“Scott was the first real estate agent I called. I had noticed ‘SOLD’ signs on properties he had listed in my area. On research I saw he had an equestrian background, and was selling a lot of his listings. After our first meeting I knew he would put 100% effort into achieving the best possible result. And so the journey began . . .under Scott’s guidance we transformed our home into a show place, three weeks of open homes and then a brilliant sale. It is quite remarkable how he makes the whole process enjoyable, he is always enthusiastic but very practical and positive. I am so grateful that I made the decision to go with PGG Wrightson. It is easy to see why Scott has won awards early in his Real Estate Career and I know he is certainly going from strength to strength, I would strongly recommend to anyone wanting to list a property to give Scott a call.”

We would like to thank you most sincerely for the outstanding work that you have done marketing and selling our property. It was a big step for us to sell our house and we found your friendly and approachable manner very reassuring, and this gave us confidence. You took the time to explain things carefully and well so that we understood what was happening at every step of the way and felt in control of the decisions. The marketing around the property was thoughtful and personalised. The wider team, with Peter and Sloane, was fabulous too, very professional and we were very pleased with the outcome. We wouldn’t hestitate to recommend your services to other people looking for an agent.

Who would have thought selling a property could be so stress free whilst getting a result that exceeded my expectations. When Scott suggested doing an auction I was a bit unsure but I trusted Scott 100% so I agreed to a 2 week auction campaign. Scott helped me prepare my house for the open homes. He has a gift for getting the best out of your property, his presentation is beyond belief. Scott explained the process so I knew what was going on at all times. Auction day was fun! Even more fun when I came away with more money than I had hoped for. Scott is a very kind, patient person whom I would strongly recommend in selling your property. Thanks Scott

We chose Scott Borland to help us in the sale of our equestrian lifestyle block in Tamahere. We initially chose him because of his high profile in equine circles, but his performance was better than any other real estate agent either of us have ever retained. Scott is totally passionate about real estate and delivering the best results for his clients. He made himself available to us whenever we needed to talk to him, and was meticulous in his preparation of our marketing strategy. Scott is a pleasure to work with. He is respectful, patient and has a great sense of humour. Scott's work ethic and commitment to obtaining the best possible outcome were of the highest standard. We unreservedly recommend Scott to help anyone sell their lifestyle or rural property.

Alan and I have bought and sold many lifestyle properties over the years. When it came to selling our latest property, we pondered who to choose as our agent. It soon became obvious when I read Scott’s CV. Scott has always been a high achiever in all he has taken on board throughout his career. We were given a very comprehensive marketing appraisal and information pack. We chose not to go through the auction process and within a matter of weeks our property was sold. Even though our property was beautifully presented, it was the extra little attention to detail given by Scott that made the sale stress free. At all times Scott considered our expectations and worked for us. Scott was fun to work with, his enthusiasm was endless. He was always immaculate in his personal appearance and when I think of Scott the words integrity, honesty, enthusiasm, hardworking amongst many more come to mind. Sellers if you want the best outcome for your property choose Scott – there is no one out there like him.

Scott was recommended to us by a family member when we had made the decision to sell our property. Throughout this process, from preparing our property for sale, to the sale of our property and after, Scott has been with us all the way giving us his honest advice, encouragement and truly goes the extra mile to get the best outcome possible. Scott has been the best agent and he will always be at the top of my list to call for any future property purchases or sales.

Many thanks for ensuring the sale of our property was such an enjoyable experience! Really loved your drive and enthusiasm for ensuring our property was at its most saleable position. We did everything suggested – de-cluttered, used a staging company for furniture, had the LIM report and valuation done so all the information was ready for potential buyers. We are sure all of this and your excellent, professional service led to the property being sold successfully at Auction. Many thanks again and you will be the first agent we recommend to anyone considering selling a property!

Adrian and I had a long term vision for our business. This meant buying more land and expanding our current facilities. We purchased more land which meant in order to expand we needed to sell our current home and some land. There was no doubt in our minds who we would use. Scott was the man for the job. We ran our ideas past Scott and we all came up with a plan. The whole idea of selling your home is very daunting and sometimes stressful.. Scott made this process so easy and manageable. If you want someone who puts their heart and soul into your investment, then there is no one better than Scott. We had an absolute dream result with putting our home up for sale. This would not have been possible if it was not for Scotts determination and drive for the best outcome possible we would not be in the position we are today. He has now made all of our dreams come true. Thank you so much :-)

We found Scott to be very caring and helpful with the marketing of our property. We spent quite a bit of time getting our house done up to an appropriate standard. We felt that Scott was excellent with the advice he gave. We trusted all his words of wisdom and followed his ‘formula’ to obtain a great outcome with our sale. We would (and have) thoroughly recommended Scott to others.
