"Results may not be everything, but what else can you trust?"
 

I would like to express my gratitude to Trevor. He is the only perfectly honest real estate agent I know, he worked hard to get us a fair price for our properties. Just some of the things he did for us were;
 

* He increased the asking price by $5,000 on one property and $9000 on another. I didnt expect that! Thank you.
 

* He actually did negotiations with buyers on our behalf and always presented all offers.
 

* He worked around our busy schedule.
 

* He called us overseas when it was necessary.
 

* He organised removal of a fireplace on our behalf.
 

* He knows his market probably better than the back of his hand.
 

* He was able to achieve a fast sale due to having a great database and knowing what his customers are after.
 

* He provided informational newsletters and market updates during the 10 years we have worked with him.
 

*He has sold seven properties on our behalf without a single hickup, in all sorts of market conditions.
 

What can I say to anybody looking to sell a house in Rotorua? Do yourself a favour and list with Trev. Let him know what you are after and he will get it for you.
 

Thank you soo soo much!

When selling our Rotorua investment property, Trevor was an obvious first choice as a selling agent. Having been on his mailing list for a number years, I noted he was a specialist in my area, was professional and organised. When appraising the property, he demonstrated his knowledge of the market and provided us with honest and realistic feedback which enabled us to choose to list for sale. His marketing resulted in the best possible interest and with two offers received, he exceeded our price expectations. The whole process was expertly handled and left us very impressed and satisfied.

Over the years I’ve been looking at property in Rotorua, and have found Trevor Cochrane’s listings to be of most value to me. He has written very accurate, informative appraisals and obtained relevant information about purchasable properties in good timely manner, so it was obvious to me he would be the choice to sell my properties if the time came. As it so happens that opportunity came about and my property sold seamlessly with Trevor. Thanks to Trevor’s integrity and professional approach, I’m happy to continue exclusively with him and his team.

Trevor Cochrane sold my investment property in Rotorua. It was a long process due to an accidental fire and subsequent rebuild of the house. Trevor gave excellent service and nurtured the process throughout. His integrity was excellent and marketing spread meant the sale was easy and smooth. He worked for the vendor throughout the sale. I recommend him to other investors.

Trevor Cochrane has done a good job. He went the extra mile to get things done. The buyer was on the roof, under the house, getting the Council papers and Trevor helped make it happen all the way. It was refreshing to work with a Real Estate agent who told it as it was, and then went and did the job. 
I'd be happy to recommend Trevor to others who need to sell their houses.

We recently sold our house in Rotorua using the services of Trevor Cochrane from Harcourts. Before putting our house on the market we consulted agents from several other prominent agencies. Of those that we spoke to, Trevor was the most professional and well-prepared agent that we encountered.
 
We appreciated the fact that he was enthusiastic, yet realistic about our property and its value. With Trevor, our property sold quickly and within the price range that he had predicted. However, at no stage did we feel pressured by Trevor to accept offers that were below our own expectations.
 
We would have no hesitation working with Trevor again and highly recommend him to anybody selling their property.

"Friends of ours who had previously purchased a home with the help of Trevor Cochrane, recommended him to us when we were looking for an investment property.
 
He gave s all the information we needed about purchasing and showed us what was on the market relative to investment property. He did not push us into buying a property, but let us look and make out own decisions, but was there instantly with any advice or recommendations needed.
 
We would use his services again and have already given his name to friends who are looking to purchase in the Rotorua District.

Trevor Cochrane is an agent with energy. My wife and I were looking at investment property so went to investigate Rotorua and met Trevor, an agent who is professional, has a sound knowledge, is honest, has ethics, is available to meet our needs. The hand out that Trevor compiled for us gave us all the info we needed to get us excited about where Rotorua is heading in the future and we want to be part of it. Trevor has listened to our needs. We purchased a group of 3 houses on 2 titles and have recently signed on a unit too. Trevor get the best results for both parties. Trevor also keep us well informed via the internet on his www.trusttrev.co.nz website. Thanks Trev

"Trevor Cochrane has marketed two rental properties for us in recent months. One was a set of twin three bedroom houses on a cross lease section which Trevor marketed together as one sale, and the second was a twin bedroom flat. In both cases Trevor confidently set prices above our expectations and  in each case he significantly exceeded his own estimate of what we would get for properties sold smoothly and without any hassles, and with happy vendors and purchasers at both ends of the deals.
 
This has been a unique experience and we can only credit excellent and responsive work by Trevor for such successful and rapid outcomes.
Bryce & Karen
 
My last 7 years successful sales are with Trevor (Harcourts Rotorua). Having dealt with many other agents, both when buying and selling, I am confident in saying that Trevor is amongst the most sincere and hardworking agents. Combined with his natural ability to communicate and genuine interest in the business, I would suggest it makes sense, if you are wanting results - ring Trevor.
