“We were recommended to contact Nick from a good friend of ours when it came to buying our first home. From the first phone call, Nick was such a pleasure to work with. He instantly turned from what we thought to be such a stressful, intense process into an exciting venture to find a home for our young family. Nick was very insightful, genuine and knowledgable. He has great communication and really went above and beyond for us. We highly recommend Nick to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. We look forward to working with you in the future. Thank you so much!”
Andrew & Mandy

“Recently we sold our house in Beerescourt Hamilton and entrusted the process to Nick Earney of Lugtons. We found Nick to be very professional throughout the whole time and were very pleased with the outcome achieved. He kept us up to date and communicated regularly, I would not hesitate to recommend Nick to anyone looking at buying or selling property.”
Bryce Campbell

“Our experience with selling our house was amazing – Nick was there all the way keeping us informed, advising what we should do to present the house in the best condition and completing the sale in less than a week. Nothing was too much trouble for Nick and we recommend Nick to anyone looking for an agent to take care of them.” 
Maureen & John Sage

“Nick helped me find and secure my first home. He gave me amazing advice and talked me through the process and explained strategies. Despite the search being a long one he was in for the long haul to help me. I was very confident with putting offers on properties with Nicks support. Thank you so much Nick.”

“We met Nick unintentionally through a home viewing and it was his authentic, caring, and attentive approach that left an impression on us. We later reached out to Nick to help us find our dream home. He remained professional but approachable, he answered all our questions and never left us unanswered. He really made us feel like we were his only clients. With the help of Nick, we soon found "the dream home" and he worked behind the scenes to push the deal over the line on the eve of a long weekend, leaving us absolutely over the moon. Nick's genuine, authentic, and personable delivery makes him outstanding and an absolute pleasure to work with. We can't recommend him highly enough. Thank you so much Nick.”

“We were in the process of buying a house, so we went to a house where Nick was the selling agent for an auctioned property. Auctions were new to us, so Nick helped us along the journey of trying to put ourselves in a good position to buy at auction. The advice he gave was really good but unfortunately, we ended up missing out on the auctioned property due to competition. The thing that stood out for us was he was really approachable, and it felt like I had known Nick for a long time. We then decided that we wanted Nick to help us look for a property because of this. He was able to again offer sound advice, great bidding strategies and even more than that, he was getting us house viewings at such late notice and being available to be there to take us through. Within a few weeks of looking at houses, Nick helped us get a house that was better for our family than the original auctioned house and for that we are grateful. If you’re looking at buying or selling, then don’t hesitate to make contact with Nick. You will not be disappointed.”
JC Haenga

“We really appreciate the way Nick dealt with us during the whole process. His approach was very professional and honest, gave his valuable opinion whenever needed to be in control of the position. A good listener and good communicator, Nick kept driving us with positive attitude and relaxed and stress-free environment. We are grateful to him for all his efforts in getting us our first home. Thank you, Nick.” - Arvind Kanda

“After many months of searching for a home, I got in touch with Nick. He made the process super easy and supported every decision I made along with answering every question I had! Nothing was too hard for Nick, and he was there whenever I needed him! Professional supportive and great with communicating! I highly recommend Nick for buying or selling!”
Andrew Day

“We are so grateful to have chosen Nick as the agent to sell our house. There was so much on the line for us, a strict timeline and so much pressure but Nick was always there, happy to talk us through the process and go the extra mile. The time that Nick puts into every detail and every conversation is refreshing to see and the way that he prioritises the needs and wants of the client is something to be admired for. Don’t look elsewhere, Nick is the agent you want to be with for great results, great communication skills and a very humble and down to earth personality. Always just a call away.”
Onalia Hermiz

After searching the market for the right agent, we met Nick. It was then we knew he was the right agent who would make this process easy, structured and one to remember. Nick’s thorough planning and organisational skills showed throughout the whole campaign, he went the extra mile and put in the effort to deliver the best results for us and working within our time frame. Look forward to working with Nick in the future if we buy/sell again.
David Newport

Nick was the most responsive agent we came across when looking to buy a new project property, not only arranging viewings and itinerary but also taking us around town personally to the viewings and because he has his own personal experience of purchasing a do up property for the purpose of selling on, we got genuine advice. Nick is friendly and professional, and we don’t hesitate returning to Nick for selling when we come to list our home.
Elton & Remalia

We want to thank you for the assistance you have provided us with in purchasing a property for our daughter. As you know, it has been an emotional roller coaster - the lows of repeatedly missing out and the finally high of success. Your timely comms, sound advice, guidance and thoroughness helped us to navigate buying a home in a fast moving property market. The step by step instruction when filling out paper work and the “team talk” of strategies when bidding at auction gave us the confidence we needed in a real estate agent. We can not fault your professionalism in all our dealings with you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
