What people say about Opes Real Estate
Thank you Slade for being so patient and helpful throughout the entire journey. We loved the home, however, it took longer than our last purchase given our tricky situation. I'd said we'd never seal the deal if it wasn't because of your assistance. Absolutely recommend to other homeowners and buyers.
Slade guided and helped us through the process of buying our first home despite he was hired by the vendor. The communication was great and smooth. Slade was always available to answer, clarify and address all our concerns throughout the entire process. We really enjoyed working with him and he was transparent. We highly recommend Slade for anyone who wants a good buying/selling experience, and we would definitely reach out to him again when we are ready to buy our investment property.
Duncan really went above and beyond for us with this sale. The integrity, time, and effort he spent running through options, statistics and information were second to none. From first contact he was friendly, open, and trusting which we really admired in a real estate agent. Being so transparent was a breath of fresh air. We were amazed at how our house looked on the market and was blown away by the quality of the photos and the presentation of the overall listing. His hard work and ‘drive’ to sell our home really paid off and I would recommend him to everyone we know. Thank you once again Duncan.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks to Slade Hocking at OPES. From the moment I met Slade he was polite and courteous, he took the time to answer my questions thoroughly. He was professional in his approach and nothing was too much trouble. The whole experience with Slade was fantastic - every step of the way! Great customer centric service.
Slade answered all our questions to the best of his knowledge and helped us in securing a wonderful house in a great location. He worked very well as a bridge between us and the vendors. In multiple occasions he came up with great solutions to our concerns and provided middle ground for both parties which was essential for securing this deal. Good luck for all your future endeavours and once again many thanks from us for your service. Cheers
Brilliant Campaign, perfectly executed and relaxing for everyone. What an experience. Wow!!!!!!! Jeremy and the team and Opes absolutely smashed this campaign out of the park, from our first meeting to settlement day (and beyond!) I felt relaxed and confident they were doing the right thing for the seller and the buyer. They really do know this industry and you get the TRUTH, no big company buffed up palava, it is real, and to top it off they are fantastic guys and girls and ultimately they get amazing results. Can't thank the team enough, can not wait to use Opes again! Congratulations to you all.
Jeremy and his Agency, Opes, are an absolute breath of fresh air when it comes to selling property. Their expertise, knowledge and experience made every post a winner particularly with executing the Agency's innovative and unique Go to Market strategy. The enthusiasm, professionalism, communication and courtesy shown to us by Jeremy and all his team was beyond reproach and was an absolute pleasure. Proposed, marketed, executed and delivered our sale with absolutely no fuss :-)
We bought a townhouse in Riccarton through Opes Real Estate. We believe we have bought a high quality property and were delighted to deal with Karl Grant, the local agent. From the beginning of the process all the way through Karl has been attentive and helpful regarding every query and every detail. We never felt pressured in any way whatever and Karl was able to guide us through the property search to the best product for our needs quietly, knowledgeably and extremely reliably. Our search has been a long one and we discussed many things with many companies and agents and we believe we can say without hesitation that Karl was hands-down the most reliable, informative and attentive agent we have had dealings with and but for him we likely would have passed this one by. With their solid and unique analysis team behind them, and quality staff, we can, without reservation, recommend Opes as a fine company to deal with for anyone wanting to invest in NZ property and particularly those buying as an investment either long-term or as a rental.

This has been a very successful house sale undertaken by Karl and the team. I was very impressed with his professional manner and the amount of guidance and relevant information he provided along the way. He's a bit of a snappy dresser too. The stand out time during the negotiation phase was his moderation between the parties and ensuring I was getting the best price. If I required the services of a real estate company again I would naturally give Karl a call.
Thank you for all your help over the last 2months, especially Jeremy getting them onto fixing everything they needed to fix before settlement. It certainly helps to have people on board that can get the job done if we need a helping hand!

We just want to express our extreme gratitude for your outstanding service. We have purchased a number of rental properties throughout Auckland and recently decided to purchase a rental property using Opes in Christchurch. We were both very anxious about the process especially purchasing outside of Auckland and having to trust that everything got done remotely. Andrew, Jeremy and the team gave us totally awesome service. They kept us informed, great communication … we always knew what is going on with the property, provided great market data and talked us through every step of the way. I was always impressed at the speed in which you got things done, including providing reports and assisting with difficult council regulations. Your guidance has been extremely valuable to us in making some informed decisions moving forward to purchase our rental property. You have been very professional and provided a really outstanding service, we are very impressed. The Opes team deserve lots of credit for a good job well done - THANK YOU

It was a pleasure dealing with the OPES real estate Christchurch team on my recent property purchase at Taylors Mistake, Scarborough. I would like to thank Jeremy, Karl and Jeremiah for their efficient communication, helpful information and willingness to go out of their way to make viewings and other requests possible. If you are looking to buy a new house I can recommend this team from personal experience.
Our purchase of a property in Christchurch was more complicated than the normal run of the mill. Jeremy was quick to respond to matters and followed through so we could proceed to the next stage of the transaction. He was straight up factual, always very open and understanding. Towards the end of the process I said to Jeremy that I had dealt with many agents over the years and in my opinion he was up there with the best of them. I had never met Jeremy prior to this purchase and without any hesitation would gladly recommend his services to any prospective purchaser or seller. Wishing you all the best Jeremy.

Jeremy Kelleher and Karl Grant have sold more than thirty properties for us in recent years. Jeremy and Karl have been an integral part of our business, from the initial design phase to best suit the current market demand, through to their creative and unique marketing and sales strategies. As investors and developers we appreciate the effort that Jeremy and Karl make to not just sell property but to understand our business and the drivers that make a successful project. They have continually demonstrated a high level relevance through their research and trend analysis. Best of all Jeremy and Karl close deals – if you are looking for a strategic real estate partner and not just an ‘agent’ I would strongly recommend them.
We repaired and renovated two 2 bed units in a seaside suburb of Christchurch. We had done many other renovations to sell before and found ourselves unhappy with the sales process. We gave the listing to Karl Grant and Jeremy Kelleher who by far exceeding our expectations. These two took the time to understand the property inside and out which I know ended up helping us achieve the result we did. Selling fixed as is where is property in Christchurch can come with a lot more hurdles but it didn’t stop these guys. Both units sold quickly (we got our first offer before the first open home) and at a price we are more than happy with!
We put everything into the renovation of hillside property so when it came time to sell it was important for us to select the right agent/s for the job. Luckily it was an easy choice as Karl and Jeremy was with us through the whole renovation advising on fixtures/finishes and market trends to best position the property in the current market. The professionalism Karl and Jeremy showed throughout the process was hard to fault, their advice helped us achieve an amazing result and quickly! We are now onto the next project which again Karl and Jeremy are actively involved in, this gives us confidence that come sale time we will achieve a great result again!
I engaged Jeremy Kelleher and Karl Grant to sell a development of 8 townhouses I built in Christchurch. From first meeting them both it was apparent they operate a little different from the industry standard. They built a custom website and created a brand which made it stand out from the competition. The first 4 sold through a deadline marketing campaign and the last 4 sold prior to the issue of title which I couldn’t be happier about. They are both professional, communicate well and easy to deal with. The market was tougher at the time, but they still managed to get great prices which I was thrilled about.
