Don’t just take our word for it

Here are just a few of our five star and excellent allAgent reviews...

I recently purchased my first home through Shortland Horne. From the viewing, the follow ups and to the day of completion, my experience with the team has been great. The property I bought was listed by 2 agents, and given the great experience my parents had in the past with the SH team, I chose to proceed with them also. They were always available to communicate with, and guide me throughout the process of buying home. Being my first purchase, they were patient and knowledgeable and saved me time in chasing. Sue was always friendly, and happy to help where she could. I would recommend Shortland Horne to all Buyers, as the service they receive will be unmatched by another. Thank you again!

Shortland Horne, and specificall Sue and Richard, were working with us to complete the purchase of a house on their books, due to many factors this was not always as straight forward as it could have been (what with 2020, pandemic etc) but always Sue and Richard were professional, responsive and courteous. Always available to us and happy to resolve issues and chase outstanding issues. Recommended.
