ST BEDE’S surfer Caspar

McCormick (above) put on

a stylish display in his first

national event finishing second.

Competing in the longboard

section of the national scholastic

surf championships in Gisborne,

he narrowly missed out on

the title, which was won by

Auckland’s Matt Newdick.

Coach Aaron Lock said

he did incredibly well

considering he has no national

experience.

“He is a really talented surfer

and we want more contests out of

the young fellow,” he said.

The Canterbury team placed

third overall at the event held

from October 9-13.

about poor road

high number of heavy vehicles

“Staff have suggested caution

in establishing a working group

due to the resource that will be

required and the low likelihood of

the working group being able to

effect the changes requested,” she

said in the memo.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK News.................................... 3-14

THE CITY council has put the

brakes on a bid by Fendalton

residents to set up a working

party to make their streets safer.

Residents on Glandovy, Idris

and Straven Rds say their streets

are poorly laid out, have narrow

cycleways and are used by too

many heavy vehicles.

Two weeks ago we revealed

they had called on the city council

to set up a working party to

thrash out and solve the issues.

But city council boss Karleen

Edwards (see page 1) has just

sent out a memo saying no to the

working party.

Her staff have told her that

the chances of a working party

being able to effect change is

“low”.

So the city council will talk

with the community board

about solutions. No prizes for

guessing for what the residents

think.

Young inventor’s looting solution

• By Julia Evans

MICHAEL HANN likes fixing

things.

The 18-year-old always has.

His earliest memory is helping

his dad, Jody, put an electric

motor on a tricycle. “When I

see a problem, I like to think of

ways to fix or improve it,” he

said.

The Papanui High School

student saw a problem he could

solve when medication and

hearing equipment was stolen

from a North New Brighton

home during the tsunami

evacuation after the Kaikoura

earthquake last November.

“Seeing the looting when the

earthquake happened inspired

me to create this product,” he

said.

So he designed a security

system to be deployed in a

natural disaster when the

power goes out, and now he’s a

finalist in the ASB Bright Sparks

competition. It’s called TEMS,

which Michael said stands

for “temporary emergency

monitoring system”.

The invention acts as a battery

charger for devices and a place

to keep belongings locked inside

during a disaster. It also has

an alarm to keep houses safe

when evacuated. It is triggered

by the rocking caused by an

earthquake and lights up an exit

path. Michael’s now working

on connecting TEMS to an

app which would send a text if

someone breaks in.

“I really want to get it

connected up to a phone

network so it sends out a text or

notification through an app,” he

BRIGHT SPARK: Michael

School, with a prototype of

his security device designed

to be deployed in natural

disasters.

said. Michael will be flying up

to Auckland on November 7 to

attend the Bright Sparks awards

evening.

“It’s on the same night as my

last high school prize-giving,

but I’ve decided to go up to

Auckland instead,” he said.

With him will be his proud

dad, from who Michael may

have inherited the “fix it”

gene. Mr Hann’s job involves

repairing electronics for the

police. “He doesn’t help me that

much on my projects anymore

but . . . we have wires and

stuff lying around the house,”

Michael said.

He spends his free time on

Trade Me, buying broken items

to upgrade. “Sometimes it’s not

even fixing things; I just like to

make improvements like in my

bedroom. I made a motorised

blind to wake me up in the

morning,” he said.

Next year the budding

inventor will study engineering

at Canterbury University.

Victim of drink driving shares his

George Cairney’s life was completely changed

in 2008 when he sat in the back of a car with a

driver who had been drinking. The vehicle crashed

into a brick wall at 135km/h. Mr Cairney, 24, told

his sobering story to students from Christchurch

Boys’ High School and the wider community on

Wednesday. Here’s what he told the students

NOR’WEST NEWS

THANK YOU very much for

having me here this evening, I

think I have a lot of important

information that can

either help, if not save,

your lives.

And you may ask me

what I mean?

I may seem like a

normal guy, just a

regular Joe Blogg, but

I’m sure by the end

of my speech, by the

end of my story, you’ll

think very differently.

At the time of my

accident, I was back at

King’s College. I was in seventh

form in Auckland. I was loving

school, absolutely loving it.

I was in the school’s basketball

team. School sports was a

passion for me and I was loving

school. I got As in English, which

was fantastic. All of these things,

all of these passions I loved, all of

these things can be changed by

George Cairney

one decision, one bad decision.

I would like to tell you about

that now.

I was at a party, it

was about a month

before my final exams.

October 1, 2008. I was

with a bunch of friends,

I was at an 18 th party,

and it was just a regular

night.

But I was drunk, this

was my first mistake

because getting drunk

hinders your ability to

make good decisions. It

makes it really hard to

say ‘hey, I don’t want to do that’.

I asked my friend for a ride

home because I was drunk and I

couldn’t drive.

He said he was sober, he said

he hadn’t had anything to drink

– how was I supposed to know

that? Unless you plan it before or

you keep an eye on it the whole

night.

He told me he was sober, this

was not true. He’d had more

than twice the legal limit to

drive.

We hopped in the car. This was

my next mistake, one of

many – I didn’t put on my seat

belt.

It’s so simple, it takes three

seconds and it saves lives. I may

have been in the back left side of

the car but people still die.

Then he started driving very

fast. Extremely fast and very

badly.

Fire rages, homes at risk

sobering story with students

I should’ve said: ‘Stop. Please

pull over, I’m not comfortable,

will you please let me out.’ It’s

simple.

That was the moment that

changed my life forever.

He was rounding a corner too

fast on Remuera Rd in a 50km/h

zone, going twice the speed

limit-plus.

He hit a power pole exactly

where I was seated.

We went through a garage

door and halfway through a

brick wall.

I was in a coma for a month.

When I woke up, I didn’t

know I was there, I didn’t know

what had happened because I

don’t remember this night. I

don’t remember a year and a

half before this night or a year

and a half after this night.

Three years of my life is gone

and I feel like I’m telling stories

about another person.

But these were my mistakes. It

has affected my life hugely.

I have diabetes, epilepsy,

splenectomy – it took my spleen.

These are the scars from

one, two, three, four, five bad

mistakes in one evening.

I even had to have part of my

skull replaced with titanium

plating.

My left leg was partially

replaced with a titanium rod

and behind this metal front is

the part of my brain that was

most damaged.

Sure, I damaged the left

and right lobe but the frontal

lobe is what makes it hard to

behave correctly, behave socially

correctly and manage my own

life.

I can’t plan. I work with six

carers part time, 24/7.

Every single day of my life is

planned by someone else. That

was not my plan when I was

back at high school, this was not

my plan when I was 17 years of

age.

But I made those mistakes.

Partial loss of sight, partial

loss of hearing, partial loss of

smell.

My left eye I can only see

when I look in one direction.

My right eye, I can’t see my

hand when it’s right there.

My left ear is deaf, which is a

big bummer. I only have eight

per cent taste left, which is a

real bummer – I was a big food

person.

Not so much anymore.

All of these things, all of these

injuries, all of this crap in my

life could’ve been prevented by

just thinking before I did those

things.

Before I finish this speech,

I just have a few questions for

you.

How would you think, how

would you feel if you were in my

position?

How would you feel having all

of this happen to you and you

were in the middle of it?

What would you do to stop it

again? And how would you live?

Because every day I get up, I

feel like I have less motivation.

Every day I get up, it’s hard.

There are three things you

have to remember.

Don’t drink and drive. Come

on, it’s not that hard, is it?

Second thing, (when you) hop

into a car, put your seat belt on.

It’s three seconds of your life.

Put your seat belt on, even

if you’re in the back seat. They

save lives. Millions of lives.

And next, if your friend is

driving dangerously, if he’s

driving fast, if he’s driving

drunk – tell him to pull over, tell

him to stop the car.

You shouldn’t be embarrassed

to ask because they should

be the ones embarrassed for

putting your life in danger.

Thank you.

Funding gives confidence to plan ahead

Manager of the

Neighbourhood

Trust Ginny

Larsen writes

about how

three years

of funding

has secured the trust’s

future to the benefit of the

community

Funding – the very word is

enough to send chills up the

spine of most not-for-profit organisations.

As the manager of Neighbourhood

Trust, (the community arm

of St Albans Baptist Church),

a local not-for-profit working

mainly in the Mairehau, Shirley

and St Albans part of town, I

feel like half my life is taken up

with funding applications and

accountabilities.

So it is a nice surprise to have

some funders making the process

a bit easier by putting three-year

funding as an option.

This year both NZ Lotteries

and the city council, through its

community boards offered this

alternative.

And we are exceptionally grateful

to the Papanui-Innes Community

Board for its grant.

It must be hugely difficult

making decisions, especially as

the funds available to them have

been cut by $85,000.

So what does this mean for an

organisation to have funds guaranteed

for three years?

It gives us confidence to plan

and look ahead, to know we can

retain our wonderfully effective

staff and provide appropriate

training to keep them up-to-date.

It means we can continue to

offer our community consistent,

community-led work at a high

level to a variety of sectors – the

Golden Connections programme

for over-60s; from exercise classes

to community days; from free

English as a second language

classes to OSCAR programmes

to the Pay It Forward collective

of over 50 local designers, selling

their products through the store

at 49 Nancy Ave.

It also means we can dream

a little about working with our

community in different ways,

supporting and mentoring,

listening to their aspirations for

their whanau.

Through the Mairehau Neighbourhood

Project, a three-year

COMMUNITY: The Neighbourhood Trust can focus on

supporting the community now that it has secured three years

of funding. ​

project supported by The Tindall

Foundation, we have seen transformational,

long-term change;

some remarkable stories.

Working alongside partners

Te Ora Hou and Kingdom

Resources, with Mairehau

Primary School as a base has

brought a depth to our work with

families.

We have seen the value of

longer-term thinking and are

delighted that this work can

now continue to develop. It’s

energising and empowering for

our organisation and for our

community.

On one hand, we are humbled

by the trust funders have put in

us; on the other hand, we’d love

to see the process made easier for

all those organisations who have

a proven track record and give

great value for money.

Let’s release them from the

application grind and free them

for more time making things

happen.

NOR’WEST NEWS

Readers respond to

the article regarding

construction of another

set of lights on Main North

Rd outside Northlands

Shopping Centre.

Glenda McMillan – Maybe

the people who decide these designs

should take a look at some

Australian malls. All their busses

detour into the malls so all other

traffic doesn’t have to deal with

a shambles like Papanui Rd has

become. It’s a real shame as there

is a big impact on the local community

with increased traffic

that doesn’t flow.

Conrad Fitz-Gerald –

Pretty convenient really. I mean,

you don’t even have to find a

park anymore. Just jump out at

the start of the lights and you’ll

be back before you need to go

anywhere. Great way to keep customers

happy.

Unearthed

Excavating our stock room we have brought some

hidden gems to light.

Historic through to recent works will be displayed in

an exhibition unlike any we have held before. Any

artwork can be taken on the purchase day for the

ticket price, no need to wait until the end of the

show. You can also take the silent auction option,

make a respectful written offer to the artist. At the

end of the show the highest bid will be considered,

perhaps it will be yours, a chance to get an artwork

‘for a song’.

Delve into the wonderful paintings, sculptures and

prints by emerging and established artists. Some

of the participants are Robin Slow, Brent Forbes,

Anna Dalzell, Chris Pole, Jane Downes, Hamish

Southcott, Carol Stensrud, Chris Moore, Rae West,

Jill Perrott, Barb Warren and many more.

That esoteric artwork that has haunted you for

years may be back to tempt you, others may

seem like old friends, whatever, it will certainly be

a diverse and intriguing show. Presales welcome.

Darryn Bennett – I’d love

to meet the brainless imbecile

who thought this was a good

idea. Can’t they just stick to

ruining the CBD and leave the

suburbs alone?

Jill Lang – In my opinion

the money would be better spent

putting in much needed right

turning lights. Since the turning

rule was changed some places are

hideous such as Cranford St onto

Innes Rd.

Mike Allfrey – Chuck in a

it. Way to go council, lets stuff up

the whole traffic flow. And they

wonder why people don’t go to

the CBD. It’s the same but worse

there.

Andrew Miller – The Papanui

High School students that

walk straight out onto the road

will keep doing it.

Aaron Campbell – Don’t

forget the useless traffic islands

with trees and a cycle path that

takes up most of the road and

you are on to a winner.

Vanessa MacKenzie –

Where? There are lights at the

corner by Westpac, there are

lights at the closest entrance

to Countdown and lights by

Couplands. If people are crossing

unsafely, shouldn’t they be penalised

for it? Most crossing are

grown-ups who know better.

Jacque Skinner – This is

getting ridiculous! They’ve also

put completely unnecessary

crossing lights in on Sawyers

Arms Rd at the Papanui Club.

There are lights down just a bit

at the Gardiners Rd intersection

so this is going to cause even

more congestion especially

after school. There was already

a crossing bay there that cars

would often stop for so lights are

a waste of money which could

have been used to put lights

where really need such as the

hideous Breens/Harewood/Gardiners

Rds intersection.

Rachel Powell – It’s already

so slow going that way it’s quicker

to go around back streets to

avoid Papanui Rd do they really

need more lights in that area.

working party

•From page 1

Concerned resident James

Wilding said it was difficult to

comprehend there would be a

“low” chance of change with a

working group.

“Fundamental city council policy

includes listening to and working

with communities, creating

healthy and safe communities and

elected members making decisions.

We want to work with the city

council,” he said.

Dr Edwards sent the memo after

city council staff recommended

the issues could be “sufficiently

addressed” by having a work shop

with the community board next

month. That workshop would not

include the public, which Mr Wilding

said was “difficult to reconcile”.

One issue Mr Wilding was

expressly concerned about is the

width of the cycleway on Idris Rd.

Dr Edwards said the section of

the cycle lane would be remarked

by November. But Mr Wilding said

the city council has only acknowledged

one section of the cycle lane

does not comply, when there are

more than 10.

The memo will be discussed

by the community board at its

meeting tonight.

early November after an open

day on October 29 for people to

walk or cycle along the new road.

A north-bound lane will open

to traffic first, followed by a

south-bound lane about a week

later.

The stagnated opening will

allow the project team to

complete the final parts of the

project, such as connecting

the bypass to the existing road

network and carrying out

surfacing work on the ramps.

A temporary speed limit and

traffic management will be in

project. Depending on the

weather, all lanes of the bypass

should be open to traffic in

December.

The construction team will

return to lay the final low noise

asphalt surfacing in spring 2018.

About 118,000 plants, shrubs

and trees have been planted

along the bypass.

Most have been grown from

seeds and cuttings sourced from

native plants in the area.

During the project, more than

3500 native fish, including long

fin and short fin eels, giant bully

and inanga, have been rescued

and relocated to other parts of

the waterway.

Where the bypass travels over

waterways, culverts have been

designed to allow fish passages

and riparian planting has been

restored with native species.

Their only loss came in pool

(2-3). They beat Manawatu

(12-0), Thames Valley (7-0) and

Hawkes Bay (4-0) before beating

Waikato 4-0 in the quarter-final.

After a tough 2-1 win over

hosts South Canterbury in

the semi-final, they faced

Wellington. Christchurch Girls’

High’s Sophie Bowden slotted

home the winner from a penalty

corner with 4min to go.

She then added another after

Wellington subbed their goalie,

to close out the game 4-2.

Villa Maria’s Kate Davies

was the top scorer for the side

netting eight goals during the

tournament.

The under-15 A girls team

They finished top of their pool

with wins against Otago (6-0),

Taranaki (4-0) and Northland

with a tough quarter-final 2-1

victory against Waikato.

Morel bowls start of season SPORTS

• By Andrew King

CANTERBURY’S most

decorated bowler has got her

season off to another great start.

Bev Morel won the South

Island chartered clubs women’s

championship fours title this

month.

Playing with her longtime

partner and sister Theresa

Woodham, as well as Sherrie

Cottle and Margaret Pilkington,

the team overcame stiff competition

from 54 teams throughout

the South Island.

“In the final, the three girls

played outstanding and I played

average,” she said.

“Luckily, my opponent struggled

as well. It was just one of

those games.”

It was another win for the

Redwood resident, who turns 76

in November.

She was recently awarded her

35th Canterbury centre title by

Bowls Canterbury president

Brian Barker at the Elmwood

Park Club, the most by any

woman bowler in the region.

Morel still trains four days

a week at the gym as well as

mentoring and coaching new

bowlers at her local club.

With the national open championships

approaching, she will

be looking to add to her three

titles. “I am looking forward to

nationals. I have been to a few,”

she said.

One of her standout memories

HONOURED: Bev Morel was presented with her 35th Canterbury centre title by Bowls

Canterbury president Brian Barker at the Elmwood Park Club.

as a bowler was from a national

event in Dunedin in 1998.

“My brother died while I was

down there playing and my sister

was in my team,” she said.

“We played for our brother

and won it. We knew he was

going to pass away and we both

missed his funeral. He told us

to go there and win the title and

we did.”

Morel started playing in 1981

after making the change from

indoor bowls to outdoor as her

friend and husband were already

playing outdoor bowls.

In spite of Morel’s success, she

has never been in the national

team, known as the Blackjacks.

“Problem is it is an age thing.

(I was) told in my 50s I was too

old,” she said.

She said there is a definite age

culture bias with the selectors.

“They might deny it but

they have an age culture,” she

said.

Finally It Is

Here

Concrete homes may be

the way of the future

Compass Homes Canterbury have completed

construction of their concrete

show home in Prestons Park, Burwood –

the first of its kind in the South Island.

With this type of construction, specially

formulated concrete is poured into aluminium

building forms, then left to set.

This allows all the walls to be poured at

the property in one solid piece.

Christchurch General Manager for Compass

Homes, Yolande Mintrom, says she

and her team are very excited to see the

launch of ‘The Concrete Home’.

“Its benefits are speed, eco-friendliness,

versatility and warmth,” Yolande says.

Metal mesh made in New Zealand is used

for reinforcing, she says, providing a

structure that has a very high earthquake,

flood and fire resistance, as well as an extremely

high thermal efficiency.

“The thermal mass of concrete homes

is more efficient than conventional

wooden homes. It reduces the energy

required, and therefore the expense of

heating or cooling your home.”

Yolande also points out that concrete

homes are beneficial for those suffering

from allergies, as concrete doesn’t

support the growth of mould or mildew.

It tends to also have lower ongoing

maintenance costs, which she

puts down to the fact that it is less

absorbent than other materials.

This weekend, Compass Homes will

be opening the doors to the very first

Concrete Show Home in Canterbury,

and it will be the first of many,

Yolande says.

“The finish, the features, the duty of

care is evident in every corner of this

well-positioned home, situated at 33

Preston Park Road, Burwood. Come

and have a look for yourself.”

Compass Homes Showhomes are

open 12 pm—4 pm, Wednesday to

Sunday at 54 Footbridge Terrace,

Sillverstream, Kaiapoi, as well as 33

Prestons Park Road, Burwood.

See you there!

FASHION: Model Cirrus Tan shows off designer Cindy Weiss’ land of the long

white cloud design at the Art Couture NZ wearable arts competition.

Harewood

designer’s

wearable

creation

HAREWOOD‘S Cindy Weiss was among

the designers who unleashed their weird

and wonderful art in Selwyn’s first

wearable arts competition.

Art Couture NZ brought its first fashion

show to life in Tai Tapu, attracting about

150 people through the door.

The show, judged by designer Loretta

Sloan and artists Steve Henderson

and Blanche Fryer, featured about 29

designers.

Ms Weiss created a New Zealandinspired

outfit titled ‘land of the long

white cloud’.

The dress was made of merino wool and

seaweed.

Organiser Kim Strange said the dress

was a “beautiful garment that was well

constructed”.

Mrs Strange said people were stunned

at the quality of the garments and the

creativity of the designers.

NOR’WEST NEWS

BEAUTY: Designers from around

the country descended on Tai Tapu

for the wearable arts competition,

including Auckland’s Leanne Day and

model Laura Murton with this

award-winning madame bride design.

“It was just nice watching everyone’s

faces. You just saw everyone getting a lot

of pleasure from it . . . we have got very

clever people,” she said.

The competition, hosted by city

councillor Anne Galloway, included

designs ranging from a phoenix-style

dress to futuristic themed items.

The audience also had the chance to mix

with the designers and models.

“People were able to see the outfits up

close and go and talk to the designers to

see how they made them . . . they seemed

to enjoy that,” Mrs Strange said.

She’ll see

opportunities

not obstacles

Build up you daughters’

confidence levels so

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Clinic offers easy

solution to varicose veins

If varicose veins are a problem for you, the

dedicated, professional team at Transform

Clinic in Mandeville Street Riccarton can

provide the perfect solution.

Firstly, they will give you a free

assessment of your veins, and then suggest

the appropriate method of treatment,

depending on the condition of the veins.

There are two methods available –

endo-venous laser treatment, which is

used for both smaller and larger veins,

and ultrasound guided sclerotherapy.

Both are easy and straightforward, and

you can be fully active immediately

afterwards, without needing to take any

time off work, or curtail your normal

activities. The only requirement is for you

to wear special stockings for two weeks

following treatment, and daily walking is

recommended.

Both these treatments give long-term

relief from the pain and discomfort of

varicose veins, and as Transform Clinic’s

Jenny Little points out, they have become

the treatment method of today, with

surgical removal of varicose veins now

considered obsolete.

Jenny advises having treatment as early

as possible when varicose veins start to

appear, as left untreated they may lead to

venous ulcers and venous eczema, although

if these have developed, Transform Clinic

can treat them as well.

Transform Clinic has an affiliation

with health provider Southern Cross and

relationships with several other health

insurance companies, which means you are

usually covered for treatment, providing it

is included in your policy.

Transform Clinic also offers a full range

of appearance medicine options, including

skin rejuvenation and skin-tightening

treatments designed to improve skin quality

and enhance self-esteem. They remove

superficial veins on the legs and face, and

also provide mole mapping, mole removal

and primary skin cancer removal. Their

website, www.transformclinic.co.nz, has

information on all the various treatments

available.

“We are a ‘one-stop shop’ for all cosmetic

medicine treatments,” says Jenny.

Transform Clinic is discreetly located

at 52a Mandeville Street. Opening hours

are Monday to Friday from 8.30am, with

late nights on Tuesday and Thursday,

and Saturday from 9am to 3pm. Phone

343-2880 to enquire about treatments or

make an appointment.

LUCKY

FOR LANA

LUCKY? Perhaps more pure talent than luck!

Lana Doublet says she is ‘over the moon’ aer

claiming the NZ Country Music Awards

Songwriter of the Year for the 3rd consecutive

year.

“e song that won my recent title is called

'Together Apart' - inspired aer watching an

Attitude Live documentary of the same name

that told a beautifully sad story about how a

family lived with the struggle of dementia.”

Taking place in Rotorua on Saturday 14th

October, the prestigious NZCMA event is

considered the pinnacle for winners of

regional Country Music competitions.

“I've always had a love of music and

storytelling but it wasn't until I was

introduced to the country music scene aer

meeting my husband Phil Doublet, that I was

able to combine the two,” said Lana. “I have

always been very stage-shy, and still get

extremely nervous, so thankful for the

constant support and encouragement from

family and friends telling me 'I can'.”

And ‘she has’. Over the past few years Lana

has claimed numerous awards, including

Licensed Sales Consultant

As the 2017 year comes to an end many people are

making choices for 2018 with many people choosing

to move home, change schools, buy a car and

organise another holiday.

We make important choices throughout our life; what schools our

children will go to, what food we eat, what friends we have, where

to go on holiday, and the values we instil in our children. Two of

the biggest choices we have to make are; where we live and when

to sell and buy. A crucial component of the process is selecting

the right licensed real estate salesperson to guide you through the

mountain of information and industry jargon. A salesperson can

assist in the important task of identifying the right buyer for your

house, as well as understanding your unique requirements and

make your next dream home a reality. It takes great negotiation and

sales skills teamed with effective target marketing to deliver the

very best results. Kathryn and Peter can offer you an exceptional

real estate experience. Working as a team we collectively together

want to achieve the very best results and the best outcome. Give us

a call today, we would really like to hear from you.

Client Comments

We sold our house in Strowan Road. We were fortunate that we listed with experienced local agents Peter and Kathryn Hampton to perform this task on

our behalf. We were very impressed by Peter and Kathryn’s knowledge of the local area. The Marketing campaign which fitted in with our budget suggested

by Peter and Kathryn attrached a large number of people to the Open Home viewings. Throughout the three weeks sales period, Peter and Kathryn’s

communication and buyer feedback was invaluable and greatly appreciated. Their professional attitude and honesty gave us confidence to trust his decisions.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Peter and Kathryn Hampton to anybody looking at selling their house.

Brian and Maryanne

Many thanks Peter and Kathryn for doing such a great job in selling our house. We appreciated your knowledge of the local market, your ability to listen, your

calm demeanours and your straight forward and clear communication (without any annoying jargon!) The selling price was above our expectations and that

was down to your hard work and experience. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you.

Cherry

I listed my three bedroomed villa with Peter and Kathryn Hampton, and have been extremely happy with the process and outcome. Their local knowledge and

past experience with other properties in the area proved to be invaluable to help convince buyers that ‘this was one of them.’ From the outset, I was determined

to find an agent that was realistic with market value, knew their stuff and would not tell me what they thought I wanted to hear. Coupled with a close working

relationship, as well as the ever important sale, I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them.

Brent

I thought both Kathryn and Peter worked really hard to promote and sell my house. They were easy to contact and explained what was happening clearly. I

really loved Kathryn assistance to get the house looking fantastic for the open homes.
