Our Testimonials

What our clients have to say

"I would like to place on record my very sincere appreciation for the job done by Shaun Cosgrave and his team during the process of selling my home.


I had put this house on the market previously, so am in a position to compare the work done by Shaun with other agents.  Shaun put more enthusiasm, effort and sheer hard work into finding a buyer than any other agent in my experience of this property and previous ones.  He was, at all times, available for discussion and advice, and feedback on prospective purchasers was provided to me regularly and clearly.


It has been a pleasure to work with Shaun; he puts a lot of hard work into his role but does not let that get in the way of being courteous and focussed on the client’s needs, and seeing the funny side of life.


I would have no hesitation in recommending Shaun as a real estate agent, and should the need arise in the future I will be back knocking on his door."

"This is to say thank you to Shaun Cosgrave and his team at Harcourts Melville office for their diligence in selling our home in Hamilton. We had sold several houses recently and have experienced the worst of some agents. Not always a good or happy process. Hence we fully appreciated the wonderful service given to us. Shaun was constant in his communication, encouraging and a fund of good information during the selling process.


At no stage did we feel we were not in excellent hands."


- Jo and Michael Ward



"I have used Shaun Cosgrave twice now in the last year, once for the sale of my Mums rental and recently for the sale of one of my own rentals.


I would definitely use Shaun again. He is a no nonsense man, straight up and very familiar with the market. I find because he has a team working for him that everything flows nicely. i.e. there is always good quality communication from his team, from feedback on open homes to the timing of different things that need to be done.


Shaun is a busy man in Realestate but he is always at the forefront of each house he sells and always makes sure he is the face and ears.


Shaun has a number of contacts which I have found very handy. i.e. He has people that dress your house for you with furniture and a team of painters etc. I have made use of both of these contractors when selling. Very reasonable prices and quick with no headaches.


Shaun has the ability to get on with all personalities and I find him a very down to earth man, no nonsense, realistic and highly professional.


He achieved an exceptional price for my recent house sale, so thanks again Shaun and I will catch up with you for a beer at the beach. "

“I do appreciate the fact that you personally provided up to date information with regards to market interest, feedback from viewers and general data on current real estate sales on a daily basis. Furthermore, when a particular strategy had not achieved the desired result you had the confidence to change direction. This whole process does not feel like a business transaction, but leaves me feeling I have a new friend.”
- Jan Kingi
“From the moment you came to do an appraisal to the time you sold the property your commitment and enthusiasm was absolutely flawless. The schedule you put in place for advertising, etc. was done exactly as you had discussed at the time of our sign up agreement. Your staff did a wonderful job to assist you. This is what you would call a real team effort. We are absolutely thrilled with the service we received.”
