“A name you can trust
– Roger Hales

Experience & Honesty

I remember my father saying to me many years ago “never lose your sense of humour, never take yourself too seriously and always to thine own self be true”.

That philosophy plus a wide experience in both corporate management and small business ownership and 20+ years selling real estate in Christchurch ensure that you receive the benefit of a caring, interesting and empathetic approach to buying or selling.

I try to be honest, act with integrity, have some fun and I will always tell you what I think, and not what I think you want to hear.
