What our clients say about Team Dobbo:
I originally didn’t want to go through an agent to sell my house. I was dubious about agents, after all, in my mind, agents chased a commission as opposed to the dreams we were chasing. BUT Sharon right from the word go - changed our perception! We were instantly drawn to her professionalism, worth ethic genuine, relatable and fun lovable self. Sharon went OVER and ABOVE from what we expected. She and Dobbo acted on our behalf and brought in a price for us that we would not have been able to secure on our own – it was a dream sale price.

After placing my home on the market with another Real Estate company for 3 months, I made a decision to change to Sharon Dobson at Lugtons. This was the BEST thing I ever did. From supposedly having the top agents from another company to Sharon, the difference was amazing she really does go the extra mile. Her advice was excellent, she kept me informed at all times and went out of her way to make the whole process so much easier.. The sales result was much faster and much better than I expected.

Sharon not only helped my siblings and I understand the whole process of selling a house, but partook in the nitty gritty details with us too!
Guiding us firmly but gently the whole way , Sharon and Dobbo dispelled all rumours we’d ever heard of real estate agents and the need to ”watch out” for them. And who doesn’t like pizza when there’s tonnes of paperwork to be filled out. We will definitely take advantage of their joint expertise in the future.

Sharon kept us informed every step of the way. She chased down every lead and let us know of every person that showed any interest in our property and gave us plenty of feedback. We highly recommend Sharon for anyone selling their property. Many thanks for all your help
- Jill and Paul Bunn (sold in Huntington)
When we were speaking with Sharon we felt like we were her only priority, even though I know we weren’t .We were looking to buy during the Christmas period when everybody was looking to shut down to go on holiday. During the process of numerous viewings of the property, that we eventually purchased, we met Sharon’s husband Howard. Both Sharon and Dobbo are like family now, so would I retain their services if I’m ever in the market again? Absolutely in a heartbeat. They have been a pleasure to deal with from start to finish.
- Nathan and Heidi Lewis (Buyers in Hamilton)
Sharon and Dobbo first hooked up in Auckland in 1996 and discovered that they were actually in the same class (as 6 year olds) at Hamilton’s Whitiora Primary school in 1976. They have been married since 1999.
