After inviting submissions to sell our motel, we selected Lindsay Sandes as sole agent as he exuded the professionalism and understanding we thought necessary to achieve a successful sale. 

We believe we were privileged to be served by Lindsay. Aside from being thoroughly professional at all times, he removed the stress of sale with his calm manner and thoughtful approach to all aspects of inspection, addressing queries and satisfying purchaser enquiries, through to successful settlement.

Thank you Lindsay. If you are selling your accommodation business, we recommend contacting Lindsay.

The River Lodge

"Whether you are buying or selling Lindsay is the go to person. Having purchased our business through Lindsay it was obvious who we would go to when it was time to on-sell The River Lodge some years later.

We found Lindsay's handling of our sale nothing less than exceptional, his business ethics and integrity above reproach. His progress reports and follow up faultless. His advice was solid and often what we needed to hear rather than what we wanted to hear, which wasn't easy for him, but vitally important for us to make informed decisions. His support never waned despite the curve balls we threw at him and his patience endless.

Lindsay's involvement with us and like most people he works with, doesn't stop at purchase or sale.  He regularly popped in to see how we were faring long after it was done and dusted and the welcome mat was always out waiting for him. Lindsay's genuine love of what he does, better than most, is evident.  We would recommend him without any hesitation whether it be as a buyer or purchaser for any type of property or business sale if you want it done right".

Ruapehu Country Lodge

"We met Lindsay when purchasing a property in the Central Plateau region.  As purchasers, Lindsay was always available to us for the many questions we had surrounding not only the property sale, but the business sale as well - by phone and personally on many occasions.  He worked tirelessly to complete the sale and his negotiating skills were second to none.  He has visited us several times post settlement and is definitely a ‘go to’ person when we have business questions as he has vast experience as well in the hospitality industry.  We have an ongoing relationship with Lindsay and continue to look forward to his visits when he is in the region".
