10 out of 10. Alex Smits was the agent who found our property for us. He had listened to what we wanted and when he found the right farm he called us. He has been incredibly helpful, not pushy in his sales technique and we then bought 2 other sections from him. We have been very happy with his support and service.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             

We found Alex Smits to be a very friendly, polite and helpful person to deal with. He took note of what we were looking for and spent time with us helping us to find the ideal property. He also helped us through the telephone bidding process on auction day which was new to us. We would definitely use him as our agent again and recommend Norris & Smits to others.

I wanted to take the opportunity, to say how much we appreciated the clarity and attention to detail during the writing of the S & P agreement, the experience here was far from pleasant.  We have often said how unfair it seems in some way that you did the most work of all the agents we dealt with and you didn’t get the sale.

Thank you very much for the last 2 sales. It is not always easy to get a decision from the 3 Webb Bros, but you folks with your professional skills and patience did, which set us up for retirement.

Alex did a fantastic job with the marketing of our property. He was always positive about the price we would achieve and that he could sell the property. We acknowledge the huge effort he put in, as it was a challenging property to sell.  We appreciate the effort, and would recommend him as an agent to others.

This is to record that I feel extremely pleased and lucky to have dealt with Alex Smits and Lin Norris of  'Bayleys', regarding a recent and prolonged property purchase.

Throughout the process I have been treated with utmost courtesy,  professionalism  and patience.  I have dealt mainly with Alex Smits on a personal basis .  He has gone out of his way during protracted negotiations to be helpful in every aspect and provide me with detail and all information requested.  He has been prepared to enthusiastically and cheerfully spend significant time visiting the farm on numerous occasions, meeting the vendor and showing us around extensive extra land that was relevant to the transaction. 

I can say unequivocally that it has been a pleasure dealing with Alex and Lin and that they epitomise to me the traditional professional and trustworthy agents that are rare to find.  I sincerely consider that Bayleys have two outstanding and exceptional agents in Northland that I hope I can also do business with in future years.

When Alex came along and offered to market our property we were agreeable as we wanted to move on.  Because we had other agencies over the last two years failing to sell we were a little sceptical of Alex’s claim on selling.  However to our surprise and gratification Alex sold the property after only five weeks from when he began seriously marketing it and at a price that was much larger than we were expecting.  We now mention Alex’s name at any opportunity as the agent to go to when selling rural property.

Thanks Alex for marketing our property to a successful sale.  You worked hard to create interest and it paid off for us, thanks again for your effort.
