In terms of selling the properties we could not speak more highly about the service that Chris and his wife provided to us in selling our properties. From start to finish the process was handled seamlessly and very professionally. The diligence in chasing up any prospective clients was to be commended. The diligence in carrying out a number of open homes in a very time efficient manner was certainly most appreciated. It is noted that Chris did little things like when the property came to the final sign off date and final inspection and a number of light bulbs were missing in one of the properties. He went out and he purchased some more. He put them in so that the settlement could go ahead. I think this reflects the way that he consistently went forward in trying to do the best for us and making the process for us vastly smoother. Once again we re-iterate our appreciation and thanks.
Chris is a local through and through having grown up in Whakatane and being actively involved in sports clubs and the community.
With an early career in the Police, trust, honesty and integrity is vitally important to him, which goes hand in hand with client care and attention to detail.
Since Chris commenced real estate in 2004 he has attained his AREINZ qualification and is an accomplished Auctioneer, also catering for many charity auctions in our community and beyond.
His drive and tenacity, partnered with excellent negotiation skills to ensure a fantastic outcome for his clients and ongoing repeat and referred business.
Chris is joined in real estate with his wife Arlene, a licensed salesperson with a wealth of experience, offering a team approach and combined 50 years experience, ensuring a point of contact is always available.
If you are looking for skilled, dedicated agents, trust Chris and Arlene to lead the way.
Outside of work, you can often find Chris and Arlene hiking in many of the popular bush walks on our doorstep or having a hit of tennis.
Some of my happy clients
We looked at appointing Chris Robson after being referred to him by a friend who had used his service previously. I found Chris and his team professional throughout our dealings from the initial enquiry to the settlement of the sale. He kept us informed throughout the process and stuck to his conviction in trying to get us a price within his appraisal range, despite lower estimates from other agents. Our property was a bit unique and there were a few challenges to get the sale settled. During this process he continued to run open homes and take enquiries and possible offers from other buyers with regular updates to us. I would recommend him to others looking at selling their home.
Many thanks for all your hard work to get his property sold. We cannot recommend you highly enough both in your professionalism and full communication with us all the way through this journey.
We found him professional, easy to deal with, good at keeping in contact with us and importantly he did what he said he would do. I would happily use his services again if selling in Whakatane
Many thanks for the lovely surprise, much appreciated. I'm so glad the sale went through so promptly and all hiccups ironed out okay. All the best with your business. You are the best!
Brian and I would like to thank you so much for working so hard to sell our James Street house and regularly keeping us informed on how things were going towards the sale. We really appreciated your dedication and also the lovely gifts.
What we were looking for in an estate agent was honesty, reliability and integrity. We were initially very pleased with dealing with Chris but as time went on, we then began to realise that the professionalism showed by Chris was of an extremely high standard. If we had questions that needed answering they were always answered in a very honest professional way. We have no hesitation in Recommending Chris Robson as the Real Estate agent one should consider Strongly when either buying or selling real estate in Whakatane.
From the time Chris did an appraisal he was very committed to selling our home in the quickest time. Two weeks later an offer came in and the sale went through. Chris was extremely professional with advice and was in contact daily. We would have no problem in recommending Chris to anybody if they want a quality Real Estate Agent.
Right from the start Chris gave us a good and trustworthy feeling of dealing with a professional in the real estate industry. Chris was fully committed to ensure that our property was sold as soon as possible, which resulted in a sale after 4 months of being on the market. Being a gentleman in all aspects, Chris always kept us informed during the whole time of marketing, with supplying hard copies of every activity in respect of our property every week, feedback of open home viewers, telephone calls and internet activities, etc. Also meetings between Chris and ourselves when required were held, on request by Chris and/or ourselves. Chris is a very honest and trustworthy person and he will go the extra mile to ensure the client's property is sold in the shortest possible time. I do not hesitate to recommend Chris Robson as a real estate agent in all aspects of advising and marketing any property anywhere in New Zealand.
David and I would like to take this opportunity to again thank you for recommending 27 Riverside Drive Whakatane to purchase. We did have other real estate agents who gave us other properties to view, but you took the extra time to show us what we wanted. Time was of the essence, our property in Kawerau had sold in just 8 weeks - so we really needed somewhere to live. The presentation and your ability to show us various homes, at a competitive time - price wise, proved to us that you were with us not only for the job satisfaction but to ensure that we as your clients were satisfied with each property we viewed as a potential purchase. We have been in our new house for 3 weeks and are still excited at the prospect of coming home after work and just enjoying our place. As a 'Professional', I would not hesitate to recommend Chris Robson as your real estate agent.
On behalf of my brother and myself, I wish to convey our sincere thanks to the dedication that Chris Robson showed us during the recent sale of our property. Chris was extremely professional with his approach and with the advice he offered us and also the questions he answered for us. At no time was there any pressure - only guidance. Therefore we have no hesitation in recommending Chris to anybody wanting only the best in a Real Estate agent.
Thanks for the very professional way you've handled the sale of Mum's property. I had expected to have to spend a lot of time helping to manage the process, but this wasn't necessary. Mum grew in confidence through the marketing period, and, far from being stressed by the process, has enjoyed it hugely and has come through it feeling more sociable and in control than she has for some time. Your extra help with potential obstacles - referring the solicitor, someone for the garden and even the carrier has been very much appreciated and has made things run smoothly. We're satisfied that we made a very good choice when we decided that you were the person to handle the sale. As real estate professionals ourselves, we'll be delighted if our salespeople reach your standard.
I cannot thank you enough for how well you worked for us. You took over the selling of Mum's house on the spur of the moment, a Sunday if I recall. You did an inspection while I was there and were keen to sell the property when the other agency expired. You took this over and changed the advertising and gave advice on the market value etc to generate a sale. You were enthusiastic and very diligent and kept us informed at all times. Buyer found, Fun began - Negotiations!!!! You kept in contact the full time throughout the proceedings. We are very pleased with your handling of this matter, in fact when it came to the sale of my daughters property we recommended you to her. You performed that duty in a difficult situation admirably. Your manner and professionalism will remain with us forever.
We decided to sell our house situated in Appenzell Drive, which we placed into the hands of Chris Robson. We found over the period it took to reach a successful conclusion that we had fortunately chosen a highly professional real estate salesperson. At all time Chris presented himself a being a man of the highest calibre, both from a professional and personal view point. Through his perseverance and sound advice on all matters relating to the sale a satisfactory conclusion was reached between all parties. We would recommend Chris's services to anyone wishing to have a top class Real Estate professional - without hesitation.
