Smart Choice Real Estate
Just some of our happy buyers and sellers

I write to thank you for the excellent service in selling my Home. Your team has been excellent in every aspect of the sale from the professional easy marketing from yourself through to the backup administration service from AJ & Karla.  It was more of a family feeling than a business deal.  The stress free, no pressure attitude of the team at Smart Choice has made me glad that I chose to list with Smart Choice.  Thank you for the great results.  Katrice Hargreaves.


As a purchaser, I found Smart Choice to be really accommodating, they made themselves available at every opportunity, which is so important when scheduling in pre-purchase inspections for various reports & valuers as when buying you need to make sure that you are making the right decisions.

I am absolutely stoked with the service I received from Amanda and Tibor!! They certainly went the extra mile to make my transition from renter to homeowner as easy as possible. Many thanks to them both. J Hunt


I had the pleasure of dealing with Smart Choice Real Estate recently when selling my home in Huntly and what a refreshing experience to have the guidance and assistance of someone who knows the local market very well and provides an incredibly professional service. The experience was completely effortless for me as Amanda is organized, honest and definitely has your best interest at heart. Amanda went beyond her duties of a real estate agent and became a trusted advisor and a friend during the sale process and I would definitely recommend Smart choice to anyone who is buying or selling their home! Thank you, Smart Choice, for an outstanding job! B Smith


I am one happy Customer! 3 houses sold in just a few short months! Amanda is professional, courteous and friendly Amanda works hard to get good results Amanda was quick to return my calls, and gives feedback promptly + goes out of her way to make things happen. Amanda and Tibor are a great team, they have taken charge of the Huntly Real Estate market with their excellent skills and sheer determination + hard work. Many Thanks Happy 3x vendor


I have dealt with real estate both here and Australia, Tibor and Amanda provide a service that far exceeds any other I've experienced. Can't recommend highly enough. Tibor and Amanda provide a perfect mix of professionalism, and a genuine personal service. Can't recommend highly enough. J West

I found Amanda and the Smart Choice team to be very understanding when dealing with my father after the loss of his wife. They lived in Hakanoa street and we, the children, live all over the North Island and not in Huntly. Our relationship with Amanda was long distance but this didn't stop Amanda from keeping us informed at all times. She is very helpful and not at all forceful. Always listening to our request and carrying out our wishes. I would definitely use Smart Choice Real Estate again and recommend Amanda to anyone needing a pleasant and cooperative agent in the area. Thank you Amanda T Cosson


Dear Amanda and Tibor, thanking you for all you have done for us, from a stress less joyful, fast and painless transaction to buying a house, you are truly amazing supportive and great at what you do. Smart Choice is a Smart Choice and I will be and would recommend you to anyone, I am still in disbelief that I am actually in my own home it seems like yesterday we were talking about purchasing a home. Thanks a million Charlotte Shane & family


Amanda Griffiths from Smart Choice Real Estate was appointed as our Real Estate Agent deemed with the task of selling our property. Our house had been on the market for 7 ½ years under a couple of different companies in Huntly but we hadn’t really seen any interest when Amanda eventually got a buyer for it and not one but two.  A multi-offer after all this time, we couldn’t believe our luck!!  Amanda work tirelessly with both parties to get us the best price and conditions.  As our house was tenanted at the time this added the extra dimension of having to work in with our tenants which isn’t easy at the best of time and we had also moved out of the area which meant that we could only communicate via phone and email.  We are very happy with the outcome and the work the team at Smart Choice Real Estate have done for us and would recommend the team to anyone wanting to sell their property.

Dear Amanda

It is a pleasure and a blessing that we found and met you. You have been an honest agent who lead us on our path and search and found our lovely two houses in Huntly. Your ongoing contacts and communication with us right from the beginning was also with positive attitude towards the end of our purchase. We thank YOU very much for all of your support and help that even more than three times a day that we would ask all sorts of questions, and when it came to decide with our buying our homes, not even once that you said "I don't know", and instead you always advise us with honest heart. Once again, THANK YOU Amanda, we love you and your work. Please continue to do what you do, it works for us and we're sure it'll bless other's lives too.

May God, bless YOU abundantly for your great work.

Regards and Thank you from us

Whilst some franchise Realty companies pursue" hard sell", "high turn-over" in the quest for economic efficiency, the customer loses proper, personal discussion as to their needs. Property transactions for the average homeowner are stressful. Customers require, not only regular communication and advice from their agent, but also time to deliberate. Personal, one on one discussions are paramount, at the very least to instil confidence and to assure the customer that the fees are being earned. Amanda and Tibor of Smart Choice have profound knowledge of property transactions, give sound advice and their" Family Friend" approach alleviate much of the stress allowing the customer to make confident decisions.   B Carter


Dear Amanda, thank you so much for your amazing positive & professional service in selling (address withheld) you have no idea how grateful I am. wishing you all the very best. Erica


To Whom it may concern,

I would highly recommend to anyone buying or selling, the service provided by Amanda Griffith of Smart Choice. We recently engaged Amanda to sell our property In Kimihia Road. Not only did it sell quite quickly but we were impressed the way Amanda dealt with the whole process, which can be quite stressful, especially for ourselves who have owned the home for over 20 years. She was a pleasure to deal with, Friendly but professional. She was also reliable honest, kept us informed at all times with updates as to any ' interest expressed 'by possible buyers. She respected our family hours and made appointments to suit our requirements, and if she didn't know the answer to any of our questions, she would find out and nothing appeared to be too much trouble. We would unreservedly recommend her services for any real estate dealing you may require. Our Regards


I found the service Smart Choice provided to be exceptional. Their marketing and communication between myself and buyers worked “it’s Sold “. Great team thank you Amanda, Tibor & Jinny.  Mere Kaweroa ,Hakanoa Street, June 2017

Working with Dawn to sell my home was effortless and she made me confident with the whole process. Dawn was able to answer all of my questions and kept me up to date with weekly reports.The sale still came as a surprise as I was nervous waiting for the unconditional status. I would highly recommend Dawn and the team at Smart Choice Real Estate in Huntly to friends and family.Thanks again.Gareth Coles.  March 2018

Dear Smart Choice Real Estate

Buying your first home is such an exciting and overwhelming process. Myself and my partner Jason did not know what we were doing and got advice from all directions. The advice we took from a work colleague to work with Amanda at Smart Choice was great advice. Through the whole process, Amanda was helpful and honest, always keeping us in the loop. We never felt the questions we were asking were stupid, which was a huge relief as there was so much we did not know or understand so we ended up asking a lot of questions. Amanda always listened to our queries and would answer them to her best knowledge. We never felt any pressure from her as she always reassured us that I was our decision and an important one so take our time. we never felt we were missing out on any information. the small things that once you are living somewhere are the big things were always talked about. For example, Amanda would tell us if she knew the neighbours and what the street was like if she had sold homes there before. We ended up buying a lovely home next door to another one of her clients who we get on well with. It is the small things that made purchasing our first home so easy and a joy rather than a hassle. When Tibor came to take the sign down from outside our home he took some photos of us in front of the sign before he left, humouring us as we tried again and again and again to get the perfect jumping photo. Amanda and Tibor made our experience of buying our first home a pleasure by being honest and approachable. Just by being themselves.


Having brought our beautiful home thru Amanda and Tibor (smart Choice) 16 months ago, our relationship has only strengthened. we found them down to earth, friendly, honest, reliable, hardworking and relaxed professionalism undoubtedly outstanding. We are only too happy to share our experience and highly recommend to all. Buying or selling (Smart Choice) would definitely be a Smart Choice Excellent!! Thank you, Amanda and Tibor xx Hector and Katrina,


Being a first-time buyer, I have to admit I was extremely nervous and I didn't know what to expect. at the start of the sale I was naïve towards the paperwork and information which had to be gathered and processed. However, Amanda at Smart Choice real-estate was very approachable and willing to help with any inquiries I had. Having such a positive real-estate agent defiantly made my purchase   a pleasant experience. For future purchases, I will be contacting Smart Choice Real-estate.Thank you, Amanda N. Callaghan


Amanda and Tibor, thank you so much for making the sale of our house a very pleasant experience for us, it took a while to sell and we had been through a couple of real estates and none of them came close to your professional standard, you made what can be a stressful process, very pleasant, kept us updated and even maintained the for sale sign every weekend. A very dedicated and hardworking team I would definitely recommend Smart Choice to others. thank you for a very pleasant experience. From Barbara and Paul Ruston


Dear Amanda & Tibor, Letter of reference given with pleasure as follows, as first home buyers we were unsure on the how to, who to and what to see, what to look out for .... and that is why Amanda and Tibor at Smart Choice Real Estate being so beneficial for us in achieving our goal of home ownership we were given the right advice, put us in contact with the right people who helped us complete our purchase. At no time did we ever feel pressured into anything we were n't comfortable with and most importantly we were treated like real people not a dollar sign in the Real Estate market. We feel we made the right choice the smart choice and will look forward to future sales and purchases with Smart Choice Real Estate. Thank you, Amanda and Tibor, for the time, effort and patience and with our ultimate result.G & R Carter


"Smart Choice " defiantly proved to be a smart choice, when I purchased my new home. The staff were always helpful, polite and on the ball. Amanda was my specific agent and would always keep things moving along in the right direction. The team are happy to go that extra distance and are fun as well. I recommend them.Keith Walters Pukemiro Aug 2016


We recently sold our home through Jinny from Smart Choice, she was professional but friendly, had good knowledge of the local market, gave us great advice and kept us informed and up to date at all times. She worked in with us around our work hours and made what can be a very stressful time go very smoothly. Thank you, Jinny we would defiantly deal through you again, and recommend Smart Choice to anyone selling their home.Elaine & Jim Miller


If you want good service, beyond what is expected then use "Smart Choice". They took on a lot of responsibility on my behalf and found solutions that were outside my expectations of a real estate.  Amanda and Tibor thank you.

My family & I would like to thank Dawn & Amanda from Smart Choice Realty Huntly for the fabulous work they did for us when we brought our house recently. Both Dawn & Amanda went above & beyond to help us through the process of buying our first home & made things as easy as possible for us.
We would thoroughly recommend Smart Choice Realty as Real Estate Agents, they explained every step of the process & no question was too trivial for them to answer.
As first home buyers we had a LOT of questions & Dawn & Amanda answered the phone every time & were able to guide us through the practicalities of the purchase.

Once again Thank You both so much!!!

Best Wishes,

Faith, Errol, Lemmy, Cass, Zombie & Manson.

I really cannot find the words to appraise Amanda and her star attributes that she has done for me on purchasing my property. 
She has kept me well informed from start to finish throughout the whole process and for us this has been a tricky one to deal with but we got there in the end!
Her team are to be commended on making me feel welcomed into the office for short visits and my cuddles with the other star, Amanda's dog Frankie.
I definitely would recommend her or her company to anyone as they are very professional and have the "get the job done" attitude. I will use them in the future should I wish to sell.

I would like to express that the process of purchase for above property was smooth and hassle-free. I hope, I will deal with you in the future for another property.

To those buying or selling that want the best service you must choose “Smart Choice”. We had our property on the market for several years. All local realtors continued to under sell our property in under valuing it. George Barton from Smart Choice Real Estate was astute, seeing the true value of our property and marketing it accordingly sold it. We couldn’t be more pleased with his insights, efforts and achievement in making our sale. I have to say, far better than all the rest.

Yours sincerely
