    Stephen was so easy to deal with, we received outstanding support and true sensitivity throughout the process of selling our much loved property. He was very respectful to our family and mindful of our busy schedules, always working in with us. He kept us informed at all times and was incredibly professional with a very kind and friendly manner. This enabled us to feel like he was only working for just us! He made us feel like we were his one and only clients and that was so much appreciated as we know we were only one of the very many on his books !!! Stephen is a very knowledgeable, approachable and trustworthy agent and we would definitely recommend him to anyone. Thank you Stephen for your professional and motivated approach that has resulted in the "sold sign" happening on our home way sooner than we anticipated.

  • Maurice Beuth & Daphne Marshall-Beuth

    Stephen is an amazing person always on the ball and completely trustworthy I would recommend him to anyone.

  • Craig & Melissa Smith

    Stephen and Lynn both offered a friendly professional service. Their great communication made the process of house viewings and open homes so easy which is so important with two young children. We felt so well informed with any progress that had been made. Absolutely nailed the communication and professionalism which are both critical when selling a home. Appreciated the understanding of having two young children! Stephen and Lynn were both great with our boys and factored busy family times in for open home and viewing times. Thank you!

  • Graham & Diane Webb

    We found Stephen to be very easy to communicate with, was quick to return any calls or texts, and had a good knowledge of the local market. He did not make any promises he could not keep. What I found helpful, and comforting, was when Stephen rung shortly after each open home or viewing to let us know about the numbers of people going through and hearing their comments. We got the information soon after and did not have to wait and wonder what was happening.

  • Amy & Michael Dunn

    Stephen is highly recommended by my wife and I, he has always been professional and kept in contact. I think he is an excellent role model for other agents.

  • Paul Macaulay

    We have found Stephen to be very professional and has a wealth of real estate knowledge. This is the second property he has sold for us in the last twelve months and he has worked very hard to achieve our price expectation and has ensured a seamless transaction both times. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to the industry.

  • Kay Garvan

    I would certainly have no hesitation to recommend Stephen for buying or selling properties in the future. From my point of view, it was a hassle free sale with fantastic communication throughout. Working from home it was imperative to have prior warning of pending clients coming through. I very much appreciated that this was honoured. Many thanks for your professionalism Stephen.

  • Kiri Powell

    We found Stephen to be very upfront, honest and realistic throughout the duration of the sale of our property. Given that we were operating from Perth in Western Australia, and consequently a 5 hour time difference to NZ, the lines of communication with Stephen were excellent and he was readily available to speak with us, even late into the evening at times. His passion for his work and dedication to his clients far exceeded our expectations and we are extremely grateful to him (and his family, who I imagine often have to work around the disruptions the real estate profession can bring) for his willingness to accommodate our personal situation. We cannot recommend Stephen highly enough to prospective sellers.

  • Andrew Larkin

    We found that Stephen's greatest strength was that he very approachable. Stephen was able to deal with our inquiries in a calm and professional manner. His pricing of the property was spot on and we believe this helped us to gain a positive result.

  • Andy Keen

    While using Stephen as our agent I have found him to be very thorough, courteous, friendly & professional. Whenever we needed to get in touch with him he was always available. I believe that Stephen goes/went above & beyond what I expected from a Realty Agent. His communication skills are brilliant & I have no hesitation in recommending him to any future buyer or seller. In my opinion there are Real Estate Agents & then there is next level, Stephen Robertson.

  • Marilyn Normanton

    We are very pleased with the way the sale of our property was conducted, the speed of the sale, and the price achieved. Stephen, and indeed the rest of the sales team at LJ Hooker, were very proactive in bringing genuine potential buyers through our property and we felt that they were working very hard on our behalf. The advice and guidance that Stephen gave us was always sound and made the whole process less stressful than it might have been. We have both bought and sold properties through Stephen and wouldn't go anywhere else now.

  • Hayden Wylie

    Stephen was fantastic to work with always responded to our messages quickly and was professional at all times. We felt like we had the best service from him and would have no hesitation recommending him to our friends and family members. We would definitely use Stephen again to sell or buy a house from.

  • Adrienne Barton

    I have bought and sold quite a few houses. Stephen is the best real estate agent I have worked with. I sold a house in Oamaru but lived in another town; Stephen's helpfulness and communication were excellent and made the whole process painless.

  • Annastacia Barclay

    Stephen is well known in the Waitaki region - and for good reason. I was fully prepared for my property to take quite a while to sell however Stephen had it sold within 8 weeks. He maintained excellent communication throughout and always made himself available when needed. I was talking to a friend recently and she was talking about how Real Estate Agents can be really hard to deal with. I told her unfortunately I couldn't relate to that as each time I have sold and bought property I have dealt with Stephen so I have had nothing but success! Naturally I recommend him to everyone that I know is in the market to sell.

  • Rowan Park and Sharon Murcott

    We are very pleased we chose Stephen to market our property. He was very motivated and professional in his approach and sold the property sooner than we expected at a price more than we expected. We would definitely use his services again and recommend him to others.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Stephen to anybody when it comes to selling or buying a property, he stressed to us that he is working 24/7 and can be contacted at any time, which we did do and was no problem what so ever. Stephen and his team at LJ Hooker in Oamaru are by far more superior to any other real estate agent in the district.

He was very professional in every aspect in our dealings with him and we would definitely recommend his services to anybody wishing to list to sell or buy a property.

    Stephen Robertson is an absolutely straight up agent and down to earth person. He sold us the home ten years ago and recently handled the sale, he done an outstanding job in delicately retaining our tenant throughout the sales process and continuing the tenancy with the new landlord. All of us...sellers, buyers and tenants are keenly aware that we've been treated professionally and ethically throughout the entire experience. We have absolutely no reservations referring Stephen and his company to anyone buying or selling in and around Oamaru.
