“We have nothing but praise for Matt Morton and the Colliers team. From the first moment of dealing with them we were impressed by their outstanding professionalism, comprehensive and attractive marketing strategy and materials, Matt's engaging personality and his proactive approach in connecting with potential buyers (going above and beyond!!). At all times, Matt was adaptable to our timeline and needs, helped us set realistic expectations based on up-to-date market research, recent sales and feedback from investors. Communication between him and us was brilliant every step of the way. We are so pleased with Matt's performance in selling our property and highly recommend him to others!” L & C Silva, Wellington

“Matt's help and service was invaluable. He went the extra mile and was available and friendly, providing prompt responses and information whenever we needed. We'd recommend working with him!” A Chin & T Parker, Dunedin

“I've worked with Matt over 3 years now. Matt and his team has been outstanding in all aspects of the sale and purchase process. Matt and Petrina are a perfect team. They are proactive, genuine and most of all excellent in communication. It's always a pleasure to work with Matt and his team!” T Yang, Dunedin

“I highly recommend using Matt Morton at Colliers international to either sell or buy your next investment property, I have now done both. Matt impressed me with his approach to selling investment property, he is well informed on the market and very easy to deal with, personally I will look forward to doing business again in the future.” Rhys Wilson, Dunedin

"Over the past we have both bought and sold investment property with Matt Morton. We have found him to be fantastic to work with for both buying and selling. Matt has always been honest and fair, he is very quick at answering emails and sorting things super fast when the pressure is on! He is very much attuned to an investors needs and understands the implications of new legislation that affects investors. We look forward to working with Matt again in the future. Thank you very much for the time and effort you put in Matt!." L & G Harper, Dunedin

“We appreciated the very thorough information pack, virtual tour, excellent communication and the friendly professionalism of both Matt and Andy which definitely outshone our recent experience of their competitors. The Openn negotiation auction was great and gave us a transparent and simple process and especially useful for out of town purchasers. We will definitely use their services again in the future. Thanks.” M & D Robertson, Christchurch

"I am writing this reference for Matt Morton & Andy Connelly. My family and I worked with Matt and Andy over several months before securing an investment property in Dunedin. Initially we worked with Matt and Andy when they were acting as selling agent for a vendor. When we were unsuccessful bidders for a property Matt then acted as a buyer's agent for us for a property being sold by another real estate firm. In all our interactions, Matt and Andy were thoroughly professional and responsive. I would not hesitate to use their services again and I fully recommend both to any buyer or seller of a property." R Posa, Auckland

“Matt Morton is an outstanding real estate agent. He is open, honest, sincere and goes out of his way to make sure the seller and purchaser are aware of all goings on, and that both parties are up to date with all information. Matt, is a professional in all aspects of his job. He works extremely hard to get the best results for all concerned and is always keen to look at alternative options. I have purchased 3 houses through Matt, sold 3 through Matt and he is my real estate agent in Dunedin.” Greg Stewart, Mount Maunganui

“Wishing to sell a University Investment property dictated a very limited choice of agents specialising in this area.  Luckily for me, a very experienced property owner suggested I contact Mr Morton.  Previously I had never heard of him.  Matt subsequently marketed and sold my property whilst I was overseas, which added to his workload. I have found him to easily exceed all the usual requirements you would wish from somebody selling your property.  Above all, he listens to what you want to achieve, he’s brutally honest, polite, in short a pleasure to do business with.  He’s very good. Would I use his services again?? Yes, I already am ….” A. Jerrard, Dunedin

“With the completion of our purchase of an apartment in Dunedin we are happy to report on the excellent assistance we received from Matt Morton.  From our initial enquiry by email, Matt kept in regular contact and he supplied all the required information promptly and accurately.  Negotiating the purchase of property in a distant city could be problematic but we were able to proceed with confidence. On our inspection visit to Dunedin Matt arranged the necessary access and gave us adequate opportunity to fully assess what we were looking for, and he was courteous and punctual at every stage.  We would have no hesitation in recommending Matt and Colliers International to future clients.  Our experience on this occasion has been most satisfactory." Peter & Kate Averi, Paraparaumu

“While working as a University Investment Broker at Colliers International in Dunedin, Matt Morton acted for us in the purchase of an investment property for student rental. Matt demonstrated excellent communication skills in keeping us informed throughout the negotiation process in what proved to be a complicated transaction involving price adjustments to accommodate remedial work at the dwelling.  Matt was quick to understand matters and liaised effectively between us, our various agents based in Dunedin and the vendor, which was critical to the overall success of the transaction and the satisfaction of all parties concerned. Matt showed himself to be attentive to detail, highly organised and intuitive to our needs.  He responded well when placed under pressure to meet deadlines and maintained a cheerful demeanour throughout.  On this basis, I am happy to recommend Matt to any prospective business, commercial or property investor” R. Sainsbury, Hawkes Bay
