketing costs.

The whole process went through very easily and quickly.

I chose to sell my house with Iron Bridge because I did not have to pay any advertising or marketing costs.


Also I would not have to sell by auction and there would be no open homes. The whole process went through very easily and quickly, I was very pleased with the end result.


I found the Iron Bridge team that I dealt with to be very pleasant and competent and would recommend them and their selling methods highly.

Elliott has been a pleasure to work with. Wonderful not having a pushy salesman trying to talk us into anything or give inflated sale price to sign you up, only to knock it down later.


We have recommended Elliott and Iron Bridge to many people already and will continue to do so. Elliott, keep up the great work and you will go far. You are an Asset to Iron Bridge, as you have fantastic people skills and you are a such a lovely person.


We’re so glad to have met you.

The whole team at the Iron Bridge, Upper Hutt branch are amazing!

My rental manager Debbie is awesome. She is friendly, very efficient, thorough, reliable, fair. I doubt you will ever find another rental manager like her

Iron Bridge is the first property management agency I have been with as a tenant.


My rental manager Debbie is awesome. She is friendly, very efficient, thorough, reliable, fair. I doubt you will ever find another rental manager like her. She always treats my family and I with respect and continuously goes the extra mile to ensure that I am looked after. She has definitely set standards very high and I trust her.


Everyone at the Upper Hutt branch are truly sincere. I highly recommend Iron Bridge Upper Hutt and Debbie to anyone who is needing property management.


Thank you so much.

We needed to secure a rental in less than 48 hours, not only did they came out to a property to show us, but also managed to pull it off!

We are incredibly impressed and hugely thankful - can't go wrong with these guys!

We had an ‘interesting’ situation in that we needed to secure a rental in less than 48 hours. Nick not only came out to a property to show us, but also managed to pull it off!

We are incredibly impressed and hugely thankful – can’t go wrong with these guys!


Werner

Renting through Iron Bridge was a pleasure.

They went above and beyond and their communication is fantastic. The best rental experience that I have had to date.

Debbie and Nick were so friendly and helpful. They went above and beyond and their communication is fantastic. They always advised when an inspection was due or if there were tradesmen coming to do some work. The best rental experience that I have had to date. Thank you so much.


Natasha

We were both very impressed.

We will have no hesitation in recommending the team at Iron Bridge and in particular Desere, should any of our friends, family or acquaintances, be involved in either buying or selling a property.

We will have no hesitation in recommending the team at Iron Bridge and in particular Desere, should any of our friends, family or acquaintances, be involved in either buying or selling a property. The same applies if they are in need of a committed property management team.


With particular reference to Desere Girdlestone, a chance phone call developed into a short term, off market, sales agreement to known “As is Where is “clients from her and her colleagues contact lists. Having been in business myself, in a selling environment for over 40 years before retiring, I appreciate the unique requirements which are needed to make a success of a difficult and precarious profession.


Sales people need determination, dedication and organisational skills to survive in the market place. However, in my experience the additional skills required, to stand out, are passion and the sheer enjoyment gained from a successful outcome, which transform a job, to a very satisfying vocation.


Desere has both of those special attributes and I believe she got almost as much pleasure as us from the outcome. Just as importantly she conveyed the impression, which turned into reality, that she was working in our interests to achieve the best possible result for us, remembering that in any sales arrangement, the outcome has to be fair to both parties.


We were both very impressed, that your small team appeared to work closely together to achieve the best result and that, combined with follow ups from support staff and Management, your company delivers a formidable team. Thank you all for a very pleasing result.

Over the last 10+ years they have managed our property, and we highly recommend them as Property Managers

Then it came to selling the property....the prcoess was relatively stress free.

We have been really happy with the team at Iron Bridge over the last 10+ years they have managed our property, and we highly recommend them as Property Managers.


We are now in the position of selling the property and again the team rose to the occasion. The prcoess was relatively stress free for us, the team dealt with the usual hassles you have when selling a property while keeping us well informed along the way.


To Clint our most recent Property Manager, as well as other Managers over the years, Paul our Selling Agent and Adam who manages the business – our grateful Thanks and Best Wishes.  We highly recommend you.

The best estate agent we ever worked with!

My husband and I would really like to give a special word of thanks to Sam. From day one he was very professional, friendly and helpful person and we felt that we could trust him from the start.

He knows his job, he took us through all the details and made sure we understand everything. What is very nice working with Sam is that he responds immediately to our phone calls or e-mails. He is just the best estate agent we ever worked with.


We both feel very comfortable and satisfied with his service.


We will definitely use him and Iron Bridge in future.

I would like to thank especially Eben for his effort

Eben really understand our needs and our financial situation

Thanks for Eben and Iron bridge team for helping us to buy our first home.


We are renting his house for past 2 years and we liked it very much. When I came to know, the owner is planning to sell this house, we indicated to Iron bridge that we like to buy.


Iron bridge gave preference to us before putting in market.


Eben really understand our needs and our financial situation, as our kiwisaver only get matured in November.


He listened our concerns and answers most of our queries by visiting our house whenever he gets time.


He also guided me in most of the process in buying house like building reports, EQC claims etc.


I would like to thank especially Eben for his effort.


Siva & Idhaya

We were thrilled with the results Iron Bridge achieved for us

We chose Eben and the Iron Bridge team because we believed their methods for selling our house would get us the highest possible price and the results speak for themself.

Just a brief note to say how much we appreciate the great service we received from Eben and the Iron Bridge team while selling our property at 6 Ernest Gray Place, Halswell. We were thrilled with the results you achieved for us (a contract more than asking price, and all within 1 week).


We chose Eben and the Iron Bridge team because we believed their methods for selling our house would get us the highest possible price and the results speak for themself.


Even after the contract confirmed Iron Bridge helped us find and secure a rental property for the interim while we are building our new home.


Thank you very much and we do not hesitate in reffering Eben and Iron Bridge to anyone thinking of selling or buying.
