"After being on the market previously with no result… We wanted to say "Thank You“ so much for the brilliant job you did for us in selling our property at Isobel Street. You are an extremely thorough, pleasant agent to deal with and we could not have wished for a better result so quickly! We consider ourselves very lucky to have met you and will recommend you to anyone wishing to either buy or sell a property. Many thanks."
Murray and Colleen
"Thanks so much for selling my house for me. You worked tirelessly to get a great result. I’m sure you learnt a lot with all the curveballs that came your way regarding x leases. Once again thanks for going above and beyond wouldnt hesitate in recommending you to others"
"Selling your house can be one of the most stressful things you can do, that’s why it is so important to have the right person to help you through this. Steve is approachable, honest and makes every effort to go that extra mile. He ensured we were kept informed and made himself available to answer any questions or concerns we had, even going out of his way to get to know our dogs so their life was a little less stressful as well. He has an energetic, yet calm nature and we really enjoyed dealing with him. Highly Recommend Steve and the team at Harcourts."
Andy and Heather
"We chose to auction our home as we were moving overseas. The thought of this was overwhelming, but Steve made us feel assured. We felt we could ask him anything…. no question was silly. Steve was great with regular communication, feddback and provided us with all the information we needed. We were happy with the results and now have a life ling friend in Steve. We wish him all the best for the future!"

"Steve Sprague. The man known as “Fishy Steve”. He dangles the bait and then reels them in. Obviously a man of courage, judging by the tales of his mountainbiking exploits……… Apart from all that, he did well selling our house. His enthusiasm kept us in the picture all the way, managing to lift my wife’s occasional flagging spirits (no mean feat). So, thank you Steve for a job well done."
"We must say we found Steve very good to deal with the sale of our home and the purchase of 60 Balmoral drive.
He kept us up to date with all the procedures,and we felt no pressure. He was quite reassuring that we could get a good price for our home and he worked to follow it through. We would have no hesitation recommending him to represent Harcourts in the sale of our friends homes. We would like to thank Steve and Harcourts very much for their professional service."

"I have just purchased 193 Spa Road, Taupo. The Listing Agent for that property was Steve Sprague, from Harcourts. Steve is the most amazing Real Estate Agent to deal with. He is honest, up front, listens to you, and has the old fashioned type of morals that I admire in a person. I was an out of town purchaser, and had watched properties in my lower price range being snapped up as soon as they were listed. I thought I would only be able to afford a “stepping stone” type of house. This time around I had Steve advising me, and that truly made the difference. With his kind advice and expertise, I not only bought a house, but I ended up with my dream family home. Steve saved me time, stress and money. I have realised one extra key element to having Steve help you in your search for either selling a property or purchasing one. He understands the wants and needs of both the Vendor and Purchaser, and does it in such a way that both parties feel respected and validated. A good match in all ways."
