Another successful sale for the Webb Bros. It is very rewarding to get a good sale.
It is a great pleasure for us to write this reference for Lin Norris. An agent's role is to support the vendor but I think Lin recognises that in order to do this properly you need to have the confidence of the purchaser. Lin has our full confidence. He has accurately critiqued all of the properties he has shown us. We have felt more like students of farming rather than the client of a real estate agent.
After several years of looking Lin has recently assisted us in the purchase of both a 100 ha lifestyle block /subdivision in Waipu and a 350ha farm on the Kaipara harbour. After purchase of the Waipu property he helped us to clear the subdivision property of gorse and in the case of the Kaipara property he was able to engineer a superb arrangement whereby we retained a highly skilled manager and equity partner on the farm.
Over the years we have flagged a number of other properties with him and he has counselled me why we should avoid some. In both cases where we purchased he approached us directly and suggested that the properties were ones that we should consider.
Were it not for Lin we would just be some Auckland professional dreamers hoping to own a farm. We are instead very satisfied purchasers who have been very well matched to our needs.

Lin delivered a fast sale whilst keeping to our brief of no advertising and less than a month to have an offer presented. He went the extra mile and more to allow the sale to proceed whilst being easy to talk to and very quick to respond to emails and phone calls.
We would highly recommend Lin to anyone and use his services again if the need arose. Thanks again

I wanted to take the opportunity, to say how much we appreciated the clarity and attention to detail during the writing of the S & P agreement, the experience here was far from pleasant. We have often said how unfair it seems in some way that you did the most work of all the agents we dealt with and you didn’t get the sale.
Thank you very much for the last 2 sales. It is not always easy to get a decision from the 3 Webb Bros, but you folks with your professional skills and patience did, which set us up for retirement.
This is to record that I feel extremely pleased and lucky to have dealt with Alex Smits and Lin Norris of 'Bayleys', regarding a recent and prolonged property purchase.
Throughout the process I have been treated with utmost courtesy, professionalism and patience. I have dealt mainly with Alex Smits on a personal basis . He has gone out of his way during protracted negotiations to be helpful in every aspect and provide me with detail and all information requested. He has been prepared to enthusiastically and cheerfully spend significant time visiting the farm on numerous occasions, meeting the vendor and showing us around extensive extra land that was relevant to the transaction.
I can say unequivocally that it has been a pleasure dealing with Alex and Lin and that they epitomise to me the traditional professional and trustworthy agents that are rare to find. I sincerely consider that Bayleys have two outstanding and exceptional agents in Northland that I hope I can also do business with in future years.

Lin was really helpful and kept us in the loop the whole way through. Would definitely recommend him as an agent.

Many, many thanks for all your help. I found your approach to the marketing of my farm, very professional and know that you give all your clients the same thoroughness and consideration. My family was also very impressed with your work, and that you kept them fully informed as to progress. The reports were very detailed and gave me a realistic appraisal as to what to expect from prospective buyers, and your personal visits were much appreciated. The final summary was spot on.
10 out of 10 – they are a hard working team.
