Lee-anne Frew

May 2016

To whom it may concern
When we came to Riverton looking for a house, we decided to call in at First National. Lee-anne was wonderful. We did not have a lot of time as we only had one day to look around. Within a matter of minutes, she had the  keys of  five houses for us to look at. Lee-anne advised us not to look at too many at one time and she was so right, as it gets a bit confusing if you do. We had constant contact with Lee-anne from looking, to choosing our house. It was very reassuring to know that we were working with a real estate agent who didn't just leave us ill-informed. Near the end of us buying our property we had a hiccup with the valuation. Lee-anne actually came up with scenarios for us, so we could get the problem solved quickly.We recommend First National to anyone wanting to buy a house, as they were wonderful. We even got a welcome basket after we moved in!
Thank you First National and Lee-anne for everything you did.
Kind regards
Philip and Wendy

I phoned Lee-anne in February enquiring about 63 Towack St. My husband and I went through it just a few days later and loved it and the view was amazing. Nothing to be done, just put in an offer! Lee-anne came to our home in Invercargill with the paperwork then back to Riverton and about an hour later she phoned to say it was ours!The whole experience was a painless one. Lee-anne was very professional at all times and she really was a pleasure to deal with.  Lee-anne arrived the day we got possession with a basket of goodies and wishing us well for our holiday home. We have both referred friends to her already.Can't be happier.

We found Lee-anne Frew to be very friendly, helpful, courteous and full of really good ideas when it came to selling our house for us.
Awesome thoughts re presentation and also keeping in touch after open home days. Nothing was a problem to her and to be presented with flowers, wine etc after a sucessful sale was a real bonus!
We would have no problem in recommending Lee-anne to any person re:selling their home or business.
Thank you Lee-anne on behalf of Bill and myself.

We strongly recommend Lee-anne as a real estate person. She listens, goes the extra mile for you and also gives you weekly market reports. We looked forward to that and will be recommending her to relatives and friends.

Lee-anne Frew is a well presented agent with a positive and sunny outlook as was the material she used to promote our property.  Her attitude is professional, helpful and thorough.  Lee-anne does not give up on a sale.    As clients we were most impressed with our agent and the outcome she achieved for us.  So much so we are using her skills to achieve another sale.      Graeme and Sandra Hewitt,   22 Shrewsbury Street, Riverton

 

23rd February 2015   I  had the pleasure of meeting Lee-anne , for the first time , in 2012 when I had spent three months living down in Riverton.   I had fallen in love with the area and was looking at property in the area and made contact with her.     Unfortunately I was unable to purchase anything at the time, but Lee-anne was professional and helpful at all times.    In 2014  I decided the time was right to revisit my dream and got in touch with Lee-anne.    After detailing my requirements we had a disscussion, and I told her which properties I was interested in, she was delighted to tell me, they were exactly what she had in mind to show me.    I travelled from Australia and in a short couple of visits, the cottage we both thought suited my needs, turned out to be perfect.    I now own it.   Lee-anne is very intuitive, sensitive and dilligent as a Real Estate sales person, her local knowledge of the area is reassuring and she was able to provide me with everything I needed to satisfy Insurers and Lawyers requests.        It was a stress free and straightforward experience and I would highly, recommend Lee-anne to others, for their next Real Estate experience.                       Georgia Horgan

 

20th February 2015     Lee-anne Frew has been my sales agent through First National Real Estate Riverton. I have been very happy with Lee-anne's services. She has put a lot of effort in to selling my small holiday home, she has had a number of open homes, and has followd up with all potential buyers. As I was mostly away myself, Lee-anne has also kept a guarding eye on my property, and has advised me early if the lawns needed doing or anything else popped up. When I had an issue with water leakage, Lee-anne has not only let me know, but she has also gone out of her way to organise to get it fixed.     Lee-anne has made sure to get me a good price on the house it sold.   I have found Lee-anne a very friendly, bubbly and helpful agent. I would use her services again any time!                                           Marianne Widmer

 

30th May 2014      I recently purchased a lovely house in Riverton for my retirement. Having sold a house previously and a house back about twelve years ago in another district, I was not impressed with real estate agents at all and had gained a very poor impression of them.   I can only express my blessings that I had the most delightful woman Lee-anne Frew from Riverton Real Estate (Guise) Ltd to help me my new home.  Lee-anne could not do enough for me and any queries I had she dealt with quickly.I never found her "pushy" and she was a delight to work with.  Lee-anne, you gave me back belief again that there are good and decent people in the real estate business.       God Bless You        RL Heaps

 

3rd June 2014    Lee-anne Frew was the listing agent for a property we bought in Otautau. She was at all times courteous, helpful, knowledgeable, and keen to assist.  We would thoroughly recommend Lee-anne to anyone wanting to buy or sell a property:  She knows her trade!           PL Hopkins

 

20th February 2014    TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:      We have no hesitatian in recommending Lee-anne to anyone who is wanting to buy or sell in the Riverton district. We have purchased two houses plus some land through her and sold one. On each occasion she has been nothing but professional, listened to our questions and always followed up with answers in a timely manner. We found her to be open, honest and always willing to help to achieve the best outcome for us. If we are in the need of further Real Estate matters we would see Lee-anne.             Donna and Tim

 

10th February 2014 TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN. We first meet Lee-anne in May 2013. We found her to be punctual, and enthusiastic in wanting to sell our house. Every week she would email or phone to let us know how progress was going. We found Lee-anne's communication out standing. She has such drive and determination towards her job. We would definitely recommend Lee-anne to friends and family wanting to purchase property in Riverton. Your Sincerely Paul and Wendy Stirling 

 

62 Rhodes St Waimate Canterbury 7924 31st July 2013 - Testimonial For Lee-anne Frew       To Whom it May Concern We have had the pleasure of knowing Lee-anne Frew, Sales Consultant for First National Real Estate, Riverton for a couple of years now, and she was our Realtor when we sold our house in Riverton in early 2013. We chose Lee-anne to help us sell our house for a number of reasons: we had originally bought our house in Riverton when it was listed with First National Real Estate and we were very impressed with the service of the company and the friendly staff, so it was a natural progression for us to use them when we decided to sell. We immediately liked Lee-anne when she came to inspect our house pre-listing and her open, friendly but professional approach was both impressive and reassuring for us as first time sellers and she did an outstanding job in explaining all the issues involved in the sale and purchase of our property. Lee-anne is organized, efficient, extremely competent, and has a rapport with people. Her communication skills, both written and verbal, are excellent and she is intelligent, capable, knowledgeable and trust worthy, with a relaxed attitude and an easy smile. Everyone we know is simply amazed at how quickly our home sold, especially with the market like it is. You did a great job, Lee-anne, thank you.. We really enjoyed working with you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like any further information.      Sincerely, S Roberts V Cullen Sam Roberts & Vince Cullen ScreenworksNZ  Tel: 03 689 8833 15th July 2013

 

 

My husband and I have done several real estate transactions.   We found it to be a refreshing experience when we invited Lee-anne into our home to perform a valuation, we felt straightaway that we had the guidance and assistance of some-one who knew the market, she paid attention to details and provided an incredibly professional service.   During the sale of our property we found Lee-anne was always there to help with any queries or worries that we had, she would always go that extra mile to reassure us, making the whole process effortless.  We would highly recommend Lee-anne to anybody requiring someone to manage their real estate needs.  She takes the stress out of real estate and makes it an enjoyable experience.       Sandra and Derek Harris

 

9th March 2013       Dear Lee-anne,     Just a brief note to say "Thank you" for your help in finding us the section in Trotter Street. We had been visiting Riverton and attending Open Homes for about 3 years before we finally decided to look for somewhere to buy and then spent several months seriously searching for a good sea-view at a price we could afford. We had all but decided it was futile when, out of the blue, you found us an empty section that not only gave us the sea-view we wanted but also allowed us to (just about!) afford to build a house there. On top of that, you were an absolute delight to deal with - your cheerful and "nothin's too much trouble" attitude made the whole process hassle-free and enjoyable.     We have absolutely no hesitation in unreservedly recommending you to anybody looking for a Real Estate Agent.  Yours most sincerely,     David & Donna North

Jan Wisely of Riverton Real Estate made the selling of my deceased mother's house simple, straight forward and fuss free, at a very difficult time. Jan kept me informed throughout the selling process,of all interested in the property and the sale went through without a hitch and in a very short space of time. I can't speak highly enough of the job Jan did, her professionalism and empathy and have already recommended her to other people who wish to sell their properties.
