He is only too happy to discuss any part of the marketing options and sale process available to you in this rapidly changing market place.
I commissioned Andrew Horrox to sell my rental property in Matua in February 2016. It was the first time I had sold a property. Being a meticulous decision maker, I considered a range of agents...and Andrew immediately stood out as someone I could trust.
Initially, the sale of my property seemed straight forward given the buoyant market, but unfortunately, a positive meth test changed everything. Instead of selling within weeks, both Andrew and I embarked on a journey lasting nearly 8 months before the property was eventually sold at auction. As I was based in Christchurch, I needed someone in Tauranga to oversee the decontamination, testing and reinstatement of the property. Andrew took on this additional role, and was brilliant...eventually achieving a great result. I would have been absolutely stuffed without Andrew’s dedication, adaptability, knowledge and professionalism throughout this very long ordeal.
When I look back at the ups and downs of this roller coaster ride, which was undoubtedly one of the toughest times of my life, the best decision I made...was hiring Andrew Horrox to sell my property. Andrew really is a genuine good guy, someone who will weather any storm, and someone that will work extremely hard to get the very best price for your property.
Mr Andrew Horrox acted for us in the sale of our Matua home that culminated in the acceptance of an offer a week before the property was due to be sold at auction. We were most impressed by his enthusiasm and expertise from our very first meeting with him. His vigorous pursuit of prospective purchasers was in no way diminished when we rejected an excellent offer he obtained early in the sales campaign. Continuing to work tirelessly for us he finally obtained a tender we could not possibly refuse.
His courtesy and consideration immensely assisted us to survive the trauma attending the sale of a much loved home of over twenty years. He kept us informed daily of the progress of his work and gave us ample warning of any impending inspections organised by other members of the Eves team. The successful outcome in this emotionally stressful period in our lives is solely due to his hard work and experienced professional guidance.

We approached five different real estate agents to appraise our house, the contrast in the quality and professionalism of the agents was vast. In the end we chose Andrew Horrox because he was honest, friendly, professional and above all, his knowledge of the market in the Otumoetai area was far greater than anyone else’s. In addition his sense of humour made the stressful process of selling our home fun and he patiently answered all of our questions no matter how small or trivial.
Andrew’s knowledge of recent sales in our area enabled us to accurately price our property. This combined with a fantastic marketing programme meant that the day after our first open home we had 3 offers and were able to get an unconditional offer that was very close to our asking price. This exceeded even our wildest expectations and we feel that Andrew’s positive attitude was a big contributor to this.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Andrew Horrox to sell your house. For us he achieved a price that exceeded our expectations in a time frame we hadn’t even dreamed of. Hopefully he can do the same for you, good luck.

Very difficult, useless agents, unrealistic vendors and rising prices. But don’t be alarmed there is hope and his name is Andrew Horrox. He is honest, reliable, available and keeps you informed. He has found me a house after 3 months of searching and feeling that the day would never arrive. I stuck with Andrew and gave up on the useless, time wasting, inexperienced agents from all the other firms. I think of him now as not an agent but as a friend who I will recommend to all I know that are house hunting.
I write this to show my enormous appreciation to Andrew Horrox who came reliably recommended to me in the first instance. Andrew proved to be an outstanding representative on our behalf. Due to the nature of our circumstances, the sale of our property had all the hallmarks of becoming an enormously stressful experience. Andrew handled the whole process with sound professionalism coupled with his caring and helpful manner.
His personable approach, serious commitment, honesty and integrity continually shone throughout the whole procedure. Andrew presented us with all offers knowledgeably and kept us informed every step of the way up until the sale. As Andrew initially came highly recommended to me, I so in turn have no hesitation in recommending Andrew Horrox to anybody who is looking for a genuine dedicated professional wit top marketing skills. Thank you so much Andrew.
