It would come as no surprise to the many people who have employed Rob Jones as their real estate expert, to learn that back in 2001 after only 30 days in the profession, he’d listed 7 properties and sold 5 of them.
After a highly successful and specialised career in the home textile industry where he applied his design, sales and marketing talents with spectacular results, Rob moved in to real estate 13 years ago. But his love of real estate and personal involvement with it actually began when he bought his first property aged 19 back in the UK. It’s a passion that continues to this day.
Approachable and friendly, Rob tackles the challenge of selling a home for his clients with drive and a determination to get the best possible price from the market. He listens to his clients – and responds appropriately to their needs. Hard-working and honest as the day is long, Rob’s English sense of humour and ability to roll with the punches has his loyal “fans” coming back for more. He has sold a significant number of properties in Remuera, Epsom and Mt Eden several times over.
As a resident of the area for many years, Rob has been personally involved in a number of regional and community initiatives. Most notably, Rob serves on the board of Eden Gardens – an iconic natural haven in central Auckland; and is also Chairman of Forest & Bird Auckland Central where he indulges his deep love of conservation. Butterflies, native birds and rare and exotic plants are a particular fascination of his and he has accumulated a considerable knowledge on them. A lover also of fine wines and formerly a top squash player- Rob is a man of many talents and interests.
Aligning himself these days with Adrienne Gooch – another successful and award-winning agent, Rob envisages their complementary team of two will offer clients the best of both worlds - a wonderful chance for the public to harness the considerable resources that these two dynamic agents offer.
My wife and I recently decided to sell our home in Auckland after many years of having it as a rental. We currently live overseas so really needed help that was friendly, informative, effective and straight forward. Adrienne and Rob could not have been easier to deal with. They handled the whole lot from advising on the best options for the current market, advertising in the right media, home dressing and auctioning all competitively priced. We really didn’t need to think about a thing. In the end we exceeded ours, and the markets, expectation on sale price because of the fantastic job done. Adrienne and Rob are superb to deal with and a total professional. If you want to sell, don’t hesitate.

Hi Adrienne, I just wanted to say another huge THANK YOU for everything you've done to help us get into our new home. The move's done & it's looking good, but we never would have got there without your help, both in terms of getting us to the auction when we weren't convinced we'd have a chance & getting stuck in cleaning the kitchen during the move, we really appreciate it! Look forward to having you over for a wine in the next couple of weeks.

Anne Abernethy- Sandringham
Thank you for everything you did in helping me sell my house in Sandringham at auction on the 2nd February. I really appreciated the way you worked tirelessly for me. You were always available when I needed to ask you questions and you always kept me up to date with what was happening with the interested parties in my property. I think one of your best attributes is that you always did what you said you were going to do and without any time delay. I enjoyed the relationship we had and thought that you were very personable as well as extremely professional. Your openness and experienced opinion made the whole process seem much less hassle than I imagined. Once again, my sincere thanks. I wish you all the best for the future.

"The exceptional care you took not only through emails and phone calls when I was in Guangzhou - and the personal care you took when I travelled to NZ for the auction, is I believe unprecedented...your information and personal advice both in handling pre-auction offers and on the auction date made this process seamless and with us feeling that a fair price was paid."
Tim Lewis- Ponsonby
"I have used Adrienne on two occasions to market and sell investment properties on my behalf. Adrienne has acted efficiently and professionally on both occasions. She has also achieved a premium sale price on each occasion for me, with minimal input from myself as vendor. I can highly recommend Adrienne, and I am more than happy to be contacted to discuss her professionalism and her dedication to her work."
"As I reside in the UK this transaction could have caused difficulties, however Adrienne handled the whole procedure with great efficiency enabling the sale to go through smoothly. I was kept informed with each step of the marketing and the sale and felt very confident it was being handled in the best way it could. Adrienne was approachable and extremely helpful which was a great relief to me living on the other side of the world."
"Adrienne was professional, courteous and patient, she showed good attention to detail. The purchaser indicated that her persistence and patience was instrumental in achieving a mutually agreeable sale..."

"we were absolutely delighted with Adrienne's integrity and honesty and with her efforts and attention to detail she showed in our transaction...."
