“ I have had the pleasure of dealing with David and his team for managing and selling properties on the North Shore for years now. In an industry known for snake oil salespeople, magicians, crystal ball readers and faith healers, the team at RHNB prove to be honest and accurate with their sales advice and the same in terms of management and rental returns on properties they manage. They provide constant but unobtrusive feedback, advice and old fashioned service, while utilizing the latest and greatest marketing concepts and social media adoption, to get the best prices and outcomes for their clients. ”
“ I am a very fussy Vendor and wanted an exceptional Agent to sell my apartment. David lived up to his excellent reputation and ensured that all the detailed things were in place to enable a stress free Auction campaign. He made sure we were kept informed at all times and negotiated a great price for the property. I would highly recommend him as an Agent. ”
“ David Buttel is the most professional, competent agent I have dealt with in 40 years of buying and selling real estate. His integrity is unquestionable. We had marketed our house previously with other agents, without a result, we were thrilled when David negotiated an excellent sale price for us less than 2 weeks into our campaign. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending David to any prospective client. ”
“ David has been helping our family buy and sell property for almost 10 years and the rental side of the business, he has managed very satisfactorily, our investment properties for about 20 years. I can’t recommend David enough. Not only is he extremely hard working and conscientious, he has integrity which is something lacking in a lot of real estate agents. My latest business dealings with him resulted in a pre auction sale 10 days after listing for the price I was looking for. He continues to be available for advice and market information which is very much appreciated. ”
“ I am glad that I engaged your service. You are truly the number one agent in Neutral Bay Thanks ”
