What My Clients Have Said About Me

I have known and worked with Andy over the last 28 years, in a range of land-based property activities and businesses. During this time I have come to appreciate his broad knowledge and understanding of land, horticulture and viticulture and diversified farming operations.  His feel for and comprehension of land and its production potential is impressive. 


Andy is professional in his approach and work performance. He has a great ability to recognize and adopt a client’s vision and to set goals and prepare plans to achieve them.  He has strong interpersonal and communication skills.  He works extremely well in a team environment.  He is a good leader but also a great team player, so that others in his team are comfortable to follow his lead and recognize his capabilities.  He has always exhibited a strong work ethic and a dedication towards achievement of objectives. 


Andy has a strong focus on attention to detail and is clear in identifying and addressing the needs of his clients. He is dedicated to give excellence in his work performance and always ensures to the best of his abilities that tasks asked of him are completed with accuracy, precision and delivered on time.


I believe that Andy’s thorough and professional approach coupled to his wide ranging knowledge and level of integrity will enable him to achieve success in the field of real estate.

I have known Andy for 15 years and had a lot to do with him over that time.  I have always been impressed with his knowledge of rural property and the wide range of businesses operated on it.  He has professional experience which he brings to all the areas he works with, and his manner and communications are superb. I have also experienced his team leadership and management skills, which are very strong.

Equipped with his knowledge, experience, professionalism, and approachable style, I consider him to be a valuable resource for anyone involved in land and property matters.

We recently had a very successful sale of our property, Waiheke, on Banks Peninsula.

After trying unsuccessfully to sell the property three years ago with another company, we were pleased to be able to take on Andy Nurse from Harcourts Rural and Lifestyle in Christchurch.

Right from the start Andy was very professional in his approach to marketing the property. He never hesitated to travel the 70 km out to Waiheke to gather information and suggest a plan. He was always willing to ask for advice from his superiors where he felt he needed to.

If it was not for Andy, with his ability to negotiate and compromise, our sale would not have gone through.

Nothing was a problem to Andy and we thoroughly enjoyed working with him. We wish him well with  his career.

We are extremely grateful to Andy Nurse, Harcourts Rural and Lifestyle Sales Consultant, for the enormous amount of time and effort he put into marketing and successfully selling our vineyard and wine business at French Farm Banks Peninsula. 


Andy’s understanding and appreciation of rural property, along with his knowledge and experience in the wine industry, were invaluable in helping us to prepare and present both the property and the business in the best possible way. 


His professionalism and friendly manner enabled Andy to negotiate successfully with both vendor and purchaser, and to facilitate the best outcome for all concerned.


We would strongly recommend Andy Nurse to anyone contemplating sale or purchase of a rural property.
