I have really appreciated the time, focus and effort that you have made to get the sale finalised. The weekly feedback reports are excellent.
★★★★★ David Steel
Rachel helped us work through the auction/purchase/settlement processes for our property in Papamoa. She was always friendly and approachable and responded quickly to any of our queries throughout. The documentation and any follow-up required was comprehensive and we would certainly call on her services again.
★★★★★ Gavin and Patricia Sowry
We highly recommend Rachel Cole of Harcourts, Papamoa. It was our first time selling a house and lot property in New Zealand and we were very nervous about the process as we didn’t know what to expect. Rachel listened to our objectives and our concerns. She worked very hard and with integrity to address them all and was able to get a great result for us. We were impressed with the detailed feedback we obtained throughout the marketing period. We can certainly recommend her as being an agent who is honest and professional. We will approach her again should the need arise in the future.
★★★★★ Bernard and Desiree Cristobal
Thank you Rachel for marketing my property and getting the best deal possible for me. I appreciate your integrity, honesty and calm approach which is so reassuring when going through the ‘throws and stresses’ of selling a house. I felt you were Zen when I met you, that’s why I chose you. All the best and thank you again.
★★★★★ Amber Sadler
We have found Rachel to be a very dedicated person. She made it easy for us to sell the house and it was a pleasure working with her. She always made you feel at ease and made you feel a valued client. I would recommend her to anyone selling their house. She always kept us up to date with reviews after open homes following day, and a lifesaver at the Auction in helping us. It was our first auction. We appreciate the work she put in and her enthusiasm. I would recommend her to anyone and use her again in the future if need be. Awesome person.
★★★★★ Bob and Shanda Curry
Fantastic service! My new home wasn't a straight-forward sale but Rachel guided me through the process making sure everything was correct and events happened in the right order. Buying a house can be a stressful time , but Rachel's personality and commitment to making sure things are right helped to lessen this load. Thank you Rachel for your wonderful service!!!
★★★★★ Kelly Mackay
Rachel Cole was a pleasure to work with leading up to my recent Auction and subsequent sale of my home at 15 Appaloosa Place, Papamoa through Harcourts Real Estate. Rachel presented my home to many interested potential buyers in the course of several open homes. I found Rachel to be professional in all aspects of the sale process which included weekly marketing reports and personal feedback to me after each viewing. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rachel if you are looking to sell or buy a property.
★★★★★ Mary Knight
Rachel is a pleasure to deal with, at all times very professional, friendly and helpful. She put a lot of time and effort into marketing our home and we appreciated the regular marketing reports and feedback from potential buyers. We most certainly recommend her to anyone wishing to sell their home.
★★★★★ Trevor and Marilyn Parker
Rachel was really lovely to deal with and went the extra mile to make sure settlement went ahead without problems.
★★★★★ Anthony and Kaye Edwards
Rachel supplied us with continuous market updates on the property during our tenure, making her an obvious choice to market the property when the time came. It was a choice we will never regret. The level of information and assistance given to us prior to the auction far exceeded anything we have experienced before. Rachel made selling a property from out of town an entirely stress free situation. We always felt she had our best interests at heart. Achieving a great sale in the middle of a nationwide lock down was icing on the cake. We highly recommend Rachel and have no hesitation in working with her on our next project.
★★★★★ Denis and Josephine Hooper & Pickering
As this was a quick move everything was organized quickly and efficiently, from arranging the open homes and arranging the auction, which we did not do, the pre auction offer was a good one so everything was arranged from there. It made our move easy. Rachel and everyone else involved were so easy to deal with.
★★★★★ Linda and Spencer Lawson
We both brought and sold with Rachel, her professionalism and communication was out standing and she produced fast results keeping us informed all the way. A great asset to Harcourts.
★★★★★ Julie and Roland
Excellent service from start to finish, regular updates, prompt response and reply to our queries.
★★★★★ Santhosh and Jean
Efficient and friendly.. great communication. We felt as though we were really being looked after. Rachel was amazing, she provided regular updates and made it all so easy. She was always very easy to get hold of and answered any questions we had almost immediately.
★★★★★ Valerie Hughes
Rachel went beyond our expectations and was able to secure us a fantastic result for us.
★★★★★ Andrew and Jenny Watts
Set and Forget as Rachel literally does everything. Best service I have received in my life which was backed by results! Rachel's the complete package.
★★★★★ Eugene Benadie

★★★★★ Brian and Vivien Peters
Wow! Looking for someone who’s going to work for you??? I would highly recommend Rachel Cole, Harcourts Papamoa. Rachel is very professional in both her appearance and her job, but at the same time shows a gentle side. Rachel works well to keep you informed with her amazing communication skills and gives you an air of confidence. Working with Rachel was an amazing experience, I truly enjoyed every minute. Thank you so much Rachel, you were brilliant ad I want to wish you all the best for the future.
★★★★★ Kaye Hatfall
When it came to selling our house, Rachel was our first pick for lots of reasons and did not fail to deliver! For one, she appraised the house a few years back and ensured I received updated appraisals quarterly based on the most recent sales in the area. Rachel knows the Papamoa market inside and out and ensures you receive professional and informative service that takes all the stress out of selling. She provides peace of mind that you will get the best result the market can provide and makes sure you are in control o f the process. If we had to do it again, we wouldn’t change a thing! With a swift and effective campaign that resulted in the hammer dropping in the auction room, Rachel made us into very satisfied sellers.
★★★★★ Jo Drinkwater
Highly Satisfied and Impressed Just a short note to thank ‘Rachel Cole’ and the Harcourts team for such a great result with the marketing and sale of our home in Papamoa. We found selling the home through Rachel a very positive and easy process from the start to the final sale at auction. The Harcourts team were so professional, courteous and really did make the overall process straight forward and hassle free while achieving such a great sale price through auction. Many thanks again Harcourts.
★★★★★ Brian
Rachel came highly recommended when it came time to sell our property in Papamoa. She knew the market very well and suggested that we go to auction. The property was tenanted but Rachel assured me that she had sold property with tenants before and that she would work with them to make this as easy as possible. Rachel was true to her word and got the tenant onside with no problems at all. I can’t recommend Rachel more highly as she was very professional, was always just a phone call away and the best part was the campaign went exactly as she had planned. She was open and clear throughout and we can’t be more pleased with the result getting far more for the property than we anticipated. We will be using Rachel again in the future and wish her the best.
★★★★★ Daryl Broughton
Our dealings with Rachel have been impeccable. She has been 100% professional as well as wonderfully personable from our first to last contact. Thanks for doing such a great job of selling our house! You were so helpful and proactive the whole way through and we were totally blown away by the outcome. Thank you SO much Rachel for getting such a great result for us!
★★★★★ Arthur and Dorrie Warner
I cannot recommend Rachel highly enough. She is professional and knowledgeable, but more importantly, genuine and honest. Selling during lockdown brought various challenge but Rachel remained calm and positive at every stage, which was so reassuring for me during an uncertain time. Thank you Rachel, for making this happen or me and my kids.
★★★★★ Gemma Thomas
Rachel is a pleasure to deal with, at all times very professional, friendly and helpful. She put a lot of time and effort into marketing our home and we appreciated the regular marketing reports and feedback from potential buyers. We most certainly recommend her to anyone wishing to sell their home.
★★★★★ Trevor and Marilyn Parker
I would be very pleased to recommend you as an agent. We have been very pleased with the friendly yet professional manner in which you have handled every detail of the marketing to the final sale of our home. At each stage you listened to our requests while giving sound advise and have always given us the confidence to know that we were in control and that you were working with us for a satisfactory conclusion.
★★★★★ Gary and Maureen Coley

★★★★★ Mary Knight
I first heard from Rachel through an Email where she introduced herself and sent me information on what was happening in the Property Market in the area. At this time I was not interested in selling. Rachel stayed in touch in a friendly unintrusive manner. As my circumstances changed and my property was an investment I decided to put my house on the market. I had no hesitation in getting in touch with Rachel. From the very beginning Rachel was fantastic. As I lived out of the area Rachel handled the tenants in the house with compassion and diplomacy. Rachel's Marketing skills and performance were always very professional and friendly. I have no hesitation in recommending Rachel to future Vendors.
★★★★★ Christine Jelicich
We wish to submit a letter of recommendation for Rachel Cole of Harcourts for the wonderful service she provided us. Over the last 3 months Rachel has been outstanding in her help and support to us in this major decision of selling our home. Rachel has listened intently to our wishes and has provided us with excellent service and priceless advice and bringing us the result we required. We would highly recommend Rachel to anyone considering buying or selling a home and thank her very much for everything she has done for us.
★★★★★ Grant and Bev Absolom
Just a note to say thank you very much for what is some of the very best follow up by a real estate agent I have come across in my time buying and selling properties here in Papamoa.
★★★★★ Dennis and Suzanne Phillips
Thank you Rachel, we appreciate how you managed the whole process and kept us informed along the way. you've done a great job.
★★★★★ Sue Henderson
We cannot fault our Agent. Communication is everything and we always knew what was going on. We were absentee Vendors so relied on our agents prompt feedback. She was also great with organising and liaising with maintenance contractors when needed. Wouldn't hesitate to use Rachel again.
★★★★★ Tim and Kat Horsbrugh
I can only speak for Rachel Cole and not for Harcourts generally or other staff members at Harcourts. Our contact was with Rachel Cole only and she was at all times professional and outstanding in her handling of our sale.
★★★★★ Raechel and Gregory Pedrotti
Rachel went above and beyond for us in every way. We had moved to a different area and had a lengthy settlement date. Rachel looked after organising lawns, post and plumbers etc taking any pressure from us. We would totally recommend Rachel to sell your property
★★★★★ Grant & Jane
A+ service (and after service) with a smile. Rachel was excellent right from the start. She took time to explain the process and walk us through everything as a seller. Also organized a great photographer, produced a very nice script and video. If you want profile, professional service and your house sold you need to have a chat to Rachel. We didn't sell initially at Auction but kept on with open homes at the advice of the agent and saw results within just a few weeks. A+ service (and after service) with a smile.
★★★★★ Shawn and Massayo
Very happy purchaser. I'm rapt with the purchase of my new home. Rachel was a great negotiator in a tough market. Her professionalism, knowledge and communication were excellent.
★★★★★ Rachael Pedrotti
I have been in property investment for over 20 years buying and selling many houses all over the country. Rachel has kept me in the loop with market values and sales in Papamoa for several years so when it came time to sell in Papamoa there was only one person to call on, Rachel Cole. Not only knowledgeable of the area but also my style of house to sell. Living in Christchurch posed a few issues with getting the house prepped for sale but Rachel sorted everything without fuss, from lawns to carpet to staging to electrical…just about everything. Thank you, Rachel, the hardest working agent I’ve ever worked with.
★★★★★ Andy Young
Great, professional and friendly. Rachel was very professional, knows the market well, has excellent communication skills and is very pleasant to be around. She took us through the whole journey with confidence and her advice was very helpful.
★★★★★ Lenka and Nate
Great Real Estate Agent. Rachel helped us through the whole process, which made it a lot easier for us to make crucial decisions in purchasing the house. I would highly recommend Rachel.
★★★★★ John and Les
Purchasing with the wonderful Rachel Cole. I purchased a property via Rachel and I cannot recommend her highly enough. She was informative, caring and, whilst not only representing the vendor well, showed excellent duty and care to me as a purchaser. Rachel's communication is excellent; keeping in contact every step of the way. Should you want a caring, conscientious agent to represent you in the sale of your property, Rachel is one of the best; you'll be in safe hands! Personally. thank you, Rachel! You have been amazing!
★★★★★ Sarah Dodson
Very positive experience. Rachel had all the answers and documents at her fingertips, nothing was a problem. I don’t know when she has time for a private life! Very professional and dedicated.
★★★★★ Rob and Sue Shimmin
Positive approach, positive outcome. We were so fortunate to have Rachel as our marketing agent. Her commitment and communication were paramount. Consequently, she made us feel special as I am sure she would also do for potential buyers. Thank you, Rachel, for all your hard work.
★★★★★ Jocelyn and Paddy
Local Papamoa Agent. Knowledgeable agent with a “can do” attitude.
★★★★★ S and J Hall
Great experience. Appreciated your communication
★★★★★ First home buyer
Bought in lockdown from Auckland via FaceTime. Great experience, very good with responses to enquiries. This deal was tricky in a sense there were a few variables that needed clarifying, but Rachel went above and beyond. Happy to recommend to other Aucklanders looking to buy outside of Auckland and escape this madness of inept government from the PM down…Rachel on the other hand was fantastic!
★★★★★ James
Professional and friendly agent. Really good experience using Rachel. We can recommend her if you are buying/selling a property. Lots of feedback following the open homes, we were kept up to date throughout the entire process.
★★★★★ Bevan and Michelle
Warm, professional and hard working. Rachel is now our 'go to' agent, we wouldn't use anyone else. Her knowledge, integrity, communication and availability are second to none. We trust Rachel completely; she doesn't make unrealistic promises but works so hard to get you the best possible price for your home and the marketing is amazing. Rachel consistently kept us updated with any interest and negotiating etc and we never felt like we were left hanging. Don't hesitate to list your property with Rachel, you won't be disappointed.
★★★★★ Jules and Roland (2x Vendor)
Direct, honest and tenacious. Our first contact with Rachel was through an unsolicited email valuation on our rental property touching base and advising that she was available to market when we were ready to sell. Subsequent email valuations followed every three months over the next four years which to us showed her absolute commitment and dedication to her chosen profession, culminating in our choosing to list with her for a very successful outcome, all due to Rachel's attention to detail, great communication and knowledge of the market.
★★★★★ Sue Phillips (2x Vendor)
Short and Sweet! Our dealing with Rachel was just that - short and sweet. Rachel made the process of buying our new home simple, easy and very quick. We appreciated her commitment to both the vendor and ourselves ensuring we were all happy when the negotiations were complete. I highly recommend contacting Rachel for your next home sale or purchase.
★★★★★ Mary
Amazing agent WOW. Selling a property when your not in the region isn’t an easy proposition. I selected Rachel to sell my property at Papamoa as a result of her very visible sales success and longevity in the business. WOW !! What a master stroke. Sales success in a tough market is never easy, and to get a sale result in under six weeks is a triumph. A testimony to her wide list of contacts and her ability to communicate so well. She has gone far beyond all expectations or possibly what another agent may do. From liaising with my tenants to getting things sorted around the property prior to settlement, Rachel has always offered her assistance or thoughts on what was needed to make for an easy transition through the settlement process. I can’t thank her enough for the effort and support she has given.
★★★★★ Lane
Such a delight! Rachel is a friendly and dedicated professional who made our experience of buying our first house in New Zealand a really straight forward and positive experience. Rachel is helpful, responsive and created a relaxed and comfortable environment for us at auction, to achieve our property goal. Rachel has been a pleasure to work and we would highly recommend Rachel in the future!
★★★★★ Janelle
Hard to beat! Even before we gave Rachel the task of selling our property we have always been impressed with her friendly and professional approach. Every one we spoke to before asking Rachel to list our property said we were listing with a very respected agent. The reputation has been proved right. Well done Rachel
★★★★★ Yvonne and Jack
Choose Rachel. I don't really have enough adjectives to describe how perfectly Rachel managed the sale of our property. With a turning market Rachel was spot on and we are happy sellers. I met Rachel by chance (fortunately) and we did our diligence and spoke with other agents and companies, but Rachel was the clear standout across the board. A total hardworking professional - we are very grateful. Choose Rachel
★★★★★ Richard & Julie Gilligan
Rachel is a superstar! Rachel was so helpful in our purchase! Her comms were quick, clear and informative. She kept us in the loop throughout the process. She fit around our lifestyle even coming to our house late in the evening for signatures on documents. Buying a property is significantly stressful and Rachel was so professional, helpful and really lovely throughout, which helped massively reduce stress for us. Thanks Rach!!

Rachel was extremely helpful in the sale of our property, giving us regular feedback from prospective buyers and about what was happening in the market. She conducted open homes on a regular basis with the help of Haycie and backed this up by quickly letting us know how they were attended. The sale process and negotiations were carried out by Rachel with no pressure and eventually concluded with a result we were happy with.
★★★★★ Larry & Sue Pepper
We contacted Rachel to sell an investment property for us, she was prompt, responsive and gave great advice to get the property ready to market. Great communication and so friendly to deal with, property sold easily in a difficult market and new owners very happy to be in their first home before Christmas.
★★★★★ Glenn & Sarah Becker
Rachel Cole was so professional and helpful and achieved a result in a very short time.

She is an agent I would recommend to anyone due to her above and beyond assistance and prompt service and outcomes.

Rachel was very friendly, thorough and efficient in all our dealings. Rachel marketed our property with positivity and efficiency with the housing market being a bit uncertain at this time. The outcome being a sale was great. I would recommend her to people who want an agent to get results.

If I had to do it all again, Rachel would be my first choice! From my first phone call Rachel was kind, easy to talk to and gave a certain reassurance about what was required to sell our Mum's property. Rachel was respectful, light hearted and we always felt as though our best interests were honoured. Rachel achieved quick and pleasing results. Super blessed to have had Rachel and her team. Thank you all. We wish Rachel and Harcourts much prosperity for the future.

Fantastic, efficient and hassle free. Rachel and her team are an asset to have when selling. She was prompt and efficient in getting our Auction started.
