Just want to say Thank you for your professionalism and respect in helping me achieve my transition to my new property.

I've been in my new house for nearly a month now - and I genuinely have Cameron to thank for that. My situation was a little different to most people buying a house, and I needed my house ASAP.  Cam is an exceptionally professional real estate agent mixed with the perfect blend of friendly and incredibly easy to deal with. Cameron is very approachable, and certainly has a knack of making me feel like I was his only client. Every question I had (and there were a lot) was responded to immediately, every glitch was dealt with promptly, and I was kept fully informed throughout the entire process. Thanks! 


We would like to give you a great big thank you for the way in which you handled the sale of our house. It was a pleasure to deal with you , with your positive friendly manner and we
appreciated the extra mile you went to. This has been a low stress sale and restored our faith in Real Estate agents! We feel you are the best we have dealt with and we have had many sales over the years!

Bill and Linda Ellwood

We sold and purchased through Cameron. Cameron at all times kept us informed on both the sale and the purchase. Nothing was a bother. He is very professional and has an incredibly lovely manner. He has gone the extra mile to make the process run smoothly. We have bought and sold a few properties over the past 20 or so years and can say that he is one of the best agents we have come across. Cam is an asset to Matson and Allan and we know that he will do incredibly well in his career. He has the energy and ability to become a top real estate agent. We wish Cameron all the best for the future and thank him again in assisting us with both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. 


Thank you very much for everything you have done in selling our house, Jill was right when she told me to give you a call. You’ve made it easy and straightforward for us and with a great result in the price. It goes without saying we’ll be calling you again for our next sale.

Jackie Derrick helped us to sell our property in Rolleston. Added to the complication was she did it all remotely for us as myself and family moved from Rolleston to the UK. Jackie’s expert help from afar was efficient, smooth and of course successful as all the efforts from Jackie resulted in a sale price that was good as at the time the market in Rolleston was a bit flat. Her knowledge of the market in Rolleston, can-do attitude and efficiency were all factors that resulted in a successful outcome. We would highly recommend Jackie for anyone wanting to buy or sell in and around the Rolleston area, as she knows her stuff!

Malcom and Joanne Preston

"We have found Jackie an absolute pleasure to work with in the sale of our properties. Jackie works with an up-front, honest approach to her work and has dealt with us and the buyers professionally. She was always available to answer our queries and communicated well. We would choose Jackie to work with again and recommend her to others"

Jenni Kendall

"We have been working with Jackie Derrick of Matson & Allan Real Estate since March 2014. Jackie is always very professional, reliable and really enjoyable to work with. She works extremely hard selling our houses and keeps us updated from start to finish. We would highly recommend Jackie to anyone looking to buy or sell".

Tony & Kerry-Lee Stevenson of Stevenson Builders Ltd

‘Just wanted to pass on a massive thanks to you for all of the effort and advice you put in over the month to help us sell our property, we are so grateful that you did want the best deal for us – not just the first one that came through the door.
Andrew if you will have us again – we definitely will use you again and recommend you to everyone we know who is looking – so thanks so much, you were awesome.

Elliot Jones

Jackie worked hard for us to sell our house in Rolleston. She was thoroughly professional and proactive throughout the process and kept us well informed. Even with the challenge of the first offer falling through Jackie secured the sale soon after with the next buyer. She works with the buyer and seller to get the deal to work for both parties. Jackie's positive and cheerful personality makes her enjoyable and easy to work with. We can confidently recommend Jackie to anyone who is looking to sell their house.

Vaughn & Michaela Fraser

“I would not hesitate to highly recommend Stephan to sell your property. Right from the first contact made Stephan was enthusiastic about selling our property and he had a good handle of where the market may sit for our property. I found him very pleasant and easy to work with and he just made the whole process run smoothly for us. Stephan is very personable and keeps you well informed of how things are going along the way. He was always quick to keep us up to date with where prospective purchasers were at and you were never left wondering what was happening as he always kept us well informed. We had a tenanted property so it was a bit more complicated for open homes but Stephan made the whole process run smoothly and our tenants were respected throughout. We cannot thank Stephan enough for the way he went about selling our property successfully and we couldn’t have ended up with a better result.”

Allan & Lynette Webber

Wow...what a busy 34 hours...and already sold our property. thanks Amelia..your professionalism and quick responses were much appreciated. you made the sale so easy and stress free for us. I would definitely recommend you as a real estate agent.

Mark & Karen

We chose Jackie for the reasons that ultimately rewarded our perception of her. That of an, experienced, competent and calm professional. For those with the knowledge and experience in assessing people Jackie was an easy read. That is, what you both see and hear can be trusted up front in the early stages of the process. She then follows through. Delivery was as promised and once the pressure is on the before mentioned calmness cuts through any noise that can distract others from the outcome you are looking for. An important point in today’s crazy market. Being a local she knows the market intimately. Her price range estimate was bang on with that which we sought both from another agent from another firm and with the 'Registered Valuers' appraisal which we sought independently without telling her. This was in advance of her giving her pricing. This speaks volumes for what I have stated above. I would have no qualms giving a reference to whoever asks or taking a call from those that want to know more.

Gary and Tanya Nightingale

Jackie took the time to understand what was important to us and to understand what our home was all about. She was exceedingly professional and astonishingly quick to respond to all communications. We were very comfortable having Jackie represent us and our home, for which she found the most lovely buyers in no time at all. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jackie.

R&M Robson-Williams

Jackie is simply brilliant at what she does. She is professional, approachable, and knowledgeable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jackie; it was a pleasure dealing with her.

Tracey Keefe

Jackie was thorough and reassuring the whole time. Professional and friendly at the same time - would recommend!

Matt and Kirsty

Jackie was very good, she found us as perfect a house as we could have hoped for, she immediately switched onto what our situation was & left us very very happy. Thank you Jackie.

Harold & Berlita

Absolutely Amazing!!
We initially had planned to get several appraisals when we decided to put our house on the market but after we met with Amelia she made it a very easy decision to sign up with her. We found Amelia very relaxed but knowledgeable and very easy to talk to, she provided us with a lot of advice and help during the whole process. Amelia achieved an amazing result for us and we couldn’t be happier about how everything went.
We will definitely be using Amelia again in the future for any real estate needs. Thank you Amelia

Will and Holly

Absolutely Fantastic. Amelia has been wonderful and very efficient in communication throughout our process in buying our investment property. She has been very helpful in coordinating with the property management company on our behalf, as we are based in Auckland. We managed to get our investment property without any stress and it was possible because of Amelia. Thank you once again Amelia.

Vivet and Robin

Amelia Nisbet - Very professional and knowledgeable of the market.
Amelia was a very approachable person and shared her knowledge of the market. We found her attention to details really helpful and she would seek answers to our questions when needed. She was available for appointments at our convenience and always made sure we had the information we needed. We thoroughly enjoyed our interactions with Amelia and this made the process of buying the house a positive experience. Thank you Amelia for your professionalism and enabling us to purchase an amazing home. One we will treasure.

Ngaire and Tony
