6. Negotiation Expertise

Past clients regularly comment on our outstanding ability to negotiate a higher price on their behalf. This often more than covers our fee, and when you engage one of our highly skilled team, you can rest assured that you are going to receive the maximum available price in your market today.

7. Marketing Skills

Our marketing aim is: “To expose your property to the greatest number of prospective purchasers who are in a position to proceed without delay”

Our consistent research into the source of our purchaser enquiry means we can focus our marketing to achieve the most effective results. Our marketing experience ensures that your property will not only look its best, but it will be presented in a way that makes it appeal to the right buyers.

8. Office Locations

While other companies leave the small district centres and try to service them from New Plymouth, McDonald Real Estate Ltd choose to be part of your community by retaining offices in all our provincial centres. We believe this keeps us in touch with you, our customer, and ensures we have a finger on the pulse of what's happening in your market. In fact, McDonald Real Estate Ltd's Head Office in Stratford has been in the same building since the early 1920’s! We take pride in occupying the best sites in each centre, and people know where to find us.

9. Strong Networks

With more than 100 years’ experience in real estate sales, McDonald Real Estate has built a strong and profitable network of business partners. We are extremely proud to be members of the New Zealand Realtor’s Network, which gives us a huge national and global presence. Our reputation and strong family values have made us attractive to other businesses and agencies, and so we are able to utilise these networks to channel buyers that our competitors do not have access to. It also helps to get prime positioning in the many publications we use.

10. We Genuinely Care

Every aspect of our service is closely monitored by our Customer Care entity in order to ensure you get the very best service that's 'more than just talk ... '

We also never take for granted the support we receive and, in turn, 'give back' to Taranaki and our communities through extensive local sponsorships. Our team is 100% local, we live, work and support the neighbourhoods we operate in.
